We’ve been trying to keep a running tab on the likelihood of some of the bigger receiver names in free agency this offseason and gauge whether they will make it to the free agent market in mid-March or be re-signed or tagged. We’ve seen things flip flop back and forth on Vincent Jackson. New Orleans is so focused on the new contract for Drew Brees that Marques Colston hasn’t been addressed, and Reggie Wayne is definitely not going to be in Indy next season. But what about a big time receiver that has good familiarity with Bills head coach Chan Gailey and is only 27?
Kansas City’s Dwayne Bowe is a huge target and touchdown maker and at age 27 would be very attractive to a lot of teams. But he’s worked with Chan Gailey before as Buffalo’s head coach was his offensive coordinator in 2008, a season that still stands as his best in terms of receptions (86), 2nd best in touchdowns (7) and third best in yardage (1,022).

For the last two seasons with the Broncos, McCarthy registered four tackles (two solo) and three special...
If there is anything that is causing anxiety in this 2012 offseason of discontent in Pittsburgh, it’s the suddenly building animosity between two guys who have yet to meet. This is at least, what is being portrayed by the Pittsburgh Media and many websites like this one as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and new Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley have yet to meet face to face. I have...
The Kansas City Chiefs have shifted former New England Patriots offensive tackle Steve Maneri to tight end.
He even has a new jersey number befitting his new position: No. 87.
Maneri, 23, played collegiately at Temple, beginning his career with the Houston Texans after going undrafted.

The Peyton Manning story will be a daily soap opera for most of the offseason. Matt Flynn is this year’s Kevin Kolb. Drew Brees and Alex Smith aren’t going anywhere. After those four men, there hasn’t been a lot of talk about free agent quarterbacks. We’d argue that two players — Kyle Orton and Jason…
