Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer stated Wednesday that Zac Stacy is "not guaranteed" St. Louis' starting running back job.

Schotty said rookie Tre Mason "and others" are in the hunt. In late March, coach Jeff Fisher said he envisioned Stacy as "probably a 70-percent of the carries" back "over time," perhaps with "others" like Mason and Benny Cunningham mixing in. Fisher made that comment before drafting Mason with a top-75 pick, though. We still expect Stacy to handle the vast majority of carries for the run-heavy 2014 Rams. Mason could be a useful year-one change-of-pace back.

Bears signed RB Jacquizz Rodgers, formerly of the Falcons, to a one-year contract.

A four-year veteran, Rodgers owns a lousy 3.65 YPC for his career, but has caught 155 passes in 63 games. He also holds his own as a blocker despite standing in at just 5-foot-6, 196 pounds. Rodgers will start out as the No. 3 back behind Matt Forte and Ka'Deem Carey, but could carve out a role in the Bears' passing game. He's unlikely to hold any value in PPR leagues.

Ravens agreed to terms with QB Matt Schaub, formerly of the Raiders, on a one-year, $3 million contract.

It's low-end backup money. The rapidly-declining veteran was supposedly also drawing interest from the Cowboys, Titans and Falcons. Going on 34, Schaub was picked twice in 10 attempts for the Raiders last season, also taking three sacks. Arguably the league's worst starter in 2013, Schaub will be a shaky backup for Joe Flacco, but more experienced than Tyrod Taylor. Flacco hasn't missed a game in seven NFL seasons, a trend the Ravens are obviously counting on to continue for 2015.

XTRA 910 Arizona's Mike Jurecki reports free agent Rob Housler is drawing interest from the Bengals as well as the Ravens, and would like to make a decision "by the end of the week."

The Baltimore Sun reported Tuesday morning that there was "mutual interest" between Baltimore and the ex-Cardinal. Housler offers legit receiving upside, but was inconsistent in a Cardinals offense that doesn't feature tight ends catching passes.

Free agent RB Stevan Ridley (knee) is visiting the Dolphins Tuesday.

Ridley underwent surgery to repair his torn ACL and MCL on Nov. 18, depressing his free agency pricetag toward a one year "prove it" kind of contract. A bunch of teams would be wise to poke around, even ones that have plus starters like Lamar Miller. When healthy and holding onto the football, the 220-pound Ridley is both powerful and quick in a complementary early-down/goal-line role. The Cowboys and Vikings (if they move Adrian Peterson) are other possible landing spots.

Eagles agreed to terms with WR Miles Austin, formerly of the Browns, on a one-year, $2.3 million contract.

Another $700,000 is available through incentives. We'd have to think there's little guaranteed money here, but who knows what coach Chip Kelly sees in Austin. The soon-to-be 31-year-old posted a pedestrian 47-568-3 line across 15 games for Cleveland last season and has no separation skills after numerous hamstring injuries. He'll likely back up all three spots in Philly.

Packers agreed to terms with NT B.J. Raji on a one-year, $3.5 million contract.

Raji can earn "up to" $4 million. It's a good deal for the former No. 9 overall pick, who is arguably a minimum-salary player at this stage of his career. He can't stay healthy and hasn't put good play on tape in a while. Raji will compete for playing time behind returning starter NT Letroy Guion.

Eagles signed ILB DeMeco Ryans to a one-year extension through 2016.

The deal lowers Ryans' cap number and will pay him $7.5 million over the next two years. It includes $6.25 million guaranteed. Recovering from a torn Achilles' tendon, Ryans had been going into the final year of his contract. The two-year commitment by Philadelphia strongly suggests coach Chip Kelly is counting on Ryans to immediately return to form despite the severe 2014 injury. There is speculation the Eagles will now trade Mychal Kendricks, and start Ryans next to Kiko Alonso at inside linebacker.

Free agent ILB Rolando McClain is visiting the Patriots on Monday.

McClain finally has someone to leverage against the Cowboys, who have been lowballing him since the beginning of free agency. McClain was an integral part of Big D's defense in 2014, but dealt with concussions. He's also facing a four-game fine for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. Although McClain is surely pleased to have another club in the bidding, New England is not the kind of team that's going to break open the bank for a player with his question marks.

Browns GM Ray Farmer has been suspended four games without pay for illegal gameday texting.

After an investigation, the NFL has deemed that Farmer acted as a lone gunman when he attempted to text playcalls to the sidelines during 2014 games. So they haven't lost a draft pick, but have been fined $250,000 and will have to go at it without Farmer for the first month of 2015. He won't even be allowed in the team facility, although that may be a good thing. In Farmer's first year as an NFL GM, he blew two first-round draft picks (Johnny Manziel, Justin Gilbert), chased talented OC Kyle Shanahan away and assembled bottom-barrel offensive talent.

The NFL has taken away a 2016 fifth-round draft pick from the Falcons for piping in crowd noise to the Georgia Dome during games.

The Falcons pumped in noise through the speakers when the opposing offense was huddling up. "I think what we've done in 2013 and 2014 was wrong," owner Arthur Blank admitted in February. "Anything that affects the competitive balance and fairness on the field, we're opposed to." The NFL has also suspended team president Rich McKay from the league's competition committee and fined the franchise $350,000.

Packers agreed to terms with NT Letroy Guion on a one-year, $2.75 million contract.

27-year-old Guion was an 18-game starter for the Packers last season, posting career highs in tackles (62) and sacks (3.5) while holding up well against the run. He was arrested on Feb. 3 with 357 grams of marijuana, more than $190,000 in cash and a 9mm semi-automatic handgun in his truck, shutting down long-term extension talks. Guion somehow emerged with a mere fine and the Packers remained interested in a short-term deal despite the looming threat of league discipline.
