The 2013 NFL free agency period continues to move at a blistering pace and that figures to continue as a number of players have set up free agent visits.
Many teams are still trying to plug holes from last season while a few other teams have scheduled visits following the departure of one of their own free agents. The Oakland Raiders are among those teams as a day after they lost Desmond Bryant to the Cleveland Browns, Oakland is hosting Cincinnati defensive tackle Pat Sims.
Sims isn't the only player visiting Oakland as Chicago linebacker Nick Roach is also expected to visit the Raiders. According to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times several other teams are interested in Roach. Fellow free agent linebacker Rey Maualuga also as a visit lined up as he is in Arizona visiting the Cardinals.
The market for cornerbacks has been slow to develop, but former Steeler Keenan Lewis and former Charger Antoine Cason took visits on Wednesday. Lewis visited the New Orleans Saints while Cason visited Arizona. Like cornerbacks, a market is also developing for offensive linemen. Redskins right tackle Tyler Polumbus is scheduled to visit the Jaguars on Thursday. The Redskins may already have his replacement lined up should he depart as Washington will host offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood this weekend.
The Miami Dolphins continue to be active in free agency. They are hosting tight end Dustin Keller on Wednesday and could be nearing a deal. According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald Keller underwent a physical during his visit and the two sides could begin discussing contract terms soon. Offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie tweeted he is on the way to Miami although it's unclear if the Miami product is visiting the Dolphins.
