Running Back

RB | Jerome Harrison | Philadelphia Eagles | Free Agents
The Philadelphia Eagles may look for a backup running back this offseason if impending free-agent RB Jerome Harrison leaves for free agency.

RB | Garrett Wolfe | Chicago Bears | Free Agents
Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Garrett Wolfe will not be facing felony charges stemming from an arrest last month for allegedly refusing to pay a bar tab because authorities have decided not to file any felony charges. Wolfe faces a level-one misdemeanor for resisting arrest without violence.

Wide Receiver

WR | Sidney Rice | Minnesota Vikings | Free Agents, Fantasy
Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent WR Sidney Rice is expected to receive incentive-laden or escalator-laden offers during free agency because of his injury history.

WR | Dez Bryant | Dallas Cowboys | Fantasy
Dallas Cowboys LB DeMarcus Ware said that WR Dez Bryant has been working on improving his play during player-organized workouts and that he expects Bryant to have a very good year this season. "All the things he's done off the field or whatever, he's out there trying to do better," Ware said. "He's at the OTA sessions getting balls from Romo, getting closer with Romo, figuring each other out. He was running routes a month ago, and it was not a problem like the injury didn't hurt him. I think he's going to be a great asset next season."

WR | Plaxico Burress | Free Agent | Free Agents
The Pittsburgh Steelers signing free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Giants) appears more likely than signing free-agent RB Tiki Barber (Giants) once free agency begins.

Offensive Tackle

OT | Jermon Bushrod | New Orleans Saints | Free Agents
New Orleans Saints impending free-agent OT Jermon Bushrod said he would like to re-sign with the Saints but is not sure what will happen once free agency begins. Bushrod said he would love to receive a long-term contract this offseason. He has been taking part in the Saints' player-organized workouts during the lockout.

Defensive Line

DL | Ray McDonald | San Francisco 49ers | Free Agents
San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent DE Ray McDonald said he will be looking to sign with a team that will make him a starter because he believes he is an every-down player. The 49ers may need a starter at left defensive end if they move DE Issac Sopoaga to nose tackle.

DL | Aubrayo Franklin | San Francisco 49ers | Free Agents
The San Francisco 49ers are prepared to lose impending free-agent DT Aubrayo Franklin once free agency begins because he is expected to sign with this highest bidder.


LB | Manny Lawson | San Francisco 49ers | Free Agents
San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent LB Manny Lawson likely will not re-sign with the team if he is declared an unrestricted free agent because the team took LB Aldon Smith in the the 2011 NFL Draft.


CB | Ike Taylor | Pittsburgh Steelers | Free Agents
The Washington Redskins may show interest in Pittsburgh Steelers impending free-agent CB Ike Taylor once free agency begins.

CB | Corey Graham | Chicago Bears | Free Agents

He was forced to miss 10 games over the past two seasons due to neck problems. "I'm still not 100 percent (healthy)," Reed said. "But I'm 100 percent mentally at this point as far as everything I can do. I know my limitations. I still have a lot of work to do before the season starts.
