King Dunlap (Philadelphia Eagles)

Contract details:
3/30/2012: Signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract. Another $1 million is available through incentives.

Eagles re-signed OT King Dunlap to a one-year contract.
The 6-foot-9 Dunlap started one game at left tackle and another at left guard last season before a November concussion sent him to the sidelines for a month. He'll return as the swing tackle behind LT Jason Peters and RT Todd Herremans.

Bruce Campbell (Carolina Panthers)

Panthers acquired G/T Bruce Campbell from the Raiders in exchange for RB Mike Goodson.
A "workout warrior" during the 2010 Scouting Combine, Campbell was drafted by Al Davis two Aprils ago after running a 4.85 forty at 6-foot-6 3/8 and 314 pounds. He has freakish, 36 1/4-inch arms, but remains a major project going on age 24. Campbell never made a start in two seasons with the Raiders. He'll have to compete for a role as a backup, swing-type tackle in Carolina.

Antwan Applewhite (Carolina Panthers)

Antwan Applewhite contract Carolina Panthers...
Panthers re-signed DE/OLB Antwan Applewhite.
A favorite of coach Ron Rivera, Applewhite gets high marks for special teams prowess and locker room presence. He's also flashed pass rushing ability going back to his early career with the Chargers. Applewhite will be a backup in 2012 after recording 21 tackles and two sacks last season.

J.T. Brown (Tampa Bay Lightning)

The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed college free agent J.T. Brown to a two-year contract.
"He has all the top characteristics we look for in a player, including high skill and compete levels," GM Steve Yzerman said. "We're glad he chose to play for the Lightning and we look forward to getting him in the lineup as quickly as possible." Brown notched 24 goals and added 23 assists in 39 games for the University of Minnesota-Duluth during his sophomore season in 2011-12. He is expected to join the Lightning later this week and will probably get into a game before the season ends

Antonio Garay (San Diego Chargers)

Chargers re-signed NT Antonio Garay to a two-year contract.
One of the league's top run-pluggers in 2010, Garay's effectiveness waned in his age-32 season. He's started 28 of 32 games the past two years after appearing in just 16 games from 2003-2009. The Chargers did not make it a priority to sign Garay early on because 2010 fifth-rounder Cam Thomas played well in a rotational role last year.

Donnie Jones (Houston Texans)

Texans agreed to terms with P Donnie Jones on a one-year contract.
Jones, who turns 32 before the season, spent the last five year punting for the Rams. His 2011 net average of 37.0 ranked 31st in the league and was the worst of Jones' tenure in St. Louis. Texans incumbent punter, Brett Hartmann, is coming off a torn ACL and facing a three-game suspension to open the year.

Anthony Hargrove (Green Bay Packers)

Packers agreed to terms with DL Anthony Hargrove, formerly of the Saints.
Hargrove, 28, has been primarily an interior pass rusher in recent seasons, but the Packers will likely give him a look as a right end in the role once filled by Cullen Jenkins. The Packers can't count on Mike Neal after a four-game PEDs suspension, and C.J. Wilson and Jarius Wynn are "just guys." Hargrove can get after the quarterback when his head is on straight. The Packers remain interested in DL Dave Tollefson, who is visiting on Thursday.

Anthony Bitetto (Nashville Predators)

The Nashville Predators have agreed to a two-year, entry-level contract with Anthony Bitetto.
The sixth-round pick of the Predators in 2010 just finished his second season with Northeastern University, where he picked up four goals, 11 assists and 34 penalty minutes in 34 games.

Broncos re-signed OLB/DE Jason Hunter

Broncos re-signed OLB/DE Jason Hunter.
Hunter was limited primarily to special teams last season following the arrival of rookie sensation Von Miller. He has appeared in all 32 games with Denver the past two seasons, and will continue to pinch in as a backup pass rusher.

Steven Pearce (New York Yankees)

Yankees signed 1B Steven Pearce to a minor league contract.
Pearce was released by the Twins this week after collecting just two hits in 15 at-bats this spring. He's expected to open the season with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Zach Duke (Washington Nationals)

Nationals signed LHP Zach Duke to a minor league contract.
Duke was released by the Astros this week after allowing 10 runs over 3 1/3 innings this spring. The 28-year-old left-hander will likely open the season in the Triple-A Syracuse rotation.

Jason Jaramillo (Milwaukee Brewers)

Brewers signed C Jason Jaramillo to a minor league contract.
Jaramillo was released by the Cubs earlier this week. The 29-year-old backstop has a .235/.293/.327 batting line over 366 plate appearances in the big leagues and will presumably serve as depth at the Triple-A level.

Greg Pateryn (Montreal Canadiens)

Montreal has signed prospect Greg Pateryn to a two-year contract.
He posted 15 points and 65 penalty minutes in 41 contests from the back end with the University of Michigan in 2011-12. Pateryn was originally a fifth-round pick of Toronto in 2008, but he was acquired by the Canadiens as part of the Mikhail Grabovski trade.

Devin Thomas (Chicago Bears)

Bears signed WR Devin Thomas to a one-year contract.
Thomas has been a bust as the former 34th overall pick in the draft, but he made some big special teams plays during the Giants' Super Bowl run last year. Thomas is still only 25 years old and ran 4.32, 4.34 at the 2008 Scouting Combine at 6-foot-2, 215. We wouldn't rule out Thomas developing receiver skills, but his early-career track record certainly isn't promising.

Phillies signed INF-OF Joe Thurston to a minor league contract

Phillies signed INF-OF Joe Thurston to a minor league contract.
Thurston was just released by the Astros on Wednesday morning. The 32-year-old isn't a candidate for the major league roster and is likely to open the season with either Double-A Reading or Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Jason Zucker (Minnesota Wild)

Jason Zucker has agreed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Minnesota Wild.
Zucker had 22 goals and 46 points in 38 contests with the University of Denver this season. He is projected to play in his first NHL contest on Thursday. "In college, he was a first-line player who scored goals," Wild GM Chuck Fletcher said. "I hope there's elements of both of that in his game, but time will tell. He can shoot the puck, he skates well and he's got a strong work ethic. But right now he's a 20-year-old prospect who's got a lot to learn."

Manny Lawson (Cincinnati Bengals)

Free agent OLB Manny Lawson is telling teammates that he has agreed to terms with the Bengals.
Lawson drew light interest from the Packers, Colts, and Raiders, but not enough to be lured away from the Queen City. An early-down strong-side linebacker with little pass-rushing ability, Lawson is an asset in coverage and run support.

Yankees signed DH Jack Cust to a minor league contract

Yankees signed DH Jack Cust to a minor league contract.
Cust was released by the Astros on Tuesday after battling an elbow injury while collecting just one hit in 25 at-bats this spring. His power has faded a bit over the past couple of years, but he still knows how to draw a walk. The 33-year-old will serve as insurance at the Triple-A level.

Brandon Jacobs (San Francisco 49ers)

49ers agreed to terms with Brandon Jacobs, formerly of the Giants, on a one-year contract.
Jacobs is joining Randy Moss and former Giants teammate Mario Manningham as offensive additions in San Francisco. The 49ers will remain a run-dominant offense, with Jacobs perhaps handling the majority of the short-yardage and goal-line work, putting a dent in Frank Gore's fantasy value. Should Gore miss time, though, the more explosive Kendall Hunter would remain the back to own. Anthony Dixon appears to be the odd man out of the backfield picture.

Cartier Martin (Washington Wizards)

Wizards will re-sign G/F Cartier Martin to a 10-day contract.
Martin was lighting up the D-League to the tune of 18.3 points per game on 55.6 percent shooting. He also ripped up the Chinese Basketball Association for 26.3 points per night in 30 games during the lockout. Martin will likely replace Edwin Ubiles as depth on the roster.
