Cornerbacks

NFL FREE AGENCY: MARKET REPORT




Which players will provide the returns of a summer blockbuster? And who are the potential big-money flops that will bring to mind Alexander (the movie, not the running back)? Vinnie Iyer rolls credits on the 2005 free agent class by positions.
• QB: Will Chargers move Brees?
• RB: Stocked with franchise backs
• WR: The fight to get Plax
• TE: Is Bubba Franks available?
• OL: Plenty of solid veterans
• DL: Is Pryce right in Denver?
• LB: Big names, bigger questions
• CB: Fight for the Law
• S: Darius could be moved
• Spec.: "Idiot kicker" for hire


Featured attraction: Fred Smoot, Redskins. Though Smoot still is learning the nuances of coverage and needs to play with more control, his natural skills are very attractive.


Also starring: Andre Dyson, Titans. With his burst and ball skills, he has developed into one of the league's steadiest cover corners.


Right for any part: Gary Baxter, Ravens. He has settled in as a top-flight corner because of his size (6-2, 215) and agility. He also can excel at free safety for a team that won't lean on him in run support.


Rising star: Ken Lucas, Seahawks. He still is trying to convert his athleticism into savvy play in coverage, but he's a solid starting corner.


Lower-budget option: Anthony Henry, Browns. His ball skills are outstanding, and he will make some big plays. But a team will have to live with the big plays he gives up.


Market update: With the Patriots having cut star cornerback Ty Law, several teams have reportedly expressed major interest. Expect Law to be one of the most high-profile free agent signings.

I said it before I\'ll say it again... Brees stays in San Diego, which is where I reside now. Its his job to lose.
