Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, who suffered a career-threatening neck injury in October, reiterated on 710 ESPN Seattle that he'd like to continue playing football if possible. He said he'll discuss that with his wife sometime in the spring, at which point he'll be about five months removed from disc surgery. For now, he's focusing simply on getting back to feeling like his pre-injury self. Avril, 31, said he's now pain-free and has started to regain his range of motion.

This makes three longsnappers for the Raiders, along with one-time Pro Bowler Jon Condo, who will be a free agent, and Bradley Northnagel, who also has a Reserve/Future contract. It also puts heat on Condo, who turns 37 in August. "We'll see what happens," Condo said the day after the season finale. "I still want to play the game of football. I love it. I still feel young and this is the healthiest I've been. I haven't had any trips to the training room this year and I took care of my body. We'll see."

The Redskins signed offensive lineman Orlando Franklin to a reserve/future contract, the team announced Friday. Franklin played one game with Washington this season but was then cut. He started 89 games between 2011 and '16. He was a second-round pick by Denver in 2011 and played four years with the Broncos before joining the Chargers. New Orleans cut him in training camp.

The Pro Football Writers of America selected Rams QB Jared Goff as its Most Improved Player. Obvious choice. From 2016 to ‘17, Goff made huge strides in completion percentage (54.6 to 62.1), yards per attempt (4.3 to 8.5), touchdown-to-interception ratio (0.71 to 4.00) and passer rating (63.6 to 100.5).

Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told me he's interested in being the color analyst for "Monday Night Football," the role formerly held by Jon Gruden, who left ESPN earlier this month to become the head coach of the Oakland Raiders: "Oh gosh, I'd be interested. I don't think they're interested in me. But that would be like the dream job, especially working with someone as good as Sean (McDonough). That'd be fun. That's obviously a home run."

Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told me today he'd like to go into broadcasting, either on TV or radio, in the next phase of his life. He's interviewed with Fox and the NFL Network, and has an interview with CBS coming up. He's interested in being in studio or in the booth, but will let the networks decide where he's a better fits. He said broadcasting is a way to stay connected to the game.

The Patriots officially list Tom Brady (right hand) as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game, and as a limited participant in Friday's practice.

Jets WR Robby Anderson, one of the team's top young players, faces possible discipline under the league's personal conduct policy after being arrested for the second time in eight months. He's facing a total of three felony charges from the two arrests. There were off-the-field concerns about him when he came out of Temple in 2016, one of the reasons he wasn't drafted. Anderson is an ascending player with a high ceiling, but his maturity issues are a concern to the organization.

A source confirms Le'Veon Bell was late to the Saturday walkthrough before last week's divisional round loss to Jacksonville. The source added Bell was there for part of it. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Bell missed all but about five minutes of the session and showed up later than Mike Tomlin's mandated arrival time of two hours before the game for his players.
