Vikings agreed to terms with DT Linval Joseph, formerly of the Giants, on a five-year, $31.5 million contract.

Joseph, 25, started 46-of-48 games for the Giants the past three seasons and racked up nine sacks while averaging 55 tackles per year. He's equally strong against the run and as a pass rusher. With Kevin Williams, Fred Evans, and Letroy Guion all free agents, the Vikings were starving for a starter to plug in next to Sharrif Floyd. Joseph was considered a priority for the Giants.

ESPN New York believes Stephen Hill has yet to sew up a roster spot.

Hill has only one catch through 70 preseason snaps, and been "all over the map" in practice. Hill's theoretical upside is looking less and less likely to develop, though we'd ultimately expect him to keep his roster spot.

Derek Carr (ribs) will sit out Friday's preseason game against the Packers.

It's a major missed opportunity for the second-round signal caller, who could have put heat on struggling starter Matt Schaub with a strong performance in the Raiders' regular-season dress rehearsal. Schaub is now all but guaranteed to be under center come Week 1. Carr will probably still make starts sooner rather than later.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers plan to let the league "handle any disciplinary measures" following Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount's Wednesday arrest.

In other words, they won't be suspended any time soon. The NFL's wheels of justice move slowly. As previously reported, both players are suiting up for Thursday's preseason game. Coach Mike Tomlin believed it would be a "reward" to suspend players for an exhibition game. What a ringing endorsement for the preseason.

Cowboys LB DeVonte Holloman's career is likely over due to his latest neck injury.

Holloman, a sixth-round pick in 2013, suffered a spinal contusion in practice last season and missed seven games. He returned to start the final two games at middle linebacker and was in the mix to help fill Sean Lee's shoes this season, but now this embattled Cowboys defense takes another hit to its already brutal depth. Holloman hurt his neck during Saturday night's preseason game when a teammate made contact underneath his arm.

The Tennessean says the goal-line fade to Justin Hunter has been "all but unstoppable" at camp.

"When the Titans get anywhere near the goal line, quarterback Jake Locker simply lofts a soft spiral toward the corner of the end zone," says beat man John Glennon. At 6-foot-4 with excellent ball skills and a sparkling 39.5-inch vertical, Hunter is a no-brainer target over the diminutive Kendall Wright. On his 30 career NFL catches (between preseason and regular season), he has an incredible eight touchdowns. Hunter is shaping up as a prime breakout candidate this season, especially in TD-heavy formats.

Pierre Thomas expects his pass-game role to expand this season.

"I know my role is going to change a whole lot this year," he said. "I'm going to do more pass protection and route running." On paper, it makes sense as Darren Sproles and Lance Moore, who combined for 108 catches last year, are both gone. But Thomas already caught 77 balls last season, Khiry Robinson is underrated in the pass game and Brandin Cooks can do Sprolesian things. In reality, it's hard to see Thomas' box-score production making a significant leap, leaving him as a borderline RB2/3 in PPR formats. He'll turn 30 in December and averaged a career-low 6.7 yards per reception last year.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson says Trent Richardson "needs to answer the bell" and be "accountable."

Richardson gained eight yards on his first preseason carry, and has 26 yards on his last 13. "Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability," said Grigson. "We’re all accountable here. ... He’s such a hard runner, we know how tough he is, but he’s got to produce just like all these guys do on this final 53." If this was an outward expression of disappointment from Grigson, it'd be a first from the Colts' organization, which has propped up T-Rich at every opportunity since trading for him last September. Richardson's ADP has finally begun to dip. He's going late in the fifth round of standard drafts.

Andre Johnson is "showing no signs of rust" after missing a chunk of Texans camp with a hamstring injury.

Johnson reportedly showed up "all over the field" during Wednesday's Texans-Broncos joint practice and made one "incredible" catch in the back of the end zone. "He's a big part of what we're doing here," coach Bill O'Brien said. The No. 12 overall fantasy receiver a year ago, Johnson's ADP has dropped into the late fourth round. His QBs were Matt Schaub and Case Keenum in 2013.

Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were arrested for possession of marijuana Wednesday, while Bell was also booked for DUI.

Bell and Blount allegedly had 20 grams of pot and were accompanied by a female, who was in possession of two grams. All three were said to be "cooperative," and admitted to the crimes. While this obviously isn't good news, it may have no effect on Bell or Blount's status for the 2014 season. Bell had zero off-field concerns coming out of Michigan State. Blount has a shaky track record. Both will be in line for potential suspensions once the case is resolved.

CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports the 49ers are "not interested" in trading holdout RG Alex Boone.

Per Maiocco, interested teams have inquired about Boone. The 49ers are holding firm. Either they're willing to cave in to Boone's demands soon, or they're simply willing to continue to not pay Boone as he sits at home. Boone doesn't count against the 90-man roster and won't for as long as he holds out. San Francisco will continue to trot out Joe Looney at right guard in the meantime.

Bengals signed WLB Vontaze Burfict to a new four-year, $20 million contract through 2017.

Burfict was entering the final year of his three-year rookie deal, but was under team control through 2015. He gets a total of $7.6 million this season and is now one of the richest 4-3 outside 'backers in the league at $5 million annually. An undrafted gem out of Arizona State in 2012, Burfict has become a three-down difference maker for the Bengals. He's above-average, and near elite, both against the run and in coverage. Burfict is a shoo-in LB1 in IDP formats.
