Cardinals release Darnell Dockett, should 49ers take a look?

The Arizona Cardinals cleared significant cap room on Friday, as they released defensive lineman Darnell Dockett. Should the 49ers give him a call? The NFL's defensive line market is growing and growing, and a notable name has been added to the list. The Arizona Cardinals just announced that they have released defensive tackle Darnell Dockett. The move is kind of surprising, but not entirely shocking. The team has been trying to re-do his deal in recent days. Dockett is due a $6.55 million base salary in 2015, with a cap hit of $9.8 million. Coming off a knee injury that cost him all last...

Notable 2015 NFL roster cuts

Friday was a tough day for a bevy of NFL veterans as several clubs trimmed their rosters to free up salary-cap space before the start of free agency in March. Longtime standouts such as Arizona’s Darnell Dockett, Washington’s Barry Cofield and Atlanta’s Justin Blalock were given their walking papers on Friday, joining former top-10 draft […]

Browns agree to three-year contract with veteran quarterback Josh McCown

The Browns and veteran quarterback Josh McCown have agreed to terms on a three-year contract, a league source confirmed Friday for the Beacon Journal. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because the Browns had not announced the deal. Financial terms were not immediately disclosed. McCown, 35, chose the Browns after his agent spent the past couple of days negotiating with them and the Buffalo Bills. He visited the Browns on Tuesday and Wednesday and previously met with the Bills, Chicago Bears and New York Jets. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released McCown on Feb. 11 after he threw 11...

As Junior Galette's giant bonus looms, New Orleans Saints face tough decisions

Galette's fully guaranteed roster bonus takes effect March 12. If the Saints can't void the guarantee, they'll likely convert the roster bonus to a signing bonus, alleviating what would be a brutal salary cap hit in 2015.

Dallas Cowboys Free Agency Focus 2015: Stephen Paea Could Be Perfect Fit In Big D

Despite the emergence of Tyrone Crawford and building block of DeMarcus Lawrence, the Cowboys will open this offseason looking for any type of upgrade they can bring to the defensive line. Free agency is a mere eleven days away, but that doesn't stop us from bringing up the names that could be beneficial if the Cowboys were to look for some veterans. Being a second-round selection from Rod Marinelli's former Bears' defense, Stephen Paea may be on the radar. The Chicago Bears could be in for a makeover on defense now that John Fox will be bringing in his regime. Paea grew up on the island...

New York Giants Potential Free-Agent Target: Running Back Reggie Bush

The Giants have no one like him. Does running back Reggie Bush have enough gas left in his tank to help the New York Giants make a push to the playoffs in 2015, a place they haven't been since winning the 2011 Super Bowl? Bush, released by the Detroit Lions earlier this week, turns 30 in just a few days. In running back years, 30, of course, is considered ancient. Bush is coming off the least productive season of his career -- discounting 2010, when he played in only eight games. Bush totaled only 550 yards from scrimmage, roughly one-third of the 1,512 yards he totaled for Detroit in...
