49ers placed RB Marcus Lattimore (knees) on the active/NFI list.

It serves the same function as the PUP list. Lattimore has plenty of time to round into form for Week 1, but it's an obvious disappointment he still isn't 100 percent nearly two years after suffering the knee injury that ended his college career. CSN Bay Area reported late last month that Lattimore had a "ways to go" to regain his pre-injury form. Rookie Carlos Hyde is shaping up as the heavy favorite to handcuff Frank Gore. Lattimore has no current value in re-draft leagues.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the Chiefs and impending free agent SS Eric Berry are "very close" on a six-year deal worth $13 million per season.

The Chiefs are reportedly making a "strong push" to lock up Berry before Wednesday's franchise tag deadline, and it looks like they are going to get the deal done. The reported annual figure will make Berry the highest-paid safety in the league. Getting Berry's deal done before the deadline will allow the Chiefs to tag NT Dontari Poe if they so choose.

Vikings announced they will not pick up Adrian Peterson's 2017 option, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Minnesota was never going to pick up Peterson's option, which would have paid him $18 million in 2017, but GM Rick Spielman has not closed the door on the running back returning. "Adrian is an important part of the Minnesota Vikings organization," Spielman said. "We will continue to have conversations with his representatives and leave our future options open while determining what is best for both parties moving forward." Peterson will certainly want to test his value on the open market, but he might be disappointed by what he finds once he gets there, opening the door for the Vikings to re-sign him on a more cost-friendly deal. Peterson has expressed interest in playing for the Texans, Bucs, and Giants. He has also been linked with the Cowboys.

Free agent RB Fred Jackson said he "would love to play again."

Jackson sat out all of 2016, but the 36-year-old is still harboring hopes of a return to the NFL. "You know, I'm going to try and see if I could get on a roster again," Jackson said. "I was in contact with a few teams last year about coming in, and things just never worked out...We'll shake those branches and see if something happens." Jackson is very unlikely to get a look, but he seems content with retirement if he is unable to find any takers, saying, "I had ten years that I played and I enjoyed every minute of it." The most likely outcome is Jackson signs a one-day contract to retire as a Bill sometime this year.

The Dallas Morning News' Naheed Rajwani reports the misdemeanor assault charge against Johnny Manziel is "on track to be dismissed under conditions."

Manziel had a court hearing in Dallas on Tuesday in which the presiding judge lectured him on his responsibilities moving forward. "I want to see from you that you are taking this situation seriously," Judge Robert Canas said. "I would hate for you to miss on on the opportunity that you've got." For his part, Manziel said "everything has been going extremely smoothly" and his "life is trending upwards." Self-reportedly sober, Manziel hopes to make another run at an NFL career. Clearing up his legal troubles is a step in the correct direction, but it remains unlikely he will get another shot. A CFL job might be his best option.

Browns placed a second-round tender on restricted free agent Isaiah Crowell.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the two sides are working on a long-term deal. The tender, reportedly worth $2.81 million, will give them more time to hash out the details. Crowell came out of the gates hot in 2016, recording 447 total yards and three touchdowns in the first four games. Hampered by an injury-marred offensive line, he slowed down considerably the rest of the way, but he still set new career highs in carries (198), receptions (40), and total yards (1,271). The Browns have been linked with running backs this offseason, but the long-term negotiations suggest Crowell will remain atop the depth chart in 2017.

Bucs tendered exclusive rights free agent TE Cameron Brate.

It is a no-brainer decision after Brate broke out with 57 catches for 660 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016. There have been rumors the Bucs will add a more dynamic pass catcher at tight end this offseason, but if they plan to open 2017 with Brate as their primary option, it would make a lot of sense to work out a long-term extension. Brate will be a restricted free agent next offseason if he plays under the tender this year. Tampa also extended qualifying offers to WR Adam Humphries, CB Jude Adjei-Barimah, LB Adarius Glanton, and WR Freddie Martino.

Speaking on PFT Live, agent Drew Rosenhaus said he is "flabbergasted" by rumors the Bills plan to trade or release LeSean McCoy.

McCoy's big cap number ($8.875 million) has sparked speculation the new coaching staff might look for a cheaper option, and Shady, perhaps unintentionally, put fuel to the fire by tweeting, "Buffalo was so special ... thanks for everything," on Sunday. McCoy appears to have been tweeting about an appearance at an autograph signing, however, and Rosenhaus said he believes McCoy will play for the Bills for "many years to come." It makes little sense for a team with few offensive weapons and who might be without a quarterback in the near future to move on from a player of McCoy's caliber.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are unlikely to re-sign impending free agent Kenny Stills.

Salguero reports the Dolphins will "make a strong pitch" at the Combine this week, but Stills is "more likely to leave via free agency than stay in Miami." Considering Salguero has already reported the receiver is likely to land around $12 million a year on the open market, it is not surprising the Dolphins are struggling to match that price. Only 24, Stills likely will be one of the hottest names when the legal tampering period opens next week.

ESPN's Tim McManus reports "several free-agent wide receivers" are "drawn to the idea" of playing with Carson Wentz.

It is great news for the Eagles, who need a No. 1 receiver in the worst way. Still, no receiver is going to take significantly less money just to play with an ascending quarterback, and Philadelphia might not have the financial muscle to be serious contenders for someone like Alshon Jeffery. Kenny Stills might be more in their range, but there are reports he will fetch around $12 million per year. If the Eagles really want to upgrade their receiver position via free agency, they will have to spend top dollar.

ESPN's Mike Reiss reports using the franchise tag on impending free agent LB Dont'a Hightower is not "a serious consideration" for the Patriots.

The two sides do not seem particularly close in contract negotiations, and the Patriots likely do not want to risk paying Hightower upwards of $15 million on a one-year tender if they cannot reach a long-term agreement. Reiss believes New England could handle the situation similarly to the way they handled negotiations with S Devin McCourty, who was allowed to test his value on the market before ultimately re-signing. If that is the path they choose to take, it is possible if not likely they end up losing Hightower.

Fred Roggin of NBC Los Angeles reports the Chargers are hiring LaDainian Tomlinson for a front office position.

It is not clear what the job is or what Tomlinson's role will be. Considering he is still employed by the NFL Network, which is based in Los Angeles, he is likely being added in a ceremonial or community outreach role. Rolling out a Hall of Famer at team events is not a bad idea as the Chargers attempt to gain a foothold in LA.
