    Cowboys' Tony Romo: Has not had conversations with team yet
    13h ago

    Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones is expected to make the decision on the future of Tony Romo soon, but Jones said he has not yet spoken with the veteran quarterback, Charean William of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    It was previously reported that the two sides would speak before the NFL Scouting Combine, and that begins Tuesday. Rookie Dak Prescott stepped in for the injured veteran and had a magical season. Prescott is expected to start in 2017, but it is possible the veteran Romo could be kept around as insurance. It would likely take a pay cut to make that happen. Vegas even has odds on Romo's 2017 team, and the Dallas Cowboys are considered the favorite (along with the Broncos).

    Trevor Siemian (shoulder) likely won't be able to practice in full before training camp, Brandon Stokley of 104.3 The Fan Denver reports.

    Siemian's first season as the Denver Broncos ' nominal starting QB was characterized by flashes in the beginning, a third-degree separation in his left shoulder in Week 4, and generally uninspiring play thereafter. Ringing in with the 25th-best completion percentage (59.5) by campaign's end, he racked up 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions across 14 games. He'll now be working under new head coach Vance Joseph, who has proclaimed that Siemian and 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch will vie for the No. 1 spot on the depth chart this offseason. If Siemian is indeed unable to put together an unhinged practice in the offseason program, it's safe to say that he'll be behind the eight ball in the competition.

While the Arizona product racked up a career-low 17 tackles and zero sacks last season, he could be in line for a rebound in 2017 if he can secure the Niners' first-string nose tackle job this summer; the incumbent starting nose tackle, Glenn Dorsey, is set to hit unrestricted free agency.

    After passing what NFL.com describes as "a battery of tests" on his left ACL and Grade 2 MCL sprain, Ryan Tannehill is slated to be available for the Miami Dolphins ' upcoming offseason program.

    Meanwhile, the Miami Herald confirms that Tannehill will not require reconstructive surgery to address the knee issue that cost the starting QB the Dolphins' last three regular-season games in 2016, as well as the team's postseason loss to the Steelers. While Tannehill is expected to utilize a knee brace throughout the 2017 season, the report adds that barring any setbacks, the signal-caller is in line to handle a full workload by the start of training camp this summer. Tannehill may, however, be limited to some degree during the squad's offseason practices leading up to that.

    Buccaneers' Jameis Winston: Talks up DeSean Jackson as possible acquisition
    3d ago

    Jameis Winston recently provided a strong endorsement for a potential Bucs acquisition of free-agent receiver DeSean Jackson, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I've met him before, and we want DeSean. You better believe we want DeSean here," Winston said. "I think he would be a great asset to our team."

    Winston's comments came in response to a question stemming from ESPN.com's Josina Anderson's report that the Bucs could be a possible destination for Jackson in free agency. Winston set new personal bests across the board in his sophomore campaign, but did so while seeing his wide receiver corps considerably handicapped by injuries, especially in the second half of the season. With veteran No. 2 receiver Vincent Jackson one of the wideouts that was sidelined for an extended period for a second consecutive season, Winston seems buoyed by the prospect of what a healthy speed merchant like DeSean Jackson could bring to the offense opposite Mike Evans. The 30-year-old Jackson had 56 catches for 1,005 yards and four touchdowns with the Redskins in 2016, eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark for the third time in four years and sporting the highest YPC (17.9) in the NFL for all receivers with a minimum of 30 receptions.

    Derek Carr (fibula) is approaching 100 percent health, NFL.com reports. "[He's] Walking around already, stretching it out," his brother, David Carr, said on NFL Total Access on Tuesday. "He can't do a lot for the bone, but he's going to be back. He'll get a whole full offseason in, and that's going to be the best part."

    David was backing up the assessment of Oakland Raiders left tackle Donald Penn, who learned from Derek himself that he's "almost 100 percent." Prior to breaking his right fibula in Week 16, the younger Carr had put everything together in his third season, leading the Raiders to a 12-3 record and falling 63 yards short of the first 4,000-yard campaign of his career. As intimated by his brother, Derek is expected to be good to go for the offseason program, which can kick off for the Raiders as early as April 17.

    Bears' Jay Cutler: Will likely be able to pass physical in March

    Jay Cutler (shoulder) is expected to be healthy enough to pass a physical in March, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Since undergoing surgery on a partially torn labrum in his right shoulder on Dec. 3, Cutler has been committed to rehabilitation. Along the way, Jeff Dickerson of ESPN.com reported in early January that Cutler was ahead of schedule in his recovery effort, and Rapoport's sources lend credence to the situation. More pressing for Cutler is where he'll be suiting up in 2017. The Chicago Bears have opened trade talks for the 11-year veteran, but the fact that Cutler has no guaranteed money in his current contract could complicate matters if his landing spot is unsatisfactory. By all accounts, though, he's played his last down as a member of the Bears.

  • Derrick Henry TEN RB
    Titans' Derrick Henry: Modest role likely in 2017
    2d ago

    Derrick Henry is expected to play second fiddle to DeMarco Murray (foot) out of the Tennessee Titans ' backfield next season. On Wednesday, head coach Mike Mularkey confirmed as much, calling Murray "the guy," according to Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

    Despite admitting that he played through a torn plantar plate in his right foot in 2016, Murray still gobbled up 81 percent of the Titans' offensive snaps, which translated to 20-plus touches in 11 of 16 games. Meanwhile, Henry's earned 25 percent of such snaps, churning out 490 yards and five touchdowns on his 110 carries. The Titans' run-first mentality should afford him a similar workload in his second season, but a serious injury to Murray may be the only way Henry is truly unleashed.

    Titans' DeMarco Murray: Top RB in Tennessee

    Head coach Mike Mularkey considers DeMarco Murray (foot) to be "the guy" in the Tennessee Titans ' backfield, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. "He has shown he is the guy and he will continue to be that guy," Mularkey said Wednesday.

    Mularkey was asked whether 2016 second-round pick Derrick Henry will be a bigger part of the offense next season, to which the head honcho expressed his support of Murray as the main man. Henry is an insurance policy in the event Murray suffers an injury, but the latter didn't miss one game in his first campaign with the Titans, despite coming down with a torn plantar plate in his right foot in Week 8. Mularkey is a proponent of "a one-two punch to smash it down peoples' throats," so the 29-year-old Murray may yield some touches at times to his younger counterpart. Considering Mularkey's other comments, though, a healthy Murray should be the recipient of 20-plus touches per game, as he was on 11 occasions last year.

    Chiefs' C.J. Spiller: Agrees to deal with Kansas City
    2d ago

    C.J. Spiller signed a contract with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday.

    Though he's just 29 years old, the former No. 9 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft has settled into the journeyman phase of his career since his breakout 2012 campaign with the Bills, during which he picked up a career-high 1,244 yards on 6.0 yards per carry. Following his exit from Buffalo after the 2014 season, Spiller has had abbreviated stints with the Saints, Seahawks and Jets, finding little success at any stop. The Chiefs will likely bring Spiller to training camp with the hope that he can still offer some value as a third-down back or returner, but even if he's able to win a spot on the 53-man roster, he likely won't see enough touches to approach fantasy relevance in most leagues.

Head coach Mike McCarthy has already mentioned that Lacy's prospects for a return to Green Bay may be contingent upon his health, so a physical could be ordered up as his unrestricted free agency approaches. If retained by the only organization he's ever known, Lacy will team with converted wideout Ty Montgomery to form a potential thunder-and-lightning RB combination.

    Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Unlikely to have groin surgery

    Le'Veon Bell (groin) isn't expected to undergo groin surgery this offseason, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Per Rapoport, a procedure would have been performed at this point, if specialists deemed it crucial to Bell's long-term health. Instead, Bell will focus on rehabilitating the groin injury that forced him to sit out all but 11 of the Pittsburgh Steelers ' 69 offensive snaps in the AFC championship game. In the coming days, the organization must choose whether to apply its franchise tag to Bell by March 1, work out a long-term deal by March 9, or risk losing him as an unrestricted free agent after 4 PM ET on the latter date. The 25-year-old has recorded at least 1,800 total yards, 75 receptions, and nine touchdowns in two of the last three seasons, but multiple suspensions and ailments have wiped away 20 of a possible 70 games in his four-year career, so the front office may be reticent to allocate significant money to the All-Pro.

    Cowboys' Terrance Williams: Heads into free agency after disappointing year

    Terrance Williams finished the 2016 regular season with 44 catches on 61 targets for 594 yards and four touchdowns.

    The targets and yards were career lows for Williams, as was his 13.5 yards per catch. He'll head into free agency without much buzz as a result, which could keep his price tag low enough that the Dallas Cowboys consider bringing him back. However, if another club is willing to pay him more like the wide receiver that racked up 13 TDs in his first two years in the league, and who topped 16.0 YPC in each of his first three campaigns, Dallas will likely look elsewhere for WR depth behind Dez Bryant.

    After he emerged from Week 12 without a target for the first time in his career, Cooks expressed frustration, spurring rumblings within the NFL that he may shopped in the offseason. Having said that, he has one year remaining on his rookie deal, which can become two seasons if the Saints exercise the 2018 option available to former first-round picks. With a March 3 deadline looming, such a decision would seemingly be a no-brainer for a wideout coming off back-to-back 1,000-yard campaigns and 17 touchdowns during that span.

Gase will soon be embarking upon his second offseason program with the Dolphins, only this time he'll have a familiar face to introduce to quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

Thomas scored 12 touchdowns in both of those seasons, emerging as a top fantasy tight end along the way. Although having Peyton Manning as his quarterback obviously helped his stock significantly at the time, Thomas should like his chances of rebounding in his new setting, where he could cement himself as Miami's starting tight end given that Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Dion Sims are both potential free-agent departures this offseason.

    Buccaneers' Alterraun Verner: Will be released Thursday
    3d ago

    Alterraun Verner will be released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Verner would have been owed $6.5 million in 2017. He saw a reduced workload in 2016 compared to his first two seasons in Tampa Bay, recording only 16 tackles compared to 76 and 56 in 2014 and 2015, respectively. A big reason for this regression was the emergence of rookie Vernon Hargreaves, who took over as the starting corner opposite Brent Grimes last season and racked up 76 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble. Verner still has value as a defender, and should find himself on an NFL roster come September.
