      Freeney plans to play another season in 2015, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

      Analysis: Scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next week, Freeney has just nine sacks in 34 games over the last three seasons. While not the gameplan-ruining monster he once was, he seemingly has enough left in the tank to keep contributing as a situational pass rusher. Now 35 years old, Freeney has long been out of the IDP conversation.

      Moore was released by the Steelers on Monday, Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

      Analysis: Moore dealt with a groin injury early in the season and never established any kind of consistent role in the Pittsburgh offense. Now heading into his age-32 campaign, the former Saint may need to compete for a roster spot wherever he lands, despite being just three years removed from a 1,000-yard season. New Orleans would be a logical landing spot, but even in that scenario, Moore probably wouldn't have a big role in the offense.

      Orlovsky signed a one-year deal with the Lions on Monday, the team's official website reports.

      Analysis: Once again forced to make some difficult personnel decisions, the Lions will go cheap at the backup quarterback spot, allowing for spending elsewhere. The team does seem to value Orlovsky to some extent, as it would be even cheaper to go with either Kellen Moore or a late-round pick in the upcoming draft. Still, Orlovsky has never impressed when given the chance, and he's probably one of the lesser backup quarterbacks in the league.

      Jones signed a two-year contract with the Eagles on Monday.

      Analysis: Recently released by the Packers, Jones struggled with both injuries and ineffective play in 2014, but he does have 36 career starts to his name. He's a candidate to start next to Mychal Kendricks in Philly's 3-4 defense, but Jones probably won't have a three-down role, even if he gets the job. So long as Kendricks stays healthy, Jones is unlikely to emerge as an IDP option.

      Bryant officially received the franchise tag from the Cowboys on Monday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill reports.

      Analysis: Bryant and the Cowboys will now try to iron out a long-term contract. While the situation will certainly grab headlines, there's little question that he'll have a star on his helmet in 2015.
