NFL Rumors: Raiders, Redskins, Titans Among Teams Interested in Steelers' Antonio Brown

Get the latest scoops, news and rumors as NFL teams prepare for the draft and free agency.

The annual scouting combine is underway in Indianapolis ahead of April's draft in Nashville.

While teams take a look at 2019's top prospect, the business of free agency and roster shaping has started. Until Tuesday, teams can select players to use the franchise tag as a means of securing another year of service without free agency and in hopes of reaching a long-term deal.

The new league year officially starts on March 13 but talks have begun well in advance.
