Vernon Davis was forced from San Francisco's Week 16 game against the Seahawks with a concussion, and will not return.

Looking to pull down a catch near the goal-line toward the end of the first quarter, Davis found himself on the receiving end of the hit of the year from Seahawks S Kam Chancellor. Chancellor was flagged for the colossal break-up even though replays revealed it to be legal. Davis bounced up surprisingly quick, but was clearly clearing the cobwebs as he headed to the sideline. He'll now be questionable at best for Week 17, while the 49ers will have to lean on Delanie Walker at tight end. Davis had just one catch for 27 yards before departing.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jets and Bears have "emerged" as suitors for free agent QB Mike Glennon.

It would be quite a disappointing consolation prize, especially for the Bears, who have been closely linked to Jimmy Garoppolo. With the Patriots apparently unwilling to trade Garoppolo, quarterback-needy teams will have to look elsewhere. Glennon, Colin Kaepernick, Jay Cutler, and Brian Hoyer figure to be the best of the bunch that will be available. Glennon has been connected to the Jets for a few weeks now. He's expected to net $13-15 million per year.

Free agent DE Chris Long announced that he won't be re-signing with the Patriots.

It doesn't sound like there's any bad blood between the two sides whatsoever, but Long "want(s) to get back to being the player I was before" and play a bigger role on his next team. After being an every-down player with the Rams the first eight years of his career, Long took more of a back seat in New England, playing just 15 snaps in the Super Bowl as a situational pass rusher. Turning 32 later this month, Long probably doesn't have more than a couple years left.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, teams covet free agent OLB Nick Perry.

Speaking at the Combine on Wednesday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy expressed numerous times how he wants the team to re-sign Perry, but if we're to take La Canfora at his word, it sounds like there's going to be plenty of competition. Perry was looking like an early-career first-round bust, but he had a solid 2015 before exploding with an even bigger 2016 that saw him shatter his previous career-high of four sacks with 11 last year. Perry, 27 in April, was also Pro Football Focus' fourth-ranked 3-4 outside linebacker against the run.

Steelers re-signed OLB James Harrison to a two-year, $3.5 million contract.

The soon-to-be 39-year-old (in May) appears to have found a second wind since re-joining the Steelers in 2014 following a one-year stint with the Bengals. He has 15.5 sacks over the past three seasons and was Pro Football Focus' No. 8-ranked 3-4 outside linebacker out of 59 qualifiers last season. Harrison's tenacity off the edge was key in turning Pittsburgh's defense around.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Bucs aren't expected to aggressively pursue free agent Adrian Peterson.

At this moment, Tampa Bay would prefer to take it slow with suspended Doug Martin after visiting with him last week. Per ESPN Bucs reporter Jenna Laine, the Bucs believe Martin looks refreshed and healthy following rehab and want to see what the next 6-8 months bring. If the Bucs are going to add running back help, it might come via a rookie and re-signing Jacquizz Rodgers.

The News Tribune's Gregg Bell reports the Seahawks are expected to contact free agent LT Russell Okung.

Speaking at the Combine on Wednesday, GM John Schneider said he'd be interested in talking with Okung. The Seahawks need to perform a number of upgrades on their offensive line. We're not sure Okung qualifies, but he'd be a steadying veteran presence and obviously has plenty of familiarity after spending the first six years of his career in Seattle. Okung turns 29 this year.

Seahawks GM John Schneider doesn't expect restricted free agent RCB Deshawn Shead (ACL) to be ready for Week 1.

It's not a surprise after Shead tore his left ACL on January 14. It's also an untimely injury for Shead, who might have drawn interest on the restricted free agent market were he healthy. He'll now be easy for Seattle to retain. Schneider confirmed cornerback has become one of the Seahawks' top priorities.

Rams assigned the franchise tag to CB Trumaine Johnson.

By getting tagged for the second straight season, Johnson will now be the league's highest-paid CB in terms of annual salary this year at over $16 million. After losing CB Janoris Jenkins last offseason, the Rams weren't prepared to let Johnson follow him out the door. Now that they've essentially said Johnson is worth $16 million-plus, that will likely set the bar in long-term contract talks. Johnson has his ups and downs, but there are definitely more peaks than valleys in his game. He'll be DC Wade Phillips' new Aqib Talib as the Rams' No. 1 outside corner.

Appearing Wednesday at the Combine, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert spoke about suspended WR Martavis Bryant in the past tense.

It doesn't mean the Steelers have moved on from Bryant, but Colbert is the second member of Pittsburgh's front office to infer the team isn't counting on Bryant for 2017. "Martavis was a great asset to us when he was available," Colbert said. In late January, president Art Rooney II replied, "I'm not sure at this point you can count on him" when asked about Bryant, adding Martavis still had "a ways to go" to become a serious candidate for NFL reinstatement.

Director of player personnel Duke Tobin said the Bengals will "listen" to trade offers for backup QB A.J. McCarron.

With Jimmy Garoppolo reportedly likely to stay put unless some team knocks the Patriots' socks off, McCarron might be the next best thing on the trade market. Beat writer Paul Dehner previously wrote, "it's part of the offseason itinerary" for the Bengals to trade McCarron. He's under cheap team control for another two seasons, which would likely drive up his price. McCarron went 79-of-119 (66.4%) for 854 yards (7.2 YPA) and a 6:2 TD:INT ratio in seven appearances in 2015.

Coach Ben McAdoo said the Giants will "take a look" at free agent Adrian Peterson.

According to beat writer Ralph Vacchiano, however, McAdoo wouldn't commit to any real interest in Peterson. It sounds like it was more of a lukewarm answer from McAdoo. The Giants run a ton of shotgun offense with three-wide sets and no fullback, while Peterson is more of an I-formation runner who has always ran with a lead blocker. The Giants don't appear to be a great fit.
