49ers LB Clark Haggans was forced from San Francisco's Week 15 game against the Patriots with a shoulder injury and will not return.

A 13-year veteran, Haggans has been limited to special teams in San Francisco. He's notched just two tackles in seven games.

Giants used the non-exclusive franchise tag on DE Jason Pierre-Paul.

It is a somewhat surprising decision considering the non-exclusive tag costs the same as the exclusive tag, although the exclusive tag's price could climb over the next couple weeks. The non-exclusive designation means Pierre-Paul will be free to negotiate with other teams, but the Giants will be able to match if he signs an offer sheet. If they decline to match, they will be entitled to two first-round picks. That hefty cost means the Giants likely have nothing to worry about, but the decision is still puzzling.

Speaking on Good Morning Football, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo said the Titans will "make a push to bring in some receiver help."

He added Tennessee will be "very active this offseason" and are "prepared to spend." The comments came up in a discussion about Alshon Jeffery, who is certain to land a monster deal as the best receiver available in free agency. If the Titans balk at Jeffery's asking price, they could turn to the draft to find a true No. 1 receiver. Clemson's Mike Williams, Western Michigan's Corey Davis, and Washington's John Ross are all first-round prospects.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the Chiefs and impending free agent SS Eric Berry are "very close" on a six-year deal worth $13 million per season.

The Chiefs are making a "strong push" to lock up Berry before Wednesday's franchise tag deadline, and it looks like they are going to get the deal done. The reported annual figure will make Berry the highest-paid safety in the league. Getting Berry's deal done before the deadline will allow the Chiefs to tag NT Dontari Poe if they so choose.

Vikings announced they will not pick up Adrian Peterson's 2017 option, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Minnesota was never going to pick up Peterson's $18 million option, but GM Rick Spielman has not closed the door on the running back returning. "Adrian is an important part of the Minnesota Vikings organization," Spielman said. "We will continue to have conversations with his representatives and leave our future options open while determining what is best for both parties." Peterson will certainly want to test his value on the open market, but he might be disappointed by what he finds, opening the door for the Vikings to re-sign him on a more cost-friendly deal. Peterson has expressed interest in playing for the Texans, Bucs, and Giants while also saying the "door is still open" for a return to Minnesota. The Raiders are another interesting possibility.

The Dallas Morning News' Naheed Rajwani reports the misdemeanor assault charge against Johnny Manziel is "on track to be dismissed under conditions."

Manziel had a court hearing in Dallas on Tuesday in which the presiding judge lectured him on his responsibilities moving forward. "I want to see from you that you are taking this situation seriously," Judge Robert Canas said. "I would hate for you to miss on on the opportunity that you've got." For his part, Manziel said "everything has been going extremely smoothly" and his "life is trending upwards." Self-reportedly sober, Manziel hopes to make another run at an NFL career. Clearing up his legal troubles is a step in the correct direction, but it remains unlikely he will get another shot. A CFL job might be his best option.

The Browns placed a second-round tender on restricted free agent Isaiah Crowell.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the two sides are working on a long-term deal. The $2.81 million tender will give the Browns more time to hash out details. Crowell started 2016 hot with 447 total yards and three touchdowns in the first four games. Hampered by an injury-marred offensive line, he slowed down considerably the rest of the way, but he still set career highs in carries (198), receptions (40), and total yards (1,271). The Browns have been linked with running backs this offseason, but the long-term negotiations suggest Crowell will remain atop the depth chart in 2017.

Speaking on PFT Live, agent Drew Rosenhaus said he is "flabbergasted" by rumors the Bills plan to trade or release LeSean McCoy.

McCoy's big cap number ($8.875 million) has sparked speculation the new coaching staff might look for a cheaper option, and Shady, perhaps unintentionally, put fuel to the fire by tweeting, "Buffalo was so special ... thanks for everything," on Sunday. McCoy appears to have been tweeting about an appearance at an autograph signing, however, and Rosenhaus said he believes McCoy will play for the Bills for "many years to come." It makes little sense for a team with few offensive weapons and who might be without a quarterback in the near future to move on from a player of McCoy's caliber.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are unlikely to re-sign impending free agent Kenny Stills.

Salguero reports the Dolphins will "make a strong pitch" at the Combine this week, but Stills is "more likely to leave via free agency than stay in Miami." Considering Salguero has already reported the receiver is likely to land around $12 million a year on the open market, it is not surprising the Dolphins are struggling to match that price. Only 24, Stills likely will be one of the hottest names when the legal tampering period opens next week.

ESPN's Tim McManus reports "several free-agent wide receivers" are "drawn to the idea" of playing with Carson Wentz.

It is great news for the Eagles, who need a No. 1 receiver in the worst way. Still, no receiver is going to take significantly less money just to play with an ascending quarterback, and Philadelphia might not have the financial muscle to be serious contenders for someone like Alshon Jeffery. Kenny Stills might be more in their range, but there are reports he will fetch around $12 million per year. If the Eagles really want to upgrade their receiver position via free agency, they will have to spend top dollar.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reports using the franchise tag on impending free agent LB Dont'a Hightower is not "a serious consideration" for the Patriots.

The two sides do not seem particularly close in contract negotiations, and the Patriots likely do not want to risk paying Hightower upwards of $15 million on a one-year tender if they cannot reach a long-term agreement. Reiss believes New England could handle the situation similarly to the way they handled negotiations with S Devin McCourty, who was allowed to test his value on the market before ultimately re-signing. If that is the path they choose to take, it is possible if not likely they end up losing Hightower.

Speaking on Adam Schefter's "Know Them From Adam" podcast, impending free agent Eddie Lacy said the Packers have been "very vocal" about re-signing him.

It makes sense. Lacy could use a place where he feels comfortable to rehab his value after weight issues and injuries derailed his career, and the Packers could use cheap backfield help to pair with Ty Montgomery and perhaps a rookie. A one-year deal might be the best option for both sides. As for the ankle injury which ended his 2016, Lacy said he should be able to "do everything" by OTAs.
