Baltimore Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome said he anticipates free agent Ed Reed’s status to be finalized this week. Reed completed his two-day visit with the Texans on Friday, but he left town without a deal.

Now that a week of free agency has passed, the Tampa Tribune doesn’t expect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to pursue a trade for New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis for a few more weeks.

Free agent tackle Jake Long left St. Louis this weekend without signing a deal with the Rams, and is now contemplating re-signing with the Miami Dolphins, or pursuing other free agent opportunities. He still could sign with the Rams. Meanwhile, the Palm Beach Post expects the Dolphins to target free agent tackle Eric Winston if they fail to re-sign Long.

The Cleveland Browns hosted free-agent cornerback Brent Grimes this week. The former Atlanta Falcons cornerback missed last season with a torn Achilles’ tendon, but made 28 starts for Atlanta over the prior two seasons.

The Browns have also looked into free agent tight end Fred Davis.
