Colts keep Pro Bowl center Saturday with three-year contract.

I guess this will put an end to the Saturday thread in the Steelers forum.

Wow. Canty got tagged by Dallas, so they owe some picks if they want him.

Bryant McFadden is getting some big offer from Detroit according to Peter King. Dominique Foxworth is getting attention from Baltimore.

Default NFC North Update

A look at what others are writing about in the NFC North.

Chicago Bears

-Chicago is happy to see Rex Grossman go, David Haugh of The Chicago Tribune writes.

-Barry Rozner of the Daily Herald is also happy to see Grossman go.

-Team president/CEO Ted Phillips is firmly behind Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith but the Chicago Tribune's Steve Rosenbloom isn't so sure the Bears are headed in the right direction.

Detroit Lions

-The Lions will likely target mid-level free agents and probably won't come away with a big name.

Green Bay Packers

-With $30 million in cap room, the Packers are looking for new deals, not new players.

-U.S. Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) questioned broadcast and cable television executives about the television rules that prevent some Wisconsinites from watching Wisconsin programming with satellite dishes.

Minnesota Vikings

-The Vikings probably won't repeat last offseason's shopping spree.

-The Star-Tribune examines the 2005 draft class and it isn't pretty.

-The possibility of no salary cap starting with the 2010 season could hurt Tarvaris Jackson and Cedric Griffin.

Default NFC West Potential Visits

Domonique Foxworth's expected deal with the Ravens would leave the Rams' Ron Bartell as one of the few higher-profile cornerbacks still available.

Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic has not confirmed the Cardinals' reported interest in cornerback Bryant McFadden.

Also from Somers: Kurt Warner did not sound particularly upset about his contract situation while discussing the matter on Dan Patrick's radio show. The fact that Warner isn't lining up visits suggests he's still hoping to get something done with Arizona.

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the Rams have interest in 49ers free-agent tight end Billy Bajema. The team has not scheduled a formal visit, but discussions are ongoing. The Rams also hope to speak with Titans receiver Brandon Jones, who will first visit the 49ers.

Clare Farnsworth of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer confirms the Seahawks' plans to meet with T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Chris Canty.

Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger says the Giants plan to visit with Seahawks free-agent defensive tackle Rocky Bernard. Garafolo: "Bernard has also proven himself to be durable, as he's missed only three regular-season games in the past four seasons. The Giants would surely love to add such a reliable presence to the rotation at tackle with Fred Robbins and Barry Cofield." Bernard has played through knee problems.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee says the 49ers are showing interest in Cowboys tight end Tony Curtis. Curtis could replace Bajema, who is drawing interest from the 49ers, Jets and Rams.

The Bucs are reportedly interested in making a trade for Raiders RB Michael Bush.
I know there are a lot of Bush fans here. Anyone who can get out of Oakland is a genius.

Default The top 50 players in free agency

Every pro personnel director in the NFL has a player board stacked by grade and position in order to react to player acquisition attempts when free agency starts.

Usually, they will place their own players on the board in the position they have them graded. It gives a good visual as to where a team stands, player by player, as it relates to the free agents available. This board will not include the restricted free agents and history says there is very little traffic in the restricted free agent business because most teams are not willing to give up the draft compensation to acquire a restricted free agent.

Here's a look at my top 50 players in free agency, along with the top five players at each position. Medical issues, age, and salary demands all come into play. And there will be constant flux on the talent board due to terminations, which will continue as the offseason progresses. There should be close to 400 NFL players hitting the free-agency market this week, and even after a number of early signings next week the number of free agents will stay constant as teams continue to release players as roster bonuses come due.

1. Albert Haynesworth, DT, Tennessee Titans (Signed)

2. T.J. Houshmandzadeh, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
