Cardinals signed DT Ricky Lumpkin off the team's practice squad and waived OL Mike Gibson.

Lumpkin, 24, has never appeared in an NFL game. With four defensive linemen on the injury report for Sunday's game versus the Lions, he'll add needed depth. Gibson was just signed this past week.

Greg Jennings announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons.

Jennings made the announcement via a YouTube video linked below. Even though he played the final three years of his career in Minnesota and Miami, Jennings will forever be remembered as a Packer. He caught 425 passes for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns in his seven seasons with Green Bay, playing a key role in the Packers' Super-Bowl run in 2010. He is not Hall-Of-Fame bound, but he should earn some recognition from Green Bay down the road.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the NFL is investigating a Periscope video which allegedly shows Raiders suspended OLB Aldon Smith smoking an unidentified substance.

The video is titled "Fire up session" and shows a lit, hand-rolled cigarette. While Smith's face is not seen on the video in question, his voice is clearly heard, and the post comes from an account which featured Smith on camera several times. A woman astutely warns Smith he should not be posting the video, but Smith says it is fine because "they don't have my name." He then says his name at the end of the video. Already suspended until at least November, this situation is unlikely to earn Smith any more fans in the league office.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Bills walk-year CB Stephon Gilmore will report for training camp.

"I'm planning to go out to training camp," Gilmore said. "I know what I am. It'll happen eventually." What Gilmore "knows" is he is a top-flight corner, and he wants to be paid like one. The Bills have not been willing to meet that asking price to this point, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes Gilmore will play out the final year of his deal. Gilmore is likely looking for something similar to the five-year, $75-million deal Josh Norman landed this offseason. If he is allowed to hit free agency next spring, he will likely get it.

Sammy Watkins (foot) suggested he is nearing 100 percent.

"As far as sprinting and stuff I’m moving and doing that 100 percent," said Watkins. "Any explosiveness I’m doing that. I’m doing the cuts, but certain things are full speed and certain things aren’t." Watkins said he is still not comfortable with speed cuts, but it is pretty clear he will be ready to go full tilt fairly early in camp. The Bills will likely limit their star playmaker throughout the preseason to avoid any setbacks, but there is little doubt he will be ready Week 1.

MMQB's Peter King said Ezekiel Elliott "better be ready" for 375 carries.

This is likely more of a statement on how much the Cowboys will lean on Elliott than a prediction of his final carry total, but it is not a completely insane number. DeMarco Murray had 392 carries just two seasons ago, and Darren McFadden averaged over 18 carries a game after he took over last year. The Cowboys likely do not want to ride the rookie like they did Murray in 2014, but 300-attempts is well within the realm of possibilities.

In an Instagram post, Le'Veon Bell declared he is "gonna win the appeal" of his four-game suspension.

The suspension stems from what Ian Rapoport described as "several" missed drug tests. Unless Bell has a legitimate reason for missing those tests, it is highly unlikely he wins the appeal. Still, he seems confident. "When I end up missin no games at all," Bell said, "[people] for sure gonna try to love me again." DeAngelo Williams will be Pittsburgh's workhorse back if (while) Bell is sidelined.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Seahawks will meet with disgruntled DE Michael Bennett's agent this week.

Bennett has been unhappy with his contract for quite some time, and he made waves again last week by telling The Huffington Post the Seahawks should "get rid of me" if they do not "think I'm valuable." Bennett still has two years left on a four-year, $32-million contract he signed in 2014. Seattle does not usually negotiate with players this far away from free agency, but they could make an exception considering how long this contract dispute has lingered. Coach Pete Carroll said the team is "gonna make an effort" to keep Bennett happy.

Vikings RT Phil Loadholt has decided to retire after seven seasons in the NFL.

Only 30, Loadholt is the next in an increasingly long line of players who have retired prematurely over the last two seasons. A second-round pick in 2009, Loadholt played his entire career with the Vikings. He missed all of last season with a torn Achilles' tendon, but he was expected to compete with Andre Smith for a starting spot at right tackle. Loadholt was forced to take a significant pay cut in March, so it is possible money plus injury concerns contributed to his decision. With Loadholt out the door, Smith is locked in at right tackle.

Seahawks signed GM John Schneider to a five-year extension through 2021.

ESPN's John Clayton reports the deal will place Schneider "among the highest-paid GMs in the NFL," and is expected to pay him around $3.75 million per year. Ozzie Newsome is currently the league's highest-paid GM. Schneider and Pete Carroll were both entering contract years in 2016; a Carroll extension is believed to be forthcoming. In April, Rotoworld's Patrick Daugherty ranked Schneider No. 3 among NFL GMs, behind only Bill Belichick and John Elway. Schneider has been able to mask mistakes (Matt Flynn, Percy Harvin, Jimmy Graham) with elite college-to-pro talent evaluation, plucking Russell Wilson and Tyler Lockett in the third round, Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor in the fifth, and Thomas Rawls in undrafted free agency, among many others. There isn't an NFC team with a brighter-looking present and future than Schneider's Seahawks.

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.
