Day three of free agency has been a bit more quiet, but there's enough happening, and enough discussion, that I figured why not create a second live blog thread? We don't have as much news for you at this point, but we'll keep an eye out.
The big news outside of San Francisco is Connor Barwin signing with the Eagles for a deal reported to be six years and $36 million. Not too shabby as the Eagles look to fill out their 3-4 defense. According to Jeff McLane, the deal only includes $8 million guaranteed in the first two years. As with so many NFL contracts, it's all about the details.
The Patriots signed Leon Washington, per Leon Washington's Twitter account. He will work as a return man and a change of pace option in that backfield. I think that's a pretty solid signing for the Patriots. Low key, but valuable.
Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings is meeting with the Minnesota Vikings on Friday. The Vikings brought back Jerome Simpson, but otherwise are slim on wide receivers. Jennings is talented, but will he leave Aaron Rodgers for Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel? Seriously?
