|NFL playoff expansion delayed, LA relocations pondered (AFP)|
National Football League team owners postponed a possible expansion of playoff qualifiers for another year and are looking intently at possible relocation of one or two clubs to Los Angeles. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday other issues discussed by the owners included looking at a possible punishment for Greg Hardy in a domestic violence case that did not result in charges and that there is no timeframe for a resolution in the deflated ball investigation into the New England Patriots. Owners had considered adding at least two new teams into the playoff mix and at least two more games to the opening week of the NFL playoffs, possibly with games on Thursday or Monday. The Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams and San Diego Chargers are all looking into a potential move to Los Angeles, which has not been called home by an NFL club since the 1994 season.

|Report: Cowboys negotiating with free agent Greg Hardy (Shutdown Corner)|
Maybe the Cowboys are the ? mystery team ? Drew Rosenhaus, the agent of free agent defensive end Greg Hardy, was referring to. According to Mike Fisher of 105.3 The Fan in Dallas , the Cowboys are currently ?negotiating to sign? Greg Hardy, who only played in one game for Carolina in 2014. Hardy was convicted of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend last year, but the case was dismissed on Feb. 9 after Hardy asked for a jury trial and his accuser refused to cooperate and failed to show for court. Hardy played in Week 1 for the Panthers last year, but was deactivated the following week as his legal issues played out and heat surrounding domestic violence in the NFL intensified. On Sept. 17, Hardy agreed to be placed on the commissioner?s exempt list and he did not play for the rest of the season. The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Hardy was extremely productive for the Panthers before his legal issues popped up in 2014. He combined for 18 sacks in his first three seasons before breaking out with 59 tackles and 15 sacks in 2013. He would certainly provide a boost for the Dallas defense, but is his production worth all of the baggage? That?s a question the folks in the Cowboys? front office will have to ask themselves. On top of that, Peter King of The MMQB is reporting that there?s a ?good chance? Hardy will be suspended for the first six games of the 2015 season. That?s another thing the Cowboys will have to look into. - - - - - - - Sam Cooper is a contributor for the Yahoo Sports blogs. Have a tip? Email him or follow him on Twitter! Follow @SamDCooper

|DeMarco Murray to visit Eagles Thursday (NBC on Yahoo Sports)|
The market for DeMarco Murray is heating up, and the Eagles are reportedly ready to steal him away from their division rivals. Murray, the Cowboys? two-time Pro Bowl halfback and last season?s NFL leading rusher, is flying to Philadelphia on Thursday for a meeting with the Eagles, a source told CSN?s Derrick Gunn. Earlier on Wednesday, new Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford, a former college teammate of Murray?s at Oklahoma, said he?s been lobbying Murray into a reunion in Philly (see video) . Murray?s visit could be a serious indication of his plans to move on from Dallas or a ploy to get the Cowboys to raise their offer. Murray, who totaled 2,261 yards last season and scored 13 touchdowns, is a strong, powerful runner who averages 4.8 yards per carry for his career. The Eagles are looking for a primary ball carrier after trading LeSean McCoy, the franchise?s all-time leading rusher and 2013 NFL rushing champion, to the Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso and major cap relief. They initially had their sights set on Frank Gore but the former 49ers halfback ducked out of an agreement to sign with the Colts. Right now, the only running backs on the Eagles? roster who?ve ever carried the ball in an NFL game are Chris Polk, veteran Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner. Matt Tucker has spent most of the last two seasons on the practice squad. Technically, Polk is a restricted free agent but the Eagles are expected to retain him on the lowest-level tender. The Eagles did agree to a three-year, $11.5 million deal with veteran running back Ryan Mathews on Wednesday, a source confirmed to Gunn (see story) . Mathews tweeted at 7:46 p.m. that he landed in Philly . Murray, a 2011 third-round pick and two-time Pro Bowler, had problems staying healthy in his first two seasons but has emerged as one of the game?s best runners over the past two seasons with over 2,900 rushing yards combined in 2013 and 2014. He led the NFL last season with 392 carries, 1,845 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns. - Geoff Mosher, CSN Philly, NBC Sports
