Here’s another indication that the Raiders will soon cut pass-rusher Kamerion Wimbley. NFL.com reports that it will be done Tuesday. Wimbley’s release has appeared to be a foregone conclusion for days; expect San Diego to be in play once he becomes free.
Matt Leinart has been cut in Houston. He could be a candidate to join the Raiders. He played in Houston under new Oakland offensive coordinator Greg Knapp. The Raiders will very likely be in the market for a backup quarterback, so it is very plausible that Leinart could back up Carson Palmer — just as he did when both were at USC.
The Chiefs gave inside linebacker Jovan Belcher a second-round tender. Thus, the restricted free agent will likely be with the team in 2012 and it could preclude Kansas City from being interested in Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly with the No. 11 pick in April's draft.
The Chargers are holding onto two key exclusive-rights free agents.
New England could be a possible landing spot for Denver free agent tight end Daniel Fells.
