AZCentral.com's Bob McManaman reports the Cardinals have hired ex-Packers OC Tom Clements as the team's primary offensive assistant.

Clements will essentially fill Arizona's vacant OC position and serve as coach Kliff Kingsbury's primary offensive assistant and passing-game coordinator. Kingsbury will call his own plays, but Clements is expected to assist heavily in game-plans. Clements spent 11 years under Mike McCarthy and Green Bay's staff, notably winning a Super Bowl with the team back in 2011. Although he's been out of football the past two seasons, the Cardinals are hoping Clements' veteran status and assistance in developing Aaron Rodgers can help in developing Josh Rosen.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Steelers S Morgan Burnett wants to be released prior to free agency.

Burnett reportedly felt as if he played out of position with the Steelers as a linebacker in dime packages and wants a fresh start. He has two years remaining on his current deal. If granted his release, Burnett would likely sign on with an interested team as a full-time safety.

Texans re-signed RT Seantrel Henderson to a one-year, $4.5 million contract.

Henderson missed nearly all of the 2018 season with a broken ankle he suffered against the Patriots in Week 1. He'll be welcomed back with open arms in 2019 given Houston's leaky pass-pro the team flashed throughout the year. Either Julie'n Davenport or third-rounder Martinas Rankin will return to the bench.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports the Ravens and coach John Harbaugh have agreed in principle to a contract extension.

Harbaugh has one year remaining on his current deal, but the Ravens will still assuredly lock him up for the foreseeable future after he became a hot commodity following the team's Wild Card loss to the Chargers. Harbaugh has been at the helm for Baltimore since initially replacing Brian Billick in 2008. This pending extension ensures Harbaugh stays head coach despite the plethora of changes in and out of the front office around him over the past 12 months.

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones wants LB Sean Lee to return for 2019.

"We want him back," Jones told 105.3 The Fan. "He's a leader on this team." Lee is coming off another injury-prone year — missing nine games with hamstring issues. He wouldn't rule out retirement in a postseason press conference. Releasing Lee would create $7 million in cap savings, but Dallas looks open to keeping him.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer considers free agent LT Greg Robinson a candidate to return.

Robinson had a mini-breakout after taking over for Desmond Harrison in the final eight games last year. The Browns should try to bring him back if he's open to a team-friendly deal. Robinson has shown flashes as a starter, but he's best suited for a swing role.

Cameron Brate had arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip.

He's expected to miss a "few months." Brate played through the injury for most of the year but didn't sit any games. The Bucs are hoping to have Brate for the start of June's minicamp.

ESPN’s Jamison Hensley considers the Ravens a potential landing spot for free agent Tyrod Taylor.

Taylor had the best year of his career under OC Greg Roman with Buffalo. He would be a strong scheme fit as the backup to Lamar Jackson. The Taylor-to-Baltimore connection makes a lot of sense, but they could stay in-house with Robert Griffin III.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects C.J. Prosise (core) to be ready for OTAs.

Prosise went on IR in Week 13. He's been one of the most injured backs in the league the past three years, appearing in just 16 games. Seattle can save $475K from releasing Prosise.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Cowboys TE coach Doug Nussmeier could replace Scott Linehan as offensive coordinator.

Nussmeier is the top in-house candidate to take over for Linehan. A former quarterback, Nussmeier has previous coordinating experience at the college level. The Cowboys have also been linked to Georgia OC James Coley.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco suggested he'd be open to bringing back impending free agent Antonio Gates in 2019.

The Chargers planned to move on from Gates last season but wound up re-signing him after Hunter Henry tore his ACL at OTAs. "My heart says, yeah, he’ll be back next year," said Telesco. "But you put your G.M. hat on, and you look at what’s the role, where are resources are with the cap." Even if the Bolts re-up with Gates, the 38-year-old would just be Henry's backup.

Eric Berry (heel) wasn't listed on the Chiefs' final injury report for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

This was the expected outcome for Berry, who practiced fully all week. Heel issues have limited Berry to only three games this year. He'll be tasked with shutting down Rob Gronkowski, who went for 97 yards when these teams met in Week 6.
Jan 18 - 4:09 PM

Spencer Ware (hamstring) wasn't listed on the Chiefs' final injury report for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Patriots.

Neither were S Eric Berry (heel) or OG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (ankle). Ware will return from a four-game absence after putting in a full week of practice. Even with Ware available for the conference championship, Damien Williams should lead the Chiefs' backfield against New England.
Jan 18 - 4:08 PM

Cowboys signed WR Devin Smith to a reserve/futures contract.

Smith spent last year out of the league and hasn't played a game since tearing his ACL in 2017. A second-round pick in 2015, the former Jet faces an uphill battle to crack the Cowboys' 53-man roster.
Jan 18 - 3:54 PM

Packers hired Adam Stenavich as OL coach.

The Jets also had interest in Stenavich, who spent his previous two years working under Kyle Shanahan as the Niners' assistant O line coach. He'll join a revamped Packers staff featuring new coach Matt LaFleur and OC Nathaniel Hackett.
