ESPN's John Clayton and Chris Mortensen believe impending free agent Joe Flacco could command over $20 million per season in his new contract.

"He's now made a case for $20 million a year," Clayton said on SportsCenter Monday. "And I think he's gonna try to hold to that. Last season what I was hearing was he was asking for about $17 million. ... (We'll) see if he can get over Drew Brees' contract. I think he can." Mortensen agrees that an annual $20 million is "not unreachable" for the Ravens' quarterback. It would be a ludicrous sum of money for a player with Flacco's solid but unspectacular regular-season résumé, but his dominating postseason and barren state of the QB position around the league have left him with leverage to spare. If Flacco is intent on playing $20 million hardball, the Ravens may opt to slap him with the $14.642 million franchise tag.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Teddy Bridgewater's knee injury was "gruesome," and that his teammates were "disturbed and horrified," with some even throwing up.

It sounds like we're dealing with a Kevin Ware/Paul George-type situation. An ambulance and paramedics were summoned when Bridgewater went down, with the paramedics being something longtime observers had never seen before. Bridgewater isn't going to play this season. The question is fast becoming if he'll be ready for 2017.

Packers released P Tim Masthay.

Masthay has been the Pack's punter since 2010, but they'll move forward with Jake Schum, who was claimed off waivers on Tuesday. Masthay was due $1.2 million after coming in 14th in net-punting average last season. He'll get calls whenever someone needs a punter.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said DeVante Parker (hamstring) needs to do "the little things" off the field to stay healthy.

Parker tweaked his left hamstring in Monday's practice after missing several weeks of camp with a similar injury. "I feel like I’ve been through this with Demaryius [Thomas] in Denver," Gase said. "Sometimes it takes some guys more time to learn more than others. Eventually ... he will know how to push through certain kinds of pain." Gase is clearly frustrated with the sophomore, who has fallen behind Kenny Stills on the depth chart. Parker still has more fantasy upside than Stills, but he is a risky pick in the eighth round.

Bucs placed LG J.R. Sweezy (back) on the reserve/PUP list.

Sweezy's outlook has gotten progressively worse since he went under the knife in April. He'll be first eligible to return in Week 8, but it doesn't seem like a guarantee. Kevin Pamphile, who has made only four career starts, will fill in at left guard. It's a concern for a team that wants to run the ball down teams' throats.

Patriots placed RT Sebastian Vollmer (hip, shoulder) on the reserve/PUP list.

Vollmer is expected to miss the entire season, but the Patriots are at least creating the possibility that he could return. Marcus Cannon will fill in for however long Vollmer is sidelined.

Patriots placed RB Dion Lewis (knee) on the reserve/PUP list.

He will be eligible to return in Week 7, but it is unclear if he will be ready by then. After the team's Week 9 bye might be a more realistic target. Set to miss most of the fantasy year, Lewis does not needs to be drafted in standard formats.

Redskins placed RB Keith Marshall on injured reserve with a sprained elbow, ending his season.

Marshall was originally given a three-week timeline upon going down in the third preseason game, but either his prognosis got worse, or the Redskins used his injury as an opportunity to free up a roster spot. Marshall was a hyped seventh-rounder out of Georgia, but didn't make nearly as much noise once the pads went on. Injuries are nothing new for Marshall, whose time in the SEC was marked by one ailment after another. UDFA Rob Kelley will begin the year as Matt Jones' direct backup.

Steelers placed TE Ladarius Green (ankle, headaches) on the reserve/PUP list.

It was the expected outcome even though no one really knows what's truly sidelining the fifth-year tight end. Green and the Steelers both claim it is his ankle, but his agent said earlier this month that his ankle was fine. The headache rumors have not been completely debunked. Considering just how up in the air the situation is, Green shouldn't be stashed in re-draft leagues. Jesse James will open the year as the Steelers' pass catcher at tight end.

John Brown (headaches, concussion) has been cleared to resume playing.

He could suit up for Thursday's exhibition finale, but almost certainly won't. Brown hasn't played a snap this preseason, but the Cardinals obviously aren't going to further risk his health. The lingering nature of Brown's concussion issues is a definite concern, but he'll be out there for Week 1. Brown has become a risk/reward WR3 in the Cardinals' crowded receiver corps.

Vikings released C John Sullivan.

The Vikings could not find a trade partner, so they cut the cord on Sullivan in favor of Tony Sparano pal Joe Berger. Still only 31 years old, Sullivan was one of the top centers in football in 2014, before missing all of 2015 with back problems. There are a number of teams around the league that could use help on the pivot. After losing Nick Martin, the Texans immediately come to mind.

49ers placed WR Bruce Ellington on injured reserve with a torn hamstring, ending his season.

Competing for a starting job, Ellington was an intriguing sleeper headed into training camp. His loss further thins San Francisco's embarrassingly-thin receiver corps, and means recently-acquired Jeremy Kerley could have to man the slot. Coach Chip Kelly has almost nothing to work with on offense. Now 25, Ellington will head into the final year of his rookie deal with all of 19 career catches.
