Now that we've ventured past the immediate deluge of free agent signings, the second phase will become more deliberate.

Veterans can check out the facilities, meet coaches and take physicals as they work toward new contracts. Many players will visit multiple locales while they make a decision about their football future.

Here is a rundown of some of the notable visits:

»The Miami Dolphins hosted former Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Tarvaris Jackson on Thursday, the team announced. The Dolphins' previous backup signal-caller, Matt Moore, re-signed with Miami on Friday, per the organization. Michael Crabtree visited Miami on Thursday as well.

» Ex-Cowboys pass rusher Anthony Spencer has a meeting lined up with the Seahawks, Rapoport reported. Spencer posted 11 sacks in 2012, but only a half sack last season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee in 2013.

» Jets GM Mike Maccagnan clarified Thursday that Osi Umenyiora's visit to the Jets facility on Wednesday was just to say hello to coach Todd Bowles and wasn't an official free agent meeting.
