Open for business, wild as it might get. The NFLs calendar turns toward a new season today when free agency begins. As if there hasnt been enough news with the Peyton Manning tour, Saints bounties and veterans being cut by their teams, now comes the roster feeding frenzy. Four-time MVP Manning is, of course, the top free agent after he was released last week by Indianapolis. So far, hes met only with the Broncos and Cardinals. Manning did not show at the Dolphins headquarters Monday despite speculation he would meet with the team. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross arrived at the team complex at midmorning, and several players -- including quarterback Chad Henne -- showed up around the same time to work out. Henne is a free agent and not expected back this season. A media stakeout at the complex began when a local TV station camera crew arrived at 4 a.m. Half a dozen TV cameras and a handful of reporters eventually gathered across the street. They werent allowed on the teams property, but a Dolphins official brought out water, pizza and napkins. Curious motorists occasionally pulled up to ask for an update. While Manning is pursued, many other game-changers, such as Ray Rice, Wes Welker, Matt Forte and DeSean Jackson, were given franchise tags and will require compensation if they switch teams. Still, there are dozens of enticing options, from Mario Williams to Mario Manningham, from Vincent Jackson to Matt Flynn. "You go into pro free agency to try to address a need, hopefully not needs," Jaguars general manager Gene Smith said. "You want to get a couple of players out of it that can come in here and help you right away. Youre looking for a quality starter or maybe trying to fill a situational role on your team. But filling huge holes, thats not where you want to be." Addressing those needs is best done in the draft. But that grab bag isnt until late April, by which time many teams will have spent many millions of dollars on free agents. Several others will let players walk to clear salary cap space. On Monday, the Redskins released safety Oshiomogho Atogwe, who signed a five-year, $26 million contract just before the NFL lockout began last March. They also cut veteran fullback Mike Sellers. So Washington has 16 players who could leave, plus tight end Fred Davis, who received the franchise tag and would bring two No. 1 draft picks if he signs elsewhere. Not that the Redskins would mind an extra pick or two considering the high price they paid to St. Louis to move up to the second slot in the draft so they can choose Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. A few teams were busy placing tenders on restricted free agents to avoid losing them without compensation. The Steelers did so with Pro Bowl receiver Mike Wallace and five others. The Bills did the same with offensive linemen Chad Rinehart and Kraig Urbik. San Francisco tendered cornerback Tramaine Brock and linebacker Larry Grant. Cincinnati re-signed four potential free agents: fullback Chris Pressley, running back Cedric Peerman, linebacker Vincent Rey and defensive tackle Nick Hayden. The Jets said their top priority in free agency was keeping nose tackle Sione Pouha and the seven-year veteran agreed to a three-year deal Monday. "Every player that approaches the last year of their contract and enters the screen door of free agency knows theres always the possibility (of leaving)," Pouha said, "but in my mind I always wanted to be with the Jets, remain with the Jets." A slew of veterans have taken the opposite route after being released by their teams. Indianapolis housecleaning went far beyond Manning, with RB Joseph Addai, TE Dallas Clark, LB Gary Brackett, QB Curtis Painter and safety Melvin Bullitt cut last week. Minneapolis went down the same path, cutting guards Steve Hutchinson and Anthony Herrera and cornerback Cedric Griffin. www.ramsjerseyssale.com/Trumaine-johnson-jersey/ . Jean Baptiste Gonnet, Johan Edfors, Kieran Pratt, Matthew Baldwin and Kim Gi-wang are leading after fog engulfed the Blackstone course to force a delay of 2 hours, 10 minutes, leaving half the field to complete their rounds early Friday when bad light stopped play. www.ramsjerseyssale.com/Michael-brockers-jersey/ . All he wanted to do was avoid looking bad against one of baseballs hardest throwers. http://www.ramsjerseyssale.com/Chris-long-jersey/. The specifics of the trade are not yet known but forward Ales Kotalik is expected to be involved as well. Regehr finished with 17 points and a plus-2 rating in 79 games this season. www.ramsjerseyssale.com/Daryl-richardson-jersey/ . The former New York Giants star and unrestricted free agent visited the Indianapolis Colts team complex Thursday and was still negotiating with the team Friday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no deal had yet been reached. www.ramsjerseyssale.com/Iphone-case/ . Williams has won 35 of her past 36 matches, including titles at Wimbledon, the Olympics, the U.S. Open, the season-ending championship and now the first event of 2013. She already has won the Australian Open five times, and with the seasons first major a little more than a week away, shes in good shape to add another one.Despite suffering their first regulation loss of the season, the San Jose Sharks continue as the top-ranked team in the TSN.ca NHL Power Rankings, ahead of the Colorado Avalanche and St. Louis Blues, two teams that also have just one regulation loss. Moving up this week, the Tampa Bay Lightning have won five of six, good enough to jump from 12 to five. The Minnesota Wild have won three straight and climbed into the Top 10, going from 13 to nine, and the Los Angeles Kings continued their shootout acumen, moving to 4-0 after 65 minutes of play, but two losses in the last nine games has helped them go from 18 to 14. Three wins in the last four games helped lift the Columbus Blue Jackets from 22 to 17. Heading the other way, the Pittsburgh Penguins fell, from two to 11, after they were outscored 9-4 in three straight losses, while injuries and a couple of losses contributed to the Anaheim Ducks going from six to 15.dddddddddddd Goaltending injuries contribted to both the Nashville Predators and Carolina Hurricanes falling, Nashville from 15 to 21 and Carolina from 19 to 24. Among Canadian teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs are highest-ranked, up from 10 to six, remaining one spot ahead of the Vancouver Canucks, up from 11 to seven. The Calgary Flames continue to surprise, up from 14 to 12, and the Montreal Canadiens, beaten down by injuries, fell from nine to 13. Despite uneven progress, the Ottawa Senators are up a couple of spots, to 19, as the Winnipeg Jets are up from 23 to 22. At the bottom, among Canadian clubs, the Edmonton Oilers are up from 26 to 25, but have an ever-growing list of injuries with which to contend.
