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.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ QB: Will Chargers move Brees?
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ RB: Stocked with franchise backs
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ WR: The fight to get Plax
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ TE: Is Bubba Franks available?
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ OL: Plenty of solid veterans
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ DL: Is Pryce right in Denver?
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ LB: Big names, bigger questions
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ CB: Fight for the Law
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ S: Darius could be moved
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¢ Spec.: "Idiot kicker" for hire
Featured attraction: Donovin Darius, Jaguars. The premier intimidator and run defender at the position, he brings attitude and toughness to a secondary.
Latest update: The Jaguars tagged Darius their franchise player for the third consecutive off-season.
Also starring: Kenoy Kennedy, Broncos. He is the cheaper, equally hard-hitting alternative to Darius at strong safety.
Rising star: Dwight Smith, Buccaneers. He already is adept at covering receivers inside, and his run support will improve with experience.
Fading star: Sammy Knight, Dolphins. His limited speed and coverage skills hamper the big-play flair he once had.
Front office bomb: Idrees Bashir, Colts. He looks the part but hasn't produced. Overall, he has no outstanding skills.
