The Denver Broncos are continuing the reforming of their defensive line, signing defensive tackle Sam Adams on Monday. Adams, who weighs a massive 350 pounds, was with the Cincinnati Bengals last season. Adams started all 16 games with the Bengals last year, and recorded 25 tackles. Adams will try to help with the disbanding of the "Cleveland Browns" on the Broncos philosophy. Although the defense drew praise from many at first, I never believed that guys like Courtney Brown or Gerard Warren were responsible for those efforts. When it came to crunch time, when were they ever able to make a significant play?

The Pittsburgh Steelers decided to re-sign veteran running back Verron Haynes to a one-year deal. Haynes played in seven games for the Steelers last season before injuring his knee, resulting in the end of his season. Haynes was then cut by the team in March. It is expected that he will compete for the role as the team's third down running back with Najeh Davenport and Kevin Barlow. Haynes may not have the same relationship with head coach Mike Tomlin as he did with Bill Cowher, meaning there's a legitimate chance that he could eventually end up being released again. Davenport would be the right man for the role based on history, in my opinion.

New Orleans Saints rookie wide receiver Robert Meachem had arthroscopic surgery on his knee and is expected to be out for 3-4 weeks. Although he should make a full recovery, the Saints would have preferred to have had their group of receivers healthy right away after the departure of veteran receiver Joe Horn.

The Arizona Cardinals released defensive tackle Kendrick Clancy, offensive guard Milford Brown, and fullback Obafemi Ayanbadejo. Although all three players made contributions to the team, they were no longer needed under the team's new coaching staff. Of the three, Clancy, who started 11 games last season, may draw the most interest from other teams.
