Sat Jan 3122:13Aaron Rodgers: Named 2014 NFL MVPAaron RodgersQBPackersThe Squirts
Rodgers (calf) has been named the AP 2014 NFL Most Valuable Player, NFL.com reports.
Rodgers will be awarded his second MVP award after a season where he racked up 4,381 passing yards and a spectacular 38:5 touchdown to interception ratio. Although he dealt with a calf injury that limited his mobility in the later parts of the season, the 31-year-old was still able to lead Green Bay to the NFC Championship game, where the Packers nearly knocked off the defending Super Bowl champions. One of his main weapons, receiver Randall Cobb, is set to become a free agent this offseason, but other than that, the majority of his weapons should remain in tact, setting Rodgers up for another big statistical season in 2015.
Sat Jan 3121:17J.J. Watt: Named 2014 Defensive POYJ.J. WattDETexansFree Agent
Watt has been named the AP 2014 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, NFL.com reports.
Watt caps off a historic season with the hardware to prove it, as the 25-year-old defensive end collected 20.5 sacks and five total touchdowns. The IDP star has now racked up 51.5 total sacks over the last three seasons combined, and led the league in 2014 with 50 quarterback hits. He's just the second player every to win the award twice in three seasons, and will almost certainly be the preseason favorite to do so again in 2015. Heading in to next season, Watt should be the No. 1 defensive player taken in fantasy drafts in nearly every format.

Coach Pete Carroll said Chancellor (knee) "remarkably looked great" during Saturday's walkthrough, John Boyle of the Everett Herald reports.
Chancellor's knee injury was believed to be very minor almost as soon as it occurred Friday, and Saturday's report only seems to reinforce that idea. Chancellor looks highly likely to play Sunday.
Fri Jan 3019:36Kam Chancellor: Suffers Knee Injury FridayKam ChancellorSSeahawksFree Agent
Chancellor suffered a knee injury on the next-to-last play of Friday's practice and missed the final play of the session. However, the Seahawks have officially listed him as probable for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Patriots, The Seattle Times reports.
Chancellor had to be helped up before missing the final play, and was spotted wearing a wrap on his left knee, but didn't have a limp according to the report. Unless the knee injury worsens over the next few days, Chancellor should be on the field for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Patriots.
Fri Jan 3019:24Thomas (shoulder) officially probable for Sunday's Super Bowl ag...Earl ThomasSSeahawksFree Agent
Thomas (shoulder) is officially probable for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Patriots.
Thomas was a full participant in practice all week, and given the magnitude of Sunday's contest, there is almost no chance he will miss the Super Bowl.
Fri Jan 3019:21Sherman (elbow) officially probable for Sunday's Super Bowl agai...Richard ShermanCBSeahawksFree Agent
Sherman (elbow) is officially probable for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Patriots.
Sherman was a full participant in practice Wednesday, as has been the case ever since the NFC Championship Game. Barring an unexpected occurrence, Sherman will almost certainly play in Sunday's Super Bowl.
Fri Jan 3019:18Lynch (back) officially probable for Super Bowl on Sunday agains...Marshawn LynchRBSeahawksClayCounty
Lynch (back) is officially probable for the Super Bowl on Sunday against the Patriots.
Lynch was a full participant in practice Wednesday, which goes against the norm of him sitting out early in the week. There is no way he would miss the Super Bowl barring an unforeseen circumstance.

The Cardinals aren't counting on having Washington available for 2015, azcardinals.com reports.
Washington was suspended for the entire 2014 season for a repeat violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, and he'll likely be suspended again for a subsequent domestic-violence assault conviction. A mandatory six-game ban would seem to represent Washington's best-case scenario, but his history and the details of the incident could perhaps warrant a longer suspension. While he was one of the league's top defensive players not too long ago, Washington won't necessarily get back to that level, if he plays in 2015.
Thu Jan 2917:52Collie has signed with CFL's British Columbia LionsAustin CollieWRColtsFree Agent
Collie has signed with the CFL's British Columbia Lions, Tom James of the Terre Haute Tribune-Star reports.
Known largely for his track record of concussions, the 29-year-old Collie will look to continue his playing career in the CFL, after spending a season away from the game. He caught 54+ passes in three consecutive seasons with the Colts from 2009 to 2011.
Thu Jan 2913:38Dwyer has plead guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct chargeJonathan DwyerRBSteelersFree Agent
Dwyer has plead guilty to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge, Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports.
Dwyer will be sentenced to 18 months of probation, as well as community service. The 25-year-old back was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list back in September amidst allegations of aggravated assault, but he'll effectively plea to a lesser charge. It sounds like Dwyer will avoid jail time, but his future in the NFL remains unclear.
Thu Jan 2912:07Foles claims his collarbone has fully healedNick FolesQBEaglesFree Agent
Foles claims his collarbone has fully healed, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Foles added that he would have been able to play had the Eagles made the playoffs, suggesting he isn't greatly bothered by any lingering effects. The three-year veteran should effectively be ready to perform at the start of training camp, though he's set to be a free agent in 2016, and has been the subject of many offseason trade rumors. Until further notice, the 26-year-old is the Eagles' projected starter for 2015, and if he can hang on to the job, there's plenty of fantasy potential to be had in this fast-paced offense.
Thu Jan 2909:42Broyles likely down to final chance with Lions come 2015 seasonRyan BroylesWRLionsFree Agent
Broyles is likely down to final chance with Lions come the 2015 season, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Though he was healthy for the first time in his career, Broyles appeared in just five games with only two catches for 25 yards. Lions GM Martin Mayhew made the point that Broyles will be a year removed from his ruptered Achilles tendon injury entering training camp so he may be a bit faster- which he will probably need to make the Lions roster for the 2015 season.

Lynch was a full participant in Wednesday's practice despite being listed on the Seahawks' injury report with a back injury, The Seattle Times reports.
Lynch was usually held out of Wednesday practices during the regular season, but he gave it a go this week with the Super Bowl on the horizon. Don't expect the back injury to slow him down in Sunday's game.
Wed Jan 2823:09Sherman (elbow) listed as full participant in Wednesday's practi...Richard ShermanCBSeahawksFree Agent
Sherman (elbow) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice, The Seattle Times reports.
Sherman has practiced fully every day since injuring his elbow in the NFC Championship Game, so expect to see him on the field in Sunday's Super Bowl.
Wed Jan 2823:07Thomas (shoulder) listed as full participant in Wednesday's prac...Earl ThomasSSeahawksFree Agent
Thomas (shoulder) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's practice, The Seattle Times reports.
Thomas missed two days of practice last week before getting in a limited session Friday, but it now appears he is near or back at full speed. Expect the Seahawks to take the necessary precautions over the next couple days to ensure Thomas is ready to go for Sunday's Super Bowl.
Wed Jan 2821:41LaFell (toe) not listed on Wednesday's injury reportBrandon LaFellWRPanthersFree Agent
LaFell (toe) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report.
LaFell's absence suggests his toe is improving, as the wideout should be all but a lock to play in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Daniels racked up 41 tackles (29 solo) and 5.5 sacks in 16 games during the 2014 season.
Daniels' numbers were hardly eye-popping played the most snaps of any Packers defensive lineman in 2014. He figures to again play a prominent role for the squad during the 2015 campaign, and should have a little extra motivation in the final year of his rookie contract.
Wed Jan 2816:41Hayward tallied 43 tackles (33 solo), three interceptions, two f...Casey HaywardCBPackersFree Agent
Hayward tallied 43 tackles (33 solo), three interceptions, two fumble recoveries, and a defensive touchdown in 16 games during the 2014 season.
Hayward showed a nose for the football despite playing primarily in nickel and dime defenses during 2014. His role in 2015 will largely depend on whether or not the Packers bring back one or both of pending free agents -- and fellow cornerbacks -- Tramon Williams and Davon House.
