NFL free agency well under away and while most of the big names are already off the market, there are a few notable players still on the market. Trade rumors are also starting to heat up with just over a month until the upcoming NFL Draft. Here are all the latest news and rumors you need to know.
This is the afternoon version of our Rumors Roundup. Click here for the morning one.
Saints And LB Manti Te'o
The Saints have focused on their defense this offseason and they appear close to adding another potential starter.
I am told by a source that free-agent LB Mantei Te'o is close to a deal with the Saints, could sign Tuesday. https://t.co/AzZqvNTpCi— Dan Graziano (@DanGrazianoESPN) March 20, 2017
Te'o has spent his entire career with the San Diego Chargers, who spent a second round pick on him. Te'o struggled with injuries this year, playing in only three games and recording just 17 tackles.
Browns Hosted Bradley McDougald
The Browns were busy early in free agency, adding a few offensive players. Now, they're looking at a defensive one.

The Bucs re-signed Chris Conte and signed J.J. Wilcox away from the Cowboys, meaning McDougald could leave. The Browns have a need at safety and McDougald would likely be a starter.
Steelers Sign Two, Host Another
The Pittsburgh Steelers were quiet early in free agency, electing to focus on Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown instead. But they did make a pair of moves today.

Cornerback Coty Sensabaugh agrees to terms with the Steelers, per source. It came down to the Steelers and Giants.— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) March 20, 2017
Davis could contribute as a backup running back and/or kick returner. He's bounced around the NFL in the last year. Sensabaugh signed with the Rams last year, but was cut during the season. He ended up on the Giants, but has now joined the Steelers. He'll fight for the nickel corner role. The Steelers are also hosting another player for a visit.
