Dolphins signed C J.D. Walton, formerly of the Giants.
Walton started all 16 games last season, but was among the game's worst centers. He'll back up Mike Pouncey in Miami. Walton turns 28 next week.
Free agent DE George Selvie will visit the Giants on Thursday.
Selvie's market is heating up as teams prepare to shop for bargains. He's also drawn interest from the Bucs and Vikings. Selvie had three sacks last season.
Jets signed G/T James Brewer, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract.
The former fourth-round pick never amounted to anything with the Giants, making just eight starts when several players in front of him got hurt. He'll compete for a job as a versatile reserve for Gang Green.
Free agent DT Kenrick Ellis is visiting the Giants on Tuesday.
A 2011 fourth-rounder, Ellis played 158 snaps on defense last season, mostly manning the nose. Ellis has made only five career starts, zero of which came in 2014.
The Giants remain in talks with free agent S Stevie Brown.
After missing out on Ron Parker in free agency, the Giants will turn their attention back to re-signing Brown. Cooper Taylor and Nat Berhe are currently the Giants' only safeties under contract. Brown struggled in his return from ACL surgery last season, but was one of the Giants' best defensive backs prior to going down.
Free agent S Darian Stewart will visit the Falcons after he's done visiting Denver.
Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News says the Giants are also interested, though no visit has been scheduled. Stewart played all 16 games for Baltimore last season, the first time he's done that in his career. The Falcons are looking to replace Dwight Lowery at free safety.
Bears agreed to terms with FS Antrel Rolle on a three-year, $11.25 million contract, including $5 million guaranteed.
Rolle has a big name, but his play has slipped steadily in recent seasons. He had a miserable year in run defense in 2014 and was barely average in coverage. Rolle does bring leadership ability to a Chicago locker room that desperately needs it, and plays a needy position on the Bears, who still must find a bookend for Rolle at safety. Rolle also offers sporadic playmaking ability, having picked off nine passes, broken up 21, and forced two fumbles over the past two seasons.
Eagles agreed to terms with CB Walter Thurmond III, formerly of the Giants, on a one-year contract.
The deal should be for very little money. 27-year-old Thurmond's NFL career has been ravaged by injuries, including last year's season-ending pectoral tear. Thurmond also has an extensive history of knee and leg problems. When healthy, the Oregon alum has flashed playmaking ability at slot corner.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Giants are "expected to sign" free agent RB Shane Vereen.
The G-Men have really been the only team connected to Vereen in recent days. They want a pass-catching back to complement bruiser Andre Williams and do-it-all RB Rashad Jennings. It's not an ideal landing spot for Vereen's fantasy owners, as there are going to be so many mouths to feed in this offense.
A source tells the New York Daily News the Giants are "very serious" about trying to sign free agent RB Shane Vereen.
The source added it's at least possible Vereen will sign with the Giants on Tuesday afternoon. He'd add diversity to a backfield that currently consists of bruiser Andre Williams and aging Rashad Jennings. The Patriots could then compensate by going after Roy Helu as their new passing back. Vereen is said to be seeking $3.5 million per year. He turned 26 years old last week.
The Giants have reportedly shown significant interest in free agent RB Shane Vereen.
The Giants are in need of a passing back to complement bruisers Andre Williams and Rashad Jennings. Vereen certainly fits that bill and is only expected to command $3.5M in average annual salary. The Jets are also reportedly interested in the ex-Patriot.
Free agent DE Brandon Graham is reportedly seeking a four-year deal worth $30 million, with $20 million guaranteed.
This is a max price and not necessarily what Graham will get paid. The New York Daily News confirms the Giants are in prime contention for Graham, while the Dolphins and Titans are also pursuing him. The Fins are a tough sell because they are already so deep on the defensive line. The Titans would be an un-ideal fit, as they run a 3-4 and Graham is best suited for a 4-3.
CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher disputes a report that the Eagles are still in the running to sign free agent Brandon Graham.
Specifically, Mosher says to "beware" reports the Eagles are still in play. It sounds like they're going to let Graham walk after being unable to find consistent snaps for him in their 3-4 scheme. The Giants seem like the heavy favorites to land Graham. He'd be a terrific bookend for Jason Pierre-Paul.
NBC Washington reports free agent DE Brandon Graham has narrowed his choices to the Eagles and Giants.
The Titans are going to whiff. Graham would return as a rotational player in Philadelphia. He could push for full-time snaps with the Giants. Philly may be able to offer Graham the most money. Turning 27 in April, Graham should probably follow the dollar signs. He'll be signing away his prime years.
Sources tell CSN Philadelphia the Giants may make free agent DE Brandon Graham "an offer he can't refuse."
Graham is quietly one of the best free agents left on the market, so it's not a surprise he's conjuring Michael Corleone references. He'd be a perfect fit as a natural 4-3 end bookending Jason Pierre-Paul in New York. The Dolphins and Titans are also hot on the trail of Graham.
The Giants are reportedly interested in free agent DE Brandon Graham.
Best suited to a 4-3 defense, Graham would be an excellent fit in New York, rushing off the edge opposite Jason Pierre-Paul. He'd be a significant upgrade on outgoing Mathias Kiwanuka. Graham's market has been quiet for most of the weekend, which perhaps suggests he's going to come at a bargain price.
NJ.com reports the Giants are interested in free agent RBs Roy Helu and Antone Smith.
The Giants want a playmaking change-of-pace back they can add to their current corps of Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams. Helu would definitely fit the bill, but could be loath to join a three-man backfield after spending so many years as a backup in Washington. The price would have to be right.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler hears the Cowboys, Falcons, Seahawks, Vikings, and Giants have all shown preliminary interest in free agent DE Adrian Clayborn.
Clayborn missed almost all of 2014 with a torn biceps tendon, but doesn't turn 27 until July and could at very least help a team as a rotational end. A medical concern, Clayborn also missed most of 2012 with an ACL tear.
ESPN New York expects the Giants to make a run at free agent FS Devin McCourty.
This confirms an NBC Washington report linking the Giants to McCourty. The Giants have a void at safety with Antrel Rolle, Stevie Brown and Quintin Demps all free agents. McCourty, 28, has drawn interest from multiple teams, with Washington and the Eagles also potential landing spots. He's expected to command $8 million-plus annually.
ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano hears New York is not interested in free agent RT Joe Barksdale.
Barksdale would make sense for the Giants as they look to transition current RT Justin Pugh to guard, but his asking price may be too high. Barksdale is reportedly looking for a contract in excess of $6 million annually. He is Rotoworld's No. 4 available free-agent tackle.
