My five cents

1 The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to release Blaine Gabbert, draft a quarterback with the third overall pick and try to re-sign Chad Henne, who is a free agent. They want Henne to return as a backup and a mentor. Gabbert, the 10th overall pick in the 2011 draft, finished his Jacksonville career with a 5-22 record, 22 touchdowns, 24 interceptions and a 66.4 passer rating.

2 Where does Josh Freeman go from here? He is a free agent after going 0-3 with Tampa Bay and 0-1 with Minnesota this season.

3 New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck is a free agent, but wants to return. The Giants, though, might move on without him. Tuck, 31 in March, had his best season since 2010 with 11 sacks.

4 Cleveland might be the best coaching job available, other than the fact that the new coach will be the third in 13 months. The Browns have the second-youngest team in the NFL. They have 10 draft picks, including two in the first round. And they have five Pro Bowlers, all of whom are under 30 years old. Cleveland looks a lot like Kansas City did last season.

5 Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger played every snap of a season (1,023) for the first time in his career. He previously played in all 16 games just once in his 10 years but never every snap.
