Updating a previous item, Andrew Luck's new six-year, $140 million contract makes him the highest-paid player in NFL history.

Prior to Luck signing, Joe Flacco paced the market at $22.1 million per year. Luck blows that out of the water. With the salary cap rising each of the past couple years and continuing to swell, it made it easy for the Colts to get this done. T.Y. Hilton is also under contract for the next five years through 2020.

Colts signed QB Andrew Luck to a new six-year, $140 million contract through 2021.

This deal resets the top of the quarterback market and contains a record-setting $87 million guaranteed. Luck was entering the final year of his rookie contract. Despite missing half of last season and struggling for large chunks of the eight games he was in there, Luck deserves every penny. GM Ryan Grigson hasn't done anything to protect Luck during his now-four-year career, failing to get him any offensive linemen and subjecting "the franchise" to unnecessary hits. Now back to full health, Luck should be in for a big bounce-back year as a top-flight QB1. He's now signed through his age-32 season.

Roy Cummings of Today's Pigskin believes Austin Seferian-Jenkins' attitude "has the potential to cost him his job."

"Seferian-Jenkins is a $10 million talent with a ten-cent head," Cummings wrote. "In just two seasons with the Buccaneers, he’s proved he has the uncanny ability to turn a molehill of a mistake into a mushroom cloud of trouble." The third-year tight end was kicked out of spring practice three weeks ago, and it wasn't the first time he's butted heads with his coaches. ASJ probably isn't in danger of being cut, but the Bucs would probably entertain trade offers for him. Coach Dirk Koetter has said Cameron Brate is in the mix to start ahead of Seferian-Jenkins.

Dorial Green-Beckham said he's been "getting in my playbook a lot and studying" since Titans minicamp.

"So during camp I’ll be one of those guys that’s out there flying around making plays and just having fun and staying in that rhythm the whole year," he continued. DGB is saying all the right things, but maybe he's taken getting bumped from the first-team offense at minicamp to heart. Coach Mike Mularkey called the sophomore out for minor mental errors in the spring. DGB has all the physical tools in the world, but needs to put it all together consistently this summer.

Ex-NFL QB Johnny Manziel said he's going "completely sober" starting this Friday, July 1.

Hahaha. Okay, maybe he's serious. But if Manziel's past lifestyle is any indication, it won't last. "No booze, eating right and training like crazy." Those were apparently Manziel's words to TMZ Sports. JFF also said he's determined to make an NFL comeback and ready to get back to work. Only after two more days of binge drinking and partying. We'd be shocked if Manziel plays in 2016.

Rams hired ex-49ers coach Mike Singletary as a defensive advisor.

Singletary has been away from the game since he was let go as a Vikings assistant following the 2013 season when coach Leslie Frazier was fired. Prior to that, he was the 49ers' head coach from 2008-2010. Singletary's role with the Rams remains unclear, but he'll likely work with the linebackers and be an ear for new MLB Alec Ogletree, who is making the transition from the weak side.

Free agent DL Cory Redding announced his retirement from the NFL after 13 seasons.

Arizona released Redding in April. Redding was a 2003 third-round pick of the Lions. He played six seasons in Detroit before spending one year with the Seahawks, two with the Ravens, three with the Colts, and this past season with the Cardinals. Redding, 35, managed 35.5 career sacks as an interior rusher.

Texans TEs coach John Perry recently talked up Ryan Griffin.

"Ryan gives us ability in a lot of respects," Perry said. "He's not just one-dimensional. He can be effective in the pass game. He can be effective as a blocker." Griffin has loads of ability at 6'6/254, but hasn't been able to get on the field or stay on it through three seasons. He missed half of last year with a sprained MCL but still set career-highs across the board with a 20-251-2 line. Houston rivaled the Jets for the league's worst tight-end situation last season.

Falcons DL coach Bryan Cox said they must find a way to turn Vic Beasley's QB hurries into sacks.

Pressure is production, so Beasley's 33 hurries and five QB hits as a rookie are nothing to scoff at, but Atlanta wants more than the four sacks Beasley was able to manage. Beasley is expected to move to SAM linebacker in the base defense, but most of his snaps will likely come off the edge as a rusher. Beasley's 33 hurries were 12th-most among 48 qualified 4-3 ends last season.

Contract-year WR Justin Hunter admits "there's another level" to his game.

"I am definitely going to have to bring it in training camp," Hunter continued. "There’s a lot of competition, a lot of people fighting for positions and things like that. You can’t slack off because another guy is coming for your spot. I have to keep grinding." The fourth-year underachiever seems to now realize he won't be handed anything with the Titans' additions at his position. He and Dorial Green-Beckham are the two most physically-gifted receivers in Tennessee, but Hunter hasn't done a whole lot since his 2013 rookie year.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Cowboys second-round LB Jaylon Smith (knee) has experienced "no significant improvement" in his damaged nerve.

Werder concedes that Smith playing in 2016 "seems unlikely." Prior to the draft, Smith was dealing with "drop-foot", a condition where the front of the foot can drag across the ground while walking because the nerve doesn't fire to raise it. Smith faces a long road back to even become half the player he was at Notre Dame. The Cowboys may end up regretting picking him at No. 34.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Rams are "discussing a role" to hire ex-49ers coach Mike Singletary.

Singletary and coach Jeff Fisher were teammates back in their playing days. Singletary went 18-22 as the 49ers' coach from 2008-2010 and was an assistant for the Vikings in 2011. He's been out of the league ever since but has interviewed for head-coach jobs. The Hall of Famer is chomping to get back at it.

Seahawks signed WR Doug Baldwin to a four-year, $46 million extension through 2020.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports it includes $24.25 million guaranteed. It makes Baldwin one of the highest-paid second-tier receivers in the league, and is a nice middle ground after Baldwin exploded for an unrepeatable 14 touchdowns in 2015. Baldwin, who turns 28 in September, is now locked up through his age-32 campaign. Baldwin is the Seahawks' clear-cut No. 1 wideout, but could face a run for his money from Tyler Lockett as early as this season.

Seahawks UDFA QB Trevone Boykin has been charged with assault in Texas in relation to the December incident that got him suspended from the Alamo Bowl.

An intoxicated Boykin allegedly assaulted a police officer. The Seahawks obviously knew of the incident when they signed Boykin in May. Both coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider have compared Boykin to Russell Wilson, and insist he has a chance to earn No. 2 duties in camp.
Jun 28 - 6:00 PM

ESPN's Ed Werder reports the Cardinals would like to hammer out an extension with contract-year DB Tyrann Mathieu before training camp.

The talks are complicated not just by the fact that Mathieu is recovering from a torn ACL, but also that he wants to be paid like a corner. The Cardinals are probably more inclined to offer safety money even though the majority of Mathieu's 2015 snaps came in the slot. Week 1 might be a more realistic deadline for a deal.
