Titans re-signed OG Kyle DeVan.

Defensive end Pannel Egboh was waived in a corresponding move. DeVan will return to the final offensive line role as the two roster yo-yos trade spots.

Bills signed RB Fred Jackson to one-year, $2.6 million extension through 2015.

The extension comes as somewhat of a surprise. The NFL's oldest running back at 33, Jackson is now signed for roughly $5.24 million over the next two seasons. The arrival of Bryce Brown and Anthony Dixon -- as well as a healthy C.J. Spiller -- will almost certainly prevent Jackson from getting the 252 touches he saw last season, but this contract suggests he will remain a big part of a run-first offense. He is well worth selecting as an RB2/flex at his ninth-round ADP.

Cowboys signed LT Tyron Smith to an eight-year, $98 million extension.

Smith is now set to make $109 million over the next ten years, making him the second highest paid tackle in the league. Still only 23, Smith has already established himself as one of the preeminent tackles, and will anchor a Dallas offensive line that could be the best in the NFL this season. The Cowboys will now turn their attention to locking up Dez Bryant, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Packers signed GM Ted Thompson to a multi-year contract extension.

Thompson, 61, took over as the Packers' general manager in 2005 and has spent 18 years in the organization with a five-year stint in Seattle in between. Since taking over, the Packers have gone 86-57-1 and have won four NFC North titles and one Super Bowl. Thompson is one of the top decision-makers in the league.

NFL suspended Bills LB Nigel Bradham one game for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

It likely arises from his 2013 marijuana arrest, so the Bills knew this was coming. Being counted on for every-down duties in new DC Jim Schwartz's 4-3 defense, Bradham has emerged as the favorite to replace Kiko Alonso in the DeAndre Levy role. When Bradham returns in Week 2, he'll be a candidate to lead the Bills in tackles. Levy had 119 of them last year, and six interceptions.

Sports Illustrated's Robert Klemko reports "at this stage" Darren McFadden has the "starting edge" over Maurice Jones-Drew in the Raiders' backfield.

Klemko, however, does allow that this "should be a committee backfield considering McFadden's injury history." While McFadden may get the "starts," Jones-Drew leading the Raiders in carries is probably the safe bet. McFadden is certainly the more talented runner, but he's never played a full 16-game slate. This is going to be a timeshare. MJD and DMC are currently going in the seventh and eight rounds of fantasy drafts, respectively, as RB3/FLEX options.

Brandon Bostick worked mostly with the Packers' starting offense on Wednesday.

Third-round rookie TE Richard Rodgers drew all the hype during the spring, but that partly had to do with Bostick being sidelined as he recovered from foot surgery. Now healthy, Bostick is getting the bulk of the reps with the ones. By all accounts, he's looked impressive. Bostick capped off a two-minute drill with a fourth-down touchdown to close out practice Wednesday. The best athlete of the bunch at tight end in Green Bay, Bostick needs to be watched closely.

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence has been diagnosed with a broken foot, and will be sidelined 8-10 weeks.

The injury requires surgery. It's a crippling blow for a defensive line that was already the worst in the league, and a terrible bit of luck for the No. 34 overall pick of May's draft. Lawrence suffered the injury getting "slammed to the turf" by LT Tyron Smith in individual drills. Lawrence was all but assured of starting right end duties. The job will now fall to retread Jeremy Mincey, who has only five sacks over his past 26 games. The Cowboys don't have a pass rush.

Cardinals signed CB Patrick Peterson to a five-year, $70 million extension through 2020.

The deal contains $48 million guaranteed. Peterson is now locked up through his age-30 campaign, so it's conceivable he could play out this entire deal. Richard Sherman received $40 million guaranteed on his extension, but Peterson is two years younger and signed a longer deal. In terms of new money, Peterson will make $14 million per year, while Sherman received $14.35 million annually in new cash. Peterson was a top-11 cover corner at Pro Football Focus last season and is still coming into his own. At 6'1/219, he has the size to match up with any receiver. He does get beaten an awful lot for a player some refer to as a "shutdown" corner. Peterson's game tape and metrics to this point suggest he's really good. He's not yet great. But he also just turned 24 years old.

Ronnie Hillman "has usually been the second running back up" during Broncos camp.

Montee Ball is the unquestioned starter, but the competition behind him is wide open. Despite C.J. Anderson being the crowd favorite to win the job, Hillman is ahead at this point in camp. With four fumbles in only 140 career carries, he still has to improve his ball security if he hopes to earn coaching-staff trust. Hillman is currently going undrafted in standard fantasy leagues. We still like Anderson as a better late-round stab if you're handcuffing Ball. GM John Elway has repeatedly referred to Hillman as a "change of pace" back," while bowling-ball Anderson has some similarities to Zac Stacy.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Josh Gordon will argue in his appeal hearing that his positive marijuana test was the result of second-hand smoke.

The news comes to light after it was revealed that Gordon's positive test was barely above the NFL's strict threshold. Gordon would have tested negative for marijuana in Major League Baseball, the Olympics and even the federal government. It shines a light on just how odious the NFL's marijuana policy is. Gordon's appeal will be heard on Friday.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Lions are willing to let walk-year DT Ndamukong Suh reach the open market next offseason.

Per Rapoport, the Lions want an "informed" Suh to "sign a deal he’s happy with." It's a bizarre tact, one that would all but assure Suh leaves as a free agent. Players of his caliber almost never hit the market. It's possible the Lions are simply tired of the Suh experience, but he's an irreplaceable presence up front.
