The Philadelphia Daily News reports impending free agent Michael Vick "very badly" wants to start in 2014.

Reporter Les Bowen expects Vick to move on from the Eagles. Vick will undoubtedly draw interest as a "bridge" starter from quarterback-needy teams, but won't have much room for error wherever he ends up. It's possible he won't find the market he's looking for, and returns to Philadelphia as Nick Foles' backup. Vick turns 34 in June.

Seahawks waived DE Dwight Freeney.

Signed in late October, the 16-year veteran lasted four games in Seattle. Freeney tallied three sacks as a situational pass rusher, so it's a bit surprising he's being cut loose. 2017 is the longtime Colt's age-37 season. It's possible he gets a look elsewhere. Despite being a vested veteran, Freeney must go through waivers since it's after the trade deadline.

Patriots waived DE Cassius Marsh.

DE Eric Lee was signed in a corresponding roster move. Acquired from the Seahawks before Week 1, Marsh played 266 snaps over nine games, making one start. He tallied one sack. The No. 108 overall pick of the 2014 draft by the Seahawks, Marsh turned 25 in July.

Raiders fired DC Ken Norton Jr.

In many ways, Norton is the scapegoat for an underachieving team, but his firing is also completely justifiable. The Raiders have a league-low six takeaways, including an historic zero interceptions. No team has ever gone this late in the year without picking off a pass. Despite having reigning Defensive Player of the Year Khalil Mack up front, the Raiders are tied with the Giants for the fewest sacks (14). Opposing passers are posting a 113.3 QB rating when they face the Raiders. Something had to change. Ex-Chargers DC John Pagano is taking over.

Texans claimed RB Andre Ellington off waivers from the Cardinals.

The Texans needed help at running back after D'Onta Foreman (Achilles') was lost for the season. Averaging a healthy nine yards on 33 receptions, it remains surprising that Ellington was cut loose by the Cardinals. He should see immediate playing time for the Texans, and will help keep plodder Alfred Blue off the field behind Lamar Miller. What Ellington is unlikely to do is provide legitimate PPR value in the Texans' Tom Savage-led offense.

Falcons waived CB Jalen Collins.

Collins was set to be activated from a 10-game PED ban, his second steroid suspension. Instead, the Falcons are moving on from the No. 42 overall pick of the 2015 draft. Still only 24, Collins played well down the stretch in 2016. Collins may clear waivers so teams don't have to pick up his contract, but he will undoubtedly get another chance.

Redskins placed LG Shawn Lauvao on injured reserve with a neck injury, ending his season.

Lauvao is 1-of-4 Redskins to hit injured reserve on Tuesday, including fellow starting lineman C Spencer Long. Oft injured, this is the second season in three Lauvao will finish on I.R.. At least according to Pro Football Focus, he was performing as one of the worst interior linemen in the league before going down. Lauvao is headed for free agency. Ty Nsekhe finished Week 11 in Lauvao's place, and will presumably replace him going forward.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Broncos plan to start Paxton Lynch against the Raiders in Week 12.

Things have been trending this way since Sunday's (latest) loss. Official word is expected to come Wednesday. Lynch showed very little in two rookie starts, but the Broncos have nothing to lose as they play out the string of a lost season. They need to find out if their 2016 first-rounder has anything resembling a future under center. Lynch couldn't ask for a softer opponent than a Raiders team generating essentially zero pressure or turnovers.

Sterling Shepard (migraines) was officially "DNP" in Tuesday's practice.

It's a downgrade from Monday's limited session. Coach Ben McAdoo said Shepard is "not feeling well," and that the team is trying to determine the source of his migraines. Shepard is now on the wrong side of questionable for Thursday night's game against the Redskins, though a Wednesday return would have him on track to suit up.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Mike Davis (groin) is "unlikely" to play Week 12 against the 49ers.

It is a tough break for a player who seemed to be taking advantage of his opportunity on Monday night, especially considering the Davis' former team, the 49ers, are next up on the schedule. With Davis out, Thomas Rawls will jump back into the rotation, but this is a situation to avoid outside of J.D. McKissic in PPR formats.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: While Davis was sidelined Monday, McKissic worked as the primary back and finished with 12 touches while Eddie Lacy saw three. Even if Rawls is active in Week 12, it could be McKissic's backfield against the 49ers. He couldn't have a much better spot; the 49ers are giving up the most PPR points per game to RBs while allowing the most receiving yards and 2nd-most receiving touchdowns to the position. At just $3.7k on DraftKings, McKissic looks like a solid value but it’ll be worth monitoring the situation this week before pulling the trigger.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Case Keenum will start Thursday against the Lions.

It was the only decision Zimmer could make after Keenum played well in a big win over the Rams on Sunday. The matchup with the Lions is not great, but Keenum has good enough weapons and has flashed a high enough ceiling to keep him in the streaming conversation.

Redskins placed Terrelle Pryor (ankle), Chris Thompson (leg), and C Spencer Long (quad) on injured reserve.

Pryor underwent ankle surgery on Monday which will bring his first and almost certainly only season in Washington to a close. Pryor finishes the year with just 20 catches for 240 yards and a touchdown. He will likely have to settle for prove-it type deals again once he hits free agency.
