Darren Sproles "wants to get released."
The Raiders are hosting free agent Andre Brown on Wednesday.
Nevermind a porous defense. Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie is going all-in on injury-plagued running backs in decline, first re-signing Darren McFadden and now targeting Brown to ostensibly form a "one-two punch" of sub-4.0 YPC backs. Brown, 27, has not drawn interest elsewhere during the free agency period.
Sources tell the Baltimore Sun that Steve Smith would have the Ravens near the top if his list if he gets cut by the Panthers.
Panthers re-signed CB James Dockery.
Dockery was a restricted free agent. It's unclear if he signed for the "low" amount of $1.431 million, or something less. A reserve, injuries limited Dockery to five games last season. Dockery has made 24 career appearances, but just two starts.
Zach Miller is owed a $1 million roster bonus next Thursday.
The Seahawks were expected to ask Miller to take a pay cut on the $5.8 million he's owed in 2014 between salary and bonuses. If Jermichael Finley's medicals check out, that might not even be an option anymore. The Seahawks also have two talented youngsters in Like Willson and Anthony McCoy.
Seahawks released DE Chris Clemons.
The move frees up more than $7 million in cap space. Clemons made a successful 2013 return from his 2012 ACL tear, recording 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble across 14 games (11 starts). He "started" over both Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, who will now be leaned upon for more snaps. Clemons is entering his age-33 season, but could still help a team in a pass-rusher rotation. He'll inevitably be linked to ex-Seattle DC Gus Bradley in Jacksonville.
Free agent CB Terrell Thomas will visit the Raiders on Wednesday.
Thomas missed all of 2011-12 after suffering back-to-back ACL tears, but appeared in all 16 games last season. He played 588 snaps, notching one pick. Now 29 with an ominous injury history, Thomas shouldn't command much in the way of guaranteed money. He's the kind of veteran spare part Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie has grown obsessed with.
Free agent T Bruce Campbell is visiting the Redskins Wednesday.
Campbell has a local tie as he played his college ball at the University of Maryland. The former fourth-round pick of the Raiders has never started a game in his four-year career.
