The Bills announced Monday that free-agent WR Anquan Boldin is making a visit. Boldin, 36, remains unsigned after spending last season with the Lions. If signed, he would add a veteran presence to the locker room and compete for the No. 2 receiver job with rookie Zay Jones and veteran Andre Holmes.

Cowboys will open practice today with a walkthrough in the morning and an afternoon session without pads that will be similar to an OTA practice. Jason Garrett likes to work his team for a few days before putting the pads on to help avoid injury.

The Steelers will wear this patch on their jerseys this season in honor of Dan Rooney, who died April 13 at age 84. The shamrock represents Rooney's roots as the former ambassador of Ireland. The 'DMR' stands for Dan Milton Rooney, one of the league' most respected owners. "You honor and thank him for all he did, but at the same time you never forget what he did," defensive end Cam Heyward said. "This whole city mourned his great loss."

Redskins safety DeAngelo Hall and linebacker Houston Bates both will open training camp on the physically unable to perform list, per a source. Neither one is a surprise. Both are coming off torn ACLs-- Hall hurt his in September; Bates hurt his in December. The Redskins will wait until Wednesday's physicals to determine if others open on the PUP list.

Today's Cardinals training camp round-up: Best play: Wide receiver J.J. Nelson showed he hasn't lost a step during 11-on-11 drills. He had a step on what seemed like the entire secondary and caught a pass from quarterback Drew Stanton in stride and outran everybody in a foot race to the end zone. With John Brown's status still not exactly known for the season, Nelson will be counted on to pick up some of his catches early in the season. Rookie report: This is a perfect example of how camp has gone for the Cardinals' rookies: On one play in 11-on-11, third-round pick WR Chad Williams made a nice catch after getting a step on CB Brandon Williams. A play or two later, an easy catch bounced right off his fingertips. Running back T.J. Logan had another good practice. He had a run where he cut up the left side of the field and showed off his extra gear. Second-round pick Budda Baker came off the edge on a blitz, showing he has the quickness to be another weapon for defensive coordinator James Bettcher. Overheard: "To be honest I don't think I'm past (last season)," safety Tyrann Mathieu said. "That's why I'm really harping on that confidence. Last year was a tough one, personally and I know as a team it was tough, as well. We know we're extremely talented. I know I'm extremely talented. Last year, it just seemed like we didn't play consistent enough. We didn't make enough plays and I think all those kinds of things affect your confidence."
