Dez Bryant hopes for new deal
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:47 am ET) The Cowboys are talking with receiver Dez Bryant's agent about a long-term contract extension, but the sides are not close to a deal as the team opens training camp, reports ESPN.

Bryant wants to be among the highest-paid receivers in the league, but he understands he likely will have to wait to cash in with a new contract. Coming off his first Pro Bowl appearance, Bryant is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is due to make $1.78 million this season.

"It feels good to know that things are being talked about, but I'm going to let it take care of itself," Bryant said. "I feel like as long as I take care of business on that field, the rest will be taken care of."

Bryant, 25, caught 93 passes for 1,233 yards and 13 touchdowns last season.

"We'll see what happens," Bryant said. "This is a business. That's the way I've got to look at it. I know that's the way they look at it. We'll go from there."

(10:45 am ET) The Seahawks are willing to reconfigure Marshawn Lynch's contract for him but won't give him any new money on a deal they signed him to two years ago, ESPN's Jim Trotter reported. Lynch is holding out from Seahawks camp and is asking for a new deal. 

Lynch is due over $5 million for 2014 and is eligible to earn over $7 million in 2015 before becoming a free agent.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:41 am ET) The Ravens have signed suspended safety Will Hill to a one-year deal, according to the Baltimore Sun. Hill is suspended for six games for violating the league's substance abuse policy while with the Giants, his second suspension since entering the NFL.

"If we need it, Will will provide depth in the middle of the season," Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome explained.


Rams being cautious with Jake Long
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:40 am ET) The Rams will be cautious with left tackle Jake Long in training camp after last year's knee injury, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Jake is right on course right now," coach Jeff Fisher said. "I think if we're smart, he'll be limited to start camp. He'll participate in individual (drills) and do some stuff. And we'll just start building the reps and building him into practice."


Sam Bradford 'full-go' for start of training camp
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:33 am ET) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) will be "full-go" for the start of training camp, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Sam is in great shape," Fisher said. "He's ready to go. We don't have (reservations) — right now as we speak, as camp starts — he's full-go. If we need to back him down here and there, we'll back him down."

Fisher indicated Bradford may not play in the preseason opener against New Orleans. But if Bradford doesn't play vs. the Saints, Fisher said it won't be injury-related.


Patriots already liking rookie James White
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:31 am ET) Patriots running backs coach Ivan Fears didn't hold back on talking about their rookie rusher James White

"I like his running style," Fears said per the Boston Herald. "He runs like a big guy for a little guy. He plays big. He's a great person. He works hard. He works hard off the field, to study, to learn, to do the things we need him to do. We'll see what he's like when the pads come on. Right now, he's doing everything right. It's hard not to be in love with him."

Originally assumed to be the backup for Shane Vereen, White could also handle backup duty behind Stevan Ridley if needed. White had 1,444 yards on 221 carries with 13 touchdowns at Wisconsin last season. 


Leon Hall back at practice
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:22 am ET) Bengals cornerback Leon Hall was back at practice on Thursday, ESPN reported. Hall tore his Achilles last season. 

"Mentally, it's easier the second time," Hall said about coming back from an injury again. "Not even close. I mean, the first time going into my goal was to come back for training camp, and I felt I could achieve that goal, but obviously I was going into it blind. I didn't know what to expect. I didn't know what to do as opposed to this second time."


Andy Dalton looks improved on Day 1
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10:16 am ET) As Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson cautioned, it's only Day 1, but Andy Dalton looks much improved following an offseason of tweaking his mechanics with quarterback guru Tom House. ESPN reports Dalton was on the money not just on small and mid-range throws but he also hit the deep ball perfectly a couple of times to none other than A.J. Green.

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
