Bears agreed to terms with FS Brandon Meriweather on a one-year contract.

Easily the biggest name cut on Saturday, the financial terms of Meriweather's deal have not yet been disclosed. The move is a vote of no confidence in second-year pro Major Wright, who made 24 tackles in 11 games as a rookie. It will likely also allow Chris Harris to stay at his more natural position of strong safety. Meriweather will almost certainly start opposite Harris in Week 1. Meriweather's IDP value should be resuscitated after he notched 68 tackles and three picks last season.

A source with knowledge of the situation told NJ.com that Jason Pierre-Paul's hand "is going to be okay" following Saturday's fireworks scare.

ESPN, the New York Daily News, and NJ.com are all now essentially disputing Twitter rumors that Pierre-Paul had lost fingers and/or parts of his hand. ESPN's Chris Mortensen tweeted Sunday that Pierre-Paul's injury "may not be game or season threatening." The exact nature of JPP's injury remains unclear.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, "early indications are" Giants unsigned franchise player Jason Pierre-Paul's hand injury is "not career threatening."

Schefter reports doctors are still in the process of determining the full extent of JPP's injuries sustained in Saturday's fourth-of-July fireworks accident. But the "early indications" are not as bleak as Twitter-based rumors, which indeed hinted Pierre-Paul's career could be in doubt. Various unconfirmed rumors have had Pierre-Paul missing fingers and/or parts of his hand.

Andy Slater of WINZ in Florida reports Giants unsigned franchise player Jason Pierre-Paul suffered a "severe" hand injury during a fireworks accident on the fourth of July.

JPP is from Florida and played college ball at USF. He has not signed his franchise tender and therefore is currently not under contract. If the hand injury is severe enough, the Giants could rescind Pierre-Paul's tender and be off the hook for his $14.813 million salary, sending JPP into unrestricted free agency. We'll wait for the rumors to be confirmed to pass along anything definitive, but there are whispers that JPP may have lost fingers and/or parts of his hand.

The Denver Post's Troy Renck anticipates Montee Ball mixing in for "seven to eight" carries per game behind C.J. Anderson.

Renck has Anderson ticketed for 18 carries a game. Before flopping last year following a preseason appendectomy, Ball averaged 4.66 yards per carry as a change-of-pace back behind Knowshon Moreno as a rookie in 2013. Ball's career YPC average currently stands at 4.18. Ball has been a fantasy disappointment through two NFL seasons, but he can be effective in a complementary role. He'll also offer handcuff appeal behind Anderson.

According to Raiders OL coach Mike Tice, Trent Richardson shed weight this offseason, which helped some of his quickness to return.

We've been pining for T-Rich to shed weight for years. It sounds like he's finally done so, and according to Tice it showed during the offseason program. "I thought the young man out of Alabama came on," said Tice. "He lost some weight, his quickness came around." Richardson is battling Roy Helu and Latavius Murray for snaps in Oakland's backfield. In all likelihood, Murray will be the Week 1 starter with Helu playing on passing downs.

ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount believes Christine Michael is on the roster bubble.

Blount suggests Michael could lose his roster spot to impressive UDFA Thomas Rawls, a physical runner who caught the coaching staff's attention at spring practices. The 62nd overall pick in the 2013 draft, Michael has special physical attributes and a 4.88 career YPC average, but has earned just 52 carries through two seasons and has never seemed to earn the coaches' trust. Still only 24 years old, Michael would certainly generate interest on waivers. The Seahawks might be able to get a late-round pick for him if he's made available for trade.

Packers TE Andrew Quarless was arrested in Miami Saturday morning after allegedly firing a gun twice during an altercation.

Quarless tried to flee the scene and hide the gun in a plant, but he was arrested and charged with discharging a firearm in public, a first-degree misdemeanor with penalties of up to one year in jail in Florida. No matter what happens in the legal system, Quarless is likely to face a significant suspension from the NFL. Nothing more than a mediocre talent, Quarless' days with the Packers could be finished.

CBS Dallas-Fort Worth's Mike Fisher reports the Cowboys could announce a long-term deal with Dez Bryant as early as Monday.

"The two sides having moved to such a negotiating comfort level," Fisher said, "that there is discussion about announcing a done deal following the July 4 weekend." Rumors of an imminent deal between Bryant and the Cowboys have been swirling for days, but we have yet to hear anything official from either camp. The two sides have until July 15 to hash out a long-term deal.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Cowboys believe unsigned franchise player Dez Bryant is bluffing about holding out and missing games.

The two sides met Friday, and Cole reports "no progress" was made. Cole went as far as to say the Cowboys believe Bryant is having money problems and wouldn't be able to afford missing paychecks. Dallas isn't budging off the long-term offer it already made to Bryant and will either tell him to sign the deal or play out the season on the one-year, $12.82 million franchise tender.

NFL suspended Chargers TE Antonio Gates four games for violating the league's PED policy.

This one is a shocker. Headed into his 13th NFL campaign, Gates has always been a model NFL citizen, both on- and off-the-field. In a statement, Gates said he never "knowingly" ingested a banned substance. While possibly true, it's the oldest PED excuse in the book. Now 35, Gates has been thus far ageless as Philip Rivers' go-to target, but his absence will free up a massive amount of looks for Keenan Allen and Stevie Johnson, and give Ladarius Green the opportunity he's deserved for some time now. Missing such a huge chunk of the fantasy season right off the bat, it's hard to sell Gates as a TE1.

NFL suspended Cowboys MLB Rolando McClain four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

McClain was originally believed to be facing a four-game fine, which would have meant three failed tests. A fourth failed test triggers a suspension. McClain simply can't stay out of his own way, though this is his first league-imposed suspension. It would likely be his second had he not "retired" in May 2013. McClain is coming off a renaissance year for the Cowboys, but is recovering from a knee scope in addition to his suspension. The end to his 2014-15 was marred by repeated head issues. McClain turns 26 in July. He's likely one strike away from being out of the NFL.
