Alshon Jeffery's right hand has been placed in a cast, and ESPN Chicago's Mike Wright reports Jeffery could miss "a few weeks."

Tests revealed a fracture, as confirmed by ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson. The good news is Jeffery will not need surgery and has a Week 6 bye to get the hand right. The bad news is there is no set timetable for him to return. If Jeffery misses any game action going forward, the Bears would probably start Devin Hester with Earl Bennett in the slot. Brandon Marshall would continue to be the only start-able Bears wide receiver in fantasy leagues.

The Jaguars met with Browns transition player Alex Mack on Friday.

It's Mack's first known visit since being assigned the Browns' transition tag. The Jags have yet to make a formal offer, but there's "ongoing discussions" between the sides. With Brad Meester retired, Mack would be a massive upgrade on projected starter Mike Brewster. The Browns have the ability to match any contract Mack receives, so Jacksonville would have to get creative to lure him out of Cleveland. The Browns are also flush with salary cap space.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio reports free agent Chris Johnson is "expected to pick his next team by the middle of next week."

A quick signing would not be a surprise. The protracted nature of Johnson's release meant teams had plenty of time to do their research and assess his contract demands. Even so, teams are not exactly lining up at Johnson's front door. The Jets have reportedly not even contacted him yet, and every other link has been tenuous at best. At this point, Johnson may be best served taking a one-year, prove-it deal in order to hit free agency hard next offseason.

Broncos signed head coach John Fox to a three-year contract through 2016.

It's a two-year extension. After a nine-year run in Carolina, Fox became the Broncos' coach three seasons ago. He's led Denver to a 34-14 record, and a Super Bowl 48 berth. Fox's lack of aggressiveness in critical moments has come under scrutiny, but he's one of the NFL's most well-liked coaches, and highly respected by his players. He's also lucky to be surrounded by Peyton Manning, Jack Del Rio, and Adam Gase. The Broncos will enter 2014 with continuity throughout their coaching staff. Hopefully Fox's eagerness to call punts and kneeldowns rather than go for first downs and touchdowns won't cost Denver any future games. 38-year-old Manning's "window" will soon slam shut.

Saints signed CB Champ Bailey to a two-year contract with a max value of $7 million.

We realize it's popular at this point in time to chalk up Bailey as "done," but he had an excellent regular season in 2012 before Torrey Smith ran by him a few times in Denver's playoff loss, and Bailey was injured throughout 2013. We're a little more open minded. Turning 36 in June, Bailey's skill set remains an excellent fit for DC Rob Ryan's press-man scheme, where he'll only have to deal with No. 2 corners opposite running mate Keenan Lewis. It's still likely New Orleans uses an early draft pick at cornerback, quite possibly in the first round.

Patriots released SS Adrian Wilson.

New England's signing of Pat Chung made Wilson expendable. Now 34 years old, Wilson never played a snap for the Patriots in 2013 after signing a three-year, $5 million deal last March. He tore his Achilles' tendon in the preseason finale. Achilles' tears are career threatening even for young players, and this one could easily end Wilson's career. Wilson is a five-time Pro Bowler and one-time first-team All Pro. Though probably not a Hall of Famer, Wilson will eventually be a member of the Arizona Cardinals' Ring of Honor. He hopes to keep playing.

A source tells ESPN's Paul Kuharsky that the Bills and Dolphins were Chris Johnson's "top suitors" in pre-release trade discussions.

Kuharsky reports Buffalo and Miami "were the teams that came closest to making a move," but he "can't envision" Johnson wanting to play for the Bills, and the Dolphins' offensive line woes may ultimately discourage CJ?K from signing there. We still see Buffalo as the longest of shots. ESPN's Adam Schefter has reported the Jets and Falcons have also shown interest in Johnson.

Owen Daniels' one-year contract with Baltimore includes zero guaranteed money, and has a base value of just $1 million.

The max value is $2 million, with the other $1 million available via incentives. It's another savvy signing by Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome. Daniels is 31 and has become increasingly injury prone in recent seasons, but made a Pro Bowl as recently as 2012, and in 2013 was on pace for a 77-807-10 stat line before fracturing his tibial plateau in Week 5. Daniels' addition will allow the Ravens to make heavy use of "12 personnel," creating mismatches alongside Dennis Pitta.

Seahawks signed head coach Pete Carroll to a three-year extension through 2017.

Carroll has posted a 71-57 career record as a head coach, dating back to stints with the Jets and Patriots, and his record the past two seasons in Seattle is 24-8 with a Super Bowl 48 trophy. Carroll's style of play has arguably revolutionized today's NFL, as in a "copy-cat league" many teams have begun playing press coverage on defense while running the ball first on offense. Carroll also plays a major role in personnel decisions, along with GM John Schneider. In Pat Daugherty's head-coaching rankings column, Carroll came in second to only Bill Belichick. Daugherty's article can be accessed at the link below.

Titans released RB Chris Johnson.

The move has been in the works for weeks, if not months. The Titans save $6 million versus the cap and eat a $4 million dead money hit. Johnson isn't the same player as the one that rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009 and earned the moniker CJ2K, but he still has excellent speed and hasn't missed a game since his rookie season. There's no chance he'll find the $8 million salary he was scheduled to earn on the open market, but Johnson is easily the best back to hit free agency this offseason. He won't be a true No. 1 like he was in Tennessee, either. Johnson is merely a complementary piece to a backfield. Look for the Jets and Cowboys to show interest. The Patriots and Rams could also be in the mix.

Bills acquired WR Mike Williams from the Buccaneers for a sixth-round draft pick.

Williams' name has been in the news for all the wrong reasons this offseason, and he clearly was on the outs in Tampa. In Buffalo, Williams reunites with Doug Marrone. Marrone coached Williams at Syracuse in 2009 before Williams quit the team that November. Williams also grew up in Buffalo, so it's a homecoming. In 2010, Williams led all rookie receivers in catches, yards, and touchdowns. He's not an explosive athlete by any means but with 25 career touchdowns and a 6-foot-2, 212-pound frame, Williams has been a reliable red-zone option. Williams, Robert Woods, and Stevie Johnson project as Buffalo's top three wideouts, though Johnson has been rumored to be on the way out.

The Buffalo News reports the Bills could have a new owner as early as October.

According to a "high-ranking Bills source," the sale is on a "much faster track than fans probably expected." Per reporter Tim Graham, October isn't the most-likely completion date for a sale, however. That would be the league meetings in December or next March. The Bills' next owner could break the team's stadium lease as early as 2020.
