Dolphins second-year CB Jamar Taylor told the Idaho Statesman that he considered quitting football during his disappointing rookie season.

Last year's 54th overall pick, Taylor was part of a Jeff Ireland draft class that provided the team with next to nothing in 2013. Taylor only got on the field for 45 defensive snaps. "It was to the point last year I thought I was done playing football," he said. "I didn’t want to play anymore. I was out of it. Thank God for my girlfriend, my family, my pastors and God — because I made it through and kept working. I’m really looking forward to this year."

According to ESPN Falcons reporter Vaughn McClure, the 49ers are a "strong possibility" to sign impending free agent Jacob Tamme.

The 31-year-old said he loves being a Falcon but could opt to join his former OC Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. The 49ers did just sign Vance McDonald to a five-year extension, though it wouldn't hurt to bring in a veteran to implement Shanahan's new offense. Third-round rookie Austin Hooper would be slated for a bigger role if Tamme winds up leaving Atlanta this offseason.

Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com believes Giovani Bernard (ACL) will avoid the PUP list to start next season.

Bernard tore his ACL late last year but seems to be on schedule with his recovery. At worst, Hobson thinks Bernard could miss one or two games to start the season. The Bengals still have Jeremy Hill, but they'll need more depth with Bernard on the mend and backups Rex Burkhead and Cedric Peerman both headed for free agency. Running back could be a position the Bengals address in the draft.

Dolphins signed DE Cameron Wake to a two-year, $19 million extension.

The deal includes $11 million guaranteed. The Dolphins are rewarding Wake after he posted 11.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, and 66 total QB pressures in another All Pro season. He didn't show any signs of slowing down coming off a torn Achilles, leading all 4-3 ends in pass-rushing productivity at PFF despite opening the year in a situational role. Miami didn't need to re-sign Wake but would have risked losing him in a walk year. The extension locks Wake up through 2018, his age-37 season.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said he is not looking for a "short-term fix" at quarterback.

"You want to make a commitment to somebody," Shanahan said. "In order to do that, you better make sure you’re on the same page with everyone else and you put the time in, you talk to people who’ve been with these guys." These comments would seem to shoot down reports of Matt Schaub and Brian Hoyer being options, but those guys will be nothing but bridge quarterbacks at best. The 49ers could commit to an early-round pick like UNC's Mitch Trubisky and still have him compete with a veteran in camp. With little chance of winning right now, that might even be the best option.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert indicated Ladarius Green (concussion) will be back with the team in 2017.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette wrote the same earlier this week. It makes sense for the Steelers to take a shot on Green, who was a difference-maker when on the field and would free up under $2.75 million of cap space if released. That said, he only managed six games his first year in Pittsburgh and still has not been cleared from a Week 15 concussion. Like last year, it will not be surprising if he spends most of the offseason on the sidelines.

In addition to Matt Schaub, the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows names Brian Hoyer as a free agent quarterback the 49ers might pursue.

Schaub has been previously speculated as a fit in San Francisco after spending the last two years with Kyle Shanahan in Atlanta. Hoyer played for Shanahan in Cleveland, and has been far more effective in recent years than Schaub. Barring an unlikely-if-intriguing match with Kirk Cousins, the 49ers will be scraping the bottom of the barrel for veteran quarterback options. Barrows didn't rule out the Niners signing both Hoyer and Schaub in free agency.

WBRC FOX6 reports free agent Trent Richardson was arrested for domestic violence Thursday night in Hoover, Alabama.

A female victim was treated for scratches and bruises. The incident reportedly began at a Wal-Mart and continued until police were called to a Hyatt hotel, where Richardson was taken into custody. He's been charged with third-degree domestic violence and will appear before a judge on Friday. Richardson is being held on $1,000 bond. The former third overall pick hasn't played an NFL snap since 2014.

Impending free agent Michael Floyd pled guilty to one count of extreme DUI Thursday in Scottsdale City Court.

The other six counts were dismissed. Floyd will serve a 120-day jail sentence, including 24 days in county jail and 96 days of home detention. He also must complete 30 hours of community service and pay a $5,115.99 fine. It's not a worst case scenario for Floyd, but it's pretty close. There was no way he was going to avoid jail time after blowing a .217. Coming off a down year, Floyd's free agent prospects aren't looking good.

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Jets are able to void Darrelle Revis' deal if he's suspended or fined for conduct detrimental to the team or for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

The Jets were already unlikely to bring Revis back at his $13 million salary, and his arrest makes it even easier to move on. If Revis is suspended or fined, the Jets can recoup his entire salary including the $6 million he was guaranteed for 2017. The Jets have until March 11 to decide his fate. Revis is due a $2 million roster bonus on that date.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports "there's optimism" the Jaguars will be able to acquire LT Branden Albert.

Trades can't be announced until the start of the new league year, March 9. But teams can obviously talk between now and then and agree to compensation and the parameters of a deal. Per Garafolo, Jacksonville is the "primary destination" for Albert, confirming a report from the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. Salguero suggested an Albert-for-Julius Thomas swap. That's one option where each team can rid itself of an overpaid veteran who doesn't fit in his current city.

ESPN's Jason Reid reports "former Redskins officials who know Kirk Cousins" have said Cousins doesn't want to be in Washington and would prefer to be franchise-tagged rather than sign a long-term deal.

The sides have made what sounds like zero progress on a long-term deal, and Cousins may be fed up with the way Washington handled negotiations the past two years. The front office clearly didn't believe in Cousins last year, making him prove himself again on a one-year tag, and Cousins answered the bell with a big season. It's fair to wonder if the "former Redskins officials" Reid is referring to is someone from the old Shanahan regime, as then-OC Kyle Shanahan literally "stood on a table" for Cousins when they drafted him. Now the head coach in quarterback-less San Francisco, Shanahan remains enamored with Cousins, who has made it known the feeling is mutual. If Cousins is able to force his way out of D.C., a reunion in Santa Clara would be a good bet.
