Is anyone else interested in antoine cason? He is young, can be good and probably will be cheap.
I know he isn't an eye opener but he could make sense
David Garrard - QB - Free Agent The Jets worked out free agent QB David Garrard on Thursday.
Garrard, 35, was is Dolphins camp last year before a knee scope led to his release. At one point, though, he was believed to be the front-runner for the starting job. Garrard hasn't appeared in an NFL game since 2010, when he started 14 games for Jacksonville and threw for 2,734 yards, 23 TDs, and 15 INTs. New York would be one of his better opportunities for a starting job. Related: Jets

Ricky Jean-Francois - DL - 49ers CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco says there has been "no movement" in contract talks between the 49ers and free agent DL Ricky Jean-Francois.
Jean-Francois, 26, has been one of the hotter names on the free-agent market so far. His ability to play every position on the defensive line makes him a fit with any team. The 6-foot-3, 295-pound lineman has been linked to the Packers, Eagles, and Ravens.

Ramses Barden - WR - Giants Free agent WR Ramses Barden said "it's probably best" if he plays elsewhere in 2013.
The Giants have some interest in re-signing Barden, but both sides agreed that he'll test the open market. Barden's size -- 6-foot-6, 224 pounds -- will pique teams' interest, but he's yet to produce in his four years in the league.

Chris Houston - DB - Lions The Detroit Free Press says re-signing free agent CB Chris Houston is a priority for the Lions.
The Lions haven't made their plans publicly known, but GM Martin Mayhew said he considers nine of the team's own free agents priorities. Cornerback is a glaring weak spot on Detroit's roster, and although Houston has been burned on occasion, he's easily their top cover man. The Lions will likely get to him after talking with fellow free agent Cliff Avril.

Chris Gamble - DB - Panthers The Charlotte Observer's Joe Person says "all indications I've received are" that the Panthers will release CB Chris Gamble. (Would jump on this guy if we couldn't score anyone else in FA or draft)
"They've kind of cut bait. I've not heard any talk about anything other than a straight cut," said Person. Gamble, 30 next Month, will not be offered a pay cut, and his current cap number sits at $10.95 million, third-highest on the team. He's likely to enter a deep free-agent corner market, so Gamble could be a bargain for some team.

Cullen Jenkins - DL - Free Agent Free agent DL Cullen Jenkins will visit the Giants this week.
It's Jenkins' first known visit since being released by the Eagles on Monday. The interior of New York's defensive line is filled with a few unknowns in Shaun Rogers, Markus Kuhn, and Marvin Austin next to starter Linval Joseph. Jenkins still has some pass rush skill as a 32-year-old, and he can sign immediately. Related: Giants

The Union-Tribune San Diego believes that impending free agent CB Antoine Cason will get at least $5 million annually in free agency, and "probably more."
While we are talking about close ties to players, DC9 and I were talking about E.J. Biggers out of Tampa Bay... He'd be an upgrade and starter. Played very well in place of Talib and earned high praise from his old coach Raheem.

Redskins | Kory Lichtensteiger would like to return
Thu, 28 Feb 2013 13:19:06 -0800
Washington Redskins impending free-agent OG Kory Lichtensteiger would like to return to the team, but with 19 expiring contracts, and needs elsewhere on the roster, it may be tough for the team to bring him back.

ESPN - Dan Graziano - Redskins Offensive Line Thoughts
#Redskins could be forced to release LB-London Fletcher without salary cap relief from the NFL.

Over weekend I reported 2013 cap would rise - at least $122.5M and as high as $123M. It is $123M, up about $1.5M, significant for many teams

adbrandt: RT @mortreport: Teams get more money to spend - salary cap for 2013 is $123.9 million per team after accounting of league revenues.
So ... that's $3 million more than they had initially projected. Does this mean the Redskins are just $1 million over? If we don't get our cap back, this certainly helps. We could get to about $12-15 million under fairly easily ... this helps.

So let's say the Redskins are $1 million over ...
The team really wants to fix the secondary. Restructure Hall to get him down to $5 million (saves the team $4 million). Release Adam Carriker ($4 million). Restructure Santana Moss (saves $3 million). London Fletcher retires (saves $4 million) ... still think this is most likely ... he'll take a cushy job on the Skins coaching staff. You restructure a couple contracts (smartly ... not like Dallas where you're looking at millions in dead money down the road). Trent Williams $2.8 million) and Barry Cofield ($2.3 million) saves you another $5 million. You want to lock up Josh Wilson, so you extend him and drop his '13 figure by $1.5 million. Same with Orakpo ... extend him and save $1 million.
Those are not drastic moves. Those moves free up $22.5 million ... and with the new cap we are $1 million over ... so that would get us to $21.5 million UNDER the cap ... WITHOUT the cap penalty reversal. Think about that ...

Then, if the Skins can finally get their $18 million back ... holy mackerel ... we could potentially get to $40 million under! Of course, if we get that money back we won't release Carriker and probably don't force restructures of Cofield and Trent (even though those would be smart to do) ... still would get us to $30 million under.
There's a difference between restructuring smart ... and being stupid. Dallas is being stupid ... where do you think that $18 million in cap space they just freed up went? It went into the final years of those contracts as guarantees. I have a feeling that Jason Witten may not be the most desirable $8 million player in 4 years, but Dallas will be stuck with him. Demarcus Ware may be worth $13 million a year, but in his 33 year old season do you think the team will want to commit that much to him? Doubtful, but they won't even be able to restructure.
Trent Williams would be a smart restructure because he's young and a stud LT. You aren't strapping yourself into a player that could be falling out of his prime by the end of the deal. Same situation with Cofield ... while you don't want to extend him too long ... you know he'll be around for the remainder of the deal, so you might as well guarantee that money to him.
Trent seems to be a prime candidate for a restructure. He seems to have the skill to be a cornerstone for the franchise and all indications are he's cleaned it up off the field. Trent counts 8 million towards the cap this year.
I dunno how legit this site is or if it's been posted yet bc I couldn't find it, but it's pretty interesting and the restructures listed seem logical.
You have to be careful doing too many of those. Some are okay, and he does a good job indicating how it would impact next year's cap ... but you can't go crazy restructure like the Cowboys. Dallas was also $18 million over ... we are looking at being just $1 million over. We could do 2-3 restructures + release a couple guys and be in good shape.
