ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Browns are hosting Ben Tate for a free agent visit.
Peyton Hillis' contract with the Giants only contains $100,000 in guaranteed money.
The Dolphins are finalizing a deal to re-sign free agent DT Randy Starks.
CBS' Jason La Canfora previously reported the deal will be worth around $6 million annually. Expect a formal announcement by Wednesday afternoon. Re-signing Starks was a priority for the Dolphins, especially after they lost Paul Soliai to the Falcons.
Bills signed G Chris Williams to a four-year, $13.5 million contract with $5.5 million guaranteed.
The move is a head scratcher after Williams graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 74 guard among 81 qualifiers in 2013, and finished 76th in pass blocking. The Rams wanted him back, but certainly not at this price. Buffalo ostensibly plans to pencil in Williams at left guard, which was a gaping hole following Andy Levitre's 2013 departure. Williams turns 29 before next season.
NFL Network's Mike Silver names the Giants, Jets, Texans, Raiders, and Lions as possible landing spots for free agent Brandon Pettigrew.
Early-offseason chatter had the Lions potentially franchise tagging Pettigrew, the idea of which now looks foolish. He's been connected to a bevvy of teams but almost certainly not getting the financial offers he's seeking. Pettigrew is 29 years old with shaky hands and no dynamic elements to his receiving game.
The Patriots are hosting free agent DE/OLB Matt Shaughnessy on a visit Wednesday.
Shaughnessy took a one-year "prove it" deal in free agency a year ago and it paid off. He made the transition to 3-4 outside linebacker and recorded 36 tackles, three sacks, three fumble recoveries and seven pass breakups. Shaughnessy would add to an already solid defensive end corps in the Patriots' 4-3, giving Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovich some rotational breaks.
Jaguars signed OLB Dekoda Watson, formerly of the Buccaneers.
Watson, 26, has mostly been a special teamer in his career, but flashed potential in spot starts at strong-side linebacker down the stretch in Tampa last year. He was active against the run and is athletic enough to hold his own in coverage. Expect Watson to push hard for SLB Geno Hayes' starting job.
The 49ers are showing interest in free agent CB Chris Cook.
On Tuesday, the Niners cut Carlos Rogers and allowed free agent Tarell Brown to hit the open market. That leaves Eric Wright, Tramaine Brock and Chris Culliver as their top-three corners. Cook fits the mold as a physical, press player that goes 6'2/212. The Niners have also been linked to Nolan Carroll.
