St. Louis Rams
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported late last night that the Washington Redskins had acquired the St. Louis Rams' first-round Draft pick in exchange for their first-and-second-round picks, as well as their first-round selections for 2013 and 2014.
Everyone knew the Rams were shopping the No. 2 pick of next April's NFL Draft. They have been publicly set on 2010's No. 1 overall selection Sam Bradford as their quarterback moving forward in spite of his prolonged issues to remain healthy, and frankly inadequate play throughout the first ten weeks of last season. With Andrew Luck a presumed lock to go to Indianapolis before St. Louis would on the clock, and with Heisman winner Robert Griffin III from Baylor the designated second-best prospect on most scouts' draft boards, the Rams were facing questionable value in retaining their slot in the order, and so they entertained offers.

Maybe next year? ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Browns offered at least three first round picks to the Rams to move up two slots in April’s draft for the chance to draft Robert Griffin III, “and possibly even the second-round pick.” SI’s Peter King tweeted that “Cleveland was in it, but didn’t want to give three ones and a 2.” Schefter added that, “Cleveland...

ESPN’s Adam Schefter was asked whether or not he believes the New England Patriots will go after Texans defensive end/linebacker Mario Williams once free agency begins.
Schefter gave his answer on his ESPN blog.

With the St. Louis Rams reportedly agreeing to a deal that will send the second-overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to the Washington Redskins in exchange for what amounts to three first-round selections, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Cleveland Browns may have been willing to pay up but were too late to the game.
The widespread expectation is that Indianapolis will make...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Peyton Manning’s camp is looking to make a decision on where he’ll play next season within the next week. He prefers to stay in the AFC, but is open to playing in the NFC.
Right now the only NFC team I could see Manning being interested in playing for are the Arizona Cardinals.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, free agent wide receiver Randy Moss will work out for the San Francisco 49ers on Monday.
Moss already had a very impressive work out with the Saints back on March 6th and has made it clear that he’s looking to go to a team where he can win a Super Bowl. Both the 49ers and Saints fit that mold.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Atlanta Falcons worked out free agent linebacker Lofa Tatupu on Friday.
Just last month, Tatupu worked out for the Saints and Titans. In the end, it looks like neither team was interested.
Tatupu was released by the Seahawks prior to the 2011 season and decided to take the year off to rest up and make sure his body is ready to play football again.
Adam Schefter reported on Twitter less than an hour ago that the Colts were taking calls for All Pro Defensive End Dwight Freeney. Freeney has 102.5 career sacks at this point, but still has a lot in his tank. The way Freeney plays, I would guess you could pencil him in for 30 sacks [...]
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Indianapolis Colts are listening to trade offers for Pro Bowl defensive end Dwight Freeney.
Freeney is scheduled to make roughly $14 million in 2012, which is a lot of money for the Colts to pay him, since they’re already having salary cap problems as it is.
Freeney just turned 32 years-old last month and should have at least a few good years left in him.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Atlanta Falcons have signed linebacker Lofa Tatupu.
After taking a year off from the NFL, Tatupu was able to catch on and try to revive a career that was momentarily derailed by injuries.
