UNDATED (AP) -- Peyton Manning has passed his physical and signed his revised contract with the Denver Broncos.
The five-time MVP agreed to a $4 million pay cut to $15 million, but he can earn all of it back through incentives.
Manning mulled retirement after the Broncos' playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts. But he determined he still had the health and hunger to keep playing at age 39.
-- Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett has signed a two-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers that will keep him in the NFC West after playing all of his 10 NFL seasons with Arizona. Agent Drew Rosenhaus confirmed the deal. The 33-year-old Dockett sat out all of 2014 with a season-ending knee injury suffered during training camp. He started every game for the Cardinals in 2013, finishing with 46 tackles and 4 1/2 sacks.
-- The NFL says Panthers defensive end and soon-to-be free agent Greg Hardy will be allowed to sign a new contract even if he remains on the commissioner's exempt list. He still faces a possible suspension from the league even though his conviction on two counts of domestic violence was dismissed Feb. 9 following a successful appeal.
-- Vince Wolfork says the Patriots have told him they won't pick up his option. The formidable defensive tackle has spent his entire 11-year career with New England, helping to win two Super Bowls.
UNDATED (AP) -- Some outright regular season conference titles can be clinched tonight as part of a four-game top 25 schedule.

Seventh-ranked Wisconsin can wrap up the Big Ten regular season title on the road against Minnesota. Badgers star forward Frank Kaminsky tries to add to his player-of-the-year credentials. He heads into the game averaging 18.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 blocks. Kaminsky is shooting 41 percent from 3-point range and 54 percent from the field overall.
No. 13 Utah is at Washington State tonight. The Utes can still stay in contention for at least a share of the Pac-12 regular season title with a win and Arizona loss.
No. 18 Arkansas is at South Carolina to round out the schedule.
UNDATED (AP) -- If the adage that defense wins championships is true, the Trail Blazers could be on their way to an NBA title.
Portland has held opponents under 100 points a league-leading 38 times in 59 games. The Trail Blazers will try to shut down Dallas tonight as part of a two-game schedule. Northwest Division-leading Portland has won four in a row. The teams have split their two games this season.
Russell Westbrook tries to extend a remarkable run when he leads Oklahoma City into a meeting with Central-Division leading Chicago tonight. The Thunder guard has strung together four triple doubles, including one against Philadelphia last night. Westbrook is coming off surgery Saturday for a fractured bone in his cheek.
The bang-up Bulls are wrapping up a seven-game homestand on which they've gone 4-2. Chicago is playing without its starting backcourt of Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler, who are sidelined with injuries.
