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.

Texans fired OC George Godsey.

It was officially announced as a "mutual parting of ways." Godsey spent the last two seasons as Houston's offensive coordinator, but Bill O'Brien retook playcalling duties in late September. Whether Godsey was a problem or not, the Texans felt the need to "part ways" with someone for their impotent offense, and it certainly wasn't going to be the guy (GM Rick Smith) who signed Brock Osweiler. The Texans are back to the drawing board at quarterback for 2017.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that he's "not sure" if Jordy Nelson (ribs) will be able to practice by Wednesday.

McCarthy did say Nelson "worked out" on Monday as he attempts to stay in shape while sitting with fractured ribs. We'd consider Nelson a long shot to face the Falcons at this stage of the week, but Nelson could try to gut it out if he feels well by the weekend. The Packers head to the Georgia Dome on Sunday.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports there's a "good chance" Chip Kelly is named the Jaguars' offensive coordinator.

Per Rapsheet, Kelly went into his interview expecting an offer, and has some "assistant hires ready." Kelly has been adamant he wants to remain in the NFL rather than turn tail and head back to college. Serving as a coordinator would be the best way to rehabilitate his brand at this point. He could be an awkward fit with fellow offensive mind Doug Marrone, who fancies himself a Bill Parcells-type. Kelly would have many more pieces to work with than he did in San Francisco.

The Houston Chronicle reports J.J. Watt (back surgery) is "ahead of schedule."

Per reporter Aaron Wilson, there's "hope" Watt will do "some" work during OTAs. Noticeably thinner on the sideline during the playoffs, Watt had to shed weight to lessen the load on his surgically-repaired back. He's now in the early stages of bulking back up. Returning from back surgery — this is Watt's second — is rarely straightforward, but he's expected to be ready well ahead of Week 1.

Speaking at Monday's season-ending presser, Chiefs coach Andy Reid committed to Alex Smith as his 2017 quarterback.

"Do I still think we can win with Alex?," Reid asked rhetorically. "Yeah, we were right there." It's not exactly the most ringing endorsement, but due $13.3 million between salary and bonuses, Smith will almost certainly be back under center for a fifth season in Kansas City. Smith has made no progress as a Chief, stubbornly minding the store while trying to avoid mistakes at all costs. With Smith going on 33, the Chiefs at the very least need a plan-of-succession in mind.

Coach Bill O'Brien said it's "too early to know" if Brock Osweiler will be the Texans' starting quarterback in 2017.

The Texans handed Osweiler $37 million guaranteed last offseason, and he proceeded to be a total disaster and the main reason the Texans were held back from bigger and better things. His $16 million salary for 2017 is guaranteed, and Osweiler carries a $19 million cap hit. He would count $25 million against the cap if the Texans release or trade him. There just don't seem to be many other avenues for the Texans to travel unless they make a run at Tony Romo.

Coach Dan Quinn said Julio Jones (toe) will be "ready to rock" for the NFC Championship game against the Packers.

Quinn did say Jones' reps will be managed this week. Jones re-injured his sprained toe in the Divisional Round win over the Seahawks, playing a season-low 58.3 percent of the snaps. But the Falcons have expressed zero concern about Jones' availability for next Sunday. Expect him to be limited in practice this week before playing next weekend.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the 49ers are "honing in on" Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan for their head-coaching vacancy.

With Josh McDaniels withdrawing his name from the search, it looks like Shanahan or bust for the Niners. Seahawks OL coach Tom Cable is the only other known candidate for the job. The 49ers have sat on their hands and dragged this search process out with the other five vacancies already filled. If they whiff on Shanahan, things could again be a total disaster in Santa Clara.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Patriots OC Josh McDaniels is bowing out of consideration for the 49ers' head-coaching vacancy.

According to La Canfora, McDaniels is taking his name out of consideration for "personal" reasons, and it's "not a reflection" on the 49ers. It's probably a little bit of both. With New England advancing this deep into the playoffs, the San Francisco job is the only one left open. McDaniels is better off riding it out another year with Tom Brady and Co. and seeing what next offseason brings. Kyle Shanahan and Tom Cable are the other two known candidates linked to the 49ers.

Alex Smith completed 20-of-34 passes for 172 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Chiefs' 18-16, Divisional Round loss to the Steelers on Sunday.

The Chiefs scored the only two touchdowns of this game, but it still wasn't enough to overcome Steelers K Chris Boswell's six field goals. Smith and the Chiefs got the scoring started with a five-yard touchdown pass to Albert Wilson out of the wishbone formation on a play-action boot to the left. Predictably, Kansas City's offense went into a shell after the score and couldn't do much of anything before laboring for a fourth-quarter touchdown to bring the score to 18-16. On the ensuing two-point conversion, Smith hit Demetrius Harris to tie the game, but it was called back on a hold by LT Eric Fisher. They failed on the next attempt from the 12-yard line. Smith threw for a career-high 3,502 yards in 2016, but only threw 15 touchdowns to eight picks. He's not -- and never will be -- a fantasy asset.

Antonio Brown caught 6-of-11 targets for 108 yards in the Steelers' Divisional Round win over the Chiefs on Sunday.

Brown went into the half with a 5-101 line on nine targets. His lone second-half catch came on the Steelers' final pass of the game, converting a third-and-short late in the fourth quarter that allowed the Steelers to drain the clock and take home the two-point win. Brown's longest catch was a total mismatch with OLB Justin Houston trying to cover him one-on-one deep down the left sideline. Brown easily won the matchup and turned it into a 52-yard gain. Brown later had a potential 17-yard touchdown ripped out of his grasps in the end zone when Marcus Peters made a great play to strip it. Brown and the Steelers head to Foxboro next weekend for the AFC Championship game. Brown went 7-106-0 against the Patriots in Week 7.
