This may be why we are seeing a few new contracts being signed with existing free agents. Maybe Ireland didn't want to take a chance on other teams even having a chance to speak with Moore and Hartline's agents.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100000 ... -questions

Q. What is permitted during the new three-day negotiating period prior to the start of free agency?

A. Beginning at midnight ET on Saturday, March 9 (i.e., after 11:59:59 p.m. ET, on Friday, March 8) and ending at 3:59:59 p.m. ET on Tuesday, March 12, clubs are permitted to contact, and enter into negotiations with, the certified agents of players who will become Unrestricted Free Agents upon the expiration of their 2012 Player Contracts at 4 p.m. ET on March 12. However, a contract cannot be executed with a new club until 4 p.m. ET on March 12.

During this negotiation period, a prospective Unrestricted Free Agent cannot visit a club (other than the player's current club) at its permanent facility or at any other location, and no direct contact is permitted between the player and any employee or representative of a club (other than the player's current club). If a player is self-represented, clubs are prohibited from discussions with the player during the negotiating period.

Clubs (other than the player's current club) may not discuss or make any travel arrangements with prospective Unrestricted Free Agent players, their certified agents, or anyone else associated with the player until the expiration of those players' 2012 Player Contracts at 4 p.m. ET on March 12.

The three-day negotiating period applies only to potential Unrestricted Free Agents; it does not apply to players who are potential Exclusive Rights Players or Restricted Free Agents, or to players who have been designated as Franchise Players or Transition Players.

The Miami Herald reports "between three and five teams" have contacted free agent CB Sean Smith since midnight Saturday.
So, four. We kid. The Eagles and Chiefs are believed to be two of the teams, and the 49ers, Buccaneers, and Lions have been previously rumored as having some level of interest. Smith's market ought to heat up a bit on Saturday.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero was told the Patriots are interested in free agent Mike Wallace.

The Broncos hosted Dunta Robinson for a free-agent visit on Friday before he signed with Kansas City.
It's an indication Denver is in the market for veteran cornerbacks. Chris Gamble would be a more-than-adequate backup plan, as he's better than Robinson in coverage and has ties to Broncos coach John Fox from their Carolina days.

The Nashville Tennessean's Jim Wyatt believes it's "even money" Titans GM Ruston Webster's first call at midnight Saturday was to the player rep for free agent OG Andy Levitre.
It certainly sounds like Levitre is the Titans' top free-agent target. Annually desperate for interior offensive line help, Tennessee could shore up a weakness by replacing Steve Hutchinson at left guard with Levitre. It's a bit surprising that Hutchinson and overpaid C Eugene Amano haven't been released yet.

According to the Indianapolis Star, Colts coach Chuck Pagano was a "big fan" of free agent CB Cary Williams when Pagano was on Baltimore's staff.
Pagano coached Baltimore's secondary from 2008-2010 and coordinated the defense in 2011. Williams was roasted in coverage too much for our liking last season, but we can see the appeal because he's under 30 and blessed with ideal cornerback size. The Colts certainly have the salary cap space to land Williams.
