Free agent K Adam Vinatieri confirms he'll return for a 21st season in 2016.

"Not only a season, but lord willing, a couple of years," Vinatieri said. "There will come a time when it’s over for me. I don’t think that time is yet. I enjoy playing. I enjoy doing my thing." The Colts have already said they'd like to re-sign Vinatieri, who remains one of the league's best kickers. Vinatieri will undoubtedly require a raise on the $2.5 million he averaged the past two years. Vinatieri turned 43 in December.

NFL Network's Mike Silver said the Browns lied about Johnny Manziel being in the concussion protocol Week 17.

"Johnny Manziel, going into what would have been a start late in the season, showed up drunk at practice on a Wednesday," Silver reported. "The Browns lied and said he was in the concussion protocol." The Browns have already decided to move on from Manziel, but this report could lead to serious discipline for the organization if true. The Browns have denied the report. Manziel is currently under investigation for allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend in January.

Titans released FS Michael Griffin.

The move is not surprising. A first-round pick by the Titans in 2007, Griffin is a two-time Pro Bowler and led the league in interceptions in 2008, but his play has been declining for several seasons. Griffin has been one of the NFL's most overpaid defensive backs for nearly a half-decade. The 31-year-old will struggle to get a long-term deal on the open market. The Titans saved $6.5 million against the cap by releasing Griffin.

Broncos GM John Elway said re-signing impending free agent ILB Danny Trevathan will be a priority.

Denver should retain restricted free agent ILB Brandon Marshall on a one-year tender, but keeping Trevathan around could prove more difficult. The Broncos are about to shell out a huge contract to Von Miller, need to fill a likely hole at quarterback, and want to retain DE Malik Jackson as well. Trevathan recorded 109 tackles and intercepted two passes in 2015.

Broncos GM John Elway said retaining impending free agent DE Malik Jackson is a priority.

Elway said the same about ILB Danny Trevathan, and the Broncos still need to either tag OLB Von Miller or give him a massive extension. With limited cap space and a likely hole at quarterback, it will be tough for Denver to retain every piece of their historic defense. Jackson will be one of the hottest names available if he reaches the open market.

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman said he would consider using the franchise tag on impending free agent CB Josh Norman.

"You can't sign everybody," Gettleman said, "but we're going to everything we can to keep our core together." Norman is easily the Panthers' top concern heading into the offseason, and there is almost no chance they let him hit the open market. Whether by the tag or a long-term deal, Norman should remain in Carolina for the foreseeable future.

Broncos GM John Elway said there is "no deadline" for Peyton Manning to make his retirement decision.

Manning said Monday he plans to take "a few" weeks to make his decision. He will likely decide to retire, but if not he will put Elway in a tough spot. Manning is set to count $21.5 million against the cap, and his recent play does not justify that kind of hit. With his $19 million base salary set to guarantee on March 9, the Broncos need Manning to make his decision in the next month.

Pro Football Talk reports Broncos CB Aqib Talib could be suspended for intentionally tackling Corey Brown by his facemask in the Super Bowl.

Talib grabbed and twisted Brown down by his facemask inside the five in the second quarter. It was his second personal foul of the first half. Talib indicated after the game he intentionally grabbed Brown's facemask to make the tackle. "My teammates knew what it was," Talib said. "He was on the 3-yard line. (With) a personal foul, he was on the 1 1/2-yard line, so it is what it is." Talib was suspended for Week 10 after poking Colts TE Dwayne Allen in the eye.

Impending free agent WR Jerricho Cotchery wants to re-sign with Carolina.

Cotchery had a Super Bowl to forget, arguably dropping three passes including what would have been a critical first-down catch early in the game. Cotchery normally offers a reliable set of veteran hands, but he has not made much of an impact in his two seasons with the Panthers. Carolina could decide to move on as they attempt to upgrade the receiver position this offseason.

Impending free agent FB Mike Tolbert said he wants to remain with the Panthers.

He has yet to talk with the front office. With Tolbert unlikely to break the bank, it makes sense for Carolina to re-sign the versatile fullback. Tolbert earned First-Team All-Pro honors for the second time in his career in 2015.

Impending free agent WR Marvin Jones said he will not accept a "hometown discount."

"I'd like to be back, but at the same time I am a free agent – no hometown discount, definitely not – but I'm a free agent," Jones told NFL Media prior to the Super Bowl. "It wouldn't be good for me not to test the waters a little bit. So it's just an exciting process." Poised to be the top free agent receiver available, it does not make sense for Jones to accept less money to play second fiddle to A.J. Green for the next several seasons. Jones should land himself a nice contract and potentially a No. 1 job this offseason.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano expects MLB Jon Beason (knee surgery) to be released.

Signed to a three-year, $17 million contract in 2014, Beason has played nine games in the last two seasons and recently underwent knee surgery. The Giants are simply not going to accept a $6.56 million cap hit for a player who is so rarely on the field. Beason has said he will consider retirement if his body does not respond well to the latest surgery.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano believes the team will "part ways" with veteran LT Will Beatty.

Beatty is owed a $6.625 million base salary and is set to count $9.175 million against the cap. Both numbers would be fine for a left tackle, but it appears the Giants will move forward with 2015 first-rounder Ereck Flowers on the left side. That likely means Beatty will have to accept both a pay cut and a demotion to right tackle if he wants to stay in New York. It is unlikely he wants to do either.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano believes the "chances are good" Victor Cruz (calf) and the team work out a renegotiated deal which keeps the receiver in New York.

Coming off a torn patellar tendon two seasons ago and a torn calf last season, Cruz has not played an NFL game since October of 2014. There is little chance the Giants will accept a $9.9 million cap hit for a player they cannot rely on to be healthy, but Graziano believes Cruz will be "amenable to a pay cut." If he is, there is enough history and goodwill between the two sides to work something out.

In an internal memo, the NFL announced players who have been convicted on domestic violence, sexual assault, or weapons charges will not be allowed to attend the Scouting Combine or NFL draft.

The memo says any player with a prior felony or misdemeanor conviction or any player who refuses to submit to a background check will not be allowed to attend "any league-related event." The event ban will not affect draft eligibility. The ban means someone like Seahawks DE Frank Clark, who pled guilty to a lesser charge after being charged with domestic violence while at Michigan, would not have been allowed to attend the Combine last year. Clark still would have been eligible for selection when the Seahawks picked him in the second round.
