"He would crawl from Baltimore right now to be able to play in Cleveland," Smith's agent Ralph Cindrich said in a phone interview. "That's clearly where his heart is. That's where his love is. He has a great relationship in Baltimore and with the fans as long as I don't muck it up too much. He has a great relationship with (Baltimore General Manager) Ozzie Newsome. It's just that this is where home is. In the offseason, he tells me, 'Get me home.'"

RB | Darren McFadden | Oakland Raiders | Draft Information, Free Agency News, Fantasy
Jerry McDonald, of The Oakland Tribune, reports the Oakland Raiders are in the market for a running back after releasing RB Justin Fargas.

WR | Terrell Owens | Free Agent | Free Agency News
Joe Reedy, of The Cincinnati Enquirer, reports the only scenario where Denver Broncos WR Brandon Marshall would become a more viable option for the Cincinnati Bengals is if the team's top two targets, free-agent WRs Terrell Owens (Bills) and Antonio Bryant (Buccaneers), come off the market.
