CLEVELAND (AP) Deshaun Watson's week included meeting with NFL investigators and golf in the Bahamas with his new Browns teammates.

Next week he'll be back on the field, and under more public scrutiny.

Some of the women who have accused Cleveland's quarterback of sexual misconduct during massage therapy sessions while he was with Houston have been interviewed by HBO's "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel."


Ravens P Koch retires, will join staff

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Longtime Ravens punter Sam Koch retired Thursday and will join the Baltimore coaching staff as a special teams consultant.

A 16-year veteran, Koch, 39, appeared in a franchise-record 256 regular-season games, 239 consecutively from 2006-20, also a team record. He was a member of Baltimore's 2012 Super Bowl championship team, and appeared in 20 postseason games.


Giants' Jones unfazed by contract status

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Daniel Jones has rarely given any insight into his feelings in his three seasons as the New York Giants starting quarterback.

So it was no surprise Thursday when the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 draft shrugged off how he felt after the Giants refused last month to pick up his fifth-year option on his rookie contract.


New program aims to boost minority hires

Something wasn't working.

Even though the NFL attempted to enhance opportunities for minority candidates to become head coaches in a league whose players are 70% Black, there was a disconnect. Same thing for front office positions, although more improvement had been seen in recent years in that area.


CB Bradberry joins Eagles on 1-year deal

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles strengthened their secondary, agreeing on a one-year contract with veteran cornerback James Bradberry on Wednesday.

Bradberry, who made the Pro Bowl in 2020, was released by the New York Giants on May 9 for salary reasons. He would have been a $21.9 million cap hit.


Jaguars hire Waugh as assistant GM

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars formally hired Ethan Waugh as the team's assistant general manager on Wednesday.

Waugh, who had been rumored to be in line for the job for more than a month, worked alongside current Jaguars general manager Trent Baalke for a dozen seasons (2005-16) in San Francisco. Waugh served as the 49ers' senior personnel assistant (2012-14) and senior player personnel coordinator (2015-17) while Baalke was GM in San Francisco.


Bills offer support at site of shooting

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo resident Jamie Lash was giddy as Buffalo Bills player Josh Thomas draped his arm around her shoulder and smiled for a picture Wednesday. It was a rare moment of lightness in a week spent mourning the violent deaths of 10 people at the Tops supermarket where she used to work.

"It means unity. It means support," Lash said, adjusting the Bills cap someone else from the team had placed on her head.


Jets sign Wilson; last of 3 1st-rounders

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Jets signed wide receiver Garrett Wilson to a four-year, $20.55 million deal Wednesday, the last of the team's three first-round draft picks to get under contract.

Wilson was the No. 10 overall pick last month out of Ohio State. He's expected to be an immediate contributor as a rookie, giving second-year quarterback Zach Wilson a speedy vertical threat in what should be an improved offense.


Chargers sign veteran DL Fox

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Chargers continued the offseason rebuild of their defense by signing defensive lineman Morgan Fox on Wednesday.

Fox will be entering his seventh year in the league. He spent his first five seasons with the Rams (2016-20) before going to the Carolina Panthers last year.
