At least seven teams are interested in Vonta Leach, the biggest free agent on the market. The Phinsider reports on Leach's first and only visit so far to South Florida. The Texans (his top choice), Chiefs, Giants and Browns are also said to be interested. Dawgs By Nature takes a deeper look at Leach as a player.

Terrell Owens thinks he's a fit in Minnesota or Kansas City. T.O. said on NFL Network that those two teams seem to be good fits for him. Here is Daily Norseman's reaction: "I think I can pretty confidently state that there is no chance of this actually happening." Arrowhead Pride shares Andy Reid's reaction:

Former Ram Craig Dahl says the 49ers were tipping plays last year. So how did the Rams, of all teams, compete with the 49ers last year, beating them once and tying them in another game? According to Craig Dahl, who was with the Rams last year and signed with the 49ers this year, the 49ers were tipping plays. Credit to Niners Nation who noticed this possibility after the game last year and wrote about it with the all-22 tape. Turf Show Times chronicles Cortland Finnegan's response to this whole thing, which is hilarious.

The best QB in Oakland on Wednesday was Terrelle Pryor. Silver and Black Pride reports from the practice field: "The best looking quarterback today was Terrelle Pryor. He had the best pass of the day on a 60-yard touchdown bomb to Andre Holmes and later threw on a rope across the middle. He had another ball batted at the line for his fifth in two days, although the good news is that was the only batted ball of the day for any quarterback."

Warren Sapp calls the Steelers old again. Behind The Steel Curtain notes that this is the third year Sapp has said this. They also note that the Steelers defense has "allowed 16 points a game over the last two years and has been in the top three in the NFL in rushing and passing yards in that time."

Former top-ten pick David Terrell would cut off his balls to play with Jay Cutler. Mile High Report passes the quote along: ""I would have cut off both my balls," Terrell said. "I'd give those up, no problem. You could have neutered me. I woulda been neutered with a smile." Context can be found here (but even context won't help you understand David Terrell).

Jets can get creative with Geno Smith. Jets quarterbacks coach David Lee was in Miami when the Wildcat craze cropped back up in the NFL. Gang Green Nation makes a good point: "I know many will cringe at the thought of more Wildcat, but the Jets might struggle to move the ball with a conventional offense so they will have to throw in a few wrinkles to have success."

Former Jaguars coach would start Chad Henne over Blaine Gabbert. Big Cat Country sums it up here: ":I think after watching the Jaguars flail to a 2-14 season in 2012, the worst season in franchise history, everyone should probably do the complete opposite of what Mike Mularkey suggests. So, in that case... cut Chad Henne."
