by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

The Patriots are reportedly looking to sign cornerback Darrelle Revis to a long-term extension, according Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

However, New England has not ruled out paying Revis the $20 million team option in 2015, Rapoport reports. The decision needs to be made by April 1, when a $12 million roster bonus kicks in for Revis.

Revis totaled 47 tackles in 16 games for the Patriots, grabbing two interceptions and forcing one fumble.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Bills running back C.J. Spiller is getting healthy again. Spiller, who has fully recovered from a shoulder injury, just ended the final season of his contract and is looking at his options for next season.

"Physically, I’m back to 100 percent, back to doing normal activities," Spiller told The Post and Courier on Friday. "As far as football, free agency will start in March, and I’ll get with my people next week and get a game plan together."

Spiller has played five seasons for the Bills, only playing two full years. He ran for 1,244 yards in 2012 with six touchdowns.

"I guess you could say it’ll be March Madness," Spiller said with a smile. "It’ll be a fun March."

Saints quarterback Drew Brees: 'It was my most frustrating season'
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Saints quarterback Drew Brees wasn't exactly thrilled with how things went during his 14th season in the league.

"It was my most frustrating season," said Brees to Sports Illustrated after the Pro Bowl Sunday. "You never want to go 7-9. It’s no fun."

It was only Brees' fourth losing season in his pro career. However, heading into his 15th season and age 37, he believes the Saints have figured out what went wrong for New Orleans in 2014.

"I think we’ve identified the problems or the things that got us beat or the things that didn’t allow us to be as good as we know we can be, and we have the solution to fix it," Brees said. "It’s going to take a lot of work, but I know we can get it done."

Brees narrowly missed his fourth consecutive 5,000-yard passing season in 2014, going for 4,952. He also threw his fewest touchdown passes since 2010.

Bengals' Vontaze Burfict undergoes microfracture surgery
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict has gone under the knife for surgery on his knee, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

However, when the surgery was performed in October, it was not reported to be microfracture surgery. Dr. Neal ElAttranche confirmed Sunday he performed microfracture surgery on Burfict's knee.

"I don't see any reason, if this thing heals like we want and we think it will, why he won't be back like he was," said ElAttrache. "Microfracture has a bad connotation, but there are plenty of guys who have come back and been able to play like before. But it's not really news when it works out."

ElAttrache said he believes Burfict should be ready at full strength for the start of training camp.

Burfict's season was cut short by the knee injury, allowing him to play just five games in 2014, totaling 29 tackles.
