Second-round pick Reggie Ragland has been calling the plays at rookie minicamp this week. Those two will compete for the starting middle linebacker job, though Brown appears to have the early edge. The Bills struggled in Ryan's scheme last year, forcing him to simplify the playbook this offseason.

Amendola is signing a new two-year, $7.35 million deal with another $750K available in bonuses and incentives. He was initially scheduled to make $12 million over the next two seasons.

Trae Waynes to open season as No. 5 corner? 05-06-2016
Trae Waynes CB MIN
Second-year CB Trae Waynes may open the season as the Vikings' No. 5 corner.

ESPN.com
Waynes was initially projected to start opposite Xavier Rhodes, but the Vikings opted to re-sign 38-year-old Terence Newman and select Mackensie Alexander in the second round of last weekend's draft. Rhodes and Newman are expected to start outside, with Captain Munnerlyn in the slot and Alexander as the dime back. Waynes didn't show well across 215 rookie-year snaps after being the 11th overall pick. He may have to wait until 2017 for a chance to start.
