NFL suspended Colts WR LaVon Brazill for at least one season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

A multiple offender, Brazill was suspended the first four games of 2013 for the same offense. Brazill was unlikely to make an offensive impact for the Colts this season, but his steady contributions on special teams will be missed. The Brazill ban opens the door for Da'Rick Rogers and rookie Donte Moncrief to battle for playing time behind T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne, and Hakeem Nicks.

Titans agreed to terms with No. 11 overall pick OT Taylor Lewan on a four-year contract.

Lewan was the lone remaining unsigned member of the 2014 draft class. He'll report for the first day of camp on Friday. As is the case with all first-round picks, the deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2018. Lewan will get run at both tackle spots in camp, but is currently behind Michael Roos at left tackle and Michael Oher at right. We'd assume he has his sights set on Oher. Roos is fully expected to remain on the blindside this season.

Browns moved RB Terrance West off active/NFI and onto the active roster.

The rumor was that West failed his conditioning test, but he denied that. Regardless, it doesn't matter now. He's on the active roster, working out with the team and will be ready to do battle with Ben Tate for the starting running back job when full-squad work begins Saturday. West's brief stint on active/NFI will have no impact on his progress.

Jonathan Stewart pulled his hamstring prior to training camp and will miss the first 1-2 weeks.

Coach Ron Rivera says the pull isn't as serious as some hamstring injuries can be, and added that Stewart will remain on the active roster. Still, it's not the way to start off a season for a player that's missed so much practice time due to nagging injuries over the last few years. DeAngelo Williams will soak up first-team reps as he forges his nose in front of this committee attack.

Coach Chuck Pagano said he'd like to have a "bell cow" at running back this season.

In the same breath, Pagano said he isn't against employing a running back by committee. The message is clear. Ideally, Trent Richardson will find the form that made him the third overall pick in the 2012 draft, and become a 260-carry workhorse this season. But he'll be on a short leash, with Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard both ready to fill roles if Richardson faceplants again. For now, we've placed T-Rich 26th among running backs in our Draft Guide -- a ranking that will rise if he separates in camp.

Suspended Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon was arrested on marijuana possession charges Wednesday night.

According to police in Edmond, Oklahoma, Blackmon was stopped for a traffic violation and officers could smell an odor of marijuana coming from the car. After a search, marijuana was found and Blackmon was taken into custody. It's the latest transgression for the Jaguars wideout, who was suspended indefinitely last October following repeated violations of the substance-abuse policy. This certainly won't help Blackmon as he aims to get reinstated for the 2015 season. Blackmon has now been suspended three times since 2010.

NFL suspended Ray Rice for the first two games of the 2014 season.

Rice was arraigned on felony aggravated assault charges following an ugly April domestic incident with his fiancee (now wife) at an Atlantic City hotel. He avoided trial by completing a pretrial-intervention program, and this is his first violation of the league's personal conduct policy. Still, it's a bad look for the NFL as Rice gets off lightly while Josh Gordon faces a 16-game ban for marijuana. As for the on-field fallout, Bernard Pierce will serve as the feature back and quality RB2 against the Bengals in Week 1 and Steelers in Week 2. Rice will have to show improved form to wrestle back his job after looking done in 2013 (3.08 YPC).

Eagles LG Evan Mathis is not holding out.

Mathis created a stir around draft time when he asked for a raise on the five-year, $25 million deal he signed in 2012. The Eagles responded by allowing the All-Pro to seek a trade. That's all water under the bridge now, as 32-year-old Mathis attended the offseason program and has now reported to training camp. He'll be a major cog in one of the game's best offensive lines.

Falcons signed WR Roddy White to new four-year contract worth up to $30 million.

It's a three-year extension with $10 million guaranteed. White was entering the final year of a six-year, $48 million deal he signed in August of 2009. Now he's tied to the Falcons through 2017 and will get $18 million over the next two years. It's a long deal for a 32-year-old receiver, but White showed he has plenty left in the tank by averaging 8.6 catches for 100.4 yards with two touchdowns over the final five weeks of last season. The career-long Falcon will remain a focal point of the offense along with Julio Jones, forming one of the game's best receiving duos. White's current fantasy ADP is the fourth-/fifth-round turn, where he is a value pick with lower-end WR1 potential, particularly in PPR leagues.

Josh Gordon will appeal his one-year suspension in a meeting with the NFL on Aug. 1.

Gordon's appeal doesn't have much teeth. Since the latest failed drug test that triggered Gordon's ban, a "passenger" in his car was cited for marijuana and he was arrested in North Carolina on suspicion of DWI. It would be a shock if the 16-game suspension is reduced. The Browns are just hoping to get Gordon back in 2015. He led the NFL in receiving yards last season and became the first player in league history with back-to-back 200-yard receiving games.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Cordarrelle Patterson will continue to return kickoffs despite his increased offensive role.

Patterson was the best kick returner in the NFL last season. "We want our best players to get their hands on the ball as much as possible," Zimmer said. "We’re not going to keep him from returning kicks because he is such a dangerous weapon there." Zimmer suggested the jury remains out on whether Patterson will become an equally dynamic wide receiver. "For him to take the next step," Zimmer said, "we’re going to have to see how he gets off a jam and the things that people will try to do to take him away."

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Terrance West (NFI) will practice on Friday.

This appears to be a true non-story. West says he passed his conditioning test. If he does indeed practice Friday with the other Cleveland first-year players, he'll miss zero meaningful time. The Browns' full-squad workouts don't begin until Saturday. West versus Ben Tate is one of the biggest competitions of summer.
