49ers placed RB Carlos Hyde on active/NFI list.
No news yet on what the reasoning actually is, but he's not expected to miss a ton of time. Hyde needs the reps in order to establish himself as the lead guy so this is concerning from a fantasy perspective. The Niners backfield should be an intriguing news story throughout the preseason.

Saints release DT Brodrick Bunkley.
A failed physical did Bunkley in on this one as he apparently has not fully healed from a torn quad he sustained in November. Once healthy he could be a useful run stopper in the middle of the line for a team but at 31-years old he's almost assuredly on the back end of his career at this point. Analysis: Matt Selz
Bears have signed DL David Carter to a one-year contract.
Carter will be, if he sticks with the team, should only be a deep bench option for the Bears defensive line squad. He was originally an undrafted free agent signed in 2011 by Arizona who most recently played in the preseason for Jacksonville last year. Carter has registered only 29 career tackles across four seasons in the NFL. Analysis: Matt Selz
NFL announces that Roger Goodell has upheld Tom Brady's four-game suspension.
A lack of cooperation with the investigation and no evidence showing he did not have knowledge of the deflation is what makes the suspension stick. Ted Wells, the NFL appointed investigator, requested texts and emails from Tom Brady which he did not only refuse to provide, he reportedly went so far as to destroy his personal cell phone. Brady and his legal team will now take this case to court in order to attempt to reduce the suspension and clear his sullied name, but that may backfire on Brady because he will then be legally required to turn over the texts and emails the league originally wanted. As of now he will miss the first four games but we will have to see what the courts decide. Analysis: Matt Selz
Sammy Watkins says he's going to be "full go" in practice when the Bills open training camp Friday.
Hype has followed Watkins from Clemson to Buffalo after being a high first round draft pick in the 2014 Draft and disappoint followed to a degree with an injury plagued rookie season. Watkins had surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip back in January and looks to break out this season in the new Bills scheme with Rex Ryan as head coach. The only hesitation about drafting Watkins this season should be that there is a serious lack of QB play in Buffalo right now with either Matt Cassel or E.J. Manuel being named a starter.

Muhammed Wilkerson will report to training camp Wednesday.
Wilkerson has decided to prove it on the field in 2015 that he is deserving of a mega deal next off-season when he becomes a free agent. He will receive $6.96 million in the final year of his rookie deal. If he does continue to be a dominant defensive lineman, he could command at least what the Saints Cameron Jordan received two-months ago which was five-years, $60 million dollars.
