Vikings pick up fifth-year options on LT Kalil, S Smith
Picking up Smith's option was a simple one for the Vikings, as he picked up 92 tackles and grabbed five interceptions for Minnesota last season. He's scheduled to make $5.278 million next year.
Kalil was a more difficult decision, as the former No. 4 pick has struggled after a strong start. His salary would be over $11 million in 2016.

Colts' Irsay would like to win two champions during Andrew Luck era
Irsay added that the team is trying to achive continued success on a yearly basis and this year's draft will help the team become more successful.
"When you look at that, we look at how do we build this roster over the next three years to really be able to go on a run where you can win two Super Bowls in a row, when you can really be dominant," he said. "Again, that's working on all phases of the ball."
Cowboys' Brandon Carr not willing to discuss potential pay cut
"Some things I don't discuss out in public," Carr said. "This is one of those."
Carr will count $12.7 million against the cap during the 2015 season if he does not restructure his contract and he declined to say if he'd be willing to lessen the amount.
"I'm still here,'' he said. "I'm here until told otherwise. That's my philosophy. At the end of the day, if I'm playing football then I'm going to give my all for whoever I'm playing for."

With the NFL draft completed,
"There is no question that our focus in the future will be on Julio Jones and where we are," Dimitroff said. "I don't want to get into specifics about the timing of that, obviously. But now that the draft is over and we continue to build this football team, we understand that Julio is a very important part of our building and evolving as a championship-type team."
Jones is a two-time Pro Bowl player and can become a free agent after the 2015 season. Jones has had to deal with foot issues during his career, which Dimitroff said wasn't an issue.
"That's not my concern right now," Dimitroff said. "That's not my concern, period."

Exum, who was taken in the sixth round last year and only participated in 16 plays from scrimmage, could battle safety Robert Blanton for the position, but is willing to be either a strong or free safety.
"So whatever I'm asked to play, I will be ready," Exum said. "I take pride in work ethic and not being outworked, and this offseason I've been attacking."
Seahawks decline to exercise Bruce Irvin's option
The Seahawks would've owed Irvin $7.8 million had they picked up the option. Despite not picking up the option, coach Pete Carroll had previously said Irvin is in the team's long-term plans.
"If we pick up Bruce's option it's a great thing, if we don't pick up Bruce's option it only means we aren't picking it up... We want him to be here for a long time," Carroll said.

Bucs decline fifth-year option on RB Doug Martin
Martin rushed for 1,454 yards in 2012, but since then has battled injury and ineffectiveness, falling short of 500 yards in each of the last two seasons.
Martin remains in line to be Tampa Bay's No. 1 rusher at the start of 2015, but he will have to prove himself in order to be rewarded with a new contract.
