Default Free agency off to quick start

Adam Schefter's "Around the League" reports and commentaries can be seen regularly on NFL Total Access.

(March 11, 2006) -- Free agency has opened with a flurry. Already, numerous teams are on the board. Take a glance at the deals, and the potential soon-to-be deals.

This list will be constantly updated throughout the day, so refresh this page often!

Cleveland reached agreement with former Seattle wide receiver Joe Jurevicius on a four-year deal worth about $10 million.

Former Minnesota safety Corey Chavous reached agreement with the St. Louis Rams on a five-year deal.

Former Seattle safety Marquand Manuel reached an agreement with Green Bay on a five-year, $10 million deal that includes a $2 million signing bonus.

Denver has reached an agreement to re-sign defensive tackle Gerard Warren to a six-year contract.

Former New Orleans center LeCharles Bentley agreed to terms with Cleveland -- 6 years, $36 million, with a $12 million signing bonus. The deal makes him the highest-paid center in NFL history.

Former Washington tight end Robert Royal has reached an agreement with Buffalo on a five-year, $10 million deal that includes a $2.5 million signing bonus.

Washington and San Francisco are nearing a deal that would send a 2006 third-round pick and a 2007 fourth-round selection to the 49ers for wide receiver Brandon Lloyd. Pending a physical, the deal should be completed before the end of the weekend.

Former Baltimore defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu reached an agreement with Carolina -- 5 years, $23 million, with $8 million of it guaranteed.

Dallas agreed to terms with ex-Detroit guard Kyle Kosier on a five-year, $15 million deal that includes a $5 million signing bonus.

Arizona agreed to terms with ex-Giants defensive tackle Kendrick Clancy on a four-year, $8.1 million deal.

Carolina re-signed RB DeShaun Foster to a three-year deal worth about $14.5 million.

Tampa Bay re-signed FB Mike Alstott to a one-year, $1.5 million deal.

Minnesota re-signed WR Koren Robinson to a three-year, $12.7 million deal that, with options, really is a one-year, $3 million deal.

Green Bay re-signed DE Aaron Kampman.

Default Re: Free agency off to quick start

looks like kimo is going on a free trip to ny(you think mangini hasnt learned anything from belichick?). el is all but gone. not any other steelers making the rounds.

looks like cinncinatti is willing to bring in anyone and everybody to get over the steelers hump. and washington are as big of players as ever. the new cba and salary cap did a great deal of bailing them out of salary cap hell.

te royal gets a $10 mil deal??????????????

jeruviscious and k. robinson have got to be 2 of the happiest people on earth. if koren can stay clean add the vikings to the happy list, especially after the deal the rams just gave bruce.

ive been hearing kemoeatu could be a free agent steal and baltimore did not want to lose this dude.

the safety market is really watered down for chris hope. this is good for the steelers opportunities if resigning him without over paying.

today i heard that jamal lewis' phone has not been ringing and that he has only received a low-ball offer from the ravens. i bet that offer goes up if c. taylor is with the viks. i would definitely laugh if the ravens lost both. their fans deserve that.

Does "Reaching an agreement" mean the player was signed? Or does that just mean the offer is on the table?

Free-agency front is quiet; Randle El meets with teams

Little activity for Steelers

Sunday, March 12, 2006
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



Steelers management treated the first day of free agency with one big yawn and, so far, that's about how other teams welcomed Steelers free agents.
Wide receiver Antwaan Randle El was busy talking to his second team in two days but, other than that, there was little activity with the Steelers or their dozen unrestricted free agents.
Omar Khan, the club's chief negotiator, spent Friday night meeting with agent Eric Metz discussing a deal to keep defensive end Brett Keisel. The Steelers did not sign any of their other 11 unrestricted free agents, or their two restricted free agents.
Randle El, considered the most valuable of their players given freedom at 12:01 a.m. yesterday, rejected an offer by his hometown Chicago Bears and was whisked on a private jet to Washington to discuss a deal with the Redskins and to attend a Wizards NBA game last night as their guest. His agent and the Bears continue to keep talks open.
Starting defensive end Kimo von Oelhoffen reportedly was in New York to visit with the Jets, but there was little news about any of the other Steelers. Safety Chris Hope, as of yesterday, had lined up no visits to other NFL teams

I think the Ravens will be looking towards one of the Big 4 RB's in the upcoming draft to fill this need.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

Yeah I thought that...who the hell is Robert Royal?

Buffalo have made yet another ill advised high cost stab at FA play.
