Giants and JPP reach agreement on a 1-year deal, as @RapSheet reported. JPP's deal worth up to $10.5 million. Arizona made late push for him.

The state of NFL QBs can be best described by the sentence "The Rams put a first-round RFA tender on Case Keenum."

I thought if deal was close, Osweiler would remain in Denver---just got word that from his camp that if offers were close, he was leaving.

Pat McManamonESPN Staff Writer:

On the first day of the NFL's 2016 free agency period, the following happened in Cleveland:

-- Center Alex Mack, a Pro Bowler in two of the last three seasons, left for the Atlanta Falcons.

-- Receiver Travis Benjamin, the team's best playmaker in 2015, left for the San Diego Chargers.

-- Tackle Mitchell Schwartz, considered one of the better right tackles in the league, left for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Browns did not add a player, and kept quarterback Johnny Manziel -- the subject of a grand jury inquiry into whether he assaulted his former girlfriend -- on the roster.

The Browns did not cut the problematic quarterback, who has made late-night and/or early-morning appearance after appearance on social media in places like Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Miami since the 2015 season ended.

And that season ended with Manziel in concussion protocol spending the weekend in Las Vegas while the Browns played the season finale.

That player is still on the roster.

The Browns surely have their reasons for not immediately releasing Manziel -- maybe a team will offer a late-round draft pick in trade. The bottom line remains that he will not be with the team in 2016.

But losing three starters who were drafted by Cleveland and grew up with the Browns while adding nobody and keeping the team's biggest headache and distraction from the last two seasons?

Well, that's a "That's So Browns" way to start free agency if ever there was one.

One free-agent tight end came off the market Monday when Dwayne Allen re-signed with the Colts for a four-year deal that Pro Football Talk reported is worth $29.4 million and included $16 million guaranteed. That’s big money for a guy who had only 45 receptions the last two seasons combined.

It’s hard to envision Thompson willing to pay Allen that kind of money. But there still are several tight ends who warrant a look at one of the two weakest positions on the Packers’ roster (inside linebacker is the other): San Diego’s Ladarius Green, Denver’s Vernon Davis, Los Angeles’ Jared Cook, Indianapolis’ Coby Fleener, and if the Chicago Bears release him, Martellus Bennett.

Allen’s contract, though, suggests the price is going to be high. Green is only 25 and probably will get similar money, if not more. That’s assuming the initial report of Allen’s $7.35 million average didn’t inflate his deal.

Green is faster and more athletic. But would Thompson fork out that kind of money for another team’s young and relatively unproven player? I’d guess not.

That would leave Davis, Cook, Fleener and perhaps Bennett in play. You have to wonder if Davis will end up being the best bargain of the group. His age (32) could hold down his value compared to the others. But he’s the rare player who still runs well at his age and size.

I would like to see Green Bay improve the defense. I don't see a need in the DBs, so LBs or DL could be an area where we see TT make a signing or two. I would also say TE, but TT just doesn't go after that many guys. So maybe in a couple of weeks we will hear of a TT signing.
