Redskins will release Randle El

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/04/redskins-will-release-randle-el/

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 4, 2010 4:37 PM ET

Antwaan Randle El's days with the Washington Redskins appear to be over.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Redskins will release Randle El today.

In 2009, Randle El lost his spot in the starting lineup, although he did play enough on offense to accumulate 50 catches for 530 yards. Randle El was a major disappointment returning punts, to the point that Joe Theismann opined that even he could do a better job.

The 30-year-old Randle El, who spent four seasons in Washington, will now be an unrestricted free agent.

Bucs trim a trio

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/04/bucs-trim-a-trio/

Posted by Mike Florio on March 4, 2010 4:34 PM ET

Last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers unloaded a bunch of veteran players.

This year, on the eve of free agency, they've cut only three. And two of them are punters.

Gone are Josh Bidwill and Dirk Johnson. Also gone is cornerback Torrie Cox.

Bidwell spent six years in Tampa; Johnson arrived last year as an injury replacement. Cox was a sixth-round draft pick of the team in 2003.

Bengals cut Laveranues Coles

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/04/bengals-cut-laveranues-coles/

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 4, 2010 3:44 PM ET

Laveranues Coles is on the open market.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced today that they terminated Coles' contract, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Coles had a disappointing 2009 season for the Bengals, catching 43 passes for 514 yards and five touchdowns while making almost $10 million. But Bengals coach Marvin Lewis praised Coles' contributions.

"Laveranues really came in and added a sense of professionalism that that room needed -- severely," Lewis said. "And he did a great job in that and was a great professional."

But for Coles, doing a great job wasn't enough to keep his job.

Chargers change their minds on Sproles

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/04/chargers-change-their-minds-on-sproles/

Posted by Mike Florio on March 4, 2010 3:37 PM ET

Last week, the Chargers decided not to issue any restricted free agency tender to running back Darren Sproles. We'd been told that they opted not to even use the low-level "right of first refusal" tender because they feared owing him 110 percent of his 2009 franchise player salary.

But now they've changed their minds. Instead of going with the lowest level, however, they've decided to push the offer to the other end of the spectrum.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Chargers have applied the highest tender to Sproles, guaranteeing them a first-round and third-round pick if he leaves, and guaranteeing Sproles nearly $7.3 million in salary for 2010.

Sproles reportedly was scheduled to visit the Chiefs, Rams, Eagles, and Redskins -- an amazing itinerary given that the mere lining up of visits before midnight on the first day of free agency constitutes tampering per se.

The Chargers could still trade him, but whoever gets him will be dealing with contractual demands premised on first-year compensation of $7.27 million.

The move also could jack up the market for the various running backs who are and soon will be available, especially since the Chargers are paying so much money for a return specialist and a third-down tailback. Then again, maybe the Chargers have decided to use Sproles like the Jaguars used Maurice Jones-Drew after Fred Taylor left, as a guy who is on the field more often -- and who gets more opportunities to make things happen.

Regardless of the manner in which the uncapped year unfolds, the Chargers already have scored a major coup. In a capped year, they would have had five key unrestricted free agents whom they would have had to sign to new deals or let walk away: Sproles, linebacker Shawne Merriman, left tackle Marcus McNeill, receiver Vincent Jackson, receiver Malcom Floyd. The franchise tag would have been available for only one of them.

In an uncapped year, the Chargers are able to keep them all, at a total payout of less than $20 million.

Cardinals release Antrel Rolle

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/04/cardinals-release-antrel-rolle/

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 4, 2010 4:07 PM ET

The Arizona Cardinals have released safety Antrel Rolle.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus pointed out on Twitter that Rolle is free to sign with all 32 teams, and because he was released, the "Final Eight" rule does not apply to him.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic reports that the Cardinals hope to re-sign Rolle as a free agent. If they want him, they'd better be prepared to pay him a significant amount of money, as Rolle reportedly wants $8 million a year.

The Cardinals were widely expected to cut Rolle, as he was due a $4 million roster bonus tomorrow, and had a base salary of $8 million for the 2010 season.

Saints say farewell to three veterans

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/04/saints-say-farewell-to-three-veterans/

Posted by Mike Florio on March 4, 2010 6:33 PM ET

The Saints announced on Thursday that two players have been released today, and that one will be cut tomorrow.

Out as of right now are linebacker Mark Simoneau and offensive lineman Jamar Nesbit.

Out as of Friday will be defensive end Charles Grant.

Per NFLPA records, the moves clear out more than $6 million in 2010 base salary, including $4 million that Grant alone would have earned.

Grant was a first-round pick in 2002. He has been subject to a four-game suspension for StarCaps, which the league has delayed enforcing pending the outcome of the litigation filed by Vikings defensive tackles Pat and Kevin Williams.

Posted by Mike Florio on March 4, 2010 6:44 PM ET

Veteran defensive tackle Damione Lewis, the first of three first-round picks by the Rams in 2001, has been cut by the Panthers, a league source tells us.

Lewis signed with the Panthers as an unrestricted free agent in 2006. He started all 16 games in 2009 for the first time in his career.

Signed through 2014, Lewis was due to earn $755,000 this season.

His biggest impact came in Week One, when he crossed the goal line and dove on Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, breaking at least one rib. Inexplicably, Lewis was not fined.

Cornerback Fred Smoot, defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin, running back Ladell Betts and quarterback Todd Collins were also released as the Redskins cleared salary cap space in the first major moves under new coach Mike Shanahan.

The Redskins need to get younger after a 4-12 season, and Thursday's moves point the team in that direction. Seven of the players are at least 30 years old. Also, 32-year-old left tackle Chris Samuels announced his expected retirement due to a neck injury.

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 4, 2010 8:25 PM ET

Ravens quarterback Troy Smith has made no secret that he wants out of Baltimore. He's got his chance.

Smith's agent Ralph Cindrich tweeted that Smith was tendered at the original round level; the Ravens will only get a fifth-round pick if he signs an offer sheet and goes elsewhere.

Quarterback John Beck was also tendered, so the Ravens have a backup in place if Smith leaves. The decision by Baltimore appears to be inviting a possible trade.

The question now becomes whether there is any market for Smith.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Carolina Panthers have cut Jake Delhomme, just over a year after they gave him a lucrative contract extension only to watch him have his worst season as a pro.

Agent Rick Smith confirmed the move late Thursday. It signals the Panthers intend to go with Matt Moore or someone new at quarterback for the first time since Delhomme burst onto the scene in 2003 and led Carolina to the Super Bowl.

After committing six turnovers in a playoff loss to end the 2008 season, Delhomme had 18 interceptions last year before being sidelined for the final five games with a broken finger.

The Panthers still owe the 35-year-old Delhomme about $12.5 million in guaranteed money.

Carolina also released veteran defensive tackle Damione Lewis.

Nate Burleson agreed to a five-year, $25 million deal from the Detroit Lions, according to a source.

In going to Detroit, Burleson will reunite with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. Under Linehan, Burleson had his best season in 2004 when he caught 68 passes for 1,006 yards.

According to the source, Burleson will receive $11 million in guarantees.

Burleson, 28, was considered one of the top receivers in free agency. He had been with the Seahawks the past four seasons. His contract voided this year, making him an unconditional free agent.

Bears bag Brandon Manumaleuna

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/05/bears-bag-brandon-manumaleuna/

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 5, 2010 7:31 AM ET

Even before he became a free agent, the Chicago Bears never tried to hide their interest in tight end Brandon Manumaleuna. So it's no surprise that just hours after he became a free agent, Manumaleuna agreed to a deal with the Bears.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that Manumaleuna will sign a five-year contract with the Bears today, pending a physical.

Manumaleuna arrived at O'Hare airport Friday morning and confirmed that he has joined the Bears and is excited about playing for coaches he already knows from his days with the St. Louis Rams.

"I played for Mike Martz and Lovie Smith was the defensive coordinator. It was a great situation," Manumaleuna said. "This team has a chance to be real successful."

Although the signing will raise more questions about tight end Greg Olsen's role in Martz's offense, the Tribune reports that the more immediate question is about tight end Desmond Clark, who has a $475,000 roster bonus due today.

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 5, 2010 2:36 AM ET
With one season left on a five year deal, the Panthers released defensive tackle Ma'ake Kemoeatu Friday morning, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The former Raven tore his Achilles' tendon last July and plans to be ready to play football again by training camp.

The mammoth run stopper had a rocky stay in Carolina that included more disappointment than success. Still, it's hard not to see the gaping holes now on Carolina's defensive line.

"Kemo" will be of interest to 3-4 teams out there willing to take a gamble. There are only so many 345--pound run guys out there.

Gary Brackett reaches five-year deal with Colts

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/05/gary-brackett-reaches-five-year-deal-with-colts/

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 5, 2010 9:14 AM ET

The Indianapolis Colts will not be losing their defensive captain. And they also won't be signing any unrestricted free agents.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Colts and linebacker Gary Brackett have reached an agreement on a five-year deal. Brackett is a team captain and a good fit for the Colts on the field and in the locker room, and the Colts made clear that they wanted to keep him. That they've reached a deal is, for the Colts, good news.

But the bad news is that if the Colts had their eyes on any unrestricted free agents, they won't be able to sign them. As one of the final four teams (along with the Saints, Vikings and Jets), the Colts can only sign an unrestricted free agent after they lose one. And Brackett was the only unrestricted free agent they had a chance of losing; their other unrestricted free agent, kicker Matt Stover, is expected to retire.

The Colts, however, have long believed in building through the draft and keeping their home-grown players, rather than building through free agency. So their inability to sign a free agent isn't a big problem, and their ability to keep their defensive captain is a big relief.

Artis Hicks agrees to three-year deal with Redskins

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 6, 2010 7:27 PM ET

The Washington Redskins and free agent guard Artis Hicks have reached a contract agreement.

PFT's Mike Florio reports that the Redskins and Hicks, who played the last four years for the Vikings, have agreed on a three-year deal.

For the Vikings, it's the second straight day that they've lost an unrestricted free agent, following the departure of running back Chester Taylor on Friday. As one of the final four teams (along with the Saints, Colts and Jets), the Vikings can only sign as many unrestricted free agents as they lose, so Minnesota could now add two unrestricted free agents.

For the Redskins, the signing of Hicks is the latest reminder that -- contrary to the expectations of some -- they're not going hog wild spending Daniel Snyder's money on big-name free agents in an uncapped year. Coach Mike Shanahan would rather build for the long run by adding solid veterans like Hicks, rather than try to put together an all-star team of high-priced free agents.

I'm sure they are all furious....it will be interesting to see how many of them refuse to play for their one year tenders.

I bet a lot of them will holdout for a while, but they will fall in line eventually, as they don't have much of a choice.

That situation is certainly a bargaining chip in favor of the owners.

"That old **** had 4 sacks last year and got $26m over 4 years and a $10m guarantee alone in 2010"

I do feel sorry for someone like him who worked his balls off last year and is worth over double that tender per season.

Aaron Kampman, a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end, has signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent, the team announced Sunday.

The team did not disclose the length of the contract or financial terms.

Kampman played his first eight NFL seasons with the Green Bay Packers. He has 54 career sacks and recorded at least 9½ sacks per season over three of the past four seasons.

Chiefs trying to keep Chambers

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/07/chiefs-trying-to-keep-chambers/

Posted by Mike Florio on March 7, 2010 12:04 PM ET

Veteran wideout Chris Chambers was cut by the Chargers during the 2009 season. The Chiefs claimed him via waivers, and Chambers finished with a flourish, catching 36 passes for 608 yards in nine games.

Coincidentally (or not), he's now an unrestricted free agent.

A league source tells us that the Chiefs are negotiating with him about sticking around.

Though the Chiefs have been quiet this offseason, signing to date low-level talent (Tyler-Freaking-Palko), re-signing linebacker Mike Vrabel, and emerging from trade talks with the Cardinals without receiver Anquan Boldin, there's a growing feeling in league circles that the Chiefs could be a surprise team in 2010.

Indeed, the turnover rate for the postseason is roughly 50 percent. With Charlie Weis at offensive coordinator and Romeo Crennel at defensive coordinator, things could get interesting in the AFC West -- and the Chiefs could be one of the non-playoff teams from 2009 to crash the party in 2010.

Money I guess for Robinson. I would have liked to see Dansby on the roster, I like how he plays. Dunta also, but I think Atlanta would have outbid Denver.

Denver is counting on this draft and counting on the 2009 draft to build the roster along with the 2nd-tier FA's. If they fail then they'll go after the bigger money guys since they'll have a small payroll. It's a good strategy.

Carr's arrival doesn't bode well for Shaun Hill, who lost his starting job to Smith during last season. Hill is due $1.5 million in 2010, and is hardly a lock to keep his roster spot.

The chance to get back on the field was paramount in Carr's search. The 49ers are committed to Smith as a starter, but Carr knows better than anyone a number one overall pick at quarterback has to win eventually or lose his gig.

The Bills have jumped off the sidelines this offseason with an odd move.

The team signed tackle Cornell Green to a three-year, $9 million contract, according to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora. Last with the Raiders, Green turns 34 this offseason.

Buffalo needs warm bodies on the offensive line, but Green didn't seem like a player that was going to get much more than the veteran's minimum. Of course, he may have to start in Buffalo.

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 9, 2010 4:21 PM ET

Minnesota's "apparent" interest in LaDainian Tomlinson is very real; SI's Jim Trotter reports that Tomlinson will visit the Vikings Thursday.

The week since Tomlinson was released has probably been humbling for the former Chargers running back. He's had to wait in line while Chester Taylor got a big deal. Even Justin Fargas has received more interest.

Minnesota is a perfect fit worth waiting for. Tomlinson could chase his ring alongside another classy person at quarterback without taking a pounding.

Trotter writes that LT2 has no problem "sharing the backfield" but he wouldn't really be sharing in Minnesota. He would be a clear backup that can help on passing downs.

Just making the visit to Minnesota is a good sign that Tomlinson understands what his role would be.

The Titans have cautiously dipped their toe into the free agent pool, agreeing to terms on a three-year contract with linebacker Will Witherspoon.

Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean writes that the Titans will sign him, barring a "last-minute snag in negotiations." Assuming the contract is modest, we like the value for the Titans.

Witherspoon is still just 29 years old and has shown he's a league-average starter at worst. He should be coming at a discount rate and the Titans know how to coach up linebackers.

Posted by Michael David Smith on March 10, 2010 11:48 AM ET

The Washington Redskins have beefed up their new 3-4 defense with the signing of a beefy defensive lineman.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that former Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu signed a two-year, $7 million deal with the Redskins.

When Kemoeatu's visit with the Redskins was first reported, it didn't look like a signing was close because Kemoeatu isn't close to being completely recovered from the torn Achilles' tendon that cost him the entire 2009 season. But apparently the Redskins are satisfied that Kemoeatu is on the road to recovery.

The 31-year-old Kemoeatu played for the Ravens from 2002 to 2005 and the Panthers from 2006 to 2008. He is listed at 345 pounds but is likely bigger than that, and recent reports have suggested that his goal during rehab was to stay under 370.

Posted by Mike Florio on March 10, 2010 6:40 PM ET

Just when it appeared that the big money in free agency had dried up, the Houston Texans have coughed up an eight-figure contract to a veteran guard/center from the Chiefs.

Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com and John McClain of the Houston Chronicle report that the Texans have signed Wade Smith.

Per Marvez, it's a four-year, $12 million contract, with $6.25 million in guaranteed money.

"Wade really enjoyed his other visits to Arizona and Buffalo, but Houston was the first team we heard from after midnight Friday," Parker told Marvez. "He felt it was the right fit for him."

Smith played tackle, guard, and center in 2009 for the Chiefs, starting once at left tackle and nine times and right guard.

Free agent safety Brodney Pool is about to become a Jet.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the New York Jets reached an agreement on a one-year, $1.3 million deal with Pool on Thursday night.

Pool has played his entire five-year career in Cleveland but wasn't tendered by the Browns. That means the Jets won't have to send any compensation to the Browns, even though Pool was technically a restricted free agent.

Pool has suffered multiple concussions, and after his latest concussion cut short his 2009 season, there was talk that it could end his career. But Pool was given a clean bill of health in February.

In addition to the Jets, teams that showed an interest in Pool included the Rams and Buccaneers.

Shaun Hill has permission to seek a trade
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 12, 2010 10:01 AM ET

When the 49ers signed quarterback David Carr to serve as Alex Smith's backup, they made it clear that Shaun Hill is not in their plans.

So Hill is officially on the trading block, and Matt Maiocco of the Press Democrat reports that the 49ers have given Hill permission to seek a trade.

It's hard to see why any team would trade for Hill when it's obvious that he'll be available for nothing once the 49ers release him, but having permission to talk to other teams at least allows Hill to get an idea of what his options will be assuming he does, in fact, get cut.

And even if Hill isn't in the 49ers' plans, he ought to be able to catch on somewhere. The 49ers have gone 10-6 in games Hill has started, which is a lot better than they've been with Smith, and Hill's career passer rating of 87.3 is respectable.

So Hill could be of some value to a team seeking a backup quarterback. Even if he's not valuable enough for a team to trade a draft pick to get him.

The Washington Redskins are interested in acquiring defensive lineman Adam Carriker from the St. Louis Rams and have contacted the team about the possibility, league sources said Thursday.

New Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, who coached Carriker in St. Louis, is a strong proponent of the three-year NFL veteran and would like to add him as Washington transitions to a 3-4 scheme, according to team and league sources. The Redskins also graded Carriker highly coming out of Nebraska when Gregg Williams was running their defense.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story?id=09000d5d816e4d17&template=with-video-with-comments&confirm=true

I think Carriker is a better fit at DE in a 3-4 system then DT in a 4-3 system.

The Pats made no serious attempt to re-sign either player -- but they now need to take serious steps to upgrade, either via free agency or the draft.

Well, it's finally happened.

More than 10 days into the free agency period, one of the 200-plus players who would have been unrestricted free agents in a capped year has signed an offer sheet as a restricted free agent.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Eagles have agreed to terms with running back Mike Bell on a one-year deal worth $1.7 million. The offer includes $500,000 in guaranteed money.

The deal also includes incentives that could push the total value to over $2 million.

Because the Saints tendered Bell at the lowest level, they have only a right to match the offer -- and they'll get no compensation if they don't.

Either way, Bell will be under contract for one year. The question is whether it will be the Eagles or the Saints.

Eagles add Tapp to defensive line

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA -- Looking to bolster their pass rush, the Philadelphia Eagles acquired defensive end Darryl Tapp from Seattle on Tuesday.

The Seahawks got defensive end Chris Clemons and the Eagles' fourth-round choice in next month's draft.

Originally a second-round draft pick by Seattle in 2006, Tapp has 18 sacks, two interceptions, eight forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries in 65 games. He had four sacks in a game against St. Louis in 2007.

"Darryl is a very intense football player and we're happy to acquire him," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "He plays very hard every snap. He's smart, he's a good person and he'll fit very well into our defensive scheme."

Clemons played two seasons with Philadelphia after posting a career-high eight sacks in 2007, his only season with Oakland. He has 20 sacks in 59 career games.

The Eagles were interested in Tapp when he played at Virginia Tech. The Seahawks had re-signed him on Monday.

"Darryl is an up-and-coming player in this league, in my opinion," Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said. "He's a good player and a good person, and we liked him very much coming out of Virginia Tech. We believe he'll be a good addition to our defensive line.

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 16, 2010 7:30 PM ET

Just hours after Dwan Edwards said that free agency has been difficult, the defensive lineman has taken himself off the market.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Edwards agreed to an undisclosed contract with the Buffalo Bills. Edwards, who should mostly play defensive end in the team's new 3-4 defense, also visited the Broncos and Seahawks.

Edwards told the Baltimore Sun Tuesday that some teams had expressed reservations about the neck he surgically repaired in 2008. It's a high-risk, high-reward signing for Buffalo. (We had Edwards in our top ten free agents a few weeks back.)

The Bills also signed linebacker Andra Davis earlier Tuesday.

Posted by Mike Florio on March 17, 2010 5:20 PM ET

Last year at this time, unrestricted free agent cornerback Karl Paymah visited multiple teams in what we dubbed the "Paymah Rent" tour.

This year, the Vikings could have applied a restricted free agency tender to the five-year player, but they chose not to do so. He therefore became a restricted free agent with no restrictions.

The 49ers have announced that Paymah has joined the team, under a one-year deal.

Paymah appeared in 12 games with two starts in his only season with the Vikings.

Edwards failed physicals before Bills signed him

Defensive end visited the Broncos and Seahawks before signing a four-year contract with the Bills, but he never got a contract offer from them because of failed physicals.

PFT alum Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times has the news, which underscores what a risky signing it was for Buffalo. Baltimore also withdrew their offer to Edwards during the free agency process.

For the record, we think Edwards was a solid young player worth taking a risk on.  He was able to play 18 games last season despite not undergoing neck surgery that the Ravens wanted in 2008.  (He did undergo spinal fusion surgery.)

"I'm glad they took a chance on me," Edwards said about the Bills. "It motivates me, definitely, that teams dropped interest. I'm looking forward to getting back on the field with some of these teams."

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 19, 2010 6:55 PM ET

Well, here's something for Darnell Dockett to celebrate.

Free agent linebacker Joey Porter has agreed to a three-year contract with the Cardinals, according Darren Urban of the team's official website.

Porter wrapped up a visit with the Redskins Friday, but he wanted to play near the West Coast and Arizona had a bigger need for an outside pass rusher. Porter should start for the Cardinals.

It's questionable how much Porter has left in the tank, and the signing could backfire quickly. But the move is already popular in the locker room. Dockett said 12 days ago that Porter is all he wanted for Christmas and he's quickly chimed in on the move:

"BIIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRDGANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG!!Yeaaaaaaaa aaaahh ohhhh leeeeettttttssss DOOOO IT!," Dockett tweeted.

We think he likes it.

UPDATE: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cardinals will pay Porter $17.5 million over three years, with a max value of $24.5 million. Depending on the structure, that looks like a panicked deal that won't go well for Arizona.

Mike Bell is a Philadelphia Eagle

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/23/mike-bell-is-a-philadelphia-eagle/

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 23, 2010 10:00 PM ET

Mike Bell is headed to Philadelphia after the Saints chose not to match an offer sheet the restricted free agent signed with the Eagles, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The move is not a surprise; the Saints never appeared that interested in keeping him.

Bell came to New Orleans with his career on life support, but wound up leading the Super Bowl champions in carries during the regular season with 172. His role rapidly diminished in the playoffs, getting only two carries in the Saints' final two wins.

(The Saints' win helped save Bell from going down in infamy.)

The Eagles will pay Bell $1.7 million, assuming he makes the team. $500,000 is guaranteed, which was enough to scare the Saints off. In Bell and fullback Leonard Weaver, the Eagles have a pair of steady options for short-yardage situations.

The player rep for WR Josh Reed conceded that it's "highly unlikely" the free agent will sign with the Patriots.

It's just a poor fit. Reed works best out of the slot, where the Pats have Julian Edelman ready to step in until Wes Welker returns later in the year. Reed will try to land a job elsewhere as the primary slot receiver.


Seems like someone Denver should at least be considering. If Marshall is moved, Gaffney and Royal will be the starters. I personally don't have too much faith in Lloyd, despite his reasonable showings in the opportunities given last year. Reed is an excellent player, both on ST and in the offense. He showed something in Buffalo, a place that has been aenemic for quite some time. That's saying something.
