NFL Free Agency: Bigby, Barnett, and Maybin

Atari Bigby to visit the Seahawks | ProFootballTalk. The Seahawks might be in the market for the Green Bay Packers former starting safety. It wouldn't be a big surprise because former Packer exec, and current Seahawks, GM John Schneider has signed a couple of recent Packer cast offs (Evan Dietrich-Smith, Allen Barbre). Also, after watching the Seahawks struggle with veteran S Lawyer Malloy in the playoffs, Bigby could actually provide a slight upgrade. If he can stay healthy, of course.

PFF: Bills Upgraded Replacing Paul Posluszny With Nick Barnett - Buffalo Rumblings. This isn't current free agent news, but I wouldn't be surprised if Barnett is better than Posluszny. He might even be more reliable by staying healthy. Though Barnett has missed big chunks of the 2008 and 2010 seasons due to injury, Posluszny has only made it through one NFL season for all 16 games. Barnett has played in 15 or 16 games in 6 of his 8 NFL seasons.

Chicago Bears: Bears may be interested in waived Bills linebacker Aaron Maybin - He's not yet a free agent, but I'd be surprised if anyone claimed him off waivers. Via Pro Football Talk is the idea that the Bears might want to bring in the former 2009 draft bust. He was drafted as a pass rushing defensive end, and selected before Redskins LB Brian Orakpo and Packers LB Clay Matthews, and he's still looking for his first career NFL sack. But now he can't keep his weight over 230 lbs. and as the Bills GM says, that's really the size for a strong safety, not a defensive end or even a linebacker.
