The Cowboys and LB Will Herring have called off their deal, sending Herring back to free agency.
According to reporter Todd Archer, Herring didn't fail a physical. Herring is back to looking for work as a special teamer.
Free agent Emmanuel Sanders will visit the 49ers on Saturday.
It will be Sanders' fourth visit. He's currently in Kansas City, and previously left Jacksonville and Tampa Bay without a deal. Sanders has also been linked to the Jets. Slow-playing the receiver market, the 49ers have now been linked to Sanders, Julian Edelman and Hakeem Nicks. They're waiting for a bargain to fall into their laps.
Free agent OG Daryn Colledge left his Rams visit without a contract, and will now visit the Raiders.
Colledge is best suited for a reserve role at this point in his career, but would certainly be in the mix to start in Oakland. The Raiders had some of the league's worst guard play last season.
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.
