NFL Trade Rumors-Free Agent Signings: McNabb Holmes and More



As of today, here is the latest in what promises to be a frantic few days in the NFL. Will Donovan McNabb end up on the Minnesota Vikings? Who is going where? Will Brett Favre come back…again? Will the Chicago Bears get a wide receiver? This Sportsbank posts the basics so you can be the king of your water cooler.

So let the free agent frenzy begin. Here is the latest from the NFL…

Santonio Holmes agreed to terms on a five-year deal with the Jets after being rumored to be going to the Washington Redskins.

The Carolina Panthers have signed running back DeAngelo Williams to a five-year, $43-million deal that features $21 million in guaranteed money after reports he’d sign with the Denver Broncos to be reunited with former coach John Fox.

Safety Eric Weddle has decided to return to the San Diego Chargers signing a five-year, $40 million deal with $19 million of it guaranteed. Weddle had 96 tackles and two interceptions last season.

With Kerry Collins retiring and rookie QB Jake Locker needing time to learn the NFL style of play, the Tennessee Titans signed 35-year-old Matt Hasselbeck to a three year, $21 Million Deal . This is even better news for fantasy football owners of wide receiver Kenny Britt, who could have a monster year with a reliable QB hurling his way.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Cardinals continue to discuss a trade for quarterback Kevin Kolb, and our guess, like every expert in football, will be that this happens soon. Arizona cornerback Domonique Rodgers-Cromartie and a second-round pick are rumored to be in the deal.

The Vikings and Redskins have reportedly agreed on a deal that sends quarterback Donovan McNabb to Minnesota for a late round draft pick. McNabb could revive his career in Minnesota, especially if the Vikings re-sign WR Sidney Rice.

New Orleans Saints WR Lance Moore has reportedly signed a 5-year deal to return to the team.

The Houston Texans have just agreed to terms with backup QB Matt Leinart. He was rumored to be signing with the Seattle Seahawks.

Giants free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw is believed to being pursued heavily by the Giants but could be an option for the 49ers if Frank Gore holds out.

The Miami Dolphins will likely heavily pursue FA QB Vince Young.

Miami Dolphins DL Tony McDaniel has agreed to terms on a two-year deal to stay with the team.

QB Tyler Thigpen has agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the Buffalo Bills. Thigpen will serve as Buffalo’s No. 2 QB to starter Ryan Fitzpatrick

Rumors of Brett Favre coming out of retirement AGAIN are just rumors, so expect him to sign with an NFL team soon. Hah hah hah.
