Watt had a pair of procedures to address his back problems and was limited to three games this season, but is expected back for next season. The prolific pass-rusher and run-stopper has been working out diligently at the Texans' training facility, running and lifting weights in recent months as he works to strengthen his surgically repaired back. Although it's unclear what type of activities Watt will be cleared to participate in this offseason, there's hope that he'll do some work during organized team activities. Watt has been gaining weight back now that he's cleared to lift weights. He had gotten much lighter to reduce the strain on his back and hadn't been able to maintain his bulk during his initial convalescence.

-- Afam Jones Court Update --
Mon Jan 16, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports court proceedings related to Cincinnati Bengals CB Adam Jones‘ arrest earlier this month following an incident at a Cincinnati hotel have been continued until February 10th. A judge made that decision last Friday after Jones’ attorneys agreed to waive his right to a speedy trial on charges of assault, disorderly conduct, obstructing official business and harassment with a bodily substance. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said late last week that his office “will pursue something” against Jones for behaving “boorishly and foolishly,” but that he wants and idea of what the NFL will do on the discipline front before deciding how to proceed. “One of the factors that goes into my decision is what the NFL’s going to do to him,” Deters said, via the Cincinnati Enquirer. “If he gets suspended for four games, he loses $2 million. We have drunken idiots every night over at the [jail] that don’t get fined $2 million.” Jones has been suspended twice in the past for all of the 2007 season and part of the 2008 campaign, which left his career prospects looking bleak. That outlook cleared after the Bengals signed him in 2010 as Jones has remained productive while staying on the field. The league is reviewing Jones’ case to see if that streak will end, but there’s no set timeline for them to make a ruling about disciplinary action for the cornerback.

-- Vikings Name Kennedy Polamalu --

TSN reports the Minnesota Vikings have named Kennedy Polamalu RBs coach.

-- Jerry Jones Mum on Tony Romo --
Mon Jan 16, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports Dallas cowboys GM Jerry Jones loves to talk about QB Tony Romo. So the Cowboys owner looked up during his postgame press conference as his soon-to-be former quarterback walked out of the locker room, knowing it was probably the last time he’d do so. “We just won’t address any of that until later on,” Jones said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “And I’m not going to quantify it in terms of days or weeks or whatever, but that will be in the future. . . . “That’s not for here. We’ll be talking and addressing those kinds of things as we move ahead here over the next weeks and months.” Once the Cowboys cast their lot with rookie QB Dak Prescott this season and kept him in place when Romo’s back fracture healed, it set the stage for an inevitable trade or release. And even falling behind 21-3 against the Packers never made it cross Jones’ mind to go to the 36-year-old on the bench. “No, I didn’t think about that,” Jones said.

-- Jason Witten Knows the End is Faily Near --
Mon Jan 16, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports when a reporter mentioned to the 34-year-old Dallas Cowboys TE Jason Witten last night that he had never been to the conference title game, Witten turned philosophical for a moment. “Yeah, I’m well aware of that,” Witten said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Obviously that’s something I realize, regardless of how many catches you have or any of that stuff, your legacy will be remembered as how you play in these certain situations in the playoffs, and that’s tough. It’s tough for me to swallow that. It’s not about any one individual. I’m proud of this team. I really have my whole career I’ve tried to work really hard to not make it about me, and that’s why there’s emotion that goes along with this. “I’m in my 14th year, and you know there’s a shelf life for everybody. You put everything you have into it, and when you come up short it’s tough. It’s not about a paycheck. It’s about an opportunity to compete and lead and win and play in these types of games. This team had a special feel all the way through, and to come up short like that for me is hard.” Witten has one more year on his contract, and 14 glorious years behind him, so he’s clearly getting closer to the end than the beginning. But he’s also still contributing at a high level, with six catches for 59 yards in yesterday’s loss to the Packers, including his first playoff touchdown. So there’s no reason to think he’s ready to walk away.

I don't know how long that will take. It doesn't change the fact that I enjoyed every bit of my career. I enjoyed 11 great years in New England and enjoyed two great years in Texas with unbelievable teammates."

-- Raiders Set to File to Move to Las Vegas; Would Remain in Oakland Until New Stadium is Built --
Sat Jan 14, 2017 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL.com reports the Raiders will file relocation papers to move from Oakland to Las Vegas, according to sources familiar with their thinking. After a year of planning, debate, and bold action, after many years of a sub-par stadium option in Oakland, the Raiders have made a firm decision on their future. The stunning move, one that should be made official in the coming days, is expected to add a new city to the NFL's ever-changing landscape. The Raiders would need 24 votes from the league's owners to formally make the move, a vote that will come this spring. The city of Oakland has made no progress to keep the team, sources say. It has not come up with a stadium proposal that league or independent sources believe is credible. At this point, it is only a matter of time before they officially leave. When the Raiders officially file, the league and its owners will begin a process that should take several weeks. The membership just went through a similar process before the Rams moved to Los Angeles and this one will be familiar. The filing would include a statement explaining the Raiders' decision, then potentially words from Goodell. There would be committee meetings to analyze the move from all sides, then a vote of all the owners. Between the analysis, vetting, and discussion, it's likely it would take about 4-6 weeks. That would set up a vote of the owners to send the Raiders to Vegas during the late-March league meetings in Arizona -- with 24 votes needing to pass. The other option would be to call a special league meeting, which doesn't appear likely. Owner Mark Davis has said publicly that even if the team moves, he plans on playing for the next couple seasons in Oakland while his new stadium is built. After that, pending the vote from the owners, it's off to Vegas, baby. Vegas.
