It's amazing what can happen on a daily basis in the NFL and during the free-agency period.

Even if it's just another visit for a player, a minor signing or a veteran player receiving interest from his first suitor this offseason, it shifts and shapes narratives throughout the league.

Remember, what happens in free agency could impact the draft, even if it's later-round draft picks.

Let's get to it. We have three players to cover.


Jags Cut Hurns, Receiver Garners Immediate Interest

The Jacksonville Jaguars have let a second homegrown wide receiver talent walk this offseason.

The Jaguars released Allen Hurns on Tuesday.

Hurns received almost immediate interest around the league.

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN, Hurns is set to meet with the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday.

Anderson noted that Hurns was supposed to originally meet with the Jets Wednesday, but due to weather concerns, he'll meet with them later.

The Cowboys also had a meeting with fellow wide receiver Dontrelle Inman earlier this week, according to Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

With a need for receiving depth, Hurns would be a great get for the Cowboys, but they have some serious cap-room issues.

According to Over the Cap, the Cowboys have less than $1 million in cap space, whereas the Jets have well over $40 million.

There's a clear money discrepancy there.

Hurns is still a solid player despite his injury history and would be a great No. 2 opposite Dez Bryant as he'd likely beat out Terrance Williams for that role.

Either way, Hurns will get picked up and soon.


Restricted Free Agent Meredith Visits Colts

It's not too often we get some interesting news on a restricted free agent, but here we are.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, Chicago Bears wide receiver Cameron Meredith has met with the Indianapolis Colts.

As Yates noted, in Meredith's case, the Bears can match any offer sheet or they will lose Meredith.

And not only will they lose him, they also won't receive any compensation in the form of draft picks.

Meredith's 2017 season was lost due to a knee injury that included an ACL tear and damage to other ligaments.

But 2016 was the year he showed out, going for nearly 900 yards on 66 catches.

When he's on the field, Meredith is an excellent player, but there are concerns with his knees now.

If he goes to the Colts, it would be great for a (hopefully) returning Andrew Luck.

With Donte Moncrief gone, Meredith would supply an unexpected boost to a receiving corps that really only has T.Y. Hilton.

The Colts should offer Meredith a deal the Bears will be unable to match. If Meredith returns to Chicago, he could likely get lost in the shuffle of newcomers Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel and Trey Burton.

Meredith will be exciting to watch in 2018 if his 2016 campaign is indicative of things to come.


Suh Intrigued by Rams, Has Visit Scheduled with Raiders

The Ndamukong Suh free-agency tour just keeps on rollin'.

Recently, Suh met with the Los Angeles Rams, and he is intrigued by the idea of playing for them, according to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports.

Schultz reported Suh's interest comes from potentially playing alongside Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers.

The defensive lineman still has another meeting set up with the Oakland Raiders and new head coach Jon Gruden for Wednesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Going to Oakland would also offer another intriguing front seven.

There's no Donald, but there's Mario Edwards Jr., Eddie Vanderdoes and that guy Khalil Mack.

Both teams have a fair amount of cap space to lure Suh, but don't count out the Tennessee Titans—a team Suh met with earlier on his tour—just yet.

Whatever happens, the team that lands Suh is going to get markedly better on the defensive side of the ball.
