The Packers have no plans to release TE Andrew Quarless following his July 4 arrest.
Quarless allegedly fired a gun into the air twice during an early-Saturday morning altercation. He tried to flee and hide the weapon, but was arrested on a first-degree misdemeanor. The gun was registered to Quarless. The legal process will play itself out before the NFL steps in regarding a possible suspension.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) "could" miss training camp and the start of the season.
This is an extremely loose report, as the Giants are still "awaiting more medical info" after Pierre-Paul almost blew off his hand in a weekend fireworks incident. We'll continuously update this story with it being the only semi-headline-worthy news piece of the month. JPP's believed to have suffered nerve damage.
CBS' Jason La Canfora confirms the Cowboys appear to be on the verge of a long-term deal with unsigned franchise player Dez Bryant.
Per La Canfora, talks should "continue evolving and possibly conclude by midweek." There's more than enough smoke to suggest the sides will come to an agreement before their July 15 deadline.
Speaking to a church congregation on Sunday, Russell Wilson again refused to rule out the idea of playing baseball.
"Both" was Wilson's answer when asked which sport he preferred. "I believe if anybody could do it, I could," Wilson continued. "And I believe God’s put me — gave me the ability to do it. I’ve done it my whole life." Why Wilson keeps talking about his theoretical baseball career is anyone's guess, but it still stands to reason that he's trying to leverage the Seahawks in long-term talks. For as earnest and humble as Wilson presents himself, we doubt he actually has designs on becoming a two-sport athlete at the age of 26.
Ex-Titans and Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth admits he "(lost his) passion" for football when he signed his $100 million contract in 2009.
Haynesworth made the admission in a letter to his younger self on ThePlayersTribune.com. "If nothing else, listen to me on this, Albert: Do not leave the Tennessee Titans," Haynesworth wrote. "Your defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is a mastermind. No matter how much I tell you this, you’ll probably never realize it until your career is over, but it’s true. You’re like a system quarterback. You thrive in a very specific scheme." It's a humbling admission from a player who never formally retired, instead simply falling out of the league. Now 34, Haynesworth's last down came in 2011.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Giants pulled a long-term offer to unsigned franchise player Jason Pierre-Paul after he injured his hand in a weekend fireworks accident.
Per Rapsheet, the G-Men "do not believe a long-term offer is in the best interest of those involved at this point." JPP is expected to be okay, but the extent of the damage remains unclear. He appears to be dealing with nerve damage and burns. Pierre-Paul's franchise tag will earn him a cool $14.8 million this season.
Jason Pierre-Paul (hand) remains in a Miami hospital as of Monday morning.
It's been roughly 36 hours since Pierre-Paul's fireworks accident and he remains under medical care. That's certainly not a good sign. Although JPP did not lose any fingers, the belief is he sustained nerve damage and burns.
Jets G Dakota Dozier took most of his spring reps as a second-team center.
Dozier was a tackle at Furman who was moved to left guard as a rookie last year. Now he's being asked to expand his versatility again despite never playing a game at center in high school or college. Jets starting center Nick Mangold in under contract through 2017.
