-- J.J. Taylor of the Dallas Morning News says the Cowboys have spoken to C Kevin Mawae's agent. He also says the team has shown interest in Patriots OG Steve Neal and Lions OL Kyle Kozier.

Dallas was also negotiating with C/G Andre Gurode and OLB Scott Fujita Friday night.

-- The Saints are the early leaders in the Drew Brees sweepstakes. The Saints will host Brees Saturday. He will visit Miami Sunday. New Orleans is offering more guaranteed money than the Dolphins or the Detroit Lions, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

The same article claims that Saints will pursue TE Dan Campbell.

-- The Miami Herald puts strong odds on Brees signing with New Orleans and says the Dolphins are working hard to complete a trade for Duante Culpepper.

-- The Panthers are putting the hard sell on Ravens DT Ma'ake Kemoeatu, hoping to get his signature before teams like the Browns get to make their pitch.

-- Has LeCharles Bentley already signed? If you believe Chargers' GM A.J. Smith, he has. Bentley apparently turned down an offer to visit San Diego to close a deal.

Update: the Philadelphia Inquirer puts Bentley in Philly this morning. The Eagles are apparently offering a huge deal, with a $10 to 12 million signing bonus.

-- The Giants will host LB LaVar Arrington Sunday. His agent Carl Poston claims Arrington has received calls from at least a dozen teams.

-- The Redskins have contacted the agent for TE Dan Campbell. No word on whether a visit has been scheduled.

-- The Dolphins have scheduled a Saturday visit with WR David Givens, (apparently not a Brown, as one report stated earlier this evening).

-- The Jets have scheduled Saturday visits with Pats OT Tom Ashworth and LB Matt Chatham.
