Martellus Bennett - Patriots
DeSean Jackson - Eagles
Terelle Pryor - Browns
TJ Lang - Seahawks
Nick Perry - Packers
Trumaine Johnson - Rams

Wishlist:
1. OT

3. OG


The Hawks just put out an ad on Craigslist to all those who are 300 plus lbs & can hold their own.

Won´t happen... Maybe Jamaal Charles stays healthy, his trade value is currently on a low level.

Raiders need a consistent inside pass rush & some linebackers & maybe some DB's.
Not sure if were keeping L. Murray or not.

I hate seeing the guy leave... but take a look at Ron Leary. Not sure what he's looking for (made $2.55M last year) but dude is solid at Guard. He's going to improve someone's O-Line.

My (first) choices...

Barry Church - Cowboys

Feel free to put in any other interesting FA´s and your opinion regarding their next steps...


Here are the Cowboys UFA's... with positions, age and 2016 salaries;
Brandon Carr CB 30 $10,020,000
Rolando McClain ILB 27 $4,000,000
Morris Claiborne CB 26 $3,000,000
Ron Leary G 27 $2,553,000
Barry Church SS 28 $2,206,750
Mark Sanchez QB 30 $2,000,000
Andrew Gachkar OLB 28 $1,750,000
Darren McFadden RB 29 $1,500,000
Lance Dunbar RB 26 $1,250,000
Jack Crawford DE 28 $1,100,000
Gavin Escobar TE 25 $1,052,623
Terrell McClain DT 28 $1,016,667
Justin Durant ILB 31 $965,000
Joshua Thomas CB 27 $760,000
Terrance Williams WR 27 $724,243
Kellen Moore QB 27 $710,000
J.J. Wilcox FS 27 $702,767
Brice Butler WR 26 $556,875

Church is the one Cowboy I look at and think they will make every effort to keep. He's a leader and called the secondary plays on defense. Marinelli trusts the guy.

They may also take a flyer on talking Carr out of retiring. Had his best year and is one of the quality guys you want in the locker room.

I'm mixed on Claiborne. Dude was OK this season when he was healthy. That's his problem. He's rarely healthy.

As noted above - Leary is gone. He's going to get paid and deservedly so.

Cowboys are kind of foolish to let Leary walk away in free agency. They should keep him around and groom Collins to replace an aging Free.

Dallas is over the cap. Even by releasing or trading Romo (19 mil in dead money) they'd still be over. Not a whole lot of wiggle room. On top of that, Leary should get a pretty good payday on the market. Due to their current cap situation, they could end up losing quite a few guys this off-season. Claiborne, Carr, Church, T. Williams, McClain among others. This breaks it down.

I feel like Alshon Jeffery is definitely out in CHI. I agree that he could go to the Eagles, I could also see someone like Tennessee picking him up.

I also think the Panthers do whatever it takes to retain Short, that man is a monster. Carolina's d-line could be formidable in the near future.

The Jaguars still have a ton of caption (possibly the most in the league still) so I expect them to try and make a splash or two. I expect they will try for one of the OL guys (Wagner, Zeiter, Leary, or Lang) and I could also see Coughlin trying to bring JPP down to Florida.

I don't know how much money the Texans have but I hope we look into alshon

I don't wana do what we did to Andre to deandre...if we signed martellus and alshon I would be estatic and we could focus on o line and maybe a defensive back in the draft

You don't want them to draft a QB?

Needs: CB, Pass rusher, WR, Center

Ravens need a playmaker whether on offense or defense so I'm hoping we make a big splash. Would love Alshon Jeffrey or DeSean Jackson maybe Britt.

Man... you don't want Jackson. Jeffery or Britt... yeah. Jackson is a seriously big bag of hollow stats who is on the down slope.

Keep hearing Desean Jackson back to the Eagles. Wentz could sure use some help. Probably had the worst WR's in the league last season.
