Other NFL News

The Carolina Panthers tagged Julius Peppers meaning he will likely be on the Cowboys or an as-yet-unnamed AFC team next year. The Panthers agreed to terms with Jordan Gross for a 6-year contract for a hair under $60 million.

The Houston Texans tagged CB Dunta Robinson, keeping another quality CB off the market. The Colts signed Hayden to a 5-year $43 million contract this morning. Oakland and Asomugha appear close to a long-term contract which would essentially guarantee the one of the best defensive talents the NFL has seen in the last decade will not make it to the hall of fame.

The Titans are expected to franchise Bo Scaife, their standout tight end. This would've been important if Carlson wasn't such a total stud last year.
