Percy Harvin (ankle) participated in Wednesday's practice.

He was officially "limited." Per ESPN 1500's Tom Pelissero, Harvin "looked himself going straightline," but was limping coming out of his breaks. Pelissero's colleague Judd Zulgad reported Harvin did "not appear comfortable." It would be huge if Harvin could bounce-back to practice again on Thursday, but for now, he's looking like a game-time decision at best.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Saints have made MLB Curtis Lofton available for trade.

The Saints have work to do between now and Tuesday to get themselves under the cap. New Orleans is still about $22 million over the threshold and it seems reluctant to make tough decisions to move on from overpaid veterans. Lofton is the quarterback of the defense and has yet to miss a game in seven seasons. Scheduled to count $9.25 million against the cap, the Saints can clear just $4.25 million by moving Lofton. He's amassed over 100 tackles in three straight seasons with the Saints, forcing four fumbles. PFF docked Lofton for 22 missed tackles in 2014 while giving him poor marks against the run and in coverage.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports Peyton Manning has agreed to take a $4 million pay cut, reducing his salary from $19 million to $15 million.

The move creates an additional $4 million in cap space for a Broncos team looking to sign franchise player Demaryius Thomas to a long-term contract. The Broncos are also in the market for up to three new offensive linemen, in addition to possibly re-signing free agent DT Terrance Knighton. Manning's $15 million base salary makes him the sixth-highest paid quarterback just behind Jay Cutler.

Texans released C Chris Myers.

Myers has been the Texans' center the past seven seasons and never missed a start. Due $6 million in the final year of his contract and scheduled to count $8 million against the cap, it was a logical move to move on from the 33-year-old. Myers was a top-three run-blocking center at Pro Football Focus this past season, but finished 33rd out of 41 as a pass blocker. Myers may resurface in Denver with old pal Gary Kubiak. At 286 pounds, he's built for a zone-blocking scheme.

Bills acquired QB Matt Cassel and a 2015 sixth-round pick from the Vikings in exchange for a 2015 fifth-round pick and 2016 seventh-round pick.

After swinging a blockbuster deal for LeSean McCoy on Tuesday, GM Doug Whaley is back at it again Wednesday. After losing out to the Browns for Josh McCown, the Bills turned their attention to the trade market. It's basically a salary dump by the Vikings, who save $4.75 million against the cap and further clear the quarterback room for Teddy Bridgewater. Cassel, 33 in May, appeared in 12 games (nine starts) for Minnesota the past two seasons, composing a 4-5 record with a 14:13 TD:INT ratio and 6.9 YPA average. He's nothing more than a game manager who will compete with E.J. Manuel for the starting job.

Lyons Yellin of WWL-TV in Louisiana has "heard rumblings" the Eagles have interest in free agent Mark Ingram.

Whereas Shady McCoy was an at-times improvisational east-west back, Ingram is a north-south runner whose addition in Philadelphia would constitute a changing of the guard. There were rumblings late in the year that coach Chip Kelly was displeased with McCoy's tendency to freelance in his running game, which also led to Bryce Brown's ouster last offseason. A more assignment-sound runner than McCoy, Ingram's fantasy stock would skyrocket in Philly.

PFT's Mike Florio reports Andre Johnson has asked for his release from the Texans.

Johnson and his agent have no plans to do the Texans any favors and seek a trade. The 34-year-old (in July) will instead wait for his release, head to the open market, and pick his own team. No team was going to trade for Johnson and his $21.5 million in salary over the final two years of his contract anyway. Expect Johnson to target a contender in an attempt to reach the Super Bowl.

A league source told Packer Report's Bill Huber the Raiders are considering offering free agent Randall Cobb "a blockbuster deal."

The same source said Jacksonville is "prepared to make a run" at Cobb. The source claims Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie -- an ex-Packers personnel man -- is willing to offer Cobb $11 million annually, a price Green Bay GM Ted Thompson almost certainly wouldn't match. Cobb would replace James Jones as the Raiders' slot receiver. His fantasy outlook would take a huge blow in Oakland.

A source informed ESPN's Josina Anderson that LeSean McCoy is "frustrated" over being traded to the Bills and is "not going to make it easy, that's for sure."

"Of course he's not happy," added the source. "It'll be interesting to see how this process plays itself out because he's an interesting individual. ... He was like 'why me?'" Some are leaving the door open to McCoy possibly refusing to go to Buffalo, leading to the Bills possibly pulling out of the trade prior to it officially going through when the new league year opens March 10. But in all likelihood, the Bills will hand McCoy a new contract with more guaranteed money through 2015 and 2016 and let coach Rex Ryan work his magic as a coach with the ability to convince his players to "buy in." Ryan's the ultimate players coach.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the Eagles and free agent Jeremy Maclin have been "not as close recently" in contract talks.

Per beat writer Jeff McLane, a deal "was close for some time," but the sides aren't as near to compromising now and Maclin is "getting nibbles." McLane says the Eagles must "up the ante" with Maclin after clearing a ton of cap room via the LeSean McCoy trade. If the Eagles lose Maclin, Jordan Matthews, Riley Cooper, and Josh Huff would be left as their top three receivers.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette reports the Steelers are "hoping" SS Troy Polamalu will retire so they won't have to release him.

Polamalu's play has been in a precipitous decline the past few years, and he isn't worth the $8.25 million cap hit. With two years left on his contract, the Steelers want Polamalu to call it a career as a soon-to-be 34-year-old so that they don't have to go through the awkwardness of cutting him. Either way, Polamalu will never play another snap for Pittsburgh. 2013 fourth-round S Shamarko Thomas may be the heir apparent to Polamalu next to FS Mike Mitchell.

Vikings officials will meet with Adrian Peterson in Houston on Wednesday in an attempt to persuade him to return to the team.

Peterson feels betrayed by Vikings management after COO Kevin Warren sided with the NFL to keep A.P. suspended following last year's child abuse charge. Coach Mike Zimmer will be at Wednesday's meeting, and GM Rick Spielman is "likely" to attend as well. "I think it’s been very clearly stated that we want to have Adrian Peterson back," Spielman reaffirmed on Monday. "He’s a unique talent and he’s under contract with us." Despite his differences with the Vikings' front office, Peterson is said to have a lot of respect for Zimmer.
