With the free agency signing period in the NFL opening at 11:01 p.m. Thursday, reports have put the Washington Redskins as the front-runner to sign Tennessee Titans defensive tackle and unrestricted free agent Albert Haynesworth.
ESPN bloggers are reporting that the Baltimore Ravens are leaning toward a new deal for linebacker Bart Scott, which could mean Ray Lewis won't be re-signed.

Cowboys defensive end Chris Canty is rated as the sixth-best free agent by SI.com in conversations with scouts and game-tape evaluations.

Bengals free agent receiver T.J. Houshmanxzadeh could be an Eagles target.
