NFL Free Agents: The Best Of the Rest


Teams have been quiet in fe agency of late, but there are a few big name players that could help out some squads out there. Here are the best of the rest.

John Abraham DE ATL – Any team that is looking for a little extra help in the pass rush should look in Abraham’s direction. He still has some gas left in the tank and could get some pressu on quarterbacks.. Rumors have him linked to the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots.

Cedric Benson RB GB – Benson only had 246 yards in 5 games last season before getting injured. He has hit that magical age of 30 where everyone wonders if he has anything left.

Brandon Lloyd WR NE – 911 yards and 4 touchdowns with the Patriots last season and was released. He has a reputation of being a bad locker room guy, but is the best receiver available.

Vonta Leach FB BAL – Leach is the best pure fullback in the game, but the position is getting outdated. If a team is looking to have a power running game, then Leach would be a solid addition. Rumors have him linked to the Miami Dolphins and New York Giants.

Willis McGahee RB DEN – 700+ yards with the Broncos and helped lead the team to the playoffs the last two seasons. His injury has kept teams away, but someone should give him a chance at some point.

Brandon Moore G JETS – Moore is known for the butt in the butt fumble. He should be known as one of the better guards in the game though. He still hasn’t found a new job. He could be starting for a few teams in the league.

Richard Seymour DT OAK – Seymour has a ton of experience in the middle of the defensive line and sill can cause havoc. He still wants a nice payday. Rumors have him linked to Atlanta Falcons or New Orleans Saints.

Michael Turner RB ATL – Another runningback that is over the hill, but still can produce in the right situation. He had 800 yards and 10 touchdowns last season and can be a nice short yardage player and a good backup runningback.

Eric Winston T KC – A solid right tackle that can be a starter for a few teams in the league. The Lions could be interested in his services.

    i like Turner as a backup option in SD, but more likely, if it became necessary, i could see McGahee simply because of the connection to McCoy.
