Jaguars claimed DE Jason Babin off waivers from the Eagles.

Jacksonville is second in the waiver claim order, so Babin didn't make it far. According to NFL.com, three teams placed claims, including the Bills and Redskins. The Jags are now on the hook for his remaining $1.69 million salary. Babin should immediately goose the league's worst pass rush, and will be auditioning for a roster spot in 2013. Babin is signed through 2015, but has no guaranteed money beyond 2012. Even if he's back in Jacksonville next season, it will almost certainly be on a renegotiated deal. The author of 36.5 sacks since 2010, Babin will turn 33 in May.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora continues to report that the Jets have "some interest" in Jay Cutler once he's released by the Bears.

"They believe he can play in the elements that are a reality in the AFC East, and they like his moxie and arm talent," writes La Canfora. "And that was well before the Jets hired Jeremy Bates as their quarterback coach." Bates and Cutler have mutual affinity for each other after working together in Denver and Chicago. The current Jets regime needs to find a way to put wins on the board if they're going to save their jobs. No quarterback currently on the roster or in the draft will be able to do that, so Cutler would make sense as a veteran capable of coming in and making this team at least competitive. La Canfora also mentions the Bills, 49ers, Dolphins, Texans, Jaguars, and Browns as potential landing spots for Cutler.

CSN New England's Tom Curran reports the Patriots are going to need to be "bowled over" and have their "doors blown off" if they're to trade Jimmy Garoppolo.

And Curran expects that to happen. Reports from national media have been all over the place, with some reporting they don't expect Garoppolo to be dealt and others saying he's only worth a second-round pick. Curran intimates he expects the Patriots to be offered a first-round pick and possibly more. Garoppolo's trade stock will never be higher. Expect New England to cash in on it. The Bears and Browns have been tied most to Garoppolo in recent weeks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tyrod Taylor has been medically cleared from groin surgery.

Taylor underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia shortly after the season. A 4-6 week recovery, Taylor's rehab was right on track. He has a $27.5 million option bonus due on March 11, and it remains to be seen if Buffalo will exercise it. Most Bills beat writers expect Buffalo to dump Taylor. Nick Foles and Tony Romo have been loosely linked to Buffalo as replacement options.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Bears have "actively started seeking" a trade partner for Jay Cutler.

The Bears will try their darnedest to get something for Cutler, though there's a good chance they'll end up cutting him. Cutler plateaued and arguably regressed after a promising beginning to his career in Denver, and hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2009. With that said, a quarterback-needy team like the Jets could be desperate enough to take the bait. The Bears are expected to target Jimmy Garoppolo, but they'll face plenty of competition.

Speaking on PFT Live, Newsday's Bob Glauber said the Giants believe Eli Manning has two or three good years left in the NFL.

It's a bold stance after Eli's play took a stark turn for the worse last season. His 6.7 yards per attempt were a near-decade low, while New York's offense finished 25th in yards per game (330.7) and 26th in points (19.4). Eli showed a dead arm on downfield throws. 36-year-old Manning's starting job isn't in danger, but the Giants need to start thinking about life after him.

Panthers released FB Mike Tolbert.

The move frees up $1.725 million in cap space. Tolbert earned three Pro Bowl nods in five seasons with Carolina. Fullbacks are a dying breed in the NFL, but Tolbert should land on his feet. The 31-year-old logged 114 rushing yards on 35 carries last year, adding 10 catches for 72 yards and one touchdown.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is a "better chance" the Bills keep Tyrod Taylor than not.

Rapoport made the comment while talking about potential landing spots for Tony Romo. Bleacher Report's Ty Dunne, who is a former Buffalo reporter, guessed the Bills would move on last week, so this situation seems to be truly up in the air. Buffalo will commit to $30.75 million guaranteed over two years to Taylor if they pick up his option.

Saints coach Sean Payton said he "absolutely" expects Brandin Cooks to return in 2017.

There had been chatter Cooks would be traded after making noise about his role during the season, but it never seemed particularly likely. Along with Michael Thomas and Willie Snead, Cooks gives the Saints' potent offense one of the best receiver groups in the league. New Orleans is expected to pick up his fifth-year option this offseason.

Vikings OC Pat Shurmur said this offseason will be "very critical" for Laquon Treadwell.

The No. 23 overall pick last year, Treadwell managed just one catch as a rookie and was stuck behind an ineffective Charles Johnson on the depth chart all season. In the rookie's defense, he did deal with several injuries, but it was still a disappointing showing. With both Johnson and Cordarrelle Patterson headed to free agency, Treadwell should have a shot at more playing time moving forward, but he will need to earn it during the offseason program.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Bucs are a possible landing spot for impending free agent DeSean Jackson.

Speaking on Adam Schefter's podcast, Jackson said returning to Philadelphia would be a "great story," but he will be looking to get all he can out of this trip to free agency. With a quarterback on the rise and not much else besides Mike Evans in the passing game, the Bucs make a ton of sense as a potential landing spot, especially since Anderson also reports Jackson has "existing rapport" with Jameis Winston. Jackson has also been linked with the Rams.

Former Panthers and Giants OG Geoff Schwartz announced his retirement after nine seasons in the NFL.

Released by the Lions last August, Schwartz wrote he has known he was retired "for months." A quality player, Schwartz's career likely would have gone much differently if he had been able to stay on the field, but he missed all of 2011 with a hip injury and played just 13 games in two seasons with the Giants. Schwartz should have a future as a broadcaster and analyst.
