Cincinnati Bengals sign WR Gabriel

Receiver Doug Gabriel, who was out of the NFL last season, 
signed a one-year contract Tuesday with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bengals added Gabriel to their thin receiving corps as week 
after they released No. 3 receiver Chris Henry last week 
following his latest arrest. Oakland drafted Gabriel out of 
Central Florida in the fifth round in 2003. He played for the 
Raiders through 2005, and was traded to New England. Oakland 
claimed him off waivers during the 2006 season, then released 
him last August.

Bears LB Brian Urlacher may skip voluntary workouts

Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher might skip the team's voluntary 
offseason workouts while he seeks a contract extension.
The Chicago Tribune reported that Urlacher planned to miss 
Monday's first day and perhaps the rest of the workouts, which 
include organized team activities. The Bears declined to disclose 
whether Urlacher participated Monday, and the workouts are closed 
to the media. Urlacher can't be fined since the workouts are 
voluntary. But when linebacker Lance Briggs and former running 
back Thomas Jones skipped voluntary offseason workouts in 2006, 
the team demoted them from starting roles for a brief time.
Urlacher has a contract that runs through 2011. He made $3.95 
million last season and is slated to make the same amount this

Free agent LB Victor Hobson leaves Jets for Patriots

The New England Patriots signed free agent Victor Hobson on 
Monday, bolstering their aging linebacker corps. Hobson, 28, 
has spent all five of his seasons with the New York Jets, 
starting 58 of the 76 games he played. He joins a linebacking 
group that had Tedy Bruschi, Mike Vrabel and Junior Seau as 
starters last season. All are over 30. "Victor is a good 
young player with considerable playing experience," Patriots 
coach Bill Belichick said in a statement. Hobson, a second-
round draft pick out of Michigan in 2003, started 14 games 
last year with 62 tackles and two sacks. His best season was 
2006, when he had 100 tackles, six sacks and an interception.

Saints sign cornerback Aaron Glenn

The New Orleans Saints signed cornerback Aaron Glenn on Monday, 
hoping the 14-year veteran free agent can help shore up a shoddy 
pass defense. Glenn, a former first-round pick who started four 
games for Jacksonville in 2007, has 41 career interceptions, six 
of them for touchdowns. He ranks fifth among active NFL players in 
interceptions. Terms of the deal were not released.
The Saints were 30th in the NFL in passing yards allowed last 
season, giving up 245.2 per game. Glenn, 5-feet-9, 183 pounds, 
was the top pick of the New York Jets in 1994. He spent his first 
eight seasons with the Jets and since has played for Houston, Dallas 
and Jacksonville. He played in five games last season, making one 
interception, which he returned for a touchdown. Glenn's first 
season with the Cowboys overlapped with current Saints coach Sean 
Payton's final season as an assistant in Dallas under Bill Parcells. 
Saints defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs also was an assistant in 
Dallas that season. The Saints' starting cornerbacks in 2007, 
Mike McKenzie and Jason David, both will be back next season, 
but McKenzie is rehabilitating from reconstructive knee surgery 
and may not be ready to play when the regular season opens.
David had a difficult adjustment to New Orleans' defensive scheme 
last season, getting beaten for several long touchdowns.
The Saints also have signed former New England Patriots and
LSU cornerback Randall Gay during the offseason. Glenn has not 
been a full time starter since 2004, his last season in Houston, 
when he started all 16 games.

Jaguars QB David Garrard signs contract extension with Jaguars

Quarterback David Garrard has signed a contract extension with 
the Jacksonville Jaguars. Terms of Monday's deal were not released. 
But Garrard and his agent, Albert Irby, had been looking for 
something similar to the six-year, $67.5 million contract Dallas 
quarterback Tony Romo signed last season. The 30-year-old 
Garrard is coming off his best season. He completed 64 percent 
of his passes for 2,509 yards and 18 touchdowns despite missing 
three games because of an ankle injury. He threw just three 
interceptions and finished with the NFL's third-highest passer 
rating (102.2). A longtime backup who beat out Byron Leftwich 
last preseason, Garrard was entering the final year of a four-
year deal that paid about $2 million annually.

Cornerback/kick returner Chris Carr joins Titans as free agent

Cornerback and kick returner Chris Carr officially joined the 
Tennessee Titans when the Oakland Raiders declined to match 
Tennessee's offer sheet. The Titans signed Carr, a restricted 
free agent, a week ago. The Raiders had until Friday night to 
match the contract. The Titans said Saturday that Oakland had 
declined to match the offer sheet. Tennessee hopes to improve 
its return game with the addition of Carr, the Raiders' career 
leader in kickoff returns with 201 and kickoff return yards 
with 4,841. In three NFL seasons, Carr has played in 48 games 
with four starts.

Redskins make 1st free agent addition, sign WR-KR Jerome Mathis

The Washington Redskins added a free agent for the first time 
this offseason Friday, signing receiver and former Pro Bowl 
kick returner Jerome Mathis. Mathis made the Pro Bowl as a 
returner with the Houston Texans in 2005, but he was injured 
for most of the last two seasons. He became a free agent this 
year when the Texans opted not to make him a qualifying offer 
at the end of the season. Mathis has had two recent run-ins
with the law. In December, he received a misdemeanor citation 
after his pit bull chewed through a fence and was behaving 
aggressively. In February, he was charged with assaulting his 
pregnant common-law wife, a charge that was later dropped at 
the woman's request. The 24-year-old Mathis broke the NCAA 
record for career kickoff return average at Hampton, averaging 
26.6 yards. He also holds the NCAA record for career kickoff 
returns for a touchdown with six. The signing is a minor first 
addition for the usually big-spending Redskins, who 
uncharacteristically have de-emphasized the free agent market 
this year and are instead concentrating on this month's draft. 
Washington's only previous moves this offseason had been to 
re-sign some of their own free agents.

Bengals release RB Quincy Wilson, who was arrested last year

Running back Quincy Wilson has been waived by the Cincinnati 
Bengals. It is the second time in the past five days the Bengals
released a player who had been arrested. The second-year running 
back from West Virginia was arrested last June 17 in Huntington, 
W.Va., and charged with disorderly conduct for failing to 
disperse after a weekend wedding party. The Bengals waived him 
Monday. Wilson was the 10th Bengals player arrested in a 14-
month span. The Bengals recently released receiver Chris Henry, 
another former West Virginia star, after he was arrested last 
week on an assault charge, his fifth arrest while he was with 
the team.
