Free agent Josh McCown will visit the Bucs, Texans and Jets.
McCown will visit the Bucs first. All three clubs are quarterback-needy, but the Bucs and Bears are believed to be the favorites for McCown's services. Quite often in free agency, players never leave their first visit.
Falcons released FS Thomas DeCoud.
DeCoud's $4.2 million would have become guaranteed on March 15, and releasing him now saves the Falcons $3 million against the cap. After making the Pro Bowl in 2012, DeCoud was routinely burned on the back end last season. We don't expect him to have a strong market. DeCoud turns 29 in eight days.
Bills re-signed TE Mike Caussin.
Caussin spent 2013 on injured reserve with a hip injury after missing 2012 with a torn ACL. He'll be hard pressed to crack the 53-man roster.
Redskins re-signed WR Santana Moss to a one-year contract.
No terms are available yet, but it's going to be a minimum kind of deal. Moss will turn 35 in June and is coming off a poor 42-452-2 campaign. Andre Roberts has reportedly agreed to a deal to be the Redskins slot receiver, which would make Moss the No. 4 or 5 wideout.
CSN Bay Area reports free agent Darren McFadden is expected to sign a one-year offer with the Raiders.
So much for McFadden generating "significant interest." If DMC is indeed returning, it could mean the Raiders are moving on from Rashad Jennings. It's odd because most reports had the Raiders more interested in keeping Jennings than McFadden. Both sides seemed like they needed a change of scenery in 2013, but Oakland is apparently loath to move on from McFadden's upside.
Cowboys released DE/OLB DeMarcus Ware.
It's the end of an era that saw Ware make seven Pro Bowl teams and be named an All-Pro four times. The Cowboys really had no other choice. Ware was unwilling to take a pay cut, and Dallas had less than $1 million in cap space. Ware, 32 in July, battled injuries in 2013 but still should attract plenty of suitors on the open market. The move clears a shade over $7.4 million in cap space, while the Cowboys will eat over $8.5 million in "dead money." Ware has 117 career sacks.
Free agent RT Austin Howard will hit the open market.
The Jets were unable to lock up their 32-game starter over the last two seasons. Howard will attract plenty of interest as a 27-year-old strong run blocker that gave up just two sacks a year ago.
Bucs re-signed exclusive rights free agent WR Eric Page to a one-year contract.
Page was active for every game last season, bringing back 23 punts for 251 yards and 22 kickoffs for 548 yards. He caught just four passes for 68 yards.
