While NFL free agency is still going on, most of the big players are off the market. Still, there are several quality players left on the market that could turn out to be bargains for teams. While the NFL Draft is approaching, there will continue to be plenty of NFL free agency rumors, news and speculation in the coming days. Check out the latest and greatest of those offseason rumors below.
Browns Out On Kaepernick?
The Browns are still searching for a QB, but it doesn't look like it will be Colin Kaepernick. Browns' President of Football Operations told Mary Kat Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the team is not in talks to trade for Kaepernick and they don't anticipate re-visiting them. Instead, the Browns are focusing on possibly signing Robert Griffin III. The team is doing due diligence on Griffin, although no signing is imminent.
Josh Gordon Suspension
The Browns are operating as if they won't have Josh Gordon next season, although they would like to have him since the team needs WR help. Gordon has applied for reinstatement, but the league has not ruled yet. The NFL issued a statement earlier today.

Many had reported that the NFL needed to make a decision within 60 days of Gordon applying for reinstatement, a time frame which has already passed. However, that does not appear to be the case.
Nick Fairley To Meet With Patriots
The Patriots have been surprisingly active this offseason and might not be done yet. They are visiting with DT Nick Fairley.
Rams free-agent DT Nick Fairley on my flight to owners meetings this am. He tells me he's heading there to meet with the Patriots.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) March 21, 2016
Fairley has talent, but didn't produce a ton as a backup for the Rams. If he comes cheaply, the Patriots could get quite the addition.
New England Still Hoping For First Round Pick
Speaking of the Patriots, they are still hoping to get the first round pick back that was stripped from them over Deflategate. New England owner Robert Kraft wrote a letter to Roger Goodell, asking for that pick back. There is no word yet on Goodell's response. Don't expect the NFL to give New England back the pick, as the NFL seems committed to punishing the Patriots.
Seahawks Interest In Karlos Dansby?
The Browns cut Dansby earlier this offseason, and he might make his way West.
The #AZCardinals haven't reached out to LB Karlos Dansby, hearing the Seahawks have shown some interest.— Mike Jurecki (@mikejurecki) March 21, 2016
The Seahawks don't have much of a need at ILB, but Dansby would provide quality, veteran depth.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
