Seahawks signed OL Robert Myers to a reserve/future contract.

A fifth-round pick of the Ravens in 2015, Myers spent all of 2016 on Seattle's practice squad after bouncing around the league as a rookie. Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports the Seahawks plan to give Myers a shot at right tackle this offseason, which is the position he played in college. Still, he is unlikely to crack the final roster.

Pro Football Talk believes Falcons director of football operations Nick Polk could be a candidate for the 49ers' vacant general manager position.

After both Eliot Wolf and Brian Gutekunst decided to stay with the Packers, the 49ers are having to look further down their list. Vikings assistant GM George Paton would seem to be the favorite, but it makes sense for San Francisco to find someone presumptive coach Kyle Shanahan is comfortable working with. Polk, who has been with the Falcons for 12 seasons, could be that guy.

Colts GM Ryan Grigson said he "definitely" wants to re-sign impending free agent TE Jack Doyle.

This, of course, assumes Grigson will still be the general manager, but it looks like he is safe at this point. Doyle had a breakout 2016, hauling in 59 passes for 584 yards and five touchdowns. All three numbers eclipsed his career totals entering the year. Doyle is not the type of dynamic receiving threat which commands big dollars on the open market, but he should be looking for more than the three-year, $13-million deal Brent Celek landed last January.

Chiefs signed WR Seantavius Jones, OG Jordan Devey, QB Joel Stave, OT Joseph Cheek, DB Jimmy Hall, DT Cory Johnson, DE David King, LB Earl Okine, DB Julian Wilson, and FB Will Ratelle to reserve/future contracts.

Jones made some noise a couple training camps ago with the Saints, but he was waived by the Chiefs before final cuts last August. He will get another shot to latch on to the bottom of the roster, but his chances are slim. Devey saw some time on the Chiefs' active roster this season after starting nine games with the 49ers in 2015.

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said the team is "penciling in" LB Jaylon Smith (knee) "as a big-time contributor."

The Cowboys have been consistently optimistic about Smith's ability to return from the gruesome knee injury he suffered in the Fiesta Bowl last January. The injury resulted in nerve damage which has been slow to repair, but Smith said he is getting closer to normal. He might never be the top-ten pick he was before the injury, but it looks like Smith will at least be able to contribute. He is expected to get on the field in OTAs.

Scout.com's Ben Standig reports Rob Kelley underwent surgery on his right knee following Washington's season-ending loss to the Giants.

Kelley suffered the injury in Week 16, played with a brace against the Giants, and had the knee operated on shortly after the loss. A source told Standig the surgery was "relatively minor" and "dealt with the meniscus." Kelley averaged just 3.33 yards per carry over the Redskins' final six games and showed next to no passing-game ability. He'll face competition for his starting job in 2017.

Chargers hired Gus Bradley as defensive coordinator.

Bradley previously flirted with the Redskins and drew interest from the 49ers. A Pete Carroll disciple, Bradley installed a Cover 3 scheme in Jacksonville and the defense was coming together nicely with a young talent core just as Bradley was fired. In Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward, and Joey Bosa, Bradley is inheriting a Chargers defense with some important building blocks in place.

Bucs signed QB Sean Renfree to a reserve/future contract.

Renfree has been out of the league since getting cut in the preseason. He was a backup for two years in Atlanta. Renfree could open training camp as the No. 3 quarterback behind Jameis Winston and Ryan Griffin.

Redskins hired Kevin O'Connell as QB coach.

O'Connell was fired after one season as Cleveland's quarterbacks coach. He spent last year as an offensive assistant with the 49ers. O'Connell's hiring confirms Matt Cavanaugh will be promoted to offensive coordinator. Coach Jay Gruden is expected to call plays in 2017.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said wants to extend DE Khalil Mack.

Mack is under team control for the next two years (2018 option). There's no rush to get a deal done, but Oakland has $46.6 million in cap space to lock him up this offseason. A two-time All Pro, Mack is going to push Von Miller for the top pass rusher salary in the league.

CSN Mid Atlantic expects the Ravens to part ways with OLB Elvis Dumervil.

This falls in line with previous reports. Dumervil missed eight games to injury, but was effective when healthy. He shouldn't struggle for free agent offers despite entering his age-33 season. Baltimore can save $6 million from releasing Dumervil.
Jan 20 - 6:37 PM

Jaguars hired Keenan McCardell as WRs coach.

It's a reunion after McCardell spent most of his playing career in Jacksonville. McCardell had a previous stint as Washington's receivers coach, but hasn't been in the NFL since 2011. He's another hire with strong ties to EVP Tom Coughlin. McCardell will look to turn the careers of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns after down seasons.

Patriots LB Dont'a Hightower (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Hightower is fully expected to play despite a limited week of practice. Patriots DE Jabaal Sheard (knee) is also listed as questionable.

Sports Illustrated's Mike Silver reports the 49ers are still pursuing Gus Bradley for their vacant defensive coordinator position.

Bradley had his sights set on reuniting with Tom Cable, but he recently withdrew his name from consideration for the Niners' head-coaching job. The Niners are reportedly "upping their offer" to Bradley, so it looks like they're fairly serious about bringing him on board. Bradley has also been linked to vacancies in San Diego and Washington this offseason.
Jan 20 - 5:01 PM

Danny Amendola (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Steelers.

He was a limited participant at all three practices this week. Amendola played just 21-of-69 offensive snaps last week in his first game back from a high-ankle sprain. More might be asked of him this week with Chris Hogan nursing a thigh injury and Michael Floyd coming off an awful game in the Divisional Round.
