UPDATE (4:40 pm)

Notes from Hobson's latest.

  • Joey Porter's agent said, in Hobson's latest, that it would take a "significant deal" to get Porter signed.
  • Steinbach is looking in the $7 million range but would have taken $5.2 per with the Bengals.

In Mark Curnutte's latest, he updates the Bengals free agents that the team could realistically sign back.

"Nothing's happening," Bruce Tollner, (Kevin) Kaesviharn's agent, said Thursday...

On Tony Stewart.

Nothing's warm and fuzzy," said Jerrold Colton, Stewart's agent.

Marcus Wilkins?

"The proposal we got does not meet our goals," Mersel said. "We have some free-agent visits planned. Marcus likes the organization, but we don't want to get too specific now."

Kelley Washington is visiting with the Miami Dolphins Friday.

Eric Steinbach is visiting the Browns today. Seattle and Tampa Bay are also interested.
