Colts re-signed K Adam Vinatieri to a one-year contract.

Vinatieri had made it clear he wanted to return for his 23rd season, so it was really only a matter of time. The future Hall of Famer will enter the season just 57 points behind Morten Andersen on the All-Time points list, a gap he should be able to close if he stays healthy -- he notched 109 last season.

CBS Sports' Joel Corry believes Titans contract-year LT Taylor Lewan will command more than $13 million on his next deal.

Trent Williams currently leads the market in guarantees ($41.25 million) while Russell Okung is best in average salary ($13.25 million). Corry, a former agent, believes the Titans will likely need to top both numbers to get something done with the 2014 first-round pick. Lewan is set to earn $9.341 million in the final year of his rookie deal.

Davis Webb said he has made his case as a future starter to both GM Dave Gettleman and coach Pat Shurmur.

Webb was taken in the third round just last year, but both the general manager and coach who selected him are gone, putting him in a tough spot. "I had a conversation with Mr. Gettleman and kind of told him how I felt and my abilities as a quarterback," Webb said. "I think there are enough people around the facility that believe in me and believe in my work ethic and believe in my ability to play quarterback one day for this franchise." The Giants could look to grab a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick, a move which would send Webb to the roster bubble, but with Eli Manning sticking around, a quarterback would not do much to help a roster set up for a quick rebound.

The PhillyVoice's Jimmy Kempski believes the Eagles will let impending free agent CB Patrick Robinson walk.

Signed to just a one-year, $1 million contract last season, Robinson put together a career year for the Super Bowl champs. Set to turn 31 in September, Robinson is certainly looking to cash in, and the Eagles simply do not have the cap space to dole out a big deal. Robinson is likely looking for north of $7 million a year.

New Vikings OC John DeFilippo said his offensive system is "flexible."

Talking about Minnesota's quarterback options, DeFilippo said he will adapt his offense to whatever happens at the position. "I spend a lot of time on really getting to know what our players do well so we can put them in the best position to succeed," DeFilippo said. "We’ll never try to ask our players to do something he can’t do well." The coordinator had good things to say about both Case Keenum and Sam Bradford, but he kept his cards close to the vest. The Vikings are also expected to be interested in Kirk Cousins.

Impending free agent K Matt Bryant said the Falcons have said they want to re-sign him.

"From my understanding, there have been several calls that have said we're going to get something done," Bryant said. "So, wanting me back, that's what they've told my agent." Bryant will turn 43 in May, but he did not show any signs of slowing down last season, hitting 87 percent of his kicks including 8-of-9 from 50 yards or more. Bryant is likely looking for north of $3 million a year.

The Saints and free agent Drew Brees will meet at the NFL Combine to discuss a short-term deal.

This year's Combine will be held February 27 until March 5, so it's just under a week away. Per NFL Network's Rapoport, the expectation is Brees will not try to "break the bank" by looking to become the NFL's highest-paid quarterback, which he conceivably could do. Instead, Brees is expected to seek $20-25 million annually, less than Jimmy Garoppolo's $27.5 million per year from the 49ers.

Andrew Luck (shoulder) has begun throwing weighted footballs and is reportedly "full steam ahead" for 2018.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport went as far as to say Luck's shoulder is "fine," and that the problems now involve "parts around Luck's shoulder," which to us just confirms Luck's throwing arm remains problematic. It's worth remembering that at this time last year the Colts were promising Luck would be ready for Week 1, and even activated him from the PUP list last September, giving off the impression he'd at last play at some point in the first six games. He wound up never playing a snap.

Broncos QB Chad Kelly has been working out with former Giants QB Phil Simms in advance of his first NFL season.

Last year's Mr. Irrelevant, Kelly missed his rookie season with wrist and knee injuries. He was declared fully health following the year. A favorite of Rookie Scouting Portfolio's Matt Waldman coming out of Ole Miss, Kelly showed NFL-caliber tools in college but struggled with off-field issues and health. As Trevor Siemian is limited and Paxton Lynch continues to look like a bust, Kelly is arguable the most talented quarterback on Denver's current roster. Kelly is the nephew and godson of Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly.

The Ravens aren't expected to re-sign free agent LG James Hurst.

Hurst started all 16 games for the first time in his career last season, but he graded out as one of the worst guards in the league. With Alex Lewis and Marshal Yanda returning from injury, Baltimore can move on from him. The Ravens are also expected to let Ryan Jensen test free agency.

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

Jeffery is out at least six months after rotator cuff surgery. He'll likely spend all of training camp and the preseason on the active/PUP list, but most signs point to him being back for the start of the season. The missed time could be a concern given Jeffery's history of conditioning issues and setbacks. The Eagles are counting on Jeffery to stay healthy after signing him to a four-year, $52 million extension.

Patriots DT Alan Branch plans to continue playing in 2018.

Branch is coming off a down year, playing in just 12 games (six starts) and sitting out the postseason as a healthy scratch. He's owed a $1 million roster bonus on the first day of the new league year and likely won't be brought back. The Patriots can save $3.5 million from releasing Branch.

The Bengals are unlikely to re-sign free agent Tyler Eifert.

The Cincinnati Enquirer believes the Bengals would only want Eifert back on an incentive-based one-year contract. Eifert is recovering from multiple surgeries, but he's only 27 and was a Pro Bowler as recently as 2015. He could get a better than expected deal this offseason if he proves he's healthy.

The Cincinnati Enquirer expects the Bengals to upgrade on TE Tyler Kroft.

Kroft set career highs in place of Tyler Eifert last year, but his production was more volume based than a true breakout. The Bengals run a tight end heavy scheme and may look to push Kroft back into a No. 2 role. Jimmy Graham, Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Trey Burton are the top free agents available this offseason.

Beat writer Hays Carlyon doesn't expect the Jaguars to be able to re-sign impending free agent CB Aaron Colvin.

Outside CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye get all the love in Jacksonville, but Colvin is one of the best slot corners in the game and is/was a big part of the Jaguars' defense. Per Pro Football Focus, Colvin didn't allow a single touchdown in his coverage, and his 0.76 yards per snap in coverage was third-best among all slot corners. Colvin, 26, is one of the top corners set to hit the market.
