Seahawks could bring back Sidney Rice
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Seahawks could be interested in bringing back free agent receiver Sidney Rice, reports the Everett Herald.

The Seahawks released Rice in a salary-cap move earlier this offseason. He is recovering from a torn ACL, but he was cleared for football activities Monday.

Other teams that could show interest in Rice include the Saints, Panthers and Giants, although ESPN reports the Giants aren't expected to make a serious run for his services. If Rice is available on a low-cost, short-term deal, he would make a ton of sense for Seattle, which lost Golden Tate as a free agent this offseason to the Lions.

No end in sight to Jimmy Graham standoff with Saints?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Franchised player Jimmy Graham has until April 22 to file a grievance against the Saints for tagging him as a tight end. He and his representatives have said they believe he's more of a wide receiver than a tight end based on where he lines up and what he's asked to do. The Saints insist he's a tight end. 

It was initially believed by ProFootballTalk.com that the Saints and Graham would agree to terms before the deadline for a grievance arrived. But general manager Mickey Loomis said the team doesn't view April 22 as a deadline to get a deal done. The Saints have until July 15 to sign Graham to a multi-year deal; if they don't then he can only sign the one-year franchise tender. 

Graham had 86 catches for 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns last year.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

New Saints acquisition Champ Bailey will play cornerback, general manager Mickey Loomis told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "You always have a need for good players, and that's a valuable position," Loomis said.

Bailey reportedly was willing to move to safety if asked.
