Aaron Hernandez (ankle) is among 14 players the Patriots have listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Bills.

Even coming off a bye week, the Patriots are trying to keep their opponent guessing. Hernandez was limited in practice each day this week, and the Pats' beat reporters have indicated no concern about his availability against Buffalo. Ultimately, we'd be surprised if Hernandez missed the game. Pencil him into your lineup and check back on Sunday morning. Pats-Bills has a 1:00PM ET start.

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

Addison isn't a household name, but he is a big keep for Carolina. The 29-year-old edge rusher led the Panthers in sacks (9.5) last season and has at least six quarterback takedowns in three straight years. GM Dave Gettleman's two biggest offseason priorities were retaining Addison and free agent DT Kawann Short. Short will likely 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.

Ravens assistant GM Eric DeCosta said the Ravens are looking to add a possession receiver.

"I think we're looking for a guy that can catch the ball, move the chains and get critical first downs when needed," DeCosta said. Brandon Marshall would seem to fit that description, and The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec has already written the Ravens "would at least inquire" if the Jets release him. Baltimore also has a long history of signing veteran receivers at the tail end of their careers, and Marshall would not count towards the compensatory pick formula if he is released. It all makes too much sense to actually happen.

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.
