Former Utah star Paul Kruger had a standout season at his outside linebacker position with the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, including a pair of sacks in the NFL championship game. He finished his fourth NFL season with 42 tackles, nine sacks and a forced fumble during the regular season.

But salary cap restrictions may force Baltimore to let the emerging star loose. Kruger, an unrestricted free agent, would prefer to stay with the Ravens.

"I'd love to stay in Baltimore," Kruger told ESPN's NFL Live. "It's a great place to play in every aspect. The organization, the facilities, the teammates. It would be hard to leave, for sure."

A couple teams who could be suitors for Kruger include the Colts, Browns and Seahawks. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora said Cleveland could be looking for a pass rusher like Kruger.

Collie is good when he's not injured, but then so is Greg Oden. I understand there are some NBA teams actually considering signing Oden, so signing Collie, injury history and all, will likely happen.

Austin Collie is too fragile to play more than 2 to 3 games a season. Oden does play half the season. lol sometimes.
The Eagles could easily use Alex Smith.... Michael Vick can't finish a season unhurt.
