What's left in free agency? The answer is not much. Here is a list of remaining players in free agency with four years of experience.
Offensive tackle Khlaif Barnes (above) has broken off talks with Oakland and San Francisco. The assumption is that could point Marvel Smith toward Oakland. Smith, who has been hampered by back injuries the last two seasons in Pittsburgh, has reportedly drawn interest from Baltimore and Oakland. Barnes is believed to be close to signing with an unnamed team and a source ensured us late Friday night that the Bears are not in play for the ex-Jacksonville Jaguar.
How does it impact the Bears? Well, as David White pointed out in the San Francisco Chronicle, no one wants to be the first to take a deal and then watch guys around him use that contract as a building block to something bigger and better. The Bears have not been players for Barnes or Smith but are hoping to re-sign John St. Clair. Movement on that front could come in the next week.
Elsewhere, there's one report that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers could have interest in often-injured safety Brandon McGowan. No telling how the re-signing of Jermaine Phillips could impact that interest.
