Titans cornerback Kareem Jackson was No. 6 on Bill Barnwell's list of the 25 least valuable players in the NFL.
SI.com's Kerry J. Byrne makes the case for the Texans going after Oakland cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.
Jeff Saturday joined the contingent of player representatives and owners meeting at a Manhattan law firm to try to overcome the remaining obstacles to ending the fourth-month-long lockout.
With Donald Brown being the only Colts running back under contract, 2011 fourth-round draft pick Delonte Carter could have a significant role early in his career. "I just want to take my role and expand it by any means possible," Carter told Pro Football Weekly.
Coach Jack Del Rio acknowledged during a recent interview with WFXJ-AM that the lockout has compromised Blaine Gabbert's chances of competing for the starting job. Sportsradiointerviews.com has the full transcript of the interview.
Linebacker Justin Durant could be a target of the Detroit Lions once free agency begins.
Derrick Harvey and David Jones also made Barnwell's list of the 25 least valuable players in the NFL.
Rookie safety Chris Prosinski has spent the offseason in his hometown of Buffalo, Wyo., working out as often as possible and trying to "keep as much structure as I can on a day-to-day basis," according to Pro Football Weekly.
With Kerry Collins out of the picture, the Titans will look to add a veteran quarterback. Coach Mike Munchak: "We’re not looking for a guy that’s not capable of starting and winning games for us. We need someone that can come in here and win, and then have a nice competition between him and Jake Locker and Rusty [Smith]."
Munchak said Collins was undervalued as a player. “He was great to have around, not just for young quarterbacks, but for all of us on the offensive side. People never realized the value of someone like him on your roster," Munchak said.
