Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle writes that there’s a “good chance” OLB Philip Wheeler departs in the coming days.
Ian Rapoport reported earlier in the day that Oakland wants to retain Wheeler and could see something getting done.
Wheeler, 28, played great for a bad defense and deserved a pay raise, so I wish him the best this offseason.
We have him listed as the No. 22 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
Jason Cole Yahoo Sports reports that the Patriots, 49ers, Eagles, Seahawks, and Jaguars all have interest in free agent DL Desmond Bryant.
You could probably add the Browns to that list as well given that they have plenty of cap space and seen to have checked in on everyone thus far.
