8:05 pm (ET) Update: 

ColtPower.com is reporting that:

-- Mike Doss will visit Tampa Bay on Thursday. He should get a strong push from them as their safety situation is a real weakness for the club.

-- Former Colts kicker Martin Grammatica has re-signed with the Dallas Cowboys.

Paul Kuharsky at thetennessean.com is reporting that former Eagles WR Donte Stallworth will visit the Titans on Wednesday.

12:55 pm (ET) Update: 

Scout.com's Adam Caplan is reporting that Colts cornerback Nick Harper will be visiting the Tennessee Titans, his first free agent visit. Caplan also says that former Patriots RB Corey Dillon will visit Buffalo. That makes him the third RB slated for a visit following Dominick Rhodes' visit and today's visit by Titans RB Chris Brown.

Terry McCormick at nashvillecitypaper.com is reporting that Rhodes has a visit set up with the Titans as well.

9:45 am (ET) Update: 

ColtPower.com is reporting that:

-- Former Colts and Cardinals cornerback David Macklin arrived in Kansas City for a visit on Tuesday with the Chiefs. And according to a report in the Washington Post, the unrestricted free agent will be visiting the Broncos.

-- Through Tuesday, the only Colts free agent that has had any visits with NFL teams so far is RB Dominic Rhodes. He visited the Giants on Friday and Saturday, and then went to Buffalo for a visit on Tuesday. According to one of sources, he's drawn calls from five teams to date. With the Bills shopping starter Willis McGahee, it appears Rhodes and Titans RB Chris Brown (who is due to arrive in Buffalo today), are the primary candidates to replace McGahee.

-- The Patriots have re-signed LB and special teams star Larry Izzo, a player that would have been a nice addition to the Colts special teams.

-- The Titans took another hit on Tuesday when free agent WR Bobby Wade signed with the Vikings. They previously lost WR Drew Bennett to the Rams. Tennessee DT Robaire Smith is also starting to make the rounds. The unrestricted free agent was in Cleveland on Tuesday and is one of the top DTs available in this year's pool of free agents.

-- The 49ers have re-signed former Colts cornerback Donald Strickland just a few days after releasing him.

-- Houston's urgency in signing former Packers RB Ahman Green was partly spurred by the revelation that Domanick Williams (formerly Domanick Davis) will need more surgery on the knee that caused him to miss last season. Texans GM Rick Smith broke the news on that during Green's press conference following his signing.

Jimmy Smith at nola.com is reporting that kicker Mike Vanderjagt (Cowboys) visited the Saints on Tuesday. Vanderjagt is quoted as saying the Saints are his first choice of where he'd like to land in 2007.
