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.

ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer has heard that "everything is coming along fine" in Cowboys WLB Sean Lee's ACL rehab.

Lee tore the ACL in 2014 OTAs. He hasn't had any setbacks and could be available for offseason workouts. The Cowboys' MIKE linebacker the past four years, Lee will move to the weak side in DC Rod Marinelli's scheme.

Kam Chancellor (knee) is listed as probable for Super Bowl XLIX.

Chancellor was added to the injury report Friday after getting in a limited practice. He's fully expected to play through his knee issue. Seattle also listed Richard Sherman (elbow) and Earl Thomas (shoulder) as probable.

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

Titans fired VP of Player Personnel Lake Dawson.

Dawson spent the last three years working under GM Ruston Webster, overseeing both pro and college scouting. He's considered a respected talent evaluator around the league, but has been part of a Titans front office that's gotten very little from free agency and the draft. Dawson was a GM finalist for multiple teams last year, and interviewed with the Bears this offseason.

Free agent S Da'Norris Searcy plans to test the open market.

A sub-package safety prior to this season, Searcy started 13 games opposite Aaron Williams. He showed improved cover skills with three interceptions, and should be able to land a multi-year deal. The Bills have Duke Williams as an in-house replacement for Searcy.

Vikings WLB Chad Greenway is open to restructuring his contract.

Greenway was one of the worst starting linebackers in the league this past year. He's due $8.8 million in salary and bonuses and will need to take a massive pay cut to return. The Vikings can save $7.1 million by releasing Greenway.

Matt Cassel has a $500,000 roster bonus due on March 17.

Cassel is slated to make $4.15 million in 2015. His contract is reasonable for a top backup, but the Vikings could avoid paying any further guaranteed money by cutting him. Cassel is four months removed from Lisfranc surgery and questionable to be ready for OTAs.

Vikings FB Jerome Felton is expected to void his contract, making him a free agent.

Felton has a $2.45 million player option for 2015. As the Vikings turned to a shotgun-heavy offense to suit Teddy Bridgewater, Felton's snaps were scaled back dramatically despite still-effective lead blocking when he's gotten the chance to play. He'd be a better fit on more of an I-formation team.

Jaguars owner Shad Khan stated Friday at the Super Bowl that he is "very optimistic" about the 2015 return of suspended WR Justin Blackmon.

"Absolutely," Khan stated vehemently. "As a matter of fact, I’m very optimistic. I think he’s paid his dues. I think he’s got his life together. I think he can be a role model for people who have gone through hard times. We’re waiting for him." Blackmon's return would be a huge boost to Jacksonville's wideout corps, which is dealing with Allen Robinson's foot fracture and Cecil Shorts' free agency. 25-year-old Blackmon is a run-after-catch machine with an ability to threaten the intermediate sections. He'd be a big upgrade on Shorts at Z receiver.

Peyton Manning met with new Broncos coach Gary Kubiak on Wednesday and team president Joe Ellis on Friday regarding his future plans.

He'll chat with GM John Elway shortly. Appearing at the Super Bowl, Manning reportedly appeared "relaxed" and "invigorated," and the Denver Post continues to expect him to play football in 2015. "I’d like to make a decision soon," Manning said in Arizona. "At the same time, coach and Joe and John have instructed me to take some time so I’m kind of following their orders."
