ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells doesn't see impending free agent Matt Forte as a fit for Indianapolis.

Frank Gore isn't the Colts' long-term answer at running back but neither is Forte, who turned 30 in December. The idea of Gore and Forte forming a one-two punch, though appealing to the Colts, probably wouldn't interest Forte. Instead of pursuing a running back, the Colts would be wise to beef up their offensive line to create more running room for Gore.

Eagles DC Jim Schwartz said DE Connor Barwin "fits real well" in his 4-3 scheme.

Darwin played outside linebacker last season but he'll shift to defensive end in 2016. Schwartz thinks the transition will be easy for Darwin, who played defensive end early in his career with Houston. "I think most of the plays that he made were rushing the passer," said Schwartz. "I think that size-wise, effort-wise, skill set-wise, he fits well there."

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner does not expect the Rams to use the franchise tag this offseason.

Starting corners Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson are both headed for free agency but neither is a serious candidate for the franchise tag. The Rams would like to retain both players and it's possible they could use the transition tag to keep one of them from hitting the market. If it comes down to that, Wagoner believes the Rams are more likely to tag Jenkins than Johnson.

Aaron Rodgers said his surgically repaired knee feels great.

Rodgers had his left knee scoped last month, but was back on the golf course this week for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. "It was just good to be out there walking normally," he said. "It’s nice to not have any clunking around or anything, so it was good." It looks like Rodgers' recovery is going smooth.

After doing his initial tape review of college wideout prospects, NFL.com's Matt Harmon came away believing Oklahoma's Sterling Shepard is "bar none" the best route runner in this year's receiver class.

Harmon is perhaps the premier wide receiver evaluator in media today. Shepard was an ultra-productive collegiate, tallying 233 career receptions and averaging 14.9 yards per catch. Harmon says Shepard has earned the title of "my favorite" wideout in the 2016 class, "showing great ability to execute even the most in-depth and nuanced aspects of route assignments like an NFL veteran." Harmon noted Shepard was especially successful versus man coverage. Only 5-foot-10, 193, Shepard figures to be a bit of a polarizing prospect due to his shortage of size. He's drawn comparisons ranging from Tyler Lockett to Antonio Brown.

The Charlotte Observer expects the Panthers to sign DT Kawann Short to a long-term contract this offseason.

He's entering the last year of his rookie contract and is due for a raise after earning PFF's fourth-highest defensive tackle grade out of 70 qualifiers in 2015. Carolina will also have to make a decision on Star Lotulelei, whose fifth-year option must be exercised by May. Short was among the best pass-rushing defensive tackles in football this past season. Lotulelei struggled in that area but was better against the run.

Jonathan Jones of the Charlotte Observer expects the Panthers to cut RE Jared Allen if he decides not to retire.

Doing so would save Carolina $8.5 million against the cap. That's money the Panthers can use to offer Josh Norman an extension. Cutting Allen would also increase Carolina's chances of retaining Charles Johnson, who is scheduled to earn $10.75 million in 2016. Allen's play improved steadily as the season went on but it's clear he isn't the same player he once was. The veteran turns 34 in April.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe expects impending free agent Alshon Jeffery's next deal to be in the "same neighborhood" of Dez Bryant's recent five-year, $70 million contract.

Jeffery is the top option in a thin free agent class of wide receivers. He had a hard time staying on the field last year but was excellent when healthy, averaging a robust 89.7 yards per game. Bryant earned $45 million guaranteed last offseason and the expectation is that Jeffery will command something similar. There's a strong possibility the Bears will place the franchise tag on Jeffery to buy themselves time as the two sides work on a long-term agreement.
