In his year-end press conference, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he knew that Le'Veon Bell was playing with a groin injury down the stretch.

That injury limited Bell to just 11 snaps in Sunday's AFC title game. "It was just something to manage," said Tomlin. "I was aware of it, but it wasn't significant to the point where it affected planning or the anticipation of planning in anyway." The Seahawks are in some hot water for not reporting Richard Sherman's knee injury and it will be interesting to see if the Steelers face a similar backlash. As of now, it looks like Bell should have a normal offseason. Melvin Gordon has been tapped to replace Bell on the AFC Pro Bowl roster.

According to ESPN's Mike Triplett, Saints WRs coach John Morton has emerged as a candidate for the Jets' opening at offensive coordinator.

The Jets are looking to replace Chan Gailey, who "retired" at the end of the 2016 season. Morton oversaw arguably the league's best receiving corps this year in New Orleans. The Jets are also said to be pursuing former Texans OC George Godsey. Ultimately it won't matter who the Jets hire until they find a solution at quarterback. Perhaps they'll enter the Tony Romo sweepstakes.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said this is not the first time he has heard Ben Roethlisberger talk about retirement.

Roethlisberger said on Tuesday he would "consider all options" including "if there’s going to be a next season" in the next couple weeks. Tomlin said he is taking the comments seriously, but he is not alarmed or surprised by the notion. Ben is only 34 and likely will have to return a large chunk of his signing bonus if he decides to walk away this offseason. There is little chance he makes that decision.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he is in wait-and-see mode with suspended WR Martavis Bryant.

Bryant applied for reinstatement earlier this month, and Tomlin said he is "hopeful" the receiver will be allowed back in the league. As we have learned from Aldon Smith, being eligible for reinstatement does not guarantee it will happen, but Bryant seems to have taken the necessary steps during his ban. Tomlin's hope could end up being well-founded.

Falcons C Alex Mack (ankle) said he will be ready for the Super Bowl.

Mack is reportedly dealing with a "swollen, painful sprained ankle" which will keep him out of practice this week, but it was always likely he would gut it out in the biggest game of the year. Still, his practice participation will be worth monitoring next week.

In a radio interview, Ben Roethlisberger said he will "take some time" to "consider all options" this offseason.

"To consider health, and family and things like that and just kind of take some time away to evaluate next season, if there’s going to be a next season," Roethlisberger said. Ben has taken a beating during his 13 seasons in the NFL, but he is only 34 and would owe Pittsburgh $18.6 million if he walks away. It would be beyond shocking if he decides to retire.

The MMQB's Andrew Brandt does not believe there will be a "robust market" for Tony Romo.

"At this point in his career, which has recently been dominated by injuries, he cannot be counted on as a starting quarterback in 2017," Brandt wrote, "and trade offers will reflect that." Owed $14 million in 2017 and with no guarantees left, Romo's contract is not a deterrent to a potential trade, but it seems likely he will be available for free on the open market at some point this offseason, which is obviously a more palatable price for a quarterback who needs to prove he can last more than one or two games. With the specter of retirement also certain to hurt his trade value, the Cowboys will be lucky to get anything for Romo.

The MMQB's Andrew Brandt believes it is "delusional" to think Jimmy Garoppolo will fetch a first-round pick.

ESPN's Adam Schefter believes the Eagles' haul for Sam Bradford (1st and 4th) is the "starting point" in trade negotiations for Garoppolo, but Brandt does not believe the two situations are comparable, as the Vikings were desperate after losing Teddy Bridgewater to a serious knee injury. If the Patriots cannot nab a first or early-second, they could decide to let Garoppolo play out the final year of his contract and hope for a high conditional pick when he inevitably signs a massive deal in free agency.
