New, comments

LeCharles Bentley signs with the Browns, shafting Philly. That's good news because I definitely didn't want to see Bentley playing with the Eagles next year. The Browns also signed former Falcon OT Kevin Shaffer.

K.C. Johnson, of the Chicago Tribune, reports the Chicago Bears zeroed in on their No. 1 free agent target when they contacted the agent for free agent WR Antwaan Randle El (Steelers) and discussed at length a long-term deal for Randle El. Bears general manager Jerry Angelo and the Bears, in contact with agent Fletcher Smith as soon as the market opened, were seeking to avoid a protracted bidding war with teams that included the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins. The two sides are discussing a deal of five or six years, believed to be valued in excess of $20 million. "We still have a ways to go, but I'm optimistic," Smith said. "We'll have to wait and see, but I think we all know where the range is."
