Without a quarterback currently under contract for 2018, new Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks said the team will be "very aggressive" whether it be in free agency, through a trade or in the draft to find a quarterback. So. what does a Steve Wilks quarterback look like? I asked him. "Very smart and intelligent guy. A guy that's going to come in and command, not only the huddle, but that side of the ball, that locker room. A competitor. A guy that loves to compete. We're looking for all those things. That DNA.”

The Steelers are trying to keep Le'Veon Bell, but their second-biggest unrestricted free agent, offensive tackle Chris Hubbard, is likely to get a good contract on the market. The Steelers will meet with Hubbard's reps at the combine but understand that after acquitting himself well in 10 starts, Hubbard can probably start elsewhere.

Model of consistency: The Steelers are the NFL's only team without a top-10 NFL draft pick since 2001. Twenty-nine NFL teams have had multiple top-10 picks. Pittsburgh selected Plaxico Burress with the eighth overall pick in 2000. The Colts and Broncos have had one top-10 pick apiece during that span. (Numbers verified by ESPN Stats and Information).

NFL Combine and Draft will be a little different for the Titans this year holding pick No. 25. It's the first time since 2012 that they haven't had a top-11 pick and first time since 2009 picking outside the top-20. They have one pick, their own, in each of the first six rounds.

Adam Vinatieri will get a $250,000 bonus if he makes 88 percent of his field goal attempts next season. He failed to get $500,000 bonuses in each of the past two seasons because he didn't make 90 percent of his field goal attempts.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Adam Vinatieri only signed a one-year deal with the Colts, but he's not ruling out the possibility of playing beyond the 2018 season. Vinatieri is 45 years old, but he's proved over and over again that age is just a number.
