Because the Chicago Bears changed general managers and coaches, we could see some big roster changes this offseason. That could include wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who is slated to carry a salary-cap number of $9.58 million next season.

The Bears reportedly are listening to trade offers.
Word broke Tuesday that the Philadelphia Eagles were trading away one of their all-time great running backs, with LeSean McCoy slated to head to Buffalo, and now there is question as to whether the Eagles might also lose free agent receiver Jeremy Maclin.

ESPN NFL Insider Matt Williamson recently wrote that the Green Bay Packers, Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns are the best landing spots for free agent receiver Randall Cobb, and a report on Wednesday suggests that the Raiders could be willing to make Cobb an offer he won't be able to refuse.

The Green Bay Packers typically eschew their annual option of franchising a player, and this year was no different, as they chose to not tag wide receiver Randall Cobb by Monday's deadline. He will have the chance to test the free-agent market beginning next Tuesday, though the Packers have exclusive negotiating rights with Cobb that run until Saturday afternoon, at which point other teams can speak with him.

That approach worked last season with a different Packers free agent.

The Detroit Lions drafted Ryan Broyles in the second round of the 2012 draft, but injuries marred his first two seasons. Ironically, he managed to stay healthy in 2014 but barely set foot on the field, because he was too far down the depth chart and the top options largely avoided the infirmary.

However, it appears the Lions are hoping that Broyles is far enough removed from his ruptured Achilles and two torn ACLs to make a mark in 2015.

When the Arizona Cardinals released Darnell Dockett on Friday, they shed $9.8 million off of their salary cap. That doesn't mean they don't want the defensive end back for 2015, but only that they couldn't secure him at a price they felt was appropriate for a veteran who will turn 34 during the offseason and missed last season with a torn ACL.

When the Washington Redskins selected Leonard Hankerson in the third round of the 2011 draft, the club hoped he would turn into a genuine outside threat. However, injuries have plagued him throughout most of his career -- he was active for just two games last season -- and he never really came through when he was on the field.

He is slated to become an unrestricted free agent a week from now, but will he end up re-signing with Washington?

Although the New England Patriots hold an option on Darrelle Revis' contract for 2015, they aren't expected to invoke it because it would cost them a whopping $25 million in salary-cap space.

Will Revis work out a long-term deal with the Patriots, in lieu of the 2015 option?

When the Dallas Cowboys made the expected decision Monday to use their franchise tag on Dez Bryant instead of DeMarco Murray, it put the futures of both Murray and the Cowboys backfield in flux.

Unless Murray unexpectedly re-signs with the Cowboys before the free-agent market opens in a week, Murray will be allowed to sign with any team he chooses. After leading the NFL in rushing in 2014, he is sure to find plenty of interested teams.

The Washington Redskins used the franchise tag on Brian Orakpo last year. This season, they opted against using the tag on the veteran linebacker, which means that he will be allowed to test the free-agent market in a week, unless he re-signs with Washington before the March 10 deadline.

Apparently, Orakpo already is drawing interest from other teams.

Veteran running back C.J. Spiller is just about a week away from being able to test the market as an unrestricted free agent. He recently said that he was open to re-signing with the Buffalo Bills, which made an offseason coaching change from Doug Marrone to Rex Ryan.

Nonetheless, it appears far more likely that he will depart for a new team this offseason.

Veteran DE/OLB Dwight Freeney recently turned 35 years old, so 2014 may well have been his swansong campaign in the NFL. However, he isn't quite ready to hang up his cleats, noting that ideally he would like to play again for the San Diego Chargers in 2015.

The Dallas Cowboys have decided to use the franchise tag on wide receiver Dez Bryant, instead of running back DeMarco Murray, as was largely expected. For Murray, that means he can test the market next week as an unrestricted free agent, though he still can re-sign with the Cowboys.

Last week, the Baltimore Ravens released veteran wide receiver and return man Jacoby Jones. While they shaved his $3.375 million contract off of their books, the dead money left on the deal means they saved only $750K worth of salary-cap space.

Jones will turn 31 this offseason, but he already is generating interest as a free agent. Which teams are kicking the tires on the veteran?

The Detroit Lions have decided against using the franchise tag on unrestricted free agent Ndamukong Suh. Although there was some buzz that they may go ahead and use the tag, the hefty price of nearly $27 million that would have counted against their salary cap made it a highly unlikely move.

The team still can re-sign him, but he is free to hit the open market on March 10. Which teams may come calling?
