A source tells the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the Browns are "highly unlikely" to trade for Kirk Cousins.

New Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan reportedly "loves" Cousins and the Redskins backup wants a chance to start. But the Plain Dealer is calling a trade a "remote possibility," and NBC News4 is hearing from sources that the Browns believe Brian Hoyer is a better option. We agree. Prior to an ACL tear, Hoyer led the Browns to two wins, averaging 295.0 yards while throwing five touchdowns and three interceptions. He makes for a fine bridge to the franchise quarterback Cleveland needs to find in the draft.

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 with Washington, Paul had been drawing interest from Atlanta.

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 rid themselves of 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 feint 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 ACL tear and at 36, a return to form seems unlikely. Wayne was only 235 yards away from tying Marvin Harrison for the most receiving yards in team history. Given his age and recent injury struggles, Wayne will probably have to settle for a one-year deal if he decides to play next season.

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 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.
Mar 6 - 9:30 AM

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.
Mar 5 - 10:35 PM

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.
