Broncos TE Owen Daniels is considering retirement.
"Of course. That's definitely an option," said Daniels. "But I'm a man of my word, I signed a three-year deal, so I'd like to keep playing." Daniels turns 34 in November. It sounds like he’ll play next season, but isn’t a lock to return at his $3.5M salary.
TCU QB Trevone Boykin will work with the quarterbacks at the Combine.
Boykin skipped the Senior Bowl after refusing to play receiver. How he throws at the Combine will make-or-break whether he stays at quarterback. Boykin was one of the top players in college over the last two years, but position/off-field concerns have his draftability in question.
ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys plan to restructure LT Tyron Smith’s contract.
Dallas currently has $13.5 million in cap space. Restructuring Smith and DT Tyrone Crawford creates $12M in savings. The Cowboys could save $9.1M from making Brandon Carr a post-June cut.
The Cowboys could have interest in free agent Colt McCoy.
McCoy would be a low-cost option behind Tony Romo, but isn’t a huge upgrade on Kellen Moore.
Dallas is more likely to add a backup through the draft.
ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker reports DT Earl Mitchell could be a cap cut.
Signed to a four-year, $16 million contract prior to the 2014 season, Mitchell has recorded two sacks and 55 tackles in 28 games with the Dolphins. He battled back and calf injuries last season and never settled in next to Ndamukong Suh. Miami can save $2.5 million against the cap by releasing Mitchell.
KBOI Boise reports Broncos S Shiloh Keo was arrested for driving under the influence early Saturday morning in Ada County, Idaho.
Keo was booked into the Ada County Jail at 2:19 a.m. Saturday morning. Keo played his college ball at the University of Idaho and still makes his home there in the offseason. A fifth-round pick of the Texans in 2011, Keo spent 2014 out of the league before latching on with the Broncos in December.
ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner believes RG Rodger Saffold (shoulder) is a possible cap cut.
Saffold had his left shoulder surgically repaired last January and landed on injured reserve in October with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He is expected to be fully healed by mid-March, but his long injury history and below-average play make him a strong candidate to be cut. Saffold is set to count $5.65 million against the cap next season.
Broncos CB Aqib Talib was fined $26,044 for his conduct in the Super Bowl.
Talib racked up two personal fouls in the win including a dangerous play in which he grabbed and twisted Corey Brown down by his facemask. Talib admitted after he grabbed the facemask on purpose. The NFL was reportedly considering a suspension for the infraction, but this fine likely puts that possibility to bed. A repeat offender who was suspended for Week 10 after poking Colts TE Dwayne Allen in the eye, Talib is lucky to escape without a ban.
