Ttians.com’s Jim Wyatt confirms LG Quinton Spain is the frontrunner to start.

Spain didn’t do anything at OTAs to lose his job. He’ll enter training camp with the first team, but needs to hold off Jeremiah Poutasi and sixth-rounder Sebastian Tretola.

Browns third-round DL Carl Nassib (undisclosed) has been sidelined since minicamp.

He’s expected to be ready for training camp. Nassib was the last of Cleveland’s picks to sign. He should open this season in the defensive line rotation.

Bears claimed QB Connor Shaw off waivers from the Browns.

Shaw was waived by Cleveland on Thursday. The Saints and Seahawks also put in claims for Shaw but the Bears had a higher priority. The 24-year-old started one game for Cleveland in 2014, completing 14-of-28 passes for 177 yards and an interception against Baltimore in Week 17. He spent all of 2015 on injured reserve after breaking his thumb in a preseason game. Shaw has an outside shot to make the team as the No. 3 quarterback behind starter Jay Cutler and backup Brian Hoyer.

NFL suspended Ravens TE Darren Waller four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Waller is allowed to participate in all preseason games and practices. If Waller doesn't appeal the suspension, he'll be eligible to return October 9 against Washington. It's worth noting that Waller was suspended twice in college for violating team rules. This won't help Waller's already-slim hopes of landing a spot on the Ravens' 53-man roster.

Buccaneers contract-year DT Akeem Spence wants to stay in Tampa Bay beyond this season.

"I would love to stay in Tampa," said Spence. "I have been here helping to build this thing and definitely want to see this thing through all the way." Spence also said he's excited to be working with new DC Mike Smith while adding that his confidence is "through the roof" heading into the last year of his rookie deal. The 24-year-old was limited to eight games last season while battling back and ankle injuries. He was also suspended a game for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Richard Rodgers said he put an emphasis on improving his "all-around" game this offseason.

Rodgers finished fifth among tight ends in touchdowns last season but his role is a bit uncertain heading into 2016. The Packers will likely use some two tight-end sets with Cook and Rodgers, but it's up to Rodgers to round out his game by improving his shoddy run-blocking and sloppy route-running. Rodgers remains a boom-or-bust TE2 for fantasy purposes.

The Dallas Police Department has released the full incident report from the night of Aqib Talib's shooting.

The report didn't uncover much new information. One gram of marijuana was found at the scene, though no drug charges were filed. Rumors circulated last month that Talib may have shot himself but there was no mention of that in the police report. One witness told police that a single gunshot was fired. Talib missed OTAs while recovering from the gunshot wound in his right leg and it's unclear if he'll be ready for training camp later this month.

CSN Mid-Atlantic expects first-rounder Josh Doctson to flirt with six touchdowns as a rookie.

Beat writers Rich Tandler and Tarik El-Bashit both predicted around a "half dozen" touchdowns for Doctson in year one. Tandler doesn't believe Doctson will be much of a factor outside of the red zone, however, predicting he catches fewer than 35 passes. Reality is Doctson will probably need an injury if he's going to play regular snaps. 2017 figures to be Doctson's big leap.

Free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson requested a public defender in his domestic assault case because he said he has no money.

A public defender is normally free of charge, but can cost up to $100. Jackson has earned over $12 million in his 10-year playing career. He says all of it is gone except for his car that's valued around $100K. NFL players blowing their money and being forced to hang around for a paycheck is far too common.

Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' website expects Ryan Russell to open the season as Dallas' starting left end.

Broaddus admits it's a "gut" feeling right now, but the Cowboys are going to have to patch something together with both starting DEs Demarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory suspended the first four weeks of the season. Russell played in just one game last season as a fifth-round rookie. Benson Mayowa is expected to start at right end, with rookie Charles Tapper also in the mix.

Ravens OC Marc Trestman said he wants to run the ball more this season.

"We're always looking at ourselves as a team that should be able to run the ball first," Trestman said. Only the Lions passed the ball more than the Ravens last season, and Trestman's offenses in Chicago from 2013-2014 were also bottom-10 in rushing play percentage. Trestman may say he wants to run the ball, but history suggests his 2016 Ravens offense will again be pass-happy.

Updating a previous item, ex-NBA player Nate Robinson is actually trying to make it to the NFL as a receiver.

It's at the advice of Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. Robinson participated in Seattle's minicamp last month on a tryout basis as a defensive back, but apparently wasn't hacking it as a defensive player. Robinson is working with WRs coach Dwayne Frampton, who has coached up Odell Beckahm and DeSean Jackson in past offseasons. Robinson (5'9/180) is waiting for his next opportunity.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins "remain hopeful" OL Jermon Bushrod will "become a factor" at right guard.

Billy Turner gobbled up the first-team reps during the offseason, but the Dolphins want converted-tackle Bushrod to win the job in camp. Bushrod was held out of spring practices as he recovered from shoulder surgery. Barring an August face-plant, Bushrod should beat out Turner, who was a major liability in 2015.

Ex-Cowboys and 49ers special teamer C.J. Spillman has been convicted of sexual assault.

Spillman spent six years in the league before being charged last summer. He faces 2-20 years in prison. His NFL career is over.
