Chiefs signed RB Jamaal Charles to a two-year, $18.1 million contract extension through 2017.

So much for that holdout. Charles is now the second-highest paid running back in the league behind Adrian Peterson and is locked up through his age-31 campaign. On his previous deal, Charles was scheduled to make $3.9 million in salary and bonuses this season. He'll now make $8.3 million in 2014. It's well deserved after Charles put the Chiefs' offense on his back and carried them to the playoffs in 2013. Charles is entering his age-28 season. He's a locked-in top-three fantasy back, along with Peterson and LeSean McCoy.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said using both Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman is best for the team.

Freeman is still expected to be the lead back, but it is clear Coleman will have a much bigger role after seeing just 89 touches as a rookie. Even so, with Freeman dominating the passing-down and red-zone work, it is tough to see Coleman carrying any standalone value while Freeman is healthy. Coleman would be a borderline RB1 if something happened to Freeman, however, making him a great, high-upside target in the middle rounds.

Dolphins second-round CB Xavien Howard (knee) was placed on the active/PUP list.

Howard needed minor surgery to repair a knee injury he suffered on the final day of minicamp. He is expected to be ready at some point in the preseason. With Howard sidelined, sophomore Tony Lippett will get a huge head start in the battle for the No. 2 job.

Drew Rosenhaus believes Browns coach Hue Jackson is "very committed" to working with Josh Gordon.

"I do believe the Browns are a big part of Josh getting reinstated," Rosenhaus said on PFT Live. "I really do think that the Browns are committed to Josh and want to see him succeed." The Browns released a statement on Monday confirming Gordon will get another chance, and it appears they are privately giving off the impression they are willing to work with him as well. Gordon is expected to report to camp a couple days early this week.

Pro Football Talk reports the Bills and free agent RB Reggie Bush are still talking.

Bush was heavily linked with Buffalo following the four-game suspension to Karlos Williams, but Bush wants to take his time with the decision. "As of right now, I haven’t made a decision," Bush said earlier this month. "I’m still trying to figure out what’s going to be the best opportunity for me and my family." With no other reported interest in the former No. 2 overall pick, it would be surprising if he did not end up with Buffalo.

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said the team is still looking at free agent DE/OLB Dwight Freeney.

Freeney surprised with eight sacks in 11 games with the Cardinals last season, but the 36-year-old has not found much interest on the open market. He did visit with the Falcons in May, but Atlanta decided to pass. It is possible they will change their mind if they do not like what they see early in camp. The Bengals and Bucs have also been linked.

Colts OC Rob Chudzinski said sophomore WR Phillip Dorsett can be a "big-time playmaker."

With Coby Fleener in New Orleans, the Colts are expected to utilize more three-wide sets moving forward. That should open up a much bigger role for Dorsett, who was limited to 11 games and 39 targets as a rookie. The Colts lost over 220 targets from last season. It would not be surprising if a decent chunk of those looks went to Dorsett.

Falcons released KR/WR Devin Hester.

Hester struggled to recover from January surgery to repair two broken sesamoid bones in his right big toe, but it is possible he would have been cut even without the injury. Primarily a kick returner in his two seasons with Atlanta, Hester's value has been damaged by the new kickoff rules. He could latch on somewhere else if he is able to get healthy, but the 33-year-old is nearing the end of the line.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said there are no long-term concerns about Jordy Nelson's (active/PUP) knee.

Nelson was somewhat surprisingly placed on the active/PUP list to start camp, but it sounds like the Packers are just being cautious. He can be removed from the list at any time. Almost a full year removed from tearing his ACL, Nelson's stay on the PUP should be fairly short.

Speaking on PFT Live, ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi said the Browns' quarterback battle is "not an open competition."

Grossi said Robert Griffin III will get four out of five reps with the first-team offense. Coach Hue Jackson has refused to name Griffin the starter heading into camp, but it appears the job is all but sewn up. If third-rounder Cody Kessler shows well enough to earn the backup job, the Browns could trade Josh McCown in camp.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher reports Jamaal Charles' workload will not be limited "if he's healthy and he's the same player he was before the knee injury."

This is music to the ears of Charles truthers, but Teicher did add a big caveat. Charles will be 30 in December and is coming off his second knee surgery in the last four years. He also has company in the backfield after Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West combined for 1,256 total yards and 11 scores last season. Charles will still clearly be the lead back if healthy, but he should lose touches to Ware and perhaps even West regardless of health.

TMZ Sports reports Tre Mason's family is concerned about his mental health and personal safety.

Mason has been involved with the police on five separate occasions over the past four months. The most recent incident occurred on Saturday when multiple units were called to Mason's home in the middle of the afternoon. Mason was not arrested, but it has become clear he is struggling. Hopefully he can get the help he needs. Rams coach Jeff Fisher has already conceded there is a good chance Mason is "not going to be" with the team in the near future.
