Free Agency - Day 2

Well it was a bit slower today and nothing overly interesting happened in dove valley. Marshall did meet with the 'Hawks but it looks like nothing will happen there for a while. Now I picked up on this little bits from the blogs, ESPN, and other locations.

San Francisco right tackle has yet to make it to Denver. A visit was agreed upon Thursday but apparently negotiations with the 6-6, 325-pound unrestricted free agent have bogged down. Pashos visited Friday with the Washington Redskins but left without a deal.

Update: Niners backup right tackle Tony Pashos left the Redskins without a contract and was headed for Cleveland, ESPN's John Clayton is reporting.

The Broncos are hosting Baltimore defensive end Dwan Edwards for a visit this weekend.

Edwards also visited the but he is going to give the Broncos their chance.

Update: Edwards is well-suited to play defensive end in a 3-4 defense. He beat out Trevor Pryce for a starting job this season and is active, quick and stout against the run. There is one potential obstacle toward Edwards getting a deal, his medical background. Edwards had a spinal fusion procedure two years ago and sources have questioned whether his health is going to pass the scrutiny of a physical.

The signing of Nate Jones may mean the Broncos won’t re-sign veteran Ty Law, who was lured out of retirement at midseason last year. It also may mean Smith is not progressing as the Broncos thought he would when they traded away their first-round pick in this year’s draft (No. 14 overall) to Seattle for the right to move up in the second round of last year’s draft.

Rex Hadnot also visited but left without a deal in place. Hadnot is also drawing serious interest from Jacksonville.

Update: Things are going well for Cleveland Browns free agent offensive lineman Rex Hadnot on his visit with the Denver Broncos, according to a league source. We're hearing that Hadnot may sign with the Broncos. No deal is imminent, but there is momentum being generated toward Hadnot becoming a Bronco.

Update (not sure): The NFP also reports that Philadelphia Eagles DE Jason Babin is drawing interest from several teams, including — you guessed it — the Broncos.

Update: According to a report by Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Mawae is in talks with the Redskins and Denver Broncos. The Tennessee Titans would like the 16-year veteran to return as a backup, but Mawae is seeking a starting job. The Broncos cut their center Casey Weigmann while the Redskins re-signed their center Casey Rabach late last night to a $12.3 million, three-year contract. It’s not known if Rabach or Mawae would be looked at to play guard. The Redskins have multiple holes on their line. Stay tuned.

So not much happening, there are a few deals in the works at the moment so it will be interesting to see how the weekend goes. As I find new things I will update this article. ~ Aussie Out

  1. Well Pashos signed with Shanny. Still possible on Edwards and Hadnot.
