  • Archie and Eli weigh in on Peyton's retirement
    Archie and Eli Manning think switching teams could be a deal breaker for Peyton Manning.

    Advice: "He had some offers last year from teams, some teams talked to him," said Archie. "But I think that was going to be a lot of drama, again, to change teams, that he didn't want to go through. He did do that once, so I don't know that he would want to do that." Eli agreed that playing for a different team would be "tough" for Peyton. All signs are pointing to Sunday being Peyton's last game. Even if the Broncos are interested in keeping him, which seems unlikely, it's doubtful Manning would put himself through another year of wear and tear after missing six games to injury this season.

  • 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

    Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said the team has reached out to Johnny Manziel "several times" without a response.

    Advice: "We're not worried about Johnny Manziel the football player, we're worried about Johnny Manziel the person," said Haslam. Manziel's life is spiraling out of control. He was dropped by his agent on Friday and has reportedly refused to go to rehab despite his family's insistence. The most ominous quote came from Manziel's father, who told the Dallas Morning News, "I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday." Manziel is living in denial right now and needs to get help immediately. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:01 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.

    No quarterback has been sacked more than Ryan Tannehill since 2012.

    Advice: Between Miami's coaching instability and underachieving offensive line, it's easy to see why Tannehill took a 2015 step back. Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas were two of the worst guards in football, while Jason Fox was a nightmare filling in for injured RT Ja’Wuan James.

    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

But Burkhardt seems fed up with the off-field mess for his client, and Manziel has been unwilling to take control of his own life. Burkhardt says he's tried setting up meetings for Manziel with professionals, but Manziel has declined them. Manziel needs to pull himself out of the gutter. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:12 am

    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

Manziel has strongly hinted at wanting to play in Dallas ever since he entered the league as a 2014 first-rounder. After all of his off-field issues, it's uncertain whether Manziel will even be in the league in the 2016 season. The Rams may be one club desperate enough. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:51 am

"Our thinking was it would be very helpful to find whoever it was who was making up lies about Peyton, and figure out why someone would fabricate information like this," spokesman Ari Fleischer said.

Manziel is lucky with the law, but from an NFL perception standpoint, the damage has already been done. Charges or no charges, Manziel seems like a person in need of serious help.

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.

  • 'Feeling' Denver will try to re-sign Osweiler
    ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the "feeling" around Denver is the Broncos will attempt to re-sign impending free agent Brock Osweiler.

    Advice: Osweiler gave back the starting job to Peyton Manning after a lackluster run in the middle of the season, but the Broncos are looking at a bleak situation at quarterback moving forward. Manning will likely retire after the Super Bowl, and the Broncos will not want to pay him $19 million or eat his $21.5 million cap hit even if he decides to play another season. With Osweiler a free agent, Manning's exit would leave 2015 seventh-round pick Trevor Siemian as the only quarterback on the roster. With not much help available in free agency or the draft, Osweiler may end up being the best option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:24 am

  • Report: Rams keeping eye on Peyton Manning
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Rams "have had internal discussions" about signing Peyton Manning and are "monitoring the situation."

    Advice: The Rams are desperate for quarterback help, and nothing screams making a splash in their return to L.A. like signing Manning, even if he is merely a shell of his former self. And that may be generous. Manning turns 40 next month, and he and coach Jeff Fisher have a history dating back to AFC South battles between Fisher's Titans and Manning's Colts. The Broncos hold a $19 million option on Manning for 2016, but most expect them to move on after Manning battled injury and interceptions this season, leading to a 67.9 QB rating. Nick Foles (69.0) and Case Keenum (87.7) were actually better in that category. Signing Manning would be a PR thing at this point in his career. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:48 am

    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

  • Peyton admits 2015-16 may be 'my last rodeo'
    Peyton Manning told Bill Belichick this season "might be my last rodeo" on the field after the AFC Championship Game.

    Advice: Manning and Belichick did not discuss what was said after the game, but NFL Network audio picked up Manning's side of the conversation. "Hey, listen, this might be my last rodeo," Manning said. "So, it sure has been a pleasure." Manning has already admitted he is considering retirement, and it is very likely the Super Bowl will be his final game regardless of the result. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:57 am
