Jeremy Ebert WR ATL 1 Day
Falcons signed WR Jeremy Ebert.
A seventh-round journeyman, Ebert caught three passes across six games for the Jaguars last season. If he has any shot at cracking the Falcons' 53-man roster, it's as a special teamer who can man the final wideout spot in a pinch.
Joel Dreessen TE DEN 1 Day
Broncos released TE Joel Dreessen.
Dreessen was cut with the "failed physical" designation. He underwent surgery on his left knee in February, his third operation on the same knee is less than a calendar year. Dreessen will turn 32 on Saturday and may be nearing the end of the line with his body starting to betray him. The Broncos save $2.5 million.
Mike Pollak CIN 1 Day
Bengals placed G/C Mike Pollak (knee) on the active/PUP list.
Pollak avoided being placed on PUP when the Bengals put nine on the list Monday, leading many to believe Pollak was recovered from his knee issue. It doesn't appear that way. We'll consider Pollak week-to-week. The more time he misses, the more opportunities rookie Russell Bodine will get as the starting center.
Pat Angerer LB ATL 1 Day
Free agent ILB Pat Angerer worked out for the Falcons on Tuesday.
Angerer, 27, ended last season on injured reserve with the Colts due to a knee injury that required offseason surgery. His workout with the Falcons is his first nibble of action since. The former second-round pick has also battled concussion and foot problems the past two years. Atlanta is simply looking for bodies after losing ILB Sean Weatherspoon to a torn Achilles' in the spring.
Larry English LB SD 1 Day
Chargers released OLB Larry English.
English was the 16th overall pick in the 2009 draft and is not subject to waivers. The 28-year-old has missed 28 games over the past four seasons mostly due to right foot problems. He has 11 career sacks across 52 career games, but has never accumulated more than three in a season. English's roster spot has been in jeopardy the past couple years, and GM Tom Telesco finally cut the cord. He should be able to latch on with another team for the summer.
Andre Williams RB NYG 1 Day
Giants fourth-round rookie RB Andre Williams worked in the goal-line package with the first-team offense at Tuesday's opening training camp practice.
Williams appears to be opening camp ahead of Peyton Hillis on the depth chart for short-yardage and goal-line work. Williams is a north-south runner with zero jukes to his game, which obviously limits him between the 20s. That's where Rashad Jennings and David Wilson will earn their keep. But if Williams can secure goal-line duties, he immediately propels himself onto the re-draft radar. We're in the early stages of summer, but it's something to watch closely.
Odell Beckham WR NYG 1 Day
Giants first-round rookie WR Odell Beckham battled a hamstring injury during the spring, and is unsure if it's back to 100 percent.
Beckham did say the balky hammy is "feeling a lot better," though. It's notable because hamstring injuries can linger, especially for receivers, and Beckham actually appeared to pull up lame on a deep route on his first rep with the first-team offense in Tuesday's opening training camp practice. Beckham is expected to be the No. 3 or 4 option in the Giants' passing game in year one, operating mostly as a field-stretcher to clear space for Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle.
Thad Lewis QB BUF 1 Day
Thad Lewis and Jeff Tuel are competing for the Bills' No. 2 quarterback job.
With E.J. Manuel coming off three knee surgeries and proving to be rather injury-prone as a rookie, it's a battle worth monitoring from afar. Lewis entered the spring as the heavy favorite, but Tuel impressed during OTAs and "earned himself some more reps." The two have been splitting second-team work the first couple days of training camp. Lewis was far better than UDFA Tuel in 2013.
Adrian Wilson DB CHI 1 Day
Bears SS Adrian Wilson says he didn't tear his Achilles' last summer, but was dealing with Haglund's deformity.
Haglund's deformity is most common in women. It's a bony enlargement on the back of the heel near the Achilles' tendon that often leads to bursitis, a painful inflammation of the bursa sac. It becomes irritated when rubbing against shoes. Wilson is competing for a roster spot in a wide-open Bears safety group.
Andre Johnson WR HOU 1 Day
According to ESPN Texans reporter Tania Ganguli, Andre Johnson was at NRG Stadium in Houston on Monday.
