Steelers GM Kevin Colbert addressed Antonio Brown's contract situation on the Steelers Radio Network. "We don't renegotiate contracts with more than one year remaining with the exception of quarterbacks. Antonio's under contract," Colbert said. "He's a great player. You can't say enough good things about him. But he's a professional. He respects the process, as do we. We'll see where things end up."

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan, in a sit down with the beat writers, said it was a "big relief" to get Ryan Fitzpatrick signed. He wouldn't get into the specifics of the negotiations. He said Mo Wilkerson's contract won't preclude them from signing Sheldon Richardson, who is signed through 2017. Maccagnan praised Geno Smith, all but assuring him a spot on the 53. He said they're open to keeping four quarterbacks.

Second-round draft pick Emmanuel Ogbah worked on the defensive line in the first practice of camp. Ogbah had lined up exclusively at LB in the offseason. The season-ending injury to Desmond Bryant has the team considering all options to replace him, and Ogbah played primarily with his hand down in college.

On DeAndre Washington: way more physical than you'd think for his size. Looking forward to seeing him in practice this weekend.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera likes what he's seen from quarterback Cam Newton in the first two practices. "He's had his moments,"" Rivera said. "A couple of times he tried to force a couple of balls down field when I'd rather see him throw the check down. But he sees something . . . and he's got a lot of confidence in his guys right now. He is throwing the ball well.'' Rivera also likes Newton's straw hat. "I'm a little envious," Rivera said. "I wish I had one that for me. He looks good, though. He really does."
