Lions agreed to terms on a five-year, $25 million deal with CB Chris Houston.

The first cornerback domino finally falls. Houston was clearly the Lions' top cover man last season, often used to shadow opposing No. 1 receivers. He's miscast in that role, but would be an excellent No. 2 corner if the Lions choose to add a legit shutdown guy via the free agency or the draft. Now that Houston has signed, the markets for Aqib Talib, Sean Smith, Brent Grimes and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie could develop quickly.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Le'Veon Bell "plans to play a full 16-game season."

Meaning he does not plan to holdout into the regular season. According to NFL Network's Ike Taylor, there is a "strong possibility" he will skip at least part of training camp, something he is able to do without fine because he has yet to sign his franchise tender. On the contract front, Bell said he turned down an offer for reportedly "over" $12 million per year because he wants to get paid like a running back and a No. 2 receiver, a number Taylor thinks is around $15 million. That is probably not going to happen anytime soon considering the Steelers can franchise him again next year for around $14.5 million, but Bell should completely reshape the running back market when he signs a long-term deal.

NFL Network's Stacey Dales reports there's "internal optimism" Matthew Stafford will be extended in the next two weeks.

With Derek Carr resetting the market, the Lions should already have Stafford's deal in place. Stafford projects for close to the $25 million AAV the Raiders gave Carr, though he’s older and coming off a slightly worse 2016. The Lions are hoping to have something done around the start of training camp.

NFL suspended Packers WR Geronimo Allison one game for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

It stems from Allison's misdemeanor marijuana possession charge that was settled back in April. Alison will be back Week 2 and figures to have a decent chance at securing the No. 4 receiver job in Green Bay's offense, though the team has consistently churned out receiver talent in recent years. He's certainly not a lock.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Chargers first-round WR Mike Williams may need season-ending back surgery on a herniated disk.

Williams recently received a second epidural in an effort to try and get him ready for some point during training camp, but the team is preparing as if he won't be ready. There's a chance it won't even help at all, and Williams would then have to get surgery. The No. 7 overall pick in April, Williams has been hurt seemingly ever since being picked. He missed the entire spring and has fallen way behind. Even if he somehow manages to recover at some point, he's highly unlikely to make a year-one impact. The good news for the Chargers is they're well-stocked at receiver with Keenan Allen coming back from a torn ACL, Tyrell Williams coming off a breakout 2016, Dontrelle Inman proving capable as a No. 3, and Travis Benjamin as a deep threat. Williams allegedly may have "masked" the injury in the pre-draft process.

Coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that Cam Newton (shoulder) is throwing to teammates in summer workouts in Baltimore.

"Apparently his shoulder is fine," said Rivera. Newton did some light throwing at last month's minicamp, but it sounds like he's ramped it up in the month-plus of off time between then and next week's training camp, where he should come back at or near 100 percent. Newton is much farther along in his rehab than Andrew Luck.

Free agent TE Gary Barnidge will visit the Jaguars next Tuesday.

Barnidge will also work out for the team that day. The 31-year-old's market has been relatively quiet after he was released by the Browns on draft weekend. He quickly worked out for the Bills but took a pause on visits. The Jaguars' tight end room could use an upgrade, as blocker Marcedes Lewis is currently atop the chart.

Panthers hired Marty Hurney as interim general manager.

As expected. Hurney, who was the overseer of the Panthers from 2002-2012, ran the organization into the ground before being fired in 2012 and succeeded by Dave Gettleman. Now the reverse happens five years later, and Hurney will guide the team through the 2017 season before a permanent GM is hired next offseason. Veterans like Greg Olsen and Thomas Davis are licking their chops as they're sure to get the extensions they've been seeking. Hurney made a habit of handing out bad contracts when he was last at the helm. Luckily for Carolina fans, Hurney isn't expected to be the GM for next year's draft.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says he was "surprised" by the firing of GM Dave Gettleman.

Rivera, though careful not to seem to disagree with owner Jerry Richardson, said he had a good relationship with Gettleman. "No matter how tense things got, we always talked our way through it," Rivera claimed. Rivera added he does not believe his own job is in danger. Rivera is currently signed through 2018.

Contract-year WLB Thomas Davis doesn't believe he contributed to ex-GM David Gettleman's firing.

Davis says the sides were having talks, and they were "going well." There's been a perception that vets seeking extensions like Davis and Greg Olsen were the driving force behind Gettleman's firing, something Michael Oher obliquely referenced in a Tuesday social media post. Davis insists that isn't the case. "I think that's an unfair statement," Davis said. Regardless of his role in Gettleman's ouster, Davis' odds of landing his desired extension have greatly increased.

Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones declined comment on reports that Ezekiel Elliott is facing suspension.

Jones said he "didn't want to speculate." Commenting on the piling up of off-the-field issues for his young star runner, Jones said Elliott is "evolving and being subject to needing to learn how to deal with the media and social media the way it is today." Online buzz is growing that Elliott could be facing a lengthy ban, but it's still just conjecture. The only option for early drafters is to sit tight.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Steelers offered Le'Veon Bell "over" $12 million per year.

Pelissero adds the deal included $30 million in the first two years, which is more than Bell will make if he is tagged again next spring, and $42 million over three. If the details are accurate, the proposed deal would have blown the roof off the running back market, suggesting there was an issue with guarantees or perhaps a suspension provision. Bell has yet to sign his franchise tender and may wait well into training camp to do so, but there is little doubt he will at some point.
