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.

The New England Patriots have added WR Nate Washington. More on the signing here.
Josh McCown On The Trade Block?
The Browns signed QB Robert Griffin III earlier Thursday, as the team continues their QB overhaul. The team is still likely to take a QB at No. 2 overall (most likely Carson Wentz), which means QB Josh McCown is a trade candidate.
With RGIII set to become a Brown today, that figures to make Josh McCown available in a trade. Jets, Broncos, Rams still with QB questions.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 24, 2016
The Jets have yet to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Broncos are looking for a Brock Osweiler/Peyton Manning replacement and the Rams are planning on starting Case Keenum if an upgrade isn't found. The signing of RGIII also means the Broncos are the only team really in the mix of Colin Kaepernick.
McCown is in the second year of a three-year, $14 million deal. He has a cap hit just over $5 million in each of the next two seasons.
Karlos Dansby Visiting Bengals
When LB Karlos Dansby was cut by the Browns, he said the Bengals "were licking their chops" that he was on the market. Now, Dansby is visiting the Bengals.
In other non-RGIII AFC North news, former Browns' LB Karlos Dansby is visiting the Bengals today, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 24, 2016
Dansby isn't the player he once was, but he was strong in pass coverage last season. That's something the Bengals could use, as their LBs as unit struggled in pass coverage. The Bengals typically don't spend a ton of money in free agency outside of re-signings, so Dansby would likely need to take a cheap deal.
Courtney Upshaw Visiting Falcons
The Falcons are still in need of front seven help, and they're getting a visit from one of the top free agents left on the market.
Upshaw was a 3-4 OLB for the Ravens, but was better against the run than he was getting to the QB. In the Falcons' 4-3 scheme, he might be shifted to DE if he signs.
Colts Land Patrick Robinson
The Dallas Cowboys were close to landing CB Patrick Robinson, but another team landed the former first round pick.
The #Colts signed CB Patrick Robinson to a 3-year deal worth more than $12M, source said. They get a starter late in free agency.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 24, 2016
Robinson will start for the Colts, who needed secondary help. The Cowboys have missed out on another potential addition in the secondary, so they'll have to continue their search.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
