Philip Rivers said one goal of the 2016 season is to get Antonio Gates at least eight touchdowns to break Tony Gonzalez's tight end touchdowns record.
Patriots signed TE Bear Pascoe and OG Jon Halapio.
Blocking tight end Pascoe appeared in three games for the Lions last season after spending much of his career with the Giants. Halapio was a sixth-round pick of the Patriots back in 2014. Both are roster long shots.
Jets placed RB Khiry Robinson (leg) on the active/PUP list.
Robinson is still working his way back from a broken leg, but should be considered day-to-day. When healthy, Robinson is expected to compete for some goal-line work. The Jets signed RB Bernard Pierce on Wednesday.
Jets waived RB Zac Stacy.
It comes with the "failed physical" designation with Stacy still working his way back from surgery to repair a broken ankle suffered last season. Replacing Stacy on the training camp roster is suspended RB Bernard Pierce.
Jaguars first-round CB Jalen Ramsey (knee) has been cleared for training camp.
He avoids the active/PUP list after suffering a torn meniscus at rookie camp earlier this offseason and then missing OTAs and minicamp. The Jaguars will be cautious, but look for Ramsey to see plenty of practices reps this summer.
Chiefs placed RB Jamaal Charles (knee) on the active/PUP list.
Coach Andy Reid hinted at this last month, saying he wasn't sure if Charles would be cleared for the start of camp. Charles is roughly nine months removed from tearing his ACL, but the Chiefs have no reason to push him as a nine-year veteran. Consider him day-to-day and don't expect to see much of Charles in the preseason. Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware will see plenty of reps.
Brandon Marshall reported to Jets training camp at 224 pounds.
That's 10 pounds lighter than his normal playing weight. The Jets wanted Marshall to get under 230 and play lighter this season. Still in tip-top shape at 32 years old, Marshall is a strong WR1 with the hopes Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs.
Jets signed RB Bernard Pierce.
Pierce is suspended for the first two weeks of the season, but is eligible to participate in training camp and the preseason. The Jets are already pretty deep at running back with Matt Forte, Bilal Powell, and Khiry Robinson.
