The Bucs have decided against exercising DE Adrian Clayborn's fifth-year option for 2015.

It means Clayborn is entering a contract year in 2014. The fifth-year club option would've set up Clayborn for a non-guaranteed $6.969 million in 2015, but he was not drafted by the Buccaneers' current front office, and is a questionable scheme fit for Leslie Frazier's new Tampa 2. Clayborn registered 7.5 sacks in a promising 2011 rookie year, but has just 5.5 across 19 games since.

Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-5 targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' NFC title game win over the Vikings.

With Xavier Rhodes temporarily sidelined by a toe injury, Jeffery whipped 39-year-old CB Terence Newman for a 53-yard touchdown bomb late in the second quarter, giving the Eagles a 21-7 lead. Jeffery scored again early in the fourth, skying over Trae Waynes when Minnesota’s zone coverage forced Rhodes away from Alshon. In a picture-perfect game by Nick Foles, Jeffery was his most-perfect target recipient. Expect Jeffery to draw primary coverage from Stephon Gilmore in the Super Bowl.

Nick Foles completed 26-of-33 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' shocking, 38-7 blowout win over the Vikings in Sunday's NFC Championship game.

Foles went just 2-of-15 on throws attempted 20-plus yards downfield this season. He completed four 20-plus-yard throws in Sunday’s game alone, beginning with a 53-yard touchdown to a wide-open Alshon Jeffery in the second quarter and capped by a 41-yard flea-flicker score to Torrey Smith in the third frame. Foles’ third TD went to Jeffery in the red zone early in the fourth. It was a stunning air-raid performance against the NFC’s premier pass defense. The Eagles will likely need something similar from Foles – in addition to defensive dominance – in order to upset the Patriots in the Super Bowl. New England is expected to open as a five- to six-point favorite.

Tom Brady completed 26-of-38 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns in the Patriots' 24-20, AFC Championship Game win over the Jaguars.

Beset by a throwing hand injury, ongoing palace intrigue in New England, and the first half loss of Rob Gronkowski to a concussion, Brady and the Pats survived an early onslaught from the Jags' elite defense to rally from a 14-3 deficit and reach the eighth Super Bowl of the Bill Belichick era. Although occasionally skittish in the pocket, Brady mostly stood tall after the break, finding Danny Amendola for the game-winning touchdown with a beautiful throw to the back of the end zone with 2:48 remaining. Neither his hand nor age were an issue. Whoever New England faces in Super Bowl LII will present a defensive challenge just one step down from the Jags' league-best unit.

Rob Gronkowski (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of the AFC Championship Game.

The second documented concussion of Gronk's pro career could not have come at a worse time for the Patriots. Gronk had just one catch for 21 yards before going down late in the first half.

Rex Burkhead (knee) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

Considering this is his first game action since Week 15 and Dion Lewis has established himself as the clear lead back during that time, it is difficult to predict how much action Burkhead will see in this game. He was dominating red-zone snaps before his injury, however, and it would not be surprising to see him nab a touchdown or two in this matchup. That makes him worth a look in DFS.

Tom Brady (hand) is active for the AFC Championship Game.

There was never much doubt he would play, but it is now official. Brady reportedly threw the ball "incredibly well" during Friday's practice, and he was not wearing a glove on his throwing hand during pre-game warmups. Ultimately, Jacksonville's ability to get pressure, especially up the middle, will play a much larger role in Brady's success than this injury.

Former Steelers OC Todd Haley interviewed for the Browns' offensive coordinator job.

The two sides are in "serious talks," according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. The Steelers decided not to renew Haley's contract after the season, possibly due to tension with Ben Roethlisberger. Hue Jackson served as both head coach and offensive coordinator in 2017, which predictably backfired as the Browns endured one of the worst seasons in NFL history. The Browns have also interviewed Texans QBs coach Sean Ryan and former Giants coach Ben McAdoo for their offensive coordinator opening.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cardinals are looking to schedule a second interview with Patriots LBs coach Brian Flores for their head-coaching vacancy.

Falcons specials teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, Cardinals DC James Bettcher and Panthers DC Steve Wilks are also being considered for the head job in Arizona. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Sunday morning that Flores is the current favorite to replace Matt Patricia as New England's defensive coordinator. If Flores does join the Cardinals, he's expected to bring along former Lions coach Jim Caldwell as his offensive coordinator.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports ex-Raiders coach Jack Del Rio is a "leading candidate" for the Giants' defensive coordinator job.

It's the first we've heard of Del Rio since the Raiders fired him on New Year's Eve. Presumed head coach Pat Shurmur (he'll be officially introduced once the Vikings wrap up their season) has been targeting Del Rio as his defensive coordinator and the interest appears to be mutual. The Raiders still owe Del Rio $6 million annually over the next three seasons, so whatever he earns from the Giants, if hired, will offset against his contract with Oakland. If Del Rio accepts the position, it will put Steve Spagnuolo out of a job.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Patriots LBs coach Brian Flores is the favorite to replace Matt Patricia as the team's defensive coordinator.

Flores is a finalist for the head coaching vacancy in Arizona, but if he doesn't get the job, he'll be the front-runner to replace Patricia, who will be announced as the Lions' head coach once the Patriots' season is over. The former Boston College linebacker has been with the Patriots since 2004, beginning as a scout before moving into the coaching ranks in 2008. Saints secondary coach Aaron Glenn, who played for Bill Belichick when he served as the Jets' DC in the late 90s, is also a candidate for New England's defensive coordinator opening.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, there is a "possibility" the Vikings will use the franchise tag on Case Keenum.

Minnesota has not negotiated "at all" with Keenum, which has surprisingly worked to his benefit as the quarterback's stock continues to rise. The Vikings haven't assigned the franchise tag since 2011, but if they decide to break that trend by using it on Keenum, the 29-year-old would earn a salary in the range of $23.6 million for 2018. That would be an enormous raise from Keenum's current $2 million salary. Even if it's not via the franchise tag, Rapoport expects Keenum to be back with the Vikings next season.
