Lots of rumors flying around and a couple of minor re-signings.

News so far this week has revolved around veteran releases -- Dan Connor, James Anderson, Quintin Mikell, etc -- but the news should come fast and furious shortly.

Separate threads are welcome, but I figured we could use this one as a catch-all thread. I'll try to keep the first post updated with major signings through the first wave and beyond.

Dolphins agreed to terms with LB Dannell Ellerbe, formerly of the Ravens, on a five-year, $35 million contract.

Dolphins released LB Karlos Dansby.

Colts signed OLB Erik Walden to a four-year, $16 million contract.

27-year-old Walden is an outside pass rusher who managed nine sacks in Green Bay over the past three seasons. Walden was told the club gave him "every expectation" he'll be the 2013 starter opposite Robert Mathis.

Colts signed DE/OLB Lawrence Sidbury, formerly of the Falcons

Colts agreed to terms with CB Greg Toler, formerly of the Cardinals

Panthers will release LB James Anderson.

Coach Doug Marrone confirmed that Leodis McKelvin will compete for the starting left cornerback job

Broncos released LB D.J. Williams.

One NFL agent told the Denver Post that the Chiefs indeed plan to use Dunta Robinson at safety.

It's believed Robinson signed a three-year, $15 million contract

I'm not sure any of this makes full sense yet.Might be some schematic changes in Miami. Burnett and Ellerbe are a lot alike. Neither are true thumping ILBs, neither have great athleticism in coverage right now. Wondering if we'll see Coyle transition to a 3-4 Under and use Wake in an Elephant role. Or if the Dolphins think they can groom a base defensive MLB/SILB type from this year's draft.

And Walden? Ugh.

Jene what is your take on Kruger to the Browns? Do you think he can repeat the 2nd half of this season without having Suggs lined up on the other side?

Looks like the draft as Burnett released.

Patrick Chung to the Eagles.
What do we make of this?
If (big if) Chung stays healthy, I view him easily as a top 10 DB. Eagles have always been a good spot for safety production.
Different defensive scheme this year though.If, as is being opined, the Eagles go to a Seattle-esque 3-4 Under front is Chung the "Kam Chancellor" or the "Earl Thomas?"

Would be the Chancellor role. Chung has never developed in coverage. Durability and angles in run defense are the concerns. If he's successful -- and the Eagles linebackers struggle -- he could be a DB2+ again. Not sure I'd rush out to get him, but it's worth following in OTAs.

As a Dynasty Owner of Nigel Bradham LB I'm intrigued by the signing of Lawson. Jene what does this mean for Bradham and Lawson as the Bills go to a 3-4 Def???? I thought I've read a few spots that ideally Bradham would play the WILB spot in a 3-4 with Sheppard on the other ILB spot. How do you see it.??? :confused:

Don't see Lawson playing inside. I think we'll see him be the base SOLB/SLB in Pettine's multiple front scheme. Not quite Paul Kruger, not quite Adalius Thomas, not quite Courtney Upshaw, definitely not Von Miller. Should be okay setting the edge and in coverage on early downs. Could have a subpackage role, too.
