Suffice to say it’s been a very interesting week for the NFL. We’ll be seeing lots of new faces in different uniforms this upcoming season, and it’ll take a little getting used to. That said, let’s check out today’s headlines and see what’s happening out there in the world of pro football.

Veteran Kenny Britt inked a deal with the Rams yesterday, re-signing with the team on a two-year contract.
Britt was in St. Louis last year, grabbing 48 balls for 748 yards and three scores.

USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys added a fullback to their roster yesterday, inking Ray Agnew to a deal. He played 12 games for the Browns in 2014, but was used minimally as a ball-carrier.

Now let’s get on with the big news item in the NFL yesterday. The Dolphins cut their losses on WR Mike Wallace, trading him and a seventh-rounder to the Vikings for a fifth-round pick.
Wallace caught 67 balls for 862 yards and 10 scores last year, but has ultimately failed to live up to his mammoth five-year, $60 million deal with Miami he signed two years ago.
As for the Vikings, they’ll get another big-play receiver alongside the talented Cordarrelle Patterson.

The Broncos and G Shelley Smith agreed to terms yesterday. He was cut by the aforementioned Dolphins after one year in Miami. This new deal with Denver is going for $5.65 million over two years.
Smith has been ravaged by injuries in his five NFL years, so his first priority will be staying healthy.

In a minor deal yesterday, the Raiders inked free agent Steven Clark, a punter who was undrafted this past year, spending his college time in Auburn.
Clark and Marquette King will battle it out for the Raiders’ punter job.
