John Clayton's phone is ringing.

ESPN's John Clayton is reporting that the San Francisco 49er's are close to signing cornerback, Nate Clements. The niners are really in need of adding depth to their secondary and signing Clements could really go along way to restoring their niner's swagger.

Othe moves Clayton is reporting:

The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to a deal with Ovie Mughelli that would make him the highest paid fullback in the NFL. The deal is said to be worth $18M over 6 years.

The Jacksonville Jaguars and right tackle, Tony Pashos. The Jag's also re-signed their kicker Josh Scobee for a 5-year deal.

The New England Patriots have released runningback Corey Dillon at his request. Dillon originally said that he was considering retirement, but I don't think anyone really bought that. I believe that he just wants one more shot at starting before he calls it a career. The Pat's are more than comfortable with handing the reins to rookie standout, Laurence Maroney.

"On behalf of the New England Patriots organization, we respect and appreciate Corey Dillon's significant contributions to our team," coach Bill Belichick said in a statement issued by the team. "Those contributions extend beyond his individual on-field achievements and his integral role in a championship season. They also include three years of veteran leadership and positive relationships throughout the team."

I assure you, there is more to come as more deals are in the works. Such as the Patriots are seeing what they can do about signing Adalius Thomas.
