by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5:54 pm ET) The Dolphins waived defensive back T.J. Heath, kicker Zach Hocker and defensive back Lowell Rose on Tuesday, the team announced.

Heath and Rose were with the team during the 2014 season, while Hocker was signed in the offseason.

by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5:50 pm ET) The Raiders have released linebacker Bojay Filimoeatu, cornerback Jansen Watson and linebacker Justin Jackson, reports ESPN.

Patriots axe CB Alfonzo Dennard, two others
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:25 pm ET) As expected, the Patriots have announced the release of cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, who exceeded expectations for three years after having been taken in the seventh round of the 2012 draft.

Dennard started 20 of 29 games in which he played and racked up 92 tackles and five interceptions. He also started in four postseason games with two picks. But he played just six games a year ago and lost time to a hamstring injury.

Long snapper Tyler Ott and linebacker Deontae Skinner were also cut loose by the Patriots on Tuesday.


Report: Chiefs release quarterback Terrelle Pryor
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4:14 pm ET) The Chiefs have reportedly cut ties with quarterback Terrelle Pryor, according to Pro Football Talk. 

Pryor was signed by Kansas City in January and coach Andy Reid wanted to give him a chance to earn the starting quarterback role.

"We're going to give him an opportunity to play quarterback and see how he does," Reid said. "He’s there lifting everyday and doing his thing. We can’t meet with him but he shows up everyday and does what he can do."

Pryor last started as a quarterback in 2013 with the Raiders, totaling 2,374 yards with seven touchdown passes and 11 interceptions.


Cardinals cut Zach Bauman, Roc Carmichael
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3:47 pm ET) The Cardinals released running back Zach Bauman and cornerback Roc Carmichael on Tuesday, reports Fox Sports Arizona.

Bauman and Carmichael did not appear in any games last season.


Vikings WR Mike Wallace on his speed: Nobody can run with me
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3:35 pm ET) Vikings wide receiver Mike Wallace was not shy in expressing confidence in his speed, reports the Pioneer Press.

"Without a doubt, I'm the fastest player in the NFL," Wallace said. "If somebody feels foggy about that, we can [race]. I'm never going to back down from competition."

Wallace was recently acquired in a trade with the Dolphins. He struggled to connect on the deep ball with Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill during the last two seasons, but he expects that to change with the Vikings.

"The last couple of years I haven't been able to showcase my separation, but I'm positive that it will happen now," Wallace said.


Patriots DE Jabaal Sheard embraces his versatilty
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2:06 pm ET) Patriots newcomer Jabaal Sheard will have a stable position at defensive end, which could prove beneficial to his career. He is coming from a Cleveland team that used three different defensive coordinators during his time there and utilized him both as a defensive end in a 4-3 and outside linebacker in a 3-4.

The Patriots generally remain in a four-man front. But Sheard is claiming an appreciation for the Browns for developing his versatility.

"Throughout the course of the years, I learned three different defenses," Sheard told NESN. "I learned how to drop back. It made me diverse and able to do a number of different things. I think the three defensive coordinators definitely helped me. I think it prepared me to be a coach some day. We'll see how that goes."

Sheard's sack totals decreased every year until the last one with the Browns. It peaked at 8.5 as a rookie before dropping to seven and 5.5 the next two seasons.


Cardinals TE John Carlson announces retirement
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1:55 pm ET) Cardinals tight end John Carlson has decided to retire from the NFL, the team announced.

"After much thought and consideration, my wife Danielle and I know that this is best decision for us," Carlson said in a statement. "I was blessed to play seven seasons in the NFL for three tremendous organizations - the Cardinals, Vikings and Seahawks. I will always treasure the experiences and relationships made during that time but I'm also very excited about the next phase of my life and what's ahead."

Carlson announced the decision Tuesday and the Cardinals placed him on the reserve/retired list. In 2014, he caught 33 passes for 350 yards and one touchdown.


Patriots LT Nate Solder: 'I would love to stay'
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12:52 pm ET) Patriots left tackle Nate Solder is hoping to stick around despite being in the final season of his rookie contract.

"I would love to stay," he told the Boston Herald. "...Who knows what will happen? My approach with that, too, is just to do the best I can while I'm here."

Solder is set to earn a guaranteed $7.438 million in 2015. The team could work out an extension with him to lessen a cap hit or prevent him from becoming a free agent in March. The Patriots did draft offensive linemen over the weekend, but none play his position.


Cowboys' Randy Gregory: 'I don't think it's a weed problem'
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12:04 pm ET) Despite failing a drug test at the scouting combine in February, Cowboys defensive end Randy Gregory said he doesn't have a marijuana problem, reports The Dallas Morning News.

"I haven't touched it," he said. "I'm feeling real good, too. This is a high in itself, to be honest. I'm high on life right now, and I don't want to lose this high."

Gregory did admit that his decision making needs to improve, which he said will come with more maturity.

"That's something I've definitely been working on and something I can definitely fix," Gregory said. "I'm 22 years old, but I think I carry myself real well and I think I need to carry myself a little bit better as far as decision making goes. I think a lot of people are getting tied up in the weed and think it's just a weed problem. I don't think it's a weed problem. I think it's decision making. I think I'm immature. I'm definitely working on that. I want to prove everyone wrong and I want to do it with this team. I think this is the best team I can do that with."
