Yawin Smallwood of the Falcons is the fourth draft choice to be outright released.
RT @ffootballjunkie: @ClaytonESPN Why was he out on the field after taking a rib injury in the third game? #NotWorthIt good question
The Jets will be one of the most interesting places to watch. Could they cut Stephen Hill and Dimitri Patterson?
Big thing to watch today is to see how the Colts handle all of their offensive line injuries.
Another worry is the second rib injury of Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins, E.J. Manuel needs him desperately. Watkins was hurting.
Biggest scare of last night was Derek Anderson get a hand injury. Fortunately, it was a bruise, but with Cam Newton hurting, DA is needed.
Biggest story of last night is how Derek Carr might have positioned himself to get the Raiders starting job.
NFL Preview in up for your enjoyment on
It will be interesting to see if Josh Brent can avoid league punishment. He did sit out last year and didn't force the league to punish him.
The Patriots acquired a very athletic tight end in Tim Wright. He could fit in nicely in the Pats offense as a No. 2 pass-catching TE
Clearly, the trade for Logan Mankins was out of desperation. The guards have been manhandled. I like the trade a lot
Lovie Smith has been bold with his offensive moves, picking up Mankins' $8.5 million contract and paying Anthony Collins $6 million

Here is this week's Inside the Huddle video for ESPN.Com.…
If the NFL goes ahead and adjusts where extra points are kicked, they owe it to the fans to make the 2 point conversion at the 1, not the 2
The next juncture to see if Johnny Manziel will start will be the bye week from the Browns. if they are 0-3, the door might be open.
Sad part for the Steelers is that it took several years to build back a backfield as talented as the current one. Bell and Blount are good.
Can't see any league suspensions this year for L. Bell and L. Blount of the Steelers. It took 10 months for D Bowe to get his suspension.
Interesting that Eric Weems ended up back in Atlanta. With no solid returner, the Bears might be regretting the loss of Devin Hester to Atl

Next Thursday's Fantasy Convention in Seattle should be huge. Sign up and be there.…
Looking ahead, I get the feeling Los Angeles will get next year's draft. The main Chicago site is booked for Microsoft event.
The Arizona Cardinals needed to add a linebacker, so Desmond Bishop made some sense. We'll see how is coming off ACL.
Bucs made interesting signing by adding Larry English. Dallas opted not to sign him, but he could make it as backup pass rusher.
RT @FlitterTongue: @ClaytonESPN why even pretend with those fines when they never collect them good point, but it's worth mentioning
RT @FlitterTongue: @ClaytonESPN why even pretend with those fines when they never collect them.
We'll see if the Seahawks collect the fine. I would think they wouldn't. Question is whether they enhanced his contract.
Lynch didn't go beastmode with the picture takers but he didn't appear to be happy. the team is happy he's back.
great scene. M. Lynch goes on field post-practice to take cell call. two radio stations and network spot him and take pictures.
expect more scoring and offense this year. check out this week's inside the huddle.…
With Taylor Lewan signing with the Titans, rookie draft choice negotiating season is over. Every player took the slot offer.
The thought was that Ray Rice would get four games and then appeal for two. Interesting decision to keep the suspension to two games.
The Ravens and Ray Rice were hoping the suspension was only going to be two games. Expect no appeal.
Rice's retirement gives Chris Matthews, a 6-5 receiver from the CFL, a chance to make the roster if Seahawks keep six receivers.
The hard thing to believe in Sidney Rice's retirement is how young he is. He's 27. Age must have crept into his repaired knee.
Sidney Rice's retirement isn't a surprise. He would have had a hard time making the team.
Training camp previews are now live on the NFL Nation on ESPN. Check them out at
RT @panicgalore: @ClaytonESPN Read why Major offensive line ?'s in KC. I think you did a good job on this one. They lost 3 good blockers.l
Have some fun picking your football team's most memorable play.
With the Chiefs releasing Brandon Flowers, the Chiefs can try to extend Alex Smith and Justin Houston.
With Eric Ebron signing with the Lions, only 17 draft choices remain unsigned. Expect the rest to get done next week.
Maurkice Pouncey will earn $26. 5 million over the first three years of his new contract. There are no guarantees other than signing bonus.
