Giants selected Virginia Tech RB David Wilson with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

The Giants close out the quickest and trade-heaviest first-round in years by grabbing a 1-2 punch for Ahmad Bradshaw. A two-sport (track) star for the Hokies, Wilson was the 2011 ACC Player of the Year after rushing for a school-record 1,709 yards. Though his instincts, hands, and durability are concerns, Wilson has outstanding burst laterally as well as north and south. Much like Bradshaw, he's constantly fighting for extra yards. Wilson should contribute immediately for the G-Men, accruing RB3/flex value in fantasy leagues while Ahmad Bradshaw falls back to low-end RB2 territory.

Lions activated RB Joique Bell (knee, Achilles') from the active/PUP list.

It's not a moment too soon for the 29-year-old veteran, who isn't facing heat from just change-of-pace back Ameer Abdullah, but early-down prospect Zach Zenner. Provided he's in game shape, Bell will be the Lions' primary chain mover in Week 1, but he can't afford a slow start like the one he had in 2014. Abdullah is talented enough to begin stealing work from the word go.

Seahawks waived WR Kevin Norwood.

The No. 123 overall pick of last year's draft, Norwood had the looks of a flop from the beginning. One month shy of his 26th birthday, Norwood never reached 40 receptions in a college season. Norwood is a good athlete, but he didn't contribute enough on special teams to keep his roster spot. It's foreboding for his NFL future that he couldn't even make it to final cuts.

Robert Griffin III has been benched.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of Our Lives. Beset by never-ending drama and an inability to stay at 100 percent, RGIII has met his predictable end for the league's most dysfunctional franchise. It's possible he won't even be the first man off the bench, with vanilla coach Jay Gruden preferring Colt McCoy's pop-gun skill-set to RGIII's unrefined dual-threat aesthetic. Much of Griffin's issues are his own doing, but he's received zero help from a franchise that's offered bafflingly little support since making him a centerpiece three years ago. A trade or release is best for all parties involved, and the sooner, the better.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said WR T.Y. Hilton is in the league's concussion protocol.

Hilton likely suffered the injury during the third preseason game, but he was not diagnosed until after the game. His status for Week 1 is unclear. The Colts open the season against the Bills in 13 days.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden named Kirk Cousins the team's starting quarterback.

Gruden said Cousins "is the best quarterback on our roster" and will be the starter for all of 2015. That may be the intention today, but nothing in the Redskins' recent history suggests they will slide through the entire season with one quarterback. Cousins owns a 59-percent career completion rate and has thrown 19 interceptions to 18 touchdowns in his three-year career. Robert Griffin III and even Colt McCoy could still make starts this season.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport expects the Bills to cut a quarterback after naming Tyrod Taylor their starter.

Coach Rex Ryan has said the team would probably keep three quarterbacks, but he has been anything but forthcoming about his quarterbacks during the last month. E.J. Manuel seems like the obvious choice if Buffalo decides to release someone, but Matt Cassel's $4.75 million cap charge could earn him the boot. The Bills would get all of that $4.75 million off the cap by releasing Cassel.

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reports the Bills have decided Tyrod Taylor will be their starting quarterback.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hinted at this possibility earlier Monday. Taylor only attempted 35 regular season passes as Joe Flacco's backup in Baltimore for four seasons, but he offers the Bills a rushing dimension veteran Matt Cassel cannot match. That rushing ability should land Tyrod Taylor on the streaming radar as long as he holds the job. He has 108 yards and a touchdown on the ground this preseason.

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys have no interest in free agent RB Fred Jackson "at this time."

"At this time" is a very important part of the report. Reports have suggested the Cowboys are comfortable with their committee of Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar, but that could change if the trio struggles early in the season. Jackson went to high school in the Dallas area.

Tom Brady and the NFL failed to reach a settlement Monday in their dispute over Brady's four-game suspension.

The talks went nowhere and the hearing was over quickly. Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo reports a decision from U.S. District Judge Richard Berman is expected tomorrow or Wednesday. We are finally nearing the end of this ridiculous saga.

Steelers acquired K Josh Scobee from the Jaguars.

With Garrett Hartley suffering a potentially serious injury in the third preseason game, the Steelers needed to add another option. Scobee has been the Jaguars kicker since 2004. Jason Myers should take over the kicking duties in Jacksonville, while Scobee suddenly becomes fantasy-relevant in Pittsburgh.

Bills released RB Fred Jackson.

This one is a shocker. Jackson missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury, but showed he still had juice in his legs in the third preseason game, rushing five times for 48 yards and a touchdown. Releasing Jackson suggests the Bills are confident Karlos Williams (illness) and LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be ready Week 1. An eight-year veteran, Jackson has been with Buffalo his entire career. He should get a long look from teams in need of veteran running back help. The Cowboys, Browns and Patriots could make some sense.
