Broncos signed fifth-round LB Lamin Barrow to a four-year contract.

Barrow was a weak-side linebacker at LSU and projects as one at the NFL level. He'll contribute on special teams early in his career but could develop into a starter long-term. Barrow will be WLB Danny Trevathan's top backup.

Lions released RB Stevan Ridley.

The writing was on the wall after Ridley played behind Zach Zenner, George Winn, and rookie Dwayne Washington this preseason. By releasing him now, the Lions have at least given Ridley a shot to latch on somewhere else -- and perhaps offset some of the $250,000 guaranteed they owe him -- but he has not proven to be an effective back since shredding his knee in 2014. The 27-year-old could be nearing the end. With Ridley gone, Zenner is now locked in as the big-back complement to Ameer Abdullah.

The Lions offense has utilized a no-huddle look on 62 percent of their plays during the preseason.

Detroit used the no-huddle on just 7% of their plays last season, finishing 30th in situation-neutral pace according to Football Outsiders. Both numbers should be significantly higher this year, and that is something Matthew Stafford is happy to see. "The faster you can push the tempo, when you want to, really, it just makes it more stressful on the defense," Stafford said. "If you feel like you're playing at a normal speed, and they think you're playing really fast, it feels a whole lot better for us." Stafford shined with OC Jim Bob Cooter calling the shots late last season, and the coordinator is molding his system to Stafford's strengths again this year. Currently the 16th quarterback off the board, it is possible Stafford is being undervalued.

Walk-year QB Drew Brees again said he will not negotiate a contract extension after the start of the regular season.

"That’s always been my mindset and my approach," Brees said. "I hope that we can get something done between now and then, I’m confident that we can but you know at this point still just very much focused on getting us ready to play for Week 1." If something is going to happen, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio was told it will most likely happen next week. Brees is set to earn $20 million in the final year of his deal.

Trevor Siemian said he thinks the Broncos' quarterback competition is ongoing.

"I’m not reading too much into it, to be honest with you," Siemian said of being named the starter for the third preseason game. "I think it’s a good opportunity for us to take another step as a team." Gary Kubiak will be giddy to hear his new starting quarterback is a veteran at coachspeak. Unless he faceplants on Saturday, Siemian will open the season as the starter.

Coach Mike Mularkey promised Wednesday that the Titans will "find ways" to get Derrick Henry on the field this season.

Mularkey confirmed DeMarco Murray is the "starter," but the Titans are likely to use a two-back offense that could expand to three if Dexter McCluster is incorporated as the passing-down specialist. Henry has looked genuinely special this August. The Titans would be foolish to not give him 10-14 touches per game. With that said, Murray has dominated the first-team preseason snaps so far.

Jeremy Langford (foot) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Langford appears to be questionable at best for the Bears' regular season dress rehearsal, but this is a step in the right direction after his foot was stepped on in Chicago's second preseason game, and Langford spent the next day in a walking boot. All signs still point to this being a minor "injury".

John Brown missed Cardinals practice with a headache on Wednesday.

We usually wait three days to blurb players with seemingly day-to-day injuries, but this is especially concerning after Brown missed three weeks of training camp with a concussion. He was cleared to practice earlier this week. Brown will likely be placed back into the NFL's concussion protocol. We're not quite worried that he'll miss Week 1, but the situation is increasingly troubling.

Coach Pete Carroll confirmed Thomas Rawls (ankle) will not play in the third preseason game, but did say Rawls "will play in the season opener."

It's pretty much as expected and what has been reported the past few days. But it's good to hear it straight from the coach's mouth, even if that coach sees things through rose-colored glasses. Rawls resumed practicing without limitations three days ago. He needs to start the season strong to hold off a back-from-the-dead Christine Michael, who has looked impressive this preseason.

Rob Gronkowski (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday after missing the previous nine days.

Gronkowski "pulled up lame" on August 15, and that's all the media was able to glean from the "injury," though NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the issue, whatever it was, was minor. The Patriots have no reason to push Gronk through summer practices. He'll be fine for the Week 1 opener.

Redskins acquired C Bryan Stork from the Patriots in exchange for a conditional seventh-round pick.

Leaking to the media their intentions to cut Stork early Wednesday, the Patriots were able to finagle something that's slightly more than nothing out of Washington. Now the Redskins are on the hook for Stork's contract, as well. Stork will compete with ineffective incumbent C Kory Lichtensteiger to start in D.C.

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Michael Gehlken reports the Chargers recently offered holdout No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa "their best offer," but Bosa rejected it and talks "are nowhere."

This is past being ridiculous, but it's only getting worse. There was a report earlier this week that the Chargers were willing to give Bosa $10 million of his $17 million signing bonus up front, but that's still not good enough for Bosa's camp. This looks like it could seriously linger into the regular season, and the Chargers have pulled their most recent offer. They also released a public statement, making this a PR war now. In the statement, the team said it'll have to now adjust any further offers because Bosa isn't going to be able to play all 16 regular-season games due to all the missed time. This is getting ugly.
