Lions re-signed RB Joique Bell to a two-year, $7 million contract.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports free agent DE Tyson Jackson is drawing an "impressive amount of interest," with the Dolphins, Browns and Falcons among his potential suitors.
Per Rapsheet, the Chiefs also remain in play. The 2009 first-rounder had a career year under Andy Reid and DC Bob Sutton last season, logging 34 tackles and four sacks across 509 snaps while faring well against the run.
The Giants are expected to re-sign free agent K Josh Brown Tuesday.
Brown went a shiny 23-of-26 on field goals last season, including one bomb from 52 yards out and a 7-of-8 mark from 40-49 yards away. He was only an unreliable fantasy option because those 26 attempts ranked 26th in the league.
The Giants reportedly view free agent Kevin Boothe as a potential short-term answer at center.
The Giants made David Baas a cap casualty on Monday, opening a hole at the pivot. Boothe kicked over from left guard and manned that spot for the final six games of last season, struggling badly in both run and pass blocking. Jerry Reese needs to land a quality guard like Geoff Schwartz if they're going to go with a liability like Boothe in the middle.
NFL.com's Albert Breer confirms the Colts have "been in talks" to re-sign free agent Ahmad Bradshaw.
The Colts definitely need to supplement their backfield, but re-upping with Bradshaw instead of tapping the open market would be a risky proposition. Bradshaw has chronic neck and foot conditions, and isn't getting any healthier going on 28 years of age. It would have to be a bargain-basement deal with no guaranteed money.
Free agent G Travelle Wharton is considering retirement.
Wharton, 33 in May, is coming off an outstanding season that saw him start 12 games at left guard and be an asset as both a pass protector and run blocker. He's currently our No. 2 available free-agent guard, behind Geoff Schwartz and ahead of Willie Colon and Jon Asamoah. The Panthers would like Wharton back.
Panthers G/C Geoff Hangartner has retired from the NFL after eight seasons.
Hangartner, 32 next month, appeared in eight games, making two starts, for the Panthers last season after signing off the street in November. He played in 118 games total, starting 85 of them, in six seasons with Carolina and two with Buffalo. Hangartner was set to become a free agent at 4 PM ET.
ESPN's Ed Werder reports DeMarcus Ware has requested the Cowboys to decide his future by Tuesday's 4PM ET start of free agency.
It's a complicated situation, as the Cowboys would create $7.432 million in immediate cap space by cutting Ware now, but also $8.571 million in 2014 dead money. That number would fall to $3.25 million if Ware was designated as a post-June 1 cut, but Ware's full salary would remain on the books until June 1, creating no immediate cap room. The Cowboys need all the immediate room they can get, and seemingly want to take as long as possible to make a decision.
