Contract talks between the Ravens and free agent FB Vonta Leach have continued into the weekend.

Leach was initially expected to sign with a team on Friday. The Baltimore Sun confirms the Ravens "remain the frontrunner" to re-sign Leach, but the sides are still haggling over contract details. The Dolphins never evened offered Leach a deal. The Giants were offering Leach the veteran minimum base salary.

Jets released C Nick Mangold.

It's another cap saving move from GM Mike Maccagnan. There were rumblings Mangold could take a pay cut but his release was expected. The Jets have cleared $23.6 million with Mangold, Ryan Clady ($10 million) and RT Breno Giacomini ($4.5 million) gone. There should be a strong market for Mangold despite coming off injury in his age-33 season. Wesley Johnson is Mangold's in-house replacement.

ESPN's John Keim reports it is "likely" the Redskins pursue impending free agent DE Calais Campbell.

The match makes sense. Campbell is one of the most impactful defensive lineman available while Washington needs to add playmakers to their front seven. There will be plenty of other teams interested if Campbell hits the open market, however, and Keim questions whether the Redskins are willing to get involved in a bidding war for a 30-year-old. Campbell has also been linked with the Broncos, and it will not be surprising if he ends up re-signing with the Cardinals.

ESPN's Tim McManus speculates Jamaal Charles could be an option for the Eagles if he is released.

Charles is set to count almost $6.2 million against the salary cap, and the Chiefs can save all of that by releasing him. Considering he is coming off two lost seasons due to knee issues, it is almost a given Kansas City will move on. If they do, the Eagles make a lot of sense. Coach Doug Pederson was his coordinator in Kansas City, and they need backfield help even if they do not cut Ryan Mathews. Signing Charles will be a gamble, but it could prove a smart, low-cost move for an Eagles' organization pinching pennies as they attempt to surround Carson Wentz with weapons.

ESPN's Rich Cimini would "be surprised" if Jay Cutler ended up with the Jets.

Cutler to the Jets seems to be the rumor du jour, but Cimini has consistently shot those rumors down. Still, the dots are easy to connect with Cutler's former position coach and former teammates in New York, and the Jets are likely looking for a veteran bridge of Cutler's ilk to get them to their future quarterback. The noise is unlikely to die until the Jets add someone else or Cutler signs with a different team.

Ravens assistant GM Eric DeCosta said the Ravens are looking to add a possession receiver.

"I think we're looking for a guy that can catch the ball, move the chains and get critical first downs when needed," DeCosta said. Brandon Marshall would seem to fit that description, and The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec has already written the Ravens "would at least inquire" if the Jets release him. Baltimore also has a long history of signing veteran receivers at the tail end of their careers, and Marshall would not count towards the compensatory pick formula if he is released. It all makes too much sense to actually happen.

49ers signed DT Earl Mitchell to a four-year, $16 million contract.

He'll get $5.5 million in year one. Mitchell drew a surprising amount of interest for a nearing-30 defensive tackle who hasn't recorded a sack in two years, and hasn't earned a positive run-defense grade from Pro Football Focus in a half decade. A 6-foot-2, 296-pound undersized nose tackle, Mitchell's on-field play has been nondescript at best. He has also missed 11 games the past two seasons due to injury. The 49ers need to keep searching for good football players. They have very few of them right now.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci passes along "a lot of buzz" that the 49ers could draft Alabama ILB Reuben Foster with the No. 2 overall pick.

Carucci is one of the NFL's most well-connected beat writers, having worked for multiple teams and as a reporter for NFL.com. Even if he gets past San Francisco at No. 2, Carucci fully expects Foster to be drafted in the single digits. After watching Foster's college tape, ESPN's Louis Riddick described him as "everything I want in a run-and-hit linebacker," and "vicious" on the field. Foster, however, is presently recovering from rotator cuff surgery.

The Buffalo News' Vic Carucci considers DT Kyle Williams' roster spot "extremely vulnerable."

Especially if the Bills keep Tyrod Taylor, they will have to make some cap-saving moves. Turning 34 in June, Williams carries an $8.3 million cap number and would save the Bills $6.8 million if released. Williams would make a lot of sense in Philadelphia as a replacement for impending free agent NT Bennie Logan. Williams had a monster year under Eagles DC Jim Schwartz with Buffalo in 2014, dominating as both an interior pass rusher and run defender.

Coach Mike Mularkey said the Titans' starting running back job will not be opened to competition for 2017.

"DeMarco Murray is the guy," Mularkey stated. "He has shown he is the guy and he will continue to be that guy." Derrick Henry averaged 4.45 yards per carry, scored five touchdowns, and caught 13-of-15 targets in a promising rookie year, but he will open 2017 as a complementary, game-plan-specific back. "Derrick, as you saw, some games he was more involved than others," Mularkey explained. "And a lot is based on how we are going to attack the opponent."

Rob Gronkowski (back) said he will "for sure" be ready to play Week 1.

"Uh, yes," Gronkowski said when asked if he'll be ready to go for the season opener. "No doubt." Gronkowski is coming off his third known back surgery after he required 2009 and 2013 operations to repair herniated disks. As for his playing future, Gronk said he's not yet even thinking about retirement. Still just 28 (in May), Gronkowski's body has been through a lot in such a short period of time, but he keeps coming back better than ever. He averaged a monstrous 21.6 yards per catch on 25 grabs in 2016. Gronkowski is still the TE1 in fantasy.

Chiefs signed RB C.J. Spiller.

Spiller has name recognition, but he hasn't been a factor on the field for years. He was a massive free-agent flop in New Orleans in 2015 and bounced around between the Saints, Jets, and Seahawks last season before eventually being released in December. Spiller will turn 30 before the season. He'll try to carve out a pass-catching role in K.C., but we won't hold our breath.
