      Watt signed a six-year extension with the Texans on Tuesday, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports.

      Analysis: The contract ensures that Watt becomes the NFL's highest-paid defensive player. Through 48 career games, the pass rusher has been a devastating force against all comers, accumulating 36.5 sacks, eight forced fumbles, and six fumble recoveries. With rookie Jadeveon Clowney's similarly high motor opposite Watt for the first time this season, it remains to be seen what heights the 2012 Defensive Player of Year will scale in the years to come.

      Gordon was released by the Chiefs on Sunday, the Kansas City Star reports.

      Analysis: Gordon was kept on as the fourth tight end, but was in a vulnerable position because of it. His spot was taken by Damion Square, who the Chiefs claimed off waivers.

      Coach Tom Coughlin got annoyed at reporters asking questions about Beckham's hamstring injury Monday and indicated the rookie wideout could miss 2-3 weeks, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

      Analysis: It's hard to tell how precise Coughlin was being because he was ranting about his annoyance at the situation, but it's clear Beckham is almost a lock to miss Week 1, and we wouldn't count on him for Weeks 2 or 3, either.

      After practicing Monday, Watkins (ribs) feels confident about his chances of playing this week, BuffaloBills.com reports. Said the rookie, "I feel just about normal. I had a great practice (Monday). I felt normal. It felt pretty good out there ... I'm hoping I'm going to be out there on the field playing, getting reps with the guys and go out there and try to fight for a win."

      Analysis: Watkins may have to wear a flak jacket, but it sounds like he stands a very good chance of playing his first regular season game this week, where he's expected to be a starter right off the bat.

    • Jones is confident he can rise...

      Jones is confident he can rise to the expectations of his team this season, a belief that is shared by head coach Mike Tomlin, according to Steelers.com. "I expect (Jones), and I expect us, to continually get better even as we push through opening day and into this season," said Tomlin.

      Analysis: Jones played in 14 games in his rookie season, but the Steelers will need him to produce more than the one sack he managed in 2013. As a result, he is expected to do less "freelancing" this season, working within the structure of the defense. The result could lead to a significant increase in sacks, making Jones fantasy relevant in IDP leagues.
