Tuesday Morning UA Senior Bowl Buzz

While the weather was quite cold on Monday, that didn't stop general managers from having discussions with various player agents about getting new deals done.

MOBILE, Ala. --

Here's another update on some player and coaching news:

- According to a league source, the Seattle Seahawks and CB Marcus Trufant aren't close to getting a deal done at this point and both sides have plenty of room to make up if there's an agreement to be reached before the start of free agency. Trufant, Nnamdi Asomugha (Oakland Raiders), and Asante Samuel (New England Patriots) are the top free agent cornerbacks.

- Oakland Raiders starting G Cooper Carlisle was able to void the final year of his two-year deal and will be a free agent, his agent Frank Murtha confirmed to Scout.com. Carlisle started all 16 games at right guard for the Raiders during the 2007 season.

- As first noted by Scout.com earlier on Monday, the Miami Dolphins have interest in hiring veteran coach Dan Henning as their offensive coordinator. A league source, who knows Henning and Miami's VP of football operations Bill Parcells, notes Parcells has strong interest in Henning because of the power-rushing philosophy that the two men share.

- The agent for Cleveland Browns head coach Romeo Crennel, Joe Linta, is scheduled to meet with general manager Phil Savage on Tuesday afternoon to discuss a contract extension for the veteran coach.

Team Identified Player Interest

Scout.com's contingent of reporters in Mobile noted the following teams showing interest in various players so far:

Atlanta Falcons - Dantrell Savage/RB - With veteran RB Warrick Dunn's stellar career winding down, the interest in Savage by Atlanta comes as no surprise.

Chicago Bears - Marcus Harrison/DT - This team suffered a bunch of injuries at defensive tackle last season.

Cleveland Browns - Joe Flacco/QB - This is interesting considering they spent one of their two first-round picks last year on a quarterback. But think about this: If Cleveland winds up trading QB Derek Anderson (similar in size and arm strength to Flacco), they would need someone to challenge Brady Quinn or have a fallback plan should Quinn falter.

Denver Broncos - Roy Schuening/G - Denver certainly could use an upgrade on the interior of their offensive line.

Jamar Adams/S - They could probably use an upgrade over Hamza Abdullah so their interest in Adams makes some sense.

Kansas City Chiefs - Tracy Porter/CB. This makes total sense based on the age of their two starting cornerbacks.

Colt Brennan/QB - The athletic signal caller could challenge QB Brodie Croyle for playing time down the line.

Kentwan Balmer/DT - They could use another interior defensive lineman with upside.

Miami Dolphins - Andre Caldwell/WR - This team is light on depth at the position and they could probably use a younger receiver to challenge veteran WR Marty Booker for a starting job.

Marcus Harrison/DT - The age of their interior defensive linemen explains their interest of Harrison.

New Orleans Saints - Dantrell Savage/RB - This team could use depth at the position since veteran RB Deuce McAllister is coming back from another ACL injury.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Andre Caldwell/WR - With the struggles of former first-round pick Michael Clayton, it's not a surprise that Tampa Bay would show interest in Caldwell.

Marcus Harrison/DT - This team is light on depth in the interior of their defensive line so their interest makes some sense.
