07:38 AM ET 04.24 | To kick things off, the Seahawks will host Green Bay on Thursday, Sept. 4. However, it's the only time this year the defending Super Bowl champions will be at home for a nationally televised prime-time game. The Seahawks have four prime-time games on their schedule this season. But after the season opener against the Packers, Seattle has to play on the road for their remaining three nationally televised games. ... According to a league source, the NFL was wary of putting Seahawks home games on in prime-time due to their track record of blowouts in nationally televised games played in Seattle the last several seasons. The last three times Seattle has hosted a prime-time match-up, the games have been extremely uncompetitive.

Lions are afraid of Suh

07:37 AM ET 04.24 | Maybe the answer is simple. The Lions don't have the backbone to tell Ndamukong Suh he's wrong. They're scared. They're trembling in fear about alienating one of their few impact players in the last year of his rookie contract that they've compromised their self-respect. Try as they could in diminishing the residual effects of Suh blowing off the opening day of the voluntary three-day minicamp Tuesday, it was inescapable that Suh is making the organization look foolish with his blatant lack of regard of a new coach attempting -- again -- to instill a new, winning culture. "I think I've addressed his situation clearly and enough," coach Jim Caldwell said following Tuesday's first workout. "Let's talk about some other things." Nice try, Coach, but nothing else is worth talking about right now.

07:37 AM ET 04.24 | On the one hand, Mike Wallace can see the benefits of Miami's voluntary offseason program. It's a great way to build camaraderie. But in truth, Wallace and Ryan Tannehill won't really make their much-needed strides until much later in the summer, he believes. "Right now, always good to get chemistry going with your quarterback," Wallace said. ... "But I don't think it's going to really make a difference. It's going to make a difference when we get guys in front of us and start lining up." Wallace means what he says. He was fine missing the first day of the spring sessions Monday to be with his family, instead choosing to show up for Day 2. What he found in his return to Miami: A whole new offense, one that he believes is better suited to his strengths. "My style: Big-play offense," Wallace said.

07:36 AM ET 04.24 | Consider Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan a glutton for punishment this offseason. Eating tin foil. Stepping on marbles. Either could have more enjoyable than what [Trevathan] did several times this offseason. He clicked on the TV. Hit play. Of the Super Bowl. "I recorded the game and watched it a lot. But it's not about what I can do then, it's about what I can do now," Trevathan said. ... "During the offseason that's all I thought about was getting back there." Left tackle Ryan Clady is returning from a Lisfranc injury in his left foot. The Broncos are expected to take it slowly with Clady, targeting the season opener for return. He believes the Broncos can make it back to the Super Bowl. They would be the first team to lose the Super Bowl and return the following year since the Buffalo Bills in 1993.

Bucs won't pick up Clayborn's option

07:34 AM ET 04.24 | It appears Adrian Clayborn will have a decision to make. The agent for [Clayborn], Blake Baratz, said Wednesday the Bucs informed him they won't pick up a $6.96 million option for the defensive end for 2015, a decision that benefits the team and their 2011 first-round draft pick. The Bucs can still sign Clayborn to a long-term extension -- and could still cut him next spring even if they exercised the option -- but a breakout season could set him up for a big payday as an unrestricted free agent next year. "It doesn't matter either way to me," Clayborn said. "Even if they did give it to me, it's not guaranteed. I just have to come out and have a good year. "Either way, it works out for itself." Clayborn, 25, had 5.5 sacks in 2013 after missing much of the previous year with a torn ACL.
