DeMarco Murray is visiting Philly with the expectation of signing with them, according to Adam Schefter. Oakland, Dallas, and Jacksonville have reportedly also pursued the 2014 rushing champion.
The Eagles have previously traded LeSean McCoy to Buffalo, had Frank Gore back out of an agreement, and agreed with former Chargers back Ryan Mathews. However, Mathews has not yet signed, and may be headed elsewhere if Murray signs.
Johnson would have replaced Eddie Royal, who left the Chargers for a three-year deal with Chicago, where he'll reunite with Jay Cutler and Adam Gase.
Free agent center Stefen Wisniewski is visiting Seattle, according to Mike Garafolo. The Seahawks are in search of a replacement for Max Unger, who went to New Orleans as part of the Jimmy Graham deal.
The Broncos are visiting or will visit with former Ravens safety Darian Stewart, according to reports. The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, who first reported the visit, says it's taking place Wednesday night, while Troy Renck reports that it will happen on Thursday.
A 5-11, 214-pounder, Stewart is seen as a possible replacement for Rahim Moore. Per Wilson, Stewart could return to the Ravens and has also drawn interest from the Giants, whose own free agent safety, Antrel Rolle, agreed to terms with Chicago on Wednesday night.
Denver is scheduled to visit with defensive lineman Vance Walker sometime this week, according to Mike Klis. Walker, who was released by Kansas City on Friday in a caponomic move, was set to draw a $2.7M salary in 2015.
The 6-2, 305-pounder saw only 238 snaps in 16 games, but graded out at plus-6.8 and notched a pair of sacks. According to Klis, Denver views Walker as a potential five-technique end.
Denver is scheduled to host guard Shelley Smith on Friday, according to Mike Klis. Originally drafted in 2010 by Gary Kubiak's Texans, Smith spent two years with Houston, two more with St. Louis, and another with Miami, who released him on Tuesday.
The 6-4, 310-pound CSU alum, who will turn 28 in May, was due to draw a $2.75M salary this season. Per Klis, Smith is first meeting with the Seahawks on Thursday.
Futures: Two Non-College Prospects
I still may be reaching with my comparison for Duncan, but based on what I’ve seen his comparable upside is within the range of Heath Miller: not fast enough to be an every-down, vertical threat, but a fluid athlete with strength and excellent hands in tight coverage who can win in the open field.
There's also a likening to Dallas Clark in Waldman's evaluation. Obviously, we should all be somewhat cautious before getting too excited.
But we should also consider the possibility that Duncan was just waiting for the right situation, and that the departure of Julius Thomas made him see Denver as precisely that. (h/t 303user and aldenbrown)
It's been suggested that Denver would like Moore back at a below market price, but it's hard to envision that happening at this point.
Oakland has opened Wednesday's free agency activity with a big splash, agreeing with linebacker Curtis Lofton and defensive tackle Dan Williams, according to Rand Getlin. The Raiders had added linebacker Malcolm Smith on Tuesday.
On Monday, New Orleans cut Lofton, their leading tackler of 2014 and defensive captain. Williams was a rumored target of Denver's as well.
If Terrance Knighton wanted to follow Jack Del Rio to Oakland, we were fine with that. Heading to Washington, where he'll visit on Wednesday? Also totally okay.
