By Marc Sessler - NFL.com
"The courting of Ndamukong Suh is underway.
NFL Media columnist Michael Silver reported Thursday that the Oakland Raiders are planning to bring the free-agent defensive tackle in for a visit next week, per a source familiar with the team's plans.
After the Lions balked at using $26.7 million to franchise tag the three-time All-Pro, Suh looms as a lock to become the highest-paid defensive player in the league." READ MORE…

2. Chicago Bears exploring a Brandon Marshall trade
By Dan Hanzus - NFL.com
"Brandon Marshall might not be long for the Chicago Bears.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Bears are exploring a potential trade of the talented wide receiver, according to a source informed of the team's plans. The effort to move Marshall is an attempt by new general manager Ryan Pace and coach John Fox to "clean up the locker room," according to Rapoport.
Marshall signed a four-year contract with the Bears last May, but appears to have fallen out of favor with the team following a 2014 season in which he was outspoken with the press and on social media and was involved in a well-publicized locker room incident during the season." READ MORE…
3. Chiefs continue salary-cap savings, release inside linebacker Joe Mays
By Terez Paylor - Kansas City Star
"The cuts just keep coming with the Chiefs, who announced the release of inside linebacker Joe Mays on Thursday.
The decision to release Mays, 29, saves approximately $2.7 million off the salary cap. The Chiefs still need to cut approximately $2.8 million to get under the cap by Tuesday, the start of the new league year (and free agency).
Mays, who is listed at 5 feet 11 and 244 pounds, was limited to eight games in 2014 because of a wrist injury suffered during the preseason. He finished with 20 combined tackles in three starts in his only season with the Chiefs." READ MORE…
4. Chiefs can start with De'Anthony Thomas in effort to get more from passing game
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"De'Anthony Thomas didn't accomplish much offensively as a rookie. But he's someone the Kansas City Chiefs shouldn't overlook as they try to squeeze more from their passing game in general and their wide receivers in particular.
Thomas spent much of the two-plus months since the end of the season at the beach in Southern California, running pass routes in the sand to get ready for what lies ahead this spring in Kansas City.
"That's what I've been working on this offseason," Thomas said during a visit to Kansas City last week to accept his trophy as the Chiefs' rookie of the year. "I'm running all those routes in the sand. Once the time comes to come on the grass, I feel it's going to be a lot easier because I've prepared myself for it." READ MORE…
5. A new name at WR for Chiefs in Kiper's latest mock
By Adam Teicher - ESPN
"Analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has posted his latest mock draft . Again, Kiper gives a wide receiver to the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round but it's a different player than the receiver Kiper projected to the Chiefs in each of his first two mocks.
This time his pick for the Chiefs is Arizona State's Jaelen Strong. Strong had a good combine, running a 4.44 40. That time could be enough to convince the Chiefs he's worth the 18th pick in the first round." READ MORE…
