The Rams notified the Convention and Visitor's Commission of St. Louis that they'll go year-to-year on their lease with the Edward Jones Dome.

It's the expected procedural move, so this isn't earth-shattering news by any means. The Rams will remain in St. Louis for the 2015 season, but everything after that is up in the air. NFL Network's Albert Breer reported Monday that owner Stan Kroenke's stadium-plan designs in Inglewood, CA were met with "quiet applause" in the league office. St. Louis recently revealed its own stadium proposal, but financing the venue is a major hurdle. This story will remain an offseason headline.

Former Bears DC Mel Tucker has accepted a position as the secondary coach at Alabama.

It's quite the step down for Tucker, going from an NFL defensive coordinator to position coach at the college level. In Tuscaloosa, Tucker will work under Nick Saban, who is a maven of defensive backs himself.

Suspended WR Justin Blackmon pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge on November 20.

The charge will be reduced to misdemeanor disorderly conduct if Blackmon commits no crimes six months after November 20. According to beat writer Michael DiRocco, the Jaguars need Blackmon to apply for reinstatement "within the next five weeks." From the date Blackmon fills out the application, Roger Goodell would have 60 days to decide whether to reinstate him to the NFL.

The player rep for free agent Justin Houston was seen meeting with Chiefs GM John Dorsey at last week's Senior Bowl.

It's a slow news day, indeed. Houston is repped by Joel Segal, who will surely seek top dollar for his client, arguably the top outside-edge pass rusher on the market. If Segal and Dorsey indeed met regarding Houston in Mobile, it's believed it was the first meeting of its kind since the Chiefs' season ended. Houston is going to want over $10 million per year.

Mike Jurecki of XTRA 910 Phoenix is hearing the Cardinals will name OLBs coach James Bettcher their defensive coordinator.

He would be getting the nod over DBs coach Nick Rapone. Bettcher has spent the last two seasons as Arizona's outside linebackers coach, helping to develop Matt Shaughnessy and Alex Okafor. Bettcher would likely only make slight tweaks to outgoing DC Todd Bowles' scheme after working under him.

Raiders re-signed SS Charles Woodson to a one-year contract.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie has a curious affinity for declining veterans. Woodson remains a team leader at age 38, but his on-field play slipped precipitously as the 2014 season progressed. He wound up grading out 68th among 87 qualifiers in PFF's safety grades, but did rack up 113 tackles and four interceptions. Woodson is very likely to return as a 2015 starter.

Vernon Davis promises he will participate in the 49ers' offseason program.

Davis skipped almost all of the 49ers' offseason last year before turning in a career-worst season. Davis turns 31 years old later this week and it's fair to wonder if he's reached his decline phase. He failed to produce in the passing game last season and even seemed to hit a wall as a run blocker.

FOX's Jay Glazer reports the NFL has identified a Patriots locker room attendant as a "strong person of interest" in the ball-deflation scandal.

The league finally has its Ollie North. Per Glazer, the attendant "allegedly took balls from the officials' locker room to another area on way to the field." There is reportedly video of the incident. Glazer says the league is "still gauging if any wrong doing occurred." It's been obvious from Day 1 the Pats were going to set up some sort of underling as the fall guy, the only question is if he'll sing. The entire "scandal" is long past played out. It would be a shame were it to dominate all pre-SB chatter.
