Michael Crabtree is active and will start on Sunday versus the Falcons in the NFC Championship game.

Crabtree was questioned by San Francisco Police late this week in his connection to an alleged sexual assault last weekend, but he traveled with the team to Atlanta and was never in serious doubt to miss the game. The 49ers inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, LB Cam Johnson, S Trenton Robinson, RB Jewel Hampton, DT Tony Jerod-Eddie, OG Joe Looney, and DT Ian Williams.

Chargers signed WR/KR Jacoby Jones, formerly of the Ravens, to a two-year contract.

Jones, 31 in July, should provide a spark to the Bolts' return game after they finished 22nd and 16th in kick return and punt return average last season. He's not going to do much on offense, as Malcom Floyd is already in the fold as the deep threat. And Jones isn't an option to replace Eddie Royal in the slot.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins and Saints are ready to make a run at free agent RB Justin Forsett.

It makes sense for New Orleans to pursue a running back with Mark Ingram headed for free agency, but hearing Washington's name in Forsett discussions is a bit of a shock. Alfred Morris has been one of the most productive rushers in the league over the last three seasons. It's hard to envision Morris splitting carries with a 29-year-old journeyman. Despite all the interest Forsett is getting from other teams, there's still a good chance he winds up back in Baltimore.

Jets acquired WR Brandon Marshall from the Bears in exchange for a fifth-round pick.

This should effectively end Percy Harvin's time with the Jets. The Jets will take on Marshall's $7.7 million salary and delete Harvin's $10.5 million, sliding Marshall in opposite Eric Decker. Marshall gives the Jets a true No. 1 receiver, allowing Decker to settle back in as a complementary No. 2. It became increasingly clear over the past 24 hours that Marshall wasn't returning to Chicago. New Jets coach Todd Bowles was with Marshall in Miami from 2010-2011. Marshall's fantasy outlook takes a hit going from Marc Trestman's offense to Geno Smith, but new OC Chan Gailey has always had a creative mind. Marshall will be a fantasy WR2 in New York. Gailey runs a spread offense and Marshall should remain heavily targeted, even of those targets are likely to be less efficient with Gang Green.

The Colts announced they will not re-sign free agent Reggie Wayne.

NFL free agency is not for the faint of heart. Already this week we've seen the Pats kick Vince Wilfork to the curb, the Steelers practically beg Troy Polamalu to hang up his cleats and now Wayne, an Indianapolis lifer, is being shown the door. Wayne hasn't been the same player since his 2013 ACL tear and at 36, a return to form is beyond unlikely. Wayne was only 235 yards away from tying Marvin Harrison for the most receiving yards in Colts history. Given his age and recent injuries, Wayne will probably have to settle for a one-year minimum deal if he hopes to keep playing.

Marques Colston has agreed to a restructured contract to keep him with the Saints.

In all likelihood, we're looking at a straight pay cut from Colston. He was scheduled to earn $6.9 million this season and count $9.7 million against the cap. Coming off a poor season and about to turn 32, he had to do something with his contract if he wanted to stick around. It probably would have made more sense to outright cut Colston, but GM Mickey Loomis has been extremely loyal to veterans.

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs reports the Bears' new regime "appears intent on moving on from" Brandon Marshall.

The Bears are reportedly seeking a mid-round pick in exchange for Marshall, but Biggs believes the 31-year-old may be released if a deal isn't found before Marshall's salary becomes guaranteed next Thursday. Scheduled to earn $7.7 million this season in the second year of a four-year deal, that's not overbearing for a true No. 1 receiver like Marshall. He's coming off an injury-plagued season, but the ankles shouldn't be an issue in 2015. Expect Marshall to draw a ton of interest if he hits the free-agent market. We also wouldn't rule out a trade.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have "(internally discussed)" free agent Cecil Shorts.

Cleaning house at receiver, the Dolphins would be buying low on a player who appeared on the verge of exploding in 2012. Per reporter Barry Jackson, the Dolphins like what Shorts brings after the catch. According to Pro Football Focus, Shorts averaged 5.1 yards after the catch in 2014, a nice number. Recently released Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson offered nothing after the catch.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are still "genuinely uncertain" about Mike Wallace's future with the team.

Per reporter Barry Jackson, there is front-office support for keeping Wallace, but "the cap hit is an issue." Owed $32.9 million over the next three seasons, Wallace comes with a $12.1 million cap number for 2015. That's steep for a team that's apparently all in on free agent Ndamukong Suh. On the other hand, Miami has already cut Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson, and isn't entirely assured of keeping transition player Charles Clay. Cutting Wallace is far from a no-brainer.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports "teams certainly know" that Jay Cutler is available via trade.

With $10 million of Cutler's 2016 salary set to become guaranteed on Tuesday — Cutler's $15.5 million for 2015 is already locked in — the Bears are seeing if there's anyone willing to take on a quarterback who was benched for Jimmy Clausen last season. It's not completely outside the realm of a possibility — this is a league where Josh McCown will be starting in Week 1 — but it's a hope and a prayer for a team clearly tired of Cutler's act. Our guess is that the Bears won't be able to eat Cutler's 2015 salary whilst simultaneously leaving themselves without a quarterback, and will roll the dice on Smokin' Jay for the next two years.

"Numerous sources" tell CBS' Jason La Canfora that it's a "distinct possibility" the Titans are sold in 2015.

CEO Tommy Smith angrily denied sale rumors in January, but the murmurs won't die. Smith took over as team president following the death of Bud Adams in 2013. The Titans have been ineptly run for the better part of a decade. New ownership would likely be a good thing for fans.

Panthers signed TE Greg Olsen to a three-year, $22.5 million extension through 2018.

The deal includes a whopping $12 million signing bonus. Headed into the final year of his contract, Olsen had been set to make $5.25 million. The new deal is well deserved for one of the league's most consistent players. Olsen has caught at least 69 passes each of the past three seasons, and posted new career highs in receptions (84) and yards (1,008) last season. He turns 30 next week.
