Free agent OG Daryn Colledge left his Rams visit without a contract, and will now visit the Raiders.
Vikings re-signed WR Jerome Simpson.
He's a player the Vikings just can't quit. Simpson is presumably back on another one-year deal. Simpson returns as the Vikings' No. 3 wideout, and should primarily run opposite Cordarrelle Patterson on the outside, allowing Greg Jennings to operate out of the slot. Yardage-wise, Simpson is coming off a career year, but will remain no more than a WR4/5 for fantasy purposes in 2014.
Free agent RT Zach Strief is expected to re-sign with the Saints.
Strief passed on visiting the Dolphins, and NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports there's "mutual interest" in a new deal in New Orleans. Miami would have been his first visit. He'll likely re-up with the Saints some time in the next 24 hours.
Free agent DT Letroy Guion recently visited the Patriots and is scheduled to visit the Packers on Sunday.
Per the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Ravens are also interested in Guion. The 26-year-old was released by the Vikings last week in a salary-shedding move. Guion started 13 games for the Vikings last season but wasn't very effective.
Steelers signed NT Cam Thomas, formerly of the Chargers, to a two-year contract.
It was Thomas' only visit of free agency. He appeared in all 16 games in 2013, starting ten, and made 23 tackles. Thomas is best against the run but isn't a game changer and doesn't generate much pressure as a pass rusher. His addition could force NT Steve McLendon to one of the end spots, replacing departed Ziggy Hood.
"Multiple sources" tell ESPN Dallas the Cowboys have interest in free agent Julius Peppers.
It's the first we've heard of Peppers since his Tuesday release. Reporter Todd Archer's report has no mention of a potential visit. Peppers would be reuniting with former Bears DC Rod Marinelli in Dallas, whom he played for from 2010-12 in Chicago. The fact that the Cowboys are interested means they believe Peppers could be signed for (far) less than the three-year, $30 million deal DeMarcus Ware landed in Denver. Peppers certainly isn't going to match Ware, but he's not going to be a bargain, either.
Eagles signed RB Darren Sproles to a two-year contract extension through 2016.
Sproles, 31 in June, was already under contract for $3.5 million for 2014, the final year of his deal. It's possible GM Howie Roseman is extending Sproles to knock the cap hit down a bit, but we doubt it since the Eagles are already in terrific cap shape. The deal locks Sproles in as LeSean McCoy's No. 2 and could make Bryce Brown expendable. Coach Chip Kelly doesn't seem to be a fan of Brown's. The Eagles might be able to get a late-round pick for him.
Free agent RT Zach Strief has declined to visit the Dolphins.
According to the Miami Herald, there was "no explanation given." He reportedly expects to re-sign with the Saints. He's Rotoworld's No. 3 remaining tackle.
