Broncos hired Vance Joseph as their new head coach.

It's a four-year contract, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Signs have been pointing to Joseph as the Broncos' top choice for about a week now, and with Joseph's Dolphins getting eliminated from the playoffs this past Sunday, it opened the door for the Broncos to move in and make the hire. Joseph was also drawing interest from the Chargers and 49ers, but cancelled those interviews Wednesday. By most accounts, Joseph is a rising star in the coaching world, having just wrapped up his first season as a defensive coordinator after coaching DBs since 2002. It's a homecoming of sorts after Joseph played his college ball at Colorado. The 44-year-old isn't expected to retain DC Wade Phillips and is reportedly looking at Mike McCoy and Bill Musgrave as his OC.

Cam Newton (shoulder) is throwing in team drills during Monday's practice.

NFL Network's Tiffany Blackmon reported Newton would up his practice workload this week, and it appears that has happened. It is still unclear if he will get in any action this preseason, but he remains on track for Week 1.

DeAndre Hopkins has not practiced since August 9 because of a hand injury.

The injury is not believed to be serious, but it is slightly concerning Hopkins has now missed over a week of practice and a preseason game. Missing Monday's practice also suggests the receiver may not be ready for the "dress rehearsal" on Saturday. Hopkins still should be expected to return before Week 1, but this is a situation to monitor.

Anquan Boldin told SiriusXM NFL Radio's Ross Tucker he is "done with the sport of football."

Boldin decided to retire after spending 13 days with the Bills. There was speculation he would be willing to sign on with a contender, but he says his "passion is elsewhere." If this is the end, Boldin finishes his career with 1,076 catches for 13,779 yards and 82 touchdowns. Those numbers rank ninth, 14th, and 23rd all-time respectively.

Dak Prescott said his "chemistry" with Dez Bryant "has grown" this offseason.

"He's been a guy that his ears are wide open, wanting to know what I'm thinking," Prescott said. "It's just been back and forth of just talking and doing it out there on the field and it's only growing." The connection was on display in the second preseason game, with Dez hauling in two passes for 55 yards and an impressive touchdown. A yearly threat for double-digit scores, Dez is a back-end WR1.

A teammate said practice reps were split "dead even" between Chad Henne and Blake Bortles on Sunday.

It is not a surprise considering both Bortles' terrible showing in the second preseason game and myriad reports suggesting Henne would take over the starting job, but it does confirm the Jaguars truly have opened the competition. With Bortles struggling, that battle likely will lead to Henne getting the start Week 1. That is a good thing for the Jaguars' skill players based on what we have seen so far this preseason.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said CB Sean Smith was "defending his sister" when he allegedly attacked her boyfriend over the July 4 holiday.

"I think we’ll let him battle legally what issues he has," Del Rio said. "Obviously, things occurred that were taken issue with, so he’s having to defend himself right now." It looks like the Raiders buy Smith's side of the story and will stand behind him even after he was arrested and charged with felony assault last week. Even without the legal issues, Smith has been struggling on the field and reportedly lost his starting job to T.J. Carrie.

ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports teammates believe Trevor Siemian has won the Broncos' quarterback competition.

As do all outside observers and anyone who watched the team's first two preseason games. Coach Vance Joseph has said he wants the starter set before practices for the third preseason game, often viewed as the "dress rehearsal" for Week 1, so Legwold believes the coach could announce his decision on Monday. The No. 26 overall pick last year, Paxton Lynch is shaping up as a bust.

Jordan Matthews (chest) said he is "confident" he will be ready Week 1.

Matthews was able to get in extremely limited work during Sunday's practice, but he said any type of "upper body" movement even as limited as pumping his arms while running results in pain. Still, he expects the injury to clear up before Week 1. "It’s more pain management," Matthews said. "Let’s get the pain down and get all functional movement back and then when it’s just that one spot hurting, let’s protect that spot and go play football." With Anquan Boldin gone, Matthews should be Buffalo's main target from the slot.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports Le'Veon Bell is expected to report to the Steelers "shortly after" the third preseason game.

Bell's holdout was never expected to last into the regular season, and returning after the "dress rehearsal" game will mean he is able to skip all of the preseason action and still have a couple weeks to settle in for Week 1. Bell remains locked in as one of the first two picks in fantasy drafts.

Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal reports the NFL and Roger Goodell are "close" to a five-year extension.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal is maybe not as close as Kaplan indicated, but he still expects the extension to get done. Goodell's current deal runs out in 2019, so this extension will keep him in the job until 2024. It is interesting timing considering Goodell looks headed toward another legal fight over a suspension, likely has less support from one of the league's most influential owners, Jerry Jones, than before, and is almost certainly on the path to a labor dispute in 2021. Despite the public backlash, however, Goodell apparently is doing exactly what the owners want him to do.

Saints rookie RB Alvin Kamara rushed five times for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's preseason game against the Chargers.

Kamara's first carry of the game was an explosive 50-yard touchdown run. He looked great throughout, running decisively and exploding through the hole. He was also utilized in the passing game, catching a ball in the flat and scampering for a 20-yard gain. Kamara's success seems to have guaranteed him playing time in the regular season, but it's unclear how much.
