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.

Raiders placed RB Roy Helu (hips) on the active/PUP list.

Helu is still working his way back from a pair of surgeries on both of his hips. He needs to get healthy quickly, as he's already considered to be on the roster bubble. Helu is still just 27, but his light is fading fast.
Jul 25 - 6:17 PM

Saints placed CB Keenan Lewis (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Lewis is recovering from a number of issues, including knee surgery, hip surgery, and a sports-hernia operation. The Saints will bring him along slowly, so consider him more day-to-day. Lewis turned 30 earlier this offseason and is coming off a 2015 season where he played just 109 snaps across six games.

Saints placed DE Hau'oli Kikaha (knee) on the active/PUP list.

Kikaha tore his left ACL last month and is expected to miss the entire season. Last year's No. 44 overall pick could open the year on reserve/PUP and spent the whole season there. Kikaha has torn his ACL three times now.

LeGarrette Blount (hip) avoided the Patriots' active/PUP list to begin camp.

It's a great sign after Blount missed all spring practices, then ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reported Blount's roster spot wasn't secure. If Blount is healthy and in good shape -- he is both of those things right now -- he will return as the heavy favorite to handle big-back carries in the Patriots' high-scoring offense. New England may lean on Blount more than usual during Tom Brady's four-game ban. The Pats play the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans, and Bills in that window.
Jul 25 - 6:04 PM

Patriots placed WR Danny Amendola (knee, ankle) on the active/PUP list.

After undergoing ankle and knee surgeries in the offseason, Amendola was held out of all offseason workouts, though he was seen moving around "well" at Tom Brady's charity softball event in early June. The Boston Herald has reported Amendola is questionable for Week 1. Following the additions of Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell, Amendola will face an uncertain role upon his return.
Jul 25 - 6:01 PM

Patriots placed WR Julian Edelman (foot surgeries) on the active/PUP list.

He has not been medically cleared to practice, and we suspect Edelman will not practice at all until the later stages of camp. He will probably be held out of most of the preseason, if not all of it. Edelman has undergone two foot surgeries since last November. He is tentatively expected to play in Week 1.
Jul 25 - 5:58 PM

Patriots placed RB Dion Lewis (ACL) and Julian Edelman (foot surgeries) on the active/PUP list.

This doesn't hint where either player is in their respective recoveries, though it is a small surprise Lewis hasn't been cleared for training camp. Lewis did participate at June minicamp, practicing without a brace on his surgically repaired knee. We suspect he'll be activated onto the 90-man roster within a few weeks, if not sooner. Edelman's recovery is going to be more complex.
Jul 25 - 5:55 PM

Packers placed TE Jared Cook (foot surgery) on the active/PUP list.

Cook recently told a newspaper he was 100 percent recovered from an early-June operation on his foot, but that never seemed likely, and he will not practice at the start of Packers camp. Cook can still be activated at any time. He needs to get on the field to beat out Richard Rodgers for tight end snaps.
Jul 25 - 5:53 PM

Packers placed WR Ty Montgomery (ankle surgery) on the active/PUP list.

He hasn't been cleared for the start of training camp. A third-round pick last year, Montgomery's rookie season was largely washed out by a severe high ankle sprain. He finished with 136 yards and two touchdowns on 15 receptions. Missing practice will put Montgomery behind in the Packers' third receiver battle.
Jul 25 - 5:51 PM

Packers placed WR Jordy Nelson (ACL) on the active/PUP list.

Jared Cook (foot surgery) and Ty Montgomery (ankle surgery) also showed up on the list. It means Nelson hasn't yet been cleared to practice, a mild surprise since all offseason reports regarding his recovery have been glowing. Nelson can still be activated at any time, and it's conceivable he only spends a few days on active/PUP. At age 31 coming off an ACL tear, Nelson's health will continue to be a situation to monitor throughout Packers training camp.
Jul 25 - 5:44 PM

The Bengals released S Taylor Mays over the weekend after they discovered he is facing an additional four-game suspension.

It's "additional" because Mays was already suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season. He's now suspended for eight games. Mays' bans all stem from violations of the league's substance abuse policy. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bengals have not ruled out re-signing Mays once the bans are up.
Jul 25 - 4:45 PM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports suspended WR Josh Gordon remains "on thin ice" with the Browns' coaching staff despite Monday's conditional reinstatement scheduled for Week 5.

Coach Hue Jackson has said Gordon will be given "no latitude" as he attempts to show that he's all-in on resuming his career, while Cole notes that other members of the organization have grown "weary" of Gordon's past decision making. The new Browns regime did invest five draft picks into pass catchers -- including four wide receivers -- and will presumably want to give them a long look. Gordon has more ability than all five, of course. He also resurfaced in a video with Johnny Manziel on TMZ earlier Monday. Gordon and Manziel were hanging out with puppies and playing video games.
Jul 25 - 4:41 PM

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim does not view seventh-round pick Keith Marshall as a threat to Matt Jones' workload this season.

A size-speed specimen who spent most of his college career injured, Marshall went back on the shelf this spring after running behind someone named "Mack Brown" at rookie camp. Marshall is talented enough to make up ground quickly in August, but he hasn't given any reason to buy into him as an NFL player just yet.
