  Broncos | Joe Woods officially promoted    Tue Jan 17, 02:40 PM

Denver Broncos defensive backs coach Joe Woods was officially promoted to defensive coordinator, as expected, Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Woods, who has 25 years of coaching experience, has instructed defensive backs in the NFL for the last 13 seasons with Denver (2015-16), Oakland (2014), Minnesota (2006-13) and Tampa Bay (2004-05). During his NFL coaching tenure, Woods has coached five players to 10 total Pro Bowl selections. His secondaries have been part of No. 1 pass defenses on three occasions (2004, '15-16), and his teams have allowed fewer than three 300-yard passers per season.

  Steelers | Ladarius Green struggling to get back    Tue Jan 17, 12:37 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Ladarius Green (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Footballguys view: If Green could be back for the AFC Championship Game that would be a boost for the high-powered Steelers offense. In his first season with the Steelers, Green was only available for six games. We don't think he's going to be ready for this game.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson still a longshot for Sunday    Tue Jan 17, 12:27 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (ribs) has a chance to play in the NFC Championship Game against the Atlanta Falcons, but it is only a small chance, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Nelson has to be considered a game-time decision. If there's any way he can play, Nelson will find a way. Unless we hear positive reports out of practice, we don't think Nelson plays.

  Dolphins | Kiko Alonso could move to OLB    Tue Jan 17, 12:21 PM

Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso, the team's leading tackler in 2016, may be asked to switch from middle linebacker to outside linebacker in order to give the team more flexibility in the draft and free agency.

Footballguys view: That's a wise move for many reasons. It's a move that gives the team personnel flexibility, but it also could keep Alonso healthier as he won't be as heavily relied on as a run-stopper.

Kansas City Chiefs co-offensive coordinator Brad Childress is 'out of the picture' in the Buffalo Bills' search to find an offensive coordinator, according to Buffalo News' Vic Carucci.

Footballguys view: It's like Groundhogs Day for the Chiefs offense (thanks Alex Smith!). Keeping Childress only cements that notion further.

  Texans | HOU wants A.J. Bouye back    Tue Jan 17, 11:49 AM

Houston Texans impending free-agent CB A.J. Bouye is a player the team would like to re-sign, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Footballguys view: Bouye worked his way up the depth chart this season, and he's arguably one of the best corners that will be on the open market in 2017. The Texans may want to keep him, but if some team throws crazy money at Bouye he could move on.

  Chargers | Branden Oliver should return    Tue Jan 17, 10:43 AM

Los Angeles Chargers restricted free-agent RB Branden Oliver (Achilles') has a good chance to return to the team.

Footballguys view: The Chargers could place a low-round tender on Oliver, and they'd likely be able to keep him at that price. When healthy, Oliver could work as a change-of-pace back behind Melvin Gordon. With Danny Woodhead set to be a free agent, the Chargers need a backup plan.

  Eagles | Jason Kelce may have new uniform    Tue Jan 17, 09:38 AM

  Seahawks | Jimmy Graham will likely be back    Tue Jan 17, 09:36 AM

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is likely to return to the Seahawks next year, and head coach Pete Carroll raved about his play in 2016. 'I thought Jimmy had a terrific year,' Carroll said. 'He was explosive. He was dynamic. He blocked like he's never blocked before. He became a factor on the perimeter blocking stuff, and he's a highlight film. He's got so many big plays that he made during the year.'

Footballguys view: It's remarkable to think what Graham did this year considering he was coming off a torn patellar tendon. He's got a cap number of $10 million with a $2 million roster bonus due this spring. It's likely the Seahawks work to extend Graham to lower that number.

  49ers | 49ers 'honing in on' hiring Kyle Shanahan    Tue Jan 17, 12:58 AM

The San Francisco 49ers are -- and have been -- 'honing in on hiring' Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as their next head coach, according to sources.

Footballguys view: With Patriots OC Josh McDaniels taking his name out of the running, Shanahan clearly becomes the guy for the 49ers. He's turned Matt Ryan into an MVP candidate and the Falcons offense is one of the most high-powered units in the league. We're excited about what he could do in San Francisco, but there's a lot of work to be done before the 49ers are playoff contenders again.

  Jaguars | 'Good chance' Jags hire Chip Kelly as OC    Tue Jan 17, 12:51 AM

Former San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has a 'good chance' of being hired as the Jacksonville Jaguars' new offensive coordinator. He went into the interview believing he was going to get an offer and he already 'has some assistant hires ready.'

Footballguys view: That would be say the least. The Jaguars offense has the pieces to be a high-powered unit if someone figures out what's wrong with QB Blake Bortles. Doug Marrone is a bright head coach, but it seems like an odd fit with Kelly running the offense. We're all for bold decisions, and this could propel Jacksonville to the next level....or it could end in spectacularly horrible fashion. You just never know with Kelly.

  Cowboys | Trading Tony Romo is 'No. 1 priority'    Tue Jan 17, 12:36 AM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo is 'not going to be on (the team) in 2017,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who states that trading the veteran quarterback is their 'No. 1 priority this offseason.'

Footballguys view: It's time for Romo to move on as the Cowboys are set with Dak Prescott as their starting quarterback. Reports have indicated that Romo wants to go to the Broncos, but they don't have any interest in trading for least at this time. There are plenty of teams who should be interested, but it comes down to Romo's contract (and whether or not it will be re-worked) and what the Cowboys actually want for the veteran passer.
