With WRs coach Joe Judge moving on to become Giants head coach, the Patriots have begun the process of bolstering their offensive staff by bringing aboard Jedd Fisch in a yet-to-be-determined role, a source confirms to ESPN's Lindsey Thiry. The 43-year-old Fisch is a well-traveled coaching peer of offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels who was described as "smart, innovative, hard-working" by one former staffer who worked closely with him. His primary expertise is in the passing game/QBs.

The Cowboys have hired George Edwards as a senior defensive assistant, according to sources. He will work with linebackers as well as focusing on sub-package defenses. He was Minnesota's defensive coordinator the last six seasons. Also Markus Paul will continue to serve as the head strength and conditioning coach, a role he had with Mike Woicik the last two seasons on Jason Garrett's staff.

GM Brian Gutekunst said it's his understanding that TE Jimmy Graham wants to play next year. Graham is under contract with the Packers for 2020 for $8 million, the final year of his three-year deal. He admitted Graham's numbers weren't what Graham probably wanted them to be, but he liked having veterans like Graham and Marcedes Lewis around the team.

Run defense will no doubt be a focus this offseason, and that starts up the middle at inside linebacker. "Obviously, Blake Martinez's (contract) is up," GM Brian Gutekunst said. "We're going to have to take a long look at inside linebacker and make sure we're squared away there."

GM Brian Gutekunst disagreed with the idea that 12th overall pick Rashan Gary didn't contribute much as a rookie. "I thought he contributed quite a bit," Gutekunst said. "He didn't see a normal amount of snap time from a first-round draft pick but when he was in there, I thought he impacted the game. His explosiveness off the edge was evident. I'm excited to see what he can do."

GM Brian Gutekunst didn't hide the fact that NT Kenny Clark's contract extension will be a priority between now and the start of training camp. "I'm optimistic we will come to an agreement at some point," he said.

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst noted that different receivers stepped up at different times -- he specifically mentioned Allen Lazard -- but "we didn't have the consistency." He admitted: "That will be a position we look to add (to.)."

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst won't be able to go as wild in free agency this spring as he did last year, saying there will be "a little bit more restrictions if we're going to do everything we want with the guys who are here." However, he said they're in "pretty sound financially" and will have "plenty of opportunities to do what we want to do."

Eli Manning's retirement press conference is taking place in the Giants field house to accommodate the expected large crowd. Never in my eight years covering the team have I seen a setup like this in the field house. But the auditorium wouldn't have provided enough room for this farewell.
