Greg Jennings said that Ryan Tannehill badly wants "more freedom" under new coach Adam Gase and his staff.

"I’m going to speak for Ryan right now, which I typically don’t do," Jennings said. "He wants some more freedom. He’s been hand-held his entire career." It's unclear if Tannehill will get it from Gase and new OC Clyde Christensen, as Jay Cutler reportedly only had "limited audible latitude" under Gase in Chicago this past season. Still, Gase figures to be great for Tannehill after the young quarterback was held under wraps by Joe Philbin and Bill Lazor.

Bengals signed CB Chykie Brown to a reserve/future contract.

Brown, the 2011 fifth-rounder of the Ravens, appeared in 46 games for the Ravens from 2011-2014 before he was waived midway through 2014 and claimed off waivers by the Giants. He didn't make it out of final cuts last summer and spent the season on the street. Brown will compete for a depth job.

Saints waived WR Seantavius Jones.

Jones was only due $600,000, so the Saints clearly didn't see much potential in him. Jones has spent the last two offseasons being talked up by Saints beat writers along with Brandon Coleman. Coleman flopped in his 2015 increased opportunity, while 23-year-old Jones (five snaps) barely saw the field.

Saints released LB Ramon Humber.

The move saves just under $1 million versus the cap. A backup linebacker and special teamer, Humber's salary was scheduled to be $901,000 in the final year of his contract. The 28-year-old is more worthy of minimum-salary work.
Feb 8 - 5:03 PM

Saints released LB David Hawthorne.

It frees up $2.25 million in cap room. 30-year-old Hawthorne was supposed to help New Orleans' run defense when GM Mickey Loomis signed him away from Seattle in 2012, but Hawthorne proved a mediocre run defender and was always a huge liability in coverage. He was severely overpaid the past several seasons.
Feb 8 - 5:02 PM

Saints released RG Jahri Evans.

The move saves $3.2 million in cap room. Evans, 32, had spent his entire career with the Saints, earning six Pro Bowl trips and four first-team All-Pro berths across ten seasons. Evans' body has begun to break down in recent years, however, most notably battling wrist and knee injuries. The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci reported last March that the Bills had interest in trading for Evans, so perhaps we'll see him resurface in Buffalo. Evans is coming off an okay-not-great season in New Orleans. He should have one or two years left as a capable NFL starter.

According to the police affidavit signed by alleged victim Colleen Crowley, Johnny Manziel beat and threatened to kill Crowley on January 29.

Manziel's ex-girlfriend, Crowley filed the affidavit as part of a request for a restraining order against Johnny Football. Crowley alleges Manziel hit her so hard he ruptured her eardrum and caused what's so far been permanent hearing loss in Crowley's left ear. Crowley also accuses Manziel of preventing her from leaving a Dallas hotel room and grabbing her by the hair and throwing Crowley into a vehicle. "Shut up or I'll kill us both," Manziel allegedly told Crowley at one point. Manziel and Crowley dated for two years and lived together for four months in Cleveland before the Dallas incident. Manziel agreed to the restraining order, which forbids him from seeing Crowley for two years. Police are still investigating whether Manziel should be arrested for domestic violence.

Seahawks signed CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste to a reserve/future contract.

The 58th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Jean-Baptiste flamed out quickly with the Saints and wasn't retained after a brief 2015 practice squad stint with the Lions. Turning 26 in April, Jean-Baptiste was viewed as a high-upside press corner prospect coming out of Nebraska at nearly 6-foot-3 and 218 pounds with a freakish 41 1/2-inch vertical. The Seahawks will try to coach up Jean-Baptiste, perhaps in hopes he becomes their next Brandon Browner.

Cal QB Jared Goff plans to throw at the Combine.

Throwing at the Combine has become an annual "will they or won't they?" with the draft's top quarterbacks, but Goff said he plans to do every drill. "I think it’s the right thing to do," Goff said. "I’ve got nothing to hide. Go out there and throw and have some fun." Goff still has time to change his mind, of course. As things stand now, Goff appears likely to be a top-10 pick.
Feb 8 - 3:20 PM

DeMarcus Ware says he isn't planning to retire.

Ware is going on 34 and missed five games with injury this season, but will keep going. "I got a lot of gas in the tank," Ware said Sunday evening. "I don't think about retiring. God still wants me to play, that's why I'm still doing what I'm doing." Headed into the final year of his contract, Ware is due $7 million, plus a $3 million roster bonus. With a number of key free agents, the Broncos could approach Ware about a restructure. Ware remained highly effective in 2015, notching 7.5 sacks in 11 games. He terrorized Cam Newton in Super Bowl 50, tallying 2.5 more quarterback takedowns.

Falcons released LB Justin Durant.

The ex-Cowboy started 12 games for the Falcons in 2015. He was sub-replacement level on the strong side, playing 661 ineffective snaps. His release creates $2.34 million in cap space. It's a no-brainer move for the Falcons. Durant turns 31 in September.
Feb 8 - 2:56 PM

Falcons released SS William Moore.

OLB Justin Durant has also been cut. The No. 55 overall pick of the 2009 Draft, Moore began his career as a playmaker, but has proven to be one of the most injury-prone players in football. He missed five games in 2015, and 29 over the past five years. Going on 31, his play has steadily eroded. The move clears up $3.2 million in cap space, but leaves behind $3.3 million in dead money. Moore could compete for a job next season, but shouldn't be signed as a starter.
Feb 8 - 2:56 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins will "definitely" move on from DE Quinton Coples.

Coples has a $7.8 million team option the Dolphins clearly aren't going to exercise. Coples' entire salary will come off the books. The ex-Jet played 78 snaps in five games as a Dolphin, failing to register so much as a tackle.
Feb 8 - 2:36 PM

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports police are seeking arrest warrants in the LeSean McCoy nightclub case.

McCoy, as well as ex-Charger Curtis Brinkley and two other men, are alleged to have severely beaten three off-duty police officers, hospitalizing two of them. The brawl apparently erupted after McCoy's group attempted to co-opt a bottle of champagne. The Bills are "aware" of the incident.
Feb 8 - 2:28 PM

Eagles released WR Riley Cooper.

The move is more than a year overdue. Cooper was one of the league's worst receivers in 2015, catching only 21 passes while diminishing as a blocker. Since averaging 17.8 yards per catch in 2013, Cooper has managed 11.9 yards per grab. He doesn't make plays. The transaction frees up $2.9 million in cap space. Going on 29, Cooper's phone won't be ringing off the hook. 49ers fans should be worried that coach Chip Kelly might want a reunion in San Francisco.
