NFL suspended Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe one game for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

This is likely the result of Bowe's arrest for possession of marijuana in November. He pleaded guilty to lesser charges and paid a meager $610 fine, but commissioner Roger Goodell wasn't satisfied. Bowe will miss the opener against the Titans and be back for Week 2. Jamaal Charles will see an even bigger workload, while Bowe's absence could mean more looks for breakout candidate TE Travis Kelce. The Chiefs don't have much behind Bowe at receiver.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor "wants more money" and is considering a training-camp holdout.

Chancellor is already the league's seventh-highest paid safety at $7 million annually after signing a four-year extension two years ago. But he wants more with the guaranteed money on his deal set to wash away next year. With FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) on the shelf for all of training camp and preseason, Chancellor may see a window to force the Seahawks to pay him. He just turned 27. ESPN's Jim Trotter reports the Seahawks "have no intentions of revisiting" Chancellor's deal.

WSOCTV Charlotte reports Panthers WR Stephen Hill was cited for a drug paraphernalia charge after a routine traffic stop.

The drug paraphernalia charge isn't extreme by any means, but Hill is a guy who can't afford any off-field problems after he's been an extreme disappointment on it. The former second-round pick of the Jets had reportedly been a revelation in Panthers spring practices. Hill doesn't have a history of trouble with the law.

Bengals OC Hue Jackson said, "We're going to open it up a little bit more this year and be who I think we can be."

"We're going to open Pandora's box more," Jackson said. "We tickled it a little bit last year. ... It's a chess match, and whoever is not afraid to pull the trigger, pull the trigger. And I'm not afraid, so let's go." The potential for this offense is through the roof and vastly undervalued in fantasy because of the perception of Andy Dalton. But Dalton was playing with a short deck last season where Mohamed Sanu was his No. 1 receiver in a number of games. With A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert healthy and Jeremy Hill entering year two, Cincinnati is going to put up points. Dalton, whose 33-TD season in 2013 has seemingly been forgotten, will have his fair share of top-10 fantasy weeks this year.

Suspended QB Tom Brady wrote on Facebook Wednesday morning, "I am very disappointed by the NFL’s decision to uphold the 4 game suspension against me. I did nothing wrong, and no one in the Patriots organization did either."

"...To try and reconcile the record and fully cooperate with the investigation after I was disciplined in May, we turned over detailed pages of cell phone records and all of the emails that Mr. [Ted] Wells requested," Brady continued. "...There is no "smoking gun" and this controversy is manufactured to distract from the fact they have zero evidence of wrongdoing. I authorized the NFLPA to make a settlement offer to the NFL so that we could avoid going to court and put this inconsequential issue behind us as we move forward into this season. The discipline was upheld without any counter offer. I respect the Commissioner's authority, but he also has to respect the CBA and my rights as a private citizen. I will not allow my unfair discipline to become a precedent for other NFL players without a fight." Brady also explained his "destroyed" cell phone in his response, saying he simply replaced an old, broken Samsung phone with a new iPhone 6.

Chiefs SS Eric Berry (lymphoma) is cancer-free and will practice with the team at training camp Wednesday.

What an awesome bit of news to end the night on a good note after it was revealed star NT Dontari Poe (back surgery) would miss all of camp and much of the season. Berry was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in December after complaining of chest discomfort. He was immediately sent for treatment and has beaten cancer. The Chiefs now have four capable safeties in Berry, Tyvon Branch, Husain Abdullah and Ron Parker. Parker can also play corner.

PFT's Mike Florio reports the NFL offered suspended QB Tom Brady a two-game reduction on his four-game suspension in exchange for a guilty admission.

Per Florio's source, Brady had to admit to having knowledge of whatever ball men John Jastremski and Jim McNally were doing to the footballs, admit to failing to cooperate with the Ted Wells investigation and then apologize. Brady's ban would have then dropped to at least two games and possibly one. It appears Brady is dead-set on taking the NFL to court to get his suspension wiped out completely or he's going to take the heat and sit the four games.

Ravens WR Kamar Aiken "consistently" practiced with the first-team offense at spring workouts, ahead of Breshad Perriman.

The Ravens aren't handing a starting job to first-round pick Perriman, who "needs to become more consistent" after showing a propensity for dropped passes in OTAs and minicamp. Perriman also struggled with drops at UCF. Unlike the Panthers last year with Kelvin Benjamin, the Ravens seem hesitant to throw Perriman into the fire. This is a camp battle to watch throughout August.

The Rams' official website expects Tre Mason to "still play a significant role" in 2015, and believes it's "more probable" Mason starts Week 1 than Todd Gurley.

Writer Myles Simmons believes Gurley will be brought along slowly, and reminds that coach Jeff Fisher "almost always likes to be conservative with rookies." This is true, but the fact that Gurley is avoiding the PUP list to begin camp — and therefore the season — suggests an early-season return, and a big role along with it. Even if he makes a few early-season starts, Mason is best regarded as an RB3/handcuff.

Chiefs NT Dontari Poe (back surgery) could return "early" in the season.

The K.C. Star's Terez Paylor initially tweeted Poe had a "reasonable chance" to return at the "end of the season," but has corrected his error. It's definitely good news, but the Chiefs' own website has already reported Poe will sit out all of camp. There's a good chance he could begin the year on the reserve/PUP list, costing him six games. Jaye Howard will fill in for however long Poe is sidelined.

According to Bengals.com, the team was "hoping to see more" from Denarius Moore this offseason.

Moore's roster odds have improved with James Wright (knee) headed to injured reserve, but he was apparently unimpressive in OTAs and minicamp. It's troubling news for a wideout who has never lacked for physical skills. If Moore can't revive his career under OC Hue Jackson, who coached him to his best season in 2011, it's probably never going to happen.

Bloomberg's Scott Soshnick reports the NFL has asked the U.S. District Court in Manhattan to "confirm" Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

In other words, they're suing Brady before he can sue them. Brady's 2014-15 decision to slightly under-inflate his footballs has resulted in an all-out war with the league. The SportsBusiness Journal's Daniel Kaplan speculates the league's suit is designed to get the matter out of judge David Doty's jurisdiction in Minnesota. Doty has often been a thorn in the NFL's side. Brady's case is looking a bit shaky amidst the revelation he intentionally destroyed his phone on the day of his meeting with investigator Ted Wells.
