The Bills have medically cleared QB Tyrod Taylor following groin surgery Jan. 5, a team source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. That clears the path for Taylor to pass a physical if the Bills choose to release him, preventing a situation where Taylor would have been owed a $27.5 million injury guarantee.

Bills' Tyrod Taylor, who has $27.5M option bonus due March 11, has been medically cleared from last month's groin surgery, per team source.

The Vikings made a strong push for former Browns cornerback K'Waun Williams, who signed with the 49ers tonight, but Williams' familiarity with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and defensive backs coach Jeff Hafley helped put San Francisco over the top. Especially as Williams returns from an ankle injury, his prior relationship with the 49ers' staff weighed into his decision.

About the possibility of Jay Cutler ending up in Arizona, a Cardinals source told me: "Not a chance."

Former Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans has been hired by the 49ers as defensive quality control coach.

The 49ers addition of DeMeco Ryans as defensive quality control coach is an interesting one. Ryans played for the Houston Texans when Kyle Shanahan was there as offensive coordinator and stopped playing after the 2015 season. He's a former first-team All Pro linebacker. This is his first coaching job in the NFL.

As expected, the 49ers officially named John Benton as their offensive line coach on Tuesday. Benton was the last major hire needed for coach Kyle Shanahan's staff. The team also added six more coaches in assistant roles. Those coaches are: Daniel Bullocks | Assistant Defensive Backs Michael Clay | Strength & Conditioning Assistant Stan Kwan | Assistant Special Teams Vince Oghobaase | Assistant Defensive Line DeMeco Ryans | Defensive Quality Control Adam Stenavich | Assistant Offensive Line
