ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss thinks it is unlikely impending free agent Stevan Ridley returns to New England.

The Patriots are in need of running back help, and Ridley was drafted by the Patriots and had his best seasons in New England. The pair divorced for a reason last offseason, however, and an unsuccessful stint with the Jets likely did not change Ridley's opinion on his potential workload with the Patriots. Ridley will likely find a cold market in a loaded running back class, but a reunion remains unlikely.

Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt said the team will "do everything we can" to re-sign impending free agent FS Eric Berry.

"Certainly, Eric is somebody that’s very important to the franchise," Hunt said. "Coach (Andy) Reid and his staff think highly of him. They appreciate the leader that he’s become, and obviously personally, he had the amazing year overcoming cancer." Berry confirmed the two sides have opened contract negotiations, but he said the situation is in his "agent's hands." The Chiefs have six defensive starters set to become free agents, but Berry is clearly the top priority.

Free agent TE Ben Watson has been in talks with the Saints.

"I had a good conversation with Sean (Payton) and Mickey (Loomis)," Watson said. "I’d love to be playing there. If not there, we’ll see where else. I think I’ll know more in about a month." Coming off a career year, Watson expects to return for at least one more season. 35-year-old Watson could be willing to settle for a one-year deal.

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, so there should be clarity on Gordon 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 contract 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 $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.
Feb 5 - 5:19 PM

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

The Broncos listed them 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.
