The Jets declined OT Ben Ijalana's $500,000 option bonus on Monday, allowing Ijalana to hit free agency.

Exercising Ijalana's bonus would have triggered his $4.5 million base salary for 2018, something the team clearly didn't want to do with its swing tackle. 29-year-old Ijalana has value as someone who can play both tackle spots, but the Jets are preparing to offer everything under the sun to Kirk Cousins next month, and this frees up even more money. Ijalana could re-sign later.

The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person doesn't expect the Panthers to use the franchise tag on free agent LG Andrew Norwell.

Carolina has a ton of money tied up in its offensive line with LT Matt Kalil, C Ryan Kalil, and RG Trai Turner. Tagging Norwell would leave the Panthers on the hook for a guaranteed $14.3 million-ish, money they'd likely prefer to use elsewhere. Norwell, 26, is one of the top overall free agents available.

Bucs hired ex-Cardinals DL coach Brentson Buckner to the same position.

Buckner enjoyed a 12-year career before getting let go by the Panthers in 2006, ending his run as a player. He jumped into coaching a couple years later, landing the head coaching job at a local North Carolina high school. Buckner, 46, spent the last five seasons in Arizona as Bruce Arians' DL coach where he earned a reputation as one of the better DL coaches in the league.

The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson says it "would not be remotely surprising" if the Dolphins showed interest in C.J. Anderson should he be released by the Broncos.

The Dolphins signed Anderson to a four-year, $18 million deal as a restricted free agent in 2016, but the contract was matched by Denver. There is now speculation the Broncos will release Anderson, freeing up nearly $5 million to use in Denver's Kirk Cousins pursuit. Anderson has a Dolphins confidante in ex-Broncos OC Adam Gase and would form a committee with Kenyan Drake in Miami.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora "continues to hear" that LCB Marcus Peters "may not be long" for Kansas City.

La Canfora is not the first to mention a potential Peters trade, and he expects that chatter to "intensify" at the NFL Combine. The Chiefs were left in horrible salary-cap condition by fired GM John Dorsey and may not believe they can fit a forthcoming Peters extension onto their books. For 2018, however, Peters is signed for just $1.74 million. Ideally, the Chiefs would keep Peters for at least one more year, and perhaps revisit a trade next offseason.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport seconded an ESPN New York report that the Jets are "willing to pay a lot of money to Kirk Cousins, maybe more than anyone else."

Rapsheet also noted the Jets hired Jeremy Bates as offensive coordinator; Bates' system is similar to what Cousins ran in Washington. When discussing the Jets' competition for Cousins, Rapsheet first mentioned the Broncos, whom he expects to "go all in on a free agent quarterback." Rapsheet said the Cardinals are "in the mix as well," and to "keep an eye" on the Vikings.

The Lions are not expected to release Eric Ebron.

Ebron's fifth-year, $8.25 million option is guaranteed for injury only, but GM Bob Quinn has said Ebron will be back. His salary becomes guaranteed on the first day of the new league year. Ebron is coming off another uneven year but did play slightly better down the stretch. The No. 10 overall pick of the 2014 draft has posted more than 600 yards receiving only once.

The Charlotte Observer reports Julius Peppers is "leaning toward" returning for a 17th NFL season.

That's via a "source close to Peppers." Per the source, Peppers "doesn't want to commit to it yet." The Charlotte Observer believes that if Peppers does return, it will only be for the Panthers. Now 38, Peppers is recovering from surgery to repair a torn right labrum.
