With Peyton Manning evolving from a Colt to a Bronco, it's no secret that Denver will probably trade Tim Tebow. Contrary to the media's perception, there are other players besides Tebow who'll be moved before the NFL draft in April.
Free agency's top prospects have all pretty much landed in their new homes. However, there remains a healthy amount of mid-tier guys left on the market.
Some teams will shift their focus to moving players to free cap space and stockpile picks for the upcoming draft or future drafts.
There has been plenty of speculation about who will go where and for what cost.
Who has since been rumored as a disposable asset to their current employer or a desired commodity by admirers?
According to NBC's Pro Football Talk, the New York Jets have reportedly thrown their name into the circle of potential teams that would like to utilize Tim Tebow's unique skill set. Thus, creating an avalanche of rumors and speculation for where "Tebowmania" will make its next appearance.
According to NFL.com, the Jets aren't the only ones interested. The article states there are five known suitors. However, they were not named.
Speculation would have you believe that the Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars would both be interested given Tebow's appeal in the state of Florida. Jacksonville would be an ideal candidate considering the close proximity to Gainesville and the need to fill seats.
Having Tebow on the roster would instantly attract more than the diehards to EverBank Field.
It's no secret that the Houston Texans had a surplus of running backs in their stable during 2011. With Arian Foster signing a new contract earlier this month, Ben Tate's potential playing time in 2012 was sharply decreased.
After losing Peyton Hillis to free agency, the Cleveland Browns could be interested in making a trade offer to the Texans for their backup to Foster. According to the News Herald, these have just been murmurs circulating behind the scenes, of which the Browns have refused to comment on.
However, silence means "yes" just as much as it could mean "no." The Browns clearly need a running back to supplement the loss of Hillis, and Tate would more than suffice.
Tate ran for 942 yards last season filling in for Foster, including 115 yards against the Browns. He'd likely cost Cleveland a pick in the fifth-sixth round.
The Carolina Panthers added running back Mike Tolbert to their squad this week, signing him to a four-year deal. Speculation ensued that the Panthers will look to trade either Jonathan Stewart or DeAngelo Williams.
Carolina has tremendous depth at the running back position and could opt to keep all three. However, According to ESPN NFC South Blogger Pat Yasinskas, "Stewart will be easier to trade."
Yasinskas is purely speculating but brings up quality points on why Williams could also be an option.
Might be difficult to get a trade partner for Williams. The Panthers signed him to a huge contract last summer, which could scare off some suitors. (John) Fox likes Williams a lot and could want a new toy for Peyton Manning in Denver.
Yasinskas has since slowed down on the possibilities in his latest posts but still states it's an option despite Carolina's efforts to dispute any speculation.
The Panthers ultimately have a choice to make. Keep both Williams and Stewart for one more year and let Williams go in free agency after 2012, or trade either Williams or Stewart now and take advantage of their trade value to bring in additional weapons through the draft.
The Cleveland Browns could be picking up their phone this week and making an inquiry...just a hunch.
This rumor didn't take me hours of combing through blogs, ridiculous statements or unofficial league sources to find a trade rumor to put on this slideshow. Nope. I wasn't required to play Adam Schefter for Bleacher Report.
Barring a physical on Wednesday, DeMeco Ryans will be traded to the Philadelphia Eagles from the Houston Texans.
The proposed trade for Ryans would include the Eagles' fourth-round pick and each team trading their third rounders. The third-round picks would see the Eagles move back 12 spots from No. 77 to No. 89 overall in the draft.
However, Ryans did suffer an Achilles injury in 2010 that caused him to start off slow last season. The trade is not officially done until pen is put to paper.
Philadelphia almost traded for Jerome Harrison during the middle of last season, but unfortunately the physical revealed that Harrison had a brain tumor.
Prior to the beginning of the 2011 season, rumors ran rampant that the Philadelphia Eagles would look to move Asante Samuel. Unable to find a suitor in such a short period of time, it's believed the Eagles are still open to a viable offer.
According to Gather.com back in February, the Denver Broncos inquired about the Philly's price for Samuel.
It's no secret that Philadelphia owes Samuel $9.4 million in 2012, a position they have a surplus for. With the likely addition of DeMeco Ryans becoming official later Wednesday, Philadelphia will have $5.8 million more on their books for 2012.
Philadelphia may be making calls rather than waiting for them when it comes to Samuel.
The latest rumors to circulate in the free agency world is that Rex Ryan and the New York Jets want to add the "Law Firm" to their roster. Presumably to keep peace between Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes.
Alright. Maybe they're just interested in finding a replacement for LaDanian Tomlinson.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis would be a solid addition since he's already familiar with the division. He's also been courted by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Green-Ellis would replace Cedric Benson in Cincinnati if he chooses to land in the Queen City. He only amassed 667 rushing yards but rushed for 11 touchdowns in 2011.
The Tennessee Titans have moved on from their pursuit of Peyton Manning. They have reset their sites on building a better defense by scheduling a visit for Tracy Porter.
Porter also has a visit scheduled with the Oakland Raiders and already made a trip to see the Cincinnati Bengals. Both teams need to fill holes at their cornerback position this offseason.
Porter's experience and age are just two factors that have attracted multiple suitors. The New Orleans Saints have been content letting Porter fish for a bigger contract.
If he can't find one on his tour of the big green lake of the NFL, he could end up back in 'Nawlins.
Peyton Manning has selected his new team and could be doing a bit of recruiting now that that's settled. Dallas Clark is a free man and could be joining the Denver Broncos by the end of the week.
Clark would be an obvious addition to the Broncos to help establish their new offense. As ESPN blogger Bill Williamson points out, former tight ends Daniel Fells and Dante Rosario "could see the writing on the wall" and leave town.
The old, "I'm not fired, I quit" routine.
Don't be surprised if Clark's catching balls from Peyton again in 2012.
The Tennessee Titans clearly want to corner the market. The Titans invited current Pittsburgh Steelers corner William Gay yesterday for a visit.
Gay has been exploring his options as Pittsburgh waits to see what the market dictates on his services. Tennessee has a clear need for a cornerback, and Gay would fix it.
New head coach Mike Munchak has made his intentions clear with the direction of his team by adding defensive end Kamerion Wimbley and re-signing Jason Babineaux this offseason. Tennessee will continue to bolster their defense and find a replacement for the recently departed Cortland Finnegan.
The Atlanta Falcons could lose a solid defensive piece in Curtis Lofton. The NFC South club seems content with letting Lofton explore his options and possibly join a division rival.
Lofton visited the New Orleans Saints this past Monday to see if that would be an ideal fit for both parties. He will be 26 years old by the start of the 2012 season, which means he's entering his prime years.
The concerns with Lofton are that he's mainly a two-down back and his price tag could be a little high. However, he's a monster when it comes to stepping up in the gap and stopping the run.
The linebacker has been rumored with a move to another NFC South team in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier in the week, but those talks have cooled down.
