CSN Bay Are reports the Raiders "remain a major player" for free agent Rashad Jennings.
The free-agent running back market has been ice-cold to this point, which could make Jennings extremely affordable even after an impressive season in Oakland. The Raiders have a ton of money to spend and have previously stated their desire to re-sign Jennings. Even at 29, he still has plenty of tread on his tires.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the Vikings are "definitely" out of the running for free agent DE Michael Johnson.
GM Rick Spielman inked RE Everson Griffen to a five-year, $42.5 million deal over the weekend, and he'll slide in as the starter opposite LE Brian Robison. Johnson will still have a robust market without the Vikings' inclusion. After the Bears failed to sign DE Michael Bennett away from Seattle, they could turn to Johnson.
A "source close to the situation" informed the St. Paul Pioneer Press that it would be "shock(ing)" if free agent DE Jared Allen doesn't sign with the Broncos.
The Broncos always seemed like a logical landing spot for Allen, who has said he wants to go somewhere he has a chance to win and play meaningful snaps. With DEs Robert Ayers and Shaun Phillips free agents, there's an opening in Denver opposite Von Miller. Allen hasn't generated much buzz, yet.
The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins could be interested in free agent RG Davin Joseph.
Joseph was released by the Bucs over the weekend and has ties to new Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey. Miami needs help all over the offensive line. LT Branden Albert is set to sign with the Dolphins on Tuesday. He and C Mike Pouncey are the only locked in starters. Joseph will turn 30 during the season and may be damaged goods.
Steelers CB Ike Taylor has agreed to take a pay cut to remain with the team.
Taylor, 34 in May, was previously scheduled to earn a $7 million salary and count $11.94 million against the cap in the final year of his deal. It was a smart move on Taylor's part, as the cornerback market is already loaded with veteran castoffs. GM Kevin Colbert continues to stay loyal to his aging players and appears frightened to make a tough decision. Taylor isn't a top cover corner anymore.
ESPN Redskins blogger John Keim reports the team is interested in free agent Kenny Britt.
Washington is also interested in Bengals restricted free agent Andrew Hawkins and could also target Darren Sproles once/if he's let go by the Saints. Coming off three down seasons with the Titans, Britt shouldn't command more than a one-year deal. He's missed a total of 23 games the past four years. Britt is still just 25 but may be damaged goods. He's still worth a flier.
Giants RG Chris Snee agreed to a pay cut, lowering his salary from $7.2 million to $1.1 million.
Snee, 32, can earn another $1 million via incentives. The move was fully expected, as Snee was scheduled to count a whopping $11.75 million against the 2014 salary cap in the final year of his contract. He's an asset when healthy.
Cardinals re-signed K Jay Feely.
Feely broke the news on his Twitter account, but didn't provide terms. Feely's job was in danger after a rough Week 1 last season, but he rebounded to convert 30-of-36 field-goal attempts (83.3 percent). He was 3-of-5 on kicks of 50+ yards. For his career, Feely owns an 82.7 conversion rate.
