The Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Matt Vensel expects the Vikings to release at least one of LT Matt Kalil or RT Phil Loadholt.

Kalil was the fourth overall pick in the 2012 draft and is set to count $11.096 million against the cap after the Vikings exercised his fifth-year option last offseason. Minnesota can clear the entire $11.096 million off the salary cap by releasing Kalil. He's started all 64 games since entering the NFL, but Kalil has been horrific in pass protection ever since. He may eventually have to play the right side. Kalil received above-average run-blocking marks from PFF.

The Bucs are expected to retain LG Logan Mankins.

Mankins didn't rule out the possibility of retiring at season's end, but he has $7 million reasons to play out the final year of his contract. Turning 34 in March, Mankins remained one of the top interior offensive linemen in the league last season. Pro Football Focus graded Mankins 12th among 82 qualified guards in run blocking and 16th in pass protection with zero sacks allowed.

Packers re-signed DL Letroy Guion to a three-year, $11.25 million contract.

Guion, 29 in June, was looking for a long-term deal last offseason after he had a productive 2014 as the Packers' nose tackle, but he got in some hot water with the law and had to settle for another one-year pact. Guion's charges were later dropped, and he answered with another strong year. Guion can play all across the Packers' 3-4 front. If free agent NT B.J. Raji is re-signed, Guion will likely stay in a rotational role as a 3-4 end.

The Bucs are fully expected to bring back Vincent Jackson.

A poor free agent wide receiver market can't hurt V-Jax's case to stay in Tampa Bay, where he is owed a $9.78 million base salary, all of which would come off the salary cap books were Jackson released. The Bucs are flush with cap space already, however, and they're very unlikely to find a better option across from Mike Evans this offseason. Jackson turned 33 last month.

The Tampa Bay Times reports free agent Doug Martin is looking to "hit the jackpot" after finishing No. 2 in the NFL in rushing, and will hit the open market.

Bucs GM Jason Licht claims Martin and the team have a "mutual" desire to stay together, but beat writer Rick Stroud reports they "aren't really that close in reaching an agreement." Martin is expected to ask for $8 million per year, or what DeMarco Murray received from the Eagles last offseason. "We'll have to see how it goes," Licht conceded. 27 years old and not much of an asset in the passing game, Martin is a candidate to get overpaid should he hit the market in March.

Justin Tuck will sign a one-day contract to retire as a member of the Giants.

It's only right. Tuck spent nine of his 11 seasons with the Giants, and was instrumental in each of their 2000s Super Bowl titles. Tuck generated only six sacks in 20 games with the Raiders.

The Indianapolis Star expects the Colts to let CB Greg Toler walk in free agency.

A 2013 free agent addition, Toler had a volatile three-year stint in Indy. He missed six games with knee and neck issues last season, and wasn't very effective when on the field. Toler turned 31 last month.

The Indianapolis Star expects the Colts to re-sign free agent Coby Fleener.

Both Fleener and Dwayne Allen are free agents, but reporter Zak Keefer believes Fleener's durability and pass-catching prowess make him a more likely re-sign. Allen was primarily utilized as a blocker in 2015, and has a long injury history. New OC Rob Chudzinski is known for featuring tight ends. Fleener has largely been a disappointment in the pros, but his fantasy stock would trend directly upward were he re-signed and Allen allowed to walk. The Colts should resume playing aggressive, pass-first offense in 2016 with Andrew Luck back healthy.
