Also from today, John Elway on the decision to add $3 million worth of potential performance bonuses to cornerback Chris Harris Jr.'s contract for 2018: "He deserved it. He did. He's done a great job for us. We thought that it was the right thing for us to do on behalf of Chris and the way he's played and the things that he's done, not only on the field, but off the field. We're glad to be able to come to an agreement and incentivize him. Not that he needs it, but hopefully he reaches them all, too." The incentives include bonuses tied to games played, team wins and interceptions.

Former Colts pass-rush specialist Dwight Freeney is expected to sign a contract with Indianapolis and then immediately retire with the team, multiple sources told ESPN. Freeney spent the first 11 years of his career with the Colts where he eventually teamed up with Robert Mathis to form one of the best pass-rushing duos in the NFL. Freeney, the No. 11 overall pick in 22, had 107.5 sacks in his career with the Colts. He left the Colts after the 2012 season and had stops with the Chargers, Arizona, Atlanta, Detroit and Seattle. Freeney's 125.5 career sacks is tied for 17th in NFL history.

One of the more revealing nuggets in John Elway's answers about all things Broncos today was about the team's draft approach in the wake of running back C.J. Anderson's release. Asked about the depth of the running back class in this draft Elway said: "We feel good about the fact we'll be able to get a good one." It would seem the Broncos will look to select at least one from what it is a deep group, especially in the draft's first three rounds.

There will be a few things that new Cardinals coach Steve Wilks will look for specifically when the schedule is released tonight. “I think just the most important thing sometimes is the Monday night game, the Thursday night game, and trying to prepare (for) exactly who those guys are.” Wilks said he'll also play close attention to when Arizona's NFC West games are as well as the East Coast games so the team can “orchestrate” the travel – “When we want to leave and when we want to get there.”
