Terrelle Pryor and Matt Leinart split first-team reps in Raiders practice Wednesday.

Coach Dennis Allen said on Monday he didn't believe Pryor was ready to start, but has changed his tune. "We got a chance to see what Matt could do, and maybe it's time to see what Pryor can do." As long-time beat writer Jerry McDonald points out, perhaps it was because Allen has since broken down the film of Sunday's loss, where Leinart played abysmally. The 4-11 Raiders have nothing to lose by starting Pryor and getting a look at a player former owner Al Davis dubiously used a third-round pick on.

Colts re-signed QB Matt Hasselbeck to a one-year deal.

Seven months shy of his 40th birthday, Hasselbeck is returning for a third year of backing up Andrew Luck. Hasselbeck had appeared a candidate for retirement, as he actually called a game for FOX Sports during the Colts' bye week last season. The longtime Seahawks starter has attempted just 56 combined passes the past two seasons, and appeared slight when on the field. He'd likely be a disaster if forced into extended action, but the Colts clearly value his veteran presence.

Falcons released RB Steven Jackson.

The move clears $3.75 million in cap space, and was a no-brainer based on Jackson's play the past two seasons. S-Jax averaged 4.23 yards per carry in nine years as a Ram, but saw that number dip to 3.60 in Atlanta. Constantly battling leg injuries, S-Jax was running on fumes from the moment he arrived in Atlanta. Going on 32 with 3,203 career touches to his name, it's quite possible Jackson's playing days are at an end. For now, Devonta Freeman is the new lead back in Atlanta, but he'll undoubtedly face competition in the form of a draft pick.

Redskins signed DL Ricky Jean-Francois to a three-year, $9 million deal.

The deal includes $4 million guaranteed, and could be worth as much as $11.25 million if Jean-Francois reaches certain incentives. It's a nice chunk of change for a player who got released by the Colts just three days ago. Jean-Francois had a negative Pro Football Focus rating in both of his seasons with the Colts, and generated only 5.5 sacks in 26 games. He was drafted by new Redskins GM Scot McCloughan in San Francisco.

The NFL is appealing independent arbitrator David Doty's ruling in the Adrian Peterson case to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, and will keep Peterson on the commissioner's exempt list in the interim.

The case will also concurrently be returned to arbitrator Harold Henderson, who originally upheld Peterson's suspension in December. If this all seems dense and confusing, it's because it is. There's no telling how much longer Peterson will remain in limbo. The league seems more concerned with precedent than whether Peterson was fairly punished. It certainly doesn't care about Peterson's 2015 status, which will be greatly complicated if the matter isn't resolved by the time free agency begins on March 10.

Rams released DT Kendall Langford.

The move clears $6 million in cap space. Signed to a four-year, $24 million deal in March 2012, Langford was a 16-game starter in 2012 and 2013, but was benched in favor of Aaron Donald last season. He played just 494 snaps, managing one sack. Still only 29, Langford has experience at defensive end. That versatility and relative youth should earn him some guaranteed money on the open market.

The Charlotte Observer reports free agent Greg Hardy is seeking "immediate reinstatement" following Thursday's ruling in the Adrian Peterson case.

Independent arbiter David Doty has ruled the league's new domestic-violence policy can't be applied retroactively, leaving Hardy's placement on the commissioner's exempt list in violation of the CBA. It's still up to the league to actually reinstate Hardy, however, while it might continue its quixotic legal quest. Hopefully there is clarity by this time next week.

Chiefs released TE Anthony Fasano.

The move clears $1.959 million in cap space. More importantly for fantasy purposes, it frees up last year's TE8, Travis Kelce, to go absolutely bonkers in 2015. Going on 31, Fasano was constantly banged up in 2014, and it was reflected by his play. He caught just 25 passes for 226 yards over 15 games, and his run blocking fell off a cliff. A nine-year veteran who's had a well-rounded game, Fasano will undoubtedly latch on elsewhere, but there's no guarantee he'll crack someone's 53-man roster.

Titans LT Michael Roos announced his retirement from the NFL.

The 41st pick in the 2005 draft, Roos played in the league ten seasons, starting 148 games and earning a Pro Bowl nod in 2008. He never received many accolades, but Roos was a steady, reliable, above-average blindside protector. Instead of heading to the open market as a free agent, Roos is retiring as a member of the only team he's ever known. It was doubtful the Titans would have re-signed Roos had he kept playing. 2014 first-round pick Taylor Lewan is now locked in at left tackle. Right tackle remains a need.

A source tells the Associated Press the Bills are in contract talks with free agent Josh McCown.

McCown met with the Bills last week and has since visited the Browns, Bears and Jets. It sounds like he's close to choosing Buffalo. Kyle Orton finished 2014 as Buffalo's starter but retired after the season, leaving only E.J. Manuel and Jeff Tuel on the roster at quarterback. Assuming the contract gets completed, McCown will compete with Manuel for the starting job in one of the least inspiring quarterback duels around the league.

Eagles released RG Todd Herremans.

Though Eagles fans may feel sentimental about a guy that started 124 games for Philadelphia over the last decade, this was for the best. Herremans has been in decline for a while, struggling mightily in pass protection in recent seasons. His 2014 campaign was cut short by a midseason biceps injury. Cutting Herremans saves the Eagles $2.8M in 2015 cap space -- but also makes offensive line one of the team's biggest priorities, behind quarterback and pass-defense help. Allen Barbre and Matt Tobin are in-house candidates to step in at right guard.

The Broncos are working on a revised contract with Peyton Manning.

"Multiple sources" tell the Denver Post that Manning has "determined he intends to play" in 2015, but a formal announcement is apparently contingent on this contract revision. The Broncos are currently $26 million under the salary cap, but that doesn't include Demaryius Thomas' forthcoming franchise number ($12.8 million) and any free agent signings or re-signings. Manning and his agent, Tom Condon, "hope to reach a conclusion on a revised contract by early next week." Manning's $19 million base salary becomes guaranteed on March 9.
