A source with knowledge of the situation tells USA Today the Redskins are going to "make a push" for free agent CB Aqib Talib.

The Redskins have one of the league's worst cap situations, but a major need at cornerback after cutting DeAngelo Hall. Washington was 30th in pass defense last season. GM Bruce Allen drafted Talib in Tampa, while DBs coach Raheem Morris was his head coach. Making a long-term commitment to a player with Talib's off-field history would be a huge risk for a team in Washington's financial position, but prudence and patience have never been owner Dan Snyder's virtues. The more things change in D.C., the more they stay the same.

Speaking Thursday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said injured receivers Davante Adams (ankle), Jordy Nelson (ribs) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) probably wouldn't play Sunday if it were the regular season.

Neither Adams nor Allison practiced on Thursday, and aren't expected to do so until Saturday's walk-through. McCarthy's comments indicated all three players will play, but none of them are anywhere close to 100 percent. It could be a problem in a game where the Pack will have to score all afternoon to keep up. Randall Cobb is shaping up as a nice DFS play. Trevor Davis and Jeff Janis are going to have to play increased snaps.

Jets owner Woody Johnson is expected to be named the United States' new ambassador to the United Kingdom.

Johnson, who struggles to run a football team, is undoubtedly extremely qualified to be an ambassador to one of America's most important allies. The move could be a boon for Jets fans, as Johnson will have less time to meddle with his team. Johnson will presumably have to take off his ever-present Jets ball cap for his ambassador business.

Julio Jones (toe) remained sidelined Thursday, but insisted he'll be ready for Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

Jones probably won't practice Friday, either, but there's no question he'll be out there against the Packers. The question is how effective he will be after aggravating his toe injury last Saturday.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Seahawks could be docked a second-round pick for failing to disclose Richard Sherman's MCL injury.

Yikes. Coach Pete Carroll has to be regretting trying to explain away Sherman's (slightly) down 2016 right about now. What the Seahawks did is blatantly against the rules, but a second-rounder would be an extraordinarily severe punishment. The Seahawks are no strangers to pushing boundaries, but there's not a team in the league that doesn't play injury report games. The Seahawks are already missing a 2017 fifth-rounder for illegal offseason practice activity.

Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf removed his name from consideration for the 49ers' vacant general manager position.

Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports Wolf was given a new contract in Green Bay, one that might include language about his eventual replacement of GM Ted Thompson. Packers director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst appears to be the favorite for the 49ers job.

Adrian Peterson said he is interested in playing for the Texans, Bucs, and Giants.

Peterson is still under contract with the Vikings, but there seems to be little hope he remains with the team next season. Owed $18 million in salary and bonuses including a $6 million roster bonus due on March 11, there is also little chance any team trades for the aging star. That means Peterson should have his pick of the litter once he is released, but none of these teams are viable options right now. The Texans just spent a lot of money on Lamar Miller, and Peterson is not a good fit in the Giants' shotgun-heavy attack. The Bucs could be an option if they decide to move on from Doug Martin, but Peterson is not a better player than Martin at this point in his career and might end up costing more. Along with Tony Romo, Peterson's search for a new team will be one of the biggest storylines this offseason.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Andrew Luck (shoulder surgery) should be ready for "a full return" in six months.

Luck underwent surgery on a lingering shoulder injury after the season. RapSheet reports he should be able to resume throwing in three months and return to full practice by mid-July. It looks like Luck will miss most if not all of the offseason program, but he should be ready for training camp. His Week 1 availability is not in doubt.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Geronimo Allison (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against the Falcons.

Allison said he sat out practice Wednesday "for precautionary reasons," so this is not a big surprise. With Davante Adams (ankle) likely to be limited even if he plays and Jordy Nelson (ribs) a "longshot," Allison could play a big role in a great matchup against the Falcons.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers expect Davante Adams (ankle) to play Sunday against the Falcons.

RapSheet adds Geronimo Allison (leg) is also expected to suit up. It is a surprising report considering Adams has already been ruled out for the first three days of practice, but perhaps the Packers are just getting him as much rest as possible. His availability for Saturday's practice still needs to be monitored closely, but as of now he can be penciled into DFS lineups.
Jan 19 - 10:25 AM

Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Marcus Mariota (broken leg) is "on track" and "doing great."

"He should be back when we get this thing rolling," Mularkey added. It is not clear if things get "rolling" in OTAs or training camp, but there is no doubt Mariota will be ready for Week 1. Coming off a breakout season, Mariota should be able to take another step forward in 2017 if the Titans can surround him with one or two more weapons.
Jan 19 - 10:11 AM

Jordy Nelson (broken ribs) admitted he worked "slowly" back into Wednesday's practice.

Officially, he was listed as "limited." Either way, it was a step in the right direction. "I just caught some balls, tried to slowly work back in to it and feel things out," Nelson described. Nelson admitted he is entering unknown territory in his "hopeful" quest to play against the Falcons. "I've never played receiver with broken ribs," said Jordy. "We'll find out, hopefully. ... It's one of those things that you'll figure out when you get there. If it happens, we'll see how it goes."
