Rolle likely wants to latch on with a team that has the ability to contend. Rolle is 33 years old and given his position and professional experience, he doesn't likely have many more years in that body. He only appeared in seven games last season, but prior to that, he appeared in at least 15 games every year dating back to 2006.
Skuta was arrested for battery and the woman claimed that Skuta shoved her head against a glass window after she wouldn't give him her phone number.

Jacksonville will continue to investigate before making a decision.
A wise athlete once said that once you begin to think about retirement, you must retire. The fact that Davis already made the decision to quit the sport once doesn't bode well for his future as an NFL player. The love for the game just doesn't seem to be at the level needed in order to compete at the highest form.
Wallace has been in the league since 2009 so it's certainly something to hear him say that he's finally polished the rest of his game in what will be his eighth NFL season. Wallace caught just 39 passes last year for the Vikings which was certainly a disappointment for anybody who drafted him after his 10 touchdown season for the Dolphins in 2014. Wallace will offer a downfield threat for the Ravens offense and Joe Flacco certainly has the arm to get him the ball so it will be interesting to see what kind of chemistry they develop as we head in to the 2016 season.
This is not surprising, as most superstars in the NFL, especially running backs, usually don't play until week 3 of the preseason anyway. Coming off of a severe knee injury that cut his season short in 2015, Bell will look to bounce back and recreate some of that magic he had in 2014 in which he rushed for 1,361 yards, eight touchdowns, and caught 83 receptions for 854 yards and three receiving touchdowns.
It has to be difficult to understand the wear and tear a football player endures in the NFL. But Calvin Johnson contends his desire to be retired is not fueled by a lack of playoff appearances or wins or losses, he was beat up. Johnson hauled in 731 passes in his career for 11,619 yards with 83 touchdowns for Detroit. In a recent interview, he reiterated his desire to stay retired and while fans are hopeful for a return, Johnson contends he is satisfied in retirement.
Harrison has been appearing all over social media for his vigorous work outs but his name was mentioned in the AL-Jazeera American report. Harrison was always a joy to watch and it would be a real shame if he was/is a PED user. Three Packers players were also suspected of usage and will be interview. Mike Neal, Julius Peppers, Clay Matthews, and Harrison will all be questioned regarding the report.
Higgins was a monster in college. He played at Colorado State and in 2014, he lead the nation in both yards and receiving touchdowns. He was also a finalist for the Biletnikoff award, which is for the most outstanding receiver in college. But he's not in college anymore, the NFL is a different animal. He's 6'2 and only 190, he should probably be around 200-205 pounds.
