NFL news roundup: Latest league updates from Thursday, July 28

On Saturday, July 30, NFL Network will present Training Camp: Back Together Saturday. Beginning at 9 a.m. ET, more than 50 analysts, reporters and team correspondents will provide 13 hours of live coverage from training camps across the NFL -- plus, check out NFL Films-produced wired sound of players and coaches in action.

Antonio Gandy-Golden has decided to retire from football after two seasons in the NFL.

Washington Commanders coach Ron Rivera announced Thursday that Gandy-Golden will be returning to school to finish his education instead of continuing his playing career.

A fourth-round pick by Washington in 2020, Gandy-Golden produced just one catch for three yards during his two seasons. His career highlight was a 22-yard run during his rookie season. The former Liberty standout had 150 receptions for 2,433 yards and 20 touchdowns in his two collegiate seasons. Listed at 6-foot-4, 223 pounds, Gandy-Golden was early in his transition to tight end this season but the project ends during the first week of training camp.

Gandy-Golden's immediate absence brings opportunity in Washington with starting TE Logan Thomas still on the PUP list recovering from a knee injury. John Bates, Sammis Reyes and rookies Cole Turner and Curtis Hodges will be duking it out for a roster spot.
