From NFL Now: As the players on PUP are eligible to come off the list and practice, we took a look at some key ones. Of note: #Saints  WR Michael Thomas is believed to be a few weeks away.

FA G Forrest Lamp, who started all 16 games for the #Chargers  last year, has signed to the #Saints  practice squad, source said. Former high 2nd round pick is still only 27. High upside.

From @gmfb : The #Ravens  lost All-Pro LT Ronnie Stanley for the season due to ankle surgery, while the #Bills  will be without TE Dawson Knox due to a broken hand.

The #Browns  will start Case Keenum on Thursday night vs. the #Broncos .

Former #Vikings  RB and returner Ameer Abdullah is visiting the #Panthers , per the wire.

The #Colts  restructured WR TY Hilton’s 1-year contract to create $2.3M in cap room to help them operate, source said.

#Browns QB Baker Mayfield is expected to need surgery on his torn labrum following the season, sources say, the result of the hits he’s taken on his non-throwing shoulder. The belief is he can deal with it through the season, but incurring more damage would make it challenging.

After having only $151,989 in cap room, the #Rams  restructured OT Rob Havenstein's contract to create $3.072M in more room, source said. Tight against the cap and all in, they have now moved $48.222M this year.

Just a few days after the team signed him to their practice squad, the #Giants  are elevating veteran LB Benardrick McKinney to their game day roster and he’ll play Sunday, source said. LB Tae Crowder (thigh) was just added to injury report.


Former #Seahawks  QB Tarvaris Jackson died last night in a car accident in Alabama, a spokesperson for his employer Tennessee State tells me. Jackson, 36, was TSU’s QB coach. Along with Seattle, he also played for the #Vikings  and #Bills .

The #Patriots  and #Bucs  have agreed to terms on a trade: Tampa gets Rob Gronkowski and a 7th rounder in exchange for a 4th rounder, sources say.

It’s Draft Day. Finally. We need this.

The #Texans  are releasing star JJ Watt, source said.

It’s not just Aaron Rodgers: The #Packers  and star WR Davante Adams have broken off long-term extension talks. There are no current plans to resume them. The two sides have been negotiating for months, but they are now in a bad place, sources say. First the QB, now the No. 1 WR.

Sources: #Ravens  star QB Lamar Jackson tested positive for COVID-19.

Source: The #Patriots  are signing Cam Newton to a 1-year deal. A chance to compete. This has been in the works. A bare minimum deal.
