Ryan Broyles (Achilles') is participating in Lions offseason workouts.

Broyles has torn both of his ACLs and his Achilles' tendon through just two seasons in the NFL. He indicated that he's feeling some pressure for his roster spot. "You feel like you have a deadline because there's guys counting on you," said Broyles. "I feel like I have to go in there and prove something and maybe I did that a little bit before my body was ready (last year)." The Lions won't be counting on Broyles for a major 2014 role, though those plans could change with a productive offseason. He's proven to be an amazingly quick healer.

Cecil Shorts is not yet fully recovered from his December sports hernia surgery.

Shorts is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and expects to be 100 percent shortly. "I’m on the right path where I’m able to run without any pain," he said. "I still have some work to do and I’m not 100 percent yet, but I’m looking to get there soon. Now, I have to get my strength back and confidence back." Still only 26 years old, Shorts returns as Jacksonville's clear-cut No. 1 receiver with Justin Blackmon continuing to serve an indefinite suspension.

Former Kansas State QB Collin Klein has signed a two-year contract with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

Klein, 24, was invited to Texans rookie camp last year, but failed to earn a contract and didn't resurface in an NFL training camp. As CFL contracts are binding, Klein will have to wait two years if he hopes for another NFL shot.

The 2014 NFL season will open on Thursday, September 4 with the Packers at the Seahawks.

The defending Super Bowl champs host Aaron Rodgers and the team they beat on the famous "Fail Mary" play from 2012. NBC's Sunday Night Football opener is equally as intriguing as Andrew Luck travels to Denver to face Peyton Manning and the Broncos. The opening Monday Night will be a doubleheader: Giants at Lions and Chargers at Cardinals. Other highlights include a Seahawks/Broncos Super Bowl rematch in Week 3 and Seahawks/49ers on Thanksgiving night.

Patriots exercised LT Nate Solder's fifth-year club option for 2015.

Solder, the 17th overall pick out of Colorado in the 2011 draft, has started 44 of a possible 48 regular-season games since entering the league and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 left tackle in 2013. He excels both in pass protection and as a run blocker. Solder will earn a little over $7 million in 2015.

Clemson T/G Brandon Thomas underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL on Wednesday.

Thomas was a potential first-round sleeper before going down in a pre-draft workout for the Saints earlier this month. Now, he's not expected to be taken before the third round. Thomas will open the season on the PUP list and could be back for the stretch run. It's possible he'll "redshirt" as a rookie on I.R.

Rams re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Justin Veltung to a one-year, $495,000 contract.

Veltung was promoted from the practice squad in December and handled returns while Tavon Austin was sidelined. He faces long odds to make the roster.

Panthers re-signed exclusive rights free agent OG Chris Scott to a one-year, $570,000 contract.

Scott appeared in ten games for the Panthers last season, making eight starts. He's had weight problems as recently as last summer when he reported to the Bills at 360 pounds. Jobs on the Carolina offensive line are open to competition.

Seahawks CB Marcus Trufant has retired from the NFL after 11 seasons.

Trufant, 33, will sign a one-day contract with Seattle on Thursday to retire as a member of the team. The former No. 11 overall pick out of Washington State spent his entire career with the Seahawks before inking a one-year deal with the Jaguars last offseason and getting released at final cuts. He spent the 2013 season on the street. Trufant started 125 games in his career, making 644 tackles, deflecting 102 passes and picking off 21 others.

The Seahawks are leaning toward declining LG James Carpenter's club option for 2015.

Carpenter was the 25th pick in the 2011 draft and has missed 16 career games due to injuries. He did start the NFC Championship game and Super Bowl at left guard last season and appeared in all 19 games but was a liability both as a run blocker and pass protector. Carpenter's roster spot could even be in jeopardy.

Bucs TE Luke Stocker is not participating in voluntary workouts this week due to an undisclosed ailment.

Stocker went on injured reserve with a hip injury in late September, but it's unclear if the two situations are related. "That's hurting guys like him," said coach Lovie Smith about Stocker not taking part this week. The fourth-year tight end has just one year left on his rookie deal and won't be handed anything.
Apr 23 - 5:02 PM

Cowboys signed QB Caleb Hanie to a one-year contract.

Hanie, 28, hasn't appeared in a game since compiling an 0-4 record for the Bears in 2011, completing just 50 percent of his passes for 613 yards, three touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He's merely a camp arm for Dallas. The move is another sign the Cowboys don't expect Kyle Orton back.
Apr 23 - 4:44 PM

Mikel Leshoure is skipping voluntary workouts this week.

Leshoure is one of four players not in attendance, including Ndamukong Suh, CB Chris Houston (toe), and WR Carlin Isles (rugby). Leshoure likely wants out of Detroit, as he's no higher than the No. 3 running back and might even be No. 4. GM Martin Mayhew has already stated he doesn't want to deal Leshoure.

Coach Bruce Arians expects DB Tyrann Mathieu (knee) to begin training camp on the PUP list.

"I think Ty is going to up to the wire," Arians said. "I still anticipate him on PUP, but he refuses to believe it. That's a good thing." Mathieu had never even heard of the PUP list before Wednesday. The kid is relentless and is aiming to take the field for day one of training camp. We can't see it happening, however. Being ready for the season opener is much more realistic.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline reports the Patriots are "incredibly high" on Pittsburgh QB Tom Savage.

Some in the New England organization are now referring to Savage as "Tom #2," with Tom Brady being "Tom #1" of course. Savage has been generating a ton of buzz in recent weeks and has even had to turn down workout requests due to a jam-packed schedule. He has a rifle for an arm but accuracy flaws. Savage may need to sit for a couple years. Ryan Mallett can be a free agent next March.
