The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts and free agent CB Vontae Davis aren't close to a deal.
Arizona RB Ka'Deem Carey managed forty times of 4.68 and 4.69 at the Wildcats' Pro Day.
He had a 35-inch vertical and 9-foot-8 broad jump. Carey ran 4.7-flat at the Combine. It's been a disappointing pre-draft process for Carey, who simply does not have blazing long speed. He's shaping up as a third-day prospect.
The New York Daily News reports the Jets are in "serious negotiations" with free agent TE Jeff Cumberland.
The Jets love Cumberland and reportedly expect him to make a big jump in his development next season. It's unclear whether a deal will get hammered out before free agency opens Tuesday afternoon, but the sides have been talking for a few weeks. Cumberland would ideally be a No. 2 catch-first tight end.
Ohio State LB Ryan Shazier clocked sub-4.4 forty times at the Buckeyes' Pro Day.
This is in addition to Shazier's highly explosive 42-inch vertical and 10-foot-10 broad jump at the Combine. Shazier is a tick over 6-foot-1 and 237 pounds with striking and coverage skills. He's a likely top-40 draft pick.
Profootballtalk.com's Mike Florio reported Friday that there could be a "bidding war" between the 49ers and Seahawks for free agent DE Michael Bennett.
Florio posted this on Twitter, then conceded on PFT's website that the Niners may be "feigning interest" in order to drive up Bennett's price tag for their division rivals. Bennett would be a bit of an odd fit in San Francisco's 3-4 scheme because he isn't a five-technique end, or a 3-4 rush 'backer. And the 49ers are strong at both of those positions. In addition to Seattle and apparently San Fran, the Bears, Jaguars, and Raiders are expected to pursue Bennett.
Saints released WR Lance Moore.
The Saints tried to trade Moore, but nobody was willing to take on his $3.6 million. New Orleans saves over $2.531 million against the cap with the move but eats over $2.537 million in dead money. Moore was the longest-tenured Saint prior to his release. At 31 (in August) and a product of Drew Brees and Sean Payton, we don't anticipate a hot market. Moore could make some sense reuniting with ex-Saints assistant Joe Lombardi, the new OC in Detroit.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent DE Michael Johnson will be a "top target" for the Vikings.
The Johnson-Vikings connection isn't a new one, but this is the first time we've really seen it in writing that the Vikings will actually pursue the pass rusher. At this stage of their respective careers, Johnson would qualify as a monster upgrade on free agent RE Jared Allen. Johnson is going to have plenty of suitors. With Greg Hardy off the market, Johnson's our top available 4-3 end.
Dolphins tendered offers to exclusive rights free agents WR Armon Binns and LB Jonathan Freeny.
Binns tore his ACL and MCL at the beginning of training camp last summer and spent the year on I.R. Freeny played 26 snaps on defense but amassed ten tackles on special teams.
