Nick Foles said he expects to be the Eagles' starting quarterback in 2015.

"My expectation is to be out there and be the starting guy," Foles said. "I know there’s been a lot of things said, but the only thing I’m worried about is making myself the best player, the best person to help lead my team." Foles has insisted he will still be in Philadelphia next season, but his status with the team is still up in the air. He could conceivably be traded, benched or retained as starter this offseason. Foles is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton expects Carolina to extend TE Greg Olsen's contract before the 2015 season.

With Olsen able to become a free agent after the 2015 season, Newton expects the Panthers will try to get something done this summer rather than letting the situation drag into the season. After Olsen put up a career year in 2014, Carolina runs the risk of "buying high" on a player that will be 30-years-old when the season begins. Olsen has been extremely consistent over the last three seasons, however, and the aging curve for tight ends is usually less steep than other positions. A three- or four-year deal could make sense for both sides.

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians "desperately" wants Larry Fitzgerald to stay in Arizona.

"We definitely, desperately want him to stay," Arians said. "He knows that. It’s really his decision." With a massive $23.6 million cap figure for 2015, Fitzgerald's decision will be whether to take a pay cut to stay in Arizona or force the Cardinals to cut him before his $8 million roster bonus comes due in March. There is some growing optimism the two sides will work out a deal, but it remains a distinct possibility Fitzgerald will not be a Cardinal next season.

Impending free-agent TE Ed Dickson said he would like to re-sign with the Panthers.

"I want to be back with the team. I feel like we have some unfinished business," Dickson said. "Hopefully, we can work out a deal and get me back over there." On the back of a pitiful 10-115-1 campaign, Dickson will not find many suitors early in free agency. He will be cheap to retain, but the Panthers could do better.

Impending free agent Jeremy Maclin said he expects to be an Eagle next season.

"Both sides have made it known what we want to do," Maclin said. "I think it will take care of itself." The two sides were reportedly close to a deal near the end of the season, but the negotiations hit a snag when Maclin switched agents. If a long-term deal cannot be reached before free agency opens in March, the Eagles would likely use the franchise tag to keep Maclin off the open market.

Impending free-agent OT Eric Winston said there is mutual interest in him returning to the Bengals in 2015.

Signed in December, Winston started at right tackle for the final two games of the regular season and the Wild Card loss to the Colts. Winston was far from impressive in his short stint with Cincinnati, but he brings a ton of experience to the table and would be a solid swing tackle.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan expressed support for first-year QB Blake Bortles.

"I love Blake, and I think he’s a key building block moving forward," Khan said, adding he thought new OC Greg Olson is the person that can "unlock" Bortles' potential. Bortles' struggles contributed heavily to the firing of former OC Jedd Fisch following the season, and it seems Olson and new QBs coach Nathaniel Hackett were brought in for the express purpose of developing Bortles into a quality starting quarterback. That could be easier said than done, as Bortles struggled with decision-making and inconsistent accuracy during his rookie year. Bortles does have a ton of natural talent, and the likely return of Justin Blackmon should bolster what had been a poor wide receiver corps. Bortles at least has some upside for 2015.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor exited Friday's practice with a wrap on his left knee.

This is why he was added to the injury report and listed as probable. Per Super Bowl pool reporter Peter King, Chancellor missed the final rep of practice after falling near the goal line on the second to last play. The probable listing indicates the Seahawks aren't worried about Chancellor's availability for Sunday's matchup with Rob Gronkowski.

ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer believes impending free agent Dez Bryant is "destined" for the franchise tag.

Archer is one of the most plugged-in NFL beat reporters and has been anticipating Dez wearing Dallas' 2015 franchise tag since last summer. The price of the wide receiver tag is expected to be around $13 million. The Cowboys want to eventually lock up Bryant long term, but Archer "highly doubts" the sides will strike a deal before free agency opens on March 10.

Titans SS Bernard Pollard has requested to be released.

Entering the final year of his contract, Pollard is owed $3.1 million in 2015. He was playing at a high level before missing the final 11 games of the season with a torn Achilles' tendon. Pollard reportedly wants to play for a contender. 30-year-old Pollard is three months removed from surgery. The Titans would absorb just $425,000 in dead money by releasing him.

Richard Sherman (elbow) is listed as probable for Super Bowl XLIX.

Sherman is reportedly dealing with torn ligaments in his elbow, but didn't miss any practice time. His Super Bowl status was never in doubt. Earl Thomas (shoulder) is also listed as probable.

Patriots C Bryan Stork (knee) is listed as questionable for Super Bowl XLIX.

Stork has been limited in practice the last two weeks, but most signs point to him being ready for the Super Bowl. The Patriots need Stork healthy as they look to establish their power-run game against Seattle.

Jimmy Graham confirmed he'll avoid shoulder surgery.

Graham will attempt to rehab his shoulder injury after testing it at the Pro Bowl. He would have been sidelined six months had he needed surgery. Barring setbacks, Graham should be ready for OTAs
