UPDATE 1:05 PM
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports free agent runningback Reggie Bush is drawing significant interest from three teams, but the Dolphins aren’t one of them:
A source very close to Bush tells me three teams have been talking to Bush agent Joel Segal and that money involved in those talks is significant. The source would provide no details of the money or name the teams but it is clear the interest in Bush isn’t just of the making-a-call variety.
The source is, however, telling me the Dolphins are not one of those teams.
Indeed, the source is saying Reggie Bush categorically will not be back in Miami.
UPDATE 10:30 AM
NFL Free agency has begun, and already two prominent defensive backs have re-upped with their current teams.
Buffalo Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin has become the NFL’s highest-paid returner, as he’s has agreed to a four-year, $20 million contract. McKelvin averaged an NFL-high 18.7 yards on his 23 punt returns and scored twice, while also averaging 28.3 yards on 18 kickoff returns.
It’s finally here. NFL Free Agency is kicking off, and the first bid signing has been made, as ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the Falcons have retained safety William Moore with a five-year deal. Moore, who went to the Pro Bowl in 2012, was viewed as one of the top free agent defensive backs.
The San Diego Chargers have assigned the original-pick tender to restricted free agent WR Danario Alexander. In a nine-game stretch last year, he racked up 37 catches for 658 yards and seven touchdowns, which amounts to 66/1,170/13 if prorated across 16 games
The New England Patriots interested in keeping wide receiver Donte’ Stallworth. The team could lose Wes Welker, and is contemplating whether or not to cut Brandon Loyd.
