ESPN Cleveland reports suspended WR Josh Gordon is confident he’ll be reinstated.

Commissioner Roger Goodell acknowledged Gordon has applied for reinstatement, but declined to update his status. The league has 60 days to make a decision on Gordon, so there should be clarity on him prior to the draft. Despite multiple off-field letdowns, Browns VP of football operations Sashi Brown is open to keeping Gordon if reinstated.

Redskins president Bruce Allen said the team has opened extension talks with free agent Kirk Cousins.

"We’ve had discussions with his representative," Allen said. "We feel good. Kirk wants to be a Washington Redskin. It will work itself out." Cousins is likely targeting an Alex Smith-type deal after throwing for 4,166 yards and leading the league in completion percentage. Franchising Cousins would cost around $19.7 million.

Panthers WLB Thomas Davis (arm) is listed as probable for the Super Bowl.

Coach Ron Rivera already confirmed Davis will start. Despite being just two weeks removed from surgery, Davis should play his normal snaps.

Broncos safeties T.J. Ward (ankle) and Darian Stewart (knee) were upgraded to probable for the Super Bowl.

The Broncos listed them as questionable on last week's injury report. Both will start after practicing in full the last two days. Chris Harris (shoulder) is also probable.

Archie and Eli Manning think switching teams could be a deal breaker for Peyton Manning.

"He had some offers last year from teams, some teams talked to him," said Archie. "But I think that was going to be a lot of drama, again, to change teams, that he didn't want to go through. He did do that once, so I don't know that he would want to do that." Eli agreed that playing for a different team would be "tough" for Peyton. All signs are pointing to Sunday being Peyton's last game. Even if the Broncos are interested in keeping him, which seems unlikely, it's doubtful Manning would put himself through another year of wear and tear after missing six games to injury this season.

Lions president Rod Wood is hoping to introduce Calvin Johnson to GM Bob Quinn sometime next week.

Wood said he's kept in touch with Johnson, exchanging texts as recently as Wednesday. Johnson hasn't officially announced his retirement yet and the Lions are hoping a sit-down with Quinn will help him change his mind. If Megatron does return in 2016, the Lions will likely have to re-work his contract.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam said the team has reached out to Johnny Manziel "several times" without a response.

"We're not worried about Johnny Manziel the football player, we're worried about Johnny Manziel the person," said Haslam. Manziel's life is spiraling out of control. He was dropped by his agent on Friday and has reportedly refused to go to rehab despite his family's insistence. The most ominous quote came from Manziel's father, who told the Dallas Morning News, "I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday." Manziel is living in denial right now and needs to get help immediately.

Jets signed LB Freddie Bishop to a two-year contract.

He visited seven teams before signing. Bishop was a stud in the CFL, winning a Grey Cup with Calgary in 2014. Bishop joined the Lions in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of Western Michigan but was cut after OTAs.

Jets signed K Kyle Brindza to a reserve/future contract.

Brindza made just 6-of-12 field goals before the Buccaneers cut him in October, though he drilled a a 58-yarder in Week 3. Randy Bullock filled in at kicker for the Jets after Nick Folk missed the final eight games with a quad injury.

Roger Goodell announced the Texans will play the Raiders on Monday Night Football November 21 in Mexico City.

The NFL hasn't had a regular season game in Mexico since 2005 when the Cardinals defeated the 49ers in front of 103,467 fans at Azteca Stadium. Like all Monday night games, Texans/Raiders will be broadcast on ESPN. The NFL will have four international games this year: one in Mexico and three in London.

Former Lions RB Mikel Leshoure has signed with the CFL's BC Lions.

The former second-round pick hasn't appeared in a game since 2013. He showcased for teams at last year's Veteran Combine but didn't get any bites. Leshoure is still just 25 but it looks like his NFL ship has sailed.

Buccaneers GM Jason Licht sees Kevin Pamphile as Logan Mankins' eventual replacement at left guard.

"He’s done so many things for us from playing the tight end role as a blocker, swing tackle and he filled in for Logan at guard," said Licht. "That’s where we think his future is." Mankins turns 34 in March and is entering the last year of his deal. Pamphile spent time at three different positions last year including right tackle and guard. His only start came in Week 5 when Mankins was injured.

Free agent RB Montee Ball was arrested Friday morning in Madison, Wisconsin following an altercation with his girlfriend.

Police were called to Ball's hotel around 3:40 a.m. after he allegedly pushed his girlfriend into a table. "The woman told police she had a dispute with her boyfriend," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain. "She said he put his hands on her, picked her up and threw her." The woman reportedly suffered a cut that required stitches. Ball was taken to Dane County Jail on a tentative charge of "substantial battery." Ball spent time on New England's practice squad late last year, but didn't see any game action and was rumored to be significantly out of shape. It's quite possible Ball's NFL career is over.

Impending free agent LT Donald Penn doesn't plan to give the Raiders a hometown discount.

Penn compared himself to HBO, saying he's played at a "promotional price" but now the Raiders will have to pay "full price for the shows they love." Penn might not be on Game of Thrones level, but he was still one of the better tackles in football last year and should get a nice payday on the open market. Cordy Glenn, Russell Okung and Kelvin Beachum are a few other big-name tackles in this year's free agent class.

No quarterback has been sacked more than Ryan Tannehill since 2012.

Between Miami's coaching instability and underachieving offensive line, it's easy to see why Tannehill took a 2015 step back. Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas were two of the worst guards in football, while Jason Fox was a nightmare filling in for injured RT Ja’Wuan James. Only Blake Bortles (52) and Aaron Rodgers (46) were sacked more than Tannehill (45) in 2015.
