Falcons' Ryan Schraeder: No surgery required
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/26/2017) Schraeder (ankle) will not require ankle surgery, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "No surgery," he said. "It's not that big of a deal. It just hurts like heck."

Schraeder went down in the Super Bowl with a torn ankle ligament and wasn't expected to need surgery anyway. However, it still isn't clear when he'll be cleared to play again. He has until April 17 before the Falcons' offseason program starts up.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/26/2017) Ekpre-Olomu (knee - ACL) is cleared to resume all football-related activities, The Oregonian reports.

Ekpre-Olomu spent the entire 2016 season on the Dolphins' injured reserve list after tearing his right ACL in August. Now healthy, he'll look to land another contract once free agency opens on Mar. 9.


Panthers' Mario Addison: Signs with Panthers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/26/2017) Addison signed with the Panthers on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Addison's deal is expected to go through the 2019 season. Last season, Addison tallied 27 tackles and led the team with 9.5 sacks.


Ravens' Matt Elam: Arrested on multiple drug charges
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/26/2017) Elam was arrested on three drug-related charges in Miami on Sunday, NFL.com's Jeremy Bergman reports.

Elam was initially pulled over for reckless driving early Sunday morning, but police booked him on charges of marijuana possession, possession with intent to sell or deliver and possession of a controlled substance. The former first-round pick appeared in nine games as a backup for the Ravens last season, collecting four tackles. He's set to become a free agent in March after the Ravens declined his fifth-year option, but the arrest could hurt his chances of landing with a team.


Cowboys' Tony Romo: Has not had conversations with team yet
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/25/2017) Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones is expected to make the decision on the future of Romo soon, but Jones said he has not yet spoken with the veteran quarterback, Charean William of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

It was previously reported that the two sides would speak before the NFL Scouting Combine, and that begins Tuesday. Rookie Dak Prescott stepped in for the injured veteran and had a magical season. Prescott is expected to start in 2017, but it is possible the veteran Romo could be kept around as insurance. It would likely take a pay cut to make that happen. Vegas even has odds on Romo's 2017 team, and the Cowboys are considered the favorite (along with the Broncos).


Jets' Nick Mangold: Released by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/25/2017) Mangold has been released by the Jets, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Mangold ended the 2016 on injured reserve due to an ankle injury after appearing in just eight games. In his 11-year career with the Jets, he started 164 out of 176 games leading to seven Pro Bowl selections.


Redskins' Junior Galette: Signs with Redskins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/25/2017) Galette will return to the Redskins on a one-year contract, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Although he has been with the Redskins the past two seasons, Galette has yet to appear in a game with the team. He ruptured his left Achilles prior to the 2015 season and his right this past July. According to The Washington Post, he and GM Scot McCloughan reportedly laid out plans for Galette to remain in Washington on a one-year deal for 2017 previously, so this news comes as no surprise.


Eagles' Allen Barbre: Will be ready for 2017 season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/24/2017) Barbre (hamstring) should be completely healed in advance of the 2017 season, CSN Philly reports.

Barbre sat out last season's regular season finale after aggravating a hamstring injury in Week 16. While the injury is not expected to persist into the 2017 campaign, it still isn't clear how much of the Eagles' offseason program he could miss.


Broncos' Trevor Siemian: May not practice fully until training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/24/2017) Siemian (shoulder) likely won't be able to practice in full before training camp, Brandon Stokley of 104.3 The Fan Denver reports.

Siemian's first season as the Broncos' nominal starting QB was characterized by flashes in the beginning, a third-degree separation in his left shoulder in Week 4, and generally uninspiring play thereafter. Ringing in with the 25th-best completion percentage (59.5) by campaign's end, he racked up 3,401 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions across 14 games. He'll now be working under new head coach Vance Joseph, who has proclaimed that Siemian and 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch will vie for the No. 1 spot on the depth chart this offseason. If Siemian is indeed unable to put together an unhinged practice in the offseason program, it's safe to say that he'll be behind the eight ball in the competition.


49ers' Earl Mitchell: Signs four-year deal with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(2/24/2017) Mitchell signed a four-year contract with the 49ers on Friday, NFL.com's Mike Garafolo reports.

Mitchell was cut by the Dolphins in a cap-saving move last week but it didn't take long for him to find a new home. While the Arizona product racked up a career-low 17 tackles and zero sacks last season, he could be in line for a rebound in 2017 if he can secure the Niners' first-string nose tackle job this summer; the incumbent starting nose tackle, Glenn Dorsey, is set to hit unrestricted free agency.
