    • Broncos could show interest in Charles Clay
      The Denver Post's Mike Klis expects the Broncos to have some interest in free agent Charles Clay.

      Advice: Julius Thomas is expected to walk in free agency and leave the Broncos for a big-money deal. He's likely looking for $8 million-plus annually, while Clay should slot in around the $6 million range. Clay seems like the better fit for coach Gary Kubiak's offense as a finesse player who can line up at multiple spots. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Maclin could be tagged on Monday
      CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher believes the Eagles will use the franchise tag on free agent Jeremy Maclin on Monday if the two sides don't agree to a long-term deal.

      Advice: Maclin isn't in a rush to get a long-term deal done with the Eagles because he may want to see the open market. The Eagles can't afford to lose Maclin and are reportedly getting closer to his contract demands. The use of the tag would be to buy time in extension talks, as neither side would want to go into the season on the tag. It's ultimately be a surprise if Maclin reached free agency March 10.

    • Cowboys admit Murray is headed to open market
      Cowboys VP Stephen Jones admitted talks with free agent DeMarco Murray have been "slow," and Murray will make it to the open market.

      Advice: "[Murray] is probably going to, you know, get some peace and see what's out in the market and then we'll talk and see," Jones said. "I do believe deep down he'd love to stay in Dallas." The Cowboys couldn't reach a long-term deal with fellow free agent Dez Bryant and will be forced to tag him this week. Murray's days with Dallas aren't necessarily over, but the 27-year-old should chase the money. Rotoworld.com

    • Bucs keeping Vincent Jackson at full salary
      The Tampa Bay Times' Rick Stroud reports the Bucs have made the decision to keep Vincent Jackson at his $12.2 million cap number for 2015.

      Advice: GM Jason Licht said as much at the Combine, but it appears to be officially official now. Jackson just turned 32 last month and is coming off his third-straight 1,000-yard season in Tampa Bay. He'll stick around to continue to mentor Mike Evans, giving the incoming rookie quarterback two monster targets to throw to on the outside. Jackson has two years left on his $55.555 million deal.

    • Cowboys confirm Dez Bryant will be franchised
      Cowboys VP Stephen Jones confirmed the team will use the franchise tag on free agent Dez Bryant.

      Advice: "I think it would be a stretch to think we would have something done by Monday," Jones said. "Looks like we're eyeing a franchise tag on Dez, but that certainly won't stop us from working hard to get a long-term deal." This has been the expectation all along. Dallas is in talks with Bryant, but the sides aren't expected to reach an agreement before the franchise-tag deadline. Bryant will make around $13 million if the Cowboys don't extend him by July 15.

      Advice: Richardson is owed a guaranteed $3.18 million, but the Colts can void his salary due to a team-imposed suspension. He remains a strong candidate to be cut despite a looming NFLPA battle. Releasing Richardson would leave Dan Herron, Zurlon Tipton, and Vick Ballard as the Colts' only running backs. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: An extension could lower Eli's $17 million salary, but the Giants have $25M in cap room and don't feel the need. Manning is coming off a bounce-back year after leading the NFL in turnovers in 2013. He's expected to command $20 million annually on a long-term deal. The Giants could be better off waiting until Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers get their new contracts to extend Manning. Rotoworld.com

He blamed his 2013 struggles on a quad injury he played through the entire season, and believes he still has the ability to help a team. Rice looked to be on the downside of his career prior his suspension and turned 28 this offseason. No team has called Rice since his November reinstatement. Rotoworld.com

The Packers have $33.2M in salary-cap space to re-sign Cobb, but could move forward with Davante Adams and Jeff Janis behind Jordy Nelson. Rotoworld.com

      ESPN Boston expects free agent Stevan Ridley (knee) to settle for a one-year, "prove-it" deal.

      Advice: Coming off ACL surgery, Ridley will attempt to reestablish his value before getting another chance at free agency in 2016. He's been one of the better power backs in the league when healthy, and has potential to be a high-reward signing for a team that's willing to bet on his recovery. Ridley should command an incentives-based deal in the range of $1.25 million. Rotoworld.com

Coach Marvin Lewis was noncommittal when asked about Gresham at the Combine, and Dehner said Gresham's "act has worn thin" around the organization. The Bengals will lean on now healthy Tyler Eifert in the passing game and bring in a cheap option to help as a blocker. Gresham is Rotoworld's No. 4 available tight end. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Following the release of Jacoby Jones, the Ravens would seem to be in the market for a kick returner. Campanaro is the favorite among players currently on the roster, but Baltimore could address the position through free agency or the draft.

      Advice: The move will save San Francisco $6.025 million against the 2015 salary cap. Acquired from Buffalo for a fourth-round pick last May, Johnson posted a 35/435/3 line in his lone season in San Francisco. A crisp route runner, Johnson had three straight 1000-yard receiving seasons under new Jets OC Chan Gailey while the pair were in Buffalo. He should find a healthy market as a solid possession receiver. Rotoworld.com

      The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane reports the Eagles and free agent Jeremy Maclin are not "significantly far apart" in contract negotiations.

      Advice: McLane, and really everyone else, believes a deal will get done. The real question is whether the Eagles resort to the franchise tag if a deal cannot be reached by the March 2 deadline. McLane says it is "unlikely" the Eagles want to pay Maclin the estimated $12.8 million the tag would cost, but Philadelphia "would probably only use the tag to buy time and keep Maclin off the market." Despite the protracted negotiations, Maclin is expected to re-sign with the Eagles. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Spiller recently said there was a "possibility" he could return to Buffalo, but added "the ball is in their court." Spiller is a questionable fit for new OC Greg Roman's offense, and his best season as a pro came under former Bills HC and current Jets OC Chan Gailey.

    • Dez named in 2011 Wal-Mart incident
      NFL Media has produced the incident/investigation report regarding a 2011 incident in a Wal-Mart parking lot that involved Dez Bryant.

      Advice: This is the incident that has been generating headlines and wild rumors over the last 24 hours. The report says an unknown person called police to explain a black female was "being dragged from one vehicle to another vehicle" by a black male. The vehicle the woman was dragged from was a Mercedes registered to Bryant. When police arrived on the scene, the alleged victim was not there. Soon after, she arrived in a Bentley with Bryant and said she had an argument with a man named Alex Person and that she was not assaulted in any way. The police let everyone go, determining there was no offense. It remains unclear if there is any video of the incident, although most Wal-Marts have security cameras.

In addition to the best offer, Spiller sounds like he's looking for respect from the Bills, something he often didn't receive from the previous coaching staff. Spiller's free agency will come down to a numbers game, quite possibly between the Bills and Jets. Spiller's rep met with the Bills at the Combine. Rotoworld.com

      The Raiders are ready to make a run at free agent Randall Cobb.

      Advice: No team is more desperate for receiving talent than Oakland. It's been a full decade since their last 1,000-yard receiver (Randy Moss in 2005). Oakland is said to be targeting Alabama receiver Amari Cooper in the draft, but that won't be enough to turn around one of the league's worst passing offenses. Cobb is still fully expected to re-sign with Green Bay, but don't be surprised if Oakland tempts him with a competitive offer. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley says that figure would put Clay in "Dennis Pitta/Greg Olsen territory."

There should be a robust market for 26-year-old Clay, though ultimately we expect him to stay with Miami. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Murray's 392 carries in 2014 tied for the seventh-most in league history. Despite playing every game last season, Murray hasn't been a particularly durable player throughout his career.

      Advice: The Cowboys repeatedly made allusions to this during the 2014 season as well.
