According to SI's Peter King, the Saints are "counting" on Mark Ingram (knee, toe) to be a "200-touch player" this year.

Ingram was on pace for 213 touches before turf-toe surgery ended his rookie year. While we don't anticipate Ingram's role changing much in 2012 -- he'll be a committee back along with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles -- he could get a lift with better luck in terms of goal-line opportunities. We're not bullish on Ingram as more than an RB3 in 2012 fantasy, but he's a lot better value this year than he was in 2011. His ADP has gone from the fourth round to the eighth.

Chiefs signed first-round QB Patrick Mahomes to a four-year, $16.4 million contract.

With Mahomes' signing, only five first-rounders have yet to ink their contracts. The Chiefs' quarterback of the future, Mahomes is expected to begin the year on the sideline behind Alex Smith, but we would expect him to make rookie starts. The days of first-year first-rounders learning on the bench have gone the way of Brett Favre. A gunslinger who looks to create big plays, Mahomes could be too aggressive for his own good as a young player, but has monster upside for a team that's been saddled with arch-conservative quarterback play the past four seasons.

Panthers released/failed physical OT Michael Oher.

The Panthers' former left tackle, Oher entered the concussion protocol last Week 4 and has remained there since. "The brain is a scary thing," Oher posted on social media following the announcement. "You have to be careful with it." The Panthers spent the offseason preparing for life after Oher, lavishing money on LT Matt Kalil and using a second-round pick on Taylor Moton. Oher, whose career was stalling before he surprisingly emerged as the Panthers' blindside protector, turned 31 in April. His NFL future is looking bleak.

Cardinals re-signed RB Chris Johnson to a one-year contract.

It's the best possible outcome for the former 2,000-yard rusher, who turns 32 in September. Johnson has found a nice niche as a Bruce Arians reserve, but was limited to four games by a groin injury last season. His explosion is long gone, but Johnson can still follow blocks and go station to station. The Cardinals' official website expects him to remain the No. 2 behind David Johnson. A committee would emerge were DJ to go down with injury, limiting Johnson's appeal as a handcuff.

Panthers signed RG Trai Turner to a four-year, $45 million extension through 2021.

The deal includes $20.5 million guaranteed, and makes Turner a top-three guard in terms of average annual salary. Interim GM Marty Hurney immediately got to work on what had been one of ex-GM Dave Gettleman's goals. The No. 92 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Turner has turned in back-to-back Pro Bowl campaigns, though Pro Football Focus charted him as having a down 2016. He dealt with both knee and ankle injuries last season. Turner turned 24 in June.

Packers RBs coach Ben Sirmans said fourth-round RB Jamaal Williams will open camp as the No. 2 running back.

With former receiver Ty Montgomery atop the depth chart, the No. 2 job in Green Bay could end up being a valuable fantasy asset. Williams will get the nod entering camp, but Sirmans made it clear everyone will get their shot. "The biggest thing is just competition," Sirmans said. "With so many different guys, somebody is going to have to rise to the top." Aside from Williams, fifth-rounder Aaron Jones is the best bet to earn the No. 2 job.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Carson Palmer wore his arm out last offseason.

"Last year, he kind of came in September, had already worn his arm out by overthrowing all summer," Arians said. "We found a nice regimen, November and December he was playing as good as he’s ever played." The rest seemed to work, as Palmer was the QB8 over the final eight weeks of last season, and the Cardinals have kept that regimen going this offseason. Currently being drafted behind the likes of Carson Wentz, Palmer is a great value.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Le'Veon Bell "plans to play a full 16-game season."

Meaning he does not plan to holdout into the regular season. According to NFL Network's Ike Taylor, there is a "strong possibility" he will skip at least part of training camp, something he is able to do without fine because he has yet to sign his franchise tender. On the contract front, Bell said he turned down an offer for reportedly "over" $12 million per year because he wants to be paid like a running back and a No. 2 receiver, a number Taylor thinks is around $15 million. That is probably not going to happen anytime soon considering the Steelers can franchise him again next year for around $14.5 million, but Bell should completely reshape the running back market when he signs a long-term deal.

NFL Network's Stacey Dales reports there's "internal optimism" Matthew Stafford will be extended in the next two weeks.

With Derek Carr resetting the market, the Lions should already have Stafford's deal in place. Stafford projects for close to the $25 million AAV the Raiders gave Carr, though he’s older and coming off a slightly worse 2016. The Lions are hoping to have something done around the start of training camp.

NFL suspended Packers WR Geronimo Allison one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

It stems from Allison's misdemeanor marijuana possession charge that was settled back in April. Alison will be back Week 2 and figures to have a decent chance at securing the No. 4 receiver job in Green Bay's offense, though the team has consistently churned out receiver talent in recent years. He's certainly not a lock.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chargers first-round WR Mike Williams may need season-ending back surgery on a herniated disk.

Williams recently received a second epidural in an effort to try to be ready at some point in training camp, but the team is preparing as if he won't be ready. There's a chance it won't even help at all, and Williams would then need surgery. The No. 7 overall pick, Williams missed the entire spring and has fallen way behind. Even if he manages to recover at some point, he's highly unlikely to make a year-one impact. The good news for the Chargers is they're well-stocked at receiver with Keenan Allen back from a torn ACL, Tyrell Williams coming off a breakout 2016, Dontrelle Inman proving capable as a No. 3, and Travis Benjamin as a deep threat. Williams allegedly may have "masked" the injury in the pre-draft process.

Coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that Cam Newton (shoulder) is throwing to teammates in summer workouts in Baltimore.

"Apparently his shoulder is fine," said Rivera. Newton did some light throwing at last month's minicamp, but it sounds like he's ramped it up in the month-plus of off time between then and next week's training camp, where he should come back at or near 100 percent. Newton is much farther along in his rehab than Andrew Luck.
