Eagles second-year WR Josh Huff has been working on his release off the line and footwork this offseason.

Huff has been working with his cousin, Rischad Whitfield, nicknamed "The Footwork King" thanks to his work with Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, and others. Huff (5'11/206) was easy to jam at the line as a rookie on his way to an unimpressive 8-98-0 receiving line that included four drops. He has potential to develop into a No. 2 receiver, but the Eagles still need help outside.

The Steelers are still planning to play 2015 without SS Troy Polamalu.

Pittsburgh remains hopeful Polamalu hangs up the cleats and retires so it doesn't have to release him. To this point, however, the 34-year-old has been quiet. Mike Mitchell is expected to move to strong safety with Shamarko Thomas or a rookie taking over next to him. Alabama S Landon Collins is an option.

ESPN Bucs reporter Pat Yasinskas believes Doug Martin can be had for a mid-round draft pick.

At this point, the Bucs would probably love a mid-rounder. Realistically, coming off two unimpressive seasons, Martin likely wouldn't bring back more than a late-round selection. He's already 26 and has been injury-prone the past two years. The Bucs are a candidate to address running back early in the draft.

Free agent OLB Dwight Freeney is suing Bank of America for $20 million.

Freeney blames the bank's wealth management division for swindling him out of his money, forcing him to close an upstart Hollywood restaurant. Freeney alleges the scheme began in 2010. As for Freeney's football future, he's drawn zero-known interest since the Chargers informed him he won't be re-signed.

After announcing he'd found a new team on Twitter on Tuesday, free agent Greg Jennings ultimately signed with nobody.

It was Jennings' lame attempt at an April Fools' Day joke. Much like Jennings' free-agent "market," there's nothing to see here. Old, slow, and small, nobody is beating down the door to offer Jennings a starting job.

Cowboys re-signed MLB Rolando McClain to a one-year, $3 million contract.

Another $1 million is available through incentives. McClain, the former No. 8 overall pick and twice-retired 25-year-old, had a big season for the Cowboys in 2014. He graded out as PFF's No. 8 inside linebacker, showing well both against the run and in pass coverage. McClain will man the middle for Dallas this season, allowing Sean Lee to kick outside to the WILL spot.

Robert Mathis (Achilles') said he hopes to play during the preseason.

Mathis is eyeing a return to the field for the start of training camp, but admits rehab from a torn Achilles' has been "slow." It's a tough injury for anyone yet alone a 34-year-old. There's a chance he opens the season on reserve/PUP.

Lions OC Joe Lombardi said he's counting on second-year TE Eric Ebron being the No. 3 weapon on offense behind Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate.

This is nothing new, but Lombardi is just the latest in a long line of Lions higher-ups to sing Ebron's praises this offseason. Since the season ended, Ebron has been making routine flights to Atlanta to work side-by-side with Matthew Stafford. Everyone involved is expecting a big jump from Ebron.

The Dolphins confirm free agent RB Stevan Ridley visited on Tuesday.

It could be an indication the Dolphins are keen to sign the ex-Patriot, but it could just as easily mean nothing. Paramount for Ridley on his visits will be the state of his knee as he recovers from a torn ACL.

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak expects Fred Jackson and LeSean McCoy to rotate as Buffalo's third-down back.

Coach Rex Ryan hinted at this last week. "When you have a talent like Fred Jackson back there, that'll be part of his role," Ryan explained. "He won't always be the third-down back. LeSean will be a third-down back as well. But it's nice to have these kind of options." OC Greg Roman doesn't figure to formally determine down-and-distance roles until training camp. Based on how much the Bills gave up for McCoy, we wouldn't anticipate him coming off the field particularly often.

The Charlotte Observer reports free agent Greg Jennings isn't signing with the Panthers.

Jennings posted on social media Tuesday afternoon that he's found a new home, but it's unclear where. Jennings has been most closely linked to the Panthers, but also drawn interest from the Jaguars and Dolphins. We should learn his new team sometime in the next 24 hours.
Mar 31 - 7:32 PM's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Antonio Smith's potential reunion with the Texans "could move quickly."

There appears to be mutual interest in a homecoming for Smith, who spent 2009-13 in Houston. He'd serve as a situational pass rusher for Romeo Crennel's defense, likely playing drastically fewer snaps than the 791 he gave Oakland last season.

New Browns WR Dwayne Bowe is confident he'll bounce back in 2015.

"Just sit back and watch," were Bowe's words. Bowe said he recently broke down film with Browns GM Ray Farmer, and believes Farmer's team knows how to utilize him. "(Farmer) was pulling up old plays, saying, 'We are going to use you just like that,'" Bowe said. "Moving around, going on motion, trying to hit the deep ball, trying to break plays." We don't share Bowe's optimism for a turn-back-the-clock 2015. Bowe escaped a lousy quarterback situation for an even-worse setup in Cleveland.

The base value of Matt Schaub's one-year contract with the Ravens is $2 million.

It's low-end backup money. Another $1 million is available through incentives. Three months shy of his 34th birthday, Schaub's NFL career is running on fumes.
Mar 31 - 5:40 PM

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans are interested in a reunion with free agent DL Antonio Smith.

Cut loose by the Raiders on Tuesday, Smith spent 2009-13 with the Texans. DC Romeo Crennel reportedly wanted to re-sign Smith before he headed to Oakland on a two-year deal. A defensive tackle for the Raiders, Smith would likely be returning to end for the Texans.
