Bills WLB Kiko Alonso underwent successful surgery Thursday to repair his torn left ACL.

Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery. This is mostly for bookkeeping purposes, as Alonso is done for the season. He was placed on the active/NFI list, which serves the same purpose as PUP, on Wednesday, and will be transferred to I.R. eventually. The Bills will look to third-round rookie Preston Brown and third-year LB Nigel Bradham to fill Alonso's shoes.

Citing six "high-level NFL sources," Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports the Cowboys and Cardinals are not willing to pay the price the Vikings have demanded to trade Adrian Peterson.

"Dallas has not even spoken to Minnesota regarding Peterson," Robinson writes, while Arizona is unwilling to surrender its first-round pick. Peterson-to-the-Cardinals reportedly could be a done deal were Vikings GM Rick Spielman willing to trade A.P. for a mid-to-late second-round pick, but that is currently not happening. Robinson speculates that the Buccaneers and Jaguars are sleepers to acquire Peterson, perhaps in exchange for a top-40 pick. According to Robinson, Spielman's "feet are in cement," he "wants Peterson in a Vikings uniform," and "it's going to take a sledgehammer to remove him from that spot."

"Multiple sources" tell the Miami Herald that the Dolphins "covet" Georgia RB Todd Gurley, and "would love" for Gurley to fall to them at No. 14.

No. 14 would be considered a "fall" for Gurley, who is now seen as a probable top-ten pick. Many NFL evaluators view Gurley as one of the best all-around players in an otherwise weak 2015 draft class. The Herald spoke to Miami Heat team physician Harlan Selesnick, who said the risk of an ACL re-tear is just two percent for pro athletes. "The success rate in terms of stability is really quite good," Selesnick stated. "You don’t see a lot of guys having a repeat ACL surgery. You can usually feel comfortable taking one of those players."

ESPN's Mark Dominik is "certain" Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota will go 1-2 in this week's NFL draft.

Dominik also believes UCLA's Brett Hundley "should" go in the first round, but that's just his opinion. Dominik was an NFL general manager as recently as the 2013 season and likely still has close ties to many personnel people around the league. It would be a shock if Winston and Mariota weren't selected at Nos. 1 and 2 overall, although not necessarily in that order.

According to the Tampa Tribune, the Buccaneers have met or spoken with "upwards of 75 people" with ties to Florida State QB Jameis Winston throughout the draft process.

They want to know if Winston's off-field transgressions were "the work of a bad person or simply an immature one." The Bucs conducted a similar investigation with Justin Blackmon a few years back, staking him out at a local bar to see how many times he would attend throughout the week. Buccaneers officials spoke with the Tallahassee State Attorney's Office about an FSU student who received "counseling services" after a sexual encounter with Winston. According to the Attorney's Office, the student did not press charges and "doesn't even consider herself a victim." We'll know Thursday if Winston's baggage is too much for the Buccaneers to handle.

NBC's Alex Flanagan tweeted Saturday that she's been talking to "more and more people" who believe rumors of Philip Rivers being traded by the Chargers "have legitimate legs."

As Flanagan noted, the Titans "need Rivers," in order for beleaguered GM Ruston Webster and coach Ken Whisenhunt to save their jobs. The Chargers would be a good fit for Marcus Mariota, going to a coach in Mike McCoy who's repeatedly shown the ability to craft his offense to maximize his quarterback's strengths. Any deal of Rivers to Tennessee would likely require a long-term agreement between the team and Rivers. The Titans would have to have that assurance from Rivers' camp before executing the trade. Rivers is entering the final year of his contract.

"Several executives" told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel they've either removed Boise State RB Jay Ajayi from their draft boards or "backed way off" because of how their medical staffs evaluated Ajayi's knee.

Ajayi tore his ACL in 2011, and it's feared he may need microfracture surgery down the line. "I just don't know if he'll hold up physically," one scout said. "He's had a lot of carries." Since tearing the ACL, of course, Ajayi dominated college football and showed big-time NFL-caliber tools. The concern continues to be with Ajayi's longevity, at a position where longevity isn't the expectation.

Eagles rescinded their RFA tender to RB Chris Polk.

He becomes an unrestricted free agent. With DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews ahead of him, Polk wasn't worth his $1.54 million tender. Polk, 25, is a plodding short-yardage specialist with some special teams skills.

NJ.com's Mark Eckel passes along a "rumor making its rounds in NFL personnel meetings" of the Eagles trading Sam Bradford to the Browns for the No. 19 overall pick in the draft.

The Browns already offered No. 19 to the Rams for Bradford, prior to his trade to Philadelphia. St. Louis didn't accept because it wanted a quarterback, and wound up acquiring Nick Foles. The Browns are "still said to have interest" in Bradford. Per Eckel, the rumor has the Eagles then sending Nos. 19 and 20 -- plus Mychal Kendricks and Fletcher Cox -- to the Titans in exchange for No. 2 overall, where Philly would select Marcus Mariota. Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported Friday that Bradford currently believes the Eagles may be planning to trade him.

Titans signed WR Hakeem Nicks, formerly of the Colts.

The NFL's version of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Titans love old, run-down, has-beens. Add Nicks to a pile that already included Harry Douglas, Anthony Fasano, Kam Wimbley, and Shonn Greene. Nicks tried to rehab his value in Indianapolis with the game's best young passer last season and still did little, struggling to a 38-405-4 line before seeing his snaps cut in favor of Donte Moncrief. Nicks is just 27, but plays like he's 37. Even for disappointing Justin Hunter, Nicks is unlikely to provide serious competition.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran believes Justin Blackmon is "done-zo" with the Jaguars.

O'Halloran made the comment in a chat, so he was merely speaking his opinion. The Jaguars' higher-ups have backed Blackmon to a certain degree and said nice things about the former No. 5 overall pick, but by the way the team has approached free agency and the draft over the past year, they appear set to move on. O'Halloran believes Amari Cooper will be in play at No. 3 overall.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports both the Chargers and Eagles are "exploring the possibility" of trading up for Oregon QB Marcus Mariota "through the Browns."

The Browns have two first-rounders, ammunition needed for the Chargers or Eagles to leapfrog into the top-two picks. (The Browns are also believed to be interested in Mariota, complicating matters.) A league source confirmed to Pauline that the Browns "hold the most powerful position in the draft," and "the ability to dictate" whether any team can pull off a trade up for Mariota.
