Saints signed OLB Junior Galette to a multi-year contract extension.

Galette inked a three-year, $6.3 million contract ahead of last season before breaking out for 12 sacks under DC Rob Ryan. The 26-year-old former UDFA out of tiny Stillman has 21.5 sacks across the past three seasons and has formed a menacing pass-rush duo along with LE Cameron Jordan. Galette doesn't produce many tackles. He isn't a strong IDP player outside of sack-heavy formats.

Letroy Guion will be the Packers' starting nose tackle this season.

B.J. Raji (torn biceps) is out for the year. Guion missed most of camp with a hamstring injury, but has been practicing for the past week. Guion has good size but plays below-average run defense. It's a favorable matchup for Marshawn Lynch in Week 1. Guion will be flanked by Datone Jones and Mike Daniels.

Second-year CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson appears to have won the Titans' right corner job over Coty Sensabaugh.

A revised depth chart released by Tennessee shows Wreh-Wilson ahead of Sensabaugh, with Jason McCourty stationed at left corner. Sensabaugh will be the Titans' nickel back and slot cornerback. Wreh-Wilson is the better target in IDP leagues, although he probably has a DB3 ceiling. Safeties are preferable.

Free agent G/C Ryan Jensen currently suffers from severe sleep apnea.

Jensen, a sixth-round pick of the Ravens in 2013, was part of Baltimore's final cuts over the weekend. The Baltimore Sun observed Jensen being visibly "groggy" and "more irritable" this summer. Sleep apnea is common, but Hall of Famer Reggie White died in his sleep due to complications from his severe sleep apnea. The Ravens were fairly high on Jensen prior to this summer.

The Titans have elevated rookie Bishop Sankey to No. 2 on their tailback depth chart.

He's still behind Shonn Greene, but passed Dexter McCluster. Per beat writer Paul Kuharsky, "all three will be part of the rotation and game plans and matchups will do a lot to dictate their usage." Greene will open the season as the slight favorite for carries over Sankey, and should get almost all short-yardage and goal-line work. McCluster will play the Danny Woodhead role under ex-Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt. Although his ascent has been slow, we still expect Sankey to emerge from this pack as the Titans' leader in 2014 touches.

A.Q. Shipley took all of the Colts' first-team reps at center during Monday's practice.

Shipley was claimed off waivers on Sunday, but is at least somewhat familiar with the team after spending 2012 in Indy. No. 1 center Khaled Holmes is still battling a high-ankle sprain. He's not expected to play Week 1. The Colts have been hit hard by injuries up front. Their Week 1 line projects as LT Anthony Castonzo, LG Jack Mewhort, C Shipley, RG Hugh Thornton, RT Gosder Cherilus.

Chiefs signed S Kurt Coleman.

Coleman was part of the Vikings' final cuts after inking a one-year deal with Minnesota in March. He was drafted by coach Andy Reid in Philadelphia and will be Kansas City's No. 4 safety. Coleman will mainly cover kicks for the Chiefs.

Lamar Miller is listed as the Dolphins' starting running back on the latest depth chart.

It's not a surprise, as the expectation continues to be that Miller will get the "starts" and most of the early-down work while Knowshon Moreno has emerged as the favorite for third-down and passing-game duties. Moreno could chip into Miller's snaps after Miller failed to produce during the preseason. The thing to take away is that Moreno's stock is on the rise, and Miller is treading water.

Coach Mike Pettine continued to praise Ben Tate as a three-down running back, calling Tate the "guy you can trust the most right now."

After the Browns cut Dion Lewis and Chris Ogbonnaya, Tate became the clear leader for third-down duties. He already had early-down work sewn up after a strong preseason coupled with Terrance West's disappointing summer. "He’s been solid in protection. I think he does a nice job catching the ball," Pettine said. "Probably the guy you can trust the most right now would be Ben." Look for Tate to carry the ball 15-20 times per game under OC Kyle Shanahan. There's potential for high-end RB1 production. Tate just needs to stay healthy.

Giants MLB Jon Beason (foot) returned to practice Monday and expects to play Week 1 against the Lions.

Whether Beason plays a part-time or full-time role remains to be seen. Monday was his first practice since tearing a ligament and breaking a bone in his toe in June, so there's ground to be made up. The Giants are going to lean on their defense early on while the offense tries to work through its preseason problems. Beason is an integral part of the Giants' run defense at the MIKE spot.

Coach Mike Pettine said he believes undrafted CB Robert Nelson has a chance to be a starter at some point.

Nelson profiles as a slot corner at 5'9/175. The UDFA attended Cleveland's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The Browns then signed Nelson, and he ended up making the 53-man roster. After spending a few years looking for a complement to Joe Haden, the Browns now have one of the deeper cornerback depth charts in the league. Nelson will likely cover kicks as a rookie.
Sep 2 - 9:37 AM

Ravens re-signed CB Derek Cox.

Cox, 28 later this month, was signed by the Ravens last week. He was then apart of final cuts. Cox had drawn interest from at least one other team, but chose to re-up in Baltimore where the cornerback depth chart is churning behind starters Lardarius Webb and Jimmy Smith. Cox will compete for a role in sub-packages, likely as an outside corner when Webb moves to the slot.

Bucs OC Jeff Tedford (medical procedure) may miss Week 1 against the Panthers.

52-year-old Tedford underwent a "medical procedure" last week. He's been working part-time from home since then, and may not be ready to return to the coaching box by Sunday. If Tedford can't be in attendance, QBs coach Marcus Arroyo will call the offensive plays. Tampa Bay's offensive line was dominated all preseason. They have a tough test against Carolina's front seven.

The Houston Chronicle doesn't expect Ryan Mallett to challenge for the Texans' starting job anytime soon.

Per beat writer Brian Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick is "locked in" as coach Bill O'Brien's starter. Mallett is being brought to Houston as a quarterback with familiarity of the offense. We don't doubt that Fitzpatrick is the guy for right now, but once he struggles, because he certainly will, the Mallett chants will begin.

Third-round OG Gabe Jackson is the Raiders' starting left guard.

Jackson was competing with veteran Khalif Barnes for the job for most of camp, and ended up getting the nod after Barnes supplanted Menelik Watson at right tackle. Jackson is a strong power blocker at 6'3/336. The Raiders' line reads LT Donald Penn, LG Jackson, C Stefen Wisniewski, RG Austin Howard, RT Barnes.
