The Wednesday Blitz (8/7): News, Notes and Links from Around the NFL

In this video, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham says his weight is currently up to 273 pounds as he tries to become more of a "complete" tight end.

For those keeping track (and ESPN's Chris Mortensen was), Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was 44-for-48 in all drills combined yesterday in the Patriots-Eagles joint practice.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports tweeted last night that "... Willis McGahee is in great shape. As injuries inevitably mount at RB during preseason, I expect him to get some calls."

Colts wide receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (knee) participated in passing drills on Tuesday night.

Stanford University is going to retire John Elway's No. 7 at halftime of the game against Oregon on November 7th.

Browns second-year running back Trent Richardson is not expected to participate in Thursday's preseason game, per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Naming a possible breakout player, Colts general manager Ryan Grigson first mentioned second-year tight end Coby Fleener. Grigson said, "he’s a guy that you knew had speed, had size being six-six and running 4.51 [seconds in the 40-yard dash]. You know he could be a tough mismatch downfield because he could play above the rim.”

The Cowboys have agreed to a one-year deal with guard Brandon Moore, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Ex-Rams wide receiver Isaac Bruce said of second-year Rams receiver Brian Quick: "Man, he has it all. He has speed, he has the physique, he has huge hands. The guy can run and get down the field and he can get out of his break. That’s the biggest thing in this league is being able to transition.”

Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a day to forget yesterday as he threw four interceptions in practice.

Panthers quarterback Cam Newton appears to be doing a good job building rapport with his teammates.

Jaguars wide receiver Cecil Shorts may miss the team's preseason opener against the Dolphins on Friday due to a strained left calf.

In case you missed it, you should see this DirecTV rap video, Football on your Phone, featuring Peyton Manning and Eli Manning.

Colts safety LaRon Landry (knee) sat out of last night's practice, but coach Chuck Pagano said it wasn't serious and that he could return to practice on Thursday.

Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will start the team's preseason opener. Either way, I expect Geno Smith to start sooner rather than later.
