Broncos LT Ryan Clady is expected to be one of the main beneficiaries of new coach Gary Kubiak's offense.

Kubiak is a proponent of the zone-blocking system that excels with athletic linemen like Clady. It's the same system Clady played when the Broncos drafted him 12th overall in the 2008 draft. The Broncos have become more of a power offense with Peyton Manning under center. Kubiak will implement more ZBS concepts than ex-OC Adam Gase. Clady was PFF's 41st-ranked tackle in 2014.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have "privately indicated" they'd like to re-sign impending free agent TE Charles Clay.

This comes as no real surprise as Clay and DT Jared Odrick are Miami's top two free agents. Clay is coming off a down year where he fought through a season-long knee injury. It should help lower his price. Clay is one of the more versatile finesse tight ends in the league with the ability to line up in the backfield.

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts remain one of the "frontrunners" to sign CFL WR Duron Carter.

Carter is very interested in signing with the Colts, but reportedly has concerns about immediate playing time. Long-term, we could see T.Y. Hilton as the Colts' slot receiver, with Donte Moncrief playing the X spot and Carter at the Z. The Vikings are also in the mix to sign Carter, who can't ink a deal until February 10.

The Detroit Free Press believes Ryan Broyles is down to his last chance to make the Lions this offseason.

Broyles, the 54th pick in the 2012 draft, tore his ACL as a rookie and ruptured his Achilles' as a sophomore before being active for only five games this past season. He caught just two passes for 25 yards as the No. 5 receiver. Broyles will turn 27 in April. He's not even worth holding onto in deeper Dynasty leagues.

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. After a dismal 2013 campaign, Beatty flourished in first-year OC Ben McAdoo's quick-hitting 2014 passing attack, grading out as a top-12 left tackle in Pro Football Focus' grades. He was PFF's No. 14 overall tackle.

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, 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.

PFF graded Walton as one of the worst starting centers in the league this past year. He's owed $2.5 million in salary and bonuses. Releasing Walton would allow 2014 second-rounder Weston Richburg to start at center.
