I wouldn't be surprised if Pittsburgh signed an OLB and RB. Not sure who the OLB would be, but DeAngelo Williams wouldn't be a bad addition for 100-150 snaps.

Texans top priority is to re-sign Ryan Mallett.

Finding a middle linebacker that can cover would help too.

I like him but would prefer someone with less of an injury history. 

Steven Jackson interests me for the right price. 


That said I think they will sign a RB for sure.

Chiefs need a wide receiver and an inside linebacker to stop the run.  They are also going to need a center because Rodney Hudson is going to fetch too much on the open market and some team will over pay for him.

The Browns got Josh McCown. Nothing more is required.

Skins - :facepalm

Desperate needs are OL and safety but also need to add DL help anywhere they can find it (Jean-Francois is at least a decent start). They just dumped Cofield and Bowens' contracts so they have plenty of cap room to work with. I'd like to see them put most of their $$$ in FA towards safety and load up on OL/DL in the draft.

Raiders:

WR
DL
CB
RB

Much like the draft; these are the most important for the Raiders to address in FA.  What's done here can of course go a long way in determine if they stay @ #4 in the draft or move down.

Looks like Andre Johnson is done in Houston.

Add WR to the list of needs for the Texans.

Not really a fan of adding Jackson. He's pretty old and banged up isn't he?

Those the the concerns but I think anyone you get will come with some concerns. 

Williams is the same age as Jackson and has missed more games.  He does have 700 fewer carries so there is maybe less wear.  Williams averaged fewer yards per carry than Jackson last year and has throughout his career caught less passes.  Jackson has caught more balls almost every year and his worst year is close to Williams best year so he figures to be more help in the passing game.  So the comparison between the two probably favors Jackson.  The worries are Jackson's mileage vs William's durability.  In both cases you are taking a risk. 

Jackson is just a bigger back and to my mind more reliable. Either way you are hoping it isn't for much next year. 

Other ideas would be some of the injured guys coming back in Ridley, Bradshaw, or Moreno.  Or go with an unknown you can pluck from the pile.

I hope Maclin runs good 10 yard outs  :lol

the frenzy before the frenzy:

Suh - to the Fins (didn't see this coming. they now have a monster front 4)
Cobb - stays w/GB (why leave?)
Maclin - to the Chiefs (maybe he should disguise himself as a rb; no wr's caught a td last year...sad)
Maxwell - to the Iggles
Hudson - to muh Raiders (finally some good news)
