NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Andre Johnson has told the Texans "he wants to play for another team."

Rapoport added four teams have expressed interest in the veteran wide receiver, but Houston is resisting the move. It is unsurprising Johnson wants a trade. Entering his age-33 season, Johnson does not have time to wait through yet another rebuilding job. He is also unhappy the Texans refused a deal that would have paid him his $1 million workout bonus despite the fact that he missed several sessions. Even with the animosity, it is not a certainty Johnson leaves Houston. Rapoport believes the Texans could remedy the situation by paying Johnson his $1 million or promising him a roster spot in 2015. This has the look of a saga that could drag into camp.

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley expects impending free agent NT Brandon Williams to get a more lucrative contract offer elsewhere.

Williams is one of the top free agent interior defensive linemen set to hit the market. He'll turn 28 next month and could end up chasing the money with this possibly being his only shot to cash in during his career. Williams anchored the Ravens' No. 5-ranked DVOA run defense this season. He could be looking at a deal similar to what Damon Harrison got from the Giants.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky fully expects the team to release CB Sam Shields this offseason.

Shields went down in Week 1 with a concussion that ultimately landed him on injured reserve. Cornerback is arguably the Packers' biggest need, even though they're one of the final four teams standing heading into championship weekend, but Shields is unlikely to be a solution to the problem. He has one year left on his contract, and Green Bay can save $9 million by releasing Shields. He's still just 29, but it's fair to wonder about his playing future after a serious concussion.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette doesn't expect Ladarius Green (concussion) to play Sunday against the Patriots.

Bouchette is one of the most respected reporters of the last several decades and usually has a great read on all things involving the Steelers, which he sometimes divulges in a weekly fan Q & A. Asked about Green in this week's chat, Bouchette replied, "I don't think you will see him this Sunday. Not on the playing field anyway." Bouchette later said he doesn't expect Green to play at all this year. Coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Tuesday that Green has yet to pass through concussion protocol. Look for Jesse James to start at tight end in Foxboro.

ESPN Browns reporter Pat McManamon expects Cleveland to target Tyrod Taylor if he's released by the Bills.

Taylor is fully expected to be released by Buffalo, and ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak reiterated it on Tuesday. The Bills brought in new coach Sean McDermott and are overhauling the coaching staff, while GM Doug Whaley has never seemed to be a big fan of Taylor after ex-coach Rex Ryan handpicked him and started him over Whaley's bust, E.J. Manuel. Taylor will have no shortage of suitors once he's free. He'd be a fine match in Cleveland with Hue Jackson.

ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini expects the team to release Brandon Marshall this offseason.

Marshall is entering the final year of his contract and is coming off arguably the worst season of his career. He had a 10-year-low 59 catches for 788 yards, just the second time since 2006 that Marshall was held under 1,000 yards. He also found the end zone just three times after scoring a combined 45 touchdowns the previous four years. Everything can't be blamed on Marshall, however, as the quarterback play was truly atrocious. But Marshall turns 33 in March and is due a non-guaranteed $7.5 million. The Jets are going nowhere fast.

ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer ultimately expects Dallas to release Tony Romo this offseason.

While trading Romo is the Cowboys' "No. 1 priority," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it could be difficult for Dallas to find the compensation it desires when teams already know the Cowboys don't want him. Archer expects there to be "too many hoops to jump through" to pull off a trade, and the biggest one in particular will be how to swallow the massive $24.7 million cap hit. By designating Romo as a post-June 1 cut, the Cowboys could spread the cap hit out over the next two years and clear $14 million in 2017, allowing them resources to upgrade the defense.

Speaking Tuesday, Chris Hogan (thigh) said he was "feeling good."

Hogan departed Saturday's Divisional Round smackdown of the Texans. "Feeling good, just had a little minor setback in the game," Hogan said. "But I’m working back every single day and feeling better every day." Hogan will undoubtedly have his practice reps rationed, but he should be out there for the AFC Championship Game.

Seahawks assistant Tom Cable has withdrawn his name from consideration for the 49ers' head-coaching vacancy.

The news comes the same day it was reported Falcons OC Kyle Shanahan has emerged as the odds-on favorite to replace Chip Kelly. Cable will return to Seattle, where he has been one of Pete Carroll's top lieutenants since he made the jump from USC.
Jan 17 - 6:09 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the 49ers will offer their head-coaching job to Kyle Shanahan at the conclusion of the Falcons' season.

The sides will reportedly conduct a second interview after the NFC Championship Game. The 49ers can't officially hire Shanahan until the conclusion of the Falcons' playoff run, but it appears there's already a wink/nod agreement. It's why Seahawks executive Trent Kirchner "withdrew" from the general manager search on Tuesday. Kirchner was believed to want to pair up with Seahawks assistant Tom Cable. Successfully coordinating offenses since 2008 in Houston, Shanahan has earned the chance to lead a team.

Bills hired ex-Rams OC Rob Boras as TEs coach.

This speaks to the "quality" of Jeff Fisher's offensive — literally and figuratively — staff during his time as head coach in St. Louis/Los Angeles. Aside from his two-year sabbatical coordinating the Rams' offense, Boras has been an NFL TEs coach since 2004.

Seahawks executive Trent Kirchner has withdrawn from the 49ers' general manager search.

Kirchner's personnel partner Scott Fitterer is apparently still under consideration. Often, when a candidate publicly withdraws, it means the team has zeroed in on someone else, but that can't be assumed to be the case with the dysfunctional 49ers.
