There were a pair of big developments in the NFL on Monday and we’ll be catching up on the fallout from both of them during Tuesday’s edition of PFT Live.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill agreed to a contract extension with the Dolphins that should keep him in Miami for the next six years. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald will join Mike Florio to discuss what the structure of the deal means in terms of the team’s faith in Tannehill and what the quarterback has to do to continue improving after landing his deal.

Across the country, meanwhile, the 49ers were saying farewell to defensive end Justin Smith. Smith decided to retire after 14 years and a couple of months of contemplation this offseason, which has us looking to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area for some information about what the 49ers defense will look like after the retirement of another veteran.

PFT Live: Patriots talk with Ben Volin, PFT Planet calls and tweets

D'USSE Presents Fight Weekend At Marquee Las Vegas Hosted By JAY Z Getty Images

When the Patriots launched a website to respond to the Wells Report into DeflateGate and contest the punishments that the NFL handed down as a result of Wells’s findings, they took issue with the notion that they were uncooperative with the investigation.

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reported more on that front, including a quote from an NFL source dismissing the Patriots’ argument that their decision not to produce Jim McNally for a second interview with Ted Wells constituted a failure to cooperate. Volin will join Mike Florio on Monday’s edition of PFT Live to discuss that topic and others having to with a story that hasn’t deflated a bit since the report was released a couple of weeks ago.

Florio will also welcome Joe Buscaglia of WKBW to discuss the latest about Bills quarterback EJ Manuel and Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram for some talk about the Cowboys.
