Thats right people, its that time!!!! Thiis is an idea that came to me earlier in the day and I posted it on the all nighter thread. This is going to be a thread for news about Free Agent signi

I know its been posted in other thread(s) but... Jets | Team close to sending Vilma to New Orleans? Thu, 28 Feb 2008 20:07:58 -0800 Tom Rock, of Newsday, reports the New York Jets are close

PATS: NO DEAL W/ MOSS As free agency began Friday at 12:00 AM ET, the Patriots had no deal in place with Randy Moss, according to ESPN's John Clayton. The 6'4 wideout with 4.3 speed and a 40''

MOORE TO HIT OPEN MARKET

The Patriots declined to extend NT Rashad Moore a qualifying offer, making him an unrestricted free agent.

The 324-pound journeyman saw action in only one contest last season.

FAINE TO TAMPA

That $44 million in cap space has burned a hole in the pockets of the Buccaneers.

Stephen Holder of the St. Petersburg Times reports that the Bucs have reached an agreement with free-agent center Jeff Faine, previously of the Saints.

Per Holder, the deal makes Faine the highest-paid center in the game.

Wilson to Oakland

Someone familiar with the situation tells Newsday that free agent S Gibril Wilson is expected to sign a deal with the Raiders.

The deal would be for $6-6.5 million a year, more than he was initially thought to be seeking. It looks like Oakland will keep Michael Huff at strong safety in 2008, rather than move him to his more natural spot on the weak side.

Anybody know much about the 4 year vet? I just read that the Chargers released him. Since his rookie year out of Ohio State he was their starting RT . Not an easy feat for a 7th round pick. Apparently he was beaten out for the starting role in the last 2 regular season games by Jeromy Clary. According to ESPN Olivea signed a 6 year $20 deal at the end of the 2006 season. Wondering if he might be worth a look by us for our RT spot. He's 6'4', 312 lbs. Thoughts?

WILLIAMS TO RESTRUCTURE W/ BROWNS

Upon acquiring DE Corey Williams from the Packers, FOXSports' Jay Glazer reports the Browns will sign him to a "lucrative, long-term deal."

Williams should be on the phone thanking Al Davis for setting the market outrageously high with the deal he gave Tommy Kelly. Unlike Kelly, Williams is coming off a healthy season. He's also been much more productive.

SAINTS SNAG VILMA

Tom Rock of Newsday reports that the Jets have struck a deal with the Saints for linebacker Jonathan Vilma.

Vilma will go to New Orleans, apparently for a conditional pick in the 2009 draft.

The conditional nature of the selection suggests that there are lingering concerns about Vilma's knee.

-Profootballtalk

WTF?? 2009? This , if true, just ruined part of my day. How many tackles is that draft choice gonna make this year? :roll:

Kris Jenkins, DT of NYJ? (UPDATED) — Hutch has noted that sources close to the Jenkins deal have said that “It’s a strong possibility that something will get done (with Jenkins).” We’ll keep our eye out.

Adam Schefter has reported that the Jets want Kris Jenkins. we ask if this is just a ploy to sweeten the deal with Detroit? We like Jenkins better than Rogers as a “total package.” According to Cimini, he thinks that Jenkins could command a third rounder from the Jets...

-TheJetsBlog

From the article:

"Also, the Jets were close to finalizing a trade for Panthers Pro Bowl defensive tackle Kris Jenkins (6-4, 350 pounds). But with Vilma gone, it's unclear what the Panthers want in return from the Jets. Nose tackle Dewayne Robertson or draft picks are possibilities. "

Dolphins agreed to terms with G Justin Smiley on a five-year contract worth $25 million, including a $9 million signing bonus.

The Bengals, Raiders, and Rams were also thought to have interest. Smiley is recovering from a torn labrum, but should be O.K. by training camp. The 2004 second-round pick will play right guard in Miami, replacing Rex Hadnot.

CRAP ! I was hoping that Bama boy Smiley might be on our list if Faneca wasn't signed. He's younger and cheaper.
