PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100 down to four unsigned players
 
Israel Idonije’s departure to Detroit leaves just four unsigned members of PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100:

Defensive lineman Richard Seymour (No. 42).

Defensive end John Abraham (No. 43).

Linebacker Nick Barnett (No. 89).

Offensive guard Brandon Moore (No. 97).

Seymour, as we noted earlier Tuesday, told SiriusXM NFL Radio there’s no new news on whether he will land with the Falcons. He’s spent the last four seasons in Oakland, which is rebuilding.

Abraham, whom the Falcons released in March, remains an above-average pass rusher. Barnett (112 tackles in 2012 for Buffalo) has the ability to play in 3-4 and 4-3 schemes. Moore, the long-time Jets lineman, graded out fourth-best among offensive guards in Pro Football Focus’ 2012 rankings.

Combined, these four players have combined to start 598 regular-season games.

So yes, there are some proven veterans still on the market. But there’s one less of them with the versatile Idonije joining the Lions.

What LB position did Nick Barnett play in the 3-4? If he could play the Sam position I could see adding him... Right now that position is just Martez and Chase Thomas. I have faith in those two, but maybe a little more depth and experience would be good.

He's best suited at ILB in a 3-4 right now. He's a major liability at OLB. He has lost a step at his age (maybe due to a major knee injury a few years ago). He allowed a 130 QB Rating when he was passed on last year. Yuk. We have guys on our roster already that can, at the very least, give what he can give. I'll take a pass on him.
