The Indianapolis Star expects Dwayne Allen to depart in free agency.

Allen was used extensively as a blocker in 2015, drawing only 29 targets. He caught all of 16 passes after scoring eight touchdowns in 2014. Per reporter Zak Keefer, Allen's "frustration was evident." For what it's worth, Allen has said he'd like to re-sign with the Colts, though ESPN's Mike Wells also considers it unlikely. New OC Rob Chudzinski frequently features tight ends, so the Colts will likely at least make a reasonable attempt to keep Allen.

Ex-Ravens RB Anthony Allen has signed with the CFL's BC Lions.

A 2011 seventh-rounder, Allen hasn't appeared in the NFL since 2012. He was cut from the Bills' 90-man roster early in the 2014 offseason. Going on 28, Allen's NFL days are long through.

The Raiders have signed a one-year lease to remain in Oakland's O.Co Coliseum for the 2016 season.

The band aid deal gives the Raiders an official 2016 home as they shop around for a long-term solution. Las Vegas is the latest relocation rumor du jour, but Los Angeles could end up Oakland's most likely home for 2017. If the Chargers work out a deal in San Diego, the Raiders will be Hollywood bound.

CSN Philly reports Philadelphia authorities won't make a decision on issuing arrest warrants in the LeSean McCoy assault case until next week.

The longer McCoy goes without getting charged, the better. Beyond a potential one or two game suspension, McCoy's 2016 status doesn't appear to be under a cloud.

Free agent OG Jahri Evans refused a pay cut before his release from the Saints, and plans to continue playing in 2016.

"He's healthy and hungry and looking forward to the next chapter of his career," Evans' agent said. Evans has grown increasingly injury prone, while his effectiveness has waned going on age 33. He'll likely be penciled in as a starter wherever he ends up, but could have to cement his status in training camp.

Raiders re-signed S Nate Allen.

Allen's release ended up being a procedural move. His original $4.9 million salary was set to become guaranteed on Wednesday, an untenable sum for a methodically declining player who missed 11 games with a knee issue in 2015. The terms of the new agreement are unclear. Allen will be in the mix for a starting job, but it's far from a guarantee.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer expects the Browns to take a quarterback at No. 2 overall.

Beat writer Mary Kay Cabot expects the Browns to take a signal caller "unless something unforeseen happens in free agency" or a trade. As in, the team lands an acceptable starter. That's highly unlikely in this year's market. Cabot expects the Browns' choice to come down to North Dakota State's Carson Wentz or Cal's Jared Goff. All of this was said with the caveat that it remains very early in the process. Neither Wentz nor Goff are viewed as slam dunk top 10 picks at the moment. A "highly-respected personnel man" told the paper last month that the Browns should take Wentz.

C.J. Anderson believes he can be a bell-cow back.

"Oh, I know that’s something I can do," Anderson said Thursday. "You know, we chose to go the two-back route. ... But I mean if they want me to touch the ball 25 times, 27 times, 28 times, either way, whether it’s all carries or carries and catches, I believe I can handle it always." Anderson proved that down the stretch in 2014, where he handled truly monstrous workloads, and again in Super Bowl 50, where he touched the ball 27 times. Denver's insistence on mixing in a monumentally ineffective Ronnie Hillman after Anderson returned to full health was baffling. We'd expect Anderson, who is a restricted free agent, to return to Denver as the obvious starter.

Texans owner Bob McNair believes the team needs to "get our running game going again."

"We'll be working on those things," McNair said. The Houston Chronicle expects the Texans to move on from Arian Foster, who is due $6.5 million after tearing his Achilles'. Cutting Foster would create $6.625 million in cap space. It would be a sensible move, but the Texans lack an heir apparent on their current roster.

Texans owner Bob McNair is adamant that the team must improve at quarterback.

"There are a number of ... college quarterbacks coming out and I think we have a good chance at getting one of them," McNair said. "There are four or five of them who look like they have enough talent and size and athletic ability. I don't know any reason why we wouldn't be able to do it." The Texans pick at No. 22 overall. Rotoworld's Josh Norris has them taking Cal QB Jared Goff in his latest mock draft. The Texans met with North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz at the Senior Bowl, and have "made inquiries" about Memphis' Paxton Lynch.

Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict's three-game suspension for violating the league's policy on player safety has been upheld.

Burfict's ban was a candidate for reduction because it was so harsh, but the NFL has (rightfully) decided the punishment still fits the crime. Burfict was out of control late in the season, boiling over in a shameful display in the Wild Card round. He earned his ban the hard way. Absent a Bengals bye, he'll return in Week 4.

The Tennessean's John Glennon said it is "hard to imagine" Titans DE Ropati Pitoitua back with the team in 2016.

Owed a $3 million salary and set to count $3.8 million against the cap, Pitoitua played just 30 snaps last season. Tennessee does not need the cap space, but it does not make much sense to keep a high-priced player who cannot even crack the defensive line rotation. With Jurrell Casey and DaQuan Jones at defensive end, the Titans have underrated talent along the defensive line.

Giants hired Martin Mayhew as director of football operations/special projects.

Mayhew served as the Lions general manager for eight seasons before being fired last November. He was passed over for the Titans and Browns general manager jobs this offseason. The Giants are attempting to rebuild their personnel department after fielding one of the worst rosters in the league last season.

ESPN's James Walker and Coley Harvey report Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict will meet with Roger Goodell within the next week to discuss his three-game suspension.

Burfict earned the well-deserved ban for multiple questionable hits in the Wild Card loss to the Steelers, including a personal foul against Antonio Brown which cost the Bengals the game. Burfict will likely angle for a reduction to the suspension. Considering his reckless history, a reduction seems unlikely.
Feb 11 - 12:26 PM

CSN New England's Tom E. Curran believes Patriots MLB Jerod Mayo (torn pec) is "likely" to be a cap cut.

Mayo, 30, has ended three of the last four seasons on injured reserve. With Dont'a Hightower and Jamie Collins set to land big extensions in the near future, it does not make much sense to keep Mayo on the books. Mayo is owed a $4.5 million roster bonus March 9. He will likely be released before then.
