Jets WR Brandon Marshall, commenting on tonight's episode of Showtime's "Inside the NFL," offered his take on Odell Beckham Jr. "What I see is a guy who loves football," Marshall said. "What I see is a guy who is passionate. What I see is a guy who hates losing. What I see is a guy who would run through a brick wall for his teammates. But, what I see is a guy who needs to learn how to control his emotions, because that is what I deal with every single Sunday."

With Tyron Smith suffering back spasms and Doug Free working through a quadriceps strain, the Dallas Cowboys will sign offensive tackle Emmett Cleary, who was cut earlier this month by the New York Giants. Before the signing is official, the Cowboys have to clear a roster spot. Cleary was among a number of players the Cowboys worked out after the season opener. The Cowboys don't believe Smith's injury is severe, but Cleary offers some insurance.
