Free agent receiver Mario Manningham, who helped the Giants win Super Bowl XLVI, is visiting the team Monday to discuss a possible reunion, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Knee injuries limited Manningham to 18 games over the past two seasons with the 49ers.
The Broncos signed free agent receiver Emmanuel Sanders in part because of his versatility, general manager John Elway told the Denver Post. "He can play anywhere," Elway said. "He can play inside, he can be outside. He's explosive. Great separation skills. He can do it all."
Sanders joins Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker and Julius Thomas to give Peyton Manning four high-end targets.
Free agent defensive end Robert Ayers will visit the Bengals on Tuesday, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Ayers had 5.5 sacks with the Broncos last season and is a potential replacement for Michael Johnson, who signed with the Buccaneers.
Free agent Bryant McKinnie, who started the final 10 games at left tackle for the Dolphins last season, said he's willing to play right tackle next year, either for Miami or another team. McKinnie turns 35 in September. Playing right tackle would give him his best chance of starting in 2014.
"It shouldn't be too hard," McKinnie told WQAM, per the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel. "I have done it in practice a few times. It shouldn't be too much of a transition."
The Dolphins brought in Branden Albert to play left tackle.
Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, who's been the subject of trade speculation, "is unsure about his standing on the team and troubled by what is being written about him," reports Birds 24/7. "He has reached out to some of his teammates to express his concern. One of Jackson’s top confidants says that the whole situation has become 'a bit of a distraction.'"
Jackson is coming off his best season: 82 catches, 1,332 yards, nine touchdowns. But as of Saturday, the Eagles had not contacted Jackson to reassure him he's not going anywhere, the report said.
