Here’s a look at some of the days moves that teams are considering as they begin to evaluate their rosters.
New York Jets
- NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora reports that the Jets have signed K Nick Novak to a contract today. Novak led the United Football League in scoring with 69 points this season and should compete for the teams kicker position despite a decent year from Nick Folk.
- Steelers offensive tackle Flozell Adams could be considering retirement following the teams loss to the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl. Adam’s 2011 contract is set to pay $5 million which is high enough for the Steelers to pass on him at that price. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians praised Adam’s play leading up to Super Bowl so ruling out a return to Pittsburgh would be premature at this point.
- Pro Football Talk confirmed that the Falcons will cut S Erik Coleman in the coming days. Coleman is 28 and played in 12 games for Atlanta this season but only started one which makes his $3 million salary seem overpriced.
St Louis Rams
- ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Rams will release FB Mike Karney. Schefter also mentions that new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels plans to go with a lot of no-fullback sets and plans to focus on using the spread offense more next year.
