Bills placed WR Donald Jones (calf) on the season-ending non-football/illness list.

The calf injury has kept Jones out of the lineup in two of the past three games. "It's been bothering him off and on," said coach Chan Gailey. "It shows up and doesn't show up." Jones finishes the season with 41 catches for 443 yards and four touchdowns. He's a restricted free agent in 2013. Jones may have started his last game in Buffalo, as GM Buddy Nix had made it clear that a true No. 1 wide receiver is near the top of his offseason wish list.

Citing league sources, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports the Dolphins are working to finalize a trade sending Branden Albert to the Jaguars in exchange for Julius Thomas.

The Miami Herald reported this late in the week, but the Sun-Sentinel got credit for the story on multiple media outlets today. The Sun-Sentinel hasn't (accurately) broken an NFL story in years. Either way, it's clear the Albert-for-Thomas deal has legs and at this point seems inevitable. Officially, no deal can be consummated until the start of the new league year on March 9.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, Tony Romo is willing to "massage" his contract in order to facilitate a trade.

This flexibility is critical if Dallas is going to get trade compensation. Romo must be willing to restructure his contract for any deal to get done, and if he wasn't it's entirely possible Romo would already have been released. The Cowboys should have a better idea of what they may be able to get for Romo when NFL teams convene at the Combine, which begins on Tuesday, February 28.

According to ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure, the 49ers are a "strong possibility" to sign impending free agent Jacob Tamme.

The 31-year-old said he loves being a Falcon but could opt to join his former OC Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. The 49ers just signed Vance McDonald to a five-year extension, though it wouldn't hurt to bring in a veteran to implement Shanahan's offense. Either way, Austin Hooper is slated for a bigger role.

Dolphins signed DE Cameron Wake to a two-year, $19 million extension.

The deal includes $11 million guaranteed. The Dolphins are rewarding Wake after he posted 11.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, and 66 total QB pressures in another All Pro season. He didn't show any signs of slowing down coming off a torn Achilles, leading all 4-3 ends in pass-rushing productivity at PFF despite opening the year in a situational role. Miami didn't need to re-sign Wake but would have risked losing him in a walk year. The extension locks Wake up through 2018, his age-37 season.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said he is not looking for a "short-term fix" at quarterback.

"You want to make a commitment to somebody," Shanahan said. "In order to do that, you better make sure you’re on the same page with everyone else and you put the time in, you talk to people who’ve been with these guys." These comments would seem to shoot down reports of Matt Schaub and Brian Hoyer being options, but those guys will be nothing but bridge quarterbacks at best. The 49ers could commit to an early-round pick like UNC's Mitch Trubisky and still have him compete with a veteran in camp. With little chance of winning right now, that might even be the best option.

In addition to Matt Schaub, the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows names Brian Hoyer as a free agent quarterback the 49ers might pursue.

Schaub has been previously speculated as a fit in San Francisco after spending the last two years with Kyle Shanahan in Atlanta. Hoyer played for Shanahan in Cleveland, and has been far more effective in recent years than Schaub. Barring an unlikely-if-intriguing match with Kirk Cousins, the 49ers will be scraping the bottom of the barrel for veteran quarterback options. Barrows didn't rule out the Niners signing both Hoyer and Schaub in free agency.

WBRC FOX6 reports free agent Trent Richardson was arrested for domestic violence Thursday night in Hoover, Alabama.

A female victim was treated for scratches and bruises. The incident reportedly began at a Wal-Mart and continued until police were called to a Hyatt hotel, where Richardson was taken into custody. He's been charged with third-degree domestic violence and will appear before a judge on Friday. Richardson is being held on $1,000 bond. The former third overall pick hasn't played an NFL snap since 2014.

Impending free agent Michael Floyd pled guilty to one count of extreme DUI Thursday in Scottsdale City Court.

The other six counts were dismissed. Floyd will serve a 120-day jail sentence, including 24 days in county jail and 96 days of home detention. He also must complete 30 hours of community service and pay a $5,115.99 fine. It's not a worst case scenario for Floyd, but it's pretty close. There was no way he was going to avoid jail time after blowing a .217. Coming off a down year, Floyd's free agent prospects aren't looking good.

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Jets are able to void Darrelle Revis' deal if he's suspended or fined for conduct detrimental to the team or for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

The Jets were already unlikely to bring Revis back at his $13 million salary, and his arrest makes it even easier to move on. If Revis is suspended or fined, the Jets can recoup his entire salary including the $6 million he was guaranteed for 2017. The Jets have until March 11 to decide his fate. Revis is due a $2 million roster bonus on that date.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports "there's optimism" the Jaguars will be able to acquire LT Branden Albert.

Trades can't be announced until the start of the new league year, March 9. But teams can obviously talk between now and then and agree to compensation and the parameters of a deal. Per Garafolo, Jacksonville is the "primary destination" for Albert, confirming a report from the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Salguero suggested an Albert-for-Julius Thomas swap. That's one option where each team can rid itself of an overpaid veteran who doesn't fit in his current city.

ESPN's Jason Reid reports "former Redskins officials who know Kirk Cousins" have said Cousins doesn't want to be in Washington and would prefer to be franchise-tagged rather than sign a long-term deal.

The sides have made what sounds like zero progress on a long-term deal, and Cousins may be fed up with the way Washington handled negotiations the past two years. The front office clearly didn't believe in Cousins last year, making him prove himself again on a one-year tag, and Cousins answered the bell with a big season. It's fair to wonder if the "former Redskins officials" Reid is referring to is someone from the old Shanahan regime, as then-OC Kyle Shanahan literally "stood on a table" for Cousins when they drafted him. Now the head coach in quarterback-less San Francisco, Shanahan remains enamored with Cousins, who has made it known the feeling is mutual. If Cousins is able to force his way out of D.C., a reunion in Santa Clara would be a good bet.
