1. MONEY: QBs Joe Flacco, Aaron Rodgers, Tony Romo, Tom Brady and Matt Stafford signed new deals that will pay them as much as a combined $442 million. Matt Ryan and Jay Cutler soon will raise that total to well over half a billion bucks. And after acquiring him from trade with Jets, the Bucs will pay CB Darrelle Revis $96M over the next six years.

2. ACHILLES LAST STRAND: San Francisco’s No.1 WR Michael Crabtree tore his right Achilles tendon in late May and likely is done for the year. Huge loss for Niners.

3. FREE BYRD: Buffalo’s top-notch deep safety Jairus Byrd held out all spring, and so far has refused to sign his franchise tag, a $6.9M salary. With the window for a long-term contract now closed, he might hold out.
