Packers signed No. 61 overall pick RB Eddie Lacy to a four-year contract.

Lacy, widely believed to be the top-overall running back in the run-up to the draft, fell to the Packers in the second round due to concerns over surgery to correct a toe injury. Although there are differing opinions on the status of his health and long-term outlook, the Packers were comfortable enough to draft him. GM Ted Thompson has already said the team views Lacy as an every-down back. He'll likely serve as the early-down thunder to Johnathan Franklin or DuJuan Harris' passing-down lightning as a rookie.

Browns head of football operations Sashi Brown indicated in a Monday statement that suspended WR Josh Gordon will be given another chance in Cleveland.

"With the league's decision to afford Josh the opportunity to resume his career, he will be with us for the start of training camp,'' Brown said. "At that time, we will discuss directly with Josh the direction of our team, our expectations of our players and a plan to support him on and off the field." Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported earlier this afternoon that Gordon remains on "thin ice" with the organization, but Brown's words suggest the formerly-troubled 25-year-old will stick with the team through training camp.

LeGarrette Blount (hip) avoided the Patriots' active/PUP list to begin camp.

It's a great sign after Blount missed all spring practices, then ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reported Blount's roster spot wasn't secure. If Blount is healthy and in good shape -- he is both of those things right now -- he will return as the heavy favorite to handle big-back carries in the Patriots' high-scoring offense. New England may lean on Blount more than usual during Tom Brady's four-game ban. The Pats play the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans, and Bills in that window.

Patriots placed RB Dion Lewis (ACL) and Julian Edelman (foot surgeries) on the active/PUP list.

This doesn't hint where either player is in their respective recoveries, though it is a small surprise Lewis hasn't been cleared for training camp. Lewis did participate at June minicamp, practicing without a brace on his surgically repaired knee. We suspect he'll be activated onto the 90-man roster within a few weeks, if not sooner. Edelman's recovery is going to be more complex.

Packers placed WR Jordy Nelson (ACL) on the active/PUP list.

Jared Cook (foot surgery) and Ty Montgomery (ankle surgery) also showed up on the list. It means Nelson hasn't yet been cleared to practice, a mild surprise since all offseason reports regarding his recovery have been glowing. Nelson can still be activated at any time, and it's conceivable he only spends a few days on active/PUP. At age 31 coming off an ACL tear, Nelson's health will continue to be a situation to monitor throughout Packers training camp.

Redskins OLB Junior Galette has suffered another torn Achilles' tendon, and is done for the season.

Galette's second year as a Redskin will end the same as his first: With zero snaps. Per PFT, Galette tore his right Achilles'. It was Galette's left Achilles' that cost him all of 2015. Headed into what would have been his age-28 season, Galette's career is now in serious doubt. It's an on-paper blow for the Redskins' thin pass rush, but realistically DC Joe Barry should never have been counting heavily on Galette considering his off-field and injury histories.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson wants Carson Wentz to be "starter ready" by Week 1.

"You want (Wentz) to be in a position where if there’s an injury or somebody goes down, you plug him in and you don’t have any worries," coach Doug Pederson said. "You’re fully confident in his ability to take over. Because backup quarterbacks need to be ready to go in an instant." In theory, it's just coachspeak, but it's also an admission the Eagles believe Wentz could be "starter ready" by the opener. Sam Bradford needs to have the season of his life to hold off the No. 2 overall pick for 16 games.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon will be reinstated after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season.

It's somewhat shocking news. Gordon's career appeared to be on the brink at times this offseason, but he's kept his head down since an unfortunate spring. Gordon's reinstatement is conditional, but he will be allowed to participate in training camp. That's a perk few banned players get. It means Gordon should be in near peak shape when he returns in Week 5. It's important to remember that Gordon has played in just five NFL games over the past two years, but he's still only 25 years old. He's a mid-round pick who will be an immediate WR3 upon his return, and perhaps a WR1 by the time it's all said and done.

Suspended Raiders OLB Aldon Smith claims it's not him in the "fire up session" video posted on Periscope.

The man who says his name is Aldon Smith in the video certainly sounds like him, but there's no definitive visual evidence. If it ends up being proven to be Smith in the video, it would be a catastrophic blunder from a player currently serving a year-long suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Smith can apply for reinstatement in November.

Free agent Antonio Cromartie has no plans to retire, and insists his hip wasn't an issue in 2015.

"Hell, no," Cro told the New York Daily News. "I'm not done. My hip wasn't the problem last year." Cro's comments come a few hours after NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported he was considering hanging up his cleats over "lingering hip concerns." Hip or no hip, Cro is 32 and coming off multiple mediocre seasons. The league could be making his decision for him.

Retired 49ers RT Anthony Davis says he has officially applied for reinstatement.

Davis first started talking about returning in February, but delayed for months, conveniently missing the entire offseason program. It's unclear if the 49ers plan to welcome him back or relinquish his rights. Davis is still only 27 (in October), but his play was on a bit of a downward trajectory before injuries limited him to seven games in 2014. The Niners do have an opening at Davis' old right tackle position, however. He should be welcomed back if the team thinks he's serious about playing at a high level.

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 year 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.
