View Full Version : Free Agents in 2006

12-12-2005, 10:08 PM
Here is a list of all the free agents for 2006, assuming no one signs contract extensions or a new contract before the end of the year. The projected salary cap for next year is $92-$95 million for each team, and we've included what each team's salary cap mark will be assuming they do not resign, cut, or trade anyone, so you can get an idea of which teams will have available money for signing free agents or teams that will be short on money and likely have to cut more people. The players are listed by team and position and include the number of years they've been in the league, an arbitrary level of interest that teams will likely have in them, and their free agency status (restricted or unrestricted). Cadahnic and/or Coach C will be online tomorrow morning to break down the list with free agent that will likely resign with their teams or be released.

I do not guarantee the complete accuracy of this list as I got the information off of various websites, but it shows the players that could be available to us in this offseason. With that, I plan to go to bed and leave it to cadahnic and coach c to expand on this list tomorrow with their opinions.

12-12-2005, 10:37 PM
Very nice work, appreciated as always. My opinion from skimming over the list of who I would like our front office to persue. (If one is signed, we stop persuing the others at that position. I am not saying I want all of them. I will but in bold the ones I would like to really see on our team next year.

Ashworth on NE is pretty good right?

Maybe he could come in and be our RT

12-13-2005, 08:02 AM
Good Post!!
Awesome research!

Did anyone else notice how few OLineman were on the list? Teams seem to get good lineman and hang on to them!

Finding good linemen is like a needle in the haystack.

No, but you certainly are right about that.

Good idea, thanks. I thought about posting it here but I figured I'd put it in the bull pen first so more people would actually see it and then you guys could move it to wherever you deemed appropriate.

I did one last year about this same time and it was on my "to do list" to search for a complete list....so in reality thank you.

Well done once again.

Mork here is the rest of the thread. This is a look at some FAs that could find other places and might be of interest to the Texans. The main guys that I would look at are Steve Hutchinson, LeCharles Bentley, Chris Baker, Teyo Johnson, Peerless Price, and Rod Garder. The latter of this list would be only if Gaffney leaves. I think Gaffney has T.J. Housh type of potential if used in the right way.

New England
David Givens WR- solid receiver who should get a decent run in free agency
Tom Ashworth OT- veteran tackle that has played many line positions on a winning team
Chad Scott CB- veteran tweener that can play corner or FS
Seth McKinney C- the younger brother who has started at center his whole career
Sage Rosenfals QB- a solid back up quarterback
Lance Shulters S- veteran safety that may not be released, but will get a run in FA if he gets free of Miami
Trey Teague C- solid center that could be brought in for competition, doubt he gets free of Buffalo
Mario Haggan LB- young athletic linebacker that will be kept in buffalo for cheap
John Abraham DE/OLB- Pro-bowler that could be signed or franchised again, could be used as possible trade bait
Chris Baker TE- young blocking/receiving TE that could prove useful to any team
Antwaan Randle El WR- fast WR and return threat, doubt he will leave Pitt, but he could be asking for more than he is worth, a glorified slot receiver
Ike Taylor CB- solid CB, which could add depth to any team
Chris Hope S- good FS who is athletic, can cover, and will hit
Antonio Bryant WR- young receiver that has talent, but has displayed attitude problems
L.J. Shelton OT- young tackle that could provide depth or even a starter at the RT spot
Aaron Shea TE- proven TE that will likely be the odd man out in Cleveland a solid blocker and underrated receiver
Andra Davis LB- a young solid LB that is a tackling machine fast enough to play OLB in a 4-3 and a solid run stuffer in a 3-4. May not get away from Cleveland, but would definitely be on the radar even though would get a contract similar to Greenwood
Jeremi Johnson FB- solid FB that consistently opens holes for Rudi Johnson also a pass-catching threat
Matt Schobel TE- solid blocking TE and underrated pass catcher will not stretch the defense
Jon Kitna QB- a solid veteran backup that has starting experience
Nate Webster LB- a solid veteran LB more depth for any team
Jamal Lewis RB- Likely will be let go by Baltimore, should have a good year next year and get a solid run in FA
Chester Taylor RB- has really shown his talent this year and will likely be resigned by Baltimore
Anthony Weaver DE- a solid DE that translates well in any defense, much more of a run stopper than pass rusher
Tommy Polley LB- a veteran LB that is still very athletic could be a late FA acquisition for a team or resigned
Chad Williams S- a solid Safety that ball hawks
Will Demps S- a solid SS that enjoys making the big hit
Reggie Wayne WR- big time #2 receiver that will be odd man out in Indy will look for a team he can be #1, could possibly land in Philly
Raheem Brock DE- 7th round pick that has exceeded expectations is a solid starter on a good defense
David Thornton LB- a solid LB that is a solid tackler
Robert Mathis DE- undersized DE that uses his speed to pile up sacks, might translate to an OLB in another system
Vince Manuwai G- solid guard that could provide depth for any team
Mike Pearson OT- a decent RT that has had some injury problems
Akin Ayodele LB- good LB that can play DE or LB, young and athletic
Marcellus Wiley DE- veteran DE that has not gotten back to his level of play in his prime
Jabar Gaffney WR- solid WR, good hands and decent speed, might leave for a larger role, but likely to stay with new system on the horizon
Shantee Orr LB- solid LB that is undersized, but has proven to have good talent
Antwan Peek LB- athletic LB that could play DE makes a lot of mistakes but likely will be back
Justin Hartwig C- a good C that is young and if not resigned could get a good run in FA
Kyle Vanden Bosch DE- veteran that has really come on this year and is leading the league in sacks should be resigned, but Tennessee’s cap situation could let this guy get away
Tank Williams S- hard-hitting athletic safety that will get a good run in FA
Kansas City
Carlos Hall DE-fast, athletic DE that KC will likely resign
San Diego
Jamal Fletcher CB- a decent cover corner who plays quite physical
Courtney Van Buren OT- solid tackle that has played RT and LT
Peerless Price WR- a bust in Atlanta, but a proven #2 guy, could be a solid replacement for Gaffney if he leaves
Dan Campbell TE- solid blocking/receiving TE
Scott Fujita LB- smart LB that succeeds in blitzing and run stopping
Jon Runyan OT- veteran tackle that has performed at a high level for 10 years
N.Y. Giants
Visanthe Shiancoe TE- pass-catching TE that could be looking for brighter horizons
Kendrick Clancy DT- Big run stuffing DT, played well in Pittsburgh and is solid in NY
Will Allen CB- fast corner that can stay with any receiver may be suspect if asked to come up and stop the run
Corey Chavous S- solid veteran safety that enjoys staying up in the box
Terrance Metcalf G- young guard/center that could provide decent depth for any team strong run blocker
Roberto Garza G/C- a good run blocker that started for a year in Atlanta, versatile player
Hunter Hillenmeyer LB- a good young LB that is a big part of Chicago’s improved defense; will likely not get away from Chicago
Jerry Azumah CB- veteran corner that has return abilities
Jeff Backus OT- good OL that has been a solid starter
Green Bay
Mike Flanagan C- good C that has been solid for Green Bay’s underachieving line may not get free from GB
Kevin Barry OT- solid young tackle that has played well every time he gets PT
Aaron Kampman DE- hard working DE that has a non-stop motor, his work ethic make up for a lack of athleticism
Jeff Mitchell C- veteran center that will likely be brought back to the panthers

Will Witherspoon LB- young, fast, athletic LB that would be a solid contributor on any team
Dante Wesley CB- veteran corner that is solid, but unimpressive
Ricky Manning CB- young corner that is solid in coverage and good in run support, was huge in the Panthers SB run
New Orleans
LeCharles Bentley C/G-Pro Bowler at guard and center, rumored not to be happy in NO, but could cost a pretty penny since he is just hitting his prime
Darren Howard DE- athletic pass rushing DE may get free of NO since the emergence of Will Smith
Fakhir Brown CB- solid veteran corner that is decent in coverage
Tampa Bay
Dexter Jackson S- good safety that has played well over his career, not sure if he will be let go or not
Kevin Shaffer OT- undersized tackle that has done well in Alex Gibbs system; has trouble against the bull rush, but is a solid pass protector
Barry Stokes OT- another solid pass-protector, but has a mauler mentality
Antwan Lake DE- young DE that has started to come into his own
Teyo Johnson TE- pass-catching TE that had a falling out with the Raiders, should find a home in FA due to his ability to stretch the defense
St. Louis
Adam Archuleta S- Pro-bowl safety that has played well most of his career, should be resigned by St. Lou
Damione Lewis DT- One-gap DT that has played a two-gap technique and been relatively successful

Rocky Bernard DT- young DT that consistently collapses the pocket will likely be resigned in Seattle
San Francisco
Julian Peterson LB- Pro-Bowl LB that has tons of talent, wants a long term deal and will cost a lot of cap if he hits FA
Brandon Moore LB- solid veteran LB should provide decent depth for any team
Derek M. Smith LB- emerged as a solid middle LB and effective run stopper in the middle of S.F. 3-4 system.

the guys that are in bold are guys that I think will be able to shake free of their teams and could be interesting players in FA. Notably Ricky Manning, Bentley, Witherspoon, and Andra Davis would be great guys to bring in. Doubt we could afford it though, because each would get at least Kailee Wong's deal. Ricky Manning, Bentley, and Andra Davis I think should be seriously looked at though.

12-15-2005, 08:18 PM
Looks like Andra Davis is off the list of free agents, he was just signed to a five year extension. It should be a busy couple weeks for resigning people before the Dec. 31 deadline.

12-15-2005, 08:38 PM
...the Dec. 31 deadline. What deadline would that be?

12-15-2005, 10:30 PM
What deadline would that be?

If a player's contract is running out at the end of the year, their team has until December 31st to resign them otherwise they cannot resign them until the offseason and they would become a free agent, so there should be a decent number of players getting resigned before that deadline.

12-16-2005, 06:47 AM
Teams have until March 2 - the day player contracts expire - to sign or offer tenders to their own players who are scheduled to become free agents in '06. Free agency begins March 3.

Transition and f-tag players have to be designated about a week before that.

Coach C.
12-16-2005, 05:29 PM
AJ, Mork was speaking of the fact that you cannot make signings after Dec. 31st until the offseason begins. Meaning that when the season offiicially ends then they can be resigned.

12-18-2005, 12:33 AM
A team can re-sign/extend its own players who are due to become free agents at any time up until their contracts expire on March 2. There is no December 31 deadline.

January and early Feb are usually quite busy for teams signing street free agents, including players who they have carried on their practice squads during the year. In mid to late Feb the action peaks when NFLE assignments are completed, f-tags and transition tags are made, and some players with larger and more complex contracts and/or the requried tenure, e.g. Gaffney, are finally either re-signed or allowed to explore free agency.

In addition to March 2 being the deadline for teams to re-sign their own players due to become UFAs, it is also the deadline for: a) teams to make a minimum salary offer to retain exclusive negotiating rights for players with fewer than three years of service whose contracts have expired (exclusive rights free agents)....and b) submission of qualifying offers to RFAs whose contracts have expired and to whom the team desires to retain a right of first refusal.

Does anybody know about Ricky Manning JR? Apart from the game where he shut down McNabb, I haven't heard anything about him.

01-09-2006, 01:25 PM
I would love to get Manning here as our 2nd CB, but I'm not sure that will happen. He is young, athletic, and can cover people, plus he is not afraid to get in there and hit someone.

What's the deal with Philip Buchanan? He really is a good D-Back ...lots of speed and potential. I was actually excited about having him and Dunta on the corners. Any word on how his rehab is coming?

02-10-2006, 10:44 AM
none of those free agents would even consider signing with the Texans, the texans are horrible, you better hope bush isn't a bust.

Anything positive to add to the general discussion on these boards?

02-10-2006, 11:14 AM
DE Kyle Vanden Bosch 4 Med UFA

this guy's intruiging but I'd be wary of him coming off of a 1 year contract and thus being in a "contract year" if you get my meaning.

02-10-2006, 12:56 PM

Positive and texans dont go together.

02-10-2006, 01:01 PM
Bart Scott and Chad Williams are two players I would seriously consider and both should come at a fairly cheap price.

02-10-2006, 01:01 PM

02-10-2006, 01:07 PM
Positive and Philly don't go together.

8291 days, 14 hours, 3 minutes, and 35 seconds have passed since a major Philadelphia sports team won a championship!

16482 days, 13 hours, 4 minutes, and 16 seconds have passed since the Eagles won a championship!


02-14-2006, 04:39 PM
A good cheap LBer in the 43 mold would be ***(( OLB Keith Adams ))***.He has talent and could be plugged into the starting lineup.Philidelphia Eagles

They keep leaving him out there but he ends up in starting lineup when the season starts..:stirpot:

Speedy little tackling machine!I didn't see him on the FA list at first.The Eagles rotate there LBers to keep there numbers down and out of the radar!

02-25-2006, 07:22 PM
Plummer is to brittle and doesn't make a lot of plays.

03-03-2006, 04:19 AM
C/G LeCharles Bentley

Time to scratch this name off the list...

The Eagles will have to wait a few more days, but it appears as if their first big free-agent signing of the off-season is going to be LeCharles Bentley, the Pro Bowl center from the New Orleans Saints.

According to a source close to the center, Bentley's interest in joining the Eagles is so strong that only the delay in the free-agency period prevented the move from happening today.

Never was much of a possibility for us IMO, but was great to think & talk about.
