by Brandon Wise |
(10:15 pm ET) Wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. is reportedly scheduled to visit with the 49ers Wednesday, according to ESPN. Ginn, who was released by the Cardinals last month, reportedly visited with the Titans as well Tuesday.

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.

Andre Johnson said he laughed when told he wasn't full-time starter
by Larry Hartstein |
(3:36 pm ET) Disgruntled Texans wideout Andre Johnson said coach Bill O'Brien told him last week that the team didn't consider Johnson a likely starter any more, reports the Houston Chronicle. Johnson, who caught a team-high 85 passes last year, also said O'Brien also told him the Texans anticipated him catching about 40 balls this season.

"I just laughed," Johnson told the paper. "They gave me my role, and I just laughed at them. How do you tell a guy who is used to catching 80 balls a year that he was going to catch 40?"

Johnson added he was "floored" about the comment that he probably wasn't a full-time starter. "I don't feel like there is a guy on that team that can outplay me or outwork me," Johnson said. "I mean, who am I going to play behind?

"So I was real honest with him: 'If that's your role for me, you're going to be dealing with a miserable football player.'"

The relationship between Johnson and the team has deteriorated to the point that Houston is expected to cut Johnson if it can't trade him. Johnson, 33, is the franchise's most accomplished player, with 1,012 career catches for 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns.

He's scheduled to make $10.5 million and count $16.1 million against the cap this season.

by Larry Hartstein |

Wright drew just 6.6 targets per game and suffered from Tennessee's unsettled quarterback situation.

Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill clears air with Mike Wallace
by Shawn Krest |
(2:14 pm ET) Dolphins' WR Mike Wallace was benched in the second half of the season finale, and it's uncertain if the team will keep him in 2015. 

The Dolphins can save $6.9 million by cutting Wallace in the offseason, but his quarterback has his back. 

Ryan Tannehill told the Miami Herald he settled any issues with Wallace after the tumultuous final game. "We cleared the air," Tannehill said. "There's no problem there."

Despite that, Tannehill isn't sure if Wallace will return. 

"I like Mike," he told the Palm Beach Post. "He’s a talented player and we’ll see what happens. It’s tough to lose a guy that works hard day in and day out at practice, but at the end of the day it’s a reminder that it’s a business. It doesn’t matter the kind of player you are or the type of relationship you have, it comes down to numbers."

by Jason Butt |
(3/2/2015) Wide receiver Andre Johnson has been given permission by the Texans to seek a trade, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle

The Texans told Johnson that he'd have a reduced role this upcoming season opposite of DeAndre Hopkins. Therefore, Johnson wanted out of his deal. If a trade cannot be made with a suitor, Johnson will be released
