McVay, playfully, on rookie tight end Gerald Everett saying he and Tyler Higbee "could be better" than Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis in Washington: "I can appreciate your confidence, but those guys are the standard for the position. We haven't even played a preseason snap yet, my man."

McVay called Mike Thomas' four-game suspension for performance-enhancing substances "unfortunate," but still sounded excited for what he can bring. "We have confidence that Mike will work," McVay said. "I think he did a great job this offseason, demonstrating he can be a guy that can go down the field and then also contribute in the intermediate game and underneath."

Bills GM Brandon Beane said Thursday that Buffalo would have been doing Cardale Jones a disservice if he remained on Bills' roster. Jones was traded Wednesday to the Chargers. Beane noted that it is difficult to give four quarterbacks reps with modern, one-a-day training camp rules. Beane added Bills will stick with three quarterbacks for foreseeable future.

Rams GM Les Snead, on Aaron Donald: "He's still a priority, Aaron, for sure. And that's been a priority for us then (in the spring), this summer, and even as we head into camp." Asked if he's optimistic they can get a deal done with Donald, Snead said: "We're working to find a resolution. I don't want to get into optimistic or pessimistic, because it's a complicated situation. We respect Aaron and his group, and we're working to find a win-win."
