    • Kam Chancellor exits with wrap on knee
      Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor exited Friday's practice with a wrap on his left knee.

      Advice: This is why he was added to the injury report and listed as probable. Per Super Bowl pool reporter Peter King, Chancellor missed the final rep of practice after falling near the goal line on the second to last play. The probable listing indicates the Seahawks aren't worried about Chancellor's availability for Sunday's matchup with Rob Gronkowski. Rotoworld.com

    • Bryant 'destined' for Cowboys' franchise tag?
      ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes impending free agent Dez Bryant is "destined" for the franchise tag.

      Advice: Archer is one of the most plugged-in NFL beat reporters and has been anticipating Dez wearing Dallas' 2015 franchise tag since last summer. The price of the wide receiver tag is expected to be around $13 million. The Cowboys want to eventually lock up Bryant long term, but Archer "highly doubts" the sides will strike a deal before free agency opens on March 10. Rotoworld.com

      ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer has heard that "everything is coming along fine" in Cowboys WLB Sean Lee's ACL rehab.

      Advice: Lee tore the ACL in 2014 OTAs. He hasn't had any setbacks and could be available for offseason workouts. The Cowboys' MIKE linebacker the past four years, Lee will move to the weak side in DC Rod Marinelli's scheme. Rotoworld.com

    • Titans SS Bernard Pollard asks for release
      Titans SS Bernard Pollard has requested to be released.

      Advice: Entering the final year of his contract, Pollard is owed $3.1 million in 2015. He was playing at a high level before missing the final 11 games of the season with a torn Achilles' tendon. Pollard reportedly wants to play for a contender. 30-year-old Pollard is three months removed from surgery. The Titans would absorb just $425,000 in dead money by releasing him. Rotoworld.com

      Matt Cassel has a $500,000 roster bonus due on March 17.

      Advice: Cassel is slated to make $4.15 million in 2015. His contract is reasonable for a top backup, but the Vikings could avoid paying any further guaranteed money by cutting him. Cassel is four months removed from Lisfranc surgery and questionable to be ready for OTAs. Rotoworld.com

    • Jerome Felton expected to void his contract
      Vikings FB Jerome Felton is expected to void his contract, making him a free agent.

      Advice: Felton has a $2.45 million player option for 2015. As the Vikings turned to a shotgun-heavy offense to suit Teddy Bridgewater, Felton's snaps were scaled back dramatically despite still-effective lead blocking when he's gotten the chance to play. He'd be a better fit on more of an I-formation team. Rotoworld.com

    • Jags 'very optimistic' Blackmon plays in 2015
      Jaguars owner Shad Khan stated Friday at the Super Bowl that he is "very optimistic" about the 2015 return of suspended WR Justin Blackmon.

      Advice: "Absolutely," Khan stated vehemently. "As a matter of fact, I’m very optimistic. I think he’s paid his dues. I think he’s got his life together. I think he can be a role model for people who have gone through hard times. We’re waiting for him." Blackmon's return would be a huge boost to Jacksonville's wideout corps, which is dealing with Allen Robinson's foot fracture and Cecil Shorts' free agency. 25-year-old Blackmon is a run-after-catch machine with an ability to threaten the intermediate sections. He'd be a big upgrade on Shorts at Z receiver. Rotoworld.com

    • Blount has marijuana charges withdrawn
      LeGarrette Blount had his marijuana charges withdrawn after he completed 50 hours of community service.

      Advice: Blount and Le'Veon Bell were arrested in August and popped with pot charges. Blount had until February 4 to complete his court-mandated community service. With the case now resolved, the league can step in and take action against Blount. It's possible he and Bell receive a fine or short suspension in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Marshall's Bears future in question?
      ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright writes that "nobody knows" whether Brandon Marshall will be back with the Bears in 2015.

      Advice: The Bears signed Marshall to a new four-year, $39 million deal last May, but the regime that handed him that extension is gone. Marshall is still a fine player and worth the money, but there's some question whether he'll be able to coexist with Chicago's new staff. OC Adam Gase was the Broncos' WRs coach when Mike Shanahan banished Marshall from Denver. Marshall also had a 2014 falling out with Jay Cutler. Per the website OverTheCap.com, the Bears could save $3.95 million in cap space by cutting Marshall this offseason. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Allen's 2015 money fully guaranteed
      Bears RE Jared Allen has a $12.5 million cap number for 2015.

      Advice: It's fully guaranteed, too, so the Bears would take on a $12.5 million dead money hit if they were to release Allen. The Bears are expected to switch to a 3-4 defense under new DC Vic Fangio. Allen expressed some concern about the change, but believes he'll be a pure edge rusher at outside linebacker. He did admit that, if he had his choice, Allen would prefer to be a 4-3 right end. Rotoworld.com

    • Blount denies orchestrating release from PIT
      LeGarrette Blount denies orchestrating his November release from the Steelers.

      Advice: Conspiracy theorists suggest that New England reached out to Blount and told him that if he wiggled his way out of Pittsburgh, he'd be able to return to Bill Belichick's waiting arms. So then Blount went haywire with his attitude and quit on the team, leaving Mike Tomlin no choice but to dump Le'Veon Bell's backup. The hole in that theory is that every team in the league had a chance to claim him before he became a free agent and signed with the Patriots. Regardless, in seven games as a Patriot since then, Blount has rushed 93 times for 430 yards (4.62 YPC) with six touchdowns. Rotoworld.com

    • Cowboys LB Sean Lee has horrible contract
      The Dallas Morning News names WLB Sean Lee's contract one of the three worst on the team.

      Advice: It's hard to disagree. Lee inked a seven-year, $42 million deal in August 2013 and has appeared in just 11-of-32 regular-season games because of various injuries in 2013 and a torn ACL in 2014. When on the field, Lee was worth the money. But he's no longer expected to man the middle for the Cowboys, and will instead shift to the weak side in DC Rod Marinelli's scheme. The Cowboys will hope to bring back impending free agent MLB Rolando McClain. Cutting Lee isn't an option, as the Cowboys would take on a $9 million-plus dead money hit. Rotoworld.com

Per Werder, Sherman is "improving daily," and "finished with treatment." It's possible we'll learn that Sherman is dealing with a more serious injury than he's letting on following SB XLIX.

      Suspended WR Justin Blackmon pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge on November 20.

      Advice: The charge will be reduced to misdemeanor disorderly conduct if Blackmon commits no crimes for six months after November 20. According to beat writer Michael DiRocco, the Jaguars need Blackmon to apply for reinstatement "within the next five weeks." From the date Blackmon fills out the application, Roger Goodell would have 60 days to decide whether to reinstate him to the NFL. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Graham now thinks he'll avoid surgery
      Following Sunday's Pro Bowl, Jimmy Graham said he still believes he will avoid offseason shoulder surgery.

      Advice: Graham looked healthy during the Pro Bowl, catching three passes for 30 yards with two touchdowns. "It made a big difference, just having some rest," he said. We still don't know the exact specifics of Graham's injury, but we do know it really limited his catch radius and role during a disappointing 85-889-10 season. He'll get a lot more rest before next season, setting up a potential bounce-back campaign in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • 'Optimism' Justin Blackmon will return in '15
      FOX Sports' Alex Marvez reports "lots of folks" inside the NFL are "optimistic" suspended WR Justin Blackmon will return to the Jaguars in 2015.

      Advice: Just as Josh Gordon's Dynasty league owners get the worst news possible, Blackmon's get a ray of hope. The Jaguars hope to have an update on Blackmon's progress before May's draft, at which point they can begin planning for the 2015 season. Blackmon remains "suspended indefinitely," with no concrete date for potential reinstatement. At Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell's season-ending presser this past December, he said he'd "heard some good things" about Blackmon's recovery from substance abuse. Blackmon turned 25 two weeks ago. His return would be a huge boost for beleaguered Blake Bortles. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Graham battled a shoulder injury for the entire second half of the 2014 season, severely affecting his production. He wouldn't reveal the injury's specifics in a Thursday interview with reporters. Still only 28 years old, we suspect Graham has a few seasons left in him of top-three tight end production. He'd be a value pick in the third round of 2015 fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com
