According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns have "identified" Jordan Cameron as their 2013 starting tight end.

It would be a bold endorsement for an inexperienced former basketball player with the draft left to go, but could have major 2013 fantasy implications because of Norv Turner and Rob Chudzinski's documented history of highly productive tight end play. Cabot expects Cameron to take a "big step this year" and "have plenty of production." We really liked what we saw from Cameron last preseason. We're still skeptical he'll be guaranteed the starting job.

NJ Advance Media's Dan Duggan believes Will Tye has the edge over Larry Donnell for the starting tight end job entering camp.

Donnell was disappointing last season even before a neck injury ended his season, and Tye showed superior playmaking ability after taking over the starting job. Both players should be involved, but Tye is shaping up as the much better fantasy bet. He is a good late-round flier.

MLive's Justin Rogers believes it is "unreasonable" to expect a lot more carries for Theo Riddick.

Riddick made his fantasy bones in the passing game last season, recording 80 receptions for 697 yards and three scores, but he was only given 43 touches in the running game. Even with significant questions at running back, it does not sound like the Lions will give him a ton more work on the ground this year. Riddick is still in the FLEX mix in PPR formats because of his involvement in the passing game.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "lingering hip concerns" could force free agent CB Antonio Cromartie to retire.

A former First Team All-Pro, the 32-year-old has had an exceptional career, but he looked to be out of gas with the Jets last season. These hip issues could help explain why. Cromartie has not received much interest since being released by New York in February.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports suspended DE Dion Jordan is owed a $1.69 million roster bonus on the fifth day of camp.

Jordan would need to get reinstated for this bonus to become an issue, but if he does the Dolphins will have a difficult decision. The former No. 3 overall pick has not been effective even when on the field, and it is not a given he will stay out of trouble even if he is reinstated. That big of a bonus would certainly ensure Jordan a spot on the final roster whether he earns it in camp or not, and some in the organization may be unwilling to make that commitment. This situation should come to a head within the next week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL has determined Peyton Manning did not use HGH or any other performance-enhancing drugs.

Manning was implicated along with several other players in an Al Jazeera America report from December. The NFL determined there was "no credible evidence" the allegations were true after seven months of investigation. This development should be great news for James Harrison, Julius Peppers, Clay Matthews, and the other players implicated in the report, who have all submitted written statements declaring their innocence to the league office. The NFL still wants to interview each player.

Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell confirmed there are "no imminent plans" to sign free agent DE Greg Hardy.

Jacksonville made waves by working out Hardy last week, but it appears they were just updating their emergency list. "It was an opportunity for us," Caldwell said. "Here was a guy who was a franchise defensive end that was on the street and we tried to find out the facts of where he’s at, the truth behind him and everything that surrounds him and just do our homework." It sounds like Hardy could be an option for the Jags down the road, but for now his wait goes on.

The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta reports the Jets have given free agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick "multiple offers."

A three-year, $24-million deal appears to be the main offer, but Mehta reports the Jets have "presented at least one other option." The details of the second offer are not known, but it is clear Fitzpatrick is not interested in either option. Fitzpatrick has said he will accept a one-year contract for the same $12 million he would earn in 2016 under the three-year offer, but the Jets have been unwilling to make that deal to this point. Even with camp opening this week, this saga does not appear close to an end.

Greg Jennings announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons.

Jennings made the announcement via a YouTube video linked below. Even though he played the final three years of his career in Minnesota and Miami, Jennings will forever be remembered as a Packer. He caught 425 passes for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns in his seven seasons with Green Bay, playing a key role in the Packers' Super-Bowl run in 2010. He is not Hall-Of-Fame bound, but he should earn some recognition from Green Bay down the road.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the NFL is investigating a Periscope video which allegedly shows Raiders suspended OLB Aldon Smith smoking an unidentified substance.

The video is titled "Fire up session" and shows a lit, hand-rolled cigarette. While Smith's face is not seen on the video in question, his voice is clearly heard, and the post comes from an account which featured Smith on camera several times. A woman astutely warns Smith he should not be posting the video, but Smith says it is fine because "they don't have my name." He then says his name at the end of the video. Already suspended until at least November, this situation is unlikely to earn Smith any more fans in the league office.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Bills walk-year CB Stephon Gilmore will report for training camp.

"I'm planning to go out to training camp," Gilmore said. "I know what I am. It'll happen eventually." What Gilmore "knows" is he is a top-flight corner, and he wants to be paid like one. The Bills have not been willing to meet that asking price to this point, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes Gilmore will play out the final year of his deal. Gilmore is likely looking for something similar to the five-year, $75-million deal Josh Norman landed this offseason. If he is allowed to hit free agency next spring, he will likely get it.

Sammy Watkins (foot) suggested he is nearing 100 percent.

"As far as sprinting and stuff I’m moving and doing that 100 percent," said Watkins. "Any explosiveness I’m doing that. I’m doing the cuts, but certain things are full speed and certain things aren’t." Watkins said he is still not comfortable with speed cuts, but it is pretty clear he will be ready to go full tilt fairly early in camp. The Bills will likely limit their star playmaker throughout the preseason to avoid any setbacks, but there is little doubt he will be ready Week 1.
