The Eagles have moved DL Taylor Hart to offensive tackle.

When the Eagles were in a pinch for line help late in the season, they asked Hart to try his hand at the switch. He apparently showed enough in few practice sessions to head into the offseason program as an offensive lineman. Hart wasn't playing on defense, so maybe the move will help him find a role.

Dolphins SLB Koa Misi is viewed as a candidate for release this offseason.

Misi is entering the final year of his contract, and the Dolphins can save $4.2 million against the cap by cutting him. It seems like a no-brainer mover for Mike Tannenbaum and Co. after Misi missed all but three games due to a serious neck injury that was initially viewed as career-threatening. Misi is now expected to resume his career, but Miami is expected to re-do its linebacker group.

Impending free agent RG T.J. Lang will undergo foot and hip arthroscopic surgeries on Friday.

Termed as "scopes," these are minor procedures that should have zero-to-minimal effect on Lang's availability for the offseason as he heads toward free agency. Lang expressed a desire to re-sign with the Packers following their loss to the Falcons on Sunday. Lang is entering his age-30 campaign and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 6 right guard in the regular season.

Jets signed WR Frankie Hammond to a reserve/future contract.

Hammond was out of the league last season after being part of the Chiefs' final cuts. He appeared in 25 games for Kansas City from 2014-15, catching four passes for 45 yards while mainly pitching in on special teams.

The Colts have requested interviews with Vikings assistant GM George Paton and Seahawks co-directors of player personnel Trent Kirchner and Scott Fitterer for their general-manager vacancy.

In-house candidate Jimmy Raye III is also in the running for the position. Paton is viewed as the favorite for the 49ers' GM spot after Kirchner and Fitterer bowed out of the running earlier in the process. Andrew Luck's presence as a young franchise QB on a long-term deal is very appealing.

Chiefs re-signed LS James Winchester.

Winchester, 27, has been the Chiefs' long snapper for the past two seasons. He had a trying 2016 season that saw his father senselessly murdered in an Oklahoma City airport shooting back in November.

Coach Pete Carroll admitted there are concerns about C.J. Prosise's durability.

"I can’t tell you that I'm not concerned about C.J.," Carroll said. "He had trouble through the offseason. He was unavailable to us throughout, and there was a groin and a hammy and a wrist and the scapula thing he had. He has to show it." Durability concerns are probably the one thing that could hold Prosise back from being an every-down player, limiting him to 12-15 touches.

Redskins re-signed LS Nick Sundberg to a four-year contract.

Sundberg has been Washington's deep snapper since 2010.

Packers CB Sam Shields (concussion) said he's still having occasional headaches.

Shields suffered his second concussion in a calendar year back in Week 1 and ended up missing the rest of the season. It's a major concern, but Shields said he still wants to play. "I’m thinking it’s not over. I’ve still got more in me," Shields said. "I just love the game, man, and I feel that I can get back out there and play." The Packers are expected to explore cutting Shields this offseason.

Redskins promoted QBs coach Matt Cavanaugh to offensive coordinator.

This has been in the works for a couple days and always made the most sense to keep stability on offense after Sean McVay left for the Rams' head-coaching gig. Cavanaugh has been coaching in the NFL since 1994. He hasn't been an offensive coordinator in the league since 2004 with the Ravens. This will be his third season in D.C. Kevin O'Connell replaces him as QBs coach.

The Ravens now view 2016 second-rounder Kamalei Correa as an inside linebacker.

Correa was drafted No. 42 overall in last year's draft as a 3-4 edge rusher, but Baltimore quickly moved him inside last spring. The coaching staff said he lacked instincts and needs to dissect plays faster. Correa ended up playing just 49 snaps as a rookie but could replace recently-retired Zach Orr as the starter next to C.J. Mosley. Correa will certainly face competition.

Redskins hired ex-49ers coach Jim Tomsula as DL coach.

Tomsula sat out the 2016 season as he was still collecting a salary from the 49ers following his dismissal as head coach after one season. Prior to that, Tomsula was one of the most respected defensive line coaches in the league, coaching the 49ers' unit for eight seasons. He's a good get for the Skins.

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton considers the franchise tag a possibility for impending free agent DT Kawann Short.

There are a lot of directions the Panthers could go at defensive tackle. 2013 first-rounder Star Lotulelei is heading into the final year of his deal and will also be looking for a long-term contract. And 2016 first-rounder Vernon Butler may be ready to step up but could use another year of development. Letting Short walk isn't out of the realm of possibilities for GM Dave Gettleman in a deep draft class. Short is expected to ask for $17-19 million annually on a new contract.

Impending free agent OLB James Harrison intends to continue his playing career in 2017.

Harrison turns 39 in May but remains in peak physical condition. "I'm not done," Harrison said. "I feel physically fine." Harrison was nearly an every-down player the final month of the season and into the playoffs. In the regular season, he graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 8 outside linebacker out of 59 qualifiers. The Steelers would likely want to bring him back.

Sammie Coates earned two catches for 34 yards on five targets Sunday in the Steelers' AFC Championship Game loss to the Patriots.

Coates alligator-armed a perfectly-thrown deep ball by Ben Roethlisberger on the Steelers’ opening possession. He had a few more chances and eventually hauled in a 30-yard catch for the Steelers’ longest gain of the night. It looked like Coates was onto something when he averaged 84.2 yards over his first five games this season but he faded quickly while battling finger and hamstring injuries. A boom-or-bust deep threat with suspect hands, Coates has a ways to go before he's back on the fantasy radar.
