Giants activated DT Markus Kuhn (knee) from the reserve/PUP list.

He'll take the roster spot of reserve DT Shaun Rogers, who was placed on injured reserve Thursday. Kuhn appeared in 10 games as a seventh-round rookie last season before tearing his ACL.

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 Dolphins are confident they'll sign free agent Ndamukong Suh, according to the Miami Herald.

Suh is expected to command a contract in the neighborhood of six years and $102 million with over $30 million guaranteed. That would make Suh the richest defensive player of all-time, ahead of J.J. Watt. Miami recently released Brian Hartline and Cortland Finnegan to make room for a top-flight free agent. Mike Wallace could be next on the chopping block if the purge continues. The Raiders and Colts have also been linked to Suh, who can begin negotiating with teams Saturday.

Free agent CB Byron Maxwell said he'd "definitely" consider signing with the Eagles.

Philadelphia seems like the overwhelming favorites for Maxwell. They play a ton of Cover 3, single-high safety, leaving their corners in man coverage on the outside, and that's the exact scheme Maxwell has said he wants to play in after doing so in Seattle. The Eagles are sitting on a pile of cash after ridding their roster of veterans this past week. Maxwell is expected to command $10 million per year.

NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini reports free agent Brian Orakpo "will not be back" with the Redskins next season.

It's a tough decision, but ultimately the right one. Orakpo seems to get hurt every year and the Redskins drafted his potential successor in Trent Murphy. Orakpo has already been connected to a number of teams, so the Redskins wouldn't be able to get him back at a discount. Assuming his tenure in Washington is over, Orakpo will finish his Redskins career with 40 sacks across 71 appearances.

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.

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.
