The NFL offseason is over, as training camps are now underway for multiple NFL teams. That means the rumor mill will start to heat up again as teams deal with holdouts, extensions, new signings and injuries. Here are all the latest NFL rumors you need to know.
Gareon Conley Latest
The Raiders have signed Gareon Conley, so with his contract situation out of the way, the focus turns to his legal situation. According to one report, a grand jury will soon make a decision on Conley.

Grand jury could decide in days if there should be charges in Conley case or if there's not enough evidence— Ed Gallek (@edgallekfox8) July 28, 2017
Ian Rapoport says Conley doesn't know if that report is true, because police haven't told Conley and his camp if the grand jury is meeting. However, the Raiders and Conley believe nothing will come of the case, which is why the Raiders took him in the first round. In the meantime, Conley has been placed on the PUP list. He joins OL Jon Feliciano and DL Jihad Ward, while DE Mario Edwards and LB Bruce Irvin are on the NFI list. Edwards' injury history might cause some Raiders' fans to worry, but he and the rest of the players' placement on the lists appear to be only precautionary.
Matt Stafford Extension
The next quarterback to get paid is going to be Matt Stafford of the Detroit Lions. The two sides are in contract discussions.

The 29-year-old QB's new contract will likely top the five-year, $125 million contract with $70.2 million guaranteed that Derek Carr got from the Oakland Raiders. Stafford is coming off a good season in Detroit, completing 65.3 percent of his passes for 4,327, 24 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Andrew Luck Health
This will, understandably, concern Colts fans: Andrew Luck said he won't commit to play in the regular season opener.
"It's hard for me to look beyond, really, today's rehab session," Luck told the Indianapolis Star. "That's the approach I have to take ... if you want to get truly healthy. If you want to get better than you were before the injury."
That's worrisome, but Luck tried to calm any concerns.
"There's no reason to freak out," Luck said. "I don't know what day it's going to be, I don't know what week, I don't know when, but I definitely will be (better)."
The Colts' offense needs Luck healthy to be productive. The backups are Scott Tolzien, former UDFA Stephen Morris and rookie UDFA Phillip Walker.
Corey Davis Signs
The last of the unsigned NFL draft picks has agreed to a contract.

The move by the Titans and Davis ensures there will be no Joey Bosa-type holdout this year. Davis will be expected to play a key role in a Titans' offense that upgraded the weaponry for QB Marcus Mariota.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
