Report: Terrance Knighton drawing interest from Patriots, Seahawks, Ravens

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.

New England, though? That would far less palatable. Alas, Troy Renck reports that the Pats are considering Pot Roast as a potential replacement for Vince Wilfork, who may end up in Houston.

AFCW update: Oakland adds Roy Helu; Ryan Mathews to Philly

Let's get caught up on the latest happenings within the AFCW:

Ryan Mathews is expected to sign with the Eagles, where he'll be at least part of the plan to replace LeSean McCoy. This will prompt all sorts of anti-Chip Kelly handwringing, but given the financial differences, it's not like Mathews has to replace McCoy's production all by himself. Anyway, San Diego had reportedly tried to bring Mathews back, but obviously failed.

Report: Bucs to visit with Stefen Wisniewski

Former Raiders center Stefen Wisniewski will start his free agency tour with a visit to Tampa Bay, according to Adam Caplan. Oakland is replacing Wisniewski by adding former Chiefs pivot Rodney Hudson, who'd been described as a possible target for the Broncos.

Jeff Legwold reported on Monday that Denver had expressed interested in Wisniewski, along with Chris Myers.

Revis bidding war developing; Patriots decline Browner option, may add Harvin

It looks like New England will indeed defend its SB title with a new pair of starting cornerbacks. As they did with Darrelle Revis, the Pats declined their 2015 option on Brandon Browner.

Revis, meanwhile, is again one of the hottest commodities on the market, with the Jets, Pats, Packers, and Steelers reportedly expressing interest, along with the Bills. According to Jason La Canfora, Revis has already been offered a contract with $48M over the first three years, including $40M in guarantees, possibly from the Jets.

Reports: Raiders add a pair of Smiths, may pursue DeMarco Murray

The Raiders have added former linebacker Malcolm Smith, who was named the MVP of SB 48 in Seattle's win over Denver. They've also reportedly agreed with tight end Lee Smith, formerly of the Bills.

Oakland will reportedly add center Rodney Hudson, but lost out on Ndamukong Suh and Randall Cobb. However, they have reportedly expressed interest in Dallas running back DeMarco Murray.

According to Ian Rapoport, Oakland is also set to host Arizona defensive tackle Dan Williams and Cincy tight end Jermaine Gresham. Williams has been floated as a possible target of Denver's.

Report: Terrance Knighton will not return to Broncos

Unsurprisingly, given the direction of the market, the Broncos will reportedly not re-sign defensive tackle Terrance Knighton, according to Dianna Marie Russini.

Per Russini, Oakland and Jack Del Rio are also passing on Knighton, who is expected to draw widespread interest, including from Chicago and John Fox.

Schefter: Rams, Eagles set to swap Bradford, Foles

The 2015 offseason is opening with a flurry of blockbuster trades. Jimmy Graham is headed to Seattle, Haloti Ngata is Detroit-bound, and Sam Bradford and Nick Foles are swapping places.

According to Adam Schefter, Philly is sending Foles and draft pick(s) to St. Louis in exchange for Bradford, the former number-one-overall pick. Bradford will make just under $13M in the final year of his rookie deal.

Glazer: Seahawks set to acquire Jimmy Graham from Saints

Having lost out on Julius Thomas in free agency, Seattle is reportedly working to acquire tight end Jimmy Graham from New Orleans, according to Jay Glazer.

Per Glazer, Seattle would send a first-round pick and center Max Unger (who's signed through 2016) to New Orleans in exchange for Graham and a fourth-rounder.

Klis: Broncos to host Owen Daniels on Wednesday

The Broncos will visit with free agent tight end Owen Daniels on Wednesday, according to Mike Klis. Daniels has spent all nine of his seasons playing for Gary Kubiak - eight in Houston, and one in Baltimore - and it looks like he'll follow Kubes to a third NFL city, and for a tenth season.

Packers may keep Bulaga, taking another right tackle off the market

Green Bay is nearing a deal to retain right tackle Bryan Bulaga, according to Ian Rapoport. The 2010 first-rounder has been expected to draw upwards of $7M/year on the open market.

While Bulaga was probably always too expensive for Denver's taste, it doesn't help their cause that another right tackle is apparently off the market. Previously, Derek Newton and Doug Free re-signed with Houston and Dallas, respectively. Also on Tuesday, Cincy re-signed Eric Winston, who was a member of Gary Kubiak's first draft class in Houston and played under him for six seasons.
