Updating an earlier item, Alex Green missed Wednesday's practice with a concussion.

However, coach Mike McCarthy is "encouraged" Green will be ready for Sunday's game against the Titans. The Packers would be down to an extremely shaky running back trio of DuJuan Harris, Ryan Grant and John Kuhn if Green couldn't go. McCarthy's words are obviously encouraging, but if you were planning on starting Green in your flex spot for the fantasy finals, you need to have a contingency plan ready.

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.

Kent Somers of AZCentral Sports reports the Cardinals have "zero interest" in Jay Cutler.

MMQB's Peter King wrote he "wouldn't be shocked" if Cutler ended up with the Cardinals, but Somers makes it clear that is not a real option. It also never made much sense for Cutler to sit for at least a year behind Carson Palmer when he should have starting options even if the Bears decide to move on. Even though they are not interested in Cutler, the Cardinals have to find their quarterback of the future this offseason.

ESPN's Jordan Raanan reports the Giants are "genuinely trying to keep the defense intact."

That would mean re-signing both DT Johnathan Hankins and DE Jason Pierre-Paul, who Raanan thinks might draw the franchise tag. Not only would the decision to re-sign both players cost a lot of money, it would tie up a ton of cap space in the defensive line after New York splurged on DE Olivier Vernon and DT Damon Harrison last spring. That said, the foundation of the Giants' defense is the line, and both players are worth the price.

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports Kirk Cousins will not sign a long-term deal prior to the March 1 deadline for the Redskins to apply the franchise tag.

With a third tag not a functional option, Cousins has all the leverage in the negotiations over a long-term deal, and it looks like he is going to use it. Once the Redskins apply the tag, which they almost certainly will, Cousins can ask for at the very least the value of the tag ($23.94 million) paid out in 2017 and a raise on that total guaranteed in 2018. If Washington balks at that price, Cousins can play out another one-year tender and test the open market next spring, which reports suggest is his preferred option anyway. It is far from a given the Redskins lock up Cousins to a long-term deal.
