Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com reports that center Ryan Wendell's free agent market has been cold thus far, as the former Patriot has yet to visit any other clubs this offseason.

Aaron Wilson also reports that the Baltimore Ravens also have interest in LeGarrette Blount, although no visit is scheduled for this time.
