 width=The Chicago Bears signed guard Tyler Moore to a three-year contract Friday.

An undrafted rookie out of Florida, he appeared in 19 games with 14 starts over two seasons with the Gators. He spent the 2011 season at Nebraska, where he made four starts while playing in nine games.

>>Bills Suspend OL Coach Kromer

The Buffalo Bills suspended offensive line coach Aaron Kromer without pay for the first six games of the regular season for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Bills President Russ Brandon announced the suspension Sunday night. The disciplinary action comes two days after prosecutors in Florida dropped a battery charge for causing bodily harm against Kromer for allegedly confronting two boys for using his beach chairs, pushing one to the ground and punching him in the face last month.

An arrest report released by the Walton County Sheriff's Office said Kromer threatened to kill one of the boy's families if he reported the incident.

The Bills placed Kromer on paid leave July 14, two days after he was arrested. Kromer, however, will rejoin the team at training camp.

The Bills did not reveal when Kromer was scheduled to arrive at camp in suburban Rochester, where the team completed its third day of practice on Sunday.

Kromer's suspension will begin Sept. 7, in the week leading up to the Bills' regular-season opener against Indianapolis. The suspension will run through Buffalo's game against Cincinnati on Oct. 18.

>>Dallas WR Bryant Involved in Heated Scuffle

Dez Bryant kept going after Dallas cornerback Tyler Patmon in a heated training camp skirmish that didn't end until quarterback Tony Romo finally stepped in and calmed his star receiver.

Bryant, who has a history of sideline antics that include screaming at coaches and teammates, threw something at Patmon and later appeared to take a swing at him after the two tangled during a play in 11-on-11 work late in the practice Sunday.

The incident started when Patmon jarred Bryant's helmet loose during a play and Bryant responded by yanking off Patmon's helmet. Patmon threw a punch and backed away, and Bryant came back with a wild left hook before teammates separated them. The Cowboys posted video of the exchange on their website.

Tight end Jason Witten was among those who couldn't get Bryant to walk away. Romo eventually came over and got Bryant to move to a different part of the sideline, while Patmon stood with players and other team personnel nearby.

Bryant, the biggest star in this camp because he recently signed a five-year, $70 million contract that ended his threat not to show up, said he and Patmon exchanged words for several plays before the skirmish that had several teammates trying to separate them.

When practice ended a few minutes later, coach Jason Garrett spoke briefly to Bryant, who then walked over to Patmon and hugged him while fans nearby cheered after earlier yelling at Bryant to calm down.

"I got a little bit overheated," Bryant said. "At the end of the day, that's something that you really need for a team, on a team. I'm just trying to win ballgames."
