Updating a previous report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers do not have any interest in free-agent RB Tiki Barber (Giants) because they do not believe he fit into their team at this point.

Wide Receiver

WR | Plaxico Burress | Free Agent | Free Agents
Free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Giants) said via Twitter he would sign with the Philadelphia Eagles at the start of free agency as long as the team is willing to sign him.

WR | Austin Collie | Indianapolis Colts | Fantasy
Indianapolis Colts WR Austin Collie said during a radio interview that he is trying not to think about the concussions he suffered last season because he believes it would affect his play if he dwells on it too much. "You don't want things like that popping up in your mind. I try to ignore any thought I do have of it. I don't want to watch it. People want to show me and ask how I felt during that time and whatnot. I just kind of brush it aside because it is one of those things that it is in the past and it's unfortunate. I was unlucky, but I'm just looking forward to this next season and getting on with it," Collie said.

Tight End

TE | Zach Miller | Oakland Raiders | Free Agents
A top priority for the Oakland Raiders following a new labor deal will be to bring back impending free-agent TE Zach Miller. Miller may be an unrestricted free agent depending on the rules. Or he could be retained with a first- and third-round tender applied before the lockout. The chances of the team bringing Miller back are considered very good.


OG | Marshal Yanda | Baltimore Ravens | Free Agents
Baltimore Ravens impending free-agent OG Marshal Yanda's agent said that Yanda is willing to return to the team once the lockout is over because Baltimore has been a good fit for Yanda.

Defensive Line

DL | Stephen Bowen | Dallas Cowboys | Free Agents
The Dallas Cowboys may not be able to re-sign impending free-agent DE Stephen Bowen if he is categorized as an unrestricted free agent because he could receive a good amount of money in the open market.


CB | Nnamdi Asomugha | Oakland Raiders | Free Agents
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could pursue Oakland Raiders impending free-agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha once free agency begins because they can offer him a big contract since they did not have a big payroll in 2010 and the new collective bargaining agreement could have a higher salary cap floor.

Free Safety

FS | Michael Huff | Oakland Raiders | Free Agents
The chances of the Oakland Raiders bringing back impending free-agent FS Michael Huff are estimated at 35 to 40 percent. Some team will likely offer Huff more than the Raiders are prepared to pay.
