RB | Brian Leonard | NFL Draft Prospect | Draft Information
John Nalbone, of the Trenton Times, reports the Philadelphia Eagles are looking at Rutgers RB Brian Leonard as a possible first day draft pick to complement RB Brian Westbrook.

WR | Randy Moss | Oakland Raiders | Fantasy

Defensive Line

DL | Ian Scott | Free Agent Players | Free Agency News
Mark Craig, of the Star Tribune, reports free-agent DT Ian Scott (Bears) left the Minnesota Vikings without a contract.

DL | Charles Grant | New Orleans Saints | Free Agency News
Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports team officials of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will meet Friday, March 16, with New Orleans Saints DE Charles Grant, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason but was given the team's franchise tag instead. Players designated with the franchise tag can still negotiate with other teams, but the original team reserves the right to match any offer the player receives or get two first-round picks as compensation for losing the player. Since the Buccaneers have the No. 4 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, the compensation for acquiring Grant would be very costly for the team.

DL | Robaire Smith | Cleveland Browns | Transaction, Free Agency News
Patrick McManamon, of the Akron Beacon Journal, reports the Cleveland Browns have signed unrestricted free-agent DL Robaire Smith (Titans) to a four-year, $12 million contract. He will line up at end and probably move inside to tackle on passing downs.
