Steelers one of the few NFL teams without a decision on the fifth-year option for 2013 first-rounders. They have until midnight to pick up or decline the option on outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, the 17th overall pick that year. The long wait might suggest the team will decline. If that's the case, the Steelers will own his rights in 2016, then Jones would hit free agency.

"Power" is the big thing Bengals DE Margus Hunt is trying to hone this year. To get more of it, he went back to his old Olympic-style training methods this offseason. It means he's been doing more cleans, jerks and snatches as part of his training regimen. He's been working alongside former college track teammate and French Olympian (hammer throw) Jérôme Bortoluzzi as he trains for Rio.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan, explaining the decision not to exercise Dee Milliner's fifth-year option, said it was based primarily on his injury history. If Milliner plays well, they can try to negotiate a contract after the season, he said. (Via ESPN NY 98.7 FM)
