NFL Free agency signings, cuts, & rumors tracker: Day 3

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

It's day three, boys and girls. Over the past few days, I've put together a list of all the major moves in NFL free agency for the 2013 season thus far - keep in mind it's an extensive but not exhaustive list, because holy crap there have been a lot of moves - so if I've missed things, hit me up. I'll be updating this throughout the day, and we'll see if things get crazy again.

UPDATES:

DAY THREE

-- Leon Washington signs with the Patriots. Seems like a great fit for Leon, likely taking over the Danny Woodhead role -- wish him nothing but the best!

-- OLB Connor Barwin signed with the Eagles. Another OLB off the board - meaning some of the vets like Osi and Abraham will likely start coming off the table as well.

-- Former Rams' RB Steven Jackson signs with the Falcons. Great signing for them, and he'll be the 'bell cow' there for them and Quizz will be the change of pace. The rich just got richer. That offense is obscene.

-- Former Niners' DT Ricky Jean-Francois signed with the Colts. Another loss for San Francisco, but it was more or less evened out by their decision to sign Glenn Dorsey. It should be interesting to find out which player is actually better in that Niner defense because they're both talented players.

-- CB Sean Smith signed in Kansas City. I don't know a ton about Smith, but I tend to think I'm glad he's in the AFC.

-- LB Keith Rivers re-signed with the Giants. I had thought that the former first-rounder out of USC might've drawn some interest from the Seahawks, who are looking for a WLB, but I didn't see anything on that front.

-- S Kenny Phillips and CB Carey Williams sign with Eagles.

-- RB Darius Reynaud re-signed with the Titans

-- The Cardinals are making some noise; the Seahawks' NFC West rivals signed three players - LB Lorenzo Alexander, QB Drew Stanton & CB Jerraud Powers - and released S Kerry Rhodes. They're also on the verge of releasing Kevin Kolb, from multiple reports.

-- Nnamdi Asomugha is scheduled to visit the 49ers, so keep an eye on that.

-- Matt Cassell was released by the Chiefs. It should be interesting to see if Cassell and Kolb's releases do anything to Matt Flynn's potential market. Not a lot of noise on that front quite yet, so there may not be much interest.

**********

DAY ONE & TWO:

-- Wes Welker signs with the Broncos. Wow.

-- RB Shonn Greene and a DT I would have liked the Seahawks go after, Sammie Lee Hill, signed with the Titans. The Titans spent a lot of money today.

-- The Niners signed DT Glen Dorsey, formerly of the Chiefs. Good pickup, in my opinion. He'll play multiple spots on their line, spelling Justin Smith and Ray McDonald, and will likely come in on passing downs and nickel situations.

-- The Buccaneers have signed former 49ers All-Pro safety, Dashon Goldson. This is a big hit to the Niners' defense.

-- Former Texans' S Glover Quin has signed with the Lions.

-- Former Steelers RB and first-round pick Rashard Mendenhall signed with the Cardinals.

-- CBs Coye Francies and Phillip Adams both re-signed with the Raiders on Tuesday. Both players were with the Seahawks in training camp last season, then released at final cuts.

-- The Bears have no released another TE in Matt Spaeth. The 6'7, 260 pound veteran isn't known much for his pass-catching ability, but is a very strong blocker, so don't be surprised to see Tom Cable the Seahawks kick the tires on the 29-year old.

-- Seahawks free agent DT Jason Jones has signed a three-year deal with the Lions. This is a bit of a bummer for Seattle because Jones really added a nice pass rush element to their nickel packages, but I would imagine Seattle balked at offering him a three-year deal with evidently major concerns over his knee injury.

-- The Rams made a nice pickup in TE Jared Cook on Tuesday, adding the young and explosive pass-catching threat to their offense. Not cool.

-- The Lions and Reggie Bush have reportedly reached an agreement on a four-year deal. The Lions are signing everyone, but the important thing here is that Reggie Bush is not going to the Cardinals - one of his rumored destinations.

-- Former Seahawks LB Will Herring was released by the Saints. Not sure they'd have any interest in re-signing him at this point, but Herring was a solid special teams player and nickel package contributor.

-- Former Seahawks K Josh Brown signed a deal with the Giants.

-- Former Niners' DT Isaac Sopoaga signed with the Eagles. Good move by them.

-- Raiders WR Darrius Heyward-Bey was released last night so while the Seahawks do seem set at wide receiver, he makes a pretty prototypical X-WR deep threat on the outside. Will be worth watching to see if the Seahawks show any interest. Likewise, The Bears released 6'7, 265 lb TE Kellen Davis, and while he struggled with drops this season, is a freak of nature athletically and is still young at only 27. Might be worth a look as TE depth for a number of teams.
