Falcons add Jackson; Pats nab Leon Washington, will host Adrian Wilson, John Abraham

Welcome to Day 3 of Free Agency 2013 - here's what happened on Day 1 and Day 2, if you need to get caught up, or refer back.

More from Jason La Canfora on the Broncos not being done: (4:00pm ET)

Denver is not done adding players even after the addition of Welker, Terrance Knighton and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and the franchising of left tackle Ryan Clady.

They still want to address pass rusher and will release Elvis Dumervil if he does not take a reduced salary rather than pay him $12 million, with Connor Barwin, Dwight Freeney and Richard Seymour among the potential targets. They still could add depth in the secondary as well, according to a league source.

Due to the cap situation we'd mentioned earlier, it's not likely the Broncos could sign anyone else before the Dumervil situation is settled, or they've released another player or reworked another deal. Mike Klis's assessment of Denver's cap status would appear to agree with that sentiment. (4:00pm ET)


Jason La Canfora says the Broncos are still active, and may add either a pass rusher or more secondary depth: "Broncos remain in Lombardi or bust mode. Pass rusher like Barwin/Freeney/Seymour on radar. Could still add depth to secondary too" (12:18pm ET)

There's another interesting bit of news regarding the Wes Welker signing, and it apparently involves John Elway & Co. again underbidding Tennessee's Bud Adams but coming out on top. As they did with Peyton Manning last year, the Titans reportedly offered Welker more money, only to see their target choose Denver.

In Welker's case, Tennessee apparently offered $15M over two years, although it's unknown how much of that would have been guaranteed. Denver ended up giving the wideout $12M for two years, and it's all fully guaranteed, plus a $150K incentive each year should he top 90 receptions. (11:00am ET)

Albert Breer says the charisma of John Elway juxtaposed against the iciness of the Patriot Way had a lot to do with getting Wes Welker to Denver. (12:10pm ET)

Ben Muth loves the value of signing Louis Vasquez as compared to the contract Tennessee gave Andy Levitre. But he offers an explanation for Vasquez's remarkable lack of holding penalties - Louis doesn't use his hands very much, nor does he do it well. (12:10pm ET)

Bill Barnwell sticks up for the Patriot Way and expects both Denver and New England will prosper from the Welker and Amendola moves. (12:49pm ET)


Kansas City has finally gotten rid of QB Matt Cassel, and they signed Dolphins CB Sean Smith (three years, $18M, $11M guaranteed). New backup QB Chase Daniel's contract is worth $10M over three years. (5:35pm ET)

San Diego gave former Jags CB Derek Cox $20M over four years, with $10.25M guaranteed(!). (11:00am ET)

Oakland will host Bengals CB Terence Newman. (11:00am ET)


New England is hosting Bills WR Donald Jones, Falcons DE John Abraham, and Cards S Adrian Wilson, and added Seahawks KR/RB Leon Washington. Word that the Pats had been given a chance to match Denver's offer to Wes Welker was apparently moot, or pure negotiating tactic, as New England had sewn up a deal with Danny Amendola a day earlier. (10:55pm ET)

The LOLJets will host Chargers LB Antwan Barnes, and there's talk that Kevin Kolb could end up starting ahead of Buttfumble in NJ. (12:52pm ET)

According to Jason La Canfora, Miami could end up retaining T Jake Long, who'd been rumored to be joining the Rams. They're hosting Bucs Michael Bennett, and the structure of their deal with WR Mike Wallace puts the brunt of the cap hit on the 2014 season. (4:00pm ET)


Pittsburgh will visit with ex-Bears TE Kellen Davis and is reportedly having Cards RB Beanie Wells in for a physical. (11:00am ET)

Cleveland retained RB Chris Ogbonnaya on a two-year deal and is said to be serious about signing Washington TE Fred Davis. (11:00am ET)

La Canfora also says T Andre Smith may end up staying in Cincinnati; the Bengals visited with Browns QB Josh Johnson and Niners KR/WR Ted Ginn, Jr. today. (5:35pm ET)


Indy agreed with Jets safety LaRon Landry, he of the epic guns, on a four-year deal for $24M with $14M guaranteed. They also added Niners DT Ricky Jean-Francois on a four-year deal worth $22M. (4:00pm ET)

Tennessee will retain KR Darius Reynaud and will host Rams WR Brandon Gibson, who has already met with the Jets and will visit the Dolphins. (4:00pm ET)


St. Louis is reportedly nearing a deal with Dolphins T Jake Long. (4:00pm ET)

San Francisco is hosting Eagles CB Nnamdi Asomugha, Lions S Louis Delmas, and Bengals LB Dan Skuta, while WR Mario Manningham renegotiated his contract. (7:35pm ET)

Arizona will, in the coming days, cut QB Kevin Kolb, for whom the Cards had traded new Denver corner Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick back in 2011. They also signed VIkings LB Jasper Brinkley and will host Raiders DE Matt Shaughnessy. (9:27pm ET)

Seattle signed Bucs DE Michael Bennett for one year and just $5M, which doesn't help Elvis Dumervil's cause. (7:35pm ET)


The Giants restructured with OL David Diehl, will retain LB Keith Rivers, added Steelers safety Ryan Mundy, and are apparently interested in Bengals LB Rey Maualuga. (6:45pm ET)

S Brandon Meriweather accepted a pay cut in Washington., where Bucs T Jeremy Trueblood has agreed to a deal. (12:10pm ET)

Philly added Ravens CB Cary Williams, Giants S Kenny Phillips, and Texans LB Connor Barwin. (5:47pm ET)


The Vikings have agreed to terms with QB Matt Cassel (one year, $4M), and they're interested in longtime division rivals Packers WR Greg Jennings (whom they'll host) and Bears LB Brian Urlacher. (4:00pm ET)

Lions tackle Jeff Backus is retiring. (4:25pm ET)


Atlanta has agreed with Rams RB Steven Jackson, while Falcons center Todd McClure is retiring. (4:25pm ET)

Tampa Bay is interested in Seattle KR/RB Leon Washington. The Bucs are indeed the primary suitor for Darrelle Revis, but they haven't come to an internal agreement about trading away their 2013 first-rounder. (11:00am ET)

Carolina re-signed QB Derek Anderson for one year. (12:00pm ET)

New Orleans agreed with Steelers CB Keenan Lewis on a five-year deal ($26.3M w/$10.5M guaranteed). (4:25pm ET)
