Giants sign Jenkins; Harrison interested in Ravens; Revis wants to stay in NJ?

Jeff Legwold and Mike Klis have long maintained that Denver would be looking to upgrade at running back this offseason. According to Klis, one of the players the Broncos have targeted is Pittsburgh's Rashard Mendenhall, who made $1.8M in the final season of his rookie contract.

The 25-year-old back, who is listed at 225 lbs, managed just 244 yards on 60 touches, with three fumbles (!) in six games in 2012; he had suffered a torn ACL in the Steelers' 2011 regular season finale.

Mendenhall has reportedly also drawn interest from Arizona and Miami.

Klis says the Broncos have a list of 12-15 free agents they're considering with varying levels of interest; Mike Florio is hearing that many teams are using the legal tampering period to measure the market in advance of Tuesday's 4pm ET opening of free agency.


The Giants have inked DT Cullen Jenkins to a three-year deal for just $8M and $3M guaranteed; his prior deal with the Eagles had been for five years and $30M.

Cincinnati will retain DE Wallace Gilberry and kicker Mike Nugent for two years; the Bengals re-upped with their punter and long snapper earlier in the week.

Washington re-signed long snapper Nick Sundberg.

The agent for ex-Steelers LB James Harrison says his client would be interested in joining his former archrivals in Baltimore.


Word out of Darrelle Revis's camp is that the corner does not want to be traded from New Jersey.

Brett Favre Tony Gonzalez reportedly wants to extend his career by one more year with the Falcons, provided he gets to skip training camp.

According to Aaron Wilson, the Ravens asked WR Anquan Boldin to take a $2M pay cut.

Miami is reportedly in hot pursuit of Rams WR Brandon Gibson.

The LOLJets have reportedly targeted Cowboys LB Victor Butler.

Two teams have apparently expressed interest in Giants backup QB David Carr; the Giants are reportedly one of five teams in on Titans DT Sen'Derrick Marks.
