Vikings re-signed C/G Joe Berger.

It's likely a one-year deal for the backup interior lineman. The soon-to-be 32-year-old has made two starts the past two seasons but has appeared in all 32 games.

Browns sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that the team is "baffled as to why Josh Gordon ruling has taken so long."

Eagles tight ends coach Ted Williams said Zach Ertz is "one of the best route-runners I've ever seen."

Long-tabbed as one of the key pieces of the post-DeSean Jackson era in Philly, Ertz has done nothing to squash the hype in camp. Veteran reporter Paul Domowitch goes as far as to mention Ertz in the same breath as Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten and Rob Gronkowski. "Ertz has that kind of ability, that kind of upside," Domowitch says. Although in-line blocking stud Brent Celek remains the starter, the Eagles are going to feature a ton of "12" looks that get Ertz mismatches against linebackers. He'll be a featured player in the red-zone and remains one of our favorite middle-round TE1s.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette confirms the Steelers are not going to impose any suspensions on Le'Veon Bell or LeGarrette Blount.

Beat man Ed Bouchette has heard from fantasy players worried that Bell and/or Blount would be suspended by coach Mike Tomlin for Week 1. It's not going to happen because 1)The Steelers want to beat the Browns and 2)Team-imposed suspensions violate the league's collective bargaining agreement. Furthermore, any discipline from the NFL won't be handed down until after the case plays out in court -- something that can be held off until after the season. "If you have not yet held your fantasy football draft and want to take Le'Veon Bell, you can do so without fear it will cost you or him a game," writes Bouchette.

Frankie Hammond is expected to start in place of Dwayne Bowe (suspension) Week 1.

Hammond, a 2013 UDFA out of Florida that spent last season on the practice squad, has been Bowe's direct backup at "Z" throughout camp. He's also been solid in preseason games, catching six passes for 90 yards on 86 snaps. It's a nice story, but it speaks to the striking lack of depth and talent the Chiefs have in their wide receiver room. If they want to have any kind of passing attack against the Titans, they'll install Gronkonian tight end Travis Kelce as a primary receiving option. Donnie Avery remains the starting "X."

ESPN's Adam Schefter says Rob Gronkowski (knee) remains in a "good spot."

Newly acquired Tim Wright will compete for snaps as a "move" tight end complement to in-line Gronkowski. They play completely different positions, so the trade does not shed any new light on Gronk's rehab -- which reportedly continues to progress without setback. Within the last week, Schefter has stated that he would be surprised if Gronkowski isn't ready for Week 1.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin suggested Lamar Miller remains ahead Knowshon Moreno for the starting running back job.

"I like everything Lamar has done since he's gotten here," Philbin said. "He's had an excellent offseason and camp. I like everything he's done since April 21." Miller has been splitting first-team reps this week, but is expected to open the season as Miami's primary early-down back. Moreno is the favorite for third down and pass protection snaps.

Coach John Fox said Wes Welker is doing "fantastic" in the concussion protocol.

Oftentimes, players with a history of concussions have trouble progressing quickly through the league's protocols. That doesn't appear to be the case with Welker even though this is his third concussion in the last nine months. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says there's a "lot of optimism from the team," essentially confirming that Welker has no intention of retiring and is on track to make a speedy return. We still like Cody Latimer as a late-round stash -- he has more real-life upside than Andre Caldwell and Welker is a poor bet to make it through the season.

The Seahawks and coach Pete Carroll have been "collectively fined" $300,000 for violating the league's offseason non-contact practice rules

The team has also been docked two minicamp practices. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the Seahawks' June 16 OTAs session was "deemed unsuitable under CBA rules." It's hardly a federal offense, but won't help Carroll's reputation as a renegade rules bender.

Rams placed QB Sam Bradford on injured reserve with a torn left ACL, ending his season.

As NFL.com's Albert Breer points out, it means Bradford will have missed 41 of a possible 93 games since his Heisman Trophy-winning season at Oklahoma. In five NFL seasons, he's appeared in more than 10 games just twice. Bradford is due $12.985 million next season, but is highly unlikely to be back in St. Louis at that number. Still only 27 (in November), Bradford has time to turn his career around, but it's looking like a major missed opportunity.

Raiders waived or released WR Juron Criner, QB Trent Edwards, and OG Lucas Nix.

Criner was shining at spring practices, and was even called "far and away" the best receiver at OTAs. It didn't translate when the pads came on. Criner has good size at 6'3/220. But he's never been able to stay healthy. He ended up catching 2-of-4 targets for 22 yards this preseason. Edwards is a journeyman.

Patriots acquired TE Tim Wright and a 2015 fourth-round pick from the Bucs in exchange for LG Logan Mankins.

The Patriots had a bit of a logjam on their interior line, and needed help at "move" tight end. Wright is a natural fit to potentially fill the old Aaron Hernandez role. He's a former college receiver who caught 54 balls for 571 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie last season. This move puts Wright squarely on the fantasy TE2 radar. We don't believe it has anything to do with Rob Gronkowski's availability for Week 1, however, as Gronk and Wright play inherently different positions. Wright is a "flex" tight end, while Gronk plays the "in-line" role. The Pats will move RG Dan Connolly to left guard. Ryan Wendell is at center. Marcus Cannon is the right guard.
