Apologies for the late post today.

Let's get caught up:

Updated: Jeff McLane of the Inquirer reports that the Titans and Will Witherspoon have agreed to terms on a contract. ESPN's Adam Schefter says it's a three-year deal worth $11M.

* The Titans and defensive end Jason Babin are talking contract, according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean. The Eagles would have a chance to match any offer, but that obviously doesn't mean they'll do so. I offered my take on Babin's 2009 performance in my post on Sunday.

* Columnist Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press speculates that he wouldn't be surprised if the Saints or Eagles made a run at Vikings defensive end Ray Edwards. Edwards emerged last year with 8.5 sacks and a dominating performance in the divisional round against the Cowboys (three sacks and a forced fumble). He's a restricted free agent and only 25 years old. The Vikings could match any offer or get a first-round pick in exchange. I can't see Minnesota letting a guy like him go, but thought I'd pass along the link anyway.

* The Browns, who seem to be one of the teams always mentioned when the Eagles' quarterback situation is brought up, have made a couple moves in the last 24 hours. They traded for Seahawks QB Seneca Wallace and released Derek Anderson. So what do those things mean in terms of their QB search? Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer thinks the Browns are still looking to deal for a quarterback. And yes, he mentions Donovan McNabb, saying Cleveland would certain entertain that option if he were available.

Tony Grossi of The Plain Dealer, however, feels otherwise. He writes that a Browns trade for McNabb is "highly improbable" because the Eagles' asking price may be a first-rounder.

* And finally, those of you who wanted the Eagles to sign Thomas Jones as a veteran complement to LeSean McCoy and Leonard Weaver, sorry. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Chiefs have signed Jones to a two-year deal worth $5M with another $500,000 in incentives.
