    Wanted to start a thread for all the rumors/reports of who we are talking to in FA until we can actually starting signing on Wed.

    So far, I have just heard of Oliver Vernon. Great player, but doesn't make a lot of sense here unless they play him as a 3-4 DE? I think he is more suited to play OLB and wouldn't really fit in there with Orakpo and Morgan. That would be a lot of money to throw at 3 players for the same position.

    "Legal" tampering? That is kind of oxymoronic don't you think? If its legal its not tampering...its inquiry.

    If the Broncos showed anything, it's that multiple good pass rushers are needed. Would be good for Morgan/Rak to get a little rest during games. We would have another guy to get after the qb.

    I really hope we sign a rt though to get my hopes up that we draft Ramsey and stay away from Tunsil.

    Richie Incognito a driven man? Bank on it - BN Blitz

    Good article on Richie Incognito. Good stuff with him an Taylor Lewan as well, (He burns Lewan good). Would love to have them two playing next to each other this year. Him and Schwartz would turn our O-line from a weakness to a strength. Incognito has had past problems, but he is still a very good G. I would like him on a 3 year 5-7 mill a year deal.

    gonna take more than that to land Incognito. Arguably the best inside lineman available, probably wants about $8M/yr IMO, but if we could get him for less then hell yes

    I agree that signing Vernon would tie up an odd amount of $$ at OLB.. A position we are pretty decent at [albeit badly needs more depth].. but Vernon is just 25 years old, and would instantly become our best pass rusher.. So let's not act like it's a TERRIBLE idea.. Pass rush wins games, and even championships [DENVER].. He's a great player, just entering his prime at 25. But I DO agree that it'd be an odd use of our resources.

    Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Titans are the early "leaders" to land free agent NT Damon Harrison.

    The Jets would ideally like to retain "Snacks," but Cole reports his asking price is currently too steep for Gang Green, which is one of the few NFL teams short on salary cap space this offseason. At 6-foot-3 and 339 pounds, Harrison would take over as the Titans' two-down nose tackle in Dick LeBeau's 3-4.

    Finally getting a good NT would be great.
