Seahawks add OT Winston
The last of the Denver Broncos' defensive starters who missed the Super Bowl has been cleared to return to practice. Cornerback Chris Harris Jr., who tore his left ACL in the playoffs and underwent surgery after the season, passed his physical and was taken off the PUP list Tuesday. Second-year pro Kayvon Webster has been getting the bulk of the first-team snaps during the absence of Harris, who will ease back into the mix, doing individual and 7-on-7 drills at first. Harris' ligament wasn't completely torn when he got hurt against San Diego and the Broncos are optimistic he'll be able to return to the starting lineup by the season opener Sept. 7 against Indianapolis and resume his role as a leader on Denver's defense.
Eric Winston signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, who envision the eight-year veteran at right tackle. In addition to signing Winston, the Seahawks placed wide receiver Taylor Price on injured reserve, released cornerback Chandler Fenner and guard Bronson Irwin and signed wide receiver Randall Carroll and cornerback Terrell Thomas. Thomas, a USC product recruited by Carroll, was a second-round pick of the New York Giants in 2008. ---Arizona Cardinals linebacker John Abraham remained absent from training camp on Tuesday and the team had no indication as to when he might show up.
Rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Giants coach Tom Coughlin got together before practice on Tuesday and shared their levels of frustration. The first-round draft choice out of LSU has been sidelined since the first day of training camp when he aggravated a hamstring injury. ''We just had a discussion, player/coach,'' Coughlin said. When you're cleared to play you'll be ready to go and you'll earn the respect of your teammates by virtue of what you do on the field and how well you study and work right now.'' Beckham went to see a doctor on Monday and was limited to catching punts on Tuesday.
MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -- Captain Munnerlyn started his first training camp with the Minnesota Vikings away from the action and on the sideline, placed on the physically unable to perform list so he could work his way through a minor hamstring injury.
It was a sight the New York Giants hoped they would never see. With about 10 minutes remaining in practice Tuesday, running back David Wilson was spotted walking off the field with head trainer Ronnie Barnes after suffering what coach Tom Coughlin described as a "burner." Wilson was just cleared for contact on July 21, the first day of training camp, after recovering from neck surgery. Wilson, whose neck issues first came to light in the Giants' Week 5 loss in Philadelphia last year, was placed on season-ending injured reserve.
Eric Winston signed a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, who envision the eight-year veteran at right tackle. Winston confirmed the signing via Twitter on Tuesday. In addition to signing Winston, the Seahawks placed wide receiver Taylor Price on injured reserve, released cornerback Chandler Fenner and guard Bronson Irwin and signed wide receiver Randall Carroll and cornerback Terrell Thomas.

For a two-time Super Bowl champion, Eli Manning enters his 11th season with the New York Giants with as much to prove as almost any quarterback in the NFL. He has plenty of football left in him at just 33 years old, but Manning is being challenged to make several changes in a new offense following a dreadful 2013 season in which he posted a 69.4 passer rating and was sacked 39 times - both easily career low water marks in nine years as a starter. New offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo is installing his version of the West Coast offense he learned as part of Mike McCarthy's staff in Green Bay. "We want to raise his completion percentage for sure," said quarterbacks coach Danny Langsdorf.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Mario Manningham attended his first NFL training camp in 2008 as a third-round draft pick of the New York Giants, basically secured of his place on the team's opening day roster.
