Jets declared TE Dustin Keller (hamstring) and WR Stephen Hill (hamstring) active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

It's Keller's first game since Week 1 and Hill's first since Week 3. Both have suffered multiple setbacks during their rehab, making them extremely risky starts in the Jets' dysfunctional offense. Hill projects to rotate with Chaz Schilens. Meanwhile, C Nick Mangold (ankle) is ready to go as well. The Jets' inactives: QB Greg McElroy, WR Clyde Gates, RB Jonathan Grimes, S Eric Smith, FB John Conner, NT Sione Po'uha and NT Kenrick Ellis

49ers signed DT Earl Mitchell to a four-year, $16 million contract.

He'll get $5.5 million in year one. Mitchell drew a surprising amount of interest for a nearing-30 defensive tackle who hasn't recorded a sack in two years, and hasn't earned a positive run-defense grade from Pro Football Focus in a half decade. A 6-foot-2, 296-pound undersized nose tackle, Mitchell's on-field play has been nondescript at best. He has also missed 11 games the past two seasons due to injury. The 49ers need to keep searching for good football players. They have very few of them right now.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci passes along "a lot of buzz" that the 49ers could draft Alabama ILB Reuben Foster with the No. 2 overall pick.

Carucci is one of the NFL's most well-connected beat writers, having worked for multiple teams and as a reporter for NFL.com. Even if he gets past San Francisco at No. 2, Carucci fully expects Foster to be drafted in the single digits. After watching Foster's college tape, ESPN's Louis Riddick described him as "everything I want in a run-and-hit linebacker," and "vicious" on the field. Foster, however, is presently recovering from rotator cuff surgery.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci considers DT Kyle Williams' roster spot "extremely vulnerable."

Especially if the Bills keep Tyrod Taylor, they will have to make some cap-saving moves. Turning 34 in June, Williams carries an $8.3 million cap number and would save the Bills $6.8 million if released. Williams would make a lot of sense in Philadelphia as a replacement for impending free agent NT Bennie Logan. Williams had a monster year under Eagles DC Jim Schwartz with Buffalo in 2014, dominating as both an interior pass rusher and run defender.

Coach Mike Mularkey said the Titans' starting running back job will not be opened to competition for 2017.

"DeMarco Murray is the guy," Mularkey stated. "He has shown he is the guy and he will continue to be that guy." Derrick Henry averaged 4.45 yards per carry, scored five touchdowns, and caught 13-of-15 targets in a promising rookie year, but he will open 2017 as a complementary, game-plan-specific back. "Derrick, as you saw, some games he was more involved than others," Mularkey explained. "And a lot is based on how we are going to attack the opponent."

Rob Gronkowski (back) said he will "for sure" be ready to play Week 1.

"Uh, yes," Gronkowski said when asked if he'll be ready to go for the season opener. "No doubt." Gronkowski is coming off his third known back surgery after he required 2009 and 2013 operations to repair herniated disks. As for his playing future, Gronk said he's not yet even thinking about retirement. Still just 28 (in May), Gronkowski's body has been through a lot in such a short period of time, but he keeps coming back better than ever. He averaged a monstrous 21.6 yards per catch on 25 grabs in 2016. Gronkowski is still the TE1 in fantasy.

Chiefs signed RB C.J. Spiller.

Spiller has name recognition, but he hasn't been a factor on the field for years. He was a massive free-agent flop in New Orleans in 2015 and bounced around between the Saints, Jets, and Seahawks last season before eventually being released in December. Spiller will turn 30 before the season. He'll try to carve out a pass-catching role in K.C., but we won't hold our breath.

SNY reports the Giants are "planning to be aggressive" with free agent Jason Pierre-Paul.

The G-Men have made it clear through the media that keeping Pierre-Paul is a priority. The franchise tag makes the most sense for the team, but reporter Ralph Vacchiano makes it sound as if they aren't ruling out a long-term deal. JPP has said he wants to avoid a one-year contract. The reasons are obvious for a 28-year-old pass rusher who suffered a career-threatening injury in 2015. Pierre-Paul is Rotoworld's No. 2 free agent edge rusher.

Bucs released CB Alterraun Verner.

The no-brainer move creates $6.5 million in cap space, and leaves behind no dead money. Signed to a four-year, $25.5 million contract in March 2014, Verner was a comprehensive bust in Tampa, losing his starting job in 2015. Despite good health, he made just nine combined starts over the past two years, playing 838 replacement-level snaps. The ex-Titan turned 28 in January. He'll search for fourth corner work.
Feb 23 - 4:00 PM

Jets released OT Breno Giacomini.

The move creates $4.5 million in cap space. Coupled with Nick Folk's release, Giacomini's departure saves the Jets a total of $7.5 million. Going on 32, Giacomini is recovering from back surgery. He's been a liability for years now. He won't be signed as a locked-in starter in free agency. Perhaps his ex-team Seattle will be interested as they pick up the pieces along their offensive line.

Jets released K Nick Folk.

The move creates $3 million in cap space. Now 32, Folk had been the Jets' kicker since 2010. Folk converted 27-of-31 field goals last season, though he did shank two extra points. Folk was effective enough to keep his job, but the rebuilding Jets would rather save money. Folk will likely be kicking somewhere in 2017.

Vikings GM Rick Spielman was noncommittal when speaking about Adrian Peterson on Thursday.

Spielman said the team is still mulling its options, but that Peterson will "always be a Viking." Spielman's words confirm there's a strong chance the Vikings move on from one of the best players in franchise history. Both sides seem ready for a divorce.
