Cheta Ozougwu DL CHI 3 Days
Bears waived DE Cheta Ozougwu.
Ozougwu, 25, appeared in seven games last season, notching five tackles and one sack. He faced long odds of making the 53-man roster after the Bears added Lamarr Houston, Jared Allen, and Israel Idonije in free agency.
Allen Reisner TE MIN 3 Days
Vikings signed TE Allen Reisner, formerly of the Jaguars.
Reisner signed with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2011 before being waived ahead of last season and spending the year with the Jaguars. He caught five passes for 50 yards in five games. Reisner will compete for a roster spot.
Matt Flynn QB GB 3 Days
Packers re-signed QB Matt Flynn.
And we now know why Flynn didn't make his previously reported visit to work out for the Giants on Tuesday. Flynn made five appearances (four starts) last season and completed 61.4 percent of his passes for 1,146 yards, seven touchdowns, and four interceptions. He also took a whopping 17 sacks and lost four fumbles. Flynn will have a leg up on Scott Tolzien for No. 2 duties.
Malcom Floyd WR SD 3 Days
Malcom Floyd (neck) will attend voluntary workouts next week.
Floyd has been running and lifting weights for a couple months now and hopes to play this season, though that's still to be determined. Getting back on the field in shorts and shells is a good first step toward a return to the field. The Chargers could really use his vertical playmaking presence opposite Keenan Allen.
Matt Flynn QB GB 3 Days
Updating a previous item, free agent QB Matt Flynn will not work out for the Giants on Tuesday.
It was previously reported that Flynn was going to join fellow free agent Josh Freeman in the Meadowlands on Tuesday, but Flynn is not taking part for unknown reasons. There may have never been a visit scheduled in the first place. Flynn's best bet is to return to Green Bay on a minimum deal.
Brandon Lloyd WR SF 3 Days
49ers signed WR Brandon Lloyd to a one-year contract.
Lloyd's name surfaced again last week after he hadn't been in the news since September. He was released by the Patriots in a salary-slashing move last offseason and spent the 2013 season on the street. The soon-to-be 33-year-old was described as a bit of a locker-room lawyer in New England then went on to "star" in a direct-to-DVD zombie movie during his time away from the game. Lloyd will compete for a roster spot behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin.
Daniel Kilgore SF 3 Days
49ers C Daniel Kilgore had the public intoxication charges against him dismissed last week.
Kilgore was booked in January after he was "staggering down a sidewalk" in his hometown in Tennessee. The 49ers didn't seem too concerned and inked him to a three-year contract extension in late February. Kilgore is fully expected to be given every opportunity to replace Jonathan Goodwin at center.
Sam Barrington LB GB 3 Days
The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports the Packers "like the prospects" of second-year ILB Sam Barrington.
Barrington was the 232nd overall pick in last April's draft and played just one snap on defense before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring injury in November. We can't see the Packers liking him enough to start, however. He ran a 4.91 at the Combine and is just 6-foot-1 and 235 pounds.
Graham Harrell QB NYJ 3 Days
Free agent QB Graham Harrell has accepted a position on the Washington State coaching staff.
Harrell played for current Cougars coach Mike Leach at Texas Tech from 2004-2008. Harrell attempted four passes for the Packers in 2012 and signed with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2009. He was cut by Green Bay last August and latched on with the Jets before being apart of final cuts.
Sidney Rice WR SEA 3 Days
ESPN Panthers reporter David Newton considers free agent Sidney Rice a "long shot" to sign in Carolina.
Rice would be a good fit with the Panthers and shouldn't be expensive, but Carolina has next to no money to spend and doesn't have a lot of ways to create more cap space. The Seahawks have over $15 million in cap room and would be our guess for Rice's landing spot on an incentive-based, one-year deal.
