Crippled by injuries at cornerback, the Cleveland Browns have reached a contract agreement with veteran free agent Ray Mickens.
Two days of intense negotiations and give-and-take bargaining from both parties has moved the New York Jets to the brink of a deal with free agent cornerback Ty Law.
In what could be the first step toward an eventual contract agreement, or the latest indication that Ty Law's financial expectations are unreasonable, agent Carl Poston is scheduled to meet Wednesday with New York Jets officials.
Free agent cornerback Ty Law will work out on Monday for Detroit Lions management officials and coaches, his second visit with the team this offseason.
Veteran cornerback Ty Law will work out Thursday for the Jaguars.
Cornerback Ty Law insisted Thursday that he wants to finish his career with the New England Patriots but acknowledged that salary cap concerns could scuttle those plans.
The Patriots could be without CB Ty Law and two other regular secondary starters against the Rams, and Law will miss four to six weeks.
While his future with the Pats in 2004 is uncertain, CB Ty Law prefers to focus on another Super Bowl berth.
