Bills coach Doug Marrone said the signing of undrafted rookie WR Da'Rick Rogers is a "one-shot deal."

"Either you've learned your lesson and you've grown up and you're going to go forward and mature, or you haven't learned your lesson and you're going to be out on the street," Marrone said. "It's that simple. It's all on you, and you have to make the right decisions." The slightest slip-up and Rogers is going to get his walking papers. If he keeps his head on straight, Rogers has a legitimate shot to carve out a prominent offensive role as a rookie.

Terrelle Pryor was sprinkled in with the first-team offense at Browns camp on Sunday.

It's a good sign. Whereas many players in Pryor's position-conversion circumstance might linger with the third-team offense, Pryor is already making a push for meaningful practice reps. Pryor has drawn rave reviews at wide receiver early on, with both Dwayne Bowe and Joe Haden noting how "easy" Pryor has made the position switch look. Pryor is worth stashing in deeper Dynasty leagues. The Browns' shortage of wide receiver talent could result in substantial playing time for Pryor out wide in 2015. At 6-foot-5, 232, Pryor would make for an inviting red-zone presence. He's also as tough as nails.

According to the Charlotte Observer, Panthers WR Stephen Hill is believed to have torn his right ACL in Saturday's training camp practice.

The Panthers signed new WR Paul Browning on Sunday morning, indicating a need for depth at wide receiver and also requiring the team to clear a roster spot. Hill figures to be waived/injured soon. The 43rd pick in the 2012 draft, Hill has been an injury-plagued bust but was having a nice offseason in Carolina.

Seahawks signed MLB Bobby Wagner to a four-year, $43 million extension through 2019.

With so much money now committed to players at the top of their roster, GM John Schneider is going to have to stay hot in upcoming drafts. Wagner was entering a contract year, and might have been a franchise-tag candidate in 2016. The 25-year-old is a three-down Mike 'backer with 100-plus tackles in three straight seasons. Despite missing five games in which he was unable to compile plus grades, Wagner earned a top-five rating from Pro Football Focus among inside linebackers. He also has nine career sacks and five interceptions.

Second-year RB Juwan Thompson is reportedly challenging for the Broncos' No. 2 running back job.

Thompson averaged 5.0 yards on 54 carries as an undrafted rookie out of Duke last season, scoring three touchdowns. He's reportedly putting heat on Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman behind C.J. Anderson. "Forty (Thompson's number) looked unbelievable today," coach Gary Kubiak said after Saturday's practice. "He's built for what we do." It's time to add Thompson in all Dynasty leagues and put him on the re-draft sleeper radar.

Saints second-year WR Brandon Coleman has "consistently looked good" early in camp, and is reportedly "separating himself from the pack."

The "pack" consists of Seantavius Jones, Josh Morgan, Joe Morgan, and others. A mammoth target at 6-foot-6, 225, Coleman has been likened to Marques Colston by coach Sean Payton. Colston is being eased into training camp, so Coleman has handled some first-team reps. We'll be keeping an eye on Coleman and whether he's able to challenge Nick Toon for the No. 3 receiver job.

NFL.com's Lance Zierlein suggests the Texans' quarterback battle "might be over sooner than you think."

A Houston-area media member, Zierlein is convinced Brian Hoyer will be the Week 1 starter. Zierlein later cited Ryan Mallett's lack of accuracy as his likely downfall. Texans fans are oddly obsessed with Mallett getting the nod, but Mallett has been outplayed by Hoyer since the early spring, and was traded away by Bill Belichick for a conditional seventh-round pick last year. We still anticipate both sub-par quarterbacks making 2015 starts.

Steelers acquired CB Brandon Boykin from the Eagles in exchange for a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2016 draft.

The pick can elevate to a fourth-rounder based on Boykin's 2015 playing time. One of the top slot corners in the league, Boykin is an immediate upgrade to a Pittsburgh secondary that ranked 27th against the pass last year. Boykin was undervalued by Chip Kelly for his lack of size, but still graded as a top-25 corner by PFF last season. He's essentially a one-year rental for the Steelers. Boykin is owed $1.542 million in the final year of his contract. He turned 25 early last month.

Martavis Bryant will undergo a minor procedure for an elbow infection, and is expected to miss 7-10 days of training camp.

Although this clearly isn't a long-term worry, it is something of a concern for Bryant's re-draft fantasy outlook. He's trying to hold off Markus Wheaton to start in two-receiver sets after playing less than a third of Pittsburgh's offensive snaps as a rookie. Bryant is expected to be held out of the Steelers' preseason opener. We'll monitor Bryant's status closely until he returns.
Aug 1 - 6:57 PM

Jets rookie WR Devin Smith (ribs) is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

He'll miss all of training camp and the preseason. Smith is dealing with a punctured lung in addition to broken ribs, putting his Week 1 status in serious question. He'll be behind Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, and Jeremy Kerley when he returns, making Smith an unlikely early-season contributor.
Aug 1 - 3:10 PM

The Union-Tribune San Diego's Kevin Acee says rookie RB Melvin Gordon is struggling with pass protection in Chargers camp.

Most rookies struggle in pass pro, but Gordon's issues are compounded by his lack of experience as a receiver. With Danny Woodhead on the roster, there is little reason for the Chargers to put Gordon in passing situations in which he is unlikely to succeed. Gordon will get all of the early-down work for San Diego, but he is unlikely to be heavily involved in the passing game this season.
Aug 1 - 1:10 PM

Sophomore RB James White is working with the first team as the third-down back in Patriots camp.

CSN New England's Tom Curran said it "seems" the Patriots are going to give White the first crack to earn the third-down job vacated by Shane Vereen. Even if White wins the competition, he will likely cede touches to Travaris Cadet, Dion Lewis or Brandon Bolden at times. It is unlikely any of the Patriots' passing-down options earn the almost 10 touches a game Vereen saw the last two seasons.
