ESPN's Mike Wells doesn't expect the Colts to re-sign OL A.Q. Shipley.

A restricted free agent, Shipley will likely be non-tendered. He graded out as a top-15 center by Pro Football Focus, but played limited snaps after losing his starting job to Jonotthan Harrison in Week 5. Shipley should resurface on a veteran-minimum deal.

The Indianapolis Star reports there's "nothing imminent" on a contract extension for Andrew Luck.

ESPN reported this week the Colts were working on a new deal for Luck. Entering the final year of his contract, Luck is expected to be extended at some point during the offseason. Luck led the NFL in touchdowns (40) and finished behind only Drew Brees and Ben Roethlisberger in passing yards (4,761). He's expected to command a deal that will make him the highest-paid player in the league, likely in the range of $25 million per season.

Nebraska RB Ameer Abdullah was named MVP of the Senior Bowl.

Abdullah had 113 total yards on 11 touches. His impressive all-around game was on full display for NFL teams. Abdullah projects as a Day 2 pick in a deep running back class. He measured 5-foot-8 and 198 pounds at the Senior Bowl weigh-in.

Jimmy Graham said he's still considering offseason shoulder surgery.

Graham didn't miss any games due to his shoulder issue, but it noticeably limited his production in the second half. He reportedly plans to use the Pro Bowl to decide whether he'll need surgery. Graham had an 85/889/10 line in 2014.

Bills DT Marcell Dareus isn't expected to receive an extension this offseason.

Dareus is under contract for $8.06 million in 2015 after the Bills exercised his fifth-year option. He's coming off his second straight Pro Bowl, and should require top-three defensive tackle money. Dareus and LT Cordy Glenn are both free agents after the 2015 season.

The Giants' website doesn't expect Will Beatty to move to right tackle.

There's been speculation Beatty could be replaced if the Giants can upgrade on him in the draft or free agency, but it would be a surprise if he didn't remain on Eli Manning's blindside. Beatty has an $8.15 million cap hit in 2015 and is under contract for the next three seasons.

Packers FB John Kuhn plans to test free agency.

Kuhn made his second Pro Bowl this year despite playing just 249 snaps. He had to settle for a one-year deal with the Packers last offseason and could struggle to attract interest on the open market. Kuhn will most likely end up back in Green Bay on a team-friendly contract.

Lane Kiffin will remain at Alabama for 2015.

Kiffin was considered the frontrunner for the 49ers' offensive-coordinator job. San Francisco could now turn its attention to Colts assistant Rob Chudzinski or QB coach Geep Chryst. Mike Shanahan has also been linked to the 49ers.

Coach Bill Belichick said the Patriots "followed every rule" in their process of preparing game balls for the AFC Championship.

The Patriots called a press conference on Saturday to announce the results of an internal investigation into 'DeflateGate.' Belichick believes the Patriots' game-day process for preparing footballs artificially created a 1.5 pound difference in PSI, which led to the balls being inflated less in the second half. The NFL's investigation into the situation remains ongoing, but there's unlikely to be any resolution before the Super Bowl. New England would be subject to lost draft picks if the league determines they illegally deflated footballs.

Saints signed CB Delvin Breaux.

A shutdown corner in the CFL, Breaux received strong interest from NFL teams this offseason. He lands in a good spot with the Saints, who had some of the worst cornerback play in the league last year. At 6-foot-1, 195 pounds Breaux has prototype size for Rob Ryan's Press Man concepts. With Keenan Lewis and Terrence Frederick currently atop the Saints' depth chart, Breaux will have a chance for immediate playing time.

ESPN New York believes the Giants could move on from C J.D. Walton.

Walton started all 16 games for the Giants after signing a two-year deal last offseason. He's due a $750,000 roster bonus and should be a cap casualty. The Giants can save $3 million by cutting Walton. Releasing Walton will allow 2014 second-rounder Weston Richburg to start at center.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano believes MLB Jon Beason could be released this offseason.

Beason is guaranteed $900k in 2015, but the Giants could save roughly $3.5 million against the cap by releasing the injury-prone middle linebacker. The problem is Jameel McClain was not impressive as Beason's stand in last season, and there is no one better currently on the Giants' roster. A pay cut may make more sense for both sides.

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano called DE Mathias Kiwanuka an "obvious" candidate to be released this offseason.

Set to count $7.5 million against the cap, the Giants could save $4.85 million by cutting the almost 32-year-old Kiwanuka. With only 15 sacks total to his name over the last four seasons and his effectiveness against the run diminishing, Kiwanuka is an easy cut for the Giants. He will struggle to get anything more than one-year deals on the open market.

Impending free-agent RB Justin Forsett said the Ravens have expressed interest in re-signing him.

"They expressed that they want me back. I want to be back, so we'll see what happens," Forsett said. After bouncing around the league the first six years of his career, Forsett was finally given an opportunity to lead a backfield in Baltimore this season. He did not disappoint. Forsett racked up 1266 yards and eight touchdowns on 235 carries for the Ravens, earning his first Pro Bowl bid in the process.

ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer views impending free-agent RT Doug Free as a "must-keep."

Archer called Free the "leader of the room" and believes he is "better than people think." Cowboys VP Stephen Jones has made it clear the team wants to keep one of Free and impending free-agent RT Jermey Parnell on the roster for 2015. Parnell will likely be the cheaper option, and that could be important for a team looking to re-sign both Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray. Both Free and Parnell were above-average players in 2014.
