Wake is coming off an Achilles tear and at 34 years of age his best days could be behind him. The Dolphins would save $8.4 million against the cap by cutting him. It is more likely however that the team will try to bring Wake back at a lower salary as even part-time pass rushers have value in the NFL.
The Dolphins don't need to have permission to make this adjustment and by doing so Suh's cap number would shrink from $28.6 million to $10.5 million, a savings of almost $16 million.
Less than two weeks removed from the allegation, Bromley will avoid any charges. The second-year defensive tackle is coming off a campaign in which he ranked fifth on the defensive front in snaps, earning 41 percent of them. Such usage translated to 36 tackles (19 solo) in 16 games.
Keo, a late season pickup by the Broncos and reserve safety, was reportedly taken into custody early Saturday morning in Idaho, where he lives in the offseason. He could be facing disciplinary measures from the league or the Broncos in the wake of his arrest.
Bush's tenure with the 49ers got off to a rocky start after straining his calf in the season opener. The injury lingered through October, and he eventually suffered an ignominious knee injury in Week 8 at St. Louis, where he slipped on concrete at the conclusion of a punt return. After a diagnosis of MCL and meniscus tears in that knee, his season was over with just eight carries for 28 yards and four receptions (on 10 targets) for 19 yards in five games. Interested parties will likely put the soon-to-be 31-year-old through the ringer to ensure that he's progressing well in the expected 4-to-6 month recovery, and while he appears dead set on playing in 2016, in what capacity remains to be seen.
With much uncertainty surrounding Harvin's desire to continue his NFL pursuits, the Bills will search elsewhere for a No. 2 receiver to complement top option Sammy Watkins. All options have been on the table for Harvin, including retirement, but his rehab from knee surgery and avoiding further issues with his hip will ultimately play a role in whether he's a part of a roster in the fall.
Rodgers is participating in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, marking his first round of golf since last July. The aforementioned procedure was intended to clean up an old injury, and his ability to make it through 18 holes is an encouraging sign in his recovery. Expect Rodgers to be healthy once the offseason program kicks off in April.
The drop-dead date for Washington to cut the quarterback is March 9, when Griffin's $16.155 option becomes full guaranteed. The organization is clearly uninterested in devoting such funds to a reserve after Kirk Cousins helmed the offense with aplomb in 2015. Once Griffin reaches the open market, he likely still boasts enough of his noted athleticism to be of interest, though it should be noted that he hasn't taken a snap since 2014.
Forte had already expressed what he expected to occur in the offseason, which has seemingly come to fruition. While he'll join the likes of Doug Martin and Lamar Miller on the free-agent market, Forte's versatility could help him serve as one of the final pieces of a playoff-worthy organization. In eight seasons with the Bears, Forte surpassed 1,000 rushing yards on five occasions, reeled in at least 44 catches in each campaign, and reached the end zone 64 times in 120 games.
McCain was waived after one year with the Dolphins. He had 39 tackles and one interception in 14 games this season.
