Players currently not on our team (UFA)

Here's a list of key players that are now Unrestricted Free Agents.
It means they are not on our team yet.

TE Ben Watson
TE M Hoomanawanui

S Raphael Bush
DT Kevin Williams
RB Tim Hightower


Here are some key RFA's (we'll likely keep)
OG Kelemete
OG Lelito
RB Robinson
TE Hill

Looks like we need a TE or two, and OG ain't looking so hot either.

Re: Players currently not on our team (UFA)

I think Watson and Hooman should definitely be brought back, Hooman is a great blocker and its obvious that Ben is still a very good player.

Hightower - he proved he can be a lead back in the NFL, that might make another team pick him up seen as our Backfield will get crowded with Ingram back.

I personally don't think we'll keep Josh Hill, Payton branded him like a HOFer going into the season and he ended the season with about 10-20 catches?

I think Kevin Williams comes back, besides Cam Jordan he was our most consistent D Lineman, he blocked a couple of field goals/ PAT's

Loved how Kevin Williams played in the middle. He was not the problem with our failure to stop runs up the middle.

A parade at TE and PK is a lock! I quit counting at 26 TE's (on the final roster) since Payton arrived. PK Carney, Mare, Gramatica, Mehlhalff, Hartley, Kasay, Graham, Hocker, Forbath. I think that's all.

I have not seen anything from Kelemete and Lelito to make me Think they can be more than backups. I hope we can keep them as such since they know the system already.
I was expecting Hill to have a breakout season but that kinda ended with the emergence of Watson.

It should be noted that we ranked last against runs to left end and left tackle. We were better up the middle than we were against runs to the left. That kinda surprised me.

Lelito was better on the RT side than he was on the LT.

That's not saying much but I agree.

Lelito is very good at right guard. He put in above average performances there when he's manned that spot.
