With several signings happening Thursday morning, we update the terms, releases and depth chart maneuvering from Wednesday and Thursday morning.

  • WR Joe Horn agreed to a multi-year deal with Atlanta reportedly for three years with around $2 million in guaranteed money, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Horn has missed 11 games over the past two seasons with groin and hamstring injuries, but the Falcons covet his experience to help underachieving youngsters Michael Jenkins and Roddy White.

  • RB Jamal Lewis signed with the Browns for one year and reportedly for $3.5 million with a possibility of earning as much as $5 million if he reaches all incentives. That a much sweeter deal than the one-year, $2 million offer he received from Baltimore. Lewis is believed to have wanted to stay with the Ravens, but didn't know what Baltimore's plans for the starting job would be even if he returned. Lewis was cut last month so the team could avoid paying a $5 million roster bonus, but the two sides seemed interested in working out a new deal.

  • CB Lewis Sanders signed with Atlanta. The seven-year veteran started seven games for Houston last year before ending the season on injured reserve (broken wrist).

  • QB Patrick Ramsey, released by the Jets, agreed to a two-year deal reportedly worth $5 million with the Broncos.

  • FB William Henderson, 36, was released by Green Bay.

  • LG Edwin Mulitalo, who missed most of last season with a torn triceps, was released by Baltimore. The move came as a bit of a surprise, but cleared $2 million under the Ravens' salary cap.

  • OG Jason Brown, who started 12 games last season for Baltimore, becomes the full-time starter on the left side after the release of Edwin Mulitalo.

  • LB Danny Clark, who has played for Oakland and New Orleans, signed a one-year deal with Houston.

  • CB Fred Thomas will return to the Saints after working out a renegotiated contract. Scheduled to make $2 million this season, Thomas likely would have been released without a new deal. Terms of the new contract were unknown.

  • MLB Brian Simmons has agreed to a three-year deal with the Saints. He had spent his first nine seasons with Cincinnati, and will compete with Brian Simoneau for the starting job in the middle.

  • K Jay Feely, who opted out of his contract with the Giants, has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $6 million deal with the Dolphins that includes $2.5 million in guaranteed money. Miami is expected to release veteran K Olindo Mare.

  • K Olindo Mare is expected to be released after the Dolphins reportedly agreed to a three-year, $6 million deal with former Giants K Jay Feely.

  • TE Eric Johnson has agreed to a reported one-year, $2 million deal with the Saints. He is expected to step into the starting role and offer the team a better receiving option over the middle.

  • WR Bethel Johnson has agreed to a one-year deal with the Eagles. Financial terms were not immediately known.

  • LS Jean-Phillipe Darche, a long snapper who spent seven years in Seattle, signed with Kansas City.

  • RB Aveion Cason, an unrestricted free agent, re-signed with Detroit for one year.

  • DL Cleveland Pinkney, an unrestricted free agent, re-signed with Detroit for one year.

  • P Chad Stanley, an unrestriced free agent, has re-signed with the Texans. Terms were not disclosed.
