Ndamukong Suh visiting with Oakland Raiders

When Ndamukong Suh hit free agency before the 2015 season, there were several teams chasing the four-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle, with the Miami Dolphins essentially locking him up before the legal tampering period ended. Suh and Miami agreed to a six-year, $114-million contract. This year, with the Dolphins releasing Suh, the free agency period seems to be a little more deliberate for Suh. He has already visited with the New Orleans Saints, Los Angeles Rams, and Tennessee Titans. There is reportedly interest from the Seattle Seahawks to bring in the now five-time Pro Bowl defensive...

Report: NaVorro Bowman may be on Cowboys radar, but not a priority yet

Linebacker is a position of need, and the Cowboys have shown previous interest in NaVorro Bowman. For a guy who has a pretty big name and performed well in 2017, linebacker NaVorro Bowman isn’t receiving a lot of interest in free agency as of yet. It’s been reported that his last team, the Oakland Raiders, have a deal on the table to bring him back. It must be a low-ball offer since Bowman remains unsigned. Outside of that, his name isn’t showing up much in free agency rumors. Yesterday, we ran a poll looking at five free agents who could help the Cowboys. We wanted to know who you...
