• Arrest warrants are expected to be issued for Bills running back and former Pitt star LeSean McCoy and three other suspects in connection with an alleged nightclub assault on off-duty police officers in Philadelphia, according to multiple reports. WPVI -TV reported investigators recommended McCoy be one of the individuals charged with aggravated assault.

• Former Steelers Hall of Famer Lynn Swann isn't sure wide receiver Calvin Johnson belongs in the Hall of Fame, according to multiple reports. Johnson, a six-time Pro Bowler, is reportedly retiring. “I would think that it would be difficult for Calvin Johnson at this point to be considered a Hall of Famer,” Swann told the Detroit News. “Calvin Johnson has an extreme amount of talent and ability, but when you start to look at his team, the success of his team and did he lift that team; he made them a little bit better, but at the end of the day, I'm not quite sure.” In nine NFL seasons, Johnson has two playoff appearances and no postseason wins.

• The Giants announced linebacker Jon Beason retired and offensive linemen Will Beatty and Geoff Schwartz were released.

• Former NFL receiver Josh Morgan accidentally shot himself with his own gun, according to multiple reports. The 30-year-old Morgan, who played seven seasons with the 49ers, Redskins and Bears, claimed to be “cleaning his gun” when the weapon accidentally discharged, causing non-critical injuries that required him to be hospitalized.

• Browns linebacker Armonty Bryant was indicted on two felony drug charges. Bryant and former teammate De'Ante Saunders were arrested on Christmas following a traffic stop. Police say they found marijuana, prescription drugs and a loaded handgun in Saunders' car. He also was cited for drunken driving. The Browns later released him from their practice squad.
