Three NFL general managers said at the Senior Bowl that they would not trade for Broncos LCB Aqib Talib.

Per ESPN Broncos reporter Jeff Legwold, all three GMs said they believe Talib will eventually be released, making him an unrestricted free agent. The mere fact that the Broncos have made it public they want to deal Talib lowers his value. Turning 32 next month, Talib continued to play at an extremely high level in 2017, earning PFF's No. 15 overall cornerback grade among 120 qualifiers.

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.

ESPN's Jeff Darlington reports Rob Gronkowski has been thinking about retirement for "quite some time."

Darlington went on to say it isn't just a reaction to the Super Bowl loss or Gronk's recent concussion and that he's been considering it "long before both instances." It still seems likely that Gronk will return for the 2018 season, but as more reports continue to emerge, it wouldn't be surprising to see him retire.

Chiefs signed CB David Amerson to a one-year, $2.25 million contract.

Amerson can earn another $3.75 million through incentives. This, of course, is not the destination the Raiders would have picked. Amerson, 26, stays in the AFC West with Kansas City, which needs a starting right cornerback across from LCB Marcus Peters with Kendall Fuller in the slot. Amerson was a 2015 revelation in Oakland after a trade from Washington, then fizzled out immediately after signing a 2016 five-year, $34 million deal. On a one-year prove-it contract with the Chiefs, Amerson will have full motivation in 2018.

According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, ESPN is targeting Peyton Manning to replace Jon Gruden on Monday Night Football.

Per Marchand, ESPN is willing to "back up the truck" for Manning, though he's also being pursued by Fox as a color man for Thursday Night Football. Manning eventually sees himself in a John Elway role running football operations for an NFL team, but reportedly hasn't closed the door on broadcasting. ESPN is considering a complete overhaul of MNF and may even look to replace lead announcer Sean McDonough. Matt Hasselbeck served as a color analyst for ESPN's coverage of the Pro Bowl and may be the leading in-house candidate to replace Gruden should Manning pass on the job.

The Panthers have reinstated interim GM Marty Hurney.

Hurney was placed on paid leave for two weeks while the league looked into claims of harassment made by his ex-wife. After finding no evidence of wrongdoing, the NFL has closed its investigation and Hurney will return to his role as the team's interim GM. The Panthers have interviewed Hurney, Lake Dawson, Martin Mayhew and Jimmy Raye III for the permanent GM position, but may wait for new ownership to be in place before announcing a hire. Hurney is considered the favorite.

Free agent CB Vontae Davis is visiting the Browns on Friday.

Davis met with the Bills on Thursday and will continue his free agent tour with more visits next week. The two-time Pro Bowler struggled while battling injuries last year but wouldn't be a bad flyer for the Browns, who lead the league with over $110 million in cap space. Davis turns 30 in May.

Speaking on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Derek Carr admitted Amari Cooper wasn't healthy in 2017.

Cooper did miss a pair of games late in the year due to a concussion and a high-ankle sprain, but even before that, he never looked right. "He would never say it to you but I'll say it to you to have his back," said Carr. "That man was out there giving anything he could and honestly, a lot of guys probably wouldn't have played with what he had." Though he inexplicably scored a career-high seven touchdowns, Cooper's 48 catches and 680 receiving yards were both career-lows. He was also among the league leaders in drops with 10. Still just 23, Cooper will be a prime bounce-back candidate if he can stay healthy in 2018.
