Latest Headlines

Per CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Jets head coach Rex Ryan is "leaning to" starting Greg McElroy at quarterback over Mark Sanchez in Week 14 at Jacksonville.

One source called it 65-35 that McElroy would be under center against the Jaguars, and Gang Green's coaching staff liked the "improved pace and verve" of the offense in the roughly 20 minutes of game time with McElroy in. Ryan is set to meet with GM Mike Tannenbaum on Monday night to discuss the matter. McElroy is certainly not the long-term answer in New York, but he gave the team a definite boost. Tim Tebow is not considered a candidate for the job. Sanchez is due $8.25 million in guarantees in 2013, so he's likely not going anywhere. We'll have plenty of updates on the situation throughout the week. McElroy would not be a fantasy option.

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss believes free agent Matt Forte "could be a perfect fit" with the Patriots.

The price would have to be right -- the Pats aren't the sort of team to pay top dollar for a 30-year-old running back -- but on paper there isn't a better fit across the league than Forte in Foxboro. Reiss previously suggested the Patriots will "explore the possibility" of signing Forte. LeGarrette Blount is a free agent, while space back Dion Lewis is rehabbing a torn ACL.

Giants MLB Jon Beason announced his retirement from the NFL after nine seasons.

Word surfaced Wednesday morning that the Giants were releasing the 31-year-old. Instead of ending his career as a released player, Beason is opting for retirement. Beason was the 25th overall pick of the 2005 draft by the Panthers and spent the first six-and-a-half seasons of his career in Carolina before being traded to the Giants midway through the 2013 campaign. He appeared in all 48 games from 2005-2007 before injuries tore his career apart. Beason has battled numerous knee and foot issues and needed another knee surgery this offseason. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection and one-time first-team All-Pro.

Browns OLB Armonty Bryant has been indicted on two counts of felony drug possession stemming from his December 25 arrest in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

Former Browns DB De'Ante Saunders has been indicted for improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle. The two are scheduled to be arraigned in court on February 24. Highway patrol troopers found guns, ammo, and prescription drugs Adderall and OxyCodone in the car early Christmas morning. Saunders was released from the practice squad, and Bryant was benched for the final two games of the season after registering 5.5 sacks on the year.

ABC Philadelphia reports investigators are recommending the District Attorney's office file criminal charges against LeSean McCoy for his alleged assault.

Arrest warrants for McCoy and and three other alleged assailants are expected to be served Wednesday or Thursday. McCoy is being accused of assaulting two off-duty police officers at a Philadelphia nightclub last Saturday night/Sunday morning. This has a long way to go, but it's possible McCoy serves time on the Commissioner/Exempt List. He could eventually become a candidate for in-season suspension, depending on what the investigation shows.

Giants released LT Will Beatty.

The Giants are starting to purge the roster of overpaid veterans. Beatty joins RG Geoff Schwartz and MLB Jon Beason on the street, as all three were cut Wednesday morning. Beatty missed the entire 2015 season after suffering a torn pectoral last May. He also underwent rotator cuff surgery toward the end of the year. Beatty will turn 31 next month. The Giants save $4.175 million with the move and will surge forward with Ereck Flowers on Eli Manning's blind side.

Giants released RG Geoff Schwartz.

The G-Men inked Schwartz to a four-year, $16.8 million pact ahead of the 2014 season. He made just 13-of-32 starts due to several injuries, including a stint on I.R.-designated for return in 2014 with a toe injury. He ended this past season on I.R. after suffering a broken ankle in Week 12. Schwartz later admitted he was also dealing with nerve damage in his foot/ankle before the injury. When on the field, Schwartz is a tough run blocker. Set to turn 30 in July, Schwartz should land back on his feet as long as he can prove that he's healthy. Releasing Schwartz saves the Giants $2.99 million against the cap.

The Indianpolis Star's Zak Keefer considers it "likely" the Colts release Andre Johnson.

The Colts were lauded for their signing of Johnson last offseason following his release from the division-rival Texans, but apparently Houston knew something most of us didn't; Johnson was done or close to it. Now going on age 35 and coming off a horrific 41-503-4 line, Johnson may be one-and-done in Indy. The Colts can save $5 million against the cap by releasing Johnson. They can move forward with T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett.

Patriots waived RB Montee Ball.

Ball wasn't believed to be on the roster, but signed a reserve/future contract on Feb. 1. He was arrested on domestic violence charges last Thursday. Largely out of the league last season, the 2013 second-rounder was reportedly overweight on the Patriots' practice squad. It appears Ball's career could already be over. He turns 26 in December.
Feb 9 - 5:31 PM

Raiders released S Nate Allen.

Allen signed a "four-year, $23 million" contract last March, but ended up appearing in only five games for the Silver and Black, making three starts. He missed 11 contests with a knee issue. The move creates $5 million in cap space, and leaves behind no dead money. His $4.9 million salary was set to become guaranteed on Wednesday, forcing the move. Going on 29, Allen hasn't been effective in quite some time.
Feb 9 - 5:07 PM

Titans released FS Michael Griffin.

The move is not surprising. A first-round pick by the Titans in 2007, Griffin is a two-time Pro Bowler and led the league in interceptions in 2008, but his play has been declining for several seasons. Griffin has been one of the NFL's most overpaid defensive backs for nearly a half-decade. The 31-year-old will struggle to get a long-term deal on the open market. The Titans saved $6.5 million against the cap by releasing Griffin.

NJ Advance Media's Eliot Shorr-Parks reports Eagles DL Fletcher Cox's imminent contract extension could include over $50 million in guaranteed money.

One of Shorr-Parks' sources said "the smart bet is to take the over" on $50 million. Cox has been a dominant 3-4 defensive end the last two seasons, and the Eagles are obviously confident he can continue to excel as an end-tackle hybrid in new DC Jim Schwartz's 4-3 scheme. Recently re-signed DE Vinny Curry and Cox have the potential to be a dominant force for the next several seasons.
