Rams signed QB Dan Orlovsky to a one-year contract.

Jul 20 - 4:52 PM

Panthers released/failed physical OT Michael Oher.

Jul 20 - 4:50 PM

Cardinals re-signed RB Chris Johnson to a one-year contract.

It's the best possible outcome for the former 2,000-yard rusher, who turns 32 in September. Johnson has found a nice niche as a Bruce Arians reserve, but was limited to four games by a groin injury last season. His explosion is long gone, but Johnson can still follow blocks and go station to station. The Cardinals' official website expects him to remain the No. 2 behind David Johnson. A committee would emerge were DJ to go down with injury, limiting Johnson's appeal as a handcuff.

Cowboys re-signed LB Justin Durant.

CB Jeremiah McKinnon was cut in a corresponding roster move. Durant has spent three of the past four years in Dallas, with the exception being 2015 in Atlanta. He played 279 largely forgettable snaps last season, and won't be assured of cracking the 53-man roster.

Panthers signed RG Trai Turner to a four-year, $45 million extension through 2021.

The deal includes $20.5 million guaranteed, and makes Turner a top-three guard in terms of average annual salary. Interim GM Marty Hurney immediately got to work on what had been one of ex-GM Dave Gettleman's goals. The No. 92 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Turner has turned in back-to-back Pro Bowl campaigns, though Pro Football Focus charted him as having a down 2016. He dealt with both knee and ankle injuries last season. Turner turned 24 in June.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim reports Brian Quick "didn't look great" during the offseason program.

Keim thinks Quick needs a "strong camp" to keep his roster spot, an opinion shared by CSN Mid-Atlantic. It certainly looks like Quick is on the outside looking in at this point. Terrelle Pryor, Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson, and Ryan Grant are the top four receivers on the depth chart.

49ers third-round sophomore CB Will Redmond will compete for the nickel cornerback job.

Redmond sat out his entire rookie season recovering from a torn ACL, but he is healthy now. K'Waun Williams looks like the favorite for the nickel job, but Redmond should get his shot in training camp. Rashard Robinson, Dontae Johnson, and third-round rookie Ahkello Witherspoon are expected to compete for starting jobs on the outside.

Packers RBs coach Ben Sirmans said fourth-round RB Jamaal Williams will open camp as the No. 2 running back.

With former receiver Ty Montgomery atop the depth chart, the No. 2 job in Green Bay could end up being a valuable fantasy asset. Williams will get the nod entering camp, but Sirmans made it clear everyone will get their shot. "The biggest thing is just competition," Sirmans said. "With so many different guys, somebody is going to have to rise to the top." Aside from Williams, fifth-rounder Aaron Jones is the best bet to earn the No. 2 job.

The Chicago Tribune's Dan Wiederer believes Bears CB Kyle Fuller "may be on the outside looking in" for a roster spot.

Fuller missed all of 2016 with a knee injury, but DC Vic Fangio suggested late in the year the corner could have returned if he wanted. That type of comment suggests the Bears have almost given up on the former first-rounder, but Fangio did say he will be given a chance to compete during camp. With newcomers Prince Amukamara and Marcus Cooper locked into the starting lineup, Fuller will be nothing more than a sub-package player even if he makes the roster.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett believes third-year LB Stephone Anthony is on the roster bubble.

A first-round pick in 2015, Anthony fell into the dog house last season, playing just 133 snaps on defense. New LBs coach Mike Nolan said he was "excited about" working with Anthony, however, and thinks he can thrive as an inside linebacker. New Orleans will certainly keep him around if he matches Nolan's expectations, but Anthony needs to show well in camp.

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes reports the Jets are "still looking to trade" Sheldon Richardson.

As they undoubtedly will until the trade deadline, but it is not a given they will be able to find a buyer. ESPN's Rich Cimini reported there was "nothing cooking" in trade talks in early June. Richardson is owed $8.1 million in the final year of his deal.

Free agent DT Roy Miller worked out for the Dolphins.

Miller tore his right Achilles' last October, but he recently said he is back at full health. A solid run stuffer, Miller would be a good depth signing for a roster which is thin behind Ndamukong Suh. Miller should land somewhere in the near future.

Cowboys third-round CB Jourdan Lewis' trial for a misdemeanor domestic violence charge will begin next week.

The Cowboys open training camp on Monday, the same day jury selection begins. Lewis' attorney said he hopes the trial will be over by Tuesday. Lewis is accused of grabbing his girlfriend by the neck and dragging her across the floor during an altercation in March, and the Dallas Morning News reports police were called to a similar incident at the same apartment in 2015. Lewis has said he is "completely innocent."

Pro Football Talk reports the Raiders and first-round CB Gareon Conley are discussing a contract.

Conley is one of six first-round picks who remain unsigned, but unlike the others, his contract situation is complicated by a still pending legal investigation into sexual assault allegations which surfaced the week of the draft. The Raiders would certainly like that case cleared before they sign Conley to a deal, but with training camp quickly approaching they may be willing to offer a contract with provisions which protect them if Conley is charged.

Trevone Boykin cleared of his probation violation.

Arrested on December 31, 2015 for resisting arrest at a San Antonio bar, Boykin was fined and sentenced to probation. He was brought in again in April after being arrested in Dallas for marijuana possession and public intoxication, but the case was settled without his probation being revoked. It is a step in the right direction for Boykin, but he still is likely facing league discipline. The Seahawks, however, have shown no signs of moving on.
