Ahmad Bradshaw (knee) returned to practice on Friday.

Hakeem Nicks (knee) is practicing again as well. Coach Tom Coughlin wanted to wait to see how Bradshaw's knee reacted to the work on Friday before giving his starting tailback the green light for Sunday's game. Bradshaw's participation does bode well for his return to game action, however. Check back in an hour or so for an update on Bradshaw's status.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor is active for Super Bowl XLIX.

Cardinals promoted OLBs coach James Bettcher to defensive coordinator.

This has been the expected move for a couple weeks now following Todd Bowles' departure to become the Jets' coach. Bettcher has only been a coach at the NFL level since 2012 when he entered the league with the Colts. Prior to that, he was the special teams coordinator at New Hampshire. Bruce Arians brought Bettcher to Arizona with him. Bettcher will get plenty of help.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks have offered Marshawn Lynch "a huge contract extension that would keep him in a Seahawks uniform for years to come."

It's believed the deal would make Lynch the highest-paid running back in terms of annual average not named Adrian Peterson. It's a big swing of events after it's been rumored for the better part of a calendar year now that 2014 could be Lynch's final season in Seattle due to age, inflated salary, and edginess. Per RapSheet, the new deal would pay Lynch around $10 million next season.

Associated Press named Aaron Rodgers its 2014 NFL Most Valuable Player.

It's the second time in four years Rodgers has won the award. Rodgers posted a 38:5 TD/INT ratio this past season, leading the Packers to a first-round bye and the NFC's No. 2 seed. He received 31 votes, beating out J.J. Watt (13), DeMarco Murray (2), Tony Romo (2), Tom Brady (1), and Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner (1). Despite winning MVP, Rodgers lost to Murray for Offensive Player of the Year. Rodgers remains locked in as the NFL's premier quarterback going into 2015.

Associated Press named Odell Beckham its 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

After missing the first month of the season to a hamstring injury, Beckham took the league by storm with a 91/1,305/12 line over the final 12 games. His famous one-handed catch was the play of the year, and one of the best catches in NFL history. Beckham had at least 90 receiving yards or a touchdown in all but one game. He finished with 42 first-place votes, beating out Zack Martin (7) and Mike Evans (1). Beckham will return with Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle to form one of the league's better receiver corps in 2015.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians "desperately" wants Larry Fitzgerald to stay in Arizona.

"We definitely, desperately want him to stay," Arians said. "He knows that. It’s really his decision." With a massive $23.6 million cap figure for 2015, Fitzgerald's decision will be whether to take a pay cut to stay in Arizona or force the Cardinals to cut him before his $8 million roster bonus comes due in March. There is some growing optimism the two sides will work out a deal, but it remains a distinct possibility Fitzgerald will not be a Cardinal next season.

ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes impending free agent Dez Bryant is "destined" for the franchise tag.

Archer is one of the most plugged-in NFL beat reporters and has been anticipating Dez wearing Dallas' 2015 franchise tag since last summer. The price of the wide receiver tag is expected to be around $13 million. The Cowboys want to eventually lock up Bryant long term, but Archer "highly doubts" the sides will strike a deal before free agency opens on March 10.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan stated Friday at the Super Bowl that he is "very optimistic" about the 2015 return of suspended WR Justin Blackmon.

"Absolutely," Khan stated vehemently. "As a matter of fact, I’m very optimistic. I think he’s paid his dues. I think he’s got his life together. I think he can be a role model for people who have gone through hard times. We’re waiting for him." Blackmon's return would be a huge boost to Jacksonville's wideout corps, which is dealing with Allen Robinson's foot fracture and Cecil Shorts' free agency. 25-year-old Blackmon is a run-after-catch machine with an ability to threaten the intermediate sections. He'd be a big upgrade on Shorts at Z receiver.

Peyton Manning met with new Broncos coach Gary Kubiak on Wednesday and team president Joe Ellis on Friday regarding his future plans.

He'll chat with GM John Elway shortly. Appearing at the Super Bowl, Manning reportedly appeared "relaxed" and "invigorated," and the Denver Post continues to expect him to play football in 2015. "I’d like to make a decision soon," Manning said in Arizona. "At the same time, coach and Joe and John have instructed me to take some time so I’m kind of following their orders."

ESPN Chicago's Michael C. Wright writes that "nobody knows" whether Brandon Marshall will be back with the Bears in 2015.

The Bears signed Marshall to a new four-year, $39 million deal last May, but the regime that handed him that extension is gone. Marshall is still a fine player and worth the money, but there's some question whether he'll be able to coexist with Chicago's new staff. OC Adam Gase was the Broncos' WRs coach when Josh McDaniels banished Marshall from Denver. Marshall also had a 2014 falling out with Jay Cutler. Per the website OverTheCap.com, the Bears could save $3.95 million in cap space by cutting Marshall this offseason.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says there's a "real sense" Tampa Bay has its sights set on Oregon QB Marcus Mariota at No. 1 overall.

Schefter concedes that "many NFL executives and scouts believe Florida State's Jameis Winston is the best pro quarterback prospect in this draft." But perhaps the Bucs and new OC Dirk Koetter see things differently, placing more stock in Mariota's mobility and clean off-field resume. More likely, there's just a lot of speculation out there right now with the draft still three months away. We're skeptical the Bucs have come close to making up their mind yet.
