After the Free Agency Frenzy

After the Free Agency Frenzy

NFL players don't always get a quality second (or third) chance. That wasn't the case for these guys.

1. Like Travis Henry in Denver last year, Keary Colbert is getting a dream opportunity to put up numbers. Let's hope Colbert doesn't celebrate by testing positive on every drug and paternity test he takes this summer.

Expect Denver to find more competition for Colbert than Brandon Stokley, but he's the favorite for now to start opposite Brandon Marshall.

2. Devery Henderson is getting one more chance to disappoint the New Orleans Saints. If he can't get it done in that offense, he's not going to elsewhere.

3. Donte Stallworth is on his fourth team in as many years, which is usually a bad sign. But Cleveland is an ideal fit because of Derek Anderson's deep ball and the weapons around Stallworth. He works best as a complementary part, and will be the third option on most plays. Look for a bump from his New England numbers, but he's not going to be a 1,000-yard receiver.

4. The odds are against Brian Griese ever mattering to fantasy leaguers again. But if it's going to happen, it's going to happen with Jon Gruden.

This Week in Jason David

Last year, the Saints signed a marginal cornerback with championship experience, and then shoehorned him into a system that didn't fit his skills. That didn't work out so well, but it did become a weekly segment in The Morning After .

After learning from the experience, this year the Saints signed a marginal cornerback with championship experience, and will try to shoehorn him into a new system that exposes his flaws. Randall Gay will only be a decent signing if the Saints expect him to come off the bench.

Crickets

D.J. Hackett's price tag and durability questions are scaring away potential suitors. He's expected to talk to the Titans and possibly Redskins this week, but he may have to lower his contract demands.

Bad Tidings

Detroit and New Orleans have been actively looking for running backs in the free agent market. That doesn't bode well for Kevin Jones and Deuce McAllister's status heading into next year. The Saints re-signed Aaron Stecker, possibly setting up a release of McAllister in the summer. The Bucs also have been active, indicating that they want more options behind Earnest Graham.

Re: After the Free Agency Frenzy

Stallworth was bumped from the #3 option with the Pats by Gaffney, that can't bode well for his career, although I wish him nothing but success with the Browns.
