Clay cannot participate with the team until he comes off the PUP list. He's got a long injury history, so expect the team to ease him back into action. Ricky Seals-Jones is the top tight end for the Cardinals.

Denver Broncos QB Joe Flacco threw three interceptions during practice Saturday, July 20.

Flacco had a bad day of practice for the Broncos. They were in full pads for the first time and are still without Emmanuel Sanders for team drills. Flacco is generally safe with the football but was taking chances today that did not pay off.

5. DEN - River Cracraft to miss some time

Denver Broncos WR River Cracraft (oblique) is expected to be sidelined for at least a week because of an oblique injury.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Cracraft is unlikely to make the final roster. He's a slot receiver only and the Broncos have a nice group of young talented receivers behind Courtland Sutton and Emmanuel Sanders. The Broncos have five preseason games this year as they play in the Hall of Fame Game in a little over a week. We'll see if Cracraft is cleared by that time.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers first-round draft choice LB Devin White agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Buccaneers Saturday, July 20. Financial terms were not disclosed, but the deal includes a fifth-year option.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Devin White is an athletic player who can cover and hit. He has perennial Pro Bowl potential due to his physical skill set and football intelligence. White should start and star for the Buccaneers from day one.

7. DEN - Denver officially signs Jamarius Way

Updating a previous report, undrafted free-agent WR Jamarius Way (South Alabama) signed with the Denver Broncos Saturday, July 20. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Way is a big-bodied possession receiver. He's not fast but knows how to use his frame to keep defenders away from the ball. Way is a long-shot for the roster and should be angling for a spot on the practice squad.
