Sources tell Draft Insider Tony Pauline there's a "99.9 percent" chance Davone Bess is traded to the Browns for "mid-round picks."

If Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland could get "picks" for Bess, it'd be a huge victory. The 27-year-old doesn't have a role in Miami after the Brandon Gibson addition. In Cleveland, Bess would likely compete with David Nelson for slot duties. He has one year left on his contract. Per the Miami Herald, the Fins also called the Jets, 49ers, Cardinals, Vikings, and Rams to gauge their interest in Bess.

Coach Dennis Allen said both Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden will get touches this season.

Andre Williams continues to take the goal-line snaps at Giants camp.

Williams was originally spotted in first-team goal-line packages more than a week ago, and nothing has changed. It's a place the fourth-round rookie can contribute right away, as the 230-pound grinder has a ways to go in pass protection and as a receiver. Rashad Jennings has a potential vulture on his hands.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk.com there's a "slight chance" Josh Gordon could reach a settlement with the NFL where his one-year suspension is reduced.

Per PFT's Mike Florio, "Any deal presumably would entail a suspension for Gordon that lasts less than a year." This would be much better news for Gordon than the original notion of an "all or nothing" situation in Friday's appeal sitdown with hearing officer Harold Henderson, whereby either the one-year suspension would stand in full, or be erased. (The suspension isn't getting erased, by all accounts.) Florio reports "a ruling is expected fairly soon."

Profootballtalk reports Marshawn Lynch has agreed to a $1.5 million raise for 2014.

Lynch won his holdout, after all. His salary will increase from $5 million to $6 million, while he's getting a $500,000 "signing bonus." He's now up to $6.5 million guaranteed for 2014. In addition, the Seahawks will not collect Lynch's $495,000 in fines. The Seahawks freed up $1 million by guaranteeing Lynch's per-game roster bonuses. The signing bonus money is coming out of his 2015 salary. It's a nice increase, but also perhaps a nod to the fact that Lynch won't be back at his scheduled $5.5 million salary next year. The fact that Seattle was willing to give Beast Mode a $1.5 million raise to end a seven-day holdout is a fairly strong indication that his workload won't be scaled back much this season.

The Newark Star-Ledger expects the Giants to employ a running-back-by-committee approach this season, despite David Wilson's career-threatening neck injury.

The Giants' offseason certainly suggests they want to use more than one back. They signed Rashad Jennings, re-signed Peyton Hillis, drafted Andre Williams, and return sophomore Michael Cox. "I think we have some talented guys at that spot," coach Tom Coughlin said. "Rashad has done well. I think the young kid (Williams) has come along the more we have given him to do. Michael Cox has had his spots." Jennings' fantasy Average Draft Position currently sits at the end of round four. Frank Gore, deservedly, recently leapfrogged Jennings in ADP.

Reggie Wayne (ACL) has been "effortlessly snatching passes out of the air" at Colts training camp, and coach Chuck Pagano deemed his recovery "really incredible."

"I've done everything I've wanted to do," said Wayne, who is all systems go. "I've run every route." Three players in NFL history have topped 1,000 receiving yards after their 36th birthday, and Wayne appears on pace to become No. 4. (He turns 36 in November.) Beat writer reports on Wayne's practice play have been unfailingly positive. Whereas T.Y. Hilton's Average Draft Position is at the fifth-/sixth-round turn, Wayne is available in the seventh and eighth rounds of drafts.

Marshawn Lynch has officially reported to Seahawks camp.

The Seahawks didn't blink, and Beast Mode lost his resolve after only a week. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Seattle is expected to add "some financial concessions to (Lynch's) contract," but it's likely just the forgiveness of his massive fine. Lynch's holdout was so short that it shouldn't affect his Week 1 preparation. He remains a solid second-round pick in re-draft leagues.

Coach Mike Pettine said Johnny Manziel will start to get some reps with the first-string offense soon.

So far, Brian Hoyer has gotten all the first-team reps while Manziel has struggled to complete passes with the backups. That doesn't mean this competition is over, as we still have more than five weeks until Week 1. Hoyer is a journeyman lacking difference-making talent and is coming off an ACL tear. "I don't think one is ahead of the other," OC Kyle Shanahan said Thursday. "I hope one will make the decision easy on us."
Jul 31 - 12:09 PM

Harold Henderson will hear Josh Gordon's appeal on Friday.

It's not good news for Gordon. A source previously told the Cleveland Plain-Dealer that "you would have a better chance of convincing your teacher your dog ate your homework" than trying to get Henderson to buy a second-hand smoke defense. The Plain Dealer added Thursday that it's a "longshot" Gordon will get off the hook. Commissioner Roger Goodell will not be at the hearing, but is expected to meet with Gordon sometime in the next week.

A source tells NJ.com that David Wilson (neck) "needs a miracle" to return to the field.

Wilson sustained a burner during Tuesday's practice, just a few months after undergoing spinal fusion surgery. His NFL career is now in serious jeopardy. The Giants are not expecting Wilson to get good news when he meets with his surgeon on Monday, leaving them with Andre Williams, Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox behind starter Rashad Jennings.

Mike Wallace (hamstring) will not practice until at least next week.

Wallace said his hamstring was "tight" earlier this week and then sat out Wednesday's session. So he'll rest it for a few days, meaning he'll miss Saturday's intrasquad scrimmage. Wallace's tweak doesn't sound overly severe, but we hate when speed-reliant wideouts have soft-tissue problems in their legs. It's something to monitor once the prime bounce-back candidate does get back on the field.
