NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports four teams have shown "varying levels" of interest in free agent C Alex Mack.
RapSheet mentions the Ravens and Colts as two of the teams interested in the 28-year-old. They're waiting for the "frenzy to die down" before making a run at Mack, who was slapped with the transition tag by the Browns. Indianapolis needs a center after releasing Samson Satele, while Baltimore needs an upgrade on Gino Gradkowski. Mack is arguably the best center in the NFL.
Dolphins re-signed DT Randy Starks to a two-year, $12 million contract.
The Dolphins moved quickly on keeping Starks after losing Paul Soliai to the Falcons. A starter for the Dolphins since 2009, Starks remained both an effective run stopper and pass rusher last season. Although he's now 31, Starks has been highly durable. He hasn't missed a game since 2007.
Chargers signed TE David Johnson, formerly of the Steelers, to a two-year-contract.
Johnson, 26, has all of 22 catches for 216 yards and one touchdown across 52 career games. He'll compete for a roster spot as a blocking specialist.
The Bucs hosted free agent CB Charles Tillman on Wednesday.
The Buccaneers had a slew of visitors at One Buc Place on the second day of free agency, including Josh McCown whom they proceeded to hand a two-year, $10 million deal. Tillman reuniting with old coach Lovie Smith seems inevitable.
The Oakland Tribune reports the Raiders' preferred veteran QB addition is Matt Schaub.
Schaub has not yet been cut by the Texans, but it's expected to happen soon. Raiders beat writer Jerry McDonald's report suggests Oakland is higher on Schaub than free agent Josh Freeman, with whom OC Greg Olson worked in Tampa Bay. If McDonald's report is accurate, it's not a promising sign for Freeman.
Free agent Ted Ginn is visiting the Bucs.
As is ex-Pats special teamer Dane Fletcher. With the Bucs loading up on veteran talent, Ginn would be a deep threat as a No. 3/4 receiver. The Bucs have also been linked to Steve Smith.
The deal between free agent OLB O'Brien Schofield and the Giants is on hold due to medical concerns.
After putting Schofield through a physical, the Giants have questions about his knee. He tore his ACL at the Senior Bowl in 2010.
The Charlotte Observer reports Oakland and Tampa Bay will be potential landing spots if/when Steve Smith is released, in addition to Baltimore.
We'd have to imagine Baltimore would be Smith's preference, though joining a veteran-laden Bucs squad that gets two shots a year at Carolina would likely have some appeal. The Raiders have no veteran talent at receiver, but would almost certainly have to overpay to lure Smith west. It wouldn't be an ideal setup for either side.
