Peyton Manning completed 28-of-34 passes for 327 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Eagles.

With the Broncos up 49-13 at the end of three quarters, Manning was rested. He certainly earned it once again. Picking apart the Eagles' miserable secondary at will, Manning went over 300 yards without throwing an interception for the fourth straight game. He's on pace for one of the most dominant seasons in NFL history: 468-of-624 (75.0 percent) for 5,880 yards with 64 touchdowns and no interceptions. The Broncos will face four soft secondaries over the next four weeks (Dallas, Jacksonville, Washington). We wouldn't be surprised if Manning has 30 touchdowns at the season's halfway point. He's somehow at the peak of his powers at age 37.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Seahawks have reached a revised contract with Marshawn Lynch, ensuring Lynch stays with the team for 2015.

Lynch was rumored to be considering retirement for the second straight offseason. He's putting it off again. Although Lynch turns 29 next month, his 2014 performance showed zero signs of slippage. Lynch established a career high with 17 all-purpose touchdowns, and his 4.66 YPC average was the second best of his career. Lynch's breakdown risk will grow as he gets older, but otherwise there would be no reason to leave him out of 2015's top-five projected fantasy backs. Robert Turbin will return as Seattle's third-down back, while talented-but-enigmatic Christine Michael's Dynasty stock will continue to twist in the wind.

Jets will release WR Percy Harvin.

He was owed $10.5 million. The Jets will absorb Brandon Marshall's $7.7M instead and give Harvin his walking papers after he contributed 51 catches, 685 total yards, and two touchdowns to New York and Seattle last season. The draft pick the Jets owe the Seahawks also drops from a fourth-rounder to a sixth-rounder. Harvin turns 27 in May and should have an active free agent market despite his inability to stick with one team. Some team will surely take a flier on his game-breaking ability as a wideout-running back and kickoff return ace.

Jets re-signed ILB David Harris to a three-year, $21.5 million contract with $15 million guaranteed.

The deal locks up Harris through his age-33 season. Rex Ryan's Bills were poised for an aggressive run at Harris had he hit the open market, but the Jets were even more aggressive about keeping him, guaranteeing Harris nearly 70 percent of this contract. Harris is a three-down linebacker who struggles in coverage but is a highly productive tackler. He'll likely be new coach Todd Bowles' defensive signal caller at "Mike" 'backer.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins and Saints are ready to make a run at free agent RB Justin Forsett.

It makes sense for New Orleans to pursue a running back with Mark Ingram headed for free agency, but hearing Washington's name in Forsett discussions is a bit of a shock. Alfred Morris has been one of the most productive rushers in the league over the last three seasons. It's hard to envision Morris splitting carries with a 29-year-old journeyman. Despite all the interest Forsett is getting from other teams, there's still a good chance he winds up back in Baltimore.

Redskins re-signed TE Niles Paul to a three-year contract.

Paul has only missed four games in four seasons, which makes him a much safer bet than injury-prone starter Jordan Reed. Paul entered the league as a wideout, evident by the fact he hauled in 75 percent of his targets last season. If given a consistent role in the offense, he could be a fantasy sleeper. Prior to re-signing in D.C., Paul drew interest from Atlanta. We wouldn't be surprised if he became Washington's new starter over Reed.

Jets acquired WR Brandon Marshall from the Bears in exchange for a fifth-round pick.

This should effectively end Percy Harvin's time with the Jets. The Jets will take on Marshall's $7.7 million salary and delete Harvin's $10.5 million, sliding Marshall in opposite Eric Decker. Marshall gives the Jets a true No. 1 receiver, allowing Decker to settle back in as a complementary No. 2. It became increasingly clear over the past 24 hours that Marshall wasn't returning to Chicago. New Jets coach Todd Bowles was with Marshall in Miami from 2010-2011. Marshall's fantasy outlook takes a hit going from Marc Trestman's offense to Geno Smith, but new OC Chan Gailey has always had a creative mind. Marshall will be a fantasy WR2 in New York. Gailey runs a spread offense and Marshall should remain heavily targeted, even of those targets are likely to be less efficient with Gang Green.

The Colts announced they will not re-sign free agent Reggie Wayne.

NFL free agency is not for the faint of heart. Already this week we've seen the Pats kick Vince Wilfork to the curb, the Steelers practically beg Troy Polamalu to hang up his cleats and now Wayne, an Indianapolis lifer, is being shown the door. Wayne hasn't been the same player since his 2013 ACL tear and at 36, a return to form is beyond unlikely. Wayne was only 235 yards away from tying Marvin Harrison for the most receiving yards in Colts history. Given his age and recent injuries, Wayne will probably have to settle for a one-year minimum deal if he hopes to keep playing.

Marques Colston has agreed to a restructured contract to keep him with the Saints.

In all likelihood, we're looking at a straight pay cut from Colston. He was scheduled to earn $6.9 million this season and count $9.7 million against the cap. Coming off a poor season and about to turn 32, he had to do something with his contract if he wanted to stick around. It probably would have made more sense to outright cut Colston, but GM Mickey Loomis has been extremely loyal to veterans.

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs reports the Bears' new regime "appears intent on moving on from" Brandon Marshall.

The Bears are reportedly seeking a mid-round pick in exchange for Marshall, but Biggs believes the 31-year-old may be released if a deal isn't found before Marshall's salary becomes guaranteed next Thursday. Scheduled to earn $7.7 million this season in the second year of a four-year deal, that's not overbearing for a true No. 1 receiver like Marshall. He's coming off an injury-plagued season, but the ankles shouldn't be an issue in 2015. Expect Marshall to draw a ton of interest if he hits the free-agent market. We also wouldn't rule out a trade.

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.
