Lions re-signed C Dominic Raiola to a one-year, $1.5 million contract.

Raiola took a major pay cut to stay in Detroit last year, but turned in an excellent season, starting all 16 games and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 2 center. Only Jason Kelce (Eagles) was rated higher. Raiola is 35 years old, but interior offensive linemen age better than most positions. Raiola was Rotoworld's No. 4 free agent center, behind younger Alex Mack, Brian De La Puente, and Evan Dietrich-Smith. This is good news for Detroit's 2014 offense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter does not believe the Redskins and franchise-tagged QB Kirk Cousins will reach a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline.

Schefter thinks it will be "too difficult" to find the right value. "I think there would be teams willing to pay him if he were on the open market today more than Washington feels like it needs to pay him," Schefter said. "I think a team like the Cleveland Browns would’ve given him $20 million a year, maybe more." Already set to earn $19.95 million guaranteed this season, there is little reason for Cousins to take less than $20 million per year on a new deal, and the Redskins might want to see another season before shelling out that kind of cash. These deals tend to get done on deadline day, but it is certainly possible Cousins plays out the season under the tag.

Bengals.com's Geoff Hobson believes Cincinnati could use more two-back sets with Tyler Eifert's (ankle) availability in question.

With Marvin Jones and Mohamad Sanu leaving in free agency and Eifert hurt, the Bengals are desperate for receiving weapons. Free-agent addition Brandon LaFell and second-rounder Tyler Boyd will be asked to fill some of that void, but a bigger role for Giovani Bernard in the passing game should be part of the answer as well. He and Jeremy Hill could find themselves on the field together often this season.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot believes the "odds are very, very high" Robert Griffin III opens the season as the Browns' starting quarterback.

Cabot added coach Hue Jackson is "all in" on Griffin and is "riding him hard" during practice. Despite what has reportedly been a lackluster spring for Griffin, it sounds like the coaching staff is still squarely in his corner. It would be surprising if he is not the starter Week 1.

Updating a previous item, Andrew Luck's new six-year, $140 million contract makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history.

Prior to Luck signing, Joe Flacco paced the market at $22.1 million per year. Luck blows that out of the water. With the salary cap rising each of the past couple years and continuing to swell, it made it easy for the Colts to get this done. T.Y. Hilton is also under contract for the next five years through 2020.

Ex-NFL QB Johnny Manziel said he's going "completely sober" starting this Friday, July 1.

"No booze, eating right and training like crazy." Those were apparently Manziel's words to TMZ Sports. JFF also said he's determined to make an NFL comeback and ready to get back to work. Only after two more days of binge drinking and partying. We'd be shocked if Manziel plays in 2016.

Seahawks signed WR Doug Baldwin to a four-year, $46 million extension through 2020.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports it includes $24.25 million guaranteed. It makes Baldwin one of the highest-paid second-tier receivers in the league, and is a nice middle ground after Baldwin exploded for an unrepeatable 14 touchdowns in 2015. Baldwin, who turns 28 in September, is now locked up through his age-32 campaign. Baldwin is the Seahawks' clear-cut No. 1 wideout, but could face a run for his money from Tyler Lockett as early as this season.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Cardinals would like to hammer out an extension with contract-year DB Tyrann Mathieu before training camp.

The talks are complicated not just by the fact that Mathieu is recovering from a torn ACL, but also that he wants to be paid like a corner. The Cardinals are probably more inclined to offer safety money even though the majority of Mathieu's 2015 snaps came in the slot. Week 1 might be a more realistic deadline for a deal.

Cordarrelle Patterson admits his work ethic lagged at times through the first three years of his career.

"Sometimes you can be here and you feel like you’ve got to be on the team," Patterson said. "You feel like, ‘Yeah, I’m a first-round pick, I’m on the team.’ Things like that, sometimes they make you not work hard, they make you don’t want to do things, make you be lazy." C-Patt's career has been in a downward spiral the past two seasons, with the former No. 29 overall pick drawing only two targets in 16 games last year. With Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright all in the mix in Minnesota, Patterson won't have much of a role beyond returning kicks.

Ex-Colts RB Zurlon Tipton was killed in an accidental shooting on Tuesday.

Horrifying. Tipton was only 26. According to FOX Detroit, Tipton was having his car serviced when he "went to take a duffel bag out of the trunk of his vehicle, and one of the two guns inside the bag reportedly went off." Tipton was shot in the stomach, later dying at the hospital. A 2014 UDFA, Tipton made 16 appearances for the Colts over the past two seasons, getting the ball 26 times. He was waived last December, shortly after which he was arrested for criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.

DallasCowboys.com's David Helman believes No. 4 overall pick Ezekiel Elliott "will finish with roughly 280-300 carries."

Adrian Peterson was the only back to crack 300 carries last season, and Doug Martin joined him as the only backs above 270. That said, this projection is not in any way crazy. The Cowboys are just a year removed from handing the ball to DeMarco Murray 392 times, and they spent a top-five pick on Elliott in part because they want to replicate the ground-and-pound approach which worked so well in 2014. Elliott has more competition in the backfield than Murray did, but he is still the clear No. 1 on what projects to be a run-heavy team. Topping 300 carries is certainly within the realm of possibilities.

Marcus Mariota told coach Mike Mularkey he would "hand the ball off 40 times" if that's what it took to win games.

"That's what's important to me, to giving us an opportunity to win," Mariota continued. "Having those two workhorses back there should help us out." The two workhorses Mariota references are DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, the likely focal points of Tennessee's #ExoticSmashmouth attack. There is literally no chance the Titans run the ball 40 times a game, but the scheme should limit Mariota's passing attempts and upside if the defense can hold up their end of the bargain. Luckily for Mariota, that is a big if.
