Kyle’s update, 2:01 p.m.: Andy Dalton signs with the Bears for one-year, $10M. Ian Rapoport reported that the 49ers were among the teams that were interested in Dalton. That seems like starter money to me.

The Bengals signed Steelers CB Mike Hilton.
Kyle’s update, 10:42 a.m.: The Saints have expressed interest in Richard Sherman, per Tom Pelissero. Kris Richard, who coached Sherm in Seattle, is now the defensive backs coach for New Orleans.
The first day of free agency saw plenty of edge rush talent signed. There were a few head-scratching deals as well as some bargains. If you missed any of the signings, we kept track of them here.
Let’s get up to date on the latest free agency signings from Day 2. The Broncos exercised the $7 million guarantee option on Von Miller, so he won’t reach free agency. Denver will pay Miller $18 million for 2021.
The Jaguars signed two cornerbacks. They re-signed former Eagles’ second-round pick, Sidney Jones. The Jags also stole one of Seattle’s starting cornerbacks, Shaquill Griffin, who signed a three-year deal worth $40 million.
The Ravens signed Tyus Bowser to a four-year deal worth $22 million.
The Rams restructured Jalen Ramsey’s contract as well as Robert Woods’s to create $20 million in cap space. Ian Rapoport reported that conversions from Aaron Donald and Cooper Kupp would put the Rams under the threshold.
The prized free agent of the day happened early Tuesday morning when former Chargers’ tight end Hunter Henry signed a three-year deal for $37.5 million. New England has now signed Henry, Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor, and Kendrick Bourne. Speaking of, here are Bourne’s contract details:
Kendrick Bourne (Patriots) three years, $15M, $5.25M gtd, $4.25M signing bonus, salaries $1M (gtd), $3.5M, $4M, up to $750K per game active roster bonus, annual $1.5M catches, yards incentive annual, up to $3M catches, yards base escalator 2023— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) March 16, 2021
Back to New England, who is shopping former first-round pick, N’Keal Harry. The 49ers were interested in Harry, and if not for the Patriots selection Harry, it wouldn’t have been a surprise to see the Niners take him instead of Deebo Samuel.
ESPN’s Josh Weinfuss said there are at least three teams in the mix for Harry. The 49ers and Cardinals make sense. Let’s throw in Cleveland as the third since we’re playing the guessing game. How would you feel about Harry in the Bay Area?
