Does anyone have a list or link to the Free Agents for 2007?

Looking mainly at RB, LB, DB, and O-line.

Very, very sparse at runningback.

It doesn't matter. We won't get anybody.

Very Sparse at many postions we need.

Only ones of interest;

Michael Turner- RB-Chargers (will cost us something if we sign him)
Lance Briggs - LB- Bears (is he that good or does Urlacher make him seem good)
Nate Clement as dunta23 already stated.

Ladell Betts, UFA, Washington Redskins
Correll Buckhalter, UFA, Philadelphia Eagles
Najeh Davenport, UFA, Pittsburgh Steelers
Maurice Hicks, RFA, San Francisco 49ers

I could see us going after these guys. Buckhalter ran over us Week 1, as did Ladell Betts in Week 3. Najeh had a nice run last week, as well as the limited success he saw in Green Bay. I'd ask Vinny about Hicks first, though.

TE Eric Johnson, UFA, San Francisco 49ers
The tight end free agent options are appealing. Johnson tops the list because it is almost absolute that he will be on his way out of San Francisco. The 49ers drafted Vernon Davis early in the first round, and Johnson won’t see the field once Davis proves he’s ready to start and play every down. Davis’ freakish athletic ability will make that a quick process, so Johnson is going to be looking for a new place to play on Sundays. In 2005, Johnson caught 82 passes for 825 yards and a pair of touchdowns, so a team looking for a pass catching tight end will take a chance on Johnson in the hopes that he can repeat that production.

Max Starks RFA Pittsburgh Steelers
Starks is a starting tackle for a Super Bowl champion. That’s enough in itself to get some teams a little excited about the prospects of acquiring him. The fact that Starks is young, talented, and massive in stature—listed at 6’8”, 337 lbs.—just adds to the excitement pile. Another lineman that shouldn’t be going anywhere as the Steelers will not let Starks go without a fight. The best bet is that Starks will decide he wants to stay in Pittsburgh and sign an extension. If he hits the market, there will be a team or two willing to pay a big amount to entice the tackle to relocate.

Derrick Dockery, UFA, Washington Redskins

Lance Briggs, UFA, Chicago Bears
Briggs benefits from having Brian Urlacher as a teammate, but that’s no reason to doubt that Briggs is a really good linebacker in his own right. He may be the most sought after linebacker in this free agent class, and the Bears will have difficulty in retaining all of the defensive talent they have in the next few seasons if they wish to spend more money on offensive help and re-sign other current players. The Bears could slap the franchise tag on Briggs to keep him around, but if they don’t, expect him to be leaving the Windy City and taking up residence for a new team that will try and feature him on defense. Teams needing a tough linebacker to plug holes and make tackles will put Briggs high on their list. Given the Bears history in this type of matter, it’s likely that Briggs will find a new place to punish offenses.

And a guy that can MAKE our defense:
Adalius Thomas, UFA, Baltimore Ravens
It could be difficult to keep Thomas around because of his emerging status as one of the better linebackers in the NFL. Last season, with Ray Lewis lost to an injury for ten games, Thomas shined for the Ravens defensive unit. Credited with 86 total tackles, nine sacks, and a returned touchdown on one of his two interceptions, he boosted his free agent potential and he could be one of the top two or three pursued players if he has a successful ’06 campaign. Someone will throw big dollars his way, which means he could be lured away from Baltimore.

Ken Hamlin, UFA, Seattle Seahawks
Michael Lewis, UFA, Philadelphia Eagles
John Lynch, UFA, Denver Broncos

I thought Minny was out of it when they drafted the strong armed QB from UAB (Travaris Jackson?), but I heard that Childress doesn't think he's "tough enough." Or something like that. Great WR corps up there.
