Under 12 hours until the start of free agency in the NFL.

Here are a few stories floating around.

Browns may be looking for new quarterback(s)

According to Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Browns are checking out quarterback options around the league.

According to a league source with knowledge of the situation, the Browns are discussing quarterbacks "on different levels." It appears the Browns have concluded they are more apt to upgrade the quarterback position through trade rather than free agency.    

Brodie Croyle? Nah....

Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post says there's no one in the Browns front office that believes Brady Quinn is the answer, short or long-term.

It's been widely reported that the Browns are expected to dump Derek Anderson because of a hefty bonus due in the middle of March.

Brandon Marshall could be on the move

Marshall, who was offered a first round tender, could generate interest around the league. The teams most likely to make a move, I think, are the ones at the bottom of the first round.  According to Chuck Ludwig of, Marshall could be on the Bengals radar.

The Bengals desperately need wide receiver help, and Marshall could be on their radar after the Broncos tendered him at only a first-round level on Wednesday.    

The Ravens are another team that has oft been connected to Marshall. They also pick towards the bottom of the first round.

Jets to re-sign Thomas Jones?

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Jets are expected to attempt to re-sign RB Thomas Jones come free agency.

Jones will be released because of a hefty roster bonus due.

I've previously expressed interest in Jones coming to the Chiefs since they've been looking for a big back.
