ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that former Saints DC Gregg Williams has met with the Titans and is on the verge of becoming Mike Munchak's assistant head coach.

Williams is still seeking NFL reinstatement after the Bounty Scandal, but appears set to reunite with Munchak after being suspended for the entire 2012 season. According to Schefter, Williams could have his suspension removed before the Super Bowl, allowing him to finalize a contract with the Titans. One of the NFL's most blitz-heavy minds, Williams has a strong background in the 4-3 defense and will work alongside current DC Jerry Gray, who served on his defensive staff during their time in Buffalo.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel confirms Eddie Lacy reported to Packers training camp weighing 260 pounds last July.

That's 29 pounds above Lacy's Combine weigh-in. Per the Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn, "estimates in June" were that Lacy had dropped 15-20 pounds, bringing his weight into the 240-245 range. One NFC personnel director noted post-college weight gains aren't out of the norm for ex-Alabama running backs. "Trent Richardson was like 20 pounds heavier when he reported (to the Colts) than when he came out of there," said the executive. "He lost all his quickness. Lacy's got a little bit of a knucklehead in him, too."

Blaine Gabbert "has a good grasp" of Chip Kelly’s offense.

Gabbert is the favorite to start after getting most of the first-team reps this offseason. "Many in the organization" see him as a better fit than Colin Kaepernick, who missed OTAs and was limited at minicamp. Even with Kaepernick ready for training camp, it sounds like the starting job is Gabbert’s to lose. The 49ers can potentially save $2 million in roster bonuses from benching Kaepernick.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports suspended WR Josh Gordon can be reinstated after August 1.

Gordon met with Roger Goodell in New York on Monday. The meeting was initiated by Goodell, potentially a sign that Goodell is at least considering reinstating Gordon before Week 1. Gordon can formally submit for reinstatement on August 1. Gordon's initial reinstatement application was denied on April 12, and "he was told to come back and try again on August 1." Gordon hasn't played in an NFL football game since December of the 2014 season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL will still require the players implicated in the Al Jazeera America report on performance-enhancing drugs to participate in an interview on the first day of training camp.

James Harrison made headlines by submitting a sworn affidavit denying the allegations last week, but it appears every implicated player submitted their own written statements as well. The league has rejected the NFLPA's contention that the statements constitute reasonable cooperation, and they assert the players are required to submit to in-person interviews. It is likely Harrison has a different opinion on the matter. Free agent OLB Mike Neal is the first player scheduled to be interviewed.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports Darren McFadden (elbow) "hopes" to return during the preseason.

McFadden will have scans on his broken elbow Monday. Given a two-month timetable after undergoing surgery in mid-June, McFadden could theoretically be ready by the Cowboys' third preseason game on August 25. With Ezekiel Elliott's immediate future in question following assault allegations -- although early indications suggest the allegations are unfounded -- McFadden's health has suddenly taken on increased importance.

NFL suspended Colts DL Arthur Jones four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

It is yet another setback for Jones in what has been an extremely disappointing three years in Indianapolis. Jones was limited to nine games after signing a five-year, $33-million deal in 2014, and he missed all of last season after tearing ligaments in his ankle in the preseason. With Henry Anderson (ACL) still questionable for Week 1, the Colts are extremely thin along the defensive line. That lack of depth matched with the pay cut he accepted in March should ensure Jones keeps his roster spot, but it would not be surprising if this is his last season in Indianapolis.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Clifton Brown reports Kamar Aiken is the Ravens' No. 2 receiver heading into camp.

In a show of how confusing the receiver situation is in Baltimore, ESPN's Jamison Hensley listed Mike Wallace as the No. 2 receiver on Thursday. Steve Smith Sr. is the consensus No. 1, but that assumes he is healthy coming off an Achilles' tear at age 37. It is likely someone in the Ravens' receiving corps returns solid fantasy value this season, but it is basically impossible to pick who that will be at this point.

Dan Durkin of the Chicago Athletic agrees with the notion that the Bears will use a committee at running back this season.

One of the better football analysts in Chicago, Durkin notes that a John Fox team has only once had a running back log 60 percent of the carries, and fifth-round power back Jordan Howard "closely resembles the physical profile Fox looks for at the position." Durkin anticipates Jeremy Langford opening the season atop the depth chart, but foresees the Bears "(riding) the hot hand on game day."

Mike Leslie of WFAA Channel 8 in Dallas reports Ezekiel Elliott can prove his innocence against his assault accuser.

Elliott reportedly "has messages saved on his phone proving his ex-girlfriend is trying to set him up." Four witnesses dispute the assault ever took place, while TMZ released a 9-1-1 call of Elliott's accuser, Tiffany Thompson, who sounded quite calm and collected on the phone. Thompson accused Elliott of beating her for a week straight. The Cowboys do not believe the woman's claims.

CSN Bay Area's Scott Bair reports the Raiders "certainly hope" fifth-round RB DeAndre Washington wins a role in camp.

The most likely role for the Texas Tech product is on passing downs, but he will have to prove he can handle himself in pass protection to win the job. Washington could also take away some of the early-down work from Latavius Murray, who the Raiders have publically expressed frustration with all offseason. Washington should be given every shot to earn a role. Whether the fifth-round rookie takes advantage will be a story to watch throughout camp.

According to the police report, four people who witnessed the incident between Tiffany Thompson and Ezekiel Elliott disputed Thompson's assault claims.

One of the witnesses was in the driver's seat of the car where the assault was alleged to have taken place. The other three witnesses "observed the entire interaction" from the parking lot. Elliott has not been charged with any crimes, and police referred Thompson to the Prosecutor's Office due to conflicting statements between her and the witnesses. The Cowboys have said they do not believe Elliott did anything wrong. The league is looking into the incident.
