NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Bears new coach Matt Nagy is expected to retain DC Vic Fangio.

Spots are filling up, and the Packers have settled on Mike Pettine for their DC position, a spot Fangio was a contender for earlier Tuesday. Fangio won't have many other options if he doesn't go back to Chicago, though he's one of the best defensive play callers in the league. Things have gone best-case scenario for the Bears, getting young Nagy to hopefully be their version of Sean McVay, while Fangio and his No. 9 total defense appear to be staying in the Windy City.

The Dallas Morning News' David Moore expects the Cowboys to place the franchise tag on DE DeMarcus Lawrence.

Moore says the "goal" is to reach a long-term deal, but it is unlikely that happens before the March 6 deadline to apply the tag. Using the tag will give Dallas more time to negotiate, but it also guarantees Lawrence around $17.5 million for 2018, a number which could make long-term negotiations tricky. Lawrence exploded for 14.5 sacks in his contract year.

ESPN's Tim McManus reports the Eagles will interview RBs coach Duce Staley and WRs coach Mike Groh for their vacant offensive coordinator job.

McManus adds the team does not currently plan to interview anyone else. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Eagles would not promote anyone to coordinator, but these interviews suggest otherwise. That said, the Eagles could also make Staley the run-game coordinator with Groh as the pass-game coordinator, avoiding the OC title. Even if someone is promoted, coach Doug Pederson will continue to run the offense.

ESPN's Mike DiRocco expects the Jaguars to tag Allen Robinson if the two sides cannot work out a deal.

Robinson has been angling for a long-term deal through the media, saying he is close to full health and his ACL injury is "not really an issue," but DiRocco believes the Jaguars are looking for a "one-year, incentive-laden deal." The tag is expensive and does not contain any incentives, but it would give Jacksonville a year to make sure Robinson is back to full health before they invest long-term guaranteed money. Robinson will arguably be the top receiver available if he is allowed to hit the open market.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets are "willing to pay whatever it takes" to land Kirk Cousins.

MMQB's Peter King "guesses" Cousins will end up in Denver, but the Jets are certainly going to make a strong run at him. Working against the Jets is Cousins' reported desire to play for a team "with a good defense" where "he can win," but New York can point to their surprising success last year as evidence they are headed in the right direction. The Jets are projected to have over $70 million in cap space and can easily create more.

Impending free agent LeGarrette Blount said he "hopes" to re-sign with the Eagles.

Most free agents say the same, but Blount was effusive in his praise of the organization and coaching staff. "Obviously, I like it a lot there. They like me a lot there," Blount said. "I feel like [RBs coach Duce Staley] is one of the best running back coaches, one of the best coaches I’ve ever had in my entire life." Blount added Philadelphia "is a place that I love." The Eagles have salary cap concerns and a crowded backfield, but perhaps Blount will give them a home-town discount.

Texans informed ILB Brian Cushing of his release.

Cushing became an afterthought in Houston due to a PED suspension and the improved play of second-year linebackers Zach Cunningham and Dylan Cole. By releasing Cushing, the Texans will save $7.64 million. Cushing isn't nearly the same player he was once following multiple PED bans, but he is likely to resurface. New Titans coach Mike Vrabel coached Cushing in Houston, and Tennessee may lose ILB Avery Williamson in free agency.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the Jets view Bilal Powell as a "complementary back."

Cimini went on to say he believes that Powell will continue to share the workload with either Elijah McGuire or someone else they bring in. Despite Matt Forte likely to be cut, it doesn't look like Powell's workload will increase much if at all. His receiving upside leaves him in play as a late pick in 2018 fantasy drafts.

According to NFL draft insider Tony Pauline, the 49ers are one of several teams high on Oklahoma State WR Marcell Ateman.

The Niners struggled in the red zone last season, and Ateman (6'4/220) would add size in scoring position. Per Pauline, Ateman is likely to improve his stock at the Scouting Combine with a forty time in the 4.45 range and 40-plus-inch vertical after training with ex-Olympian Michael Johnson before the draft.

According to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings are expected to "consider" A.J. McCarron in free agency.

McCarron was granted free agency last week after winning his grievance against the Bengals. He'd likely be a fallback for the Vikings, who are also pursuing Kirk Cousins and Case Keenum. McCarron, who is expected to command up to $10 million annually, is also drawing interest from the Broncos, Browns, Cardinals and Jets.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms free agent Terrelle Pryor will be "on the Browns' radar" this offseason.

Pryor had his best season with Cleveland in 2016, leading the Browns in both catches (77) and receiving yards (1,007). He didn't fare as well in Washington but was obviously hampered by injuries including an ankle issue that eventually required surgery. Pryor would add to a Cleveland receiving corps already featuring Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman.

The MMQB's Albert Breer reports Kirk Cousins "will quickly file a grievance to block" the Redskins from franchising him.

The Redskins want to tag-and-trade Cousins, but the CBA prevents them from tagging him without any plans to sign him. Washington would also need to commit at least $28.7 million in cap space to keep Cousins from free agency, putting them in a bad leverage spot. Cousins remains likely to hit the open market this offseason, where he'll become one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the league. The Jets, Vikings, and Broncos are the top suitors for Cousins.
