Browns signed OG John Greco to a new five-year contract.

Acquired from the Rams for a seventh-round pick prior to the 2011 season, Greco has developed into a mauling run-blocking guard. He's now locked up through the 2017 season, and the new deal likely solidifies his spot as a starter at one of the guard spots. Jason Pinkston and Shawn Lauvao will compete on the other side. Greco had one year left on his deal at $800,000.

The Seahawks will sign MLB Bobby Wagner to a long-term contract.

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.

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.

Cowboys OC Scott Linehan said the team's run-heavy strategy is "not going to change" despite the departure of DeMarco Murray.

Dallas successfully used a high-volume rushing attack to hide its deficiencies on defense and Tony Romo's ailing back last season. Romo is as healthy as he's been in several years, but the defense is still suspect and the Cowboys have one of the best lines in the league. The issue for Linehan is at running back, where he is saddled with unproven talent Joseph Randle and washed-up veteran Darren McFadden. If Randle can prove his flashes last season are sustainable, he could allow the Cowboys to continue their ground-and-pound success and turn into a fantasy monster in the process. If he cannot handle the workload, however, Dallas may have to find a new offensive identity on the fly.
Aug 1 - 6:16 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms the Cowboys' No. 1 running back job is "Joseph Randle's to lose."

Per RapSheet, the Cowboys expect "big things" from Randle, and love his "vision and explosiveness." After struggling mightily as a fifth-round rookie in 2013, Randle indeed showed improved burst as a sophomore, averaging nearly seven yards on 51 carries. Randle remains a high-risk fantasy investment based on his extremely-limited track record. His ADP is creeping toward round three.
