NFL News & Notes: Jets, Steelers, Falcons, Rams

Here’s a look at some of the days moves that teams are considering as they begin to evaluate their rosters.

New York Jets

  •’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.

Pittsburgh Steelers

  • 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.

Atlanta Falcons

  • 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.
