Ravens signed QB David Olson.

You're forgiven if you've never heard of Olson, a "Champions Indoor Football" product. This could be a prank and we would be none the wiser. Now 25, "Olson" rode the pine behind Andrew Luck at Stanford before transferring to Clemson, where he attempted three passes as a senior in 2014. Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, Olson's college coach Jim Harbaugh vouched for him to brother John Harbaugh. Another Jim Harbaugh player, Colin Kaepernick, remains a free agent. Olson is a camp arm who will be cut once Joe Flacco (back) gets healthy.

AzCardinals.com's Darren Urban believes John Brown "looks past his health concerns."

"He is blazing when he runs around out there," Urban observed. It's been a good offseason for Brown. He's declared himself healthy, literally lived with Carson Palmer and bulked up to 185 pounds. That's 12 pounds of muscle he didn't have last year. Brown has the talent to erase last season and pick up on his excellent 2015.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects a decision "imminently" in the league's Ezekiel Elliott investigation.

"Of course, I don’t know what that will be and wouldn’t want to have conjecture in any way involving that," Jones added. "There’s no domestic violence involved here." Rumors about a potentially lengthy suspension have been running rampant, but the reality is, most of the parties involved seem in the dark. Fantasy owners can only sit tight and wait.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports "those close" to Kirk Cousins viewed the Redskins' release of their supposed contract offer as "bush league and unnecessary."

It was. Per La Canfora, senior VP of player personnel Doug Williams tried to clear the air with Cousins at camp. "(What) I told him was, 'It ain't about 2016 and it ain't about 2018. It's about 2017,'" Williams said. "Just do what you've been doing and don't worry about what the media and everybody says." It's a nice gesture, but almost certainly too little, too late. Absent an unprecedented third franchise tag, Cousins seems poised to walk next offseason.

The Chargers are "cautiously optimistic" first-round WR Mike Williams can avoid surgery on his troublesome back.

"He's been responding well," GM Tom Telesco said Thursday. "The path, right now, is rehab and strengthening. That's good news, obviously." Williams has "responded positively" to a second epidural. Even with the good news, Williams remains without a timeline for a return. He's highly questionable for Week 1, and perhaps still the entire season.

Saints DE Hau'oli Kikaha (knee) is 100 percent for training camp.

Kikaha suffered his third career left ACL tear in 2016 OTAs. The No. 44 overall pick of the 2015 draft had a solid rookie season before last year's washout. Kikaha will enter 2017 as a reserve.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer still considers Cody Kessler the "man to beat" in the Browns' quarterback competition.

Reporter Mary Kay Cabot labels Kessler as the slightest of favorites. Speaking Thursday, coach Hue Jackson said second-rounder DeShone Kizer is ahead of schedule. The local media began rallying around Kizer's chances earlier this summer. Brock Osweiler is not a consideration.

Browns coach Hue Jackson said second-round QB DeShone Kizer is progressing faster than expected.

"He's understanding the offense," Jackson said. Reporter Mary Kay Cabot believes that if Kizer "continues at this clip," he will "soon be taking most of the first-team reps." Cabot still considers Cody Kessler a slight favorite for No. 1 duties. The Browns seem open to Kizer winning the starting job if he shows them the things they need to see this summer.

Bucs signed DE Justin Trattou.

The longtime reserve appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings last season, playing 10 snaps on defense.

Josh Doctson is going "all out" in training camp.

Doctson is finally free of restrictions after his mysterious, injury-marred rookie season. Doctson drew universally good reviews for Thursday's start of camp. There are targets there for the taking in Washington with both Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson out of the picture.

ESPN's David Newton reports the Panthers are peppering Christian McCaffrey with "short passes and screens" in practice.

After observing on Thursday, Newton reports it's "obvious" the Panthers have "big plans" for their first-round pick. Per Newton, McCaffrey is "so fast on his cuts that it leaves (defenders) grasping for air." McCaffrey is an exceptional runner, but it's become clear the Panthers view the passing game as the best way for him to make a rookie impact. It will be a big change for an offense that hasn't been big on screens or running back targets under Cam Newton.

Cardinals signed LB Philip Wheeler.

Wheeler appeared in all 19 games for the NFC Champion Falcons last season, notching 28 tackles. Now 32, Wheeler's job at this stage of his career is to take up space and provide snaps. He'll have to earn his way onto Arizona's 53-man roster.

Drew Brees fully intends to play out the final year of his contract this season.

"Honestly, my mind has not been there at all," Brees said of an extension. "It's really a non-issue. For me, it's all about this season and how good can we be this season." Per a clause in Brees' contract, he cannot be franchise tagged next offseason. Brees said earlier this year he could play until he's 45. He's leaving open the possibility that could be somewhere other than New Orleans.

Broncos signed RB Stevan Ridley to a one-year contract.

The Broncos needed a camp body with Devontae Booker (wrist) sidelined. Simply not the same player since tearing his ACL in 2014, Denver will be Ridley's fifth team since he wasn't re-signed by the Patriots. He won't make the 53-man roster.
Jul 27 - 5:00 PM

Cardinals released CB Jumal Rolle and LB Tevin Floyd with injury settlements.

Both players were dealing with hamstring injuries. Rolle missed all of 2016 with a torn Achilles'. He's appeared in nine regular season games since 2014.
