Lawrence Jackson - DL - Lions
Free agent DE Lawrence Jackson hasn't "had a whole lot of dialogue" with the Lions as the signing period approaches.
Jackson wants to return as Kyle Vanden Bosch's replacement, but it's unclear whether the feeling is mutual. Jackson, who turns 28 before the season, had 2.5 sacks in 2012. He's at least reasonable about his market value: "I know I won't command some of the big contracts that some of the defensive ends are getting."

Carson Palmer - QB - Raiders
NFL.com says the "more likely scenario" is that Carson Palmer refuses a pay cut and joins a weak free-agent quarterback market.
Palmer is due a $13 million salary in 2013, but there's just no way the cap-strapped Raiders are going to keep him around at that price. Ian Rapoport says not to be shocked if Oakland cuts him, and Palmer lands a gig to compete with a "young up-and-comer" somewhere else. The Raiders would save just under $6 million in cap space by releasing Palmer.

Derek Cox - DB - Jaguars
The Washington Examiner's John Keim passes along free agent CB Derek Cox as a "name to keep an eye on" for the Redskins this weekend.
Cox played college ball at William & Mary in Virginia, and the Redskins will have a cornerback need whether or not they release DeAngelo Hall. (We suspect they will.) Cox is young (26) and an effective enough cover corner to command a multi-year deal. Hall would have to be cut for the Skins to afford Cox.
