Still some very interesting names available:

Gaither (OT)
Snelling (RB)
Wicky Williams (RB)
Steve Smith (WR)
Malcolm Floyd (WR)

Welp.

Saw this weekend that Snelling went back to Atlanta for a one year deal and Wicky just inked a 2YR/4MIL deal with the Ravens.

*sigh*

Hopefully, all those glowing camp reports turn into some nice roster surprises.

Ravens lost McClain but got Leach, so their FB is as good as ever.  Snelling would have been a nice add, but... Arians Arians Arians, Arians Arians, Arians Arians Arians Arians:  Arians.  One answer, the Arians argument aside, would be to have Johnson switch from TE to full-time FB, or to have Redman take some snaps there.  But, ya know.

Gaither must be messed up.  Bad.

Read that the Gints will be talking to Smith.  Market's moved in their favor.

Still might be a chance for Cotchery, but I'm skeptical.  Woulda been done by now if it was gonna be.

But... they're shelving the Timmons and Troy deals to possibly get something done in FA?  Boggles the mind.  So many possibilities!  Well, past tense.  Probably something as exciting as signing Max/Hotel back.  Yay.  Yay Yay Yay.  Arians Arians Arians.  Yay.

Iggles singed Steve Smith.

Steelers offered former Bungle TE Reggie Kelly vet min; Kelly averred that he would rather stay retired.

Cotchery remains unsigned.

Couple of guys worth noting:  ex-Colts CB Kelvin Hayden, missed games last year w/ a neck injury, good playmaker who's hurt a lot.  Might be worth a gamble.  Ex-Saints S Darren Sharper, 35, unsigned.  Couldn't be worse than Mundy.  If Pola got hurt, Sharper can still make plays, IMO, as a short-term backup.

Ravens gete Lee Evans for a R4, and $5M salary each of the next 2 years.

Good move for the Ratties, who lost Mason, but then again Boldin seemed like a good move and... meh. 

Frankly, their OL looks worse than ours (for realz!), and Fucco's gonna have to channel him some Ben to get the damned ball down to Evans.

I know draft picks are more valuable under the new system and all, but a R4?  Plus, they gotta eat that contract?

Little steep for an average "B" level receiver, IMO.  And, you know the player is being overpaid if a trade like this goes through and he doesn't ask his new team to restructure his contract.

Not to worry.

We're stocked to the gills with OTs.

Good option for addressing Pittsburgh's depth at safety.

Realistically, I think he could play either position.
