Browns sign RB Willis McGahee
The Browns have signed free agent running back Willis McGahee, giving them a capable veteran after trading Trent Richardson.
The 31-year-old McGahee, who spent last season with Denver, passed his physical Thursday as the Browns were practicing. He brings much-needed experience after the Browns dealt Richardson to Indianapolis on Wednesday. It's not yet known if McGahee will play Sunday when the Browns visit Minnesota.
McGahee worked out for the New York Giants last week, but the team elected not to sign him.
A two-time Pro Bowl selection, McGahee led the Broncos with 731 rushing yards last season. He's been a remarkably durable back during his 9-year NFL career despite suffering a serious knee injury in his final game in college at Miami.
McGahee has rushed for 8,097 yards with Buffalo, Baltimore and Denver, which released him in June.
Revis: 'Zero truth' he has issues with Schiano
Darrelle Revis has plenty of reasons to get along with Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano, including a hefty contract that makes him the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL.
So, the three-time All-Pro took it upon himself to meet with Schiano this week to stress there's "zero truth" to talk that he has a problem with the way the Bucs are using him in a revamped defense that's struggled to stop opponents late in games.
Revis made a name for himself as a shutdown cornerback in six seasons with the New York Jets, routinely holding some of the league's top receivers in check while discouraging quarterbacks from even attempting to throw to his side of the field.
Although he's played some man coverage since joining the Bucs in an offseason trade, there also have been key plays when he's not been assigned to shadow the other team's best receiver.
Revis, who sat out the preseason while recovering from knee surgery that sidelined him most of last season, said he's OK with what he's been asked to do.
"Why wouldn't I be happy here? They gave me an opportunity coming off my injury to play football again, so I'm excited to be here," the two-time Pro Bowl selection said. "At the end of the day, all I want to do is win games here."
The Bucs obtained Revis in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this year's draft and gave him a new six-year, $96 million contract.
With Tampa Bay off to an 0-2 start after losing the past two weeks on last-second field goals, Revis said everyone has an opinion about what's gone wrong.
He reached out to Schiano on Tuesday, an off-day for players, visiting the coach's office to let him know that there was no truth to speculation that he was upset after not being lined up to cover New Orleans' Marques Colston on a 31-yard reception that moved the Saints into position to kick a field goal for a 16-14 victory last Sunday.
"I think it comes with us being 0-2 and people start to say rumors here and there, but everything's fine. We're just trying to stick together as a team and get ready for this week," Revis said.
Sproles: Bucs' Goldson was trying to hurt him
Darren Sproles says Tampa Bay's Dashon Goldson delivered a dirty hit when the defensive back was penalized for a blow to the Saints' running back's head.
Sproles has watched replays of the hit and says Goldson has a history of delivering "dirty" hits, adding, "He tried to hurt me on the play, but he didn't."
Goldson was fined $100,000 for the personal foul, which was called on an incomplete pass over the middle.
Goldson also was initially suspended for a game, then reinstated on appeal. He has said he's an aggressive player, but never intends to hurt anybody.
RT Fluker suffers concussion, unable to practice
The San Diego Chargers offensive line could take a hit before it takes the field on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Right tackle D. J. Fluker was unable to practice on Thursday, one day after suffering a concussion in practice. Fluker, the team's top pick in this year's draft, had started the first two games for the Chargers.
Fluker was injured late in Wednesday's practice and the concussion was diagnosed after the workout, said coach Mike McCoy.
"It's just one of those things where we will see how he is tomorrow morning and go from there," McCoy said.
McCoy wouldn't say if Fluker's backup, Mike Harris, would start if Fluker is unable to go.
Offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt was more direct, saying, "The next guy has to step up and play." He added that no one was saying Fluker is out.
Would the next guy up be Harris?
"Yes," Whisenhunt said.
Whisenhunt also mentioned that right guard Jeromey Clary could return to right tackle, where he started 46 games before being moved inside this offseason.
