Ravens coach John Harbaugh's statement on national anthem issue: “I believe in standing for the flag. To me, the flag represents the ideas and the ideals that make us America. I also believe in the freedoms the flag represents and that people can speak for themselves. I know this: Our players respect the flag and what it represents. And, we're all proud at the Ravens of the work they do to make this community and country better.”

Matt Patricia opened his press conference by discussing the importance -- to him -- of Memorial Day. His quote in full: "Just before the weekend begins just wanted to make sure I take a moment to recognize the families and the veterans, all of the active military that will be reflecting throughout the next few days on family members, fellow soldiers that obviously made the ultimate sacrifice. I think Memorial Day weekend, for some, it's a time of family gatherings, cookouts and the start of summer but we shouldn't forget the real purpose behind the holiday and I've been very fortunate over the last several years to build some relationships with members of the military both past and present and their families and I personally will be thinking of them in the next coming days."

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie: "I have always believed it is the responsibility of sports teams to be very proactive in our communities. In this great country of ours, there are so many people who are hurting and marginalized, which is why I am proud of our players for continuously working to influence positive change. Their words and actions have demonstrated not only that they have a great deal of respect for our country, but also that they are committed to finding productive ways to fight social injustice, poverty and other societal issues that are important to all of us. We must continue to work together in creative and dynamic ways to make our communities stronger and better with equal opportunities for all."

With domestic violence charges against him dismissed Wednesday afternoon, 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster can re-join the team on Thursday, according to a statement from GM John Lynch. "The organization is aware the domestic violence charges against Reuben Foster were dismissed earlier today," Lynch said. "As a result, he will have the opportunity to rejoin the team tomorrow. It has been made clear to Reuben that his place on this team is one that must continue to be earned. We will continue to monitor the remaining misdemeanor charge.”

Judge Nona L. Klippen cited insufficient cause to believe either charge related to domestic violence against Reuben Foster rose to the level of probable cause. Klippen made multiple references to a lack of evidence throughout her statement. Thus, both charges were dismissed.

Officially official as the Raiders announced on Wednesday the acquisition of QB Christian Hackenberg for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2019 draft. Oakland waived CB Senquez Golson in the corresponding move to make room for Hackenberg on the Raiders' 90-man offseason roster.

Starting corner Joe Haden works on his pass-catching in Steelers OTAs. Haden said this is the first offseason in three years he's felt completely healthy.

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.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
