Texans signed RB Tim Cornett, formerly of the Cardinals.

UNLV's all-time leading rusher, Cornett lasted just days in Cards camp after initially signing with Bruce Arians' club as an undrafted free agent. He offers plus measurables (4.48, 10'5" broad jump at 6'0/209), and is entering a prime landing spot with Arian Foster on the shelf, and Andre Brown as the lone established NFL player behind Foster. Monitor Cornett in deeper leagues.

Coach Chip Kelly recently stated in a radio interview that the Eagles don't have a single receiver on their roster under 190 pounds.

They actually have two -- Damaris Johnson and Jeff Maehl -- but neither is expected to make the Eagles' 53. Hailed as a sleeper in some fantasy circles before last year, 175-pound Johnson managed two catches for 14 yards in 13 games. Kelly has emphasized increasing his team's size at wide receiver.

Raiders seventh-round CB T.J. Carrie has reportedly been "turning heads" at training camp.

Carrie was the 219th pick in May's draft. The 24-year-old battled knee problems at Ohio, but displayed big-time athleticism in pre-draft workouts with a 4.45 forty and 41-inch vertical. Coach Dennis Allen compared Carrie to Broncos slot CB Chris Harris, whom Allen coached in Denver. Working as the second-team slot corner behind Carlos Rogers, Carrie could push for year-one snaps.

According to Bengals.com, Mohamed Sanu is having a "monster" training camp.

Sanu is getting plenty of reps with the first-team offense while Marvin Jones is sidelined with a tweaked hamstring. Sanu has been lining up all over the field, playing receiver, quarterback, and running back. There's speculation he could have a role similar to Raiders FB Marcel Reece, who was coached by new Bengals OC Hue Jackson. Sanu will be more valuable in real life than fantasy.

Odell Beckham (hamstring) will miss at least another week after his MRI came back negative for a tear on Monday.

While it's good he doesn't have a tear, Beckham's strain has lingered since the spring and become a fairly major concern early in training camp. The Giants hope he'll be back by their second preseason game. OBJ is competing for snaps with Jerrel Jernigan behind Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle. If he can't kick the injury, it's conceivable Beckham would open the season as the Giants' No. 4 receiver. We don't see much reason to take a flier on OBJ in re-draft leagues.

49ers signed RB Alfonso Smith.

With Kendall Hunter (torn ACL) and LaMichael James (dislocated elbow) going down over the weekend, the 49ers needed some depth at running back. Smith, 27, has 48 career carries for 156 yards (3.2 YPC) and two touchdowns across 43 games for the Cardinals. He faces long odds at making the roster.

Cardinals OLB John Abraham was arrested and charged with DUI in Atlanta on June 29.

This may explain why Abraham, 36, has yet to show up to Cardinals camp. He was previously busted for DWI in 2003 while with the Jets, so Abraham may be staring down a suspension once the legal process plays out. Considering how long it takes for these matters to be resolved, it may not even affect Abraham during the 2014 season. Abraham led Arizona with 11.5 sacks last year.

Rod Streater suffered a concussion in Sunday's training camp practice.

Streater led Oakland in receiving last season with a 60-888-4 line and figures to man the slot in three-wide sets. Streater has one previous concussion on his NFL record after suffering one last preseason. He's day-to-day.

Jaguars TE Clay Harbor will miss "more than a few days" with a strained calf.

Harbor had to be carted off the field on Monday night. He entered camp as the heavy favorite for No. 2 tight-end duties behind Marcedes Lewis. Undrafted rookie TE Marcel Jensen will get more looks while Harbor is sidelined.

T.J. Graham dropping passes has been a "recurring theme" during training camp.

According to ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak, "time may be running out" for Graham. The third-year receiver is competing for No. 5 duties and doesn't contribute on special teams. Graham is a long shot to make the 53-man roster. Another team will likely give him a chance thanks to his blazing 4.34 wheels.

Browns signed WR Marlon Moore.

Moore, 27 in September, appeared in 14 games between the Dolphins and 49ers last season, catching seven passes for 62 yards. He was handed a one-game suspension in May and won't be available to play until Week 2. Jobs are up for grabs in Cleveland's jumbled receiver corps.

Suspended WR Josh Gordon has hired the same attorney, Maurice Suh, that helped Richard Sherman win his suspension appeal in December 2012.

Sherman was facing a four-game ban two seasons ago, but won his appeal and was available for Seattle in the playoffs. Gordon has been participating in training camp, and was even running with the starters Monday after previously working with mostly backups. Hopefully for Gordon's sake, the Browns know something we don't. If Gordon simply wins and gets his 16-game ban chopped in half, it'd be a colossal victory. We should have a resolution within a week.

Speaking Monday, GM Kevin Colbert said he didn't "any circumstance" where Ben Roethlisberger did not finish his career with the Steelers.

Roethlisberger's contract has become a talking point even though he's signed through the 2015 season. With their cavalier quarterback now 32 years of age, the Steelers have no reason to rush an extension.

Seahawks signed CB Terrell Thomas.

Back-to-back tears of his right ACL cost Thomas all of 2011-12, but he rebounded to appear in all 16 games for the Giants last season, playing 588 snaps. Although he's not guaranteed a roster spot as he reunites with his college coach Pete Carroll, Thomas is in a good spot to provide veteran insurance for the Seahawks' Legion of Boom.

The Cowboys have been splitting second-year TE Gavin Escobar out wide in training camp practices.

It's part of the Cowboys' ongoing efforts to get Escobar more involved after he played just 207 snaps as a rookie. The 6-foot-6 Escobar has also added five pounds, bulking up from to 249 to 254. There are a lot of mouths to feed in Dallas' passing attack, but Escobar is worth keeping an eye on as an upside TE2.
