Two sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler that the Bucs are not expected to aggressively pursue Adrian Peterson at this point. Things could change, but right now, the team has loose plans for Doug Martin. The Bucs met with Martin last week and believe he looks refreshed and healthy after rehab. They'll need to see consistency with him over the next 6-8 months, though.

With the salary cap at $167M this year the franchise tag for a DE and Jason Pierre-Paul will be $16,933,800. That leaves the Giants around $13M under the cap right now.

Regarding running back Jacquizz Rodgers -- the Bucs will meet with his agent this week in Indianapolis to "see what happens." General manager Jason Licht said, "We really like Jacquizz" and that their "ideal situation" would be to have him back. Because he's an MSB (minimum salary benefit player) the Bucs can't sign him until free agency starts next week.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said the team hopes Antonio Brown plays out the length of his new five-year contract. The team doesn't do long-term contracts with short-term success in mind, he said. "Whatever terms are, we hope (the player) meets those terms fully," Colbert said.

Vikings GM Rick Spielman continued to leave the door open for Adrian Peterson's return, though the team will continue to keep their options open. "The door is still open to find some common ground," Spielman said.

Mike McCarthy would "love to have Eddie (Lacy) back. He's working through his rehab at the University of Alabama. Had a chance to visit with him about a week ago. But this is the business phase. We'd like to have all our guys back."

Seahawks GM John Schneider kicks off the 710 ESPN show from the Indy Combine at 10. Lots of info coming up.

Seahawks GM John Schneider told reporters in Indianapolis that the team has some regrets about how it handled the offensive line last season – specifically cutting veteran Jahri Evans before Week 1. "We probably got a little bit too young," Schneider said, adding that Seattle would like to add some experience this offseason. On the defensive side of the ball, Schneider said that CB DeShawn Shead is unlikely to be ready for the start of the 2017 season after suffering a knee injury in the divisional round. That will push CB up on the list of draft priorities, Schneider said. Asked about drafting for need, Schneider said, "In this day and age, you kind of have to."

A couple of days after signing his $41 million contract extension with the Chiefs, guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif was back home in Montreal seeing patients at a local hospital as part of his medical school responsibilities. Duvernay-Tardif was in the middle of doing a geriatrics rotation when he took a break to answer some questions from the Kansas City media. Duvernay-Tardif said he still plans to graduate from medical school next year.

Rams CB Trumaine Johnson was given the franchise tag for a second straight season, which means he'll remain with the team on a one-year contract that is expected to pay him about $16.7M in 2017. Both sides have until July 15 to negotiate a long-term deal, but unless the annual salary offers a significant savings, there's some thought within the Rams that a one-year deal makes sense, even though the price is so high. It allows them to see if Johnson truly is a fit in Wade Phillips' system before committing long term.
