Dwayne Bowe insists he didn't want out of Kansas City at the trade deadline, and says he wants to finish his career with the Chiefs.

"Why wouldn’t I want to stay here? It’s a no-brainer for me," Bowe said, who became "emphatic" at the topic. "I never said I didn’t want to be here. This is where it started for me. This is where people know me from. That’s crazy to me." Yahoo Sports reported Bowe "very badly" wanted out of Kansas City, but he never publicly commented on the situation. Despite what Bowe says now, whether he's back for a seventh season in 2013 will depend in large part on what kind of front-office housecleaning is conducted. It's hard to see him returning if GM Scott Pioli is retained. The Kansas City Star considers him "unlikely" to re-sign.

Former Cardinals DT Darnell Dockett is retiring from football.

He will sign a one-day deal to retire with the Cardinals on Monday. 35-year-old Dockett spent the last two seasons out of football following an ACL tear. He will hang 'em up with 40.5 career sacks -- seventh most in Cardinals franchise history -- and three Pro Bowl appearances. In his prime, Dockett was one of the NFL's premier interior rushers. Dockett lacks Hall of Fame credentials, but he deserves a spot in the Cardinals' Ring of Honor.

Ameer Abdullah (shoulder) avoided the active/PUP list to begin Lions camp.

Players who aren't cleared to practice go on active/PUP. This means Abdullah has been cleared and should be all systems go following offseason shoulder surgery. Although Abdullah's rookie year was a disappointment from a fantasy standpoint, he did average 4.70 yards per carry in the Lions' final ten games and should see more volume as a sophomore. Concerns on Abdullah's ceiling stem from Theo Riddick's near-monopolization of running back receiving work and the Lions' insistence on using a "big back" to handle short-yardage and goal-line carries. Abdullah is a middle-round fantasy pick.

A league source told the Cincinnati Enquirer that Tyler Eifert's ankle rehab is "on schedule and progressing as planned."

What this means exactly for Eifert's return isn't clear, but it's better than hearing Eifert's recovery is behind schedule or not progressing as planned. The Cincy Enquirer says that "at the time of" Eifert's surgery on May 27 "the plan was for him to be ready for the Sept. 11 regular season opener in New York." Multiple reports since have stated Eifert is unlikely to be ready for Week 1. The Bengals may not know for sure until late August.

Ravens TE Dennis Pitta (hip surgeries) avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

It's an indication that Pitta is indeed 100 percent or very close to it after appearing in just seven games since the end of the 2012 season. He'll be eligible to practice on Thursday. If Pitta is capable of becoming a contributor, the Ravens could field more two-tight end sets with him and Ben Watson on the field together. Maxx Williams and Crockett Gillmore would be the odd men out.

Chris Conley ran as the Chiefs' first-team X receiver this spring.

Jeremy Maclin is Kansas City's Z receiver, with Albert Wilson moving inside to the slot to replace Jason Avant. Wilson may still start in two-receiver sets, but it was clear late last season that the Chiefs wanted Conley more involved. He scored a touchdown in the team's Wild Card win over Houston and caught five passes in Kansas City's Divisional Round loss to the Patriots. A SPARQ freak at 6-foot-2, 213, Conley has some appeal in best-ball fantasy leagues.

Joe Flacco avoided the active/PUP list to begin training camp.

Just as expected. Flacco tore his ACL and MCL in Week 11 last year, but his recovery progressed ahead of schedule and he resumed throwing without restrictions after OTAs. "He looks 100 percent to me," Kamar Aiken observed earlier this month. "Looks the exact same." Flacco isn't a sexy fantasy pick, but he has a favorable early-season schedule and last year's Ravens led the NFL in pass attempts. Flacco is a sneaky bet to finish this year as a low-end QB1.

The New York Daily News' Ralph Vacchiano reports the Giants are optimistic Victor Cruz "can return to his old form."

Vacchiano warned to buy into that optimism "at your own risk" before adding anything the Giants get from Cruz this season "would be a bonus." Cruz has not played a snap since October of 2014 and barely got in any work during the offseason program. Even if he is able to stay healthy, he will be at best the No. 3 option in the passing game behind Odell Beckham and rookie Sterling Shepard. Cruz is a low-upside fantasy gamble.

The Kansas City Star's Terez Paylor reports Spencer Ware "caught lots of passes in OTAs."

This is potentially bad news for Charcandrick West, who seemed more likely than Ware to handle passing-down work when Jamaal Charles needs a breather. ESPN's Adam Teicher already labeled Ware the No. 2 behind Charles, and it looks like that could be the case in the passing game as well. Ware is a much better late-round flier than West.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Le'Veon Bell's potential four-game suspension is the result of "several" missed drug tests.

Rapoport added the Steelers have known about the potential suspension "for some time." Bell is planning to appeal, but his chances for success seem slim if it is true he missed multiple tests. DeAngelo Williams will be a sure-fire RB1 as long as Bell is sidelined.

Walk-year QB Drew Brees said he and the Saints have not seriously discussed a contract extension since March.

Brees is set to count $30 million against the cap in the final year of his deal. With free agency all but wrapped up, the Saints do not have much incentive to lower his cap charge with an extension, and it does not appear they are terribly concerned about Brees bolting next spring. Brees has said he will not discuss a new deal during the season, giving the two sides around a month and a half to work something out. It would still be surprising if Brees entered the season without a new deal, but it is clearly not out of the question.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Terry Pluto reports Browns coach Hue Jackson "has drawn up plays" for WR Terrelle Pryor.

Pluto says the plays are designed to get the ball in Pryor's hands and "let him run." With a receiver corps devoid of playmaking ability outside of rookie Corey Coleman, Jackson is making the right call by attempting to use Pryor's game-breaking traits to full effect. Now the former quarterback just needs to show well enough in camp to earn the role. In addition to Pryor, the Browns should be looking to utilize sophomore RB Duke Johnson's talents in the passing game.
