Morning Links, News and Rumors

- In "I didn't even know he was still on the team" news, the Redskins have told punter Josh Bidwell that he will be released. Bidwell started the 2010 season for the Skins before going on IR. After that Gano, Smith and Paulescu took over the punting duties. Football Insider (The Post)

- Bears to release punter Brad Maynard. This has been rumored and Maynard is on the radar as a possible target.

- Donovan McNabb trade almost done. McNabb must agree to new contract with the Vikings. If this happens, the Skins will receive Minnesota's 2012 6th round pick. Skins may also receive the Vikings 2013 6th round pick based on playing time in the 2011 season. DC Pro Sports Report via Jay Glazer.

- Skins sign former Giants DT, Barry Cofield to a reported 6 year undisclosed deal. Although the deal is supposed to contain approx. 12.5 million in guaranteed money. No indication by the Skins on whether Cofield will play DE or compete for the starting NT position. Deal can't be made official until Friday. The Post

- Various Tweets on Twitter are hinting that WR, Santonio Holmes (and potential Redskins target) has re-signed with the Jets.

- Rumored target G/T Marshall Yanda re-signs with Ravens. PFT

- Former Eagle kicker David Akers is a unrestricted free agent? Could he have a second stint in Washington?

- Rumor is that Skins are looking at former Trojan and Texan Matt Leinart as a possible signing. Of course, I'm hearing rumors that Leinart's former USC coach has interest in him up in Seattle.
