The Packers will practice 20 times (including Family Night and joint sessions with the Texans) in training camp this year. That's five more than last year. While they'll close to the public earlier (Aug. 19 instead of Aug. 27 like last year), there are still more open to the public (16) this year.

Sources expect a new deal between the Saints and receiver Michael Thomas before the start of training camp, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini, who also reported that the Saints are comfortable making him the highest-paid receiver in the game. That last part should come as no surprise, considering Thomas has established himself as a first-team All-Pro. The bigger question is how much more Thomas will make than Odell Beckham Jr., who currently leads all receivers with an average salary between $18-19 million per year and a total of $65 million in guarantees.

The Raiders announced they signed first-round draft pick Clelin Ferrell, the No. 4 overall draft pick, to his rookie contract on Tuesday. That means that six of Oakland's draft picks are signed, leaving only first-rounders Josh Jacobs (No. 24 overall) and Johnathan Abram (No. 27 overall) and second-rounder Travon Mullen (No. 40 overall) as unsigned. All of the rookies took part in the team's offseason training program, though, with Ferrell and Abram getting reps with the first-team defense at defensive end and safety, respectively, and are finishing out the Raiders' player engagement program this week.
