                For a second round pick and EJ Gaines.

                Buffalo also traded Ronald Darby, a young up and coming corner for Jordan Matthews and a 3rd rounder to the Eagles. I get rebuilding, but that's a dumb move. They lost stephon gilmore and now you give up your best corner for a 3rd round pick and a receiver that isn't even as good or as young as the one you traded away. Lol they're worse than the Browns or the Jets.

                    Saints fired team orthopedists after learning CB Delvin Breaux had fractured fibula when it was diagnosed as a contusion, per @MikeTriplett.

                    Texans will hire him.

                    • Report: Le'Veon Bell nixed five-year deal
                      According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Le'Veon Bell's agent had agreed to a five-year extension with the Steelers but Bell turned it down.

                      Per Bouchette, Bell's agent had a five-year deal in place that would have netted the All-Pro running back more than $12 million annually including $30 million over the first two season. The contract was agreed to the afternoon of the July 17 deadline for franchise players but Bell had a last-minute change of heart and decided to nix the deal. Bell, who has held out from Steelers training camp this summer, wants to reset the running back market, reportedly seeking up to $15 million annually. Despite the deal falling through, Bell is expected to join the Steelers ahead of Week 1.

                        Fun watch.

                        Notice Brees put his helmet on to throw.

                        Might happen when we practice vs Saints/Brees.

                        • Aaron Donald Holdout Reportedly Could Last into Regular Season

                          BR
                          When the Los Angeles Rams open the 2017 season on Sep. 10 against the Indianapolis Colts, it's possible defensive tackle Aaron Donald won't be with the team as he continues to hold out for a new contract.

                          Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Donald and the Rams are "not particularly close to a deal" and his "holdout is threatening to last into the regular season."

                          According to Schefter, one source "speculated that he could envision Donald sitting out 2017" before adding that contract negotiations can change in a hurry.

                          Donald was present at the Rams' mandatory minicamp in June, but he's been away from the team awaiting a new contract since training camp opened on July 28.

                          Rams general manager Les Snead told ESPN.com's Alden Gonzalez on Aug. 12 there hasn't been "any movement" on a long-term contract with Donald.

                          A two-time All-Pro, Donald is entering the fourth year of his rookie contract. The 26-year-old is scheduled to make $1.8 million in base salary this season, per Spotrac. He's been one of the best defensive tackles in the NFL over his first three seasons with 163 total tackles and 28 sacks.

                          By failing to report to camp by Aug. 8, Donald did lose one year of service time toward free agency, and he can be fined up to $40,000 per day for missing training camp.
