Carson Wentz completed 16-of-30 passes for 222 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' 28-23, Week 6 win over the Panthers.

He added six carries for 25 yards. Wentz started out slow, getting strip sacked for a lost fumble to kill Philly's first drive. Wentz didn't feel Julius Peppers coming. The absence of RT Lane Johnson was evident, as Wentz was getting bombed from the right side. Set up with excellent field position by a pair of Panthers turnovers, however, Wentz converted two bunny scores and got on track. The three-touchdown effort was his second in as many games after he had previously never crossed the threshold. The lone negative for Wentz this evening was the number of unnecessary hits he exposed himself to. That was a problem for him at times as a rookie. Wentz gets the Redskins on Monday Night Football in Week 7.

Speaking on SiriusXM NFL Radio, ESPN's Adam Schefter said he thinks "it's possible Le'Veon Bell sits out the first half of the year if he doesn't get a long-term deal done."

Considering it is deadline day for franchise-tagged players to sign a long-term deal, this feels like a leak by Bell's camp to put pressure on the Steelers. That said, Bell did skip all of training camp last season, and it makes sense for him to hold out as long as possible to avoid both an injury and shouldering another 400 touches. Bell's No. 1 overall upside is tough to pass up, but he is a risk at the top of fantasy drafts.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said he "can't say" if Carson Wentz (ACL) will be ready Week 1.

"I can tell you it’s not going to be a Doug Pederson decision. It will be a doctors’ decision," the coach added. "Carson will have to be 100 percent before he takes the field. I am going to rely totally on my medical staff." Considering Wentz took part in 7-on-7 drills during OTAs, this sounds like a coach being extra cautious. Still, it is at least a possibility Wentz is not ready to go Week 1, something to seriously consider at his sixth-round ADP.

In the premiere of Peter King's Football Morning in America, former Giants coach Ben McAdoo writes he needs "to handle players, and work with players, better" in his next stop.

The lesson was just one of several the former coach wrote about in the guest section of King's new column. In addition to his relationship with players, McAdoo admits he needs to have a less adversarial approach with the media in his next job, and he thinks better "bedside manner" would have helped in his decision to bench Eli Manning late last season. McAdoo defends the decision which he admits probably got him fired, however, writing he "made this call to try to make the Giants stronger for the future." McAdoo will spend this year out of football, but he has every intention of returning to the league.

In the premiere of Peter King's Football Morning in America (link below), Aaron Rodgers said he would "love to play to 40."

Rodgers will not turn 35 until December, but he is already thinking ahead. He notes players like Tom Brady and Brett Favre have had success after 40, but more mobile quarterbacks like him have struggled to remain effective into their late 30s. "My goal is be able to move like I do or close to how I do and still be able to do that at 40," Rodgers said. "Steve Young’s career was cut short in his late thirties. John [Elway], the same ... So to be able to move the same way at 38, 39, 40 would be cool. That’s my aim." Expected to sign a long-term extension before Week 1, there is little reason to doubt Rodgers will remain one of the best in the league for several years to come.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions and franchise-tagged DE Ezekiel Ansah are not expected to reach a deal prior to Monday's deadline.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the same over the weekend. Although Ansah recorded 12 sacks last season, nine of those came in three games, and injuries continue to be a real concern. He is easily their biggest talent on the defensive line, but it makes sense for Detroit to take a wait-and-see approach. Playing under the tag, Ansah will earn $17.143 million this season, his age-29 campaign.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams are not expected to sign franchise-tagged S Lamarcus Joyner to a long-term deal before Monday's deadline.

Joyner has already signed his one-year, $11.287 million tender, so he will be in camp and ready to go no matter what happens. Schefter reports the two sides will continue to talk leading up to the 4 ET deadline, but there is not much optimism. Joyner broke out last season after switching full-time to safety.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports negotiations between franchise-tagged Le'Veon Bell and the Steelers "will go down to the wire."

The deadline to sign a deal is 4 ET Monday afternoon. Coach Mike Tomlin said over the weekend he is optimistic a deal will get done, but ESPN's Adam Schefter painted a less rosy picture on Sunday night, saying it will be "challenging" for the two sides to reach an agreement. Bell will likely skip training camp again this season if he does not land a long-term contract.

Darren Sproles wrote Sunday that 2018 will be his final NFL season.

Sproles, who turned 35 last month, is coming off a torn ACL. "Coming back from any injury is tough -- especially a knee injury for a running back," he wrote. "I wondered if I was going to come back the same, if I would still have my quickness. ... Once I started rehabbing and running again I could tell I was good and ready for one more healthy year." Sproles noted he is currently eighth on the NFL's all-time list for career all-purpose yards, and his goal is to catch Tim Brown at No. 5. Sproles is currently 527 total yards behind Brown.

The Steelers have "made some progress" in extension talks with Le'Veon Bell.

Bell plans to hold out of training camp if the sides can't get something done before the July 16 deadline. The Steelers haven't been willing to meet Bell's $17 million AAV asking price, but talks have at least ramped up. Bell will make $14.5 million if he plays 2018 under the franchise tag.
Jul 14 - 3:21 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "barring a significant turn of events" Cowboys LE DeMarcus Lawrence will play 2018 under the franchise tag.

Dallas has been in a contract standoff with Lawrence for months. Lawrence wants a five-year deal, but the Cowboys need to save cap space with Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott due for extensions. Lawrence will make $17.1M under the tag and is a candidate to leave in free agency next offseason. Lions DE Ziggy Ansah is also expected to play 2018 without a new deal.

DeMarco Murray announced his retirement after seven seasons.

A third-round pick of the Cowboys in 2011, Murray was one of the most productive running backs in football during his prime. The former Oklahoma Sooner earned three Pro Bowl nods over his seven seasons and was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2014. He led the league with 1,845 rushing yards that year while guiding Dallas to a division title. The 30-year-old probably could have continued his career as a backup—the Dolphins, Lions, Saints and Seahawks were among teams interested in him this offseason—but ultimately chose to hang up his cleats. For his career, Murray totaled 7,174 rushing yards and 55 touchdowns (49 rushing, six receiving) over 99 games for Dallas, Philadelphia and Tennessee.
