Free agent Donald Penn is on his way to meet with the Raiders Thursday night.
Free agent Julian Edelman will visit the 49ers on Friday.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the 49ers are also interested in Hakeem Nicks. The Niners have slow-played the market, but are one of the more receiver-needy teams in the league. Edelman would represent a true slot threat that hasn't really been present during the Jim Harbaugh era. Provided the money is right, it would be a good signing for a team in the toughest division in football.
The 49ers are reportedly interested in free agent Hakeem Nicks.
Fellow free agent Julian Edelman is taking an official visit to San Francisco, while ESPN's Adam Schefter says the Niners are merely "interested" in Nicks. Either way, it appears they're serious about upgrading a receiving corps that currently features Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Quinton Patton as their top-three. It doesn't seem like an ideal landing spot for Nicks to rehab his depressed value as the Niners are a run-first team with two clear-cut starters.
The New York Daily News reports the Jets have "strong interest" in free agent Emmanuel Sanders.
This isn't exactly "new" news. The Jets' interest in Sanders has been known for the better part of a month. He was initially expected to visit Gang Green Friday, but a scheduling conflict put that on hold. Sanders is going to Kansas City Friday. The Jets are looking for another receiver after landing Eric Decker Wednesday.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks are interested in re-signing free agent Sidney Rice.
Rice could take Golden Tate's old spot on the perimeter of Seattle's offense. Rice was released by the Seahawks in a needed cap maneuver, but the club still believes he can help their passing game. When healthy, Rice remains an effective winner of jump-balls and can score touchdowns. He's also only 27.
Free agent Emmanuel Sanders will visit the Chiefs on Friday.
Sanders is making the rounds; he's already talked to the Jaguars and Bucs and has also drawn a bit of interest from the Jets. In Kansas City, Sanders could make Donnie Avery expendable or even replace Dexter McCluster in the slot.
As day three of NFL free agency nears a close, Henry Melton is Rotoworld's top-rated defensive tackle left unsigned.
Melton is currently in Minneapolis visiting the Vikings. There is a healthy amount of defensive line talent still available, including Julius Peppers, Jared Allen, Antonio Smith, Corey Wootton, B.J. Raji, and Alex Carrington. For a comprehensive list of all the free agents left on the board, click the link below.
Free agent Ben Tate is in Cleveland on Thursday for his Browns visit.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports Tate's visit, originally scheduled for Wednesday, was delayed by weather. There's still a chance Tate signs on his first visit. Tate is our top free agent running back still available, followed by Andre Brown, Knowshon Moreno, Maurice Jones-Drew, James Starks, LeGarrette Blount, and Anthony Dixon. It's not a good year to be a free agent back.
