Lions hired ex-Boston College DL coach Paul Pasqualoni as defensive coordinator.

Pasqualoni, 68, hired new Lions coach Matt Patricia as a graduate assistant back at Syracuse in 2001. Pasqualoni was the head coach there for 15 seasons. He last coached in the NFL as the Texans' DL coach in 2015 and was at BC the past two years. Patricia will almost certainly run the defense.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Steelers are fully expected to use the franchise tag on Le'Veon Bell ahead of the March 6 deadline.

Both sides seem ready to finally hammer out a long-term deal, but the franchise tag will buy time to do it. Fowler reports the Steelers have already budgeted the $14.5 million tag into their salary cap plan for free agency. The deadline for franchise tagged players to sign long-term deals is July 16.

Bucs released DT Chris Baker.

Baker signed a "three-year, $15.75 million" contract last March but was a huge disappointment his first year in Tampa. The Tampa Bay Times reported in December that both teammates and coaches had questioned Baker's effort. Baker faced similar questions with the Redskins. His entire $4.875 million cap hit comes off the books. Baker, who notched 0.5 sacks in 15 games in 2017, turns 31 in October.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports impending free agent Adam Vinatieri plans to continue his career in 2018.

Vinatieri basically said as much last month, but the report confirms he has not changed his mind. The veteran said he would like to return to the Colts, but he sounded like he is also open to a move. Vinatieri has spent the last 12 seasons in Indianapolis after spending 10 seasons with the Patriots.

Bears released ILB Jerrell Freeman.

This fully expected move will save Chicago $3.5 million against the cap. Freeman played well his first season with the Bears, but he missed four games because of a PED suspension and picked up another 10-game ban last year, the final two games of which he will have to serve in 2018. He is also set to turn 32 in May and is coming off a torn pectoral. Even so, Freeman is good enough to get a look from teams in need of linebacker help.

Eagles promoted WRs coach Mike Groh to offensive coordinator.

The Eagles also interviewed RBs coach Duce Staley for the job, but they are going with Groh. It may not mean much in the grand scheme of things as Doug Pederson will continue to run the offense while both Groh and Staley have big roles in game-planning, but it is a big career step for Groh, whose only other coordinating experience came at Virginia in the mid-2000s.

Bucs released Doug Martin.

This move, which saves Tampa Bay $6.75 million against the cap, was fully expected following two seasons marred by injury, suspension, and ineffectiveness. Martin was an All-Pro as recently as 2015, however, and just turned 29 in January. He would be a good get for running-back needy teams on a one-year, incentive-laden deal. For the Bucs, Peyton Barber played reasonably well down the stretch last season, but they will be on the lookout for help this spring, especially with Charles Sims headed to free agency.

Free agent CB Vontae Davis is meeting with the 49ers Tuesday.

He met with the Bills and Browns last week. Davis struggled while dealing with injuries each of the last two seasons, but he is only 30 (in May) and was a Pro Bowler in 2015. He would be a quality flier for the 49ers.

The New York Post's Brian Costello was told the Jets could offer Kirk Cousins $60 million in the first year of his contract.

New York is reportedly "willing to pay whatever it takes" to land Cousins, so this does not come as a surprise. It also makes some sense for the Jets, who have the cap space to both front-load the contract and make moves to improve the rest of the roster. The Broncos, Vikings, and Cardinals are also teams to watch in the Cousins sweepstakes.

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.

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.
