Update 17: getting slower as the day progresses…players and agents in flight to new destinations. Rep0rt out now that Brandon Gibson has signed with the Patriots on a one year deal.

UPDATE 16: Frank Gore stood up the Eagles and now is an Indianapolis Colt. The Colts are also looking hard at DT Terrance Knighton and that looks to be a go. Colts going to be stout. Colts also leading in the pursuit of WR Andre Johnson.

Carolina Panthers cut DeAngelo Williams.

UPDATE 15: The Dolphins today have restructured Brandon Fields, cut Shelley Smith, cut Phillip Wheeler, re-signed Michael Thomas and Kelvin Sheppard and tendered Derrick Shelby. No news on Suh. The Dolphins are currently around 6 million in cap space but if Clay is lost to Bills they get that 7 million back from the tag. Releasing Starks could take the team to around 18 mill in space without Suh contract.


UPDATE 13: Jeremy Maclin signs with K.C. for 11 million a year. Revis is drawing interest from the Bills. Harvin drawing interest from the Patriots. UPDATE 12: NY Jets release Percy Harvin officially. UPDATE 11: Miami Dolphins release guard Shelley Smith – HUGE holes at both guard positions right now. Phins save 2.75 million

UPDATE 10: It is being reported that Charles Clay is on his way to visit the Bills. Any contract offered or agreed upon will then have a 7 day window for the Dolphins to match. If they are smart they would seek other TE help and leave the Bills hanging.

UPDATE 9: Shane Vereen is now a member of the NY Giants. New England could lose a lot of players this off-season. Trent Cole signs 2 year deal with Colts.

UPDATE 8: Former Bills Da’Norris Searcy signing with the Titans. Hot rumors that Darrell Revis is returning go the Jets.

UPDATE 7: Chargers have agreed to a deal with former Bronco lineman Orlando Franklin

UPDATE 6: Julius Thomas the former Bronco TE will get $46 million and over $20 million guaranteed from the Jacksonville Jaguars who are looking to make big moves in free agency.

UPDATE 5: Mike Iupati has agreed to a contract with the Cardinals. Jake Locker has announced he is retiring from the NFL. Torrey Smith is now a 49er.

UPDATE 4: The Dolphins have restructured the contract of Brandon Fields. Jared Odrick accepts deal with Jaguars for $8.5 million a season. $22 million guaranteed.

UPDATE 3: Jets are expected to sign Buster Skrine, CB of the Cleveland Browns. Seattle will lose LB Malcolm Smith to the Raiders.

UPDATE 2: The Miami Dolphins are reportedly ready to release DT Randy Starks following the signing (officially) of Suh. The Dolphins will keep Earl Mitchell.

UPDATE 1: Seattle has traded with New Orleans for TE Jimmy Graham rumored to be for a 1st round pick and Max Unger. The Saints will also send a 4th round pick. Broncos have signed TE Owen Daniels Baltimore Ravens trade Haloti Ngata

To kick things off the Philadelphia Eagles are very busy as they have announced a trade of Nick Foles to St. Louis ( right player wrong team) for QB Sam Bradford.

It is a HUGE move by the very busy Philadelphia Eagles who have already traded for a LB Kiko Alonso and traded away LeSean McCoy. Philly trading for Bradford lowers the price #Browns will have to pay if they are indeed interested in trading up for Mariota. #Nice — Stephen Thomas (@15Stephen15) March 10, 2015
