ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson reports that the Raiders have not spoken to the agent for linebacker Kamerion Wimbley “in several days,” and are expected to release their top edge rusher barring a “major change.”
Wimbley, listed Monday among PFT’s top cap casualty candidates, appears no closer to reaching an adjusted contract with the Raiders. Despite Wednesday’s restructurings of safetyMichael Huff and defensive tackle Richard Seymour, Oakland remains out of position to pay Wimbley’s scheduled $11 million base salary.

Peyton Manning said Wednesday that he hadn’t started thinking about his next team before officially being released by the Colts, but a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN makes it seem like someone in his camp has been looking ahead.
Schefter reports that Manning will pick his 2012 team within the next week and that he has a preference to remain in the AFC over heading to the NFC. Both make a lot of sense.

The NFL’s overall level of concern regarding the bounty system maintained by the Saints became obvious when the league tried to drop the press release announcing the findings into the shallow end of the news cycle by releasing it on late Friday afternoon.
In addition to the official statement from the NFL, the league’s security department generated a “confidential” report on March 2, which ended up being not so confidential, after all. Within 30 minutes after the league disclosed the Saints’ bounty system, reporters were pointing to specific details from the four-page report written by NFL Security.

NFL teams are wasting no time in declaring their interest in free agent quarterback Peyton Manning.
Of the NFL’s 32 teams, 12 of them contacted Manning’s representatives in the hours after the Colts made his release official, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.
Among the teams that have reportedly reached out are the Cardinals, Seahawks, Broncos, Dolphins, Redskins, Titans and Jets. At least five other teams that are keeping their intentions quiet for now have also privately reached out.
