by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"I also want to thank my Baltimore family," Johnson wrote on Instagram. "Where I learned to be a pro and conduct yourself like a warrior on the field. Where I spent 9 of the best years of my life."

Report: Andre Johnson asks Texans to cut him
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:10 am ET) Andre Johnson's agent asked the Texans to cut the disgruntled wideout, rather than try to trade him, reports Pro Football Talk. Johnson said he was told by coach Bill O'Brien last week that the team envisioned him in a reduced role in 2015.

Johnson, 33, has two years and $21.5 million left on his contract. He has spent his entire 12-year career with Houston.

Report: Steelers hoping S Troy Polamalu retires
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11:00 am ET) The Steelers hope 33-year-old safety Troy Polamalu retires so they don't have to cut him, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette.

"That is the elephant in the room,” Bouchette told 93.7 The Fan. “I expect him not to be here by some means. The Steelers are hoping he would retire, but I don’t know if he is going to.”

Polamalu has two years left on his contract and carries an $8.25 million cap hit this season. He's spent his entire 12-year career in Pittsburgh, making eight Pro Bowls.

Jaguars, Raiders expected to lead chase for Randall Cobb
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9:58 am ET) Impending free agent receiver Randall Cobb apparently will not be returning to Green Bay, "barring the unexpected," and the Jaguars and Raiders are expected to be his top suitors, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Green Bay did not slap the franchise tag on Cobb, and the 24-year-old star believes he can do better than the Packers' offer of five years at $8 million to $9 million annually, the report said.

Other teams can start negotiating with Cobb at 3 p.m. Saturday. The Jaguars, who have $69.3 million in cap room, "are expected to be all over Cobb" as they need a dynamic threat from the slot to help quarterback Blake Bortles, the paper said.

Oakland has $56.6 million in cap room and also is preparing to bid for Cobb, the paper said, adding: "Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie helped draft Cobb for Green Bay in the second round four years ago and wants to reunite him with steady James Jones."

The Chiefs are over the cap but could create space to make a play for Cobb too, the report added. If Cobb leaves Green Bay, Davante Adams likely would step in as the starter opposite Jordy Nelson.

Cobb set career highs last year with 91 catches for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Spiller is reportedly set to have multiple suitors, including the Cardinals, Jets, Dolphins and 49ers, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN. 

Spiller played in just nine games in 2014 with a shoulder injury, finishing with 300 yards on 78 carries and 125 yards on 19 receptions, scoring just one touchdown.

Ginn Jr. caught 14 passes in 2014 for 190 yards. He was a member of the 49ers from 2010-2012, where he totaled 33 catches for 384 yards and one touchdown. He also averaged 23.5 yards per return in those three seasons.

C.J. Spiller: 'I won't be returning to Buffalo'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Impending free-agent running back C.J. Spiller said Tuesday that he will not return to the Bills, who reportedly have a deal in place to acquire Eagles running back LeSean McCoy, the NFL Network reports.

"I won't be returning to Buffalo," Spiller said.

Spiller indicated in February in an interview on Sirius XM radio that he wanted to remain in Buffalo but that his fate was up to the team. He played in just nine games in 2014 due to a stint on injured reserve caused by a shoulder injury. Spiller finished with 300 yards on 78 carries and 125 yards on 19 receptions, scoring just one touchdown.


Bills to trade Kiko Alonso to Eagles for LeSean McCoy
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) The Bills intend to trade linebacker Kiko Alonso to the Eagles for running back LeSean McCoy, CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora confirms. ESPN first reported the news of the trade, which will be a one-for-one deal.

The trade will become official next week, but the Bills have notified Alonso, who was looking to leave Buffalo, that he will be dealt.

Alonso had 159 tackles for the Bills in 2013 but missed all of last season after undergoing successful surgery to repair a torn ACL in July. He said in late February that he expected to be 100 percent before the beginning of camp. The trade reunites Alonso with Eagles coach Chip Kelly, who was his coach at Oregon.

La Canfora added that McCoy may not be pleased with the deal. The Eagles are looking to clear cap space, possibly for a draft day trade for a quarterback. Kelly was reportedly not a fan of McCoy's contract. The running back has a $10.25-million cap hit for 2015.

McCoy has delivered four 1,000-yard rushing seasons in the last five years, most recently rushing for 1,319 yards and five touchdowns in 2014. The Bills have had just one player top 1,000 yards rushing in the last five years.
