Free agent QB Kevin Kolb was arrested for boating while intoxicated over the weekend in Willacy County, Texas.

Kolb was arrested on Saturday, June 28 and was released Sunday morning after spending about 11 hours in the drunk tank. Soon-to-be 30-year-old Kolb was released by the Bills in March after spending all of last season on injured reserve due to recurring concussion issues. His career is hanging in the balance.

Profootballtalk reports the Chiefs have a "loose goal" of replacing ex-GM John Dorsey by training camp.

Per Mike Florio, Dorsey's replacement will report directly to owner Clark Hunt, as Dorsey supposedly did. "Supposedly" because it's unmistakable who calls the shots on the football side in Kansas City: Coach Andy Reid. ESPN reports in-house candidates to replace Dorsey are co-director of player personnel Brett Veach and pro personnel scout Mike Borgonzi.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports one of the issues the Chiefs had with fired GM John Dorsey was his inability to get extensions with Justin Houston and Eric Berry done faster.

Per Pelissero, the Chiefs believed the slowness "cost them more later." It makes sense on the surface, but that's hardly a rarity with blue-chip players. The delay in Berry's case seemed more questionable than the delay in Houston's. The national media is reporting widespread shock at Dorsey's abrupt departure. The Chiefs are clearly comfortable with Andy Reid being the brains of the operation.

Chiefs fired GM John Dorsey.

It's a stunning, baffling move. Like coach Andy Reid, Dorsey was heading into the final year of his contract. Owner Clark Hunt informed Dorsey he would not be receiving an extension, essentially firing him by way of forcing him out. Dorsey was hired to do Reid's bidding. There had been no indications of friction. Reid's already mammoth power in Kansas City now increases. It's hard to know how much of Reid's credit Dorsey deserved, but on the surface, he did an absolutely fantastic job during his four years with the Chiefs. It is worth noting the Chiefs are in salary cap shambles. Dorsey won't be on the open market for long. A Ted Thompson acolyte, Dorsey has been mentioned as a possible successor for Thompson in Green Bay.

Chiefs signed coach Andy Reid to a contract extension.

Reid was entering the final season of his original five-year deal. The terms of the extension have yet to be made public — they often never are with coaches — but it's richly deserved. Reid is 43-21 (.672) as a Chief, making the playoffs 3-of-4 seasons. He has coached around major deficiencies on offense, and been completely reinvigorated on his stale final few years in Philadelphia. Reid turned 59 in March.

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Giants co-owner John Mara said Eli Manning has "a lot of years left in him."

It's the exact opposite of what Mara and most of the Giants' brass were saying earlier this offseason. Speaking in March, Mara said he was open to drafting Manning's successor. The G-Men ended up settling on third-round question mark Davis Webb. Headed into his age-36 campaign, Manning simply wasn't good enough in 2016. Coach Ben McAdoo said as much in March. The G-Men need a rebound.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports Derek Carr's five-year, $125-million extension contains $40 million fully guaranteed.

According to Pelissero, the deal includes $70 million in total guarantees. Those numbers put him below Andrew Luck, but he did edge him out in average annual value. More interestingly, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the deal "features a delayed cash flow" which will both help the Raiders re-sign players like Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper and allow Carr to earn more money after the Raiders move to Nevada, which has no state income tax.

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta said his "best guess" is Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls will "take a fairly equal share of the basedown carries."

Condotta prefaced his prediction by saying performance will dictate the carry split, but his guess is still notable after the Seahawks paid Lacy like a starting running back in March. Rawls has earned praise for his offseason work, however, while Lacy has been sidelined recovering from an ankle injury. With weight, health, and now workload concerns, Lacy is one of the riskiest early-round picks this year, but his upside could be worth it.

The Nashville Tennessean's Jason Wolf speculates Tajae Sharpe (foot surgery) may have a "tenuous grasp on a roster spot" entering training camp.

Recovering from surgery on his right foot, Sharpe is expected to be ready for camp, but coach Mike Mularkey said he could have a "hard time" if he is not able to stay in shape. "Obviously he’s not going to run right now, but he’s got to do something to stay in shape," Mularkey said. "You’ve got to be ready to go. No matter what your injury is, there’s something you can do, cardio-wise, to train." After earning a starting job last year, Mularkey's comments suggest Sharpe could be competing for a job this time around. Even if he sticks on the roster, Sharpe is not going to be fantasy relevant behind Eric Decker, Corey Davis, and Rishard Matthews.

Raiders signed Derek Carr to a five-year, $125-million extension through 2022.

Ian Rapoport was first with the news, but Carr confirmed it himself on Twitter, saying he always wanted to be a "Raider 4 life." The $25-million average makes Carr the highest-paid player in NFL history, but the structure of the deal could be interesting with the Raiders moving to Nevada, which does not have a state income tax, and the current CBA set to expire during the course of the deal. Either way, Carr's future with the Raiders is now secure. With this deal wrapped up, Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins could be the next dominos to fall.

Steelers.com's Bob Labriola wrote he "cannot imagine a realistic scenario" in which franchise-tagged Le'Veon Bell holds out into the season.

Bell has yet to sign his franchise tender, but when he does he will be owed $12.1 million, almost $6 million more than any other running back will receive in base salary this year. Even if he does not get the long-term deal he wants before the July 17 deadline, Bell is unlikely to leave that kind of money on the table. While some contract certainty would be nice, Bell is still safe to select with one the top two picks in fantasy drafts.

Eric Ebron believes the Lions' offseason additions at tight end will allow him to "do the things that I’m best at."

The Lions added two block-first tight ends in the offseason, signing Darren Fells in free agency and selecting Michael Roberts in the fourth round. Those two should allow Ebron to play more of a receiving role, something he believes will be "significant." After seeing 85 targets in 13 games last year, Ebron has a real path to 100 this season, and Anquan Boldin's departure leaves 22 red-zone targets up for grabs. If healthy, Ebron could finally be ready for a breakout.
