Bears re-signed QB Josh McCown to a one-year contract.

McCown, 34 in July, has completed 58 percent of his 1,113 career passes with a 37:44 TD-to-INT ratio and 13-20 record. Chicago should remain in the market for a No. 2-caliber quarterback. McCown is best suited for a third-string role.

Raiders signed Derek Carr to a five-year, $125-million extension through 2022.

Ian Rapoport was first with the news, but Carr confirmed it himself on Twitter, saying he always wanted to be a "Raider 4 life." The $25-million average makes Carr the highest-paid player in NFL history, but the structure of the deal could be interesting with the Raiders moving to Nevada, which does not have a state income tax, and the current CBA set to expire during the course of the deal. Either way, Carr's future with the Raiders is now secure. With this deal wrapped up, Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins could be the next dominos to fall.

Steelers.com's Bob Labriola wrote he "cannot imagine a realistic scenario" in which franchise-tagged Le'Veon Bell holds out into the season.

Bell has yet to sign his franchise tender, but when he does he will be owed $12.1 million, almost $6 million more than any other running back will receive in base salary this year. Even if he does not get the long-term deal he wants before the July 17 deadline, Bell is unlikely to leave that kind of money on the table. While some contract certainty would be nice, Bell is still safe to select with one the top two picks in fantasy drafts.

Eric Ebron believes the Lions' offseason additions at tight end will allow him to "do the things that I’m best at."

The Lions added two block-first tight ends in the offseason, signing Darren Fells in free agency and selecting Michael Roberts in the fourth round. Those two should allow Ebron to play more of a receiving role, something he believes will be "significant." After seeing 85 targets in 13 games last year, Ebron has a real path to 100 this season, and Anquan Boldin's departure leaves 22 red-zone targets up for grabs. If healthy, Ebron could finally be ready for a breakout.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders and contract-year QB Derek Carr are finalizing a long-term contract extension.

Schefter reports the two sides are still working on the language, but the new deal could make Carr the league's highest-paid quarterback in terms of annual average. At $24.6 million per year, Andrew Luck currently holds that title, but Carr's deal is said to be close to $25 million per. Once he sets that bar, Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins will then be pushing to top that number.

Eric Decker's one-year contract with the Titans is worth $3.85 million.

Jeremy Maclin's two-year deal with the Ravens is worth $11 million. Decker gets a $1.35 million base salary and $2.5 million signing bonus. Another $1.5 million is available via incentives. It's quite the pay cut after Decker was scheduled to earn a $6.5 million salary from the Jets, but he'll likely trade the pay cut for a better chance to win in a city where he's always wanted to play. Decker is a serious candidate to lead the Titans in catches and receiving touchdowns.

Patriots signed ILB David Harris, formerly of the Jets, to a two-year, $5 million contract.

Naturally. The Jets released their 10-year veteran and longest-tenured player earlier this month only to see him join big brother. Now 33, Harris isn't the player he once was, but he remains a serviceable two-down thumper on the inside and could fill the old Brandon Spikes role for the Patriots. But New England does have a crowded linebackers group led by Dont'a Hightower. Harris may compete for playing time with Shea McClellin, Elandon Roberts, and Kyle Van Noy.

Appearing on Adam Schefter's Know Them From Adam podcast, Greg Olsen wouldn't rule out holding out of training camp in hopes of a new contract.

Olsen has two years left on his deal at base salaries of $6.5 million. In annual average, he makes less than Charles Clay. Olsen has proven he's one of the league's best tight ends and most reliable, having not missed a game since 2007. When asked directly by Schefter if he'd skip the start of camp, Olsen said it's "too early" to say. He turned 32 in March and said he thinks he can play another 5-6 seasons.

Appearing on Adam Schefter's Know Them From Adam podcast, Jeremy Maclin revealed he played through a torn groin in 2016.

Until now, the nature of Maclin's groin issue wasn't known. Maclin injured his groin two snaps into Week 9, missed the next four games, and was held under 30 yards in 3-of-5 games to end the year. Since his release from the Chiefs, some have said Maclin "lost a step," understandable considering he was playing with a groin tear. Maclin didn't need surgery and said he is now 100 percent.

NFL suspended Lions DT Khyri Thornton six games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

A run stopper, Thornton was dreadful against the run last season, but that didn't stop the Lions from giving him a two-year deal in free agency. Thornton was a restricted free agent. He'll be eligible to resume taking up space in Week 8.

ESPN's Dianna Marie Russini reports the Falcons are "confident" of striking an extension with contract-year RB Devonta Freeman by the first week of training camp.

Freeman expressed a similar sentiment last week. It's clearly a priority for both sides. One of the league's most versatile backs, Freeman has earned a big payday after back-to-back huge years.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports Browns second-round QB DeShone Kizer "has considerably narrowed the gap" to Cody Kessler.

Cabot adds the rookie will push "hard" for the starting job in camp, which is not surprising after Kizer saw first-team reps in minicamp. That said, QBs coach David Lee bluntly said Kizer is "not ready to play" last week, so he clearly still has work to do. Kessler is still the slight favorite to open Week 1 as the starter, but his spot atop the depth chart is precarious at best.
