49ers signed No. 28 overall pick OG Josh Garnett to a four-year contract.

Like with all first-round picks, the deal includes a fifth-year option. Garnett earned the Outland Trophy as the best interior lineman in college football last season. A powerful run blocker with road-grading traits, Garnett could be a quality asset in Chip Kelly's run-heavy offense.

Cardinals CB Justin Bethel (foot surgery) could return in two weeks.

Bethel was expected to be ready for camp after undergoing offseason foot surgery but he suffered a setback about three weeks ago. The Cardinals don't seem too worried about it and it looks like Bethel is still on track for Week 1 against New England. Bethel is fighting to keep his starting job at right corner following an underwhelming 2015 campaign.

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said the team would like to work on a contract extension with C Travis Frederick during training camp.

Frederick is already under contract through 2017 so there's no rush to get a deal done. The 25-year-old has been among the best centers in football since arriving in 2013, earning second-team All-Pro honors in each of his last two seasons. Obviously Jones and company will do whatever they can to keep Frederick in Dallas long term.

Beat writer George Bremer of The Herald Bulletin believes the competition at right guard has been narrowed down to Hugh Thornton and Denzelle Good.

The Colts entered camp with at least four players vying for the starting job at right guard but it appears the field has already been whittled down to two with Thornton and Good emerging as the clear frontrunners. Thornton has started practice at right guard with Good finishing there each of the last three days. Good is transitioning from right tackle while Thornton started at right guard last season.

Cordarrelle Patterson left Friday's practice with an apparent shoulder injury.

He made an incredible catch on a deep ball thrown by Shaun Hill and landed awkwardly on his left shoulder. Patterson stayed down for a while but was eventually helped off by head trainer Eric Sugarman. "I don’t think it’s anything concerning, but they’re taking a look at it," said coach Mike Zimmer. Until we learn more, consider Patterson day-to-day.

Titans placed OLB Kevin Dodd on the active/PUP list.

Dodd missed OTAs while recovering from preventative offseason foot surgery and is a little behind his teammates in terms of conditioning. "We think it’s a short-term PUP," said coach Mike Mularkey. "Every couple days, we’ll test him to see where he’s at." Dodd is expected to begin his career as a rotational pass rusher behind starters Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan.

Lions placed WLB DeAndre Levy on the active/NFI list.

Levy is still recovering from last year's hip surgery. Despite Levy's absence—he watched Friday's practice in a baseball cap and hoodie—coach Jim Caldwell is still convinced Levy will have a major role on defense this year. "We just kind of want to be careful with him and just make certain he’s ready to go," said Caldwell. "At this point in time we want to be a little bit prudent in terms of how we deal with it."

Cameron Brate has put on five pounds of muscle since spring practices.

"I tried to get stronger. That’s the goal every year for me," said Brate. "I’m coming in a couple pounds heavier than I was in the spring, about 5 pounds. So I’m thinking that’s going to help me out as far as blocking goes." Brate is doing and saying all the right things but he's not going to have much of a role this year unless Austin Seferian-Jenkins gets hurt.

Texans signed GM Rick Smith to a four-year contract extension through 2020.

He's in his 11th year as Houston's GM. "Rick's doing a good job for us, and I think stability in the organization is important," said owner Bob McNair. "Rick has put together a good scouting staff, and he works well with the coaching staff. I thought this was a good time to get this done." Smith had a big offseason, poaching Brock Osweiler from Denver and improving the running game by signing Lamar Miller to a four-year contract. He came in at No. 10 in RotoPat's annual GM rankings.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said the team will try second-round OLB Emmanuel Ogbah at defensive end during training camp.

Ogbah got some work there on Friday. The Browns are looking to replace Desmond Bryant, who is out for the year with a torn pectoral muscle. Ogbah played as a 4-3 end in college and was expected to serve as an outside linebacker as a rookie. Acclimating himself as a 3-4 end could take a bit of work, but he sports good size at 6-foot-4, 273-pounds with 35.5-inch arms.

Dorial Green-Beckham reported to Titans camp at 228 pounds.

That's the lightest he's been since arriving as a second-round pick last year. DGB ran well and aced his conditioning test on Friday, a far cry from last offseason when he showed up to camp overweight. Being in better shape is a good first step, but DGB still has more strides to makes as he hopes to improve on a lackluster rookie season.

Chiefs unsigned franchise player Eric Berry was absent for the start of training camp on Friday.

As expected. After failing to reach a long-term deal before the July 15 deadline for franchise players, Berry is now poised to stage a lengthy holdout that could last well into training camp. Because he hasn't signed his franchise tender yet, Berry can skip all of training camp and arrive for Week 1 without facing a fine.

Patriots contract-year LB Jamie Collins said extension talks will "take care of itself."

Collins missed the first day of training camp Thursday, leading some to speculate that he was staging a holdout. However, his absence was excused and Collins was back on the field for Friday's session. The Patriots have some difficult financial decisions ahead with Collins and fellow linebacker Dont'a Hightower both coming off the books next year. Pro Bowl corner Malcolm Butler is also headed for restricted free agency in 2017.

Robert Griffin III received all the first-team snaps at Friday's practice.

It's not exactly a surprising development. Despite Hue Jackson's reluctance to fully commit to him, Griffin is the clear frontrunner for Cleveland's starting quarterback job. Josh McCown worked with the twos on Friday. Unless Griffin gets hurt or completely unravels (which isn't out of the question), the former Redskin should be Cleveland's Week 1 starter.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Dolphins coach Adam Gase isn't a fan of free agent Antonio Cromartie.

Cromartie had previously been linked to Miami given the team's lack of secondary depth, but it's hard to envision him winding up in South Beach unless Gase has a sudden change of heart. The Fins have also kept tabs on Leon Hall, though he'd only be useful at nickel corner and the Dolphins might want someone more versatile. Neither player has drawn much interest this offseason.
