According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, the Raiders will be "looking to add another running back" this offseason.

Although Latavius Murray's final rushing stats (266-1,066-6) look solid on paper, Murray mixed in long bouts of ineffectiveness and also seemed to fall into coach Jack Del Rio's doghouse a few times. Caplan suggests the Raiders could make a run at free agent Matt Forte, who would almost certainly take over for Murray as Oakland's starter. The Raiders are flush with cap space and could easily beat out most teams if Forte is looking to break the bank. The Raiders were major players in the 2015 DeMarco Murray "sweepstakes."

The final three years of Anquan Boldin's contract voided.

He’s now a free agent. The move leaves the 49ers with $2.7M in dead money. Boldin managed a 69/789/5 line despite playing through injuries and a combination of Colin Kaepernick/Blaine Gabbert. He’ll be one of top wideouts available despite entering his age-36 season.

Carson Palmer’s $7.15 million base salary became fully guaranteed on Friday.

His $6.35 million roster bonus was also guaranteed. Palmer stayed healthy for all 16 games and set career highs in 2015, tying Tom Brady for second in MVP voting behind Cam Newton. The Cardinals have Palmer signed through 2017 for $29 million ($14.5M AAV).

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim "wouldn't pencil in" Matt Jones as Washington's No. 1 back for 2016.

After doing film study of Jones, Keim noted the third-round rookie's tendency to run too high, diminishing his lower-body power and leading to fumbles. Jones fumbled five times as a rookie, losing four. Keim also noted Jones didn't necessarily make strides as his rookie season progressed, averaging just 3.09 YPC on his final 70 runs. Jones currently stands clearly atop the depth chart, but he should face competition in training camp.

Teddy Bridgewater faced pressure on nearly 47 percent of his 2015 dropbacks.

He absorbed 44 sacks, sixth most in the NFL. The Vikings know their offensive line was a huge weakness, firing OL coach Jeff Davidson immediately after the season. The Vikings now have decisions to make on an ineffective and/or injury-riddled tackle crew of Matt Kalil, T.J. Clemmings, and Phil Loadholt. RG Mike Harris is a free agent and LG Brandon Fusco is coming off a down year.

Dolphins released CB Brice McCain.

McCain made 11 starts in the slot, but was frequently picked on by passing games. His release saves $2.5 million. Bobby McCain is an in-house candidate for nickel duties, though Miami plans to add multiple corners this offseason.
Feb 12 - 4:47 PM

Dolphins released DE Quinton Coples.

Coples had a $7.8 million team option for 2016. It's an expected move after he played just 78 snaps in six games with Miami last year. A 2012 first-round pick, Coples should draw interest in 4-3 schemes as a post-hype flyer.

ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects the Saints to keep C.J. Spiller on the roster, at least into training camp.

The Saints would actually lose salary cap space by releasing Spiller unless they designated him a post-June 1 cut, which would affect their salary cap down the road. Triplett writes there's a "good chance" Spiller will get "another summer to regain his spark" after he fell behind due to pre-season knee surgery in 2015. Spiller has always been an exciting talent, but he's also been a fantasy disappointment far more often than not. He'll turn 29 this August.
