The Jets are still trying to work out a deal with free agent RT Austin Howard.
The Jets have inquired about free agent CB Captain Munnerlyn.
With Darrelle Revis in Tampa and Antonio Cromartie on the street, a position of strength has become a position of need for Rex Ryan. The Jets appear ready to open up their wallets, as they've also been linked to Alterraun Verner.
Vikings re-signed LB Larry Dean.
Dean avoids a restricted free agent tender by signing on the dotted line. The core special teamer had 13 tackles and two forced fumbles last season.
The Philadelphia Inquirer suggests the Eagles as a landing spot for free agent DL Mike Neal.
Coach Chip Kelly loves versatility in all his players and that's Neal's calling card. He played both outside linebacker and defensive end for the Packers, recording 9.5 sacks and six tackles for a loss over his last 27 games. He generated a team-high 37 hurries last season, also showing an ability to rush from the interior at 6'3/285.
The Redskins have expressed interest in free agent CB Corey Graham.
It doesn't look like the Ravens are going to be able to keep their valuable nickel corner from hitting the market Tuesday. Graham should be an affordable target for a Redskins team that is desperate to upgrade their pass defense by any means necessary. They had the league's No. 20 secondary last season and the No. 30 unit in 2012.
The player rep for free agent TE Andrew Quarless says he's had discussions with eight teams since Saturday.
As an all-around tight end with athletic upside, Quarless is a hot name. The Packers want him back and the Giants (with former Green Bay TE coach Ben McAdoo) are going after him as well. We don't know the other teams that have reached out to Quarless, but the Patriots, Bills, Lions, Falcons, Bucs and Jets are among the league's more tight-end needy teams.
Kenny Stills is expected to take on a bigger role in the wake of Lance Moore's release.
Stills already earned a surprisingly sizable role as a fifth-round rookie, playing on 708-of-1154 snaps (61.3 percent) and posting a 32-641-5 line. But he was just sixth on the team in targets with 51 (3.18 per game), a number that will naturally rise with Moore and Darren Sproles gone. Stills is a naturally exceptional playmaker capable of both deep routes and the quick-hitting routes Moore ran. His Dynasty arrow is pointing straight up.
Free agent QB Josh McCown said four teams have expressed real interest so far.
The four teams are believed to be the Jets, Bucs, Texans and Bears. McCown said that if he does leave Chicago, it will be to pursue a starting opportunity. The 34-year-old threw 13 touchdowns against one interception last season, going 3-2 as a starter thanks to the schemes and tutelage of Marc Trestman. McCown is a strong candidate to get overpaid this week and flee Chicago.
