Winston was competing with quarterback Mike Glennon for the starting role. Winston was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft and will receive the majority of the first-team repetitions during training camp.
"We brought him in here to be our quarterback," Smith said, per NFL.com.
The extension is for four years and $87.6 million. The deal includes a $31 million signing bonus and an estimated $60 million in guaranteed money. Wilson confirmed the four year extension on his Twitter account.
Wilson has one Super Bowl win and has thrown for 72 touchdowns with 26 interceptions in his three-year career.
Romo, who has battled back issues for the last several seasons, did not practice in more than consecutive days last training camp.
"I think we'll practice more this year than we did last year, but at the same time it's not out of the realm to go two-and-one sometimes (two days on, one off) and I think the plan is we'll have some where we go three in a row," Romo said. "We'll see how it goes."
Brady had been appealing the suspension after he was suspended for four games in May following his alleged involvement in under inflating game balls.
During the investigation, it was revealed that Brady destroyed his cell phone, which was allegedly used to communicate with equipment managers regarding the air pressure in the ball.
"[Roger] Goodell found that Brady's deliberate destruction of potentially relevant evidence went beyond a mere failure to cooperate in the investigation and supported a finding that he had sought to hide evidence of his own participation in the underlying scheme to alter the footballs," the NFL said in a statement.
Freeman is competing for a backup role on the team. He is a former first-round pick of the Buccaneers.
"A couple weeks ... I'm not sure," he told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review about a timetable for his return. "It's nothing serious. I am thankful that we have a long training camp and we have plenty of time."
Gradkowski will almost certainly be out when his team plays in the Hall of Fame Game on Aug. 9.
Pettine added that while he couldn't guarantee McCown would start in the season opener against the Jets, that the experienced signal-caller is firmly the team's top choice at the position heading into camp.
McCoy, who signed a one-year deal with Washington after starting one game last season, said he decided to return to the Redskins based on the coaching staff and not his chances to play this year. Even though Griffin is the incumbent, McCoy believes he could step in and contribute.
"I don't think I would be continuing to play if I didn't believe in my heart that I could start every week in this league," he said.
That is only one million annually less than what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is earning and he is the highest-paid player at his position in the NFL.
Wilson and his team remain at an impasse in contract negotiations with training camp set to open Friday.
He worked with quarterback guru and former NFL coach Jon Gruden last week in Tampa, sources have told WalterFootball.com. Manziel is trying to adapt his style and skill set into the NFL game. The sessions with Gruden were a combination of film study and working on mechanics.
Manziel suffered through a miserable rookie season, then checked himself into an alcohol rehab facility. He is currently the backup to starter Josh McCown, but his spring work has reportedly been unimpressive.
