- That didn't last long. After failing to report to training camp last week, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch ended his holdout and arrived to camp on Thursday. Lynch, who held out of camp for eight days due to a contract dispute, is set to make $6.5 million this season. Lynch registered 1,257 yards and 12 touchdowns in 16 games with Seattle in 2013.

- Former Atlanta Falcons first-round pick Peria Jerry has decided to retire, the team announced Jerry's decision on Thursday afternoon. Jerry, who the Falcons selected with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, had career-highs in both tackles (25) and sacks (3.5) with Atlanta last season.
- Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice addressed the media for the first time since the alleged altercation with his then-fiancee during the offseason. "My actions that night were totally inexcusable," Rice said. "That night I replay over and over in my head. That's not me. My actions were inexcusable. That's something I have to live with the rest of my life." Rice was suspended by the NFL for two games last Thursday.
- The injuries continue to mount for the Indianapolis Colts. Guard Donald Thomas tore his quad during practice on Wednesday and will miss the entire 2014 season. Thomas, who missed all but two games during the 2013 season with the same quad injury, was expected to start at guard for the Colts in 2014.
- Rookie quarterback Blake Bortles continues to impress during Jacksonville Jaguars training camp. “He’s had OTAs and minicamp and then now he’s got four weeks to figure out what is he going to do," offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch told ESPN.com. "I thought he really prepared so he came back ahead of where I thought he was going to be.” Despite Bortles' progress, veteran quarterback Chad Henne is still expected to start Week 1 for the Jaguars.
