Sidney Rice has retired from the NFL after 7 seasons.

Jul 23 - 3:59 PM

Cardinals placed FS Tyrann Mathieu (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Joining him there is DT Alameda Ta'amu (knee). Mathieu said earlier in the month that he's running at about 60-70 percent coming off ACL and LCL reconstruction. He's about eight months removed from the injury, and could be back for the opener. Coach Bruce Arians conservatively put Mathieu's return at October 1.
Jul 23 - 3:38 PM

49ers placed ILB Navorro Bowman (knee) on the active/PUP list.

As expected. Bowman is going to be sidelined throughout camp and the entire preseason. He's unlikely to return until Week 9, following San Francisco's Week 8 bye. Michael Wilhoite is the favorite to open the season in Bowman's starting spot next to Patrick Willis. Bowman shredded his ACL and MCL in the playoffs.
Jul 23 - 3:26 PM

Bears placed FS Chris Conte (shoulder) on the active/PUP list.

Conte had shoulder surgery in April and is now behind the eight ball after a horrific 2013 season. Rookie Brock Vereen will take the first-team reps while Conte is sidelined. Ryan Mundy and Adrian Wilson will handle strong safety.
Jul 23 - 3:22 PM

Bears RG Kyle Long will be sidelined at the beginning of training camp with a viral infection.

He'll be reevaluated next week. Long started all 16 games as a rookie last season and went to the Pro Bowl. He and RT Jordan Mills are both entering their sophomore campaigns and really helped solidify an offensive line that had been a major problem area for years in Chicago. Long's arrow is pointing straight up.
Jul 23 - 3:19 PM

Broncos SLB Von Miller (knee) has been cleared for limited work, and will avoid opening camp on the active/PUP list.

The Broncos will ease Miller back in after he tore his right ACL in Week 16. The Broncos will keep him away from contact until the third preseason game, at the earliest. Barring setbacks, Miller will be on the field for the opener. He slimmed down in the offseason and is fully committed to a bounce-back season. With DeMarcus Ware opposite him, Miller should easily post double-digit sacks.
Jul 23 - 2:59 PM

Broncos placed CB Chris Harris (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Harris is about six months removed from partially tearing his ACL, and estimated he was at 80-85 percent health two weeks ago. He's scheduled to meet with Dr. James Andrews in the near future. Harris is expected to return at some point during camp and be ready to roll for Week 1. Harris will man the slot.
Jul 23 - 2:55 PM

Free agent TE Travis Beckum worked out for the Bears on Wednesday.

Chicago also had G Thomas Austin in for the tryout. Beckum, the 100th overall pick in the 2009 draft, spent three months on the Seahawks' roster over winter, but was cut before OTAs. He hasn't been the same since tearing his ACL when the Giants won their last Super Bowl. Beckum is nearing the end of the road.
Jul 23 - 2:43 PM

Chiefs signed RT Ryan Harris.

Harris, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Broncos. He's appeared in 78 career games, making 39 starts mostly as a right tackle. In K.C., he'll push Donald Stephenson for the starting job opposite Eric Fisher and compete with J'Marcus Webb for swing-tackle duties. Harris made three starts for Houston in 2013.
Jul 23 - 2:35 PM

Washington D.C. Police have asked for the public's help in locating suspended free agent TE Fred Davis, who is wanted for domestic violence.

Details are scarce, but police say the simple assault happened on June 2 around 3 AM in the D.C. area. It's Davis' second run-in with the law since the season ended; he was booked for DUI in February. Davis, 28, is currently serving an indefinite NFL suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. His life has gone off the tracks since a breakout 2011 season.

Daniel Fells has been operating as the Giants' starting tight end through the first two days of training camp.

Fells is the most experienced tight end in camp, as he's made 30 starts in 71 career appearances. However, he was out of the league last season and will turn 31 in September. The Giants may just be giving him the nod early on due to his experience, but it's something worth monitoring. Adrien Robinson has been tabbed the favorite to start at tight end all offseason. He ballooned up close to 290 pounds and reported to camp at 276. Whoever ends up manning tight end -- our money is still on Robinson -- won't be a recommended fantasy option.
Jul 23 - 2:14 PM

Texans signed RT Tyson Clabo to a two-year contract.

Clabo, 33 in October, will push incumbent RT Derek Newton for the starting job after second-year OT Brennan Williams was released this week. Newton surrendered six sacks and 37 quarterback hurries as a 16-game starter last season, while also taking a league-worst 13 penalties and grading out as a bottom-five tackle at PFF. Clabo wasn't much better as a 15-game starter for the Dolphins. He gave up 11 sacks and 31 hurries. We'll give Newton the slight edge.
Jul 23 - 2:07 PM

Coach Doug Marrone confirmed the Bills' starting right guard job is up for grabs.

Kraig Urbik is the incumbent, while Chris Hairston is his main competition. Hairston can play any position on the line besides center and is returning after missing all of last season with an undisclosed illness. Urbik is scheduled to count $3.375 million against the cap. He graded out as a top-20 guard at PFF in 2013, receiving positive marks both in the run and pass games. If LT Cordy Glenn is sidelined into the season, Hairston is more likely to fill in there.
Jul 23 - 2:05 PM

The Tampa Bay Times mentions Bucs RB Bobby Rainey as a player entering camp on the roster bubble.

Rainey rushed for 566 yards and five touchdowns after Doug Martin and Mike James went down with season-ending injuries last season. Both Martin and James are back in the fold, and the Bucs also used a top-70 pick on Charles Sims. Rainey and James are likely competing for one roster spot.
Jul 23 - 1:42 PM

Browns signed No. 8 overall pick CB Justin Gilbert to a four-year contract.

Cleveland and Gilbert were in a stalemate over offset language in his contract. The deal contains a fifth-year club option for 2018. Gilbert gets his contract done just in time for training camp. He's expected to open the season as the starter opposite Joe Haden. With Haden rounding into a shutdown corner, Gilbert is likely to be targeted heavily as a rookie. Buster Skrine will man the slot.
