Chiefs signed OLB Frank Zombo, formerly of the Packers.

He's reuniting with ex-Packers personnel man John Dorsey, who's now the GM in Kansas City. Zombo, 26, racked up four sacks in 2010 but his production has dipped steadily since and he managed eight sack-less tackles last season as a reserve in Green Bay. He'll compete to back up Justin Houston and Tamba Hali.

Impending free agent Cordarrelle Patterson said he felt wanted by the Vikings this season.

Patterson said he "didn't feel wanted" by Minnesota during Mike Zimmer's first two years in charge and was focused on "trying to get out." Patterson had a change of heart this season, likely in no small part because he actually had a role on offense, and now wants to stay. Price will likely determine if the Vikings feel the same way, but they should be interested in keeping around a guy who has led the league in kick return average three of the last four seasons.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson said he "definitely" wants to re-sign impending free agent TE Jack Doyle.

This, of course, assumes Grigson will still be the general manager, but it looks like he is safe at this point. Doyle had a breakout 2016, hauling in 59 passes for 584 yards and five touchdowns. All three numbers eclipsed his career totals entering the year. Doyle is not the type of dynamic receiving threat which commands big dollars on the open market, but he should be looking for more than the three-year, $13-million deal Brent Celek landed last January.

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said the team is "penciling in" LB Jaylon Smith (knee) "as a big-time contributor."

The Cowboys have been consistently optimistic about Smith's ability to return from the gruesome knee injury he suffered in the Fiesta Bowl last January. The injury resulted in nerve damage which has been slow to repair, but Smith said he is getting closer to normal. He might never be the top-ten pick he was before the injury, but it looks like Smith will at least be able to contribute. He is expected to get on the field in OTAs.

Scout.com's Ben Standig reports Rob Kelley underwent surgery on his right knee following Washington's season-ending loss to the Giants.

Kelley suffered the injury in Week 16, played with a brace against the Giants, and had the knee operated on shortly after the loss. A source told Standig the surgery was "relatively minor" and "dealt with the meniscus." Kelley averaged just 3.33 yards per carry over the Redskins' final six games and showed next to no passing-game ability. He'll face competition for his starting job in 2017.

Chargers hired Gus Bradley as defensive coordinator.

Bradley previously flirted with the Redskins and drew interest from the 49ers. A Pete Carroll disciple, Bradley installed a Cover 3 scheme in Jacksonville and the defense was coming together nicely with a young talent core just as Bradley was fired. In Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward, and Joey Bosa, Bradley is inheriting a Chargers defense with some important building blocks in place.

Sports Illustrated's Mike Silver reports the 49ers are still pursuing Gus Bradley for their vacant defensive coordinator position.

Bradley had his sights set on reuniting with Tom Cable, but he recently withdrew his name from consideration for the Niners' head-coaching job. The Niners are reportedly "upping their offer" to Bradley, so it looks like they're fairly serious about bringing him on board. Bradley has also been linked to vacancies in San Diego and Washington this offseason.

Sammy Watkins underwent foot surgery on Friday, January 20.

The Buffalo News previously reported Watkins needed more surgery, so this note is just for bookkeeping purposes. The Bills announced the procedure and claimed Watkins should be ready for training camp in 2017. Watkins has now undergone two surgeries to address a Jones fracture in his foot. Not yet 24 years old, Watkins will need to overcome repeated early-career injury setbacks in order to realize his immense NFL ceiling.

Aaron Rodgers admitted to reporters that he felt under the weather on Friday.

"Rest fluids, all that stuff," Rodgers replied when asked what measures he's taken to deal with the illness. "We'll be okay. Jordy (Nelson) had it. Mason (Crosby) had it. I got it. We'll deal with it." Rodgers confirmed a flu or cold has been going around the team. It prevented Nelson from practicing on Friday. Rodgers did practice fully Friday and is not listed on the injury report.

Per ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, Malcolm Mitchell's (knee, questionable) availability is "trending in the right direction" for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Steelers.

Reiss calls Mitchell's situation "unlike" last week, when "it was clear" Mitchell would not play. Michael Floyd struggled with timing and dropped passes in New England's playoff win over Houston and could conceivably lose playing time to a health Mitchell. Mitchell has not appeared in a game since Week 16.

SI's Greg Bedard said he noticed Chris Hogan (thigh, questionable) had a "solid limp" in the locker room on Friday.

Hogan is fully expected to suit up for Sunday's AFC title game against Pittsburgh, but it's fair to wonder how effective he'll be playing at less than 100 percent. With Hogan banged up and Malcolm Mitchell (knee) coming off a long layoff, the Patriots may need to lean even more than usual on Julian Edelman this week. They could also use more production from Martellus Bennett.

Updating a previous item, the Falcons listed Julio Jones (toe) as "limited" in Friday's practice.

Julio was listed as DNP on Wednesday and Thursday. Early-Friday reports had him returning to a full practice, but Julio was officially limited. Either way, Julio is going to play against the Packers. While his health remains a lingering question mark, Julio's mere presence on the field -- even if for some reason he isn't heavily targeted -- is a massive boon to Atlanta's offense.
