Ricky Seals-Jones was arrested and charged with assault, disorderly conduct, and criminal trespassing in Scottsdale, Arizona this past Saturday.

Seals-Jones was arrested after he attempted to use the restroom in the W Hotel in Scottsdale. He then tried to use the facilities at the sushi restaurant located in the hotel and was again denied due to the restrooms only "available to guests." An employee says RSJ "one-hand shoved" him in the shoulder as Seals-Jones attempted to walk past staff. It’s a relatively minor incident, but who knows if anything will come of it, which RSJ could then be subject to a very minor suspension.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports contract-year DT Aaron Donald has "told some close to him" he expects a new deal before the beginning of training camp.

The Rams surprisingly took care of Brandin Cooks before their franchise player. Donald held out of the Rams' offseason program. Donald held out until one day before the opener last season. There's been no word on his thinking on that front for 2018.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim has been suspended five weeks and fined $200,000 by the team after pleading guilty to extreme DUI.

The team decided to get out in front of the league with its punishment. Keim should face no further discipline. The suspension is apparently starting now, and Keim will be "barred from the Cardinals’ facilities and prohibited contact from the team." It's far from ideal timing for a general manager to be away from his club, but Keim will be back before the Cardinals have to cut down from 90 to 53 players.

Cardinals GM Steve Keim has pleaded guilty to "extreme" DUI in Arizona.

The "extreme" designation means Keim was more than twice the legal limit of .08. He could be forced to spend a day in jail. League discipline should be handed down some time in the next few months.

Panthers TE Chris Manhertz (Jones fracture) will begin training camp on the active/PUP list.

Manhertz has a broken left foot. He was injured in June's minicamp. The Panthers are "hopeful" Manhertz will be ready for Week 1, which isn't the same thing as saying he will be ready for Week 1. Manhertz has been slated for No. 2/blocking duties with Ed Dickson departed for Seattle.

Rams signed WR Brandin Cooks to a five-year, $80 million extension through 2023.

The deal includes a modest $20.5 million fully guaranteed. The Rams moved aggressively for Cooks after letting Sammy Watkins walk in free agency, and did not want to lose a field-stretching lid lifter for the second-straight free agency in 2019. It's a bold move considering Watkins' disappointing production with conservative Jared Goff, but the Rams spent the entire offseason talking Cooks up. Still somehow only 25 in September, Cooks is coming off three-straight 1,000-yard seasons, albeit with Drew Brees and Tom Brady at quarterback. He also has stiff target competition in Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods and Todd Gurley. Probably headed for a WR2/3 campaign in fantasy, Cooks will likely be more valuable on the real-life gridiron than virtual.

NFL reinstated Cowboys DE Randy Gregory from his indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Drug bans have limited Gregory to just two appearances since 2015. He turned 25 in the interim. The No. 60 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Gregory has only one sack across 14 NFL appearances, but untapped potential. The Cowboys are perennially in need of pass-rushing help, and Gregory could provide a nice boost in sub-packages if he manages to stay on the field in 2018.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports unsigned franchise player Le'Veon Bell is expected to skip training camp but report for Week 1 for the second-straight season.

Fowler reports Bell holding out regular season games "would be a shock," and that the Steelers fully expect him to be in uniform for Week 1. Bell's agent essentially confirmed the approach in a radio interview. Bell would simply be leaving too much money on the table (over $7 million) to extend his holdout. Fantasy drafters can select Bell in the top three with confidence.

Seahawks contract-year FS Earl Thomas wants to be traded if the Seahawks don't extend him.

Thomas is threatening a training camp holdout after skipping the entire offseason. The Seahawks haven't made progress on an extension, and there are rumors a trade to Dallas is still in play. 29-year-old Thomas missed time with injuries the last two seasons, but there's been no dropoff from his All Pro form. Thomas is targeting $12 million annually on his next deal.

The Newark Star Ledger expects the Eagles to re-sign free agent Corey Graham.

Graham hasn't had any interest in a slow moving safety market. An every-down starter with Buffalo, Graham had a sub-package role in Philly last year, but was a solid veteran presence behind Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod. The Eagles may look to bring back Graham before training camp.

Jaguars signed No. 29 overall pick DL Taven Bryan to a four-year, $10.2 million contract.

The deal includes a fifth-year option and $5.5 million signing bonus. Bryan got slightly above slotted money despite his unproven college track record. The Jaguars plan to use Bryan in a rotation with Calais Campbell and Malik Jackson. He can also play inside in sub-packages.

Cameron Meredith (knee) hopes to be cleared for training camp.

"The main objective is to do as much as I can with the trainers to get ready for the season," Meredith said. "My goal is to try and get back to training camp. As long as there aren't any setbacks, it shouldn't be a problem." Meredith was limited to individual drills at OTAs. The Saints may move him slowly in camp, but he's nearing 100 percent. Meredith has some downside in a new scheme coming off injury, but there's potential for a career year in a Drew Brees offense.

Lions WR Golden Tate thinks Kenny Golladay "can be dominant."

"He’s a WR1 kind of guy." said Tate. "I saw freakish catches, man — some real freakin' freakish catches. Kenny's still a young guy trying to figure it out, but he's moving at a great pace." Golladay drew raves for his route-running at minicamp. After playing through soft-tissue injuries as a rookie, Golladay is in line for a second-year leap as the locked-in No. 3 receiver. Golladay has plug-and-play upside if Tate or Marvin Jones gets injured.

The Falcons want TE Austin Hooper to be more consistent this season.

Hooper didn't live up to expectations last year, managing just two 50-plus yard games. He disappeared for stretches despite solid targets and was sixth among tight ends in drops. With Calvin Ridley added this offseason, it's hard to see a post-hype Hooper breakout. Hooper should make his biggest impact in the red-zone.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Rob Gronkowski will not hold out of training camp.

Gronkowski skipped voluntary OTAs over his contract. His training camp status wasn't in doubt after reporting to mandatory minicamp, but the Patriots have yet to restructure his deal. Gronkowski's contract situation should be updated before Week 1.
