A Look At FreeAgents: Inside Linebacker!

Bruschi, Tedy UFA Patriots
Campbell, Khary UFA Redskins
Gilbert, Tony UFA Jaguars
Godfrey, Randall UFA Redskins
Hagler, Tyjuan RFA Colts
Izzo, Larry UFA Patriots
Kassell, Brad UFA Jets
Koutouvides, Niko UFA Seahawks
Lehman, Teddy UFA Lions
Navies, Hannibal UFA 49ers
Reynolds, Robert UFA Titans
Seward, Adam RFA Panthers
Smith, Mike RFA Ravens
Thomas, Dontarrious UFA Vikings
Thompson, Chaun UFA Browns
Trotter, Jeremiah UFA Buccaneers

Well, given the amount of money teams now have to spend....I really see this as point of intrest heading into the draft. Nothing really screams "sexy" to me on this list.

Re: A Look At FreeAgents: Inside Linebacker!

There's not one unrestricted free agent linebacker that appeals to me this offseason. Michael Boley, a RFA of Atlanta, is a player I'm high on and willing to surrender a mid round draft pick for.

Actually Larry Izzo is a very appealing option for our special teams giving how poorly our coverage has been the last couple of years. That would be a very underrated and key addition.

Bingo paz. ILB are draft material and OLB is FA material. Check the listing on OLB and it is much better.

Slim pickin's is right, we'll get one in the draft 3rd round and also pick up a good OLB in Free Agency and several in the draft.

Niko Koutouvide, Seahawks Please sign him, he played at Purdue with Drew. He from HARD HITT'IN New Britian CT.
Mark my words he'll be a great MLB. Hard to get playing time behind Lofa. My 2 cents

Good point. I have to do some reading on him.

sorry I do not see a LB in round 3 worth taking.

Add
Jan 2 David Hutchinson, of the Star-Ledger, reports New York Jets LB Victor Hobson is expected to test the free agent market this offseason. He will be an unrestricted free agent.
