The Cowboys could have interest in free agent Colt McCoy.

McCoy would be a low-cost option behind Tony Romo, but isn’t much of an upgrade on Kellen Moore. ESPN’s Todd Archer expects Dallas to add a backup through the draft.

ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker reports DT Earl Mitchell could be a cap cut.

Signed to a four-year, $16 million contract prior to the 2014 season, Mitchell has recorded two sacks and 55 tackles in 28 games with the Dolphins. He battled back and calf injuries last season and never settled in next to Ndamukong Suh. Miami can save $2.5 million against the cap by releasing Mitchell.

KBOI Boise reports Broncos S Shiloh Keo was arrested for driving under the influence early Saturday morning in Ada County, Idaho.

Keo was booked into the Ada County Jail at 2:19 a.m. Saturday morning. Keo played his college ball at the University of Idaho and still makes his home there in the offseason. A fifth-round pick of the Texans in 2011, Keo spent 2014 out of the league before latching on with the Broncos in December.

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner believes RG Rodger Saffold (shoulder) is a possible cap cut.

Saffold had his left shoulder surgically repaired last January and landed on injured reserve in October with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He is expected to be fully healed by mid-March, but his long injury history and below-average play make him a strong candidate to be cut. Saffold is set to count $5.65 million against the cap next season.

Broncos CB Aqib Talib was fined $26,044 for his conduct in the Super Bowl.

Talib racked up two personal fouls in the win including a dangerous play in which he grabbed and twisted Corey Brown down by his facemask. Talib admitted after he grabbed the facemask on purpose. The NFL was reportedly considering a suspension for the infraction, but this fine likely puts that possibility to bed. A repeat offender who was suspended for Week 10 after poking Colts TE Dwayne Allen in the eye, Talib is lucky to escape without a ban.

ESPN 710 Seattle's Jessamyn McIntyre reports impending free agent QB Tarvaris Jackson will test the open market.

McIntyre reports there was a "strong market" last season for Jackson, who took less money to come back to the Seahawks. Jackson has had several stints as a starter throughout his career, but he has proven to be a backup-level player. He has not started a game since 2011. Going on 33, continuing to hold the clipboard for Russell Wilson will likely be his best available option.

Browns LT Joe Thomas said he is "super excited" about new coach Hue Jackson.

"When we were going through the coaching search, he was the No. 1 guy that I was hoping we'd hire," Thomas said. "For Jimmy (Haslam) to be able to land Hue I think is a huge coup." The specter of another coaching change forced Thomas to openly wonder about his future with the organization in January, but he appears completely on board now. Thomas took home his sixth First-Team All-Pro honor last season and has not missed a snap in his nine-year career.

The Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota reports the Cowboys believe Byron Jones is best suited to play safety.

Jones was forced to play corner as a rookie because of injuries, but he was arguably the best cover guy on the team. Orlando Scandrick's return along with some reinforcements should allow Jones to primarily play safety, but Dallas should not let his coverage skills go to waste. Jones will likely continue to cover tight ends and slot receivers in sub packages.

The Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota said he "would be very surprised" if the Cowboys did not use one of their first three picks on a running back.

The No. 4 overall pick is too early to reach for a running back, but a runner could be in the Cowboys' plans in the second round. Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott has expressed his desire to play for Dallas, but he is unlikely to last that long. Alabama RB Derrick Henry could be an option in the second, and Arkansas RB Alex Collins could be available when the Cowboys pick in the third. Regardless of who the they go with, Darren McFadden should expect rookie company in the backfield next season.

ESPN's Field Yates reports S Nate Allen's one-year deal with the Raiders is worth $3 million.

$1.85 million of that is guaranteed, and Allen can earn $2 million more through incentives. He was originally scheduled to earn $4.9 million guaranteed before being released this week. Knee issues limited Allen to five games last season, but he should be 100 percent for the offseason program.

NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan reports it "seems inevitable" the Giants allow RCB Prince Amukamara to test the free-agent market.

Raanan reports the Giants have yet to approach Amukamara about a new deal. That could change before March, but New York appears content to let the oft-injured corner set his value on the market. Amukamara is reportedly looking to average $10 million annually. He's missed 13 games the past two seasons.

ESN Radio's Geoff Mosher reports the Eagles have yet to open contract negotiations with impending free agent S/CB Walter Thurmond.

The two sides are expected to talk at the Scouting Combine, but Thurmond has already admitted he chances of returning are slim. Thurmond shined in his first year as a safety and played 16 games for the first time in his career. A long injury history will ding his value, but the versatile defensive back should get plenty of interest on the open market.

In five-plus games as a rookie starter, Eagles RCB Eric Rowe earned Pro Football Focus' No. 94 coverage grade among 107 qualified cornerbacks.

Famously torched by Calvin Johnson on Thanksgiving, Rowe's play was uneven at best thereafter. From Week 12 (Thanksgiving) on, Rowe held his own against the Patriots and Bills before drawing negative PFF grades against Arizona, Washington, and the Giants in Philadelphia's final three games. A 2015 second-round pick, Rowe should face stiff competition to keep his starting job in 2016.
Feb 12 - 11:47 PM

A film study of Redskins ILB Will Compton by the Washington Post observed that Compton was a liability in run defense as a 2015 starter.

The Post's Mark Bullock did an extensive tape review of Compton, praising his communication skills but noting Compton was pedestrian in pass coverage and a big liability versus the run. Pro Football Focus agreed, giving Compton poor grades in pass rush, coverage, and especially run defense. An impending restricted free agent, Compton should return to the Redskins as a backup.

The Denver Post suggests Todd Davis could take over at inside linebacker if ILB Danny Trevathan walks in free agency.

24-year-old (in May) Davis was used sparingly on defense in 2015, but did excel in two games in which he got extended run, and also piled up seven tackles on special teams. Davis is a slightly better athlete than Trevathan, running 4.87 with a 35-inch vertical at 6-foot, 242 at Sacramento State's 2014 Pro Day. Trevathan showed a 31 1/2-inch vert with 4.84 speed, but at only 6-foot, 237 in 2012.
