Buccaneers selected North Carolina State QB Mike Glennon with the No. 73 overall pick.

Glennon (6-foot-7 1/8, 225) took over the Wolfpack's offense following Russell Wilson's transfer and started two seasons, completing 60.3 percent of his throws with a 62:29 TD-to-INT ratio. Glennon is Rotoworld draft analyst Josh Norris' No. 4 QB in this class. Built like a young Joe Flacco with a powerful downfield arm, Glennon is an accurate deep passer. "Built like an oak tree," ESPN's Ron Jaworski has described. Glennon isn't a quality athlete, tends to hold onto the ball too long, and too often retreats rather than stepping up amid collapsing pockets. Sheer arm talent still makes him a quality developmental project -- and a great fit for Bucs OC Mike Sullivan's vertical scheme. Josh Freeman should consider himself on notice.

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.

49ers signed WR Jerome Simpson to a two-year contract.

It's a flier for a team with an uncertain situation at receiver. Now 29, Simpson served a three-game suspension for (again) violating the league's policy on substance abuse last season, and was cut loose by the Vikings before his ban was through. Simpson has always been a competent deep threat, but that won't be enough to guarantee a spot on the 49ers' 53-man roster.

NBC Washington reports free agent S Devin McCourty is "high" on the Eagles' wish list, and will also be pursued by the Giants.

The Eagles have spent the week clearing cap space, and have a hole at free safety with Nate Allen expected to walk in free agency. The Eagles and G-Men won't be McCourty's only pursuers, as he's far and away this year's top-available safety. Most signs point to the Patriots getting outbid for his services.

Maurice Jones-Drew is retiring from the NFL after nine seasons.

This is a tough one. MJD was a shell of his former self the past two seasons, but retires as one of the best runners of his generation, and as a fantasy football hall-of-famer. A diminutive 5-foot-7, 210 pounds, MJD ran with the power of a bull during his prime, and was one of the game's best pass-catching backs. Even despite his rough 2013-14 seasons, Jones-Drew heads into retirement the owner of a career 4.4 YPC. He scored 79 touchdowns across 126 games. Already a dabbler in the media, MJD should be sticking around on television and radio.

CSN Chicago reports the Bears will not re-sign free agent LB Lance Briggs.

Briggs has spent his entire 12-year career with the Bears. Briggs was willing to kick inside in new DC Vic Fangio's 3-4 scheme, but will instead head to the open market after playing 461 effective snaps last season. Briggs ended the year on injured reserve with a groin issue, but was still an able run stopper before going down. 2015 will be his age-35 season.

CSN Bay Area reports the 49ers are interested in re-signing free agent Michael Crabtree.

There have been mixed reports on Crabtree's San Francisco future, but CSN Bay Area is an extremely reliable source for all things 49ers. An anonymous AFC executive believes Crabtree is worth $4-$5 million annually. Crabtree will undoubtedly set his sights higher, but will likely be disappointed by his market. He hasn't been the same since tearing his Achilles' tendon, and aside from his late-season push in 2012, has been highly inconsistent throughout his career.

Profootballtalk reports the Dolphins remain the "team to watch" for free agent Ndamukong Suh.

Mike Florio's report comes roughly an hour after NFL Network reported that the Raiders are planning to host Suh for a visit. "Multiple league sources" have told Yahoo's Rand Getlin that the Dolphins and Colts are prepared to make the "strongest pushes" for Suh. The smoke connecting Suh to Miami grows thicker by the day.
