Footballguys view: The Chiefs cut Flowers last year in a move to create more salary cap space. The Chargers picked him up, and Flowers responded with a good season. He can line up outside or inside as a slot corner. Flowers is going to get quite a bit of interest on the open market.

  Colts | Mike C. Adams wants to stay in Indy    Thu Feb 26, 07:24 AM

Free-agent FS Mike C. Adams (Colts) wants to stay with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a radio interview.

Footballguys view: Adams could generate some interest on the open market because of his Pro Bowl season in 2014 with the Colts. We think the Broncos would consider bringing him back (he played for them in 2012-2013) if they let Rahim Moore leave in free agency. The Colts would be wise to lock up Adams if they can.

Denver Broncos impending free-agent DT Terrance Knighton, OG Orlando Franklin and FS Rahim Moore are not expected to return to the team next season.

Footballguys view: Knighton could move on to the Oakland Raiders where he'd be reunited with Jack Del Rio for a third time in his career. Franklin probably will get some looks at tackle again, and Moore might be a bit too pricey for the Broncos to keep around.

Throughout the combine he has been checking in a 1.45 seconds in the first 10 yards, but for some reason he was at 1.55 in Saturday's workout.

Footballguys view: Smith will be able to get his time back where he wants at the Ohio State pro day. Most see Smith as a second-round pick.

  Chiefs | Ron Parker in talks with team    Sat Feb 21, 03:12 AM

Free-agent CB Ron Parker (Chiefs) is in talks with the Kansas City Chiefs to return to the club in 2015. Parker wants $6 million a season in his contract.

Footballguys view: It would be a wise move for the Chiefs to keep Parker around. He finished second on the team in tackles last year (94 total), starting 15 games (11 at safety) for Kansas City. Parker subbed in for Eric Berry from Weeks 3 to 9 while Berry recovered from a high ankle sprain. He then made the move to strong safety after Berry was placed on the non-football injury list after being diagnosed with lymphoma in Week 13. At this time, it's unknown if Berry will play in 2015.

  Seahawks | Jeremy Lane suffered torn ACL    Fri Feb 20, 12:38 PM

Seattle Seahawks CB Jeremy Lane (wrist, knee) suffered a compound fracture of his wrist and a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee during the Super Bowl.

Footballguys view: I may not have been doctor at the time of the Super Bowl but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express the night before, so I was confident that this injury was bad when we saw it. We knew it would be a long journey to come back from the injury. As has been said before, for a corner to injure his arm is less serious than a leg injury, so we are optimistic.

Footballguys view: Newman's not the same player he used to be. The Bengals could be ready to move on, and there's likely a CB-needy team who could show interest.
