The New York Daily News believes Giants DC Perry Fewell's job is "certainly in danger."
The 2014 Giants ranked in the bottom five of the NFL's defensive rankings for the third time in Fewell's three seasons as coordinator. Fewell has generated head-coaching interest in recent seasons, but his performance as the Giants' DC never matched up with those inquiries. The Giants' coaching staff is otherwise expected to return intact, with Tom Coughlin at HC and Ben McAdoo at OC.
Titans OLB Kamerion Wimbley managed a career-low two sacks in 2014.
The Titans hoped that their conversion to a 3-4 defense would spark Wimbley at outside linebacker. He flopped instead, grading out poorly as both a run defender and pass rusher per Pro Football Focus. Wimbley is due nearly $3 million in 2015 and is 31 years old. His future in Nashville seems bleak.
Following Sunday's Week 17 loss, Titans CEO Tommy Smith told Nate Washington he wants him back with the team in 2015.
Smith was seen comforting an emotional Washington in the locker room after the 31-year-old went catch-less against the Colts. Washington has little left to offer on the field. An impending free agent, Washington should be available for close to the veteran's minimum and affordable for the Titans to re-sign.
The Dolphins made DB Walt Aikens a healthy scratch in Week 17 for a violation of team rules.
Aikens was expected to be a core contributor in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Instead, he didn't play at all. Primarily a special teamer, Aikens did earn defensive snaps down the stretch of his rookie season. There are no indications that Aiken's rules violation is a concern for his long-term outlook in Miami.
Levine Toilolo caught two passes for 14 yards in the Falcons' Week 17 loss to the Panthers.
Mainly a blocker, Toilolo wraps up his sophomore season with 31 catches for 238 yards and two touchdowns. Some pegged Toilolo as a potential sleeper who was filling Tony Gonzalez's shoes, but Toilolo predictably was kept in an inline-blocking role. He'll come back to fill the same role in 2015. Expect the Falcons to try and find a pass-catching tight end for Matt Ryan this offseason.
Wes Welker caught two passes for 42 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Raiders.
Welker saw just two targets on a day Manning attempted 37 passes. It's a fitting end to the season for the artist formerly known as the slot machine, as he averaged just 4.5 targets per game in 14 outings. Welker, now 33, is a complementary player even when Julius Thomas is limited as he has been for the last month. The Broncos have earned the AFC's No. 2 seed and a first-round bye.
Harry Douglas caught five passes for 28 yards in the Falcons' Week 17 loss to the Panthers.
Douglas ends an injury-plagued season with 51 catches for 556 yards and two touchdowns. He's proven to be very serviceable in the Falcons' pass-happy attack when called upon, but Douglas is due a non-guaranteed $3.5 million salary in 2015 as a 31-year-old. The Falcons have some wiggle room under the cap, but with so many holes on the roster and likely a new regime coming in, Douglas could find himself on the chopping block.
Jermaine Gresham suffered a lower back injury in Sunday night's Week 17 game against the Steelers.
The Bengals listed Gresham as questionable, but he was able to return. He only ended up missing the first quarter.
