Dolphins fired offensive coordinator Mike Sherman.

Sherman's 2013 offense finished 27th in yards and 26th in points despite dropping massive gobs of money on Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson, Dustin Keller, Tyson Clabo, and more. Miami also allowed a league-high 58 sacks of second-year franchise quarterback Ryan Tannehill, whom the club will now pray was not shell shocked by a hit-riddled season. For now, at least, it appears GM Jeff Ireland and coach Joe Philbin are safe, with Sherman being the Fall Guy. The Dolphins would do well to find a more imaginative playcaller willing to commit to the run game as a critical element on offense.

Appearing on Sirius NFL Radio, ESPN's Chris Mortensen said he believes there's an "80 percent" chance Adrian Peterson remains with the Vikings.

Mort did call Arizona an "interesting" potential landing spot. Based on a combination of recent national-media reports, it sounds like Peterson could end up with the Cardinals if Vikings GM Rick Spielman lowers his asking price to a mid to late second-round pick. If Spielman stays the course and demands a first-rounder in Peterson negotiations, A.D. will likely be staying in Minnesota.

The Tennessean does not expect the Titans to select USC DT Leonard Williams at No. 2 overall.

Beat reporter Jim Wyatt says the Titans would pass on a player many consider the draft's top prospect because they have "bigger needs." That's certainly true, although drafting for need is what GMs who are trying to save their job do. Wyatt added that if the Titans don't trade out of the No. 2 hole and don't take Marcus Mariota, he thinks they'll take Alabama WR Amari Cooper.

Antonio Brown reported to the Steelers facility Monday and is participating in voluntary workouts.

Brown didn't show up as the offseason program opened last week, sparking reports that he wants a new contract and was mulling a holdout. If that were true, Brown has apparently reconsidered digging his heels in. He likely knew he had little leverage as he's just three years into a six-year, $43 million deal. The Steelers have a staunch history of not renegotiating deals with more than one year left, even for players like Brown that led the NFL in both receptions and receiving yards last year. Agent Drew Rosenhaus will continue to try to get his client more money, but it's simply not going to happen.

The Redskins will pick up Robert Griffin III's $16.1 million 2016 option.

It's not a huge deal as the option is only guaranteed for injury. If the Redskins want to cut ties with Griffin after this season and avoid paying him that $16M, they can do so (as long as he's not hurt). RG3's career was always going to be at a crossroads this season regardless of the option, as he must prove he can sustain health and be a fundamentally sound NFL quarterback in Year 4. His own coach, Jay Gruden, appeared very skeptical of that last year.

Citing six "high-level NFL sources," Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports the Cowboys and Cardinals are not willing to pay the price the Vikings have demanded to trade Adrian Peterson.

"Dallas has not even spoken to Minnesota regarding Peterson," Robinson writes, while Arizona is unwilling to surrender its first-round pick. Peterson-to-the-Cardinals reportedly could be a done deal were Vikings GM Rick Spielman willing to trade A.P. for a mid-to-late second-round pick, but that is currently not happening. Robinson speculates that the Buccaneers and Jaguars are sleepers to acquire Peterson, perhaps in exchange for a top-40 pick. According to Robinson, Spielman's "feet are in cement," he "wants Peterson in a Vikings uniform," and "it's going to take a sledgehammer to remove him from that spot."

"Multiple sources" tell the Miami Herald that the Dolphins "covet" Georgia RB Todd Gurley, and "would love" for Gurley to fall to them at No. 14.

No. 14 would be considered a "fall" for Gurley, who is now seen as a probable top-ten pick. Many NFL evaluators view Gurley as one of the best all-around players in an otherwise weak 2015 draft class. The Herald spoke to Miami Heat team physician Harlan Selesnick, who said the risk of an ACL re-tear is just two percent for pro athletes. "The success rate in terms of stability is really quite good," Selesnick stated. "You don’t see a lot of guys having a repeat ACL surgery. You can usually feel comfortable taking one of those players."

ESPN's Mark Dominik is "certain" Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota will go 1-2 in this week's NFL draft.

Dominik also believes UCLA's Brett Hundley "should" go in the first round, but that's just his opinion. Dominik was an NFL general manager as recently as the 2013 season and likely still has close ties to many personnel people around the league. It would be a shock if Winston and Mariota weren't selected at Nos. 1 and 2 overall, although not necessarily in that order.

According to the Tampa Tribune, the Buccaneers have met or spoken with "upwards of 75 people" with ties to Florida State QB Jameis Winston throughout the draft process.

They want to know if Winston's off-field transgressions were "the work of a bad person or simply an immature one." The Bucs conducted a similar investigation with Justin Blackmon a few years back, staking him out at a local bar to see how many times he would attend throughout the week. Buccaneers officials spoke with the Tallahassee State Attorney's Office about an FSU student who received "counseling services" after a sexual encounter with Winston. According to the Attorney's Office, the student did not press charges and "doesn't even consider herself a victim." We'll know Thursday if Winston's baggage is too much for the Buccaneers to handle.

NBC's Alex Flanagan tweeted Saturday that she's been talking to "more and more people" who believe rumors of Philip Rivers being traded by the Chargers "have legitimate legs."

As Flanagan noted, the Titans "need Rivers," in order for beleaguered GM Ruston Webster and coach Ken Whisenhunt to save their jobs. The Chargers would be a good fit for Marcus Mariota, going to a coach in Mike McCoy who's repeatedly shown the ability to craft his offense to maximize his quarterback's strengths. Any deal of Rivers to Tennessee would likely require a long-term agreement between the team and Rivers. The Titans would have to have that assurance from Rivers' camp before executing the trade. Rivers is entering the final year of his contract.

"Several executives" told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel they've either removed Boise State RB Jay Ajayi from their draft boards or "backed way off" because of how their medical staffs evaluated Ajayi's knee.

Ajayi tore his ACL in 2011, and it's feared he may need microfracture surgery down the line. "I just don't know if he'll hold up physically," one scout said. "He's had a lot of carries." Since tearing the ACL, of course, Ajayi dominated college football and showed big-time NFL-caliber tools. The concern continues to be with Ajayi's longevity, at a position where longevity isn't the expectation.

NJ.com's Mark Eckel passes along a "rumor making its rounds in NFL personnel meetings" of the Eagles trading Sam Bradford to the Browns for the No. 19 overall pick in the draft.

The Browns already offered No. 19 to the Rams for Bradford, prior to his trade to Philadelphia. St. Louis didn't accept because it wanted a quarterback, and wound up acquiring Nick Foles. The Browns are "still said to have interest" in Bradford. Per Eckel, the rumor has the Eagles then sending Nos. 19 and 20 -- plus Mychal Kendricks and Fletcher Cox -- to the Titans in exchange for No. 2 overall, where Philly would select Marcus Mariota. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Friday that Bradford currently believes the Eagles may be planning to trade him.
