Coach Dan Quinn confirmed the Falcons want to re-sign free agent LB Sean Weatherspoon.

"Definitely someone that we're talking to," Quinn said. "Just from watching our style of defense, it's fast and physical. And that's what Sean is. We're certainly hoping that he can be a big part of it moving forward." Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said earlier this month that the team plans to bring back Weatherspoon. Eight months removed from Achilles surgery, Weatherspoon should be open to returning on a team-friendly deal.

Free agent RB Shane Vereen denied a report that he's seeking $5 million annually.

Rotoworld's No. 7 available running back, Vereen was never a realistic candidate to get $5 million on the open market. He should draw interest from multiple teams, but isn't going to break the bank. Vereen will likely settle for a deal in the range of three years and $10.5 million.

The Packers are expected to re-sign free agent NT B.J. Raji.

Raji missed the entire season due to biceps surgery, but the Packers want him back on another one-year deal. It could be a sign that Green Bay will let Letroy Guion test the open market. Raji is expected to be ready for training camp.

Browns signed QB Josh McCown to a three-year contract.

McCown was reportedly in talks with Buffalo before signing in Cleveland. He'll give the Browns a veteran to compete with Johnny Manziel, but isn't a lock to open the season as the starter. McCown went 1-10 for the Bucs last year while posting an 11:14 TD-to-INT ratio. He has experience with OC John DeFilippo during their time in Oakland. The Browns are moving on from Brian Hoyer for 35-year-old McCown. Cleveland remains without a long-term answer at quarterback.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer confirms the Browns are "still in the running" for free agent Josh McCown.

McCown left his visit with the Browns without a contract, but is reportedly in talks with Cleveland and Buffalo. He's also drawn interest from the Bears and Jets, and it's possible a third team could emerge. Signing McCown would allow Cleveland to move on from Brian Hoyer.

Falcons waived DE Jonathan Massaquoi.

It saves Atlanta just $660,000. A 2012 fifth-round pick, Massaquoi made seven starts and had six sacks over the last two seasons as a situational pass rusher. The Falcons also cut ties with WR Harry Douglas and LG Justin Blalock, creating $11.7 million in salary-cap space.

CSN Bay Area expects the Raiders to release DE/OLB LaMarr Woodley.

Signed to a $12 million deal last March, Woodley was limited to six games before suffering a season-ending biceps injury. He was playing at a backup-caliber level prior to going down, and won't be back at his $3.85 million salary. The Raiders can save $5.19M by releasing Woodley.

Profootballtalk reports the Cardinals released DE Darnell Dockett because the sides couldn't agree on his market value.

The Cardinals attempted to extend Dockett after he refused to take a pay cut, but were unwilling to meet his asking price. Dockett will only return to Arizona if he can't get a better deal on the open market. The Cardinals are a projected $17 million under the 2015 salary cap.

Free agent Reggie Wayne recently underwent triceps surgery and is mulling whether to play or retire.

36 years old and having lost his effectiveness, Wayne would command no more than minimum-salary offers if he did decide to play one more season. He tore his ACL in 2013 and his triceps in 2014. The Colts would be better off moving forward with Donte Moncrief as the "X" receiver to T.Y. Hilton's Z.

Lions re-signed LS Don Muhlbach to a one-year contract.

33-year-old Muhlbach has been the Lions' deep snapper since 2004.
Feb 27 - 4:03 PM

Cardinals released DE Darnell Dockett.

Dockett was not amenable to a pay cut after missing all of 2014 with a torn ACL. He recently tweeted his displeasure with renegotiation talks. Dockett turns 34 in May and has lost most of his early-career pass-rush ability, though he remained a strong run defender the last time he played. Cutting Dockett frees up $6.8 million in salary cap space. GM Steve Keim said in a statement Friday that the Cardinals want Dockett back at a cheaper price.

NBC Washington's Dianna Marie Russini reports the Redskins have "strong interest" in free agent OG Mike Iupati.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden has been transitioning away from smaller, athletic zone linemen to large power blockers for the last year and a half. Iupati is a 6-foot-5, 330-pound road grader whom new Redskins GM Scot McCloughan drafted in San Francisco. Iupati would be a natural fit in D.C. Per Russini, the Redskins can expect competition for Iupati's services from the Buccaneers.

Dolphins released WR Brandon Gibson.

This was an easy one to see coming. An average talent who ruptured his patellar tendon in 2013, Gibson never got back on track last season, operating as Miami's No. 4 receiver. He was owed nearly $3.5 million in salary and bonuses. Gibson can't win consistently on the outside and has lost quickness since his knee injury, hurting his ability to produce in the slot. He'll search for backup opportunities.

The Arizona Republic's Kent Somers expects the Cardinals to have interest if Adrian Peterson becomes available.

The Vikings want to keep Peterson, but probably not at his $12.75 million salary. Peterson may balk at accepting a pay cut from a team he feels left him under the bus during his 2014 fight against the NFL. With their quarterback aging and coming off his second career ACL tear, the Cardinals have a major need for a workhorse runner. Somers also believes the organization is still "haunted" to some extent by drafting OT Levi Brown over Peterson in 2007.
Feb 27 - 3:35 PM

Ravens re-signed DL Christo Bilukidi to a two-year contract.

Ravens management must like what it's seen from Bilukidi on the practice field, because he's failed to earn significant playing time since his 2012 rookie year in Oakland. The 25-year-old will vie for a roster spot in camp.
