Rolle tops FA list

11. SS Kenoy Kennedy Broncos - Somewhat surprising the Broncos haven't tried a lot harder to keep him since he is such a physical presence in the interior secondary. A physical, sure tackler, only modest coverage skills.

Projected landing spot: Atlanta, New Orleans, Oakland.

14. FS/CB Dwight Smith Bucs - Great natural cover instincts, superb burst to the ball, nice hands. Began career as a "nickel" corner, switched to safety in 2003, hopes to move back outside with a new team.

Projected landing spot: New Orleans, Detroit, Minnesota.

21. OT Fred Miller Titans - There are quite a few teams who feel he has broken down and doesn't have a lot left. On the flipside, he has enough suitors, and plays the right position, to make himself a lot of money.

Projected landing spot: New Orleans, St. Louis.

Good article on all free-agents!!

Rest

I would be speechless if we were even to sign even just one of these guys, especially if it were for a mid/long term contract...

It would show that the team recognizes that it does need help in these key areas, and by helping..I mean more than just moving the back up player one spot in the Depth chart..and signung some no name guy to play back up..

I just hope Has and crew can be shown that the team that we have now, the one built by Jim for Jim, isn\'t going to achieve anything more than an 8-8 record, and that the ONLY way to revive this Franchise is to sign key players through F.A. first...and not rely soley on the draft to fill holes...or obtain back ups..

You and me both.
I\'m afraid I\'ve gone and done it. I have gotten my hopes up and will be officially crushed as they all sign elsewhere.

I\'ve heard Rolle will sign with washington for a 15 million dollar signing bonus.

i think they will sign a veteran OT avoiding putting an unproven youngster there. miller isn\'t a prize. reminds me of gandy... get him for a year then he starts getting old on ya. but he is serviceable nonetheless. that would put full draft focus on the d side of the ball.

next most likely i think a safety will be acquired with the likely departure of t-buck. bellamy and nobody is pretty weak LOL. who they get there, i dont have a clue.

the jags are openly shopoing darius. howard for him and a pick would be fine by me.

i have read n.o. has made contact with jason feruson dt too. dont have much of a read on him cept one article that said he looks like a take-the-money-and-get-fat type.

and we figured antonio pierce would be a good fit too.

I hate you for posting this lol. I always told myself there is no way we would sign any free agents like this, but the possibility of doing so is causing me to get my hopes up again and more than likely we will notsign any of them or put up much of a fight to get them

Reads like a Christmas wish list, don\'t it? I was sad to see New Orleans wasn\'t listed as a possible landing pad for players like Andre Dyson, Antonio Pierce or Kareem McKenzie. Not that I expected much, but...

Think he\'s already old. I\'m not convinced this guy is really much of an upgrade. As per usual with FA OT\'s, he\'ll probably pull down far more than he\'s worth.

he looks like a take-the-money-and-get-fat type
Yeah, and we sure need a few more of those...

Kenoy would be nice. Dwight Smith would be also. Miller??? Lots of teams think he\'s broken down? We\'ll sign him to a 6 year 67 million dollar contract. Watch - you\'ll see. Oh, and we won\'t even contact Kennedy or Smith.
