Coach Bruce Arians reiterated Andre Ellington is the Cardinals' "No. 1 back" and is expected to get "25-30 touches per game."

As Rotoworld All-Star turned NFL.com stud Chris Wesseling put it: "LOL." That would extrapolate to 400-480 touches over 16 games. Chiefs workhorse Jamaal Charles touched the ball 330 times last season. Arians has already expressed concerns with Ellington's ability to handle a big workload. If Ellington flirts with even 250 touches after handling 157 as a rookie, we'd consider it a win. He's on the RB2 radar, especially in PPR.

Colts re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a one-year contract.

Vinatieri had made it clear he wanted to return for his 23rd season, so it was really only a matter of time. The future Hall of Famer will enter the season just 57 points behind Morten Andersen on the All-Time points list, a gap he should be able to close if he stays healthy -- he notched 109 last season.

The Saints and free agent Drew Brees will meet at the NFL Combine to discuss a short-term deal.

This year's Combine will be held February 27 until March 5, so it's just under a week away. Per NFL Network's Rapoport, the expectation is Brees will not try to "break the bank" by looking to become the NFL's highest-paid quarterback, which he conceivably could do. Instead, Brees is expected to seek $20-25 million annually, less than Jimmy Garoppolo's $27.5 million per year from the 49ers.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has begun throwing weighted footballs and is reportedly "full steam ahead" for 2018.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport went as far as to say Luck's shoulder is "fine," and that the problems now involve "parts around Luck's shoulder," which to us just confirms Luck's throwing arm remains problematic. It's worth remembering that at this time last year the Colts were promising Luck would be ready for Week 1, and even activated him from the PUP list last September, giving off the impression he'd at last play at some point in the first six games. He wound up never playing a snap.

Broncos QB Chad Kelly has been working out with former Giants QB Phil Simms in advance of his first NFL season.

Last year's Mr. Irrelevant, Kelly missed his rookie season with wrist and knee injuries. He was declared fully health following the year. A favorite of Rookie Scouting Portfolio's Matt Waldman coming out of Ole Miss, Kelly showed NFL-caliber tools in college but struggled with off-field issues and health. As Trevor Siemian is limited and Paxton Lynch continues to look like a bust, Kelly is arguable the most talented quarterback on Denver's current roster. Kelly is the nephew and godson of Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly.

Beat writer Hays Carlyon doesn't expect the Jaguars to be able to re-sign impending free agent CB Aaron Colvin.

Outside CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye get all the love in Jacksonville, but Colvin is one of the best slot corners in the game and is/was a big part of the Jaguars' defense. Per Pro Football Focus, Colvin didn't allow a single touchdown in his coverage, and his 0.76 yards per snap in coverage was third-best among all slot corners. Colvin, 26, is one of the top corners set to hit the market.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen reports "the goal" is for Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, though he "could" be ready during the preseason.

Jeffery underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff on Wednesday and could be sidelined upwards of six months. Even if he returns at some point during the middle of the preseason, it sounds like Jeffery is going to miss all of OTAs, minicamp, and training camp. The good news, however, is that the Eagles are bringing back the exact same offensive system, and Jeffery doesn't have to learn anything new on the field. However, there's a chance he could be rusty and not completely in game shape by the time Week 1 rolls around. Overall, it's not a huge concern.

CBS Indianapolis' Mike Chappell doesn't expect the Colts to re-sign impending free agent Frank Gore.

Gore turns 35 in May and is unlikely to have much of a market. He's clearly on the 18th hole of his decorated career and is trying to hang on for a chance at a Super Bowl. That's not going to happen in Indianapolis right now. Chappell guesses Gore's hometown Dolphins could be interested in him. The Colts are fully expected to use a high pick -- possibly No. 3 overall -- on a running back.

Free agent CB Vontae Davis is visiting the Raiders on Wednesday.

Davis has visited the Bills, Browns, and 49ers in the last week and is now onto Oakland. The 30-year-old (in May) is eligible to sign whenever he pleases and should be making a decision in the next two or three weeks before free agency opens on March 14. The Raiders already released CB David Amerson earlier this month and likely will do the same with CB Sean Smith sooner than later.

Panthers hired interim GM Marty Hurney as general manager.

Hurney was the Panthers' GM from 2002-2012 before getting canned in favor of Dave Gettleman. The team reversed the move last offseason, firing Gettleman and tabbing Hurney as the interim GM for the 2017 season. All along, Hurney was expected to get the full-time gig, though he had to clear a harassment accusation from his ex-wife earlier this month. Carolina now needs to get an owner in place. Hedge fund manager David Tepper is considered the frontrunner.

NBC Indianapolis' Bob Kravitz reports the Colts and impending free agent K Adam Vinatieri are "closing in" on a one-year contract.

The 45-year-old said after the season he intended to keep playing, and it always made sense for both sides to hammer out a new deal. Vinatieri went 29-of-34 on field goals last season and was 11-of-13 from 40-plus yards out.

ESPN's Jeff Dickerson admits the Bears will "probably" release WR Markus Wheaton.

The Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs said the same thing last week, and it's actually amazing the beat writers aren't considering it a given that it will happen. Wheaton was an utter bust as a free-agent signing last offseason, catching three passes in 11 games. He was one of GM Ryan Pace's many whiffs in free agency. There's no way Pace can justify paying Wheaton $5 million in 2018.
