Denver Broncos impending free-agent TE Julius Thomas discussed with Woody Paige and Les Shapiro on The Sports Show Friday, Jan. 30, the chances of him returning to the Broncos. 'I really don't know. To be perfectly honest, it hasn't even been discussed for me yet,' Thomas said. He did go on to say he'd love to come back, but he mentioned there are several important factors when determining where he'll sign.

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 30, and is probable for the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: Brady is good to go for the big game. We'll see how much the Seahawks defense will be able to slow down the Patriots passing game.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch probable     Fri Jan 30, 06:44 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) fully practiced Friday, Jan. 30, and is probable for the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: Lynch is going to be the centerpiece of the Seahawks offense like he always is. The last time these two teams faced (2012), Lynch only had 15 carries for 41 yards. We're expecting a greater total on Sunday.

  Steelers | Sign Ian Wild    Fri Jan 30, 04:46 PM

The Pittsburgh Steelers signed FS Ian Wild Friday, Jan. 30. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Steelers have signed yet another player from the CFL. Wild played inside linebacker and safety for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers up in Canada, and he registered 73 tackles in 2014. In addition to starring on defense, Wild can be counted on as a long-snapper as well. Coming out of Mercyhurst University, Wild was originally signed as an undrafted free agent (2012) by the Buffalo Bills.

  Giants | Prince Amukamara on track    Fri Jan 30, 03:53 PM

New York Giants CB Prince Amukamara (biceps) is on track to in his recovery from a torn biceps. Amukamara could be cleared for full activity by the beginning of March and would be ready for the start of minicamp and training camp. 'I feel good. No worries at all. I'll be set to go,' Amukamara said.

Footballguys view: A good sign for the young cornerback here. Amukamara is likely to be limited in minicamp as the team doesn't want to re-aggravate the injury. However, if all goes well, we'd expect Amukamara to be a full participant for training camp.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning not worried about physical    Fri Jan 30, 01:55 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning (quadriceps) said he's not worried at all about no passing the physical he's due to take March 1. His $19 million salary for the 2015 season would become guaranteed March 9 if he decides to come back, and he'll have to pass a physical to make sure he's good to go. 'I don't see that physical being that significant to tell you the truth as far as that revelation,' Manning said. 'I feel pretty confident that I would pass that physical and my neck is in good shape.'

Footballguys view: The physical he takes in early March will just be a confirmation for the team...and it will fully guarantee his 2015 salary of $21.5 million. We have a feeling that Manning will come back, and he will make a decision around the Scouting Combine.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning not worried about offense    Fri Jan 30, 01:01 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning said he feels comfortable in almost any offense 'aside from the Delaware Blue Hen Wing T.' He said that a change to a new offensive philosophy by head coach Gary Kubiak shouldn't be a problem.

Footballguys view: Manning, a historian of the game, broke off a Tubby Raymond blast this morning in a press conference. That's pretty solid. Kubiak made Matt Schaub work, and we have no doubts Manning would be a very productive in Denver's new system.

  Broncos | Peyton Manning's decision may come soon    Fri Jan 30, 12:43 PM

Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning may make a decision on whether he plans to return for another season in the near future, according to his dad, Archie Manning. Archie thinks his son will make his decision 'maybe in the next week or two.' 'He's given a lot of thought to it,' Archie Manning said. 'My advice for him is to go through the process, get away a little bit, let your leg heal, give it a lot of thought and decide what you're going to do ... (I) think he's taken a good evaluation of where he is physically.'

Footballguys view: Manning isn't going to keep everyone waiting around. He knows the team needs to know which way they're moving forward. We think his decision will be to return in 2015, and we'd imagine that sometime around the Scouting Combine we'll find out.

  Patriots | LeGarrette Blount has charges withdrawn    Fri Jan 30, 10:41 AM

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount completed his 50 hours of community service, and his drug charge from earlier this season has been withdrawn, according to his attorney.

Footballguys view: Blount was charged with marijuana possession in August with Le'Veon Bell. Now that he's been through the legal process, the NFL could step in with a fine or suspension. If suspended for 2015, we can't see it being more than maybe a game or two. The NFL might decide just to fine Blount instead.

  Bears | Brandon Marshall may not return    Fri Jan 30, 10:32 AM

Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall may not return to the team in 2015, in the opinion of ESPNChicago.com's Michael C. Wright. The thinking is that Marshall and WR Alshon Jeffery are too similar of receivers, and the team needs more diversity at the position. Wright also wrote that this was strictly a possibility, and he expects Marshall to be on the team in 2015.

Footballguys view: The Bears have gone "all in" with QB Jay Cutler this offseason. Getting rid of Marshall would go against that direction. We don't see Marshall playing anywhere else in 2015. The Bears will give this group one more chance to prove themselves. If they fail, then expect multiple changes before 2016.

  CFL | Austin Collie to British Columbia    Fri Jan 30, 02:58 AM

Clarifying a previous report, free-agent WR Austin Collie (Patriots) is headed to the British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League. Initial information had Collie going to the Montreal Alouettes.

Footballguys view: Either way, it's good to see Collie back in football. Injuries and concussion problems forced him out of the NFL after flashing briefly with the Colts.

  Eagles | LeSean McCoy open to restructure    Fri Jan 30, 02:22 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy has said he would restructure his contract to lower the $11.95 million cap hit for 2015, but he will not take a pay cut.

Footballguys view: McCoy still has $4.4 million in dead money left on his deal. While he says he won't take a pay cut, we're not so sure. The Eagles could move some of the money around to give themselves more room underneath the salary cap this year. Stay tuned.

  Patriots | Tom Brady practices fully Thursday    Thu Jan 29, 10:15 PM

New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (ankle) was able to go through a full practice session Thursday, Jan. 29.

Footballguys view: "Thank goodness - we were worried" said nobody ever. Brady was already fighting off a cold and so this is just one more thing that really won't throw him off. It's not as if mobility is huge for his game anyway. He will be fine until perhaps the Seahawks start to blitz.

  Seahawks | Marshawn Lynch practices in full    Thu Jan 29, 09:49 PM

Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back) went through a full practice session Thursday, Jan. 29.

Footballguys view: Lynch will be fine and likely and integral part of any offensive plan for Seattle on Sunday. Ultimately, the real interesting question revolves around what the Seahawks do with him with the end of his contract looming. Can they keep both he and Russell Wilson? And will Wilson be as effective without Lynch? Important questions, but they'll keep until after Sunday.

  Patriots | Jimmy Garoppolo impressing in practice    Thu Jan 29, 08:42 PM

New England Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo has been impressing in his mimicking of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson in practice. He has been studying the dual threat quarterback, and trying his best in practice to get the Patriots ready for Super Bowl XLIX. 'I've had to get a lot faster real fast,' Garoppolo said. 'He's an athletic guy, so (I am) trying to extend plays and give those guys the best looks I can. It's a tough balance between studying their offense and studying our defense, so it's a little bit of time management.'

Footballguys view: These are the interesting things we learn during media sessions when it's not about Marshawn Lynch not speaking. Many teams do this to varying degrees of effectiveness. The real question is, will Garoppolo be ready if something happens to Tom Brady? One thing for sure - Patriots fans won't be.

  Redskins | Robert Griffin 'I wasn't healthy and it sucked'    Thu Jan 29, 08:21 PM

John Keim, from ESPN.com, reports Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III blames his 2014 woes on his injured ankle. Griffin said, "Last year I wasn't healthy, and it sucked, there's no other way to say it other than that. When you get broken and dragged home in the second week of the season ... When you and your team have big things in mind ... It's just getting healthy, getting the mental break, getting a chance to spend time with family, and then formulate my plan going forward for this year, and go ahead and win games and be playing again at this time next year."

Footballguys view: Dynasty owners should not be giving up on Griffin. Things have gone off the rails for him since his breakout rookie season of 2012. We'll see if Griffin can get back on track this year. We see 2015 as a make-or-break season for the athletic quarterback.

  Buccaneers | Sights set on QB Marcus Mariota?    Thu Jan 29, 08:19 PM

According to Adam Schefter, from ESPN, there's a real sense that Tampa Bay has its sights set on Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota with the number one overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Footballguys view: Mariota or Jameis Winston (Florida State) should be the number one pick in the draft. Winston is the more pro-ready passer, and there's some Ben Roethlisberger to his game. Mariota has a game similar to that of Alex Smith (Chiefs), a former number one pick himself. Like Smith, Mariota played in a spread system in college and made easier throws to mostly wide open receivers. Mariota may not throw at the Scouting Combine in February due to a shoulder injury he suffered in the National Championship Game.

  Eagles | Nick Foles 'I plan on being in Philly'    Thu Jan 29, 08:17 PM

According to Jeff McLane, from Philly.com, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is planning on being with the Eagles in 2015. Foles, who was on Radio Row at the Super Bowl, said that he was tuning out the noise. Asked if he thought he would be back as the starter in 2015, he said, "I plan on being back and being in Philly."

Footballguys view: There are rumors circulating that Foles could be on the trade block, and some think the Rams could be interested. Foles is not a natural fit for the Chip Kelly system, and we could see the Eagles try to move up in the draft for QB Marcus Mariota (Oregon). He's planning on being in Philly, but we wouldn't be surprised to see Foles dealt before the season starts.

  Cardinals | Jonathan Dwyer sentenced to probation    Thu Jan 29, 08:09 PM

According to the Associated Press, Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and been placed on probation in a case stemming from alleged assaults on his wife during arguments at their apartment last year.

Footballguys view: After Dwyer's arrest in September, the Cardinals placed him on the reserve/non-football illness list. That move kept him from playing for the Cardinals in 2014. Dwyer is set to be a free agent in 2015, and there might be a small market for him now that this legal case is behind him.

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert (elbow, shoulder) is progressing, according to head coach Marvin Lewis.

  Bengals | Marvin Jones progressing    Thu Jan 29, 07:31 PM

Cincinnati Bengals WR Marvin Jones (ankle) is progressing well, according to head coach Marvin Lewis. Jones is recovering from a broken foot he suffered last season.

Footballguys view: An important note for dynasty owners here. The Bengals offense is all about running the ball with OC Hue Jackson, but Jones will help things open up in the passing game.

  Cardinals | Larry Fitzgerald contract should get done    Thu Jan 29, 05:52 PM

Arizona Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald's new contract should be able to get worked out this offseason, according to team president Michael Bidwill. 'Larry and I have met about it, and I know he's interested in getting something resolved,' Bidwill said. 'I think we'll get this all worked out.'

Footballguys view: Under his current contract, Fitzgerald has a cap hit of $23.6 million in 2015, and there's still over $14 million left in dead money. The Cardinals need to shuffle that money around to give themselves more salary-cap room.

  Chargers | Mike Nolan hired as LBs coach    Thu Jan 29, 02:46 PM

Former Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator Mike Nolan was hired by the San Diego Chargers Thursday, Jan. 29, as their new linebackers coach.

Footballguys view: Nolan's defense was terrible with the Falcons, but he gets an upgrade in personnel with the Chargers. We like the fit for John Pagano's defense.

  Seahawks | Earl Thomas given HGH test    Thu Jan 29, 01:07 PM

Seattle Seahawks FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) was administered a human growth hormone test by the league Wednesday, Jan. 28, and he believes it was directed at him after he recovered fast from his injury in the NFC Championship game. Thomas was able to practice in full Wednesday, Jan. 28.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks have been under the microscope since they had a few players test positive for Adderall use. Thomas should be fine, and will be able to play Sunday.

  Steelers | Le'Veon Bell able to work out    Thu Jan 29, 12:56 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell (knee) has been able to work out despite ending the season with an injured knee. 'The knee is close to 100%,' Bell said. 'I'm probably about 85-90%, been able to run on it a little bit. So I'm getting back to work out a little.'

Footballguys view: Bell had been one of the best running back in the NFL before is entering. You should be a round draft pick in fantasy draft next year if he stays on pace with his rehab.

  Eagles | Ed Marynowitz promoted    Thu Jan 29, 10:20 AM

Philadelphia Eagles assistant director of player personnel Ed Marynowitz was promoted to vice president of player personnel Thursday, Jan. 29.

  Bears | Jay Feely says Jay Cutler is not a leader    Thu Jan 29, 09:45 AM

Chicago Bears PK Jay Feely said QB Jay Cutler isn't a leader off of the field. 'That's not who he is. You're going to have a vacuum there,' Feely said on Mad Dog Sports Radio. 'So you have to know that as a general manager or a head coach, 'Hey, we're not going to have that leadership from this position, so we've really got to have other guys that are going to step up and are going to be our verbal leaders.''

Footballguys view: Feely is not saying anything people haven't thought for most of Cutler's pro career. The Bears seem to be "all in" with Cutler this year. Part of that (most?) is his $19.5 million in dead money for 2015. If Cutler doesn't get it done this year, the Bears could easily cut him before 2016 as there's only $3 million left in dead money on his deal at that time. It's a make-or-break year for Cutler.

  Broncos | Joe Woods hired    Thu Jan 29, 03:58 AM

Former Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive back coach Joe Woods was hired in the same capacity by the Denver Broncos.

Footballguys view: Woods has 23 years of coaching experience, including 11 seasons as an NFL defensive backs coach with Oakland (2014), Minnesota (2006-13) and Tampa Bay (2004-05). During his eight years with the Vikings, Woods coach cornerback Antoine Winfield, who made three consecutive Pro Bowls (2008-10) under his instruction. Woods entered the NFL as a defensive backs coach with Tampa Bay, helping the Buccaneers rank first in the NFL in pass defense (172.1 ypg) during his two seasons (2004-05) with the team. Cornerback Ronde Barber earned first-team All-Pro recognition from the Associated Press following both of his seasons playing for Woods.

Former Houston Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips was hired for the same position by the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, Jan. 28. He signed a two-year contract, financial terms of which were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: This means the Broncos will be moving to a 3-4 defense. This aggressive approach should be a great move for both Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware. The Broncos already have a fantastic secondary, but they'll have to find a nose tackle (Terrance Knighton is a free agent) and one more inside linebacker to start next to Brandon Marshall.

  CFL | Austin Collie signed    Thu Jan 29, 03:27 AM

Free-agent WR Austin Collie (Patriots) signed a contract with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

  Browns | Joker Phillips hired    Thu Jan 29, 02:48 AM

Former Kentucky head coach Joker Phillips has joined the Cleveland Browns staff as wide receivers coach, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: A former wide receiver with tons of experience, Phillips takes over a position group that could be missing Josh Gordon (possible suspension) for all of 2015. At Kentucky, Phillips coached both Stevie Johnson (49ers) and Randall Cobb (Packers). We believe Andrew Hawkins will continue to shine for the Browns despite the huge question mark at quarterback.

  Bengals | Jermaine Gresham in Cincy's plans?    Wed Jan 28, 04:58 PM

Cincinnati Bengals TE Jermaine Gresham, a soon-to-be free agent, still has a place within the offense, according to offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. 'We have a way that we do things, and how we want to accomplish things,' Jackson said. 'Within what we asked him to do this year, he did some good things. There are some things he knows he needs to do to be better, and he will work at them to be better.'

Footballguys view: The Bengals won't go out of their way to bring Gresham back. However, if the price is right they'll make sure to extend a decent offer. If he returns, Gresham will once again be splitting time with Tyler Eifert.

  Chiefs | Alex Smith needs receivers?    Wed Jan 28, 04:50 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith needs more weapons around him, according to impending free-agent LB Justin Houston. He believes the Chiefs can win a championship with Smith. "For the past two years we had winning seasons. This year, I feel like our offensive line struggled a little bit, we had some injuries that caused him to get sacked more than usual. But I think we can do it," Houston noted Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Footballguys view: There shouldn't be a question mark behind the headline. Does Alex Smith need receivers? Of course he does! The Chiefs had the worst collection of WRs in the league last year. If they want to contend for the AFC West title, they need more weapons in the passing game. It was foolish for the Chiefs to pass on a WR in the first round of a historic WR draft class in 2014.

  Bills | Anthony Dixon has knee surgery    Wed Jan 28, 02:18 PM

Buffalo Bills RB Anthony Dixon (knee) underwent surgery for a partially torn meniscus in his knee Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Footballguys view: This is just a minor procedure which should not keep Dixon from participating once training camp rolls around. We're sure the Bills will ease him back in at that time. Our very own Dr. Jene Bramel says this, "Since he played through injury and has reportedly already started rehab, it's probably relatively minor and they chose the procedure with the shorter of the two recovery periods."
