RTC: Several players stay put
By Paul Kuharsky
Reading the coverage…
John McClain of the Houston Chronicle runs through Mario Williams’ plans and the early developments in free agency for the Texans.
Love doesn’t hold teams together, says Jerome Solomon of the Chronicle. Nice detail here on Williams spending part of Sunday at GM Rick Smith’s house playing video games with Smith’s son.
Four reasons the Texans may have cut Eric Winston, from Lance Zierlein of the Chronicle blog. He should have kept it to three, as No. 4 is not a factor.
The Colts lost Pierre Garcon but managed to re-sign Reggie Wayne, says Phil Richards of the Indianapolis Star.
Five reasons the Colts re-signed Reggie Wayne, from Nate Dunlevy at ColtsAuthority.com. I like No. 5 especially.
Garcon is part of the Redskins' receiver-heavy free-agent push, says Mike Jones and Mark Maske of the Washington Post.
Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union talked to Dwight Lowery after he signed a four-year deal to stay with the Jaguars.
Defensive end Jeremy Mincey also re-signed, says Ganguli.
Dallas receiver Laurent Robinson is visiting the Jaguars, says Ganguli. The receiver pool shrunk significantly and if Robinson is the "big" move for Jacksonville, then they're going to have to really emphasize wideouts in the draft.
Chad Henne could be the new backup to Blaine Gabbert, says Vito Stellino of the T-U.
The Titans-Peyton Manning meeting is today. John Glennon of The Tennessean runs through that and the first day of free agency.
Safety Jordan Babineaux and reserve linebacker and special teamer Patrick Bailey re-signed, says Glennon.
The Titans talked for some time about their defensive needs. But their initial push in free agency is all offense, says Glennon.
Cortland Finnegan landed a big deal in St. Louis, says Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
