The Jets announced the signing of former 49ers WR Quinton Patton. He will be reunited with his former 49ers position coach, John Morton, now the Jets' offensive coordinator. Patton set career highs last season in catches (37) and yards (408). The deal had been in the works since Patton visited last Saturday.

NFL's push to include threat of ejection or suspension for illegal hits will be reserved only for what EVP Troy Vincent called "catastrophic" hits. Competition committee chairman Rich McKay said an explanatory video meant for players and coaches has only four or five examples.

NFL competition committee wants to show players a video of unacceptable hits that could lead not only to penalties but also to ejections and suspensions, according to chairman Rich McKay. No changes on rules would be made.

NFL's efforts to increase the pace of game will include a 40-second play clock after extra points that aren't followed by timeouts, and a strict 13:30 time limit for halftime, per Dean Blandino.

NFL competition committee recommending one more year of experimenting with the rule that moved the touchback to the 25-yard line on kickoffs. Would evaluate after the 2017 season.

Source tells me UConn safety Obi Melifonwu had a private meeting today with Bucs defensive backs coach Brett Maxie. He had a really solid pro day Wednesday. Showed great movement, fluidity, footwork and was explosive when he accelerated. Scouts really like his length too. He posted a 44-inch vertical at the combine (one inch off the combine all-time record) and his 6-foot-4 frame gives him the ability to match up against bigger receivers and tight ends.

Backup quarterback Kellen Moore did not receive a signing bonus but he had $100,000 of his base salary guaranteed in his one-year deal with the Cowboys. Interestingly that is more guaranteed money than what Darren McFadden received ($80,000) in his one-year deal with the Cowboys.
