New England Patriots

Vincent Jackson. Brandon Lloyd. Mario Williams. Have Patriots fans learned yet that the team rarely goes after the prize pony in free agency? Well, B/R Patriots featured columnist Cian Fahey has, and he has a look at two dark-horse candidates for free-agent wide receivers.

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss gives us a good rundown of some thoughts on each of the Patriots pending free agents


Miami Dolphins

B/R Dolphins featured columnist Thomas Galicia takes an in-depth look at all the free-agent rumors, potential signings and storylines. 

You can't help but feel sorry for Dolphins fans who have been strung along so many times in the past, only to get burned every time. It appears that's what's happening with Peyton Manning, as well, and Izzy Gould of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel shows some sympathy for fans who had their hopes up...again.


New York Jets

As we talked about yesterday, the Jets are in something of a financial bind. Still, that shouldn't stop general manager Mike Tannenbaum from looking under every rock and considering every option. B/R Jets featured columnist Danny Paskas has thoughts on seven free agents the Jets must pursue

But of course, they have some in-house FAs to take care of, as well. ESPN New York's Rich Cimini has a look at some issues facing the Jets before the clock strikes 4:00 pm ET.


Buffalo Bills

Athletes will do some funny things to try and persuade other talented players to join their team. Most recently, Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson and linebacker Shawne Merriman took to Twitter to try to convince free-agent wideout Vincent Jackson to join the team. B/R Bills featured columnist Chris Trapasso has the story.

But believe it or not, it's not all about free agency. B/R NFL draft lead writer Sigmund Bloom has a look at a Bills seven-round "perfect world" mock draft. Anything that has the Bills finding answers at 4-3 defensive end should be considered a "perfect world."
