Isaiah Crowell said his agent Drew Rosenhaus has been in "heavy communication" with the Browns about a contract extension.

Coming off a breakout 2016 campaign, Crowell will earn $2.746 million in the final year of his rookie deal. While Crowell is unsure where the two sides stand in negotiations, the 24-year-old is hoping to remain in Cleveland beyond this season. "This is where I want to be," said Crowell. "I am comfortable with my teammates, love my teammates, love my coaches and just love the city of Cleveland." Even with Duke Johnson spelling him on passing downs, Crowell has put himself firmly in the RB2 conversation.

NFL Network's Mike Silver reports the Falcons are negotiating a five-year extension with Devonta Freeman that would make Freeman "one of the NFL's highest-paid backs."

Freeman took out a $50,000 insurance policy on himself which would pay him $10 million should the Falcons and Freeman not strike a long-term deal and Freeman suffer a severe 2017 injury. Freeman is owed just $1.8 million this year and turned 25 in the offseason. LeSean McCoy currently has the NFL's richest multi-year running back deal at $40 million over five years.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL will not issue an update on discipline for Ezekiel Elliott before next Monday.

The NFL remains undecided on how long to suspend Elliott as it continues its investigations into his two assault accusations, the first of domestic variety and the second involving a nightclub brawl where Zeke was alleged to have broken a man's nose. It's disappointing we will continue to lack clarity on Elliott's availability, especially after owner Jerry Jones stated a decision from the NFL was "imminent" on Thursday.

Browns waived RB George Atkinson III.

The Browns gave his roster spot to former Jet Brandon Wilds. Atkinson III recorded 34 yards and a touchdown on seven carries over 22 offensive snaps last season. He should resurface as a special teamer.

Browns signed RB Brandon Wilds.

The Browns cleared a roster spot for him by dumping George Atkinson III. Wilds totaled 27 yards on 10 carries for the Jets as an undrafted rookie last year. The 24-year-old is just a camp body.

Jeremy Langford suffered a sprained ankle at Thursday's walkthrough.

He was held out of practice on Friday. It's the same ankle that Langford injured last season, which resulted in a four-week absence. This injury is thought to be minor, however. With Jordan Howard entrenched as the workhorse and Benny Cunningham and Tarik Cohen serving as backups, Langford will be fighting for his job this summer.

Bears OLB Pernell McPhee (PUP) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday.

The Bears are calling it a cleanup procedure. The injury was discovered during McPhee's physical earlier this week. The Bears have yet to establish a timetable for his return, though knee scopes typically take between 2-4 weeks to recover from. McPhee suffered an injury to his other knee last season, causing him to miss seven games.

John Brown may miss up to a week with a quad injury.

He's day to day at this point, but it's a disappointing development after Brown shined throughout the spring and on the first few days of Cardinals camp. Entering his contract year after an illness-ruined 2016, Brown has battled persistent soft-tissue injuries since entering the pros. The Cardinals need to exercise utmost caution while working Brown back into practice.

ESPN Bucs reporter Jenna Laine confirms the team is hoping Jacquizz Rodgers "can step in for Doug Martin these first three games."

Rodgers has mixed in with the first-team offense early in training camp. As Martin is suspended for Weeks 1-3, Rodgers is set up to start against Miami, Chicago, and Minnesota, all defenses that ranked in the bottom half of Football Outsiders' run-defense DVOA last year. Rodgers averaged well over 20 touches per game across five starts in 2016. Quizz is a very attractive fantasy pick at his double-digit-round Average Draft Position.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Raiders LT Donald Penn is unhappy with his contract and will not report to training camp.

Entering the last year of a two-year contract, the 34-year-old is due $5.8 million in 2017. There were no rumblings of Penn considering a holdout before Friday, so his absence comes as a mild surprise. Penn remained one of the better blind side protectors in football last season, earning PFF's No. 10 grade out of 76 qualifiers at tackle.

Rams DT Aaron Donald has yet to arrive at training camp.

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Rams players were due at camp by 11 AM PST for their conditioning tests, but so far Donald has been a no-show. It's no surprise as Donald has been hinting at a holdout for weeks in hopes of a new contract. The two-time All-Pro surely deserves a raise but the Rams may be hesitant to give him one with two years left on his rookie deal.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Dolphins are expected to let contract-year WR Jarvis Landry play out the final season of his deal.

The writing has been on the wall for this. Owner Stephen Ross and coach Adam Gase have both strongly indicated extending Landry's deal was never a priority, and the Dolphins' run-game emphasis lessens Landry's tactical value as a volume-dependent slot receiver Miami's higher-ups likely view as replaceable. The Fins want to use their high-volume run game to set up more vertical shots to speedsters Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker on the perimeter. The Dolphins may revisit talks with Landry after the season, but they clearly do not value him as a true No. 1 receiver. The Fins never so much as made Landry a contract offer this offseason.

49ers signed first-round DL Solomon Thomas to a four-year contract.

It comes with a fifth-year team option. The No. 3 overall pick in April's draft, Thomas is expected to spend most of his rookie campaign rushing from the interior in a three-technique stance next to NT Earl Mitchell.

Ravens QB Ryan Mallett was "intercepted at least five times" in Friday's practice, then lost his cool on the field.

Per ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley, Mallett "looked awful" filling in for Joe Flacco (back). Hensley observed two other throws that were nearly picked off, and on his final interception, Mallett "threw his white towel in the air," prompting Terrell Suggs to say, "tell (OC Marty Mornhinweg) to tell Mallett to throw to the guys wearing the purple jerseys (on offense)." The Ravens have been considering signing free agent Colin Kaepernick.

Browns second-round QB DeShone Kizer went to California to train with quarterback guru Tom House this offseason.

He was joined by teammate Cody Kessler. It seems half the league's quarterbacks train with House nowadays but the early results at camp suggest Kizer's stint in California was well worth it. Coach Hue Jackson acknowledged the rookie's rapid improvement while teammate Brock Osweiler was blown away by his mastery of the playbook. Kessler may still be in the driver seat for Week 1, but Kizer isn't going down without a fight.
