49ers rookie WR Quinton Patton caught two passes for 52 yards and a touchdown in the preseason finale.

Patton started opposite Marlon Moore with Anquan Boldin getting a veteran's night off. The fourth-rounder took his first target on the opening drive to the house for a 43-yard touchdown on a receiver screen to the right. Patton made several Chargers defenders look silly in the process. Moore has started every preseason game at X receiver, but expect Patton to overtake him sooner rather than later. Patton will open the season as the No. 3 receiver. He can play both in the slot and on the outside. Patton's stock is on the rise after finishing the preseason with six catches for 87 yards (14.5 YPR) and two touchdowns.

ESPN Tallahassee radio host Jeff Cameron reports Jameis Winston is "prepared for the NFL to levy a suspension" in its investigation of his March 2016 incident with an Uber driver.

Cameron's comments are via JoeBucsFan.com. Per Cameron, the "thought from the Winston camp" is that his suspension will be no longer than three games, and likely just one. Winston is alleged to have groped an Uber driver, but he was never charged with a crime. Regardless of what the law decides, the NFL has been taking matters into its own hands since the Ray Rice debacle. Ezekiel Elliott was never charged with a crime before his six-game ban. Clarity should come soon, but the NFL has a way of dragging these situations out.

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows believes 2016 first-round OG Josh Garnett is the "most prominent player in danger of being cut" by the 49ers.

He was the 28th overall pick in the 2016 draft and sat out all of last year following a knee scope and conditioning issues. The new regime doesn't seem to be a huge fan of Garnett, who was ex-coach Chip Kelly's final first-round selection in San Fran. Garnett is competing with veteran Mike Person and fellow former first-round bust Jonathan Cooper for spots on the Niners' offensive line.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak believes 2016 first-round DE Shaq Lawson is "competing for a rotational role, if not for his 53-man roster spot entirely" this summer.

Rodak thinks the team could try and trade Lawson ahead of Week 1, especially once free agent pickup Trent Murphy (knee) is back to 100 percent opposite Jerry Hughes. Buffalo also has Eddie Yarbrough, Terrence Fede, and Owa Odighizuwa as rotational pieces. Lawson, the No. 19 overall pick by ex-coach Rex Ryan, has just six sacks across 21 career appearances.

Cowboys reporter Marcus Mosher reports Allen Hurns was the team's "clear-cut" No. 1 receiver throughout spring practices.

As expected. Hurns inked a two-year, $12 million pact after his release from Jacksonville, and the Cowboys then released Dez Bryant while failing to re-sign Brice Butler. It leaves Hurns as the default top wideout, followed by Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams, and rookie Michael Gallup in whichever order. In an offense that figures to lean on Ezekiel Elliott as much as Elliott's body will allow, maybe only one of these receivers will provide steady fantasy value.

Cowboys reporter Marcus Mosher reports second-year UDFA Blake Jarwin worked as Dallas' No. 1 tight end during OTAs and minicamp.

According to Mosher, Rico Gathers "barely gets any snaps in practice." Gathers hasn't played a single snap since being drafted in 2016 but flashed big-time potential last preseason only for the Cowboys to ask him to bulk up and improve his blocking this year. It sounds like Jarwin is the preferred pass-catching option, with Gathers competing for snaps as an in-line blocker. Jarwin showed some Jacob Tamme-esque traits as a walk-on at Oklahoma State.

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans view fourth-round Keke Coutee as an "upgrade" on Braxton Miller in the slot.

"He's done everything we've asked him to do," WRs coach John Perry said. "If he continues to do that, I can see him moving forward." Coutee has 4.43 speed but checks in at just 5-foot-10, 180 pounds. If he doesn't establish himself in the slot, he should serve as a situational deep threat. Miller is eminently beatable in a competition, however.

Terrelle Pryor blames his down 2017 on his ankle injury.

Pryor, who made nine appearances for the Redskins before landing on injured reserve, said he tore his deltoid ligament in the Redskins' opener. The injury required surgery after his I.R. placement. "I couldn't focus on my game because I was worried about my foot," Pryor said. "It took control of my mind. Right now, I'm healthy and ready to get back to form and have a dominant year." Pryor actually isn't healthy as he deals with a foot issue, but he's optimistic he will be ready for camp. Pryor is a wild card in a receiver corps with targets for the taking.

45-year-old Colts K Adam Vinatieri says he has no plans to retire in the near future.

"I love it as much today as I had when I started 23 years ago," Vinatieri said. "I’m not looking to hang them up anytime soon. ... I guess I’ll take these one year at a time and see where it ends up." Headed into his 23rd year in the league, Vinatieri remained an 85.3 percent field goal kicker last season and is approaching several league records.

Ravens signed No. 25 overall pick TE Hayden Hurst to a four-year contract.

The deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2022. Hurst will be a 25-year-old rookie after spending two seasons in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ organization, then three in the SEC. Hurst tested as a 46th-percentile athlete with 4.67 speed before the draft. Hurst is raw and old for a prospect, but he offers a plus pass-catching skill set and willingness to block. Hurst should start right away, though the Ravens also selected a catch-first tight end in Mark Andrews at No. 86.

Browns signed OT Greg Robinson.

The former No. 2 overall pick made six starts with the Lions last season before an ankle injury sent him to injured reserve. Unsurprisingly, he was not great at either guard or tackle in Detroit, but it makes sense for Cleveland to see what Robinson can do. The Browns have a hole at left tackle, but it would be disappointing if Robinson won the job.

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield "did not look ready to compete" with Tyrod Taylor for the Browns' starting quarterback job at OTAs and minicamp.

The Boston Globe had a similar report on Sunday. The Plain Dealer doesn't detail where exactly Mayfield is so far behind, but Taylor is a three-year starter with a 22-20 record the past three seasons on poorly-assembled Bills teams. He should open training camp as the heavy favorite to start Week 1. Still, Taylor would be beating the odds to keep the job beyond Cleveland's Week 11 bye.
