FOX Sports' Jay Glazer reports teams are calling to gauge interest in a Steve Smith trade, but the Panthers have turned down all inquiries so far.

Interesting. Smith expressed frustration with the organization's aimlessness after last week's loss. On pace for 1,350 yards, the 33-year-old still has difference-making ability as a true No. 1 receiver and is highly respected around the league. Carolina has already paid Smith's $10 million signing bonus, however, and the veteran is owed just a prorated $1 million in salary this year and $3.75 million in 2013. The Panthers have no one in the pipeline ready to take his place as Cam Newton's go-to receiver and double-team drawer. Multiple sources inside the Panthers organization tell Profootballtalk's Darin Gantt that a major trade for Smith or DeAngelo Williams is unlikely because it has to be approved by owner Jerry Richardson with Brandon Beane as interim general manager.

Odell Beckham (ankle) doesn't expect to play in any preseason games.

This looks to be injury related, but Beckham is a holdout threat in the final year of his contract. The Giants will likely want to get Beckham preseason reps in their new offense if he's healthy, so this can change between now and training camp. Beckham will make $8.4 million if he plays 2018 under his fifth-year option.

The Texans could release Lamar Miller.

Miller had a career worst 3.7 YPC last season after fading down the stretch in 2016. Owed $14 million over the next two years, he’s not a lock to be back. D’Onta Foreman was pushing Miller for touches before landing on IR and gives the Texans an in-house replacement if they move on. Even if Miller returns, it’s possible he’ll be shifted into more of a pass game role. The Texans can save $5.75 million from making Miller a post June cut.

Blake Bortles (wrist) expects to be fully healthy for OTAs.

Bortles had wrist surgery last month, but he’s already resumed throwing. He should have close to a normal offseason and be ready for OTAs in April. The Jaguars created $9 million in cap space from giving Bortles a three-year extension. He’ll continue to be on the spot in 2018.

NBC Washington’s Rich Tandler expects Samaje Perine to open 2018 as the Redskins’ starter.

Perine failed to impress as a rookie, averaging 3.4 YPC with just two touchdowns in eight starts. An injured offensive line was part of the problem, and the Redskins history of not investing at running back makes Perine the favorite for early-down work. Perine’s limited pass game role and the presence of Rob Kelley are concerns to his outlook, but there’s some scoring potential if he returns as Washington’s red-zone back.

Jaguars signed QB Blake Bortles to a new three-year, $54 million contract that includes $26.5 million guaranteed.

This comes after reports the Jaguars were exploring options to replace Bortles. The extension locks Bortles up through 2020, but Jacksonville will likely be able to escape the contract with relative ease as soon as 2019. Bortles' new deal is on the team-friendly side, placing him behind Ryan Tannehill in annual average. The Jaguars have a rising receiver tandem in Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole, and are expected to franchise impending free agent Allen Robinson, so Bortles should have an improved supporting cast going into 2018. The extension takes the Jags out of the hunt for Kirk Cousins, although they may still consider early-round quarterbacks in the draft.

ESPN's Michael Rothstein "doesn't see" the Lions letting DE Ezekiel Ansah leave as an impending free agent.

Ansah ended the season on a high note with three sacks of Brett Hundley in the Week 17 finale, finishing the year tied for eighth in the league with 12 sacks. Nine of those dozen sacks came across three games, with Ansah disappearing for long stretches. The Lions, however, have nothing in terms of pass rushers behind Ansah, and the free-agent market is completely barren at the position. It makes sense for Detroit to franchise-tag Ansah for roughly $17 million.

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the Bills "were trying to get involved last year" in a trade for Martavis Bryant.

We assume this happened around the trade deadline when Bryant voiced his desire to leave Pittsburgh when he lost his starting job to JuJu Smith-Schuster. Fowler believes teams came to the Steelers offering a fourth-rounder, but it wasn't enough in Pittsburgh's eyes. Fowler, however, does think a second- or high third-rounder could get the deal done this offseason. Bryant's contract expires after 2018, and he isn't expected to accept a long-term deal with the Steelers due to his desire to be a No. 1 receiver. That obviously isn't happening with the Steelers.

ProFootballTalk reports the Jaguars are "exploring their quarterback options" in free agency.

The Jaguars have Blake Bortles under control through 2019, but his fifth-year option is only guaranteed for injury. Assuming he can pass a physical coming off wrist surgery, Jacksonville can shed his entire $19 million salary to make a run at a quarterback. The Jaguars have been linked to Kirk Cousins and may view the other top free agents as upgrades on Bortles. Things should heat up on Jacksonville's quarterback situation after next week's Combine.

Former Jets and Patriots LB David Harris announced his retirement from the NFL after 11 seasons.

Harris spent his first 10 seasons with the Jets before finishing his career with the Patriots in 2017. A second-round pick out of Michigan in 2007, Harris was one of the league's better linebackers during his heyday, earning an All-Pro selection in 2009. Harris played sparingly in his final year, logging just 181 snaps over 10 games for New England. He recorded 1,110 tackles, 37 sacks, six interceptions and four fumble recoveries over 164 NFL appearances. He's likely ticketed for the Jets' Ring of Honor.

Former Dolphins and 49ers OL Jonathan Martin has been taken into police custody after posting a disturbing image on Instagram of a shotgun and ammunition, threatening "suicide" and/or "revenge".

Martin was the famous victim of "Bullygate" while with the Dolphins back in 2013. In the photo he posted on Friday, Martin wrote, "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge." In the photo, there was a shotgun and several rounds of shells lying on a bed, and Martin tagged former Dolphins teammates OG Richie Incognito and C Mike Pouncey. Martin also tagged two others, presumably from his old high school, while also tagging the #MiamiDolphins and #HarvardWestlake, his high school. Harvard Westlake subsequently shut down its campus after seeing the image. Martin was then taken into custody shortly after. The 28-year-old hasn't played in the NFL since 2014 and clearly has some mental issues. Thankfully, it didn't turn ugly.

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, it would be a "stunner" if the Dolphins did not trade franchise player Jarvis Landry in the next few weeks.

Per Beasley, the Dolphins remain "open" to signing Landry to a long-term deal but a trade remains the "likeliest outcome." The Ravens should be in the mix for Landry after attempting to trade for him last year. Beasley also mentioned the Browns, who own six of top 65 picks in the upcoming draft, and the 49ers as possible suitors. If the Dolphins can't trade Landry in the coming weeks, it would severely limit their options in free agency.
