AFC Rumors: Chiefs, Colts, Dolphins
- Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports is hearing from NFL teams that the Chiefs haven’t made an attempt to trade CB Marcus Peters as of now.
- However, other teams anticipate his name coming up next week at the Combine.
- La Canfora hears that Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has some with Peters’ actions last season along with his behavior during games.
- According to La Canfora, there will certainly be interested teams in Peters if he ends up being available.
- La Canfora wonders if the Seahawks could be a fit for Peters, given that he played at Washington and they’re looking to reshape their defense.
- Mike Chappell of CBS 4 doesn’t expect the Colts to re-sign free agent RB Frank Gore this offseason and suggests the Dolphins as a potential landing spot.
- Chappell puts the odds of WR Donte Moncrief being back in Indianapolis next season at “50-50.“
- If it were up to Chappell, he would re-sign G Jack Mewhort, given that it’s a “no risk, high reward” move.
- Chappell makes a good point regarding CB Rashaan Melvin in that this could be his last opportunity to cash in and the Colts may not be willing to overpay to keep him.

- While the Dolphins announced Tuesday that they’ve franchised WR Jarvis Landry, there has been some recent buzz that Miami could still make him available for trade. (NFLTR)
- Jason La Canfora reports that there are “plenty” of people around the league who believe the Dolphins will be “very open” to trading Landry, despite franchising him.
- La Canfora says that the odds of Miami getting a long-term deal done in the next few weeks are “bleak.”
- According to La Canfora, executives around the NFL are surprised that Miami would allocate so much of their cap space to tagging Landry.
- La Canfora points out that it’s going to make more than the third-round compensatory pick Miami would likely receive for Landry if they allowed him to depart in free agency to complete a trade. Beyond that, a team will have to sign Landry to a long-term extension and meet his asking price.
- La Canfora believes the Dolphins may end up renting Landry for the 2018 season and then letting him walk next year.
