Jun 22 2015 - Terrelle Pryor (Browns), WR Terrelle Pryor was claimed on waivers by the Browns from the Bengals Monday (June 22). Pryor, who had been trying to make an NFL roster as a quarterback, had been waived by Cincinnati on Friday.
After being cut by the Bengals, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Pryor was willing to switch to wide receiver in an attempt to salvage his NFL career. In making the waiver claim, the Browns said Pryor would be a receiver.
Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo was Pryor's position coach in Oakland, where Pryor played 15 games at quarterback from 2011 to 2013.
The Browns are Pryor's fifth team in the past year. He was traded from Oakland to the Seattle Seahawks in April 2014, was released by the Seahawks during the preseason and was with the Kansas City Chiefs for four months earlier this year.
The Chiefs released him May 5, and the Bengals signed him May 10 after he tried out for them during their rookie minicamp.
Pryor played in 15 games (10 starts) for the Raiders over the 2011-13 seasons, including 11 games and nine starts in 2013. He has passed for 1,953 yards, nine touchdowns and 12 interceptions while rushing for 627 yards and three touchdowns.
While playing at Ohio State, the athletically gifted Pryor caught two touchdown passes and displayed exceptional speed.
Jun 22 2015 - Ahmad Bradshaw (Free Agent), RB Ahmad Bradshaw, who wasn't tendered May 12 by the Colts as an unrestricted free agent, has been suspended for the first week of next season for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The suspension purportedly stems from a citation for marijuana possession in February.
Bradshaw, 29, has missed 19 games the past two years due to injuries. He led the Colts with 425 rushing yards (4.7 per carry) last season before suffering a season-ending broken fibula in November. He also missed 13 games in 2013 with a neck injury.
A seventh-round pick of the New York Giants in 2007, Bradshaw has rushed for 4,843 yards (4.6 average) and 36 touchdowns in eight seasons for the Giants (2007-12) and Colts (2013-14).
Jun 15 2015 - Thomas Davis (Panthers), LB Thomas Davis signed a two-year contract extension with the Panthers Monday (June 15). Davis, 32, is now under contract with the Panthers through the 2017 season.
Davis is due to earn $18 million over the next three years under the extension. The deal includes a $9 million signing bonus, part of a total compensation package of $10.25 million in 2015. He will make $3.5 million in 2016 and $4.25 million in 2017.
Davis was entering the final year of a contract that would have paid him $7.25 million this year, with a salary cap number of $9.9 million, and the extension is expected to lower his cap hit by as much as $4 million.
"Signing this extension is something I've wanted to do all along and it just confirms that I now get to officially end my career as a Carolina Panther and that means the world to me," Davis said in a statement released by the team. "I'm extremely excited about being a part of this defense and I'm looking forward to doing my part to make sure that we become the No. 1 defense in the league."
Davis has spent his entire career with the Panthers since being drafted with the 14th overall choice in the 2005 draft. Davis is the second-leading tackler in franchise history with 831, and has played in 117 regular-season games with 99 starts -- both team records for a linebacker.
"Thomas has been and continues to be an integral part of our team on the field and off the field," general manager Dave Gettleman said in the news release. "His leadership is valuable and he is still playing at a high level. We're thrilled we could get this done. He's a linchpin in our defense and we're excited that he's going to have the ability to retire as a Panther."
In 2014, Davis tallied his third consecutive 100-tackle season, finishing with 129 tackles, 2.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery and six passes defensed as the Panthers became the first team to win the NFC South in consecutive seasons.
Davis was named the 2014 Walter Payton
Jun 12 2015 - Dez Bryant (Cowboys), WR Dez Bryant is threatening to miss the Dallas Cowboys' regular-season opener unless he receives a long-term contract by July 15, according to an ESPN report on Friday.
If the Cowboys fail to sign Bryant to a contract before that date, he would have to play for a franchise tender offer of $12.823 million in 2015. That is the deadline for players with franchise tags to secure a new long-term deal.
According to ESPN, the Cowboys have not made an offer to Bryant since before the 2014 season when he switched agents from Eugene Parker to Tom Condon.
"I'm just not going to comment about that," Condon said. "Our goal is still to get something done on a long-term basis by the deadline."
After the ESPN report circulated, Michael Silver said Bryant told him, "This is no rumor. It's legit."
Bryant has not participated in the Cowboys' OTA workouts but did show up at one OTA practice session and has been a part of individual drills. The five-year veteran does not have to show up next week for the team's mandatory minicamp because he is not officially under contract.
Last season, Bryant had 88 receptions for 1,350 yards and a career-best 16 touchdowns. In five years with the Cowboys, he has 381 catches for 5,424 yards and 56 touchdowns.
Jun 10 2015 - Jordy Nelson (Packers), WR Jordy Nelson took to the field and participated on a limited basis in the Packers' OTA Wednesday (June 10).
"We're right where we want to be," Nelson said afterward.
The eight-year pro is completing his rehab work after having hip surgery early in the offseason. He hasn't been cleared for team drills with Green Bay's mandatory minicamp on the horizon June 16-18, but head coach Mike McCarthy expects Nelson to be ready for the start of training camp in late July.
"We set a plan at the beginning, and we're hitting every target," Nelson said. "We'll be ready to go by training camp."
Even before he jumped in for position drills this week for the final three days of the three-week OTA sessions, Nelson has been noticeably involved on the practice field. He took on a persona of a coach on the sideline, not holding back from talking to and giving pointers to the young receivers on the club.
"The amount of work he's put into his rehab (the last few months), he's been on time the whole time," McCarthy said. "This is all part of the plan – how he's being handled these (last) couple weeks (in the OTAs) and how he'll be handled next week."
