The Redskins also didn’t want to have too much money tied up in one player — unless it was for a quarterback at the level of an Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady. Smith, once he joins the Redskins, will count $17 million against the cap this season.
The Lions already made their Authentic Doug Harvey Jersey first big decision, franchising their own big-ticket free agent, defensive end Ezekiel Ansah. Detroit does have money to spend, and Quinn could have some big targets in mind (he has been aggressive in targeting positions of need in his first two offseasons by signing receiver Marvin Jones, guard T.J. Lang and offensive tackle Rick Wagner). But this year Quinn might not have to be as aggressive, continuing to focus on areas of improvement and building depth instead of trying to sign the biggest names possible. — Michael Rothstein
The Colts will have around $79 million in cap space to address their offensive line, pass rush, receiver and running back needs. General manager Chris Ballard already has said they won’t break the bank. His focus is building the roster through the draft. If the Colts do spend on free agents, you can expect it to be on a player who is still relatively young with a strong upside. The days of overspending on players on the decline — as was the case under former general manager Ryan Grigson — are over in Indianapolis with Ballard making the decisions. We won’t pay a mid-tier player [top-tier] money, Ballard said. — Mike Wells

Who’s an under-the-radar free agent likely to be in a bidding war?
Matt Bowen, NFL writer: Lamarcus Joyner, S, Los Angeles Rams. Joyner doesn’t have the national recognition at the safety position, but his tape is legit and his versatility in the secondary meshes with the modern game. Joyner can play over the top as a deep safety in the middle of the field, roll down to cover in the slot and has some thunder in his pads on contact. You want a defensive chess piece to counter today’s NFL offenses? Make a run at Joyner.
