FA Rumors: Osweiler, Sean Smith, Adam Jones

The latest rumors on a slew of free agents-to-be:

  • The Broncos have offered quarterback Brock Osweiler a three-year contract worth ~$39MM, according to Troy Renck of The Denver Post. That runs a bit contrary to a weekend report that stated the Broncos had offered $45MM for three years.
  • Seven teams have expressed interest in Jets running back Chris Ivory, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News (Twitter link). The Buccaneers and Raiders are among those clubs, per a report from earlier tonight.
  • The Raiders “have reached out” to Chiefs corner Sean Smith‘s camp, per Scott Bair CSNBayArea.com (Twitter link). Smith is the fourth high-profile pending free agent whom the Raiders have been connected to today, joining Ivory, Malik Jackson and Kelechi Osemele (links to Jackson and Osemele stories: 1, 2).
  • Bengals veteran corner Adam Jones has several potential suitors, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, who lists the Ravens, Browns, Dolphins, Raiders, Cowboys and Vikings as teams that could end up with the 32-year-old. The Bengals would like to retain Jones, per Florio.
  • The Bears are expected to go after Patriots defensive lineman Akiem Hicks, writes Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Bears general manager Ryan Pace and player personnel director Josh Lucas were in the Saints’ front office when they drafted Hicks in 2012, Biggs notes.
  • The Giants, Eagles, Dolphins and Bears are interested in Chargers corner Patrick Robinson, reports ESPN’s Josina Anderson (Twitter link).

    If my beloved Raiders can land Sean Smith, Malik Jackson, Kelechi Osemele and Chris Ivory they will instantly become not only a serious playoff candidate but a potential Super Bowl contender! Laugh if you will you tired, bitter, antiquated old Raider-Haters, but this team is already well on the way to viability with their existing roster; adding the players mentioned in this article should silence you doubters for years to come!

    Raider-bashing is no longer in vogue! “The times they are a’changin'” and changing FAST!!

    Can’t WAIT for Wednesday!!

      As a fellow Raider fan, I understand the excitement, but I don’t want McKenzie to go overboard. At this time next year, Mack and Carr are going to be up, and so they should be a little bit cautious, but one of Smith or Jackson and Rodney McLeod would be a great offseason IMO
