Daryn Colledge ARI 11 Hrs
Free agent OG Daryn Colledge left his Rams visit without a contract, and will now visit the Raiders.
Colledge is best suited for a reserve role at this point in his career, but would certainly be in the mix to start in Oakland. The Raiders had some of the league's worst guard play last season.

The Rams are hosting OG Daryn Colledge for a free agent visit Wednesday night.
Colledge is 32 years old and best suited as a versatile reserve, but the Rams have a need at left guard after losing Chris Williams to Buffalo, and he'd likely start there if signed. For now, at least, St. Louis has Rodger Saffold at right guard, Joe Barksdale penciled in at right tackle, Scott Wells at center, and injured Jake Long tentatively manning Sam Bradford's blindside.

Cardinals released RG Daryn Colledge.
The Cardinals have designated Colledge as a post June 1 cut, so his $4.6 million in dead money will be spread out of the next two years. His release creates a total of $2.3 million in cap savings. Earl Watford will compete for Arizona's starting right guard job in 2014.

The Cardinals are expected to release RG Daryn Colledge.
Colledge, 32 next month, carries a 2014 cap hit of $7.275 million. The Cardinals would eat nearly $5 million in dead money by cutting him but could designate Colledge as a post-June 1 cut and split the difference between 2014 and 2015. Colledge graded out in the middle of the pack in Pro Football Focus' guard ratings. Last year's fourth-round pick G Earl Watford is expected to compete for the starting right guard job in Arizona. Jonathan Cooper will be back at left guard.

Cardinals LG Daryn Colledge was forced from Arizona's Week 7 game against the Seahawks with a back injury.
Colledge was deemed "questionable," but it doesn't appear he'll be returning. Nate Potter is now in the game at left guard. It's not good news for a team whose line has been getting overwhelmed.

Cardinals RG Daryn College (leg) returned to practice Monday.
He worked with the first-team offense in 11-on-11s. The Cardinals' O-Line is shaping up as Levi Brown and Eric Winston at the tackles, Colledge and Jonathan Cooper at guard, and Lyle Sendlein at center. Bobby Massie has been demoted to swing/tackle guard, vying for sixth-man duties with Nate Potter.

Cardinals RG Daryn Colledge (leg) will miss "another week or so."
Colledge has missed the past couple of training camp practices, and he's questionable for the preseason opener against the Packers on August 9. Colledge has a firm grip on the right guard job, but coach Bruce Arians recently praised fourth-round rookie Earl Watford's strength. He could make a move on the veteran.

Daryn Colledge has been lining up at right guard in Cardinals OTAs.
It's an indication the Cardinals plan to keep first-round pick Jonathan Cooper at his college position of left guard, even though Cooper was running with the second-team offense Tuesday. Colledge has been a left guard throughout his career, but the Cardinals must trust he can make the transition. They could just be experimenting, of course. We might not get a clear idea of how things will shake out along the Birds' line before training camp.

Cardinals LG Daryn Colledge restructured his contract in order to save the team $2.325 million in cap space.
Colledge didn't take a pay cut. He decreased his $3.8 million salary to $700K and received a $3.1 million "signing" bonus to compensate. The bonus is prorated, dropping College's 2012 cap number from $5.5 million to $3.175 million. His future cap numbers are all higher now, however. Colledge graded out as a top-eight run blocking guard by Pro Football Focus during his first season with Arizona. He struggled mightily as a pass protector.
