Chargers GM Tom Telesco said in a radio appearance Wednesday he has been in contact with free agent Antonio Gates.

"Obviously, Antonio would be a natural fit," Telesco added. "He’s someone that we have talked to. We’ve talked to his representatives. Sometimes, it’s not just as easy as saying, ‘Hey, let’s just bring him back. Let’s go.’" It didn't lead to an immediate deal, but Gates might not be looking to sign until midway or most of the way through training camp, anyway. The Chargers' current tight end starter is Virgil Green with Hunter Henry (ACL) out for 2018.

Spencer Ware (hamstring) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Despite weeks of limited practices, Ware has not played since Week 14. This finally puts him on track to return, but it should be as little more than a changeup to Damien Williams, who has been excellent in lead duties. If Ware finally does suit up, he will be a low upside DFS option for the Conference Championship round.

Seahawks signed QB Paxton Lynch to a reserve/future contract.

The 2016 first-round mega bust did not struggle for workouts in 2018 but spent the year out of the league after being waived by the Broncos. It's a nothing-to-lose flier for a Seahawks squad that has routinely had one of the league's worst backup quarterback situations. Thankfully for them, Russell Wilson has literally never missed a game. Lynch seems unlikely to earn No. 2 duties in training camp. He just isn't polished enough to be an NFL quarterback.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports J.J. Watt underwent cleanup knee surgery following the Texans' Wild Card loss.

Per Rapsheet, it "sounds like he’s fine now" and was "just some maintenance on an injury that bothered him during the season." Any injury/operation is a concern for a player who missed most of 2016-17 — including 13 games in 2017 with a "tibial plateau fracture" — but 29-year-old Watt fully rebounded in 2018, playing all 16 games and notching 16 sacks. He turns 30 in March.

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Leonard Fournette is "in a really good place" following a meeting with the running back last week.

"We had a good meeting," Marrone said. "I’m not going to speak for Leonard, but when he left that meeting … I think he’s in a really good place. That’s encouraging and I’m excited about that." Fournette was the subject of criticism by EVP Tom Coughlin following Week 17, leading to some speculation he would be moved this offseason. The running back reportedly "cleared the air" with Coughlin, however, and has now done the same with his head coach. Despite the kumbayas, the two sides still could still have some contentious moments in the next couple months after Fournette filed a formal challenge about the team voiding more than $7 million in guaranteed money in his rookie contract, a move reported by Pro Football Talk.

Lions hired ex-Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell as offensive coordinator.

The Lions were turned down by many other candidates, but they finally found someone to take the job. Bevell was interviewed for the Falcons and Jaguars openings, but those jobs went to Dirk Koetter and John DeFilippo, respectively. Bevell will now call plays for defensive-minded coach Matt Patricia, who ran the offense into the ground in his first year on the job by putting shackles on OC Jim Bob Cooter and Matthew Stafford. As a run-first guy, Bevell fits Patricia's personality. The Lions will be better off once Patricia is out of Detroit.

1010 XL Jacksonville's Hays Carlyon believes the hiring of OC John DeFilippo "strengthens the possibility" of the Jaguars "making an aggressive play" for Nick Foles.

Foles will have plenty of suitors once he and the Eagles decide the best course of action for him. One thing seems certain -- Foles is highly unlikely to remain in Philly after the Eagles again committed to Carson Wentz as their quarterback. DeFilippo was Foles' position coach in 2017 with the Eagles when they won the Super Bowl on Foles' back. The Jaguars' obvious top need is finding a quarterback. Blake Bortles and his $21 million cap hit are on the way out the door.

Falcons DE Takk McKinley is back home in Oakland following his mental evaluation in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

A friend reportedly became "concerned" about McKinley's mental health at a hotel on Tuesday and requested police. McKinley cooperated, underwent the evaluation, and is now back home, so nothing was apparently wrong. McKinley can go about his normal day-to-day life in prep for 2019.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Cardinals interviewed ex-Packers OC Tom Clements for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.

Clements was one of Mike McCarthy's right-hand men in Green Bay for a decade from 2006-2016 before being removed from his duties. He called the Packers' plays in 2015 but had those duties stripped by McCarthy following subpar results. Clements spent 2017 and 2018 out of the league but was part of Aaron Rodgers' development and could be sought to do the same for Josh Rosen. New Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury has been eyeing veteran NFL coaching talent.

Broncos hired 49ers QBs coach Rich Scangarello as offensive coordinator.

Scangarello, 46, is a Kyle Shanahan disciple having worked with him in Atlanta and San Francisco following numerous jobs around the lower college ranks. He's a relative unknown but is now being tasked with running the offense in Denver alongside new defensive-minded coach Vic Fangio. Scangarello will have OL coach Mike Munchak to lean on, and we expect this offense to be run-oriented based on both Munchak and Shanahan's histories on hammering the run.

Jaguars hired ex-Vikings OC John DeFilippo as offensive coordinator.

40-year-old DeFilippo got his NFL coaching start under Tom Coughlin with the Giants and now rejoins him in Jacksonville. This will be DeFilippo's third stint as an OC. He called the plays for the 2015 Browns, getting career years out of Travis Benjamin and Gary Barnidge. DeFilippo then became the Eagles QBs coach and got a lot of notoriety for his work with Carson Wentz and Nick Foles en route to a Super Bowl win. His 13-game run as the Vikings OC in 2018 ended disastrously, but DeFilippo was stuck with an old-timer coach in Mike Zimmer who wanted to run the ball and play defense. This, however, is another stop in Jacksonville where the Jaguars are built the same way. The dots are already connecting on Foles potentially landing with the Jaguars as their new quarterback.

ESPN Bucs reporter Jenna Laine believes there's a "real chance" Tampa Bay releases DT Gerald McCoy this offseason.

McCoy has three years left on his contract but has no guaranteed money remaining, and the Bucs can save $13 million against the cap by cutting him. McCoy turns 31 next month, but his production has remained steady. McCoy has at least six sacks in six straight seasons and received strong marks for his run defense in 2018. The Bucs have a ton of key free agents and may need the money freed up in order to sign those players, specifically LT Donovan Smith.
