--The Cincinnati Bengals signed veteran free agent linebacker Michael Boley to add depth to their roster.
Boley (6-foot-3, 230 pounds) is a ninth-year NFL player. He played four seasons for the New York Giants (2008-12) after spending four years with the Atlanta Falcons (2005-08). He started 102 of 121 career NFL games, and he started five postseason games.
--The New York Giants waived running back Da'Rel Scott to create a roster spot for offensive lineman Dallas Reynolds.
Reynolds, a 14-game starter for the Philadelphia Eagles last season, fortifies a Giants offensive line that has been ravaged by injuries through an 0-4 start. Giants starting center David Baas missed last week's game with a neck injury and right guard Chris Snee has a hip injury that reportedly could sideline him for the remainder of the season. Offensive lineman David Diehl has not played this season due to a thumb injury.
--Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, a former NFL Defensive Player of the Year, told ESPN that commissioner Roger Goodell "most definitely had a hand" in the 34-minute partial power outage at this year's Super Bowl. It occurred in the third quarter with the Ravens leading the 49ers 28-6.
"I thought he had a hand in it," Suggs told E:60.
San Francisco rallied with 17 consecutive points and had a chance to go ahead with a touchdown in the final minute before stalling inside the 5-yard line.
--Former NFL linebacker Rolando McClain, who retired at age 24 just three years into his pro career after multiple off-the-field problems, wants to resume his NFL career, his agent said.
McClain was drafted No. 8 overall by the Oakland Raiders in 2010, signing a five-year, $40 million rookie contract. He was arrested multiple times, and he was suspended by the Raiders near the end of his third season.
