    Free agent TE Ben Watson has been in talks with the Saints.

    Advice: "I had a good conversation with Sean (Payton) and Mickey (Loomis)," Watson said. "I’d love to be playing there. If not there, we’ll see where else. I think I’ll know more in about a month." Coming off a career year, Watson expects to return for at least one more season. 35-year-old Watson could be willing to settle for a one-year deal.

  • Josh Gordon confident he'll be reinstated
    ESPN Cleveland reports suspended WR Josh Gordon is confident he’ll be reinstated.

    Advice: Commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledged Gordon has applied for reinstatement, but declined to update his status. The league has 60 days to make a decision, so there should be clarity on Gordon prior to the draft. Despite multiple off-field letdowns, Browns VP of football operations Sashi Brown is open to keeping Gordon if reinstated. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:11 pm

  • Lions president keeping tabs on Megatron
    Lions president Rod Wood is hoping to introduce Calvin Johnson to GM Bob Quinn sometime next week.

    Advice: Wood said he's kept in touch with Johnson, exchanging texts as recently as Wednesday. Johnson hasn't officially announced his retirement yet and the Lions are hoping a sit-down with Quinn will help him change his mind. If Megatron does return in 2016, the Lions will likely have to re-work his contract. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:10 pm

  • Montee Ball arrested after domestic incident
    Free agent RB Montee Ball was arrested Friday morning in Madison, Wisconsin following an altercation with his girlfriend.

    Advice: Police were called to Ball's hotel around 3:40 a.m. after he allegedly pushed his girlfriend into a table. "The woman told police she had a dispute with her boyfriend," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain. "She said he put his hands on her, picked her up and threw her." The woman reportedly suffered a cut that required stitches. Ball was taken to Dane County Jail on a tentative charge of "substantial battery." Ball spent time on New England's practice squad late last year, but didn't see any game action and was rumored to be significantly out of shape. It's quite possible Ball's NFL career is over.

  • Todd Gurley's foot 100 percent healthy
    Todd Gurley said his foot is 100 percent healthy.

    Advice: Gurley was in a walking boot at the end of the season and missed Week 17 with a mild case of turf toe. He played in last weekend's Pro Bowl, so the issue is well behind him. Gurley will train at EXOS Performance in LA this offseason and should be a surefire first-round pick in redraft and dynasty drafts this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:35 am

  • Rueben Randle unlikely to be re-sign with NYG
    The Newark Star-Ledger doesn't envision the Giants re-signing impending free agent Rueben Randle.

    Advice: Beat writer James Kratch isn't sure if the Giants even want Randle back, but he also suspects Randle will get more money from another team than the Giants will be willing to pay. Randle seemed to frustrate ex-coach Tom Coughlin a great deal, but it's unclear how OC-turned-coach Ben McAdoo felt about the 24-year-old. Randle is entering a market with not much receiver talent available, so it's possible a team drastically overpays him. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:01 am

  • 'Fair to assume' Lynch's time in Seattle over
    NFL Network's Michael Robinson said it's "fair to assume" that Marshawn Lynch won't be back with the Seahawks.

    Advice: Robinson, of course, is the Seahawks' former fullback and Lynch's best friend. "I don’t think that’s a slight to Marshawn, just after a while, a back gets older, still wants more money," Robinson said. "A team has to be prepared to get younger at some point. And I think the injury didn’t help this year. The fact that he didn’t get the yards that he usually gets didn’t help this year. So we’ll see." Robinson also said he knows if Lynch will retire or not, but passed on spilling the beans. The Seahawks can save $6.5 million by releasing Beast Mode. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:00 am

  • Norman hints he'll cover Demaryius Thomas
    Panthers RCB Josh Norman expects to primarily cover Demaryius Thomas in Super Bowl 50.

    Advice: Norman has been having a war of words with Emmanuel Sanders, but it appears he'll be deployed on Thomas. Thomas had an up and down year, but still ended up with 105 catches for 1,304 yards. He's been limited to six grabs for 52 yards in the postseason, however. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:17 pm

  • Victor Cruz won't have 'long-term problems'
    NJ.com reports Victor Cruz is expected to have "no long-term problems" from his torn calf.

    Advice: Per reporter Jordan Raanan, Cruz had a "torn fascia," a "very rare" injury. Going on 30, Cruz enters 2016 having appeared in six games over the past two years. At some point this offseason, his $7.9 million salary will be slashed. It's possible Cruz is outright released. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:13 pm

  • DeMarco Murray says he wants to stay w/ PHI
    DeMarco Murray insists he wants to remain with the Eagles.

    Advice: "That’s not the lasting impression I want to leave in my mouth and (for) the fans, and my family, anyone," Murray said. "I never want to leave off on a note like I did last year. So I'm working tremendously hard to try and improve." NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday the sides are "not in a good place." If Murray wants out, he's at least going to take the high road publicly. With his contract making him difficult to trade or cut, Murray will likely be back with the Eagles.

  • Report: Redskins won't make any Morris effort
    ESPN's John Keim reports the Redskins won't make an effort to re-sign Alfred Morris in free agency.

    Advice: Executive Bruce Allen has already admitted the team will let Morris reach the open market, but Keim reports they're unlikely to re-sign him even at a team-friendly rate. Per Keim, the Redskins were frustrated with Morris' "lack of productivity" last season, "especially when the blocking wasn't there." Keim reports there's "a belief" that Morris' 1,078 career carries have already taken a toll on his effectiveness. Morris' 1,613 rushing yards as a rookie were the 49th most in NFL history, but his production has steadily waned ever since. He was a product of ex-coach Mike Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme.

  • Murray and Eagles 'headed toward stare-down'
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles and DeMarco Murray "are not in a good place."

    Advice: Rapoport reports Murray has not asked to be traded or released, and the Eagles are not interested in cutting him at this point. Rapoport did say "it's fair to say Murray has eyes on greener pastures," however, and the Eagles are likely not happy with the amount of money they have invested at running back. Murray's contract makes cutting him almost impossible, but Philly may start shopping him in trades if the relationship is truly broken. Murray gained 702 yards on 193 carries (3.64 YPC) in the first season of a five-year, $40 million deal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 am

  • Redskins allowing Morris to test open market
    Redskins president Bruce Allen suggested the team is not actively trying to re-sign impending free agent Alfred Morris.

    Advice: "Free agency is going to be a great test for him," Allen said. "If he gets a great contract [elsewhere], we’re going to applaud him. If not, we’re going to see what happens with us." Allen did not completely shut the door on re-signing Morris, but it is clear they are not actively working on a deal. A two-down player on a clear downward trend, Morris may struggle to find a starting job in free agency. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:00 am

  • Dolphins could ask Cameron to take pay cut
    The Palm Beach Post believes the Dolphins may ask Jordan Cameron to take a pay cut.

    Advice: Cameron was signed to replace Charles Clay's production, but he managed just 35 catches on 70 targets for 386 yards and three scores. There is almost no way Miami keeps Cameron at his scheduled $9.5 million cap hit. Releasing Cameron would save Miami all of his $7.5 million base salary against the cap.

  • UFA Rishard Matthews likely done in Miami
    The Palm Beach Post believes impending free agent WR Rishard Matthews will not be back with the Dolphins next season.

    Advice: After clamoring for more snaps his entire stay in Miami, Matthews finally got them in 2015, and he made the most of the work. Matthews posted career-highs in catches (43), yards (662) and touchdowns (4) while only playing in 11 games. Despite the nice year, Miami already has their future at the position with Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker, and the Dolphins have big needs to fill all over the depth chart. Matthews should have no trouble finding a new home in free agency. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:34 am

  • Lions knew retirement was option for Johnson
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions informed coaching candidates during their 2014 search of "concerns doctors had for [Calvin] Johnson's longevity and the condition of his ankles."

    Advice: This means the Lions have known any season could be Johnson's last for at least the last two years, and yet they still failed to adequately address the position in the last two drafts, which were two of the best receiver classes in recent memory. Dealing with real health concerns, all indications are Johnson is serious about retirement. He just turned 30 in September. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:49 am

  • Eddie Lacy played season near 260 pounds?
    The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes it's "a good bet" Eddie Lacy played "at least" 25 pounds heavier than his playing weight of 234.

    Advice: In other words, beat writer Rob Reischel thinks Lacy was near 260. Lacy's weigh-in at Alabama's 2013 Pro Day was 5-foot-11, 231. We've gone back to check Lacy's college tape as a comparison tool, and he looks considerably more fit and slender in Crimson Tide than Lacy appeared to be this past year. Wrote Reischel, "In fact, from the waist down, you couldn't tell the difference between Lacy and 301-pound center Corey Linsley." Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:04 pm

  • Report: Lions aim to keep Mega with extension
    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Lions' "goal" is to retain Calvin Johnson with a Larry Fitzgerald-esque extension.

    Advice: That's after they convince him to keep playing. Johnson has yet to publicly announce his intentions, but multiple reports suggest he's serious about retiring. If he changes his mind, the Lions apparently won't be paying him his $15.95 million salary, which comes with a monumental $24 million cap number. Fitzgerald agreed to a two-year, $22 million deal under similar circumstances last offseason. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:16 pm

  • Report: Mega has already informed ownership
    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Calvin Johnson has already called Lions ownership to "thank them for everything."

    Advice: In other words, he's saying his goodbyes. The league and the media that covers it seem to be having a hard time believing that Johnson, who doesn't turn 31 until September, is actually retiring, but all his actions suggest he's deadly serious. Unfortunately, it's looking like we've seen Megatron play his last snap. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:13 pm

  • Report: Packers want Lacy to lose 30 pounds
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers want Eddie Lacy to lose 30 pounds.

    Advice: Rapoport added Lacy is "committed" to losing the weight, "through camp or a fitness program." Lacy refused to talk about his weight during the year, but the Packers made it very clear after the season Lacy's weight was a big concern. Lacy had career lows in carries (187), total yards (946) and touchdowns (5) in 2015. He will need a much better showing in the final year of his rookie deal to land a long-term extension.

  • Report: Calvin told Lions he plans to retire
    According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Calvin Johnson told Lions coach Jim Caldwell that he plans to retire.

    Advice: Megatron informed Caldwell of his retirement decision "the day after the regular season ended." Per Schefter, Johnson had told friends and family he planned to make 2015 his final NFL year before the season began. The Lions reportedly "haven't given up hope" that Johnson will change his mind, but a "person close to him" says Johnson is "pretty content" with his decision. Johnson turned 30 years old in September. He has the entire offseason to reconsider -- with a $16 million salary hanging in the balance -- but there seems to be no question Megatron is serious about retirement at this point in time.

  • Redskins not expected to re-up Alfred Morris
    CSN Washington's Rich Tandler believes the Redskins are unlikely to re-sign free agent Alfred Morris.

    Advice: Morris wants to return to D.C., but the feeling doesn't appear mutual. Alf's production has fallen dramatically on an annual basis since his rookie year, and at age 27 his best years are probably behind him. Matt Jones struggled with fumbles during his rookie season, but his upside is enough to make Morris expendable. Chris Thompson should be back in his normal third-down role.

  • No timetable for Megatron retirement decision
    Calvin Johnson's agent says there's no timetable for Johnson's retirement decision.

    Advice: Johnson said he expected to reach a decision in the "not-too-distant future" earlier this month, but that no longer appears likely. Megatron is a superstar wrestling with the biggest decision of his career, so the Lions are unlikely to push the matter before the start of free agency. We wouldn't expect a Brett Favre-style waffle into the summer. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:08 am

  • Lynch may have to give up bonus if he retires
    Marshawn Lynch could have to pay back $5 million of the signing bonus he received last season if he retires.

    Advice: Lynch's deal included a $7.5 million signing bonus which was spread out over three years on the Seahawks' salary cap. If he retires, the Seahawks could ask him to pay back the $5 million remaining on the cap. The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports it is "not expected" the Seahawks would ask for the money back, however, and Lynch could simply wait for Seattle to cut him to avoid repaying the money. It remains likely Lynch has played his final down in Seattle, but he will likely get to keep the signing bonus. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:17 am
