After one month of 2012 NFL free agency, only one player from QMI Agency's Top 10 lists of available players on offence and defence remains on the market.

That would be the sole restricted free agent of the bunch, Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace.

He's a superstar, so it's not like there's no interest in him out there.

But because Wallace is a restricted free agent, any team that might sign him before next week's deadline Friday at 11:59 p.m. EDT would owe the Steelers its first-round draft pick in this month's draft.

Steep price. Too steep, probably.

If any team does make an offer to Wallace, the Steelers would have five days to match it in order to keep him.

DENVER DUMPING

The Denver Broncos dumped starting cornerback Andre Goodman on Friday.

The 33-year-old had started all but eight games over the past three seasons for Denver. He would have earned $4.62 million this season, according to ProFootballTalk.com.

The Broncos signed former Saint Tracy Porter last month, and he'll likely fill Goodman's starting role. Although, Porter is one of the players who could be suspended for a few games in the bounty scandal.

FRIDAY SIGNINGS

Linebacker London Fletcher agreed to terms with the Redskins, breaking the news via Twitter late in the day: "Redskin fans your captain is back!" ... The Dolphins signed free agent outside linebacker Gary Guyton, formerly of the Patriots, according to the Miami Herald ... The Patriots re-signed centre Dan Koppen to a reported two-year, $6-million deal.

SCHEDULE SOON

Although no announcement has been made, expect the NFL to release its schedule next week. The draft is the following week. Advance notice will be given, a league publicist says.
