Free agency 2013 live blog: Day 1

This is the live blog for Day 1 of free agency. I’ll update this frequently with information and analysis from the Cohn Zohn.

12:39 According to Adam Schefter, the Eagles will release Nnamdi Asomugha today. Do you think the 49ers should sign him? As you probably know, I think the Niners should draft new defensive backs this offseason rather than sign veterans.

12:46 Name one free agent you think the 49ers will sign today. My guess: Josh Cribbs.

12:47 Schefter just reported the Bucs are a potential landing spot for Darrelle Revis. Could the Vikings be a better landing spot? They have two first round picks to trade, and they just cut their No.1 cornerback, Antoine Winfield.

1:01 Ricky Jean Francois just tweeted: “Damn I feel so good. Lol.” He is a free agent.

1:04 TE Martellus Bennett will sign with the Bears. Look for them to draft an offensive lineman with their first round pick.

1:11 Schefter just said on Sportscenter that the Titans want to sign Delanie Walker and the Bucs want to sign Dashon Goldson.

1:15 Top free agent offensive tackle Jake Long will visit the Rams.

1:21 Isaac Sopoaga will visit with the Eagles. Former 49ers’ personnel man Tom Gamble must like his former nose tackle.

1:22 The Bills just released their starting quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick. Do you think they’ll draft a QB with the eighth pick in the draft, or do you think they’ll trade up? Or do you think they’ll do neither?

1:30 If you haven’t already heard, Mike Wallace probably will be a Dolphin. Now the deal is pending a physical.

1:32 ESPN is reporting the Titans are on the verge of signing Delanie Walker.

1:37 Schefter just said on Sportscenter the Browns have agreed to a five-year, $40 million contract for OLB/DE Paul Kruger.

1:49 According to Barrows, the 49ers are interested in LB Lorenzo Alexander.

2:02 Schefter just tweeted DT Glenn Dorsey will meet with the 49ers, and Delanie Walker signed a four-year contract with the Titans.

3:42 The Cardinals are close to signing Josh Cribbs. This doesn’t sound right to me. The Cardinals already have a stud returner – Patrick Peterson. Why would they pay for a second one?

3:45 Schefter reports the Titans will pay Walker $17.5 million over four years, with $8.6 million guaranteed.

3:46 The Rams signed tight end Jared Cook. Do you think he’s an upgrade over Danny Amedola in the middle of the field for the Rams?

3:58 Do you think the 49ers will draft a tight end to replace Delanie Walker? If so, whom? The 49ers met with Zach Ertz and Travis Kelce – two second round prospects. Do you think the Niners would draft a tight end that high?

4:34 Will Anquan Boldin be the 49ers’ starting split end? With Michael Crabtree at flanker, in an ideal world you’d want a split end who could take the top off a defense. That’s not Boldin’s game. He’s a big slot receiver who can out muscle nickel backs.

4:41 The Packer Report reports the Packers most likely will sign Steven Jackson.

4:57 The Raiders released Darrius Heyward-Bey and Michael Huff.

5:07 Jeff McLane reports Darrelle Revis has been traded to the Bucs.

5:17 The Eagles just signed Isaac Sopoaga for three years, $12 million, $5 million guaranteed.

5:20 Charles Woodson will meet with the 49ers on Wednesday.

5:59 Desmond Bryant will sign with the Browns.
