Drew Brees pointed to first-round pick Brandin Cooks as the primary replacement for Darren Sproles.

Brees described Cooks as an "explosive player, great speed, great talent, tremendous young man, loves to learn, loves the game of football." Sproles and Lance Moore are both gone, leaving a 90-reception void in Sean Payton's offense. "I think he can do a lot of things," Brees added of Cooks. "I think he can play outside receiver. I think I he can play inside in the slot. You can hand him reverses. You can throw him screens. He can return punts."

Titans president and CEO Steve Underwood said the organization is making progress towards satisfying the league's ownership requirements.

"We are confident that the next time we meet with the Commissioner," Underwood said, "he will be satisfied that [owner] Amy Adams Strunk has exactly what he said she needs — local operating control and full authority to represent the Titans in league decisions." The league requires one majority owner to represent the team both locally and in league matters. Strunk owns just a third of the organization with the rest of the shares spread out between the late Bud Adams' other daughter, Susie Adams Smith, and the heirs of his late son, Kenneth Adams III. Strunk has been operating as the controlling owner, but the league likely wants her to acquire a majority stake. Underwood's comments suggest she is close to acquiring the necessary shares.

Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt said the team will "do everything we can" to re-sign impending free agent FS Eric Berry.

"Eric is somebody that’s very important to the franchise," Hunt said. "Coach (Andy) Reid and his staff think highly of him. They appreciate the leader that he’s become, and obviously personally, he had the amazing year overcoming cancer." Berry confirmed the two sides have opened contract negotiations, but he said the situation is in his "agent's hands." The Chiefs have six defensive starters set to become free agents, but Berry is clearly the top priority.

Lions president Rod Wood is hoping to introduce Calvin Johnson to GM Bob Quinn sometime next week.

Wood said he's kept in touch with Johnson, exchanging texts as recently as Wednesday. Johnson hasn't officially announced his retirement yet and the Lions are hoping a sit-down with Quinn will help him change his mind. If Megatron does return in 2016, the Lions will likely have to re-work his contract.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said the team has reached out to Johnny Manziel "several times" without a response.

"We're not worried about Johnny Manziel the football player, we're worried about Johnny Manziel the person," said Haslam. Manziel's life is spiraling out of control. He was dropped by his agent on Friday and has reportedly refused to go to rehab despite his family's insistence. The most ominous quote came from Manziel's father, who told the Dallas Morning News, "I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday." Manziel is living in denial right now and needs to get help immediately.

Free agent RB Montee Ball was arrested Friday morning in Madison, Wisconsin following an altercation with his girlfriend.

Police were called to Ball's hotel around 3:40 a.m. after he allegedly pushed his girlfriend into a table. "The woman told police she had a dispute with her boyfriend," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain. "She said he put his hands on her, picked her up and threw her." The woman reportedly suffered a cut that required stitches. Ball was taken to Dane County Jail on a tentative charge of "substantial battery." Ball spent time on New England's practice squad late last year, but didn't see any game action and was rumored to be significantly out of shape. It's quite possible Ball's NFL career is over.

The Washington Post reports Peyton Manning hired private investigators to question the main source of Al Jazeera's documentary on performance-enhancing drug use.

The men apparently made a bit of a scene at Charlie Sly's parents' house. Manning's camp hasn't denied it. "Our thinking was it would be very helpful to find whoever it was who was making up lies about Peyton, and figure out why someone would fabricate information like this," spokesman Ari Fleischer said. Sly recanted his claims before the documentary even aired. He was clearly feeling some pressure from Manning's end.

Both Dallas and Fort Worth police have opted not to press charges against Johnny Manziel in his alleged domestic violence case.

ABC Dallas reported disturbing allegations from Manziel's ex-girlfriend on Thursday, but she refused to cooperate with police. Manziel is lucky with the law, but from an NFL perception standpoint, the damage has already been done. Charges or no charges, Manziel seems like a person in need of serious help. It's difficult to envision him being on someone's 53-man roster in 2016.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles and DeMarco Murray "are not in a good place."

Rapoport reports Murray has not asked to be traded or released, and the Eagles are not interested in cutting him at this point. Rapoport did say "it's fair to say Murray has eyes on greener pastures," however, and the Eagles are likely not happy with the amount of money they have invested at running back. Murray's contract makes cutting him almost impossible, but Philly may start shopping him in trades if the relationship is truly broken. Murray gained 702 yards on 193 carries (3.64 YPC) in the first season of a five-year, $40 million deal.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes it's "a good bet" Eddie Lacy played "at least" 25 pounds heavier than his playing weight of 234.

In other words, beat writer Rob Reischel thinks Lacy was near 260. Lacy's weigh-in at Alabama's 2013 Pro Day was 5-foot-11, 231. We've gone back to check Lacy's college tape as a comparison tool, and he looks considerably more fit and slender in Crimson Tide than Lacy appeared to be this past year. Wrote Reischel, "In fact, from the waist down, you couldn't tell the difference between Lacy and 301-pound center Corey Linsley."

Packers coach Mike McCarthy expects Jordy Nelson to "come back better than ever" after missing 2015 with a torn ACL.

Jordy's been running at full speed for nearly a month; his recovery appears to be going as smoothly as can be. "He's so far ahead with the rehab, he looks great," said McCarthy. "There's no reason to think he won't be good as new." Nelson turns 31 this May. He should have at least a few solid-if-not-great years left. Nelson is intriguing as a sneaky buy target in Dynasty leagues.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects the Packers to move on from free agent James Jones.

Beat writer Rob Reischel believes the Packers "figure to go with younger players" at wide receiver, parting with 32-year-old (in March) Jones. Although Jones was Aaron Rodgers' most reliable 2015 target, his separation skills were clearly lacking and Jones rarely makes plays after the catch. The Packers will welcome back Jordy Nelson (ACL) and Randall Cobb while Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis, Davante Adams, and Ty Montgomery vie for complementary roles.
