    Take them for what its worth. Always interesting to watch how it plays out.

    Browns will also monitor QB market, with Rex Grossman and Matt Schaub system fits there w/Kyle Shanahan. One of them will get signed

    Source also tell me OG Jon Asamoah will sign with the #Falcons for 4.5 million a year

    New post! Report: Chiefs Expressing Interest in WR Jason Avant http://bit.ly/1fm9Oxf

    Former Jets exec @AriNissim says he hears the Eagles, Raiders, Browns and Jets are all going to pursue Darrelle Revis.

    Revis early line. Highest Offer wins. (Other teams I've heard are Philly, Raiders, Browns, and Obviously Rex and the Jets) Rex loves him.

    Eagles WR DeSean Jackson likely OUT in Philadelphia

    Source: Cornerback & Former Redskin Carlos Rodgers would love to come back to Washington. Redskins are discussing #NFLFreeAgency

    I'm told wide out James Jones receiving heavy interest from the Detroit Lions & New York Jets...Green Bay Packers may still be in the mix..

    Report: Aqib Talib, Patriots 'Very Close' To Reaching Deal http://wp.me/p2AlCJ-1gzv

    I don't expect many RBs to get immediate free agent action, but Ben Tate's ties to Shanahan offense in Cleveland make him a natural...

    Looking more and more likely that the heaviest suitors for #Vikings DE Jared Allen are the #Broncos and #Raiders #NFLFreeAgency

    Word amongst insiders is the New York Jets are going hard after cornerback Vontae Davis.

    Source close to situation says #Patriots "very confident" deal w/ WR Julian Edelman will be finalized before tomorrow at 4 PM.

    "RT @DavisHsuSeattle: so many ppl connecting Tate with Jets..." Yep. Been also hearing, Carolina and Cleveland

    Dolphins released CB Dimitri Patterson, per source.

    CB Vontae Davis currently is expected to sign a contract on Tuesday -- but not with the Colts. Not over yet though.

    #Bears RB Michael Bush is being released, per source.

    DE Michael Bennett strikes deal with Seahawks. Four years. Terms coming.

    Keep going: RT @evansilva: Seems FS Jairus Byrd's price is already coming down. Initially said to be seeking $9M per yr, now reports say $8M

    A league source tells me WR Dexter McCluster will not be returning to KC. He has 4-5 suitors and will likely sign Tuesday night. #Chiefs

    The #Panthers are attempting to trade WR Steve Smith, per source. Given his $7M cap number and age (34), seems unlikely.

    Steve Smith's jersey has been removed from the Panthers online team store. Speculate what you will...

    49ers to cut CB Carlos Rogers, ESPN's Josina Anderson reports; move will save $5.1 million in cap space (ESPN) http://ift.tt/13TAcct #...

    Oh I wasn't trying to call you out and say its false. I'd love for them to lose that weapon. They 40 mil under cap. Kinda strange they would get all cheap with their star wr

    Antonio Cromartie says the "door's still open" for a possible return to Jets, but he will explore options with other teams. #nyj

    Top FA CB Alterraun Verner tells @MadDogRadio the Patriots are "definitely a possibility." Adds Devin McCourty has been "lobbying" for it.

    Pretty clear from Alterraun Verner's interview w/ @AdamSchein on @MadDogRadio that the #Jets would be his #1 choice.

    @ClaytonESPN: Jason Babin voided the final two years of his Jacksonville Jaguars contract and is now a free agent.

    #Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell said team keeping options open on DE Jason Babin, who has opted out of his deal and is a free agent.

    Some free-agent RBs not getting much play. But am told free-agent RB Darren McFadden has generated "significant interest."

    From @flasportsbuzz Soliai is down to three teams and Dolphins are not one of them. Soliai is aware he won’t be signing in Miami

    Source tells @FOXSports1 that @Chargers re-signed G Chad Rinehart to two-year, $6M contract with $2M guaranteed

    Aside from Arizona ILB Karlos Dansby, Ravens ILB Jameel McClain and Broncos DE/OLB Shaun Phillips also on Titans' radar

    .@DanWiederer reports #Bears closing in on a contract for LB D.J. Williams to return. http://bit.ly/1h7u6by

    Update on Austin Howard: Jets still trying to work out a deal w/him before start of FA. He's predictably fielded calls from other teams #nyj

    hearing that true guaranteed money in deal for DE Red Bryant is $5.255 million, so a low-risk move for #Jaguars

    Falcons making huge push to sign Champ Bailey

    #Rams are expected to release RG Harvey Dahl. When the move is made official it will free up $4 million in cap space. http://espn.go.com/blog/st-louis-rams/post/_/id/6557/rounding-up-rams-free-agent-interest…

    Panthers have re-signed FB/TE Richie Brockel to 2-yr deal, OL Garry Williams gets 1-yr deal.

    Source: if the #Bears release DE Julius Peppers, look for him to quickly join #Buccaneers on a incentive laden 2-3 year deal #NFLFreeAgency

    @RedZone_Moss hearing that #49ers are less optimistic that they will re-sign S Donte Whitner

    LM: #Bears have agreed to terms with DT Nate Collins and QB Jordan Palmer on 1-year contracts.

    Broncos expected to pursue free agent S Ward http://dlvr.it/567XFb

    On G Jon Asamoah and the #Falcons, 1 NFL source said it would be a "small upset" if he didn't wind up signing w/ATL to play RG.

    Report: Miami #Dolphins set to sign free agent Branden Albert to start at left tackle -- http://sunsent.nl/1fiGUJE

    Kansas City Chiefs offensive tackle Branden Albert is expected to sign with the Miami Dolphins for an average of $9.5 million annually.

    Feeling in industry circles is that cornerback is #Vikings' top FA priority at this point. Want to make sure they get at least one.

    Tom Heckert drafted him RT @MikeKlis: Broncos expected to pursue Cleveland SS T.J. Ward when market opens Thursday. http://www.denverpost.com/broncos/ci_25304448/broncos-could-be-better-playoffs-stronger-play-at…

    Lovie Smith wants a veteran QB, not ready to build team around Glennon http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap2000000332301/article/mike-glennon-to-face-veteran-competition-for-bucs-qb-job?campaign=Twitter_atl…


    #Eagles looking for edge rushers, but need may not be great. One name to consider: Mike Neal. Handicapping the field: http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/eagles/249213111.html…

    Two interesting & somewhat surprising names on Jets Persons of Interest list: 49ers S Donte Whitner & Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew #nyj

    Jets looking to revamp/upgrade what was a shaky secondary in 2013. Casting a wide net. Dolphins S Chris Clemons is also on #NYJ's radar

    Perhaps, FOR ONCE, Jones is shutting his mouth and not tipping his hand (if he has one)

    We are not well under the cap (yet). Last I heard. 1.1 mill. We will only be active for smaller fish aside from potentially Spencer or hatcher. I had completely written off hatch but appears marinelli is putting on full court press.

    • The Dolphins are “gearing up for another big year in free agency,” writes Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. One of their big targets? Bill S Jairus Byrd.

    • Denver is expected to pursue Browns S T.J. Ward when the market opens Tuesday, per Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

    • Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun believes the tackle market will shake out like this: the Rams’ Rodger Saffold is expected to sign with the Raiders, but he’s still in talks with the Buccaneers; the Raiders’ Jared Veldheer is expected to sign with the Cardinals; the Bengals’ Anthony Collins will sign with the Bucs, “provided that he doesn’t re-sign with the Bengals.” Chiefs OT Branden Albert is expected to sign with the Dolphins.

    • Upgrading the secondary appears to be a priority in Washington. The Redskins have expressed interest in Pats CB Aqib Talib and Panthers S Mike Mitchell, reports Mike Jones of the Washington Post. Washington has also expressed interest in Bills S Jairus Byrd. “Talks not at a serious point yet, though,” Jones writes.

    • Chris Johnson will be hitting the trade block very soon, reports ProFootballTalk. “If the Titans can find no takers, they will cut him.”

    The Eagles have been playing it smart. Jackson is WR and WRs don't need top be paid over the top money. Tops the Eagles salary and they got him to perform since 2008. Simply time to move on. The eagles got 6 seasons without totally breaking open the saved cap space this season. Like I said smart.
