      The Saints signed Johnson on Wednesday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

      Analysis: Johnson has jumped between the Saints' 53-man roster and practice squad over the past three seasons, but in 17 appearances between 2014 and 2015, he totaled 12 carries for 31 yards and seven receptions (on 10 targets) for 45 yards. At the outset of the offseason, he'll be measuring himself against fellow fullback Toben Opurum.

      Dalton (thumb) has yet to begin throwing, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reports. "Not throwing yet because we are being very conservative with it," Dalton said this week. "I feel like I can throw but no reason to push anything right now. I have plenty of time now to get 100 percent."

      Analysis: The Bengals were knocked out on wild-card weekend, so it appears that Dalton may not have made an appearance in the postseason, even if his side reached the Super Bowl. Either way, he expects to attend a quarterback camp at USC in the coming months, while he'll have an opportunity to take part in Cincinnati's offseason program as early as April 18.

      Beason announced Wednesday that he will retire, Jordan Raanan of reports.

      Analysis: With word coming down earlier Wednesday that the Giants intended to release the veteran linebacker, Beason instead opted to announce his retirement. Beason had his career hampered by foot and knee injuries and as a 31-year-old linebacker, he hadn't played a full season since 2010 and only played double-digit games once in his final five seasons. He finishes his career with 526 total tackles, three forced fumbles, and 10 interceptions.

      Ward recorded seven tackles, an interception, a fumble recovery and a pass defensed in the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 win over the Panthers.

      Analysis: If not for Von Miller doing his best Lawrence Taylor impression, Ward would have had a pretty strong case for Super Bowl 50's MVP. In addition to thwarting a Carolina drive into Broncos' territory with a pick and scooping up Miller's second strip sack to all but put the game away, Ward helped keep Greg Olsen in check to the tune of 41 yards. Sure, Ward almost gave the ball back to Carolina after fumbling his interception, but history will remember him as a key cog in Denver's "No Fly Zone" and a force in Denver's dominant defensive victory.

      Ware collected five tackles and two sacks in Sunday's Super Bowl 50 victory over Carolina.

      Analysis: Ware ended any hopes of a big play to end Carolina's first half by nailing Cam Newton for a sack. Nearly an entire half later, Carolina was down two scores and in hurry-up mode. On 2nd and 10 Newton spun out, avoided Malik Jackson and found himself smothered by Ware for a 14-yard loss. Ware waited 11 years to make his first big playoff push and didn't disappoint. When Denver drafted Shane Ray in the first round and watched Shaq Barrett impress while Ware's back hampered him during the season, the veteran looked like a potential cap casualty. With 5.5 sacks in his final five games, however, Ware has changed the conversation.
