by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11:10 am ET) Slay agreed to a four-year, $50.2 million contract extension with the Lions on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Slay's new deal with the Lions also includes $23 million fully guaranteed at signing, as he remains the team's top cornerback. The 25-year-old amassed 59 tackles, 13 passes defensed, and two interceptions in 16 games during the 2015 season, his third year in the league.

Cowboys' Orlando Scandrick: Cleared for football activities
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(11:02 am ET) Scandrick (knee) has been medically cleared to resume all football activities, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports.

Scandrick is in line to participate throughout training camp as he returns from a torn ACL, while it appears realistic he could be at 100% health by Week 1 of the regular season. The Cowboys' cornerback corps also includes Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr, with Scandrick slated to fill in as the No. 3 option.

Bengals' Rey Maualuga: Cleared to practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10:00 am ET) Maualuga (undisclosed) was cleared to practice Friday.

Maualuga was placed on the active/non-football injury list earlier in the week due to an undisclosed issue, but he's already been cleared to return to the field. At this point there appears to be little concern regarding the starting middle linebacker's status moving forward.

Dolphins' Dion Jordan: Reinstated from suspension
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(9:18 am ET) Jordan was informed Friday he has been reinstated from his suspension, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Jordan, who was suspended for the entirety of the 2015 NFL season due to a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, will be given a chance to make the Dolphins' roster in training camp as his suspension has officially been lifted. The team's defensive line, which already includes Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake, and Mario Williams, could receive another boost if Jordan is able to perform well in camp and secure a spot. He comes at a bit of a price for Miami, as he's due $1.7 million in bonus money if he's still with the team on just the fifth day of training camp.

Chris Clemons: Retiring after 12 seasons
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7/28/2016) Clemons has informed the Seahawks that he is planning to retire, Mike Garafolo of reports.

Clemons is retiring after signing a one-year deal with the Seahawks in the spring. The 34-year-old defensive end only recorded 14 combined tackles in 16 games for the Jaguars in 2015, but enjoyed a long and prosperous NFL career, racking up 69 sacks in his 12 seasons. He had arguably the most productive stint in his career in Seattle, where he racked up 38 sacks in four seasons from 2010 to 2013.

Panthers' Star Lotulelei: Sits out team drills
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7/28/2016) Lotulelei sat out team drills on Thursday due to tightness in his hamstring, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Lotulelei's hamstring tightness doesn't appear to be anything too serious and shouldn't impact him too much going forward. He was able to partake in individual drills and position drills prior to sitting out when full team drills began. Entering his fourth season, Lotulelei will again be the Panthers' starting defensive tackle and look to improve on his one sack, 22 tackle performance last year.

Cowboys' Barry Church: Enters training camp healthy
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7/28/2016) Church (arm) enters training camp with 100 percent health, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.

A tough son of a gun, Church brushed off a high ankle sprain for the last two months of the season, but a broken arm in Week 16 was too much to overcome in his quest for a third consecutive complete campaign. Despite the sprain and missing one game, the strong safety totaled 117 tackles (78 solo), which ranked third among defensive backs behind the Dolphins' Reshad Jones and the Bills' Corey Graham. Entering his age-28 season, Church is still within the window to produce elite numbers, and reaching triple digits in tackles would mark his third such occasion in four years.

Giants' Jason Pierre-Paul: Healthy heading into camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7/28/2016) More than a year removed from blowing off his fingers in a fireworks accident, Pierre-Paul said his right hand feels the same as his left hand, the Newark Star-Ledger reports. He plans to ditch the club and wear a specially designed glove this season. "I'm not worried about no club," Pierre-Paul said. "My hand feels great. No complaining, no nothing. I've been training hard. The club is not going to be an issue."

Playing opposite Oliver Vernon, Pierre-Paul is unlikely to be doubled very often, and if he's his old self, he could wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks.

Jets' Darrelle Revis: Listed day-to-day with wrist injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7/28/2016) Revis (wrist) is listed as day-to-day according to head coach Todd Bowles, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

After undergoing offseason wrist surgery, Revis subsequently missed the entirety of the Jets' offseason program with the expectation to return in time for training camp. No setbacks in his rehabilitation have been reported, though, so the Jets are likely just being cautious with their veteran cornerback during the commencement of training camp.

Patriots' Jamie Collins: Misses practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(7/28/2016) Collins (undisclosed) was not present at Thursday's practice, CSN New England reports.

Per the report, his absence was an expected one and is not thought to be related to any sort of issues with his contract. It's possible that Collins, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal, may be dealing with a minor issue, but the fact that he didn't open training camp on the Patriots' preseason PUP list hints at a return sooner rather than later.
