Browns claimed OT Michael Bowie off waivers from the Seahawks.

The Super Bowl champs figure to be none-too-pleased by rookie Browns GM Ray Farmer's sniping of their 2013 starting right tackle, but Seattle GM John Schneider knew the risk of waiving Bowie injured as opposed to keeping him on the roster and placing Bowie on I.R. at final cuts. Bowie is an unlikely 2014 contributor due to a severe shoulder injury, but excelled in nine starts last season, particularly as a run blocker, and was just barely 22 years old. The Browns figure to stash Bowie on I.R. and let him compete for a job in 2015.

The Boston Globe's Ben Volin reported the NFL will not seek a stay of Judge Richard Berman's decision to nullify Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

This confirms an earlier report from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This means Brady will be able to play while the NFL appeals the ruling. With the appeal process likely to take several months, Brady should get in a full season regardless of the appeal decision.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported several owners did not want the NFL to appeal the Deflategate decision.

Cole reports several owners want to see this saga "end once and for all." Goodell almost had to appeal the decision which blasted the league's handling of the Deflategate situation, but it is yet another decision which could strain his relationship with the owners. Cole reports the NFLPA and the owners agree the NFL needs to overhaul the disciplinary process.

In a statement, Roger Goodell confirmed the NFL will appeal Judge Richard Berman's decision to nullify Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport does not expect the NFL to seek an injunction which would keep Brady from playing while the appeal process plays out. Judge Berman's decision was a clear and almost comprehensive win for Brady and the NFLPA, but Goodell likely feels he has to appeal in order to save face. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported multiple owners do not want the NFL to appeal and are wondering if Goodell has too much power in player discipline.

The NFL is not expected to seek an injunction which would keep Tom Brady off the field during the appeal of Thursday's decision.

The NFL will almost certainly appeal the decision to vacate Brady's four-game ban, but they do not have to seek an injunction which would keep Brady off the field. Brady will be under center in the season opener, and barring injury should be the starter all season. He is now a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Cowboys DE Greg Hardy is considering an appeal of his four-game suspension in the wake of Tom Brady's appeal win.

Hardy saw his 10-game suspension reduced to four games in July, but he still feels hard done after being forced to sit out all but one game last year. Brady's win in federal court could give Hardy the confidence to seek out a similar result. If Hardy can earn a stay, the Cowboys' defensive line will be a position of strength entering the season.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman nullified Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

The NFL will likely appeal the decision, but Brady will be under center for the Patriots' opener on September 10. Most reports suggested Brady's team had the stronger case, and the NFL's decision not to pursue a settlement when Brady was reportedly open to one earlier this week is yet another puzzling decision from the NFL office. Brady should now be considered a top-five fantasy option and a solid DFS play in his tasty Week 1 matchup against the Steelers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Chuck Pagano is entering a "make-or-break year" as the Colts' head coach.

There have been whispers of a schism between GM Ryan Grigson and Pagano, which were initially relayed by CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora and the Indy Star's Bob Kravitz. FOX Sports' Mike Garofolo reported that one of the reasons for tension is Grigson's belief that Donte Moncrief should have played over a clearly-washed-up Reggie Wayne last season. Pagano has been tight with Wayne since they were both at the University of Miami (FL). Pagano has reportedly rejected a "couple of one-year extension" offers from the Colts. Pagano also attempted to emphasize a "run-first" approach with Trent Richardson in 2013, even when Andrew Luck was the Colts' best means of moving the ball. If Pagano doesn't earn a new contract this year, Grigson could conceivably turn to the college ranks for a more innovative coach, or promote impressive third-year OC Pep Hamilton.

Packers second-year WR Jeff Janis is behind rookie Ty Montgomery because Janis "hasn't fully won over his quarterback yet."

Trust is critical between pass catchers and their quarterbacks. Aaron Rodgers apparently doesn't yet trust Janis enough for him to have a significant role in Green Bay's offense. "Jeff will have some great days and some days where mentally he's making too many mistakes," Rodgers said. "The talent and athleticism is there. We just need to see from all those guys battling for those two spots just some more consistency." Janis has a higher ceiling than Montgomery, but needs to start climbing the depth chart to make any 2015 fantasy noise.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano confirmed Victor Cruz (calf, knee) is "very much in doubt" to play in Week 1.

Cruz admitted Tuesday that his availability is in question, and at this point we'd bet against him suiting up Week 1 at Dallas. Rueben Randle would handle No. 2 duties behind Odell Beckham, with Preston Parker in the slot. Cruz has no timetable for return. He's an unlikely fantasy contributor in 2015.

Coach Rex Ryan expressed some doubt whether LeSean McCoy (hamstring) will be ready Week 1.

"I hope," Ryan said. "If not then the next man has to step up. So we will see. If he is not ready to go, he won’t be in there." According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, McCoy is dealing with a "small tear" in the hamstring and "it tore in a spot where it couldn't have been any better." McCoy has done next to nothing at practice the past two weeks, as he's only able to perform light footwork, agility, and cardio. If McCoy can't suit up Week 1, it'll be Karlos Williams, Bryce Brown, and Anthony Dixon, though Williams is recovering from an injury of his own.

Colts DT Arthur Jones needs surgery to repair torn ligaments in his ankle and could miss the entire season.

Jones may also have joint damage. It sounds pretty serious, and Jones, at best, is expected to miss at least half the season and could even head to injured reserve. After signing Jones to a five-year, $33 million deal last offseason, the Colts have gotten little return on investment. Jones missed half of last season with ankle issues. Zach Kerr and rookie Henry Anderson will have to pick up the slack.
