JuJu Smith-Schuster, jokingly, on Le'Veon Bell possibly heading into his final year with the Steelers: "If Le'Veon Bell's leaving, I might have to hop in that car with him." Smith-Schuster, slightly more serious: "We need to pay him. I'll give him a couple mill to be on our team."

Randy Gregory is grateful he will have another chance to earn a living with the Dallas Cowboys after being conditionally reinstated by the NFL. “It is (my final chance) and if it's not I'm definitely treating it like it is,” Gregory told ESPN. “I feel like a lot of other organizations wouldn't have stuck around for this ling. I think part of it is just the faith in what I can do on the field, but they also saw that I was a struggling kid that was trying to get himself back on the right path ...I'm a totally different person than I was coming into the league. In some ways better. I think Jerry (Jones) and the whole organization, they understood the situation fully and there was going to be some setbacks. Hopefully this is the last one as far as all that.”

The major motivation in trading for WR Brandin Cooks, and giving up a first-round pick in the process, was the Rams' confidence in being able to sign him to a long-term contract. One way or the other, they'll have Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Cooks under control for several years. That's darn good.

Adisa Bakari, Le'Veon Bell's agent, said on NFL Live that the Steelers are a great organization that worked with him in earnest but "do deals a little differently" (typically, guaranteeing the first year of a contract and the signing bonus and not future years). "We have to focus on the guarantee," Bakari said.
