Former running back Priest Holmes’ name surfaced in a few conversations. Holmes signed a relatively cheap contract to move from the Baltimore Ravens to the Kansas City Chiefs in 2001.

In his seven pro seasons, LeGarrette Blount has rushed for 5,122 yards and 49 touchdowns.

Having acquired him after two career-killing years with the Raiders, the Patriots signed Moss to a one-year deal worth $3 million. Moss, of course, went on to have the best season of his career. As the NFL’s 40th-highest-paid receiver that year, he caught 98 passes for 1,493 yards and a league-record 23 touchdowns.

Quinn didnâ€™t take questions on Quarlessâ€™ signing and released a statement instead — leaving Caldwell to answer media queries — which was not the best look.
