Titans CB Jason McCourty called rookie WR Dorial Green-Beckham "a beast."

"There’s certain things you can’t teach," McCourty continued, "and you can’t teach a guy to be that big, and to be physical." DGB is an imposing figure at 6'5/237 pounds, but he is a rough around the edges prospect who has yet to earn a spot with the first-team offense. With only Harry Douglas and Hakeem Nicks to beat out, Green-Beckham should earn a starting role at some point this season. He is a decent late-round flier.

The Philadelphia Daily News said there is a "good chance" Brent Celek leads the Eagles' tight ends in snaps this year.

Just as he has every year since 2009. Chip Kelly reportedly loves Celek, and he offers the Eagles more in the running game than Zach Ertz. Recovering from groin surgery, Ertz may not even suit up early in the season, and when he finally gets back on the field it will again be in a backup role to Celek. Ertz is nothing more than a TE2 flier at this point.

According to Pewter Report, free agent CB Tim Jennings received a contract offer from the Buccaneers.

Jennings left his meeting with the Bucs on Tuesday without signing a deal, but Tampa Bay reportedly made an offer. Jennings has a history with both coach Lovie Smith and DC Leslie Frazier, making a deal more likely than not. Jennings has yet to take any other visits.

The NFL is not expected to seek an injunction which would keep Tom Brady off the field during the appeal of Thursday's decision.

The NFL will almost certainly appeal the decision to vacate Brady's four-game ban, but they do not have to seek an injunction which would keep Brady off the field. Brady will be under center in the season opener, and barring injury should be the starter all season. He is now a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Cowboys DE Greg Hardy is considering an appeal of his four-game suspension in the wake of Tom Brady's appeal win.

Hardy saw his 10-game suspension reduced to four games in July, but he still feels hard done after being forced to sit out all but one game last year. Brady's win in federal court could give Hardy the confidence to seek out a similar result. If Hardy can earn a stay, the Cowboys' defensive line will be a position of strength entering the season.

U.S. District Judge Richard Berman nullified Tom Brady's four-game suspension.

The NFL will likely appeal the decision, but Brady will be under center for the Patriots' opener on September 10. Most reports suggested Brady's team had the stronger case, and the NFL's decision not to pursue a settlement when Brady was reportedly open to one earlier this week is yet another puzzling decision from the NFL office. Brady should now be considered a top-five fantasy option and a solid DFS play in his tasty Week 1 matchup against the Steelers.

Cardinals ILB Sean Weatherspoon is expected to play in the fourth preseason game.

It will be Weatherspoon's debut with the Cardinals and first game action since Week 15 of 2013. A standout when healthy, Arizona needs Weatherspoon to be a rock in their otherwise underwhelming linebacking corps. Weatherspoon has played all 16 games just once in his five-year career.

Redskins rookie WR Jamison Crowder will not face league discipline for a June domestic violence accusation.

Crowder was accused of domestic violence through his Instagram account on June 4. He was never formally accused of any crime, and the NFL's investigation has apparently found nothing to suggest Crowder violated the personal conduct policy. Crowder will open the season as a special teams contributor.

The Eagles want to get RB Darren Sproles more involved in the offense.

"We'd like to get him the ball steadily and consistently, and he certainly is a unique, outstanding player," Eagles OC Pat Shurmur said before the preseason. "We just need to make sure we get him the ball, and we have a plan to do that." That plan could involve Sproles lining up more as a receiver, something the Eagles worked on in camp. Sproles averaged just six offensive touches a game over the second half of 2014. Even if he sees a slight bump in usage, he is unlikely to be a consistent fantasy option in standard formats.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said it "sounds like" the Titans will retain LG Andy Levitre.

Set to count $8.6 million against this year's cap, Levitre looked like a sure-fire cut after he lost his starting job to Byron Bell. The Titans do not have much veteran depth on their interior line, however, and they have the cap room to carry Levitre for another season. Tennessee could save $2.3 million by cutting Levitre.

CSN New England's Tom E. Curran said James White could be the "odd man out" in the Patriots' third-down running back battle.

White was drafted as the heir apparent to Shane Vereen last season, but he has struggled to make an impact in both of his NFL preseasons. Travaris Cadet shined in the offseason program, but he has missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury. Brandon Bolden is the most tenured and versatile of the four competing, and Dion Lewis has been the most impressive this preseason. At least one of those four will not make the team, and there is a chance it is White.

The Charlotte Observer believes WR Corey Brown could be on the roster bubble.

Brown was expected to open the season in the starting lineup following the season-ending injury to Kelvin Benjamin (ACL), but he has struggled mightily with drops both in games and in practice over the last several weeks. Brown has at least five drops in the last two preseason games, including two would-be touchdowns. If he cannot show the drops are behind him in the final preseason game, he could find himself off the final roster.

The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett said TEs Joseph Fauria and Tim Wright are competing for "probably only one spot."

Wright would seem to have the edge as the Lions traded for him just three days ago, but all Wright cost was a kicker who was unlikely to make the final roster anyway. Wright has floundered in both New England and Tampa Bay following a breakout rookie campaign, and Fauria offers the Lions a red-zone threat they are missing at the back end of their receiver corps. This competition could go down the wire, and both tight ends may end up on the final roster.

A neurologist is expected to examine Robert Griffin III (concussion) on Thursday or Friday.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim speculates Washington could decide to release Griffin if he is cleared. Griffin's $16.155 million fifth-year option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning Griffin has to pass a physical before the Redskins can release him. Given his injury history, even allowing Griffin to practice with the team the next year risks an injury which could leave Washington on the hook for his entire 2016 salary.

Browns WR Terrelle Pryor is expected to play in the team's fourth preseason game.

It will be Pryor's first NFL game action as a wide receiver. A good showing could earn him a spot on the final roster, though the Browns may decide to keep Pryor on the roster based on physical upside alone. With Josh Gordon suspended, Pryor has the most interesting athletic profile in the Browns' receiver corps.
