LeSean McCoy
Bills' LeSean McCoy: Expected to be arrested
LeSean McCoy, RB, BUF
12:37 AM
News: Arrest warrants - including aggravated assault charges - are expected to be issued soon for McCoy and three others involved in the Philadelphia nightclub assault of two off-duty police officers early Monday morning, The Buffalo News reports.

McCoy seems to be in hot water for allegedly being at the center of ugly fracas, and will likely be hearing from the league office in the near future as well. Under the league's disciplinary policy, a player doesn't have to be convicted of a crime in order to be fined or suspended, should NFL investigators find McCoy was in fact involved in a negative and embarrassing incident.

Browns' Armonty Bryant: Indicted Tuesday
Armonty Bryant, OLB, CLE

News: Bryant was indicted Tuesday on felony drug charges stemming from a traffic stop on Dec. 25, ABC 5 Cleveland reports.

During the stop, police officers allegedly found Bryant with Adderall on his person in addition to marijuana, oxycodone, and a gun in the car. While he wasn't the driver, the charges could have an impact on the final year of his rookie deal in 2016.

Josh Morgan
Josh Morgan: Treated for gunshot wound
Josh Morgan, WR, NO
2/10/2016
News: Morgan was treated for an apparent, self-inflicted gunshot wound on Jan. 31, FOX Sports reports.

Among the final cuts from Saints training camp in 2015, Morgan failed to take an NFL snap for the first time since he was selected in the 2008 draft. While the recent incident brings with it a misdemeanor charge of reckless use of a firearm, it remains to be seen if he'll be a part of an offseason program in anticipation of the 2016 season.

Austin Johnson
Saints' Austin Johnson: Signs with Saints
Austin Johnson, FB, NO
2/10/2016
News: The Saints signed Johnson on Wednesday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Johnson has jumped between the Saints' 53-man roster and practice squad over the past three seasons, but in 17 appearances between 2014 and 2015, he totaled 12 carries for 31 yards and seven receptions (on 10 targets) for 45 yards. At the outset of the offseason, he'll be measuring himself against fellow fullback Toben Opurum.

Andy Dalton
Bengals' Andy Dalton: Hasn't started throwing
Andy Dalton, QB, CIN
2/10/2016
News: Dalton (thumb) has yet to begin throwing, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. "Not throwing yet because we are being very conservative with it," Dalton said this week. "I feel like I can throw but no reason to push anything right now. I have plenty of time now to get 100 percent."

The Bengals were knocked out on wild-card weekend, so it appears that Dalton may not have made an appearance in the postseason, even if his side reached the Super Bowl. Either way, he expects to attend a quarterback camp at USC in the coming months, while he'll have an opportunity to take part in Cincinnati's offseason program as early as April 18.

Jon Beason
Jon Beason: Announces retirement
Jon Beason, MLB, NYG
2/10/2016
News: Beason announced Wednesday that he will retire, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports.

With word coming down earlier Wednesday that the Giants intended to release the veteran linebacker, Beason instead opted to announce his retirement. Beason had his career hampered by foot and knee injuries and as a 31-year-old linebacker, he hadn't played a dull season since 2010 and only played double-digit games once in his final five seasons. He finishes his career with 526 total tackles, three forced fumbles, and 10 interceptions.

T.J. Ward
Broncos' T.J. Ward: Nabs pick, recovers key fumble
T.J. Ward, SS, DEN
2/9/2016
News: Ward recorded seven tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery and a pass defensed in the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 win over the Panthers.

If not for Von Miller doing his best Lawrence Taylor impression, Ward would have had a pretty strong case for Super Bowl 50's MVP. In addition to thwarting a Carolina drive into Broncos' territory with a pick and scooping up Miller's second strip sack to all but put the game away, Ward helped keep Greg Olsen in check to the tune of 41 yards. Sure, Ward almost gave the ball back to Carolina after fumbling his interception, but history will remember him as a key cog in Denver's "No Fly Zone" and a force in Denver's dominant defensive victory.

DeMarcus Ware
Broncos' DeMarcus Ware: Records two sacks in Super Bowl 50
DeMarcus Ware, OLB, DEN
2/9/2016
News: Ware collected five tackles and two sacks in Sunday's Super Bowl 50 victory over Carolina.

Ware ended any hopes of a big play to end Carolina's first half by nailing Cam Newton for a sack. Nearly an entire half later, Carolina was down two scores and in hurry-up mode. On 2nd and 10 Newton spun out, avoided Malik Jackson and found himself smothered by Ware for a 14-yard loss. Ware waited 11 years to make his first big playoff push and didn't disappoint. When Denver drafted Shane Ray in the first round and watched Shaq Barrett impress while Ware's back hampered him during the season, the veteran looked like a potential cap casualty. With 5.5 sacks in his final five games, however, Ware has changed the conversation.

Darian Stewart
Broncos' Darian Stewart: Forces a fumble in Super Bowl 50
Darian Stewart, FS, DEN
2/9/2016
News: Stewart recorded three tackles a sack, a forced fumble and defended two passes in the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 win over the Panthers.

Mike Tolbert was a 250-pound unstoppable force rumbling down the field for an 11 yard gain in the second quarter. He then met an immovable object in Stewart, who dislodged the ball from the fullback. Stewart signed a modest one-year deal to come to Denver in the offseason and serve as the fourth part of the Broncos' "No Fly Zone." He responded with his best statistical season since 2011. Unless Stewart is willing to take a team-friendly deal, it is hard to imagine Denver being able to properly reward him for his efforts.

Analysis: 

Malik Jackson
Broncos' Malik Jackson: Scores first touchdown of Super Bowl 50
Malik Jackson, DE, DEN
2/9/2016
News: Jackson recorded five tackles, one tackle for a loss, one quarterback hit, a fumble recovery and a touchdown in Denver's Super Bowl 50 victory over Carolina.

Jackson pounced on Von Miller's first strip sack of Cam Newton, giving Denver a 10-0 lead in the first quarter. The team never looked back. Jackson didn't record a sack in the playoffs, and managed a modest five during the season, but established himself as a disruptive interior force. The Broncos locked up Jackson's other half, Derek Wolfe, and have Von Miller's contract to worry about, likely making Jackson one of the better free agent defensive linemen.
