The Denver Post reports Von Miller's four-game suspension is for testing positive for amphetamines and marijuana during his rookie season in 2011.

NFL rules only allow commissioner Roger Goodell to suspend violators of the substance-abuse policy if they are two-time offenders. So the rookie-year violation was Miller's second of the sort. A third offense would cost him an entire season. Why the NFL took so long to suspend Miller is unclear, but it's believed he'll have a "hard" time winning his appeal. The Broncos need to prepare to be without Miller until Week 5. Their fantasy defense takes an obvious blow, as aging replacement Shaun Phillips is a sizable downgrade.

Browns GM Ray Farmer has been suspended four games without pay for illegal gameday texting.

After an investigation, the NFL has deemed that Farmer acted as a lone gunman when he attempted to text playcalls to the sidelines during 2014 games. So they haven't lost a draft pick, but have been fined $250,000 and will have to go at it without Farmrer for the first month of 2015. He won't even be allowed in the team facility, although that may be a good thing. In Farmer's first year as an NFL GM, he blew two first-round draft picks (Johnny Manziel, Justin Gilbert), chased talented OC Kyle Shanahan away and assembled bottom-barrel offensive talent.

Sources tell NFL Network's Ian Rapoport the Eagles will sign free agent WR Miles Austin this week.

It appears all Austin has to do is pass a physical when he arrives in Philly and the deal will be done. The former Cowboy enjoyed a bit of a bounce-back campaign with the Browns last year, posting a 47-568-3 line in 12 games. But it's an underwhelming signing as he turns 31 in June, had no market in free agency, is an annual injury risk and hasn't been a difference-maker since 2014. Expect Austin to slide in as cheap depth behind Jordan Matthews, blocker Riley Cooper and Josh Huff. This signing won't stop Chip Kelly from prioritizing the wideout position in the draft.

The NFL is expected to take a 2016 draft pick away from the Falcons for piping in crowd noise to the Georgia Dome during games.

The Falcons allegedly pumped in noise through the speakers when the opposing offense was huddling up. "I think what we've done in 2013 and 2014 was wrong," owner Arthur Blank said in February. "Anything that affects the competitive balance and fairness on the field, we're opposed to." It's not yet known what pick the Falcons will be stripped of. The NFL is also expected to suspend team president Rich McKay from the league's competition committee and fine the franchise heavily.

Packers agreed to terms with NT Letroy Guion on a one-year, $2.75 million contract.

27-year-old Guion was an 18-game starter for the Packers last season, posting career highs in tackles (62) and sacks (3.5) while holding up well against the run. He was arrested on Feb. 3 with 357 grams of marijuana, more than $190,000 in cash and a 9mm semi-automatic handgun in his truck, shutting down long-term extension talks. Guion somehow emerged with a mere fine and the Packers remained interested in a short-term deal despite the looming threat of league discipline.

Free agent WR Hakeem Nicks is visiting the 49ers.

It took nearly three weeks, but Nicks is finally getting a sniff on the free agent market. The 49ers, in search of inexpensive depth behind starters Anquan Boldin and Torrey Smith, will likely be disappointed in what they find. Lower-leg injuries have completely zapped Nicks' once-promising career, as his last three seasons have been nothing short of poor. No other team has even poked around at Nicks in the wake of his 38-405-4 "prove it" 2014 season with the Colts.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sam Bradford contemplated quitting football after his 2014 ACL tear.

Fellow former Oklahoma QB Josh Huepel reportedly had to talk Bradford out of it. This isn't exactly breaking news, as Bradford previously admitted to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he "didn't want to come back" following his latest injury. Still, the mere fact that Bradford contemplated retirement so recently sends up a red flag, particularly to teams interested in Bradford if the Eagles try to flip him in a draft-day trade up for Marcus Mariota. Since his college days, 27-year-old Bradford has undergone right shoulder surgery and two left ACL reconstructions.

Coach Gary Kubiak confirmed C.J. Anderson will open OTAs as the Broncos' starting tailback.

Kubiak said Anderson wasn't assured the job at the Combine, but sounded more committed to him at the NFL owners' meetings. "I think he's shown he has all the ability to be an excellent starter in this league, so we're really looking forward to working with him," Kubiak said. "We'll give them all a chance and see how it pans out, but C.J. obviously has a good head start on things. ... He's proven that running zone schemes and doing those types of things seem to fit him very well."

Free agent RB Stevan Ridley will visit with teams this week.

Coming off a torn ACL and MCL, Ridley is expected to be cleared in roughly six weeks. A reunion with New England seems unlikely given Ridley's similarities to LeGarrette Blount. The Cowboys showed interest in Ridley before they signed Darren McFadden. A light-footed power runner, Ridley is a bit one-dimensional but could help a team as an early-down chain mover if healthy.

Coach Ron Rivera said at the NFL owners' meetings that the Panthers would like to limit Jonathan Stewart to around 15 carries a game in 2015.

It makes sense based on Stewart's injury history. Rivera insisted Carolina wants to maintain a two-back system with Stewart handling 15 runs a game and the No. 2 runner handling 8-10. "Running back has definitely been proven that you’ve got to have a good two-back tandem," said Rivera. "And that’s what we’re looking for. We’re looking for that complement to Jonathan." The Panthers have been linked to Todd Gurley and Tevin Coleman during the pre-draft phrase.

Panthers claimed OT Jonathan Martin off waivers from the 49ers.

The 42nd overall pick in the 2012 draft, Martin's name has long been bigger than his game. He's struggled mightily in stints with the Dolphins and 49ers, and generated negative publicity for "outing" Richie Incognito as a "bully" during the 2013 BullyGate Scandal in Miami. The Panthers are searching at tackle, claiming Martin and signing Michael Oher to a cheap two-year deal. They'll continue to add talent in the draft.

Panthers signed WR Jarrett Boykin to a one-year contract.

Boykin, 25, lost the third receiver role to Davante Adams in Green Bay last season after posting a 49-681-3 receiving line in 2013. Boykin stands 6-foot-2, 217 with 4.74 speed, so he's essentially a younger version of Jerricho Cotchery at this point. Boykin is viable offseason depth, but Carolina needs to keep searching for a No. 2 wideout upgrade opposite Kelvin Benjamin.
