Staying in the AFC East, the Bills are said to be close to signing the best defensive free agent on the market in OLB, DE Mario Williams. Williams was the first pick taken by the Texans in the 2006 NFL Draft. They were also rumored to be close to signing New Orleans Saints wide receiver Robert Meachem, but he instead signed with the San Diego Chargers. The Miami Dolphins traded away star wide receiver Brandon Marshall to the Bears in exchange for two draft picks, both believed to be 3rd round picks. You thought maybe Miami was looking to clear space for Peyton Manning and Reggie Wayne, but Wayne re-signed with the Colts.
The Tampa Bay Bucs have had a huge start to free agency as they signed away wide receiver Vincent Jackson from the Chargers with a 5 year deal. Today they signed former Saint All-Pro guard Carl Nicks and signed ex-Browns CB Eric Wright.
The other big news from today is that the best wide receiver in the NFL, Calvin Johnson, received a seven year, $130 million dollar extension.
Lastly, Peyton Manning is meeting with the Titans today after visiting with the Dolphins yesterday.
