Denver Broncos: Still looking to fill the void left by the trading of star RB Clinton Portis, the team will bring in RB Garrison Hearst for a workout today. The Broncos were interested in signing Charlie Garner, but Hearst will become the first free-agent tailback to visit Denver since the Portis trade. "Garrison has followed the situation there closely because one of his former teammates at Georgia did pretty well in Denver," Hearst's agent, Pat Dye Jr., told the Denver Post, referring to Terrell Davis. "It would be an attractive situation for him. We'll see how the visit goes and take it from there." Hearst does have some injury concerns. He underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in November and has had some lingering discomfort in his knee. The Broncos' doctors will put him through a physical to determine how soon he will be able to come back.

New York Giants: The team is scooping the free-agent market for a nickel back, and it may get one with Super Bowl credentials. The New York Post reports the Giants are expected to host former Carolina Panthers CB Terry Cousin today. Cousin, who was released by Carolina earlier this month, lost his starting job last season to Ricky Manning, Jr. The 29-years-old Cousin is a seven-year veteran who has played for the Bears, Falcons and Dolphins as well. Cousin visited with the Bills Tuesday.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Owner Wayne Weaver made a vow to bring in only "high character" players this offseason, but that declaration may have taken a hit Tuesday. According to the Florida Times-Union, the Jags signed CB Juran Bolden. The seven-year veteran is facing a felony charge in for possession of a stolen vehicle. Bolden also was charged with misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of marijuana in the same incident. But the Jags don't seem too concerned with Bolden's legal issues and signed him to a two-year, $3.9 million contract that includes a $600,000 signing bonus. There also is a team option for three more seasons.
