Tom Brady completed 19-of-39 passes for 185 yards and a touchdown in New England's 13-10 Week 2 win over the Jets.

Brady and the Pats didn't win so much as survive. Things started off easy as Brady capped New England's opening drive with a 39-yard touchdown to a wide-open Aaron Dobson, getting the Jets' entire defense to bite on a play fake. The sides were mired in stalemate thereafter, however, as Brady found himself with absolutely no one to throw to. With Dobson and Kenbrell Thompkins both playing mind-numbingly bad football, Brady was forced to target slot maven Julian Edelman an absurd 18 times (he caught 13 passes for 78 yards). Brady's lack of viable targets in the passing game without Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski cannot be overstated. If at least one isn't back for New England's Week 3 tilt with the Bucs, it will be hard to sell Brady as a QB1.

Falcons signed Roddy White to a four-year extension.

Josh Gordon will appeal his one-year suspension in a meeting with the NFL on Aug. 1.

Gordon's appeal doesn't have much teeth. Since the latest failed drug test that triggered this ban, a "passenger" in his car was cited for marijuana and he's been arrested in North Carolina on suspicion of DWI. It would be a shock if the 16-game suspension is reduced. The Browns are just hoping that they can get Gordon back on the field in 2015. He led the NFL in receiving yards last season and became the first player in league history with back-to-back 200-yard receiving games.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Cordarrelle Patterson will continue to return kickoffs despite his increased offensive role.

Patterson was the best kick returner in the NFL last season. "We want our best players to get their hands on the ball as much as possible," Zimmer said. "We’re not going to keep him from returning kicks because he is such a dangerous weapon there." Zimmer suggested the jury remains out on whether Patterson will become an equally dynamic wide receiver. "For him to take the next step," Zimmer said, "we’re going to have to see how he gets off a jam and the things that people will try to do to take him away."

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Terrance West (NFI) will practice on Friday.

This appears to be a true non-story. West says he passed his conditioning test. If he does indeed practice Friday with the other Cleveland first-year players, he'll miss zero meaningful time. The Browns' full-squad workouts don't begin until Saturday. West versus Ben Tate is one of the biggest competitions of summer.

Chiefs signed RB Jamaal Charles to a two-year, $18.1 million contract extension through 2017.

So much for that holdout. Charles is now the second-highest paid running back in the league behind Adrian Peterson and is locked up through his age-31 campaign. On his previous deal, Charles was scheduled to make $3.9 million in salary and bonuses this season. He'll now make $8.3 million in 2014. It's well deserved after Charles put the Chiefs' offense on his back and carried them to the playoffs in 2013. Charles is entering his age-28 season. He's a locked-in top-three fantasy back, along with Peterson and LeSean McCoy.

Giants GM Jerry Reese admitted the team is concerned about first-round rookie WR Odell Beckham's "tweaked" hamstring.

"He missed part of spring ball with a hamstring and he tweaked it yesterday. Obviously there is a concern," Reese said. Beckham first injured the hammy in the spring, and then re-tweaked it on his first route on the opening day of training camp Tuesday. Coach Tom Coughlin said after Wednesday's practice that he has no idea when Beckham will be back on the field. Rookie receivers tend to struggle in year one anyway, so any missed practice time for Beckham is a concern. Jerrell Jernigan ran with the starters in three-wide sets on Wednesday.

Sidney Rice has retired from the NFL after seven seasons.

Rice is just 27 years old, and theoretically should be in the prime of his career. But Rice has missed a total of 31 games in his seven seasons. He's reportedly retiring because of a history of concussions. Rice was knocked out a number of times in his playing career and also was trying to return from a torn ACL. What once looked like a promising career after an 83-catch, 1,312-yard, 8-touchdown 2009 season with the Vikings has ended in sad fashion. Rice caught a total of 243 passes for 3,592 yards and 30 scores. He went to one Pro Bowl.

Daniel Fells has been operating as the Giants' starting tight end through the first two days of training camp.

Fells is the most experienced tight end in camp, as he's made 30 starts in 71 career appearances. However, he was out of the league last season and will turn 31 in September. The Giants may just be giving him the nod early on due to his experience, but it's something worth monitoring. Adrien Robinson has been tabbed the favorite to start at tight end all offseason. He ballooned up close to 290 pounds and reported to camp at 276. Whoever ends up manning tight end -- our money is still on Robinson -- won't be a recommended fantasy option.

A source tells the Miami Herald that C Mike Pouncey (hip surgery) is now expected to be out until late October.

Pouncey's labrum repair was always expected to cost him the first 3-4 weeks of the season, but now it sounds like he won't be back until Week 8 or so. He's starting camp on the active/PUP list, which puts the reserve/PUP list in play for the regular season. It's a major concern for an already shaky offensive line, as Nate Garner will likely have to fill in at the pivot.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher labeled rookie Tre Mason as a "change-of-pace back" following May's draft.

Mason could earn complementary carries off the bench this season, but rumors of him threatening bellcow Zac Stacy's starting job are unfounded. "Tre is a change-of-pace back," said Fisher. "Good zone runner, obviously the numbers speak for themselves. He was a guy we just couldn't pass up at that point." Pre-draft reports claimed Mason would need wrist surgery, but the Rams disagreed. "He may have to do something after the season but it was not a concern of ours, nor was it a concern of the doctors," Fisher said of the wrist.

Tavon Austin acknowledged he struggled to learn the Rams' playbook as a rookie.

It's worth noting Austin scored a 7 on his 2013 Wonderlic test. "I didn't really know what was going on," he said. "Everything looked like Spanish and sounded like Spanish to me." Entering his second season, Austin now claims to have OC Brian Schottenheimer's system down pat. He's expected to be a sub-package weapon, playing limited snaps. Austin is a long shot for steady WR3 value.
