The Seahawks explored the possibility of acquiring Tim Tebow, but are not expected to pursue him further.

The Seattle Times reported that the Seahawks did "look into acquiring" Tebow, but he's no longer thought to be a consideration. With Matt Flynn dealt to Oakland, Seattle is left only with newly signed Josh Portis as Russell Wilson's backup. The Times named Seneca Wallace, Tyler Thigpen, Brady Quinn, and Matt Leinart as candidates to back up Wilson. Wallace and Thigpen are the likeliest fits.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says there's a "real sense" Tampa Bay has its sights set on Oregon QB Marcus Mariota at No. 1 overall.

Schefter concedes that "many NFL executives and scouts believe Florida State's Jameis Winston is the best pro quarterback prospect in this draft." But perhaps the Bucs and new OC Dirk Koetter see things differently, placing more stock in Mariota's mobility and clean off-field resume. More likely, there's just a lot of speculation out there right now with the draft still three months away. We're skeptical the Bucs have come close to making up their mind yet.

Broncos hired Wade Phillips as defensive coordinator.

Everyone except irrational Cowboys fans seems to realize how great a coach and defensive mind Phillips is. This is a fantastic hire for the Broncos, who reunite Gary Kubiak with Phillips after the two teamed to turn the Texans into a legitimate Super Bowl contender in the early 2010s. Phillips runs an aggressive "one-gap" 3-4 defense, which will play to the edge-rushing strengths of Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware. Outgoing DC Jack Del Rio essentially refused to blitz in 2014, and ultimately failed to maximize Denver's otherworldly defensive talent.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the 49ers are expected to promote QBs coach Geep Chryst to offensive coordinator.

This was expected when the 49ers hired Steve Logan as QBs coach. San Francisco is staying in-house after Rob Chudzinski re-signed with the Colts. Chryst has coached the 49ers' quarterbacks the last four seasons and has limited playcalling experience, but did serve as the Chargers' OC from 1999-2000. It's not an exciting hire for a team that already has an unproven coach in Jim Tomsula. The 49ers' coaching staff has taken a big step back this winter.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports Richard Sherman has torn ligaments in his elbow.

It's the first we've heard of any torn ligaments, but Sherman has continually insisted it's not an issue. Sherman has been practicing in full ahead of Sunday's Super Bowl. Per Werder, Sherman is "improving daily," and "finished with treatment." It's possible we'll learn that Sherman is dealing with a more serious injury than he's letting on following SB XLIX.

Colts agreed to terms with WR Duron Carter.

The deal isn't expected to be officially announced until next month, but all signs have been pointing Carter toward the Colts for weeks. Carter has been a hyped prospect for years, but couldn't make the Vikings as a 2013 undrafted free agent, due in part to character concerns. He then headed to Canada where he had a productive two-year stint for the Montreal Alouettes. Carter boasts imposing size at 6-foot-4, 200-ish pounds, but sure-thing prospects don't spend two years north of the border. He's a high-upside flier for the Colts, but not one that's guaranteed to make the roster, let alone earn a starting job.

Former agent Joel Corry confirms Trent Richardson's suspension voids the guarantees on his $3.18M 2015 base salary.

Richardson was suspended during the playoffs for conduct detrimental to the team. He'll likely file a grievance through the NFLPA, but if the suspension stands then the Colts can dump their inept running back without paying him the final year of his guaranteed rookie contract. It would be a tiny silver lining for the franchise, who gave the Browns a first-round pick to acquire Richardson early in the 2013 season. He's been outperformed badly by players named Boom Herron and Zurlon Tipton.

Colts re-signed Rob Chudzinski to a new contract under the title of associate head coach.

Chudzinski, who served as a "special assistant" to head coach Chuck Pagano in 2014, garnered interest from at least the 49ers and Rams over the last few weeks. It's interesting that he's passing on those offensive coordinator opportunities to stay in a background role with Indy. It's likely a financial promotion coupled with the presence of Andrew Luck (vs. Colin Kaepernick or Sam Bradford) swayed him. Regardless, arguably the top OC candidate that was still available is now off the board. Chud is a talent maximizer that loves to utilize the tight end in the pass game. His return is great news for Luck, Dwayne Allen, Coby Fleener and the entire Colts offense that ranked No. 3 in the league.

ESPN Steelers reporter Scott Brown says free agent CB Ike Taylor is "unlikely" to be re-signed.

It's a sad day for matchup-savvy fantasy owners. Taylor was a weekly target for the last few seasons, giving up countless big plays to front-line receivers. Notable whippings in 2014 came at the hands of Kenny Stills in Week 13 (5-162-1) and A.J Green in Week 14 (11-224-1). Although the Steelers are razor-thin and severely lacking talent at corner, moving on from Taylor is their only move. At age 35 (in May), he could very well be at the end of the line.

Raiders re-signed SS Charles Woodson to a one-year contract.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie has a curious affinity for declining veterans. Woodson remains a team leader at age 38, but his on-field play slipped precipitously as the 2014 season progressed. He wound up grading out 68th among 87 qualifiers in PFF's safety grades, but did rack up 113 tackles and four interceptions. Woodson is very likely to return as a 2015 starter.

FOX's Jay Glazer reports the NFL has identified a Patriots locker room attendant as a "strong person of interest" in the ball-deflation scandal.

The league finally has its Ollie North. Per Glazer, the attendant "allegedly took balls from the officials' locker room to another area on way to the field." There is reportedly video of the incident. Glazer says the league is "still gauging if any wrong doing occurred." It's been obvious from Day 1 the Pats were going to set up some sort of underling as the fall guy, the only question is if he'll sing. The entire "scandal" is long past played out. It would be a shame were it to dominate all pre-SB chatter.

A source tells NJ.com that the Rams have interest in Nick Foles if the Eagles decide to trade him this offseason.

Foles is 14-4 as a starter over the last two seasons, but there's plenty of reason to believe he is not Chip Kelly's guy for the long haul. Kelly inherited Foles, he prefers a mobile quarterback, Foles regressed sharply as a thrower in Year 2 and the Eagles could be plotting a move up in the draft for Oregon QB Marcus Mariota. According to NJ.com, the QB-desperate Titans and Texans would also have interest in Foles, who has one year remaining on his rookie contract. The Rams have already said Sam Bradford (ACL surgery) will face competition in training camp.
