Packers coach Mike McCarthy said there are no long-term concerns about Jordy Nelson's (active/PUP) knee.

Nelson was somewhat surprisingly placed on the active/PUP list to start camp, but it sounds like the Packers are just being cautious. Nelson can be removed from the list at any time. Almost a full year removed from tearing his ACL, Nelson's stay on the PUP list should be fairly short.

Ex-Bears DL Corey Wootton announced his retirement after six seasons in the NFL.

A fourth-round pick of the Bears in 2010, Wootton finished his career on the Lions' injured reserve after tearing his pectoral last preseason. Wootton's best season came in 2012, where he recorded seven sacks and two forced fumbles across 16 appearances for Chicago. He finishes his career with 12 sacks and 87 tackles. Wootton is only 29.

Speaking on PFT Live, ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi said the Browns' quarterback battle is "not an open competition."

Grossi said Robert Griffin III will get four out of five reps with the first-team offense. Coach Hue Jackson has refused to name Griffin the starter heading into camp, but it appears the job is all but sewn up. If third-rounder Cody Kessler shows well enough to earn the backup job, the Browns could decide to trade Josh McCown during camp.

The Jaguars scored just 35 first-quarter points in 2015.

The mark was the second worst in the league. Despite the struggles early, the Jaguars managed to finish 14th in total scoring on the back of 26 second-half offensive touchdowns. 23 of those touchdowns came through the air, which represented almost two-thirds of Blake Bortles' scoring output last season. An improved defense should help Jacksonville stay in games, but they need to start faster on offense. An improved running game could help in that endeavour.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker believes second-round CB Xavien Howard has the "inside track" for the No. 2 job.

Byron Maxwell will start at one corner spot, but the other starting job is up for grabs. Howard would seem to be the favorite after Miami traded up to land him in the draft, but he split reps with sophomore Tony Lippett during the offseason program. Even so, it would be a surprise if the rookie did not win the job.

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher reports Jamaal Charles' workload will not be limited "if he's healthy and he's the same player he was before the knee injury."

This is music to the ears of Charles truthers, but Teicher did add a big caveat. Charles will be 30 in December and is coming off his second knee surgery in the last four years. He also has company in the backfield after Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West combined for 1,256 total yards and 11 scores last season. Charles will still clearly be the lead back if healthy, but he should lose touches to Ware and perhaps even West regardless of health.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

TMZ Sports reports Tre Mason's family is concerned about his mental health and personal safety.

Mason has been involved with the police on five separate occasions over the past four months. The most recent incident occurred on Saturday when multiple units were called to Mason's home in the middle of the afternoon. Mason was not arrested, but it has become clear he is struggling. Hopefully he can get the help he needs. Rams coach Jeff Fisher has already conceded there is a good chance Mason is "not going to be" with the team in the near future.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco said he is not sure if No. 3 overall pick Joey Bosa will report to training camp on time.

"I don’t know," Telesco said. "We’re still working on it. Hopefully we’ll get something done, but I don’t know." Bosa and the Chargers are quibbling over offset language and the structure of the bonus money in his rookie contract. One of just three first-rounders who remain unsigned, this situation should be resolved early in camp at the latest. Bosa is expected to hold down the end spot opposite Corey Liuget as a rookie.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press' Charley Walters believes this season "probably will be the last in Minnesota" for Adrian Peterson.

Walters cites Peterson's rising wages -- he is owed a $6 million roster bonus along with an $11.75 million base salary in 2017 -- as the main reason he will be shown the door. It is unlikely the Vikings pay Peterson that much money in his age-32 season, but that is not the only option. The Vikings could offer Peterson an extension which gives him some security down the line in exchange for a lower salary next year, and he will likely be willing to negotiate knowing he will not get close to $18 million on the open market. Still, it is not a given Peterson returns to Minnesota next season, making Jerick McKinnon a great hold in Dynasty formats.

According to the Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe, C.J. Anderson "has the potential" to be a "1,500-yard back."

The Gary Kubiak Effect. Kubiak has long championed featuring his running backs and making them the focal point of his offenses. With Peyton Manning now out of the picture, Kubiak is expected to revert to that style of play in 2016. Totaling 1,500 yards should be within reach for Anderson as long as he can stay healthy and get off to a fast start. Arian Foster rushed for 1,200-plus yards and tallied 1,500-plus three times under Kubiak in Houston, and Justin Forsett totaled 1,529 in 2014 in Kubiak's lone season with Baltimore. Anderson remains one of the better picks at his current fourth-round ADP.

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the "sense" is the 49ers want to keep retired RT Anthony Davis after he applied for reinstatement Monday.

That would be smart of GM Trent Baalke. Last year's right tackle, Erik Pears, was one of the worst in the sport, and Davis has proven to be one of the top right tackles when on the field. It's anybody's guess what kind of shape Davis is in at the moment -- he was reportedly "badly out of shape" earlier this offseason -- but he's still just 27 (in October). He'd be a big upgrade to the 49ers' line.

The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer believes 2015 first-round WR Phillip Dorsett is in line for a "breakout season."

With Andre Johnson and Coby Fleener gone, the Colts are shifting to more of a three-wide offense after employing a ton of two-tight end sets with Fleener and Dwayne Allen in years past. Dorsett is taking over as the No. 3 receiver behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Dorsett missed five games as a rookie due to a broken fibula and played the final three games with Matt Hasselbeck, Josh Freeman, and Ryan Lindley. With a MyFantasyLeague.com ADP of 151 overall, Dorsett is an excellent late-round flier. He'll be close to a full-time player in an offense that lost a ton of targets from 2015 and gets Andrew Luck back healthy.

Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official website singled out third-year LE DaQuan Jones as someone who has a chance to take a "giant step" forward this season.

The 112th pick in the 2014 draft, Jones started all 16 games at left end in the Titans' 3-4 base defense last season and received really strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run defense. Per Wyatt, Jones "should be a force to be reckoned with" and was "especially impressive" during the spring. With RE Jurell Casey drawing all the attention, Jones will see a ton of one-on-ones.

Browns head of football operations Sashi Brown indicated in a Monday statement that suspended WR Josh Gordon will be given another chance in Cleveland.

"With the league's decision to afford Josh the opportunity to resume his career, he will be with us for the start of training camp,'' Brown said. "At that time, we will discuss directly with Josh the direction of our team, our expectations of our players and a plan to support him on and off the field." Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported earlier this afternoon that Gordon remains on "thin ice" with the organization, but Brown's words suggest the formerly-troubled 25-year-old will stick with the team through training camp.

Cowboys signed OT Cameron Bradfield.

Bradfield, 29 in September, has been out of the league since making two starts for the Jaguars back in 2014. He has 41 career games and 27 starts under his belt and will compete with Charles Brown, Chaz Green, and others for a backup job.
