The Miami Dolphins and free agent quarterback Jay Cutler are discussing a potential contract, according to a report from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport. There is no deal in place, according to Rapoport, but the Dolphins have made it clear that Cutler is their top choice in their current search for a quarterback.
Receiver Chris Conley and cornerback De’Vante Bausby got into it after a pass route and had to separated by cornerback coach Al Harris, and the same happened with tight end Ross Travis and cornerback Marcus Peters. Their interaction was particularly interesting, as Travis was running a fade in the end zone and appeared to push off on Peters. Peters took exception to that, yelling that Travis keeps pushing off while Travis yelled back that Peters keeps holding him
“When I’m on the field against an opponent, I just try my best to pretty much embarrass the guy in front of me,” Logan said. “That’s if they run, pass, whatever’s called for. It’s my job to be destructive up front.”
I can’t tell who was saying what but someone was upset about all the pushing (I think it was Peters). They jawed back and forth for a second, got in each other’s faces and then it was over.

For the long term, the Chiefs would be better-served finding a veteran to fill the position. Their best option at this late date might be a quarterback who is already in their camp, though he's not here in a playing capacity.
Michael Vick is serving as a coaching intern at training camp. He's 37 and hasn't played since 2015, when he got into five games for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“I was helping him out with his recovery,” Johnson explained Thursday after practice. “I was Facetiming with him (during rehab), so it’s kind of ironic he’s on the team now. He’s a nose (tackle) sort of guy, but a strong guy who can help us.
“There (are) a lot of questions out there,” he said. “But I think at the same time the league is taking measures. We’ve seen over the past couple years that the league has put a lot of money into research.”
"Our run defense wasn't good," said linebacker Derrick Johnson, who missed the final three games last season because of a torn Achilles tendon. "When I was out there, it wasn't that good, either.
We’re almost at the point to where it’s expected that at least a few times each day we’ll see a deep touchdown pass from Alex Smith to Tyreek Hill.
We saw it again Friday.
As it’s been reported all of camp, the notion that Hill is simply a speed player is selling him short.
Signed as a free agent in late May, Streater has turned heads through the first week of training camp. In what is a wide-open competition for jobs behind Watkins and rookie Zay Jones, Streater has put himself squarely in the mix.
“He's one of the highlights of camp so far,” coach Sean McDermott said. “Big, strong wide receiver. Did a nice job of digesting the system in a short amount of time. His role on not only the offense, but also special teams factors into the entire evaluation. He's done a nice job. I look forward to continuing to watch him.”
“He’s just so gosh-darned deserving,” said Jan Stenerud, the long-time Kansas City Chiefs kicker who preceded Andersen into the hall.
Whoa moment: Mahomes again underestimated the playmaking ability of linebacker Reshard Cliett. Cliett covered a lot of ground to break up a pass during a 7-on-7 drill. Cliett did the same thing against Mahomes in offseason practice and that play resulted in an interception.
“Everyone leads differently,” Conley said. “Mac had his own style of leadership. Mine is a little bit different. I will talk to guys one-on-one, not necessarily be a rah-rah guy in front of the whole group.
“Mentally, picking up and taking all the information that they were giving me the first year kind of had me in a whirlwind, trying to figure it out as I go,” Murray said. “But now, I’m a little bit more familiar with what we’ve got going on and how everything marries up. I think that’s the biggest improvement.
The Chiefs made another roster move Thursday morning as the team waived safety Jordan Sterns (per the Chiefs’ transaction wire) in order to make room for newly-signed defensive tackle Roy Miller.
