Coach Pete Carroll plans to move defensive end Bruce Irvin to outside linebacker, where he'll compete with Malcolm Smith for the starting strong-side job.

K.J. Wright is now the weak-side linebacker. Irvin will still see looks at defensive end in nickel pass-rushing situations, but isn't big enough to earn a full-time role on the line. Carroll brought up Irvin's versatility as being extremely valuable to the team, and added "We're a 4-3 personnel system that plays 3-4 looks," indicating Irvin will get plenty of pass-rush opportunities at linebacker. Expect Irvin to win the job from Smith after serving his four-game suspension for PEDs.

Bucs released Doug Martin.

This move, which saves Tampa Bay $6.75 million against the cap, was fully expected following two seasons marred by injury, suspension, and ineffectiveness. Martin was an All-Pro as recently as 2015, however, and just turned 29 in January. He would be a good get for running-back needy teams on a one-year, incentive-laden deal. For the Bucs, Peyton Barber played reasonably well down the stretch last season, but they will be on the lookout for help this offseason, especially with Charles Sims headed to free agency.

Free agent CB Vontae Davis is meeting with the 49ers Tuesday.

He met with the Bills and Browns last week. Davis struggled while dealing with injuries each of the last two seasons, but he is only 30 (in May) and was a Pro Bowler in 2015. He would be a quality flier for the 49ers.

The New York Post's Brian Costello was told the Jets could offer Kirk Cousins $60 million in the first year of his contract.

New York is reportedly "willing to pay whatever it takes" to land Cousins, so this does not come as a surprise. It also makes some sense for the Jets, who have the cap space to both front-load the contract and make moves to improve the rest of the roster. The Broncos, Vikings, and Cardinals are also teams to watch in the Cousins sweepstakes.

The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person doesn't expect the Panthers to use the franchise tag on free agent LG Andrew Norwell.

Carolina has a ton of money tied up in its offensive line with LT Matt Kalil, C Ryan Kalil, and RG Trai Turner. Tagging Norwell would leave the Panthers on the hook for a guaranteed $14.3 million-ish, money they'd likely prefer to use elsewhere. Norwell, 26, is one of the top overall free agents available.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson says it "would not be remotely surprising" if the Dolphins showed interest in C.J. Anderson should he be released by the Broncos.

The Dolphins signed Anderson to a four-year, $18 million deal as a restricted free agent in 2016, but the contract was matched by Denver. There is now speculation the Broncos will release Anderson, freeing up nearly $5 million to use in Denver's Kirk Cousins pursuit. Anderson has a Dolphins confidante in ex-Broncos OC Adam Gase and would form a committee with Kenyan Drake in Miami.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora "continues to hear" that LCB Marcus Peters "may not be long" for Kansas City.

La Canfora is not the first to mention a potential Peters trade, and he expects that chatter to "intensify" at the NFL Combine. The Chiefs were left in horrible salary-cap condition by fired GM John Dorsey and may not believe they can fit a forthcoming Peters extension onto their books. For 2018, however, Peters is signed for just $1.74 million. Ideally, the Chiefs would keep Peters for at least one more year, and perhaps revisit a trade next offseason.

The Charlotte Observer reports Julius Peppers is "leaning toward" returning for a 17th NFL season.

That's via a "source close to Peppers." Per the source, Peppers "doesn't want to commit to it yet." The Charlotte Observer believes that if Peppers does return, it will only be for the Panthers. Now 38, Peppers is recovering from surgery to repair a torn right labrum.

The Dallas Morning News' David Moore expects the Cowboys to place the franchise tag on DE DeMarcus Lawrence.

Moore says the "goal" is to reach a long-term deal, but it is unlikely that happens before the March 6 deadline to apply the tag. Using the tag will give Dallas more time to negotiate, but it also guarantees Lawrence around $17.5 million for 2018, a number which could make long-term negotiations tricky. Lawrence exploded for 14.5 sacks in his contract year.

ESPN's Tim McManus reports the Eagles will interview RBs coach Duce Staley and WRs coach Mike Groh for their vacant offensive coordinator job.

McManus adds the team does not currently plan to interview anyone else. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Eagles would not promote anyone to coordinator, but these interviews suggest otherwise. That said, the Eagles could also make Staley the run-game coordinator with Groh as the pass-game coordinator, avoiding the OC title. Even if someone is promoted, coach Doug Pederson will continue to run the offense.

ESPN's Mike DiRocco expects the Jaguars to tag Allen Robinson if the two sides cannot work out a deal.

Robinson has been angling for a long-term deal through the media, saying he is close to full health and his ACL injury is "not really an issue," but DiRocco believes the Jaguars are looking for a "one-year, incentive-laden deal." The tag is expensive and does not contain any incentives, but it would give Jacksonville a year to make sure Robinson is back to full health before they invest long-term guaranteed money. Robinson will arguably be the top receiver available if he is allowed to hit the open market.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets are "willing to pay whatever it takes" to land Kirk Cousins.

MMQB's Peter King "guesses" Cousins will end up in Denver, but the Jets are certainly going to make a strong run at him. Working against the Jets is Cousins' reported desire to play for a team "with a good defense" where "he can win," but New York can point to their surprising success last year as evidence they are headed in the right direction. The Jets are projected to have over $70 million in cap space and can easily create more.
