What are the Ravens' competitors up to this week?

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

With the start of training camps and the preseason officially under way, it's been a very busy week in Baltimore. While the Ravens have been bustling with news and developments, so have their league counterparts.

The Seahawks have agreed to a four-year $87.5 million extension with their franchise quarterback Russell Wilson. The Seahawks also wish to reach an extension with linebacker Bobby Wagner, who acknowledges that not everyone can get paid. Strong Safety Kam Chancellor is holding out for more money.

The Saints have released linebacker Junior Galette due to several off-the-field issues. The Washington Redskins signed him to a one year contract for the league minimum yesterday. Galette used his girlfriends' Twitter to express his NSFW thoughts on his release.

In the 'Big Apple', rookie WR Devin Smith has suffered a rib injury and will miss the rest of Jets training camp. The already suspended Jets defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson was arrested earlier for driving 143 miles per hour and resisting arrest. Inside his car was a 12 year old, marijuana, and a gun.

Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry is cancer-free and cleared to practice. From all of us here at Baltimore Beatdown, congratulations Eric.

Now to the rookies. To the surprise of no one, Jameis Winston has been named the Buccaneers starting quarterback and Marcus Mariota has been named the Titans starter.

Buffalo was rumbling with news this week. The charges against Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer have been dropped. The team's fullback, Jerome Felton believes that LeSean McCoy will run for 2,000 yards in 2015. Wide receiver Percy Harvin has been doing some practice at cornerback. Between Tyrod Taylor, Matt Cassel, and E.J. Manuel, the Bills have still not found a definite starter at quarterback. Expect this battle to rage on throughout camp and the preseason.
