The New York Daily News reports FS Will Hill is likely "done" with the Giants after failing another drug test.

Hill is facing a lengthy suspension, one that could cost him 6-8 games or an entire calendar year. It'll be Hill's third suspension in as many seasons, though he does plan to appeal. Whether he wins that appeal or not isn't expected to matter in terms of saving his job with the Giants. The team is reportedly "livid" at Hill's continued drug issues. He was PFF's No. 2 overall safety in 2013.

The NFL has reduced Le'Veon Bell's suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy from three games to two.

The league has upheld Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

After a summer of waffling, commissioner Roger Goodell has decided to hold firm on Brady's shockingly-severe punishment. It means the matter is now headed to federal court, where Brady will sue the league. Brady will reportedly "seek an injunction that will allow him to play while his case works its way through the courts." Buried in the league's statement was confirmation that Brady destroyed his cellphone, apparently on the same day he met with investigator Ted Wells. Reading the reports, "Deflategate" sometimes comes across as a matter of national security instead of the silly sports controversy that it is. As it stands right now, Jimmy Garoppolo will be starting against the Steelers, Bills, Jaguars and Cowboys.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the Cowboys have "no interest" in free agent Ray Rice.

The Cowboys have been speculatively connected to Rice and Chris Johnson, but ESPN's Todd Archer previously tweeted those links are being made by "everybody but the Cowboys." Per the Star-Telegram's Charean Williams, the Cowboys "haven't ruled out signing a vet back, but not for at least a couple weeks." They want to see how Joe Randle, Darren McFadden, and Lance Dunbar look early in camp.

Updating an earlier item, Rams RB Todd Gurley (ACL) will begin training camp on the active roster.

It means Gurley is ineligible for the reserve/NFI list, which would have cost him the first six games of the season. It's a major surprise after the Rams insisted all offseason they would take things slow with the No. 10 overall pick. It still doesn't guarantee Gurley will be ready for Week 1, but he's trending in that direction. Gurley's Week 1 status will be confirmed if he suits up for preseason action. Expect Gurley's ADP of RB20 to climb.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin says the team is open to giving Lamar Miller more carries in 2015.

Miller notoriously failed to hit 20 carries in any game last year, despite averaging an explosive 5.09 yards per tote in one of the NFL's most efficient rushing offenses. Miller did handle 19 carries in each of Miami's final two games, however, and Philbin left the door open for Miller to be treated more like a workhorse this year. "I would tell you I’ve never been in a meeting where I’ve said to [OC] Bill [Lazor] or [RBs coach] Jeff Nixon or the offensive line coaches (that) ‘Lamar can’t carry the ball 20 times a game. He can’t do it,’" Philbin insisted. "I’ve never heard that. That’s never come out of my mouth. ... I would tell you, if he’s cranking and he got it 24 times a game and he’s healthy and he’s fast and he’s explosive, it doesn’t bother me one bit." If Philbin stays true to his word, Miller will offer high-end RB1 upside after finishing 2014 as fantasy's No. 9 overall back.

Free agent LT Jake Long is working out for the Falcons Tuesday.

Long, recovering from his second ACL tear at 30 years old, has been on the street since the Rams cut him in March. The former No. 1 overall pick would be a low-risk addition for a Falcons team that desperately needs to protect Matt Ryan better. Left tackle Jake Matthews struggled badly as a rookie and potential right tackle Tyler Polumbus is not the answer. The Falcons are putting Long and his balky knees through a physical Tuesday.

Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that Tom Brady and the NFL were still discussing a settlement as of Tuesday morning.

It remains highly unlikely the two sides will reach an agreement before Patriots training camp opens Thursday. Stephen A. Smith is "hearing" the four-game ban will be upheld within the next 24-48 hours, which is the no-brainer outcome given Roger Goodell's stance on the matter. Of course, none of this matters too much as Brady is widely expected to challenge the NFL in court. He will "seek an injunction that will allow him to play while his case works its way through the courts," per ESPN.

Cowboys released RB Ryan Williams.

The oft-injured Williams couldn't stay out of the training room again, undergoing a knee procedure after he experienced swelling in June. The Cowboys added Stephen F. Austin UDFA Gus Johnson to take his place on the 90-man roster. Unless Chris Johnson or another veteran comes aboard, it looks like the Cowboys will roll with Joseph Randle, Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar as their top-three running backs.

The NFL and Le'Veon Bell are negotiating a settlement that could reduce his three-game suspension to one or two games.

Bell's suspension stems from an August 2014 incident in which he was pulled over with marijuana in his car, and got charged with both possession and a DUI. Bell's camp is arguing that he's being punished twice for the same offense. As a player with no known history of breaking the law, he appears to have a legit shot at a reduction. Bell, already in the conversation at No. 1 overall in fantasy, would surely be the top pick if he only will sit 1-2 games.

Terrance West appeared to surrender reps to Duke Johnson and Shaun Draughn during OTAs and minicamp.

The Browns have said they want to ride the hot hand at running back this season. It's going to be very difficult for West to get that hot hand if he's fourth in line behind Isaiah Crowell, Johnson and Draughn. West had a rocky rookie year, often looking average on the field and getting in the coaches' doghouse off it. The Browns used a third-round pick on Johnson in May.

The Cardinals have brought in Dr. Jen Welter as a training camp/preseason inside linebackers coaching intern.

Welter is the first ever female coach in the NFL. Just about four months after the NFL hired its first woman official in Sarah Thomas, coach Bruce Arians is giving Welter a chance to impress as a coach. Welter is a Doctor of Sports Psychology and had been working as a coach for the Texas Revolution of the Indoor Football League. Arians openly supported woman coaches at the owners meetings.
