New Giants OL Geoff Schwartz expects to start at left guard.
Schwartz can play both guard spots and right tackle, and reports have been all over the place on which position he's expected to play for his new team. That will be settled on the practice field this summer. The Giants have more moves to make on the offensive line. Wherever Schwartz plays, he'll be an asset.
Browns released QB Jason Campbell.
Campbell was owed a $250,000 roster bonus on Thursday, but was never expected to be retained. He joins former teammate Brandon Weeden on the unemployment line. The moves are a clear sign the Browns are targeting a quarterback in the first round of May's draft, though for now Brian Hoyer sits alone atop the depth chart. Campbell and his long release were surprisingly effective at times in 2013, but were heavily managed and manipulated by OC Norv Turner. Nevertheless, he vaults to the near the top of a pitiful quarterback market.
Coach Gus Bradley said he newly signed Toby Gerhart could regularly see 15-20 touches per game.
This is exactly what we expected after the Jags handed Gerhart a three-deal worth $10.5 million and $4.5 million guaranteed. Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson will have to battle for supporting roles. Gerhart will likely end up as a RB2 in fantasy circles thanks to 300-plus touches, but he won't have much week-to-week upside as a grinding runner playing in a low-scoring offense.
Free agent DL Ziggy Hood is visiting the Jaguars.
Hood, the 32nd pick in the 2009 draft, has pretty much been a bust to this point. He wouldn't be anything more than a rotational interior lineman in Jacksonville, but landing with a coach like Gus Bradley could help turn his career around.
Free agent Emmanuel Sanders is visiting the Jaguars on Wednesday.
Sanders has been connected to multiple teams, but this is his first known visit. Sanders caught a career high 67 passes for 740 yards in 2013, but wouldn't match those numbers in Jacksonville if Justin Blackmon (suspension) is cleared for Week 1.
ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys are interested in free agent DT Tony McDaniel.
McDaniel is currently in contract negotiations with the Seahawks, so Jerry Jones may not get a chance to sign the 29-year-old. McDaniel proved to be a top-of-the-line interior run defender in Seattle last season. Dallas needs interior linemen.
Ravens re-signed WR/KR Jacoby Jones to a four-year, $14 million contract.
The deal includes $4.5 million guaranteed. Jones was visiting the Giants on Wednesday, but received an offer he couldn't refuse. The dancin' return man remains a one-dimensional, streak-route specialist as a receiver, but is a dynamic special teamer. He can be useful on offense, but played far too many snaps in 2013. He's best suited as a situational/No. 4 type.
Patriots released NT Isaac Sopoaga.
The move creates $2.5 million in cap space, and $3.5 million in real savings. Sopoaga was just one year into a three-year deal, though he signed the pact with the Eagles, not the Patriots. He was acquired by the Pats last October. He struggled to plug the run as injuries battered the Patriots' defensive line. An 11-year veteran, Sopoaga turns 33 in September.
