  • Packers exec Gutekunst out of 49ers running
    Packers director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst has withdrawn his name from the 49ers' general manager search.

    Advice: Just like Packers colleague Eliot Wolf, Gutekunst signed a new deal to remain in Green Bay. The 49ers' GM search might be down to George Paton and Terry McDonough. Kyle Shanahan is expected to command final say and 49ers CEO Jed York isn't well liked, explaining San Francisco's struggle to attract GM candidates. Rotoworld.com Just now

  • D.J. Reader expected to take over for Wilfork
    Second-year NT D.J. Reader is expected to replace Vince Wilfork as the starter in 2017.

    Advice: Wilfork is expected to retire. The No. 166 overall pick in last year's draft, Reader played 477 snaps as a rookie and made eight starts. "Reader is one of the better young defensive linemen I've been around in the NFL," coach Bill O'Brien said. "He's a really good young player that has a really good future."

  • Charles Johnson wants to re-sign with CAR
    Impending free agent DE Charles Johnson wants to re-sign with the Panthers.

    Advice: Johnson will turn 31 this summer and will likely be open to taking another bargain one-year deal to return to the team. He played for $3 million this past season, and his play has fallen off in recent years while he's struggled to stay healthy. Johnson has missed 10 games the past two years while recording just five sacks. Defensive end is a major need for GM Dave Gettleman. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:57 am

  • Retirement a possibility for Tony Romo?
    Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official website believes retirement is a serious possibility for Tony Romo this offseason.

    Advice: Romo has already said he plans to keep playing, but that could always change as he closes in on his 37th birthday, is coming off multiple back injuries, and is being squeezed out of Dallas. Jerry Jones' main goal is to send Romo to a place he wants to play, so we ultimately expect him to play at least another year. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:45 am

  • Report: Browns, Jamie Collins nearing deal
    CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Browns have made "significant progress" in contract talks with impending free agent Jamie Collins, and are expected to finalize a deal by the weekend.

    Advice: GM Sashi Brown is on record as hoping to keep Collins without the franchise tag. Collins' play was listless following his acquisition from the Patriots, but that's not surprising for a player going from the top of the league to the bottom. Still only 27, Collins is a versatile playmaker, and has been durable. He would be a nice building block for a team in the middle of a total reset. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:59 pm

    Advice: A 2013 seventh-round pick of the Jaguars, McCray appeared in at least 14 games each of his first three years in the league before spending 2016 on the street. A big (6-foot-2) corner, he'll get a shot in Seattle. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:07 pm

Headed into the second season of a four-year, $40 million contract, Smith was benched in literally Week 1 before settling into a decent campaign.

  • Seahawks could be docked second-round pick
    ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Seahawks could be docked a second-round pick for failing to disclose Richard Sherman's MCL injury.

    Advice: Yikes. Coach Pete Carroll has to be regretting trying to explain away Sherman's (slightly) down 2016 right about now. What the Seahawks did is blatantly against the rules, but a second-rounder would be an extraordinarily severe punishment. The Seahawks are no strangers to pushing boundaries, but there's not a team in the league that doesn't play injury report games. The Seahawks are already missing a 2017 fifth-rounder for illegal offseason practice activity. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:15 am

  • Peterson interested in Texans, Bucs, Giants
    Adrian Peterson said he is interested in playing for the Texans, Bucs, and Giants.

    Advice: Peterson is still under contract with the Vikings, but there seems to be little hope he remains with the team next season. Owed $18 million in salary and bonuses including a $6 million roster bonus due on March 11, there is also little chance any team trades for the aging star. That means Peterson should have his pick of the litter once he is released, but none of these teams are viable options right now. The Texans just spent a lot of money on Lamar Miller, and Peterson is not a good fit in the Giants' shotgun-heavy attack. The Bucs could be an option if they decide to move on from Doug Martin, but Peterson is not a better player than Martin at this point in his career and might end up costing more. Along with Tony Romo, Peterson's search for a new team will be one of the biggest storylines this offseason. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 am

  • Report: Geronimo Allison expected to play
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against the Falcons.

    Advice: Allison said he sat out practice Wednesday "for precautionary reasons," so this is not a big surprise. With Davante Adams (ankle) likely to be limited even if he plays and Jordy Nelson (ribs) a "longshot," Allison could play a big role in a great matchup against the Falcons.

  • Chad Greenway will play for Vikes or no one
    Free agent WLB Chad Greenway said he will not play for any team other than the Vikings.

    Advice: Greenway played this season under the impression it would be his last, but he has yet to make a final decision. Greenway said he will meet with GM Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer this week, and that meeting could push him toward retirement if it is clear the Vikings do not want him back. The former first-round pick has likely played his final snap in the NFL. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:08 am

    Advice: However, Allison did not commit to returning to practice on Thursday, and there is at least mild concern about his Week 20 availability.

  • Carroll had 'big meeting' with CB Sherman
    Coach Pete Carroll said he had a "big meeting" with Richard Sherman after the season and discussed his numerous outbursts.

    Advice: "Probably the biggest regret is that we showed some bad expressions and stuff on the sidelines," Carroll said. "I had a big meeting with Richard going out, and he has some regrets about this season. It was a difficult year for him. The media thing was a big deal and all that." Sherman went after DC Kris Richard on the sideline in October, then called out OC Darrell Bevell in-game and post-game in Week 15. He also had a verbal exchange with a reporter late in the season. Sherman's antics have grown tired, but the Seahawks seem willing to put up with him for at least another year. Sherman is still playing at an elite level and only turns 29 in March.

  • Beat writer predicts Dallas will release Romo
    ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer ultimately expects Dallas to release Tony Romo this offseason.

    Advice: While trading Romo is the Cowboys' "No. 1 priority," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it could be difficult for Dallas to find the compensation it desires when teams already know the Cowboys don't want him. Archer expects there to be "too many hoops to jump through" to pull off a trade, and the biggest one in particular will be how to swallow the massive $24.7 million cap hit. By designating Romo as a post-June 1 cut, the Cowboys could spread the cap hit out over the next two years and clear $14 million in 2017, allowing them resources to upgrade the defense.

"Don't think for one minute if you see something written or something said about what and where Romo is going to be, relative to our team, that there's any credibility to it." While he may be technically telling the truth that a final decision has yet to be made, there is almost zero chance Romo is back with the Cowboys next year. How he leaves and where he goes are the only real questions remaining. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:18 am

He again said Romo would like to land with the Broncos, but added Denver does not "seem inclined to make that move." With it all but decided Romo will be playing elsewhere next season, the only questions remaining are where he ends up and how he gets there.

  • Sherman dealt with 'significant' MCL injury
    Speaking Monday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll revealed Richard Sherman played through a "significant" MCL injury in the second half of the season.

    Advice: Carroll said the injury "weighed on" Sherman mentally. Carroll might have been trying to explain away a season that was solid, but not quite up to Sherman's recent standards. Sherman's knee never showed up on the injury report, so the boundary-pushing Seahawks could be hearing from the league. Carroll did confirm Sherman won't need surgery. Two months shy of his 29th birthday, Sherman has played through a number of injuries in recent years, but never missed a game. He should have at least one more elite season left in the tank.

  • Allison held to three catches in win over Dallas
    Geronimo Allison provided three catches for 46 yards on five targets Sunday in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

    Advice: Allison had a big role early in the game as the Packers jumped out to a 21-3 lead in the second quarter but wasn’t targeted after halftime. The undrafted rookie has done enough to stay in the Packers’ rotation but could see his snap count significantly reduced if Jordy Nelson (broken ribs) returns to the lineup next week.

  • Rapoport: Romo would prefer to play in Denver
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Broncos are Tony Romo's "No. 1 spot."

    Advice: With Dak Prescott staking his claim to the starting job in Dallas, the Cowboys will certainly look to shop Romo this offseason. Denver would be his preferred destination, though according to Rapoport, the Broncos aren't "inclined" to trade for him. Other potential fits include the Cardinals, Jets and Texans. Rapoport is hearing from league executives that the Cowboys could hold onto Romo until a major injury arises and shop him to the quarterback-desperate team. Either way, the Cowboys should be able to fetch a first- or second-round pick for Romo. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:19 am

  • Amendola gains 15 yards vs. Texans
    Danny Amendola missed his two targets and rushed once for 15 yards in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.

    Advice: Amendola played only in four-receiver sets and wasn’t visible on special teams as Dion Lewis returned kickoffs and Julian Edelman continued to handle punts. Amendola’s highlight play was a fourth-quarter double reverse that gained 15. Amendola will remain game-day insurance behind the Patriots' featured receivers in the Conference Championship round.

    Advice: "I'm hoping he'll do a little bit today," McCarthy said. Janis sat out Wednesday's session after picking up a quad injury in the Wild Card win. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) extremely unlikely to play, Janis should have a bigger role on offense if he is able to suit up. He is also an key member of the Packers' special teams unit.

    Packers WR Geronimo Allison is facing marijuana charges stemming from a September arrest.

    Advice: Arrested in September, Allison was charged in December. He has a court date later this month. It's unclear if any of this is news to the Packers, but it's unlikely. With Jordy Nelson (ribs) banged up, Allison will probably be Green Bay's No. 3 receiver for the Divisional Round. He had a productive final few weeks of the regular season with Randall Cobb sidelined. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:03 pm
