The Skins still have no free agent visits planned, and it's pretty quiet beyond checking in with the agents for their own free agents, monitoring the market and holding internal discussions about possibilities on the trade or free agent market.
Very strange for the first daty of free agency to include just a few media schlubs hanging around The Park, with no buzz and no slew of players being paraded around. Refreshing actually. Guard Jason Fabini is drawing significant interest from Miami - he has long ties to Parcells - while Jacksonville has interest in Skins free agents Randall Godfrey and Pierson Prioleau.
As for other news, and for those of you watching the dwindling DT market: Jacksonville likely looking for a deal similar to the Kris Jenkins deal for Marcus Stroud (two picks). The Jags are also talking to Drayton Florence, who drew heavy interest from Detroit as well ... Looks very good for former Skins RB Coach Earnest Byner to get the same position with the Titans (a position vacated when Sherman Smith left there to become the OC here). Expect to see that finalized next week, sources said ... Should that not materialize, Seattle may still be a possibility. The Seahawks are trying to convince longtime fullback Mack Strong to retire and take the RB coach job there, sources said - a position that opened up when Stump Mitchell left to become the RB coach here. Strong is mulling the option, but may still want to play (though the Seahaks are very high on young FB Leonard Weaver, a restricted free agent, who they see as a quality starter). Should he turn it down, and Byner still be on the market, he would be a strong option there as well, sources said.
