Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has a message on the back of his Nike cleats. He would like to eat in 2017.

Cardinals rookie WR Chad Williams told a story after practice today of him trying to emulate Larry Fitzgerald nine years ago … trying to catch a fish. Yes, that's right. A fish. Fitzgerald caught a fish one-handed during an appearance on Sports Science. A young Williams saw that and wanted to try his hand at catching fish while on a fishing trip with his brothers. Williams remembered catching 32 fish that day, but he didn't catch any of the fish – mostly bass – his brothers threw to him. Williams, who was the Cardinals' third-round pick this year, said he hasn't told Fitzgerald the story. Yet.

Benson Mayowa, who led the Cowboys in sacks last season with six, is not practicing Tuesday. He is expected to be limited as he deals with knee soreness that limited him in the spring.

In addition to the $4 million signing bonus, La'el Collins will receive $9.5 million fully guaranteed over the next two years. He has base salaries of $1 million and $4.5 million in 2017-18. His base salary in 2019 is $6.5 million and can grow to $8.5 million if he plays in 85% of the snaps in each of the next two seasons.

Cowboys CB Jourdan Lewis briefly told the media after a not guilty verdict Tuesday "I'm elated," and said he will be releasing a full statement later. Lewis hugged his family and friends in the courtroom after the verdict.

Steelers wide receiver Sammie Coates will miss the start of training camp after undergoing a knee scope last week, according to a source. Coates, who suffered a knee injury while training in the offseason, is a candidate for the Physically Unable to Perform list but could return in mid-August, depending how the knee heals. Tough setback for a player eager to rebound from a promising but frustrating 2016 campaign.

Attorneys in the Jourdan Lewis domestic violence case have been told a verdict has been reached. Court is back in session.

This shows you how much the Jaguars think of Brandon Linder: Even though he has yet to make a Pro Bowl, his reported $24 million guarantee is more than every center in the league except Alex Mack ($28.5 million) and Travis Frederick ($28.162 million). Linder's contract includes more guaranteed money than that of Miami's Mike Pouncey, Pittsburgh's Maurkice Pouncey, Carolina's Ryan Kalil, and New Orleans' Max Unger. Those four players have combined to make 15 Pro Bowls and five All-Pro teams.

Texans general manager Rick Smith said he doesn't consider Duane Brown not reporting to training camp "a holdout" because Brown is still under contract for two more seasons. "There's no contract dispute," Smith said. "Duane's under contract for two more years. That's our position. We're here to get our football team ready for the season, and he should be a part of it. ... Here's an important member of our team, and he ought to be here."

Another way the Cardinals are saving Carson Palmer's arm during training camp is by having him work with the offensive line, handing the ball off to running backs, while the other three quarterbacks throw passes to receivers during route drills.

The Raiders placed linebacker Ben Heeney and tight end Cooper Helfet on the Non-Football Injury List on Tuesday, four days before the team's first training camp practice. Heeney was the team's starting middle linebacker to begin last season but lost his job after two games before suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 4. Helfet joined Oakland's practice squad last Oct. 12. Both players count against the team's 90-man offseason roster.

The Panthers made several roster moves after players reported today. The most surprising was the release of wide receiver Charles Johnson, signed as a free agent during the offseason. He was waived injured. Defensive end Ryan Delaire was waived for a failed physical. Signed was center Greg Van Rosen.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians was not pleased with the wide receivers' performance during Monday's practice. "I thought it was the worst day of wide receiver play we had in five years," Arians said. "We must've dropped five touchdowns and eight other plays. Very, very poor." It's not yet a concern, but it could, potentially, get to that point. "If it's a pattern of behavior, it'll be a hell of a concern but it has not been up to this point."

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

There's one specific way that Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has seen cornerback Justin Bethel start making strides toward being a starter. "The best thing with him, when he gives up a play he just comes back and goes to the next one," Arians said. "That used to bother him and now it doesn't. He's learning to get amnesia."
