The Denver Channel's Troy Renck believes the Broncos "haven’t closed the door" on Tony Romo.

A previous report suggested it’s the Texans or retirement for Romo. The Broncos aren’t going to trade Dallas anything, but aren’t ruling out signing Romo if/when he becomes a free agent. Houston remains Romo's most likely landing spot.

The New York Post reports there’s a "good shot" free agent DT Johnathan Hankins re-signs with the Giants.

Hankins is holding out for a multi-year contract, but hasn't come close to his $8 million-plus asking price. The Giants cleared some cap space after extending Jason Pierre-Paul ($9 million) and getting pay cuts from Dwayne Harris and Shane Vereen. Returning on a prove-it deal could be Hankins' best chance at cashing in next offseason.

Cowboys signed G/T Byron Bell, formerly of the Titans.

The Cowboys needed some help up front after losing Doug Free (retired) and Ronald Leary (signed with Denver). Bell also visited the 49ers and Packers before choosing Dallas. Bell could be an option to replace Free at right tackle. He spent all of last season on injured reserve after disclosing his left ankle at OTAs.

According to ESPN's Jeff Darlington, Tony Romo believes his options for 2017 are retiring or playing for the Texans.

Darlington said the Broncos haven't "closed the door" on Romo but aren't actively pursuing him. Romo ending up in Houston seemed like a forgone conclusion when the Texans traded Brock Osweiler to Cleveland, but no progress has been made. With Romo still stranded in Dallas, it's possible he could leave to pursue a career in broadcasting. Romo has been offered gigs with Fox Sports and CBS. All we know for sure is that Romo is done in Dallas.

Panthers signed QB Garrett Gilbert to a one-year contract.

Gilbert spent a week on the Raiders' practice squad last season. He'll give the Panthers a camp arm with Cam Newton sidelined from shoulder surgery.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tony Romo is drawing interest as a television analyst for Fox Sports and CBS.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King hinted that Romo turned down a "very good" television offer a few weeks ago. The Cowboys are still holding out hope of trading Romo, though the Broncos and Texans seem to have called their bluff. Injuries and the emergence of Dak Prescott have limited the 36-year-old to just five appearances over his last two seasons.

Restricted free agent DE Jacquies Smith visited the 49ers on Friday.

The Bucs tendered Smith at the original round level. If Smith signs an offer sheet elsewhere and the Bucs decline, Tampa Bay won't receive any draft pick compensation because Smith was undrafted. The 27-year-old missed all but one game last year after tearing his ACL in the Bucs' season opener.

Bengals re-signed DE Wallace Gilberry.

Gilberry signed with the Bengals in November after being cut by Detroit a month earlier. The 32-year-old recorded 2.5 sacks over 266 snaps. He gives the Bengals some depth behind edge rushers Carlos Dunlap and Michael Johnson.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan declined to say whether the team would pick up SS Calvin Pryor's fifth-year option for 2018.

That means he's probably a goner after this year. Pryor arrived in New York with huge expectations but has been a colossal bust, grading out as PFF's No. 87 safety out of 91 qualifiers in 2016. ESPN's Rich Cimini previously suggested the Jets could look to trade Pryor, but we imagine interest would be scant.
Mar 24 - 2:44 PM

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan wouldn't commit to Josh McCown as the team's starting quarterback.

Maccagnan said that decision will be made by coach Todd Bowles. He added that it's "highly unlikely" the Jets will add another quarterback in free agency but acknowledged that drafting one is a possibility. McCown is still the odds-on favorite to start but it's a near certainty that his body will break down at some point. That would open the door for Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg to make starts later in the year.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports free agent Adrian Peterson is looking for $8 million in the first year of his new contract.

He can keep dreaming. That would make Peterson the third highest-paid running back in the league behind Le'Veon Bell and LeSean McCoy. Previous reports have suggested teams are reluctant to pay Peterson even $5 million annually, making his $8 million asking price downright laughable. Aging, fragile and fumble-prone, Peterson's stock has never been lower.

Free agent FB Will Johnson recently visited the Jets and Falcons.

Johnson missed all of last season with nerve trouble in his shoulder. He's a competent blocker when healthy and also has some experience as a ball carrier.

Vikings waived DE Scott Crichton.

Crichton was waived last summer and placed on injured reserve after clearing waivers. The 2014 third-round pick never panned out in Minnesota, logging just 147 snaps over 21 appearances.
Mar 24 - 2:01 PM

Panthers GM Dave Gettleman said Michael Oher remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Oher has been in the protocol for six months but seems to be progressing. He's been active in the weight room, working out at the Panthers' facility five times a week. "His workouts right now are not for the faint of heart," said Gettleman. "He’s down there grunting like everybody else." Oher still has a long road to recovery but at least it looks like he's heading in the right direction.
Mar 24 - 1:49 PM

Saints TE Josh Hill (leg) is expected to resume running soon.

Per Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate, Hill is "progressing well" in his recovery from a broken fibula. Hill probably won't be ready for OTAs but should be fine by training camp. Coby Fleener remains the lead tight end in New Orleans, though Hill was starting to cut into his workload before he got hurt last year.
