Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports Chiefs co-OC Brad Childress is "out of the picture" for the Bills' vacant offensive coordinator position.

It is not clear why he has been dropped from the race, but it is possible the Chiefs blocked the move like they did when fellow co-OC Matt Nagy was drawing interest from the Jets earlier this month. With Childress gone, the Bills are running out of options. Former Jaguars OC Greg Olson is scheduled to interview on Thursday, and he looks like the best option remaining.

Jerry Jones said he has yet to decide what to do with Tony Romo this offseason.

"There's only one that can make that decision, and there's been no decision made," Jones said. "Don't think for one minute if you see something written or something said about what and where Romo is going to be, relative to our team, that there's any credibility to it." While he may be technically telling the truth that a final decision has yet to be made, there is almost zero chance Romo is back with the Cowboys next year. How he leaves and where he goes are the only real questions remaining.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien said, "We want [impending free agent CB] A.J. Bouye back."

"Just in talking to people around the league that I really trust, I think he’s viewed as a top corner," O'Brien said. "We really want him back and hopefully we can get something done where he can be back, but it’s tough." It is tough because Bouye is hitting free agency at the perfect time after a career year in his age-25 season. The corner did say he would like to return to Houston, however, and the Texans have a reasonable amount of cap space for 2017, although they also have a lot already invested in CBs Kareem Jackson and Johnathan Joseph. Along with addressing the quarterback situation, figuring out what to do with Bouye should be one of the Texans' top priorities this offseason.

USC CB Adoree' Jackson declared his intention to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

The winner of the 2016 Jim Thorpe Award as the nation's best cornerback, Jackson is a stud athlete who reached the qualifiers for the Rio Summer Games as a long jumper. In addition to his work as a defender, Jackson contributed four touchdowns as a returner during his college career and six as an occasional runner and receiver on offense. His size (5-foot-11, 185 pounds) and consistency in coverage are big question marks, but he has too much athletic ability to be anything worse than a Day 2 pick in April.

Texans DC Romeo Crennel said he has no intention to retire.

The question is important because Crennel just finished the final year of his contract in Houston. One of the best coordinators in the game, re-signing Crennel should be one of the Texans' first priorities this offseason, and it sounds like coach Bill O'Brien knows it. "I can tell you Romeo is a great coach and just means a lot to me personally," O'Brien said. "We would love to have Romeo back here." The two sides should work something out.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports "it wouldn't be a surprise" if coach Bill O'Brien decides to take over the offensive coordinator position.

Houston is on the hunt for a new OC after "mutually parting ways" with George Godsey on Monday. O'Brien took over play-calling duties from Godsey early in the season before sharing those responsibilities down the stretch, so it would not be a big leap for him to take over as the primary play-caller in 2017. The Texans will almost certainly give someone the "OC" title, but O'Brien should run the show moving forward.

ESPN's Eric Williams said restricted free agent Branden Oliver "has a good shot" to be back with the Chargers next season.

Coming off an Achilles' tear, Oliver likely will not take more than the lowest tender to retain, and that would be a smart investment for the Chargers with Danny Woodhead set to hit free agency. If Woodhead leaves and the Chargers do not add anyone of note in the draft, Oliver could play an important role behind starter Melvin Gordon in 2017.

Lions GM Bob Quinn said he thinks WLB DeAndre Levy "can be the same player he was a couple years ago."

Levy has lost most of the past two seasons to injury, but he played well after returning down the stretch. "It looks to me, he was getting healthier and healthier as the weeks went on when he came back," Quinn said. "That’s what we envision." A serious injury risk and set to count $8.39 million against the cap, Levy is theoretically a potential cap cut, but Detroit would not save much by releasing him and has very little talent at linebacker. Perhaps the two sides work out a restructured deal, but Levy should be back for his age-30 season.
