Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official website indicates the team is thinking about moving MLB Sean Lee to weak-side linebacker.
Bruce Carter manned the weak side last season but was benched before quickly regaining the job. The Cowboys might be souring on him. If Lee kicks outside, second-year LB DeVonte Holloman could take over in the middle. Holloman played 214 defensive snaps as a rookie and started the final two games at MIKE. Lee's tackle number might take a slight hit, but he'd remain a strong IDP play.
Lance Moore indicated on Twitter that he's been released by the Saints.
"Thank you New Orleans for an amazing nine years," tweeted Moore. "Who Dat Nation, the best on earth!!!" The Saints were said to be shopping Moore but apparently found no takers. Moore will be 31 before Week 1 and isn't worth the $3.6 million he's due. If the Saints indeed are releasing him, they'll clear $2.5 million against the cap. Kenny Stills will have a bigger 2014 role.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports there are "indications" free agent B.J. Raji will decline the Packers' one-year offer.
According to reporters Tom Silverstein and Bob McGinn, the Pack offered Raji the "options of one- and two-year contracts." They confirm the one-year offer was worth roughly $4 million. Coming off an extremely disappointing season, there's no guarantee Raji will do better in free agency.
The Houston Chronicle's John McClain reports the Texans are "seriously considering" each of Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel with the No. 1 pick.
Per McClain, there's a "long way to go in the process." McClain — who is the most plugged-in Texans reporter — has been adamant that the team will take a signal caller at No. 1, though there's been recent chatter they could select South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney. Bortles appears to be the favorite at this exact moment, but there's plenty of time for that to change.
Profootballtalk reports there's still a chance Mark Sanchez remains with the Jets on a "revised deal."
It jibes with what NFL.com and ESPN New York reported last month. For whatever reason, the Jets are taking the decision down to the wire, but it would still be extremely surprising if Sanchez remained with Gang Green in 2014.
Free agent Mike Sims-Walker has been released by the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Sims-Walker's decline has been nothing short of remarkable since he posted a 63/869/7 line for the Jaguars in 2009. MSW is still only 29, but his footballin' days are through.
The Associated Press reports free agent Michael Vick could still end up re-signing with the Eagles.
According to a source, Vick could return if he "doesn't find the right fit elsewhere." Speaking in January, Vick himself said he'd be willing to return if "all else fails," so it's not exactly news. Vick has been linked to essentially every quarterback-needy team. He's likely moving on.
UCF QB Blake Bortles will visit the Texans and Jaguars shortly after his March 19 Pro Day.
It's standard-operating procedure for quarterback-needy teams picking inside the top 10, but notable nonetheless. That being said, there's often very little to be read into which prospects teams do and do not host.
