Rams COO Kevin Demoff suggested the team won't necessarily have any one receiver catch 70-plus passes in 2013, but "four or five" players who "catch 40-50."

"The goal this year is for Sam (Bradford) to be able to throw to the "open" player," Demoff explained, "and I expect that we will get meaningful contributions from all five receivers, the two tight ends, and the running backs. ... That is where we are evolving, letting the down, distance, scheme, and coverage dictate who becomes the targeted player." It's a reminder that Tavon Austin is being overdrafted at his sixth-round ADP. The Rams will run a spread-the-wealth offense in 2013.

Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that Tom Brady and the NFL were still discussing a settlement as of Tuesday morning.

It remains highly unlikely the two sides will reach an agreement before Patriots training camp opens Thursday. Stephen A. Smith is "hearing" the four-game ban will be upheld within the next 24-48 hours, which is the no-brainer outcome given Roger Goodell's stance on the matter. Of course, none of this matters too much as Brady is widely expected to challenge the NFL in court. He will "seek an injunction that will allow him to play while his case works its way through the courts," per ESPN.

Cowboys released RB Ryan Williams.

The oft-injured Williams couldn't stay out of the training room again, undergoing a knee procedure after he experienced swelling in June. The Cowboys added Stephen F. Austin UDFA Gus Johnson to take his place on the 90-man roster. Unless Chris Johnson or another veteran comes aboard, it looks like the Cowboys will roll with Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar as their top-three running backs.

The NFL and Le'Veon Bell are negotiating a settlement that could reduce his three-game suspension to one or two games.

Bell's suspension stems from an August 2014 incident in which he was pulled over with marijuana in his car, and got charged with both possession and a DUI. Bell's camp is arguing that he's being punished twice for the same offense. As a player with no known history of breaking the law, he appears to have a legit shot at a reduction. Bell, already in the conversation at No. 1 overall in fantasy, would surely be the top pick if he only will sit 1-2 games.

Terrance West appeared to surrender reps to Duke Johnson and Shaun Draughn during OTAs and minicamp.

The Browns have said they want to ride the hot hand at running back this season. It's going to be very difficult for West to get that hot hand if he's fourth in line behind Isaiah Crowell, Johnson and Draughn. West had a rocky rookie year, often looking average on the field and getting in the coaches' doghouse off it. The Browns used a third-round pick on Johnson in May.

The Cardinals have brought in Dr. Jen Welter as a training camp/preseason inside linebackers coaching intern.

Welter is the first ever female coach in the NFL. Just about four months after the NFL hired its first woman official in Sarah Thomas, coach Bruce Arians is giving Welter a chance to impress as a coach. Welter is a Doctor of Sports Psychology and had been working as a coach for the Texas Revolution of the Indoor Football League. Arians openly supported woman coaches at the owners meetings.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Monday that Cordarrelle Patterson's consistency has remained an issue on the practice field.

"He'll have really good days, and then he'll have some not-so-good days," Zimmer said. "Really, I think what he needs to do is just the consistency every single day and the consistency in studying, the consistency in getting extra help that he needs if he needs it, running the routes the same all the time." Behind Charles Johnson, Mike Wallace, and Jarius Wright on the depth chart, Patterson is unlikely to contribute in fantasy this year. Added Zimmer, "To me, the biggest thing with him is that: Does he want to be 'Flash' or does he want to be a great receiver? I'm not trying to dog him or anything, but that's really what it is."

Asked Monday about Adrian Peterson's workload, coach Mike Zimmer replied "He'll get as much as he can take."

"Adrian's going to get the heavy workload," said Zimmer, a defensive-minded coach. "As much as he can take, and as much as he can handle in all the things that we're doing. Obviously, we're going to have to spell him at times like you do a lot of guys. But we get down on the goal line, and we're probably not pulling him out, you know? He's our best player, and we're going to continue to use him." Peterson's age (30) and lost 2014 season may be concerns for his 2015 outlook. His projected workload in an ascending offense is a major plus.

Suspended RB Le'Veon Bell was a full participant for the start of Steelers camp on Monday.

Bell missed last January's playoff loss to Baltimore with a hyperextended knee, and recently said he wasn't 100-percent healthy. Per beat writer Jeremy Fowler, however, Le'Veon looked "noticeably explosive" on the first day of camp. Fowler added that Le'Veon "says he's in the best shape of his life, and he's not lying," showing quick feet and straight-line speed in practice.

NFL.com's Rand Getlin reports free agent Chris Johnson's player rep has been "in contact with" Dallas.

Getlin says Johnson is "feeling explosive," and "ready to get back on the field." The report comes 10 days after CBS' Jason La Canfora said he "wouldn't be shocked" if CJ?K landed in Dallas. Johnson is well past his prime, but wouldn't be a bad flier for the RB-deficient Cowboys to take. Johnson arguably has (much) more left in the tank than Darren McFadden.

Speaking Monday, Browns coach Mike Pettine declined to guarantee that Josh McCown will be the team's starter.

"I'm not guaranteeing Josh will start against the Jets (in Week 1)," Pettine said. The comments came in the same breath that Pettine called Johnny Manziel the Browns' "clearcut" backup, but hint at a competition nonetheless. We don't doubt the Browns badly want McCown to be their starter, but they've seen the same 2014 tape everyone else has. It's quite possible McCown is done, and simply won't beat out Manziel.

Panthers OT Jonathan Martin is retiring.

He's just 25. Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Martin needs back surgery, and he's opted to walk away instead of going under the knife. It further thins Carolina's alarmingly-weak tackle corps, but Martin was far from assured of a roster spot. The No. 42 overall pick of the 2012 draft by the Dolphins, Martin struggled mightily whenever he was on an NFL field.
