Since all of the buzz about Marshawn Lynch in recent weeks has been about his interaction with the media -- or lack thereof -- it is easy to forget that he held out of training camp for a week due to a contract squabble.

That left his future with the team beyond this season in doubt, but it appears that after helping lead the Seattle Seahawks to a second straight Super Bowl, the team is preparing to commit to Beast Mode for the long term.

Could Fins make a run at Suh?

The Miami Dolphins had trouble stopping the run late during the 2014 campaign. In fact, no team allowed more yards per game than the Dolphins during the final six weeks (165.3).

With that in mind, they could make a big-splash move during the offseason by signing Ndamukong Suh away from the Detroit Lions, if that team lets him reach free agency. Of course, he is going to ink a massive contract, so the Fins would have to do some salary-cap maneuvering to make it work.

While the Detroit Lions are preparing for offseason roster decisions -- especially how they will handle Ndamukong Suh's contract -- they also are focused on improving the NFL's instant replay system.

Still stinging from the pass-interference flag that was picked up late during their eventual loss to the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs, the Lions have submitted a proposal to the NFL's competition committee asking them to expand replay to allow review of officiating calls.

Latest buzz on Murray and Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys have a difficult call to make during the offseason regarding the future of DeMarco Murray. He had the good fortune of staying healthy and being the most dominant running back in the NFL during the final year of his contract with the team, so he is going to cash out for a big payday.

If the Cowboys opt against re-signing Murray (or using the franchise tag on him), it will be a financial decision, not based on his talents. Still, Murray implied Thursday that he believes the Cowboys can't replace his production with a free agent or draft pick.

LeSean McCoy has three years left on his contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, though only $1 million of it is guaranteed. Because the salary-cap impact of the deal peaks in 2015 ($11.95 million, before receding to $8.85 million in '16), there has been speculation about whether the Eagles may release him.

However, Shady doesn't think that will happen.

The San Diego Chargers backfield could look significantly different next season, since Ryan Mathews can leave the team during the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. They also can get out of Donald Brown's contract, if they choose too, since he has no remaining guaranteed money. Branden Oliver will be back on the cheap.

Could the Chargers set their sights high on a potential free-agent stud to top off their RB depth chart?

As defensive coordinator, Jim Schwartz took a Buffalo Bills defense that ranked 20th in points allowed in 2013 (24.3 PPG) and led them to a No. 4 ranking in that department in 2014 (18.1 PPG).

Despite his great success, he was bumped out of his job when the Bills hired defensive guru Rex Ryan as head coach. So it goes in the annual NFL coaching carousel.

Schwartz suggested this week that he is willing to be patient in seeking out his next job.

The St. Louis Rams continue to seek a replacement for former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who took the same job with Georgia. They kicked the tires on Nathaniel Hackett and appeared interested in Rob Chudzinski, but Hackett joined the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chud is sticking with the Indianapolis Colts.

With that pair off of the board, it appears most likely that the Rams' next OC already works for the team.
