Though things have quieted down from the whirlwind that was the first couple of days of free agency, there were a number of news items that transpired on Monday.

--The Cleveland Browns are hosting former Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe. The veteran was released after Kansas City signed Jeremy Maclin from the Eagles. Bowe could potentially team with Brian Hartline who signed a few days ago.

--The Browns also signed defensive lineman Randy Starks on Monday. It was a reported two-year deal, worth about $8 million.

--According to multiple sources, the Eagles are bringing in quarterback Tim Tebow in for a workout. Tebow hasn't played since 2012 when he was suiting up for the Jets, and the workout adds to the already-interesting offseason for Chip Kelly and Philadelphia.

--Multiple sources have announced that defensive tackle Vince Wilfork will be signing with the Houston Texans. The move reunites him with former Patriots assistant and current Houston head coach, Bill O'Brien.

--The Texans also signed former Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts to a two-year contract. Houston had a need at wide receiver with the departure of Andre Johnson.

--San Francisco re-signed Chris Cook and added Shareece Wright from the Chargers. Both are defensive backs.

--The Panthers signed safety Kurt Coleman, formerly with the Chiefs.

--The Chiefs made a safety transaction of their own by retaining Ron Parker.

--The Redskins signed safety Jeron Johnson from the Seahawks.
