CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora passes along "buzz among GMs" that free agent Jake Long is likely to re-sign with the Dolphins.

Perhaps Long was using the Rams as a leverage ploy all along, though La Canfora concedes St. Louis is "still in the hunt." SI's Peter King predicted that we'll have an answer on Long's 2013 whereabouts by tonight or early Monday. Once Long picks a destination, look for Andre Smith and Sebastian Vollmer to sign deals shortly thereafter. All three tackles are repped by the same agency (CAA).

Patriots placed WR Aaron Dobson (foot) on the active/PUP list.

Joining him there will be CB Alfonzo Dennard, WR Jeremy Gallon, DT Tommy Kelly and WR Matt Slater. Dobson had been optimistic he'd be good to go for the start of camp, but isn't ready after sitting out the entire offseason program. This being the Pats, there's little hard info on Dobson's recovery, but we doubt his stay on the PUP list will be a long one. Dobson can be activated at any time.

Bengals placed DT Geno Atkins (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Joining him there will be OG Clint Boling (knee), LB Marquis Flowers (hamstring), CB Leon Hall (Achilles), P Kevin Huber (neck), WR Colin Lockett (hamstring), DT Zach Minter (back), DT Devon Still (back) and WR Ryan Whalen (hamstring). Updates on Atkins' status have been scarce, but he's now roughly nine months removed from blowing out his knee. He could end up missing the entire preseason, but should still be considered better than 50-50 to be ready for Week 1. His status will be updated in the coming weeks.

The Toronto Argonauts have signed former Bucs QB Brett Smith.

A draftnik favorite, dual-threat Smith lasted only 11 days with Tampa Bay after making 35 career starts at Wyoming, where he compiled a 17-18 record, 76:28 TD-to-INT ratio, and 20 rushing touchdowns. Only 22 years old, Smith could eventually resurface in the NFL if he gets stronger during his time in Canada.

David Wilson (neck) tweeted Monday that he's been "cleared for everything."

It's fantastic news for Wilson, whose career appeared to be in jeopardy following a Week 5 neck injury and subsequent surgery. Now he can focus on football again, an area he struggled badly with last season while getting blown up in pass protection, averaging 3.31 YPC and losing two fumbles. Still, there's more than enough natural running ability here for the Giants to unleash Wilson as an explosive early-down change of pace behind Rashad Jennings. Don't be surprised if Wilson ends up earning at least 6-8 carries as soon as Week 1.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports Giants RG Chris Snee will announce his retirement from the NFL on Monday.

Hat tip to Giants blog Big Blue Interactive for having this before anyone else. Initial reports indicated Snee would meet with team brass to discuss retirement, but Graziano reports Snee "has indeed decided to retire" at age 32. The four-time Pro Bowler's loss is a big one for Big Blue, as Brandon Mosley (59 career snaps) is now ticketed for right guard duties, with Will Beatty, Geoff Schwartz, J.D. Walton, and Justin Pugh at the other four spots. O-Line injuries torpedoed the Giants' running game last season. While we're trying to stay optimistic that won't happen again this year, things have certainly not gotten off on the right foot.

Bills coach Doug Marrone revealed Sunday that DT Marcell Dareus opened camp on active/PUP because he couldn't pass the team's conditioning tests.

The Bills were the first team to open training camp when they took the field Sunday evening. Dareus went on active/PUP on Saturday. It should only be a day-to-day situation, but is another red flag following Dareus' two offseason arrests, one for drag racing and another for possession of synthetic marijuana. He's also regularly late to team meetings. Although Dareus is a Pro Bowl-caliber player, the Bills have to be growing wary of signing him to a high-dollar long-term extension. They do have Dareus under control for the next two seasons.

Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch made it clear he envisions Jordan Todman as a "change of pace" back.

Toby Gerhart detractors have suggested Todman might pose a threat to Gerhart's workload or even his starting job, but Fisch doesn't seem to agree. "Those two guys are truly change-of-pace backs," Fisch said of Todman and Denard Robinson, who are vying for the pace-change role behind Gerhart. Fisch did praise Todman's "burst, speed and acceleration." Gerhart lacks a clear handcuff with Todman, Robinson, and Storm Johnson all competing for backup duties.

CBS 4 in Miami reports Rams SLB Jo-Lonn Dunbar was arrested outside of a South Beach club early Sunday on battery and disorderly conduct charges.

Dunbar was allegedly hanging with ex-Sacramento Kings guard Donte Green when a "physical altercation" broke out. No further details are available. Dunbar was suspended four games in 2013 for violating the NFL's PED policy, but has otherwise not had run-ins with the law as a pro. The Rams re-signed Dunbar to a two-year, $3.5 million deal in March. He's their starting Sam 'backer.

Rob Gronkowski (ACL/MCL) said Friday night that he anticipates playing a full season in 2014.

"I'm planning on playing the whole season this year," said Gronk at his women's football clinic. Gronkowski played all 16 games his first two NFL seasons, but has missed 14 over the past two years. Gronk is expected to open camp on the active/PUP list as he's eased into football activities. If Gronk indeed makes it 16 games, he'll push Jimmy Graham to be fantasy's No. 1 tight end.

According to the Nashville Tennessean, the Titans "plan on using a running back by committee approach" this season.

Beat writer Jim Wyatt's "thinking" is Bishop Sankey will lead the team in "carries and production," but Dexter McCluster will be ex-Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt's new Danny Woodhead, and the Titans "want (Shonn) Greene to be their power back in goal-line and short-yardage situations." Wyatt also noted McCluster was an "offseason star" during OTAs. Most NFL executives viewed Sankey as a rotational back as opposed to a feature runner prior to May's draft. The Titans made him the first running back selected, but he's hardly a lock to handle bellcow work. Sankey's current Average Draft Position is the early fourth round, ahead of Ryan Mathews, Rashad Jennings, Shane Vereen, and Frank Gore.

Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch confirmed Toby Gerhart will be the "workhorse" and play all three downs.

"Toby has the ability to do it all," Fisch said. "He can catch it well. He can pass protect well, and he’s going to be in the game a lot — third down, base downs, short-yardage, passing downs." Fisch also admits both Denard Robinson and Jordan Todman are merely "change-of-pace backs," and will only see action to give Gerhart an occasional breather. Former Rotoworld all-star Chris Wesseling thinks Gerhart could lead the league in carries and run for 1,200-1,300 yards. The obvious concern for Gerhart owners is touchdown potential.
