One-year deal for $12 million according to Ian Rapoport. Good for the Jets. Too late to update anything in our book, though.

Per Ian Rapoport on Twitter. Suspended for the first four games, but Josh Gordon is eligible to play after that. The talented and troubled receiver finished ninth in receiving DYAR in 2013, but played just five games in 2014 and did not play in 2015.

It's not yet official because of an appeal, but Le'Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for another violation of league drug policy. This time, it's for missing a test, not for failing one. A four-game suspension would be a big deal, both for real football (Pittsburgh is a leading Super Bowl contender) and fantasy football (depending on your league scoring, Bell or Todd Gurley will be the No. 1 running back in our KUBIAK projections before considering the suspension).

J.J. Watt suffered a herniated disc working out this week and had to undergo back surgery, and will be out 6-10 weeks. Reports now seem to be leaning on the longer side of that range, which would keep Watt out for the first few weeks of the season. This could be hugely impactful, given how close the AFC South is. There's no division where the four teams are closer together in quality right now. You also have to remember that the Texans still aren't sure who is going to replace Jared Crick. Now they might need two new 5-technique ends for the first month of the season. Yikes.

The Saints were 2016's oldest team, and the Rams were once again the youngest. Are more rookies starting than ever before in the NFL? 2016 was the youngest season we have tracked yet.
