In a month a new pro spring league will be announced. 8 teams in 2014, 10 in 2015. Will play in old USFL cities w/same names.
Some of the inaugural teams will be in Oakland, NJ, Philadelphia, and San Antonio
This new league is not affiliated with the NFL, not a developmental league. Leauge bought rights to all old USFL names (eg NJ Generals)

@MikeReiss: Free-agent RB Danny Woodhead agrees to 2-year deal with the Chargers, per source.
Regarding Abraham to the Patriots ...

Source says that Abraham's deal might not be finalized until later on tonight or tomorrow & is pending physical.
@MichelleBeisner: Source telling me, at this moment, things are not looking good between Dumervil and Broncos. A lot can happen in 39 mins though. #ticktock
LOL-a few minutes later:
@AdamSchefter: Elvis Dumervil agreed to salary reduction, smartly. Remains in Denver.
@MikeKlis: Hold on, contract not filed in time. Elvis Dumervil has been officially released
@MikeKlis: I'm serious. Contract was not filed by 1:59 p.m. Elvis Dumervil informed Broncos he was taking the new deal at 1:25.
@MikeKlis: Broncos could still sign Elvis Dumervil but there are salary cap implications. Not that simple.

@AdamSchefter: Lions announced S Louis Delmas returning to Detroit on a two-year deal.
@AdamSchefter: Now one-year deals starting to pile up, showing the free-agent market has shifted from shopping at Saks to shopping at Filene's.

... Dumervil and his reps were informed they needed to fax a signed deal back by 1:59 MT. When it didn't come back, Denver released him. ...
Albert Breer @AlbertBreer
... The Broncos have a fax with the signed deal from Dumervil timestamped at 2:06 pm MT. Denver source: "We had to protect ourselves."
Dumervil needs to fire his agent ASAP...that is simply unacceptable.
@NFLDraftInsider: And according to @_ErikaLeigh John Abraham is a #Patriot
@RavensInsider: Source now says Marcus Spears' two-year deal is completely finalized. He's a Raven
