The Packers declined to update the status of WR Jordy Nelson (hamstring, ankle) following Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

According to teammates, Nelson had no problems at all with the hamstring injury that kept him out of Week 8. Instead, it was an ankle injury he sustained in the first quarter that kept him sidelined. The good news is that Nelson never left the bench area and did try to put a cleat on to test the ankle at one point. It sounds like a standard sprain as the Packers head into their bye. We should know more Monday.

According to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, the market for free agent Kenny Stills is "already in the $12 million-a-year" range.

It sounds absurd. Only six receivers around the entire league make $12 million-plus annually. With the salary cap only continuing to rise by the year, lower-tiered players are going to start making more. Stills had a career year in 2016 and is still really young, as he doesn't turn 25 until April. He's also more than just a deep threat. The Eagles are already said to be knocking down Stills' door preparing to make a run at him when free agency opens March 9. Salguero doesn't expect the Dolphins to come close to Stills' asking price.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports there is "mutual interest" between the Cowboys and free agent Josh McCown.

According to Werder, the Cowboys first need to resolve the Tony Romo situation before making a move on McCown. McCown, 38 in July, was released by the Browns earlier this month and is eligible to sign with a new team right away. He said he has spoken with a handful of teams and wants to go somewhere he can win and mentor a young passer. Dallas checks all the boxes.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bears will not use the franchise tag on free agent Alshon Jeffery.

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson confirms RapSheet's report and adds that the two sides haven't talked about an extension in weeks, putting Jeffery's chances at re-signing with the Bears at "slim." Tagging Jeffery would cost the Bears around $17.5 million. It would be a lot of dough to commit to Jeffery, who hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2014 and was suspended four games for PEDs last year. Jeffery should land a monster deal on the open market as the top wideout available. The Eagles are fully expected to make a run at him.

Panthers re-signed DE Mario Addison to a three-year, $22.5 million contract.

He got $11.5 million guaranteed. Addison isn't a household name, but he is a big keep for Carolina. The 29-year-old rotational edge rusher led the Panthers in sacks (9.5) last season and has at least six quarterback takedowns in three straight years. Panthers GM Dave Gettleman's two biggest offseason priorities were retaining Addison and free agent DT Kawann Short. Short will almost certainly be franchise tagged by Wednesday's deadline.

According to 9News Denver's Mike Klis, the Broncos are expected to "at least discuss" pursuing Tony Romo if the Cowboys release him.

GM John Elway continues to insist the Broncos are satisfied with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, but nobody's buying it. Romo has listed Denver as one of his preferred landing spots and he'd be a near-perfect fit as a one or two-year bridge to Lynch, who profiles as the Broncos' quarterback of the future. Notably, Klis fails to mention if the Broncos would consider trading for Romo.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Latavius Murray is expected to test the open market.

Per Anderson, "the door will remain open" for a return to Oakland, but the Raiders will let the market set Latavius' price. Murray lost work to rookies DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard last year, and the Raiders have spent the last two offseasons trying to replace him. If Murray leaves, Oakland will likely add a power back in the draft. Oklahoma's Samaje Perine would fit.

Impending free agent S Matt Elam was arrested on drug charges Sunday in Miami.

Elam was pulled over for driving recklessly. When police searched his vehicle, they discovered 126 grams of marijuana and three grams of oxycodone. He was booked at 3:45 a.m. on charges of possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis, possession of cannabis with the intent to sell or deliver, and possession of a controlled substance. Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun believes the charges are serious enough to threaten Elam's career.

According to the Florida Times Union, Julius Thomas' poor blocking was one reason the Jaguars decided to move on.

One source called Thomas' blocking "non-existent" and said his presence was a "giveaway" to the defense that the Jaguars were passing or running to the other side of the field. Signed by the Jags to a five-year, $46 million contract, Thomas only played about 25-32 snaps a game while often battling injuries. After coaching him in Denver, Dolphins HC Adam Gase should have a better feel for Thomas' strengths and weaknesses than Gus Bradley's staff did.

Jets released C Nick Mangold.

It's another cap-saving move from GM Mike Maccagnan. There were rumblings Mangold could take a pay cut, but his release was expected with Gang Green now committed to a bottoming-out approach. The Jets have cleared $26.6 million with Mangold, Ryan Clady, RT Breno Giacomini, and K Nick Folk gone. There should be a strong market for Mangold despite coming off injury at age 33. Wesley Johnson is Mangold's in-house replacement.

ESPN's John Keim reports it is "likely" the Redskins pursue impending free agent DE Calais Campbell.

The match makes sense. Campbell is one of the highest-impact defensive linemen available, while Washington needs playmakers in their front seven. There will be plenty of other teams interested if Campbell hits the market, however, and Keim questions whether the Redskins are willing to get in a bidding war for a 30-year-old. Campbell has also been linked to Denver, and it will not be surprising if he ends up re-signing with Arizona.

ESPN's Rich Cimini would "be surprised" if Jay Cutler ended up with the Jets.

Cutler to the Jets seems to be the rumor du jour, but Cimini has consistently shot those rumors down. Still, the dots are easy to connect with Cutler's former position coach and former teammates in New York, and the Jets are likely looking for a veteran bridge of Cutler's ilk to get them to their future quarterback. The noise is unlikely to die until the Jets add someone else or Cutler signs with a different team.
