Nashville mayor David Briley, Titans CRO Stuart Spears and Nashville convention & visitors corp. President/CEO Butch Spyridon‬ sporting big smiles after 2019 Draft bid. A lot of praise for Amy Adams Strunk, who they called their "ace in the hole." Big for Titans brand and city.

Zack Martin is not taking part in the OTAs but there is no doubting how the Cowboys and Jason Garrett feel about him. Martin has taken over the locker that had been occupied by Jason Witten for two years at The Star. Garrett puts all of the team leaders in strategic spots in the room. DeMarcus Lawrence has moved to Dez Bryant's spot. Travis Frederick has moved to a corner spot occupied by Darren McFadden.

The Lions signed LB Trevor Bates on Wednesday, cutting TE DeAndre Goolsby. Bates was on the New England practice squad in 2016 and the New York Giants practice squad for most of the 2017 season. He was initially drafted by the Indianapolis Colts out of Maine as a seventh-round pick in 2016. The 24-year-old has played in one NFL game and did not record a tackle. He had 15 tackles for the Patriots last preseason before being cut.

Normally running backs will take almost all of their carries during practice to the end zone to work on conditioning. Ezekiel Elliott did more than that in the first OTA. On the final rep of team drills whether he got the ball or not he ran to the end zone, sometimes as much as 40 yards.

Christopher Johnson's pro-player comments on the NFL's new national-anthem policy might not be received well among fellow owners and CEOs, but they reinforced why he's so popular in the Jets' locker room. The players have a genuine respect for Johnson, who has devoted many hours of his time to listening and helping them in their fight for social justice. You may not agree with his stance, but the people under his employ — the players — believe he gets it. You wonder how older brother/owner Woody Johnson, who works for Donald Trump as the ambassador to the UK, would be handling this polarizing matter.

Running back Derrius Guice's vision and plant-and-cut ability were on display in drills Wednesday. He caught the ball well when they threw to him in group work vs. no defense. But it was Rob Kelley who opened with the starters.

Rookie Daron Payne worked a lot at nose tackle and also got reps in their nickel front. Payne did beat rookie Geron Christian on one rush, showing quick feet. Payne's true impact vs. the run won't be felt until the games begin.

Broncos president and CEO Joe Ellis on what the Broncos will do in the wake of the NFL's new policy on the national anthem: "It's important that we discuss today's developments with our players, and I'm looking forward to speaking with them as soon as possible. As we've said publicly as well as in conversations with our team and other constituents, we want all members of our organization to stand for the National Anthem. At the same time, we need to listen to our players and support the issues and causes that matter to them."

Chargers GM Tom Telesco confirmed that TE Hunter Henry will miss the 2018 season with an ACL right knee injury. Telesco said Henry is taking the news hard, but he's strong mentally and the team will support him. Telesco said Henry suffered the injury while running a routine out route during practice that he has run hundreds of times, finishing the route 40 yards down the field running at half speed. The Chargers have not yet scheduled surgery for Henry. Asked if he's reached out to Antonio Gates' representation about the possibility of his return, Telesco had this to say: "I don't get into things that we have done, that we could do or that we will do," he said. "I wouldn't do that with anybody as far as transactions are concerned. Like I said, we'll look at all of the options that are out there and see where the road takes us."

Jets CEO Christopher Johnson on the NFL's new national-anthem policy: "I plan to sit in the very near future with coach Bowles and our players to discuss today's decision regarding the national anthem. As I have in the past, I will support our players wherever we land as a team. Our focus is not on imposing any club rules, fines or restrictions. Instead we will continue to work closely with our players to constructively advance social justice issues that are important to us. I remain extremely proud of how we demonstrated unity last season as well as our players' commitment to strengthening our communities."

Dalvin Cook went through individual drills and did work on the rehab field when the team got together for 11 on 11, etc. Mike Zimmer said Cook was "ahead of schedule" with his rehab last week and could see some action during the latter portion of OTAs around the time of mandatory minicamp. "I think he'll probably get some work and then should be ready to roll for training camp," Zimmer said.

Courtney Cronin ESPN Staff Writer 

Mike Zimmer was asked about the NFL's national anthem policy that passed today and what he wants his team to adhere to: "I was proud of my team last year. They stood for the anthem. I think it's important that we stand for the anthem. I think it's important that we represent our country the right way, the flag the right way. I probably shouldn't get on a tangent, right? But a lot of people have died for that flag and that flag represents our country and what we stand for. I think that's important. I'll stop there."

Vince Williams (No. 98) knows the Steelers can't replace Ryan Shazier but believes the inside linebackers can get the job done. New ILB Jon Bostic ‘loves football,' Williams said.

Today is a big day on a number of levels (and in varying degrees of importance) for the 49ers. This morning, owner Jed York abstained from voting on the league's new national anthem policy because he wants to hear more from players. This afternoon, linebacker Reuben Foster's legal situation should get some clarity as a Santa Clara County judge rules on whether any or all of the three felonies against him will proceed to trial. And tonight, the team will hold its "state of the franchise" event, where it is expected to unveil a new alternate or throwback uniform.

T.J. Watt (No. 90) said he's hunting ‘more splash plays' in year two. He was working on that goal with assistant coach Joey Porter during Wednesday's OTA session.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Duke Johnson says that he and the Browns are in discussions about a contract extension, and he's "very optimistic" the two sides will come to an agreement.

49ers owner Jed York abstained from voting today on the NFL's new anthem policy. The owner of the team that employed Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid told reporters: "I think there are a lot of reasons, and I'm not going to get into all of those reasons. But I think the gist of it is really that we want to make sure that everything that we're doing is to promote progress. And I think we've done a good piece of that so far."
