The team converted $1.5 million worth of bonuses and incentives into a higher base salary, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports, enticing Beast Mode into ending his brief holdout.
Here's what else you need to know from Thursday's training camp action:
- Despite conventional wisdom to the contrary, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said neither Brian Hoyer nor Johnny Manzielhas an early edge in the Browns' quarterback competition. General manager Ray Farmer told Rapoport that the decision will come down to "in-the-game performance," rendering early training-camp practices essentially meaningless. Again, this one is far from over.
- While Lynch's long-term future is a question mark in Seattle, David Wilson's status is a more pressing concern in New York. Coach Tom Coughlin is "just praying" that Wilson's surgically repaired neck is OK after suffering a "burner" in Wednesday's practice. One unnamed source with knowledge of the running back's medical condition told NJ.com that Wilson "needs a miracle" to return.
