NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported on Total Access that the Dolphins are willing to meet LT Branden Albert's asking price, but the hangup in a Kansas City-to-Miami trade is draft-pick compensation.

"I'm told the Dolphins do not have a problem with that," Rapoport said of Albert's price tag. "I know some people are saying different. I'm told they don't have a problem with it." Per Rapoport, Albert wants "Duane Brown money" -- not Jake Long money. Brown signed a six-year, $53.4 million extension last August, with $22.08 million guaranteed. It sounds like the Chiefs will send Albert to the Dolphins if the sides agree to trade terms. Miami has two second-rounders, but would prefer to part with No. 54 rather than 42.

Browns released WR Andrew Hawkins.

This was fully expected after Hawkins again played minor role in Cleveland's offense, amassing just 33 catches for 324 yards and three scores. Signed to a four-year deal in 2014, Hawkins had a solid first season with the Browns with a 63-825-2 line on 101 targets. But Hawkins saw just 90 total targets over the past two years. A slot man only at 5'7/180, Hawkins turns 31 in March.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini reiterated New York will "almost certainly" try to trade DE Sheldon Richardson over the next couple weeks.

Richardson is a man without a position in New York. Muhammad Wilkerson and Leonard Williams are the Jets' top two 3-4 ends, and coach Todd Bowles was forced to move Richardson around, giving him some reps at linebacker. He's a three-technique defensive lineman and one of the better interior pass rushers in the league. The Jets will likely try to get a first-rounder in return, but ultimately may have to settle for a day-two pick. Richardson has one year left on his contract at $8.069 million, which becomes guaranteed March 9.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports that unless something changes before Wednesday's deadline, the Chiefs are expected to franchise tag SS Eric Berry and let free agent NT Dontari Poe reach the market.

Berry will not be pleased in this scenario. He's already stated several times that he plans to sit out the 2017 season if forced to play on the tag a second year in a row. The Chiefs have a number of key free agents and can't afford to not tag one. Berry is the All Pro, but Poe should also find a healthy market.

According to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, the market for free agent Kenny Stills is "already in the $12 million-a-year" range.

It sounds absurd. Only six receivers around the entire league make $12 million-plus annually. With the salary cap only continuing to rise by the year, lower-tiered players are going to start making more. Stills had a career year in 2016 and is still really young, as he doesn't turn 25 until April. He's also more than just a deep threat. The Eagles are already said to be knocking down Stills' door preparing to make a run at him when free agency opens March 9. Salguero doesn't expect the Dolphins to come close to Stills' asking price.

ESPN's Ed Werder reports there is "mutual interest" between the Cowboys and free agent Josh McCown.

According to Werder, the Cowboys first need to resolve the Tony Romo situation before making a move on McCown. McCown, 38 in July, was released by the Browns earlier this month and is eligible to sign with a new team right away. He said he has spoken with a handful of teams and wants to go somewhere he can win and mentor a young passer. Dallas checks all the boxes.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bears will not use the franchise tag on free agent Alshon Jeffery.

ESPN Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson confirms RapSheet's report and adds that the two sides haven't talked about an extension in weeks, putting Jeffery's chances at re-signing with the Bears at "slim." Tagging Jeffery would cost the Bears around $17.5 million. It would be a lot of dough to commit to Jeffery, who hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2014 and was suspended four games for PEDs last year. Jeffery should land a monster deal on the open market as the top wideout available. The Eagles are fully expected to make a run at him.

Panthers re-signed DE Mario Addison to a three-year, $22.5 million contract.

He got $11.5 million guaranteed. Addison isn't a household name, but he is a big keep for Carolina. The 29-year-old rotational edge rusher led the Panthers in sacks (9.5) last season and has at least six quarterback takedowns in three straight years. Panthers GM Dave Gettleman's two biggest offseason priorities were retaining Addison and free agent DT Kawann Short. Short will almost certainly be franchise tagged by Wednesday's deadline.

According to 9News Denver's Mike Klis, the Broncos are expected to "at least discuss" pursuing Tony Romo if the Cowboys release him.

GM John Elway continues to insist the Broncos are satisfied with Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch, but nobody's buying it. Romo has listed Denver as one of his preferred landing spots and he'd be a near-perfect fit as a one or two-year bridge to Lynch, who profiles as the Broncos' quarterback of the future. Notably, Klis fails to mention if the Broncos would consider trading for Romo.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports Latavius Murray is expected to test the open market.

Per Anderson, "the door will remain open" for a return to Oakland, but the Raiders will let the market set Latavius' price. Murray lost work to rookies DeAndre Washington and Jalen Richard last year, and the Raiders have spent the last two offseasons trying to replace him. If Murray leaves, Oakland will likely add a power back in the draft. Oklahoma's Samaje Perine would fit.

Impending free agent S Matt Elam was arrested on drug charges Sunday in Miami.

Elam was pulled over for driving recklessly. When police searched his vehicle, they discovered 126 grams of marijuana and three grams of oxycodone. He was booked at 3:45 a.m. on charges of possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis, possession of cannabis with the intent to sell or deliver, and possession of a controlled substance. Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun believes the charges are serious enough to threaten Elam's career.

According to the Florida Times Union, Julius Thomas' poor blocking was one reason the Jaguars decided to move on.

One source called Thomas' blocking "non-existent" and said his presence was a "giveaway" to the defense that the Jaguars were passing or running to the other side of the field. Signed by the Jags to a five-year, $46 million contract, Thomas only played about 25-32 snaps a game while often battling injuries. After coaching him in Denver, Dolphins HC Adam Gase should have a better feel for Thomas' strengths and weaknesses than Gus Bradley's staff did.
