Cameron Wake awarded with extension
Wake was awarded a contract extension Saturday that ties him to the Dolphins through 2019. Despite his age, the 35-year-old pass rusher is coming off of one of his best seasons as a pro in 2016. Playing in all 16 games, he accumulated 29 total sacks, 11.5 sacks, an interception and five forced fumbles. He'll likely wrap up his career in Miami.

Fantasy Spin:
The Miami Dolphins and pass rusher Cameron Wake agreed to terms on a two-year, $19 million contract extension that includes $11 million in guaranteed money.

E Manuel (BUF)

E.J. Manuel not expected to remain with Bills
Manuel, an impending free agent, is unlikely to be retained by the Bills this offseason. The former 16th overall pick in the 2013 draft has never lived up to expectations and is labeled by most as a bust. He will likely compete for a backup role with another club for 2017.

Fantasy Spin:
Buffalo Bills beat writer Jay Skurski does not expect the team to retain quarterback E.J. Manuel. "Manuel’s time with the Bills should be over," Skurski said via the Buffalo News. "His legacy will be that of a first-round draft bust, even if it’s not his fault the Bills reached for him."

Navorro Bowman expected to be ready for start of 2017
After suffering a torn Achilles in Week 4, the 49ers placed Bowman on IR, ending his season. Bowman, who is viewed as one of San Francisco's top defensive weapons, could tremendously help a 49ers team that finished the 2016 season ranked dead last in total defense. Although he is expected to be sidelined for the bulk of the team's offseason workouts, Bowman is presumably on track for Week 1, barring a setback.

Fantasy Spin:
San Francisco 49ers beat writer Matt Barrows believes linebacker Navorro Bowman (Achilles) will be ready for the start of the 2017 regular season.

A Abdullah (DET)

Ameer Abdullah 'on track' for spring workouts
Abdullah got off to a promising start in 2016. However, a foot injury suffered in Week 2 abruptly ended his season. In his limited playing time, two games, the second-year rusher received 18 carries for 101 yards while adding five receptions for 57 yards and touchdowns as a receiver. Barring a change in personnel, expect Abdullah to enter the 2017 season as Detroit's early down back while Theo Riddick assumes his role as the team's primary receiving threat out of the backfield.

Fantasy Spin:
Detroit Lions beat writer Dave Birkett believes running back Ameer Abdullah's (foot) rehab from a foot injury is "going well." Birkett added that Abdullah "remains on track" to return for the start of offseason workouts in April.

M Floyd (NEP)

Michael Floyd pleads guilty to DUI and gets sentenced
Floyd will also face discipline from the NFL. It could be a suspension. The WR is also going to be an unrestricted free agent. The uncertainty of his suspension and where he is playing next season puts a damper of his fantasy prospects. Owners should wait and see how the offseason plays out.

Fantasy Spin:
Michael Floyd pleaded guilty to extreme DUI and began serving a 24-day sentence at Maricopa County Jail on Thursday, FOX 10 Phoenix reports. Floyd was charged with seven counts, including extreme DUI and failure to obey a police officer after he was found passed out behind the wheel of his car at a Scottsdale, Arizona intersection in December.

Darrelle Revis surrenders to authorities
As expected, Revis has surrendered to the police on Friday night less than 24 hours after numerous media outlets reported that the troubled cornerback had a warrant out for his arrest. He is being charged with four felonies stemming from an alleged altercation that occurred last weekend in the South Side district of Pittsburgh. This incident could mean the end for Revis' most recent tenure playing for the Jets.

Fantasy Spin:
ESPN's Coley Harvey reports New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has arrived at the Pittsburgh Municipal Courts Building to surrender to the police.

A Peterson (MIN)

Adrian Peterson not expected to have 'robust market'
I share La Canfora's sentiments. Peterson, who will be 32-yeras-old by the time the 2017 season begins, does not garner the per year salary that he once received in his prime. Now on the wrong side of 30, Peterson will likely receive an incentive based deal with very little, if any, guaranteed money involved if he reaches the open market. Even in the three games that Peterson played in last season, he was not very effective. He only gained 72 yards on 37 carries and failed to find the end zone. Perhaps behind a solid offensive line and in a reduced role, Peterson could be productive. However, he will have to be playing on the right team in the right situation for that to occur. Although Peterson has recently shown interest in playing for the Giants, they have bigger needs to address this offseason. Possibly the Patriots could make a run for Peterson's services. They are notorious for signing veteran players who are at the end of their career and putting them in situations where they can succeed. New England may be in the market for a running back if they lose LeGarrette Blount in free agency.

Fantasy Spin:
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports does not expect Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson to have a "robust market" if he becomes available this offseason. La Canfora also does not expect Peterson to receive any "significant guaranteed money" from potential suitors.

Z Stacy (NYJ)

Zac Stacy retires
After three NFL seasons, Stacy has announced his retirement from the league. He'll finish his short career with 357 carries for 1,355 yards rushing and 10 total touchdowns.

Fantasy Spin:
Former New York Jets and Los Angeles Rams running back Zac Stacy has announced his retirement from the NFL.

T Smith (SFO)

Torrey Smith 'excited' to play in new system
Since signing with the 49ers in 2015, Smith has accounted for his two worst seasons as a pro. He's only totaled 53 receptions for 930 yards receiving and seven touchdowns while playing in 28 of a possible 32 regular season games in that span. Smith's woes could be attributed to San Francisco's terrible quarterback play while playing on a 49ers team that has finished the past two regular seasons ranked 31st in total offense. Smith's value heading into 2017 will rest primarily on who the team will bring in as their starting quarterback as Colin Kaepernick has likely played his last down in San Francisco.

Fantasy Spin:
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith told the media he has "experience" in the team's new offense led by head coach Kyle Shanahan. ”The offense, I have experience with it,” Smith said via CSN Bay Area. “I’m interested to see how he [Kyle Shanahan] teaches it. You just have to execute. But with his track record, it kind of speaks for itself. I’m excited for him to have that opportunity. He’s a young guy. I feel like he could fit in in our locker room. He looks that young. He has a proven track record and he knows what he’s doing. It’s his time, so I’m excited for him.”

Amini Silatolu signs a one-year deal with Panthers
The Panthers have a lot of questions to be answered on the offensive line not named Ryan Kahlil. Michael Oher isn't looking good for next season while still not being cleared from concussions. Silatolu could provide depth but isn't guaranteed a spot.

Fantasy Spin:
Amini Silatolu signs a one-year deal with the Panthers after missing all of last season due to injury. Silatolu signed with Bears but was released last season. Silatolu returns to the Panthers after spending his first four seasons in Carolina.

J Goff (RAM)

Jared Goff working with QB gurus
This is a wise decision on Goff's part, as his rookie year was mostly a disaster. Goff is far from a bust, however, and acknowledging he needs to improve and seeking the help to do so is a step in the right direction. Goff isn't worth drafting in most leagues this summer, but he remains a firm dynasty stash.

Fantasy Spin:
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is spending this offseason working with quarterback gurus Tom House and Adam Dedeaux.

Darrelle Revis charged with four felonies
There is a warrant out for Revis' arrest as he has yet to turn himself into authorities. Revis' attorney, Blaine Jones, told the media that the troubled defensive back is expected to turn himself in within the next "24-48 hours." Revis, 31, is all but assured to receive disciplinary action from the NFL as a result of this matter. His career with the Jets, which was already in question due to his diminishing skills on the field and his hefty $15 million salary he's scheduled to make in 2017, could be coming to an end with this off the field issue being the icing on the cake.

Fantasy Spin:
Stemming from an alleged altercation from last weekend that occurred in Pittsburgh, New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis was charged with four felonies that include two counts of aggravated assault, one count of robbery and one count of conspiracy. He was also charged with making terroristic threats, which is a misdemeanor.

Darrelle Revis allegedly assaulted in Pittsburgh
Revis, who hails from Allipiqua, PA and played his college ball at Pitt, was in town to visit with family and friends last weekend where he was allegedly "roughed up" by "five people" in the South Side district of Pittsburgh. The New York Daily News reports that the 31-year-old cornerback "sought medical treatment after fearing for his safety." If Revis is accused and convicted of any wrongdoing, he could face charges from the authorities as well as disciplinary action from the NFL.

Fantasy Spin:
Multiple news outlets are reporting New York Jets defensive back Darrelle Revis was allegedly assaulted and injured in Pittsburgh last weekend. He is currently under investigation for the altercation.

Branden Albert not released
Garafolo reiterates Albert is, in fact, "done in Miami." However, the team believes they can receive value in return for him. Therefore, they will likely attempt to trade the left tackle in the offseason.

Fantasy Spin:
To update an earlier report, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Miami Dolphins have not released offensive lineman Branden Albert.

T Lockett (SEA)

Tyler Lockett 'expected' to be ready for 2017
Lockett suffered a severe, season-ending leg injury in Week 16 -- he broke both his fibula and tibia against Arizona. The second-year wideout, who is also a return specialist, played in 15 games in 2016. He caught 41 targets for 597 yards and a touchdown as a receiver and recorded 114 yards and a score as a rusher. Lockett, who was expected to have his breakout season, failed to live up to expectations. However, he reportedly played through a PCL injury for most of the year. A healthy Lockett could be a dynamic and explosive weapon for the Seahawks in 2017.

Fantasy Spin:
Seattle Seahawks beat writer Bob Condotta expects wide receiver Tyler Lockett (leg) to be ready for the start of the 2017 season.
