Richard Sherman (Achilles') expects to be ready for training camp but expects the 49ers to be "overly cautious."

Sherman is correct that he will likely be eased into camp. It's possible, if not likely, that he is held out of the entire preseason. Sherman has progressed to jogging on the field in his rehab. He turned 30 in March.

Redskins GM Bruce Allen does not expect Reuben Foster to be further suspended.

"I don't know why we would suspect a suspension," Allen said Tuesday. The latest domestic violence charges against Foster were dropped earlier this month. Foster spent the final month of 2018 on the commissioner's exempt list after being claimed off waivers from the 49ers. The NFL moves at a glacial pace in these cases, so it could be a few months before we get a resolution.

Tweeting on Tuesday, impending free agent Cole Beasley posted that the Cowboys' front office "pushes who they want to get the ball to" and said his role will be a bigger factor than money when deciding where to sign.

"More balls come my way in two-minute drill where nothing is planned," Beasley frustratedly said of his Cowboys usage. It certainly sounds like he will be moving on unless the Cowboys offer a lot more money than anyone else. Going on 30, Beasley's 65 catches in 2018 were the second most of his career.

Speaking Tuesday about Alex Smith's (leg) health and a potential 2019 return, Redskins GM Bruce Allen said the team was "optimistic" but finished with "we'll see."

"We're optimistic, if anyone can come back it's Alex," was Allen's full comment, followed by "we'll see." Smith was spotted with an "external fixator" on his leg Monday and did not have the looks of someone who would be picking up a football any time soon. Smith seems extremely unlikely to be ready for Week 1. The question is if he is ready at any point in 2019.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports ex-Jets and Bills coach Rex Ryan is a "name to watch" for the Chiefs' defensive coordinator vacancy.

Schefter's report is via "sources." Ryan has a habit of openly campaigning for jobs/inserting himself into the conversation, but he can't be dismissed out of hand in Kansas City. A deeply-flawed head coach, Ryan is an undeniably strong defensive mind. He got Bill Belichick's number more than once.

Chiefs fired defensive coordinator Bob Sutton.

Sutton had been Andy Reid's defensive coordinator for Reid's entire six-year tenure in Kansas City, but his defense increasingly became a laughingstock as Reid continued to power up on offense. Per NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, his firing comes after Reid and company "talked with players and coaches." The takeaway was apparently that Sutton's "lack of adjustments" were a "non-stop frustration." The Chiefs have seen some talent go out of the door on Sutton's side of the ball, but he still had enough to work with to be better. With the Chiefs in the midst of a Super Bowl window, replacing Sutton will be an attractive job offer.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden is unsure if impending free agent Marshawn Lynch intends to play in 2019.

Lynch was limited to six games by a groin/core muscle injury in 2018. He was running reasonably well for a terrible offense before going down. Lynch has averaged 4.26 yards per carry since returning in 2017 and arguably been more impressive from an "eye test" perspective. He turns 33 in April.

Bengals hired Raiders QBs coach Brian Callahan as offensive coordinator.

Bill Callahan's son, Brian has been an NFL quarterbacks coach since 2015, spending 2015 in Denver before a two-year sojourn in Detroit. He joined Jon Gruden last offseason. A card-carrying cocoon member, it is entirely unclear if Callahan is qualified to run an NFL offense. It's possible new coach Zac Taylor serves as his own play-caller, anyways.

Impending free agent OLB Dee Ford "would love" to be back with the Chiefs.

Despite his offsides penalty costing the Chiefs a late interception and likely Super Bowl berth, Ford had an outstanding 2018, recording 13 sacks and making his first Pro Bowl. That kind of production will earn him a fat contract if he reaches the open market, but it is unlikely the Chiefs let him get there, retaining him either with a long-term deal or the franchise tag. The latter would earn Ford around $15.6 million for 2019.

Agent Tom Condon believes Eli Manning will be back with the Giants in 2019.

"I think he’d love to come back," Condon said. "Guys love to play their whole careers with one team if they have a good experience with that team." Set to make $17 million including a $5 million bonus due in mid-March, Manning's return could be contingent on the veteran taking a pay cut, but Condon has yet to have those conversations with the team. Even if Manning sticks around, the Giants' No. 1 priority this offseason should be finding their quarterback of the future.

CBS broadcaster Tony Romo confirmed he's received recent contract offers from NFL teams.

It's not surprising; Romo is now years removed from the back injuries that effectively ended his career and won't turn 39 until April. "There was something earlier this season and definitely two times this offseason," said Romo. "Usually, it is a coach that reaches out." Romo did indicate he's happy in broadcasting, where he's fast emerged as the top color analyst in the game.

Alex Smith was spotted wearing a massive brace on his right leg at the Washington Wizards' game on Monday.

Per Dr. David Chao, the brace is called an "external fixator." It can be viewed at the link below. After suffering compound and spiral fractures in his right leg, Smith dealt with infections that prompted several more surgeries. Smith appears highly unlikely to be ready for the beginning of the 2019 season.
