    Some notable Free Agent Signings:

    Bucs - CB Brent Grimes

    Saints - MLB Larry Foote

    Falcons - LOLB Daryl Smith - Local Product LOLB Daryl Smith has returned home, he also attended Georgia Tech. "This is a dream come true", said Daryl, "my heart has always been in Georgia"


    Falcons - RT Kareem Mckenzie - It is rumored that the Falcons are taking offers for their Pro Bowl RT Tyson Clabo and looking to move him within the week. The Falcons could have signed his replacement, or perhaps just depth and they can target a Tackle in the draft. The Atlanta Falcons currently hold the 30 th pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

    Raiders also made some noise in Free Agency:

    WR Titus Young will be in a three way battle for the #2 spot but will probably end up in the slot.
    With no LG on the roster we signed 8 yr pro Richie Incognito to fill that hole and we also landed RT Eric Winston to strengthen the right side.

    On defense 27 year old DT Alan Branch was signed and will hopefully fill some gaps in the middle.
    We also welcomed back CB Stanford Routt to the roster. At the moment he's at the number one spot, but with the third pick in the draft CB will definitely be a priority. Without a second rounder rumor is the third pick could be shopped around though.
    And the BIG signing was playmaking FS Jarius Byrd who will be looked upon to wreak havoc in the secondary this season.

    With $50M + in cap space we had the luxury to go after a lot of top tier free agents and quite honestly unexpectedly signed most of them. We now anxiously await tomorrow nights rookie draft.

    Browns Free Agency News
    The Cleveland Browns new front office had what they consider to be a very successful start to their tenure in Cleveland, as they worked quickly to sign multiple free agents in their attempt to revive this once proud franchise.​
    OFFENSE:
    QB - Matt Schaub - 5 yrs / $47.5M ($10M guaranteed)
    It was quite a surprise to see a franchise quarterback hit the open market, and the Browns wasted no time bringing him to Berea for a visit. Once he got here, Schaub didn't leave the team headquarters before he signed on the be the Browns new starting QB.​
    WR - Darrius Heyward-Bey - 6yrs / $72.6M ($12M guaranteed)
    DHB was perhaps the most coveted player on the free agent market. He and his agent did their due diligence; also paying visits to Indianapolis, Buffalo, Green Bay, and Cincinnati. Rumor has it that the Browns offer wasn't the highest contract offer he received, but the fact that he chose to come play on the shores of Lake Erie will make him an even bigger fan favorite with the Browns faithful as he should immediately step in as the Browns #1 receiver.​
    FB - Corey McIntyre - 4yrs / $6M
    G - Ramon Foster - 4yrs / $14M ($800k guaranteed)
    Both McIntyre and Foster figure to be starters in 2013 and will help to clear the way for Trent Richardson and the newly acquired Jahvid Best out of the backfield.​
    DEFENSE:
    DE - Thaddeus Gibson - 4yrs / $6M ($800k guaranteed)
    MLB - Jay Dwyer - 2yrs / $2.4M
    OLB - Thomas Howard - 5yrs / $32.5M ($5M guaranteed)
    OLB - Geno Hayes - 4yrs / $20.4M ($2M guaranteed)
    These four immediately solidify the Browns front 7 on defense. Gibson is expected to start opposite Jabaal Sheard, while Howard and Hayes should be plugged into the top of the depth chart at both OLB positions respectively.​
    CB - Chris Gamble - 6yrs / $75.6M ($12M guaranteed)
    The Browns made it know to Gamble that he was their top defensive priority right from the onset of free agency and their offer reflected that. Despite interest from Jacksonville, Cincinnati, and Indianpolis, the Browns once again got their guy. With Gamble starting opposite Joe Haden, the Browns starting CB duo has to at least be mentioned in the conversation for the best duo in the league.​
    SPECIAL TEAMS:
    K - Justin Tucker - 4yrs / $8M
    The Browns said goodbye to longtime kicker Phil Dawson this offseason, but in adding Tucker, the Browns now have one of the most promising young kickers in the league.​
