List of potential UFAs according to NFLPA

The National Football League Players Association annually releases the list of potential unrestricted and restricted free agents coming to market in March. That release comes during the Super Bowl.

Today, the NFLPA released the list. And I have it for you.

Remember this list can change as teams typically try to sign their own players they have targetted prior to the start of free agency. So some players on this list won't hit free agency. But most will.

By the way, many of you have asked for an update on the Brian Hartline negotiations because those talks with the Dolphins wide receiver affect what Miami does both in the draft and free agency at a position of utmost need. I'm told the talks continue. But nothing is imment.

So there's that.

The list by team:

Now I want to draft dee milliner or johnathan banks I'm going MADD

Mayor Koch is dying very sad

Posted by: Nj | January 31, 2013 at 10:59 PM

Yup! They do it all of the time. Except they stick one thumb into the brother's mouth on the left. Then the other thumb up their brother a s s on the right.

Then Omar yells, "SWITCH"! LOL...

Dig it man

I truly dislike Omar Kelly and I don't know why

Gotta go later guys you to Oscar

Islanders win it! I hate those damned Devils. I know, wrong forum.

Okay guys got to go.

ALoco, thanks for mediating. Please get a job in the Senate as I think you may have the skills to get people to.reach across the aisle and actually help our country instead of holding us back with the constant fighting!

YG, I'm happy we were able to come to an agreement, I knew I could wear you down with my charm, no one can resist when I turn it on! :D

Seriously I'm glad we're moving forward and I look forward to getting back to some of the great conversations we used to have.

Is someone already asking m to gang up on people? Noooooooooooo please, I can not, it goes against my code.

But I would take Kris because we don't agree much and he would keep me on my toes.

No one likes Omar at the SS.

anybody check out espn on the rooney rule?????? It's really ugly,worse than here

I tend to snort my own mucus/snot back into my throat and swallow it, usually as a big, juicy gulp down my throat.

I'll bet you do, too. We all eat lots of snot.

Yup, we are on the trail of YG. First of all, we know it's he who disrupts. Second, we also know, by his language, he's a sociopath. Third, as such, he must be using stolen computers and its materials. And so on...

Part of the Anonymous, I guess.

Internet exists(see here) but it's very different from Actual World. It cannot be taken over, as that One can, by force or cleverness and only by high Education. One stylized, well constructed phrase from Us can end anything, including yourselves.

Oh, but you have been apprehended, tried and convicted a long Time ago, only you haven't realized it yet.

Glad to hear they are working on an extension for Hartline. The rest can test the market. It's very possible they could end up costing themselves money by asking for so much and talk themselves right out of town.

Since it's a slow morning here, let me share some Pro Football Focus stats this AM.

Ryan Tannehill was the 2nd highest rated passer in the league when using play action! Matt Ryan's NFL QB rating is 121.5 and Tannehill's is 121.2 when using play action. RG3s is 3rd at 116.2.

Trouble is, Miami only used PA on 15.4% of passing plays. Curiously, of the rookie QBs, Washington used RG3 in PA a whopping 39.9% of the time and Seattle, Russell Wilson, 36.1%.

Further in PA, 6 of 12 Tannehill TDs came on PA and only 1 interception out of the 13 he had for the season. His completion % zooms to 65.8 and his yards/attempt increases to 10.4, 3rd highest in the league.

Hey bill,

GREAT stat my man. I was wondering that too. Especially beginning of the Season when we were running well. I chalked it up to Sherman/Philbin just not having a good sense of utilizing the run game in their offense from their Green Bay days (even though their offenses there worked best when they could move the ball on the ground). Same with getting Tannehill out of the pocket. I get it, they were not trying to kill him, but there seems not be a vision of the future in ANY Dolphins offense (since Marino). Finally, later in the year they opened up and Tannehill made great strides in his game once the handcuffs came off.

Fear and traditional thinking will KILL a football team. I hope Philbin (who has an innovative streak) relies more on that then the traditional approach. And in Year 2, LET TANNEHILL PLAY!!!

Sign Hartline
Sign Starks
Sign Bush
Sign Clemmons

Restructure Patterson and Marshall...

Let the rest walk

FA WR Jennings...TE Keller or Cook...Vet CB....OL Vollmer (Pats)

Draft...WR..DE..CB..RB..TE..., not necessarily in that order

Craig, if you mean restructure Marshall by kicking him off the team faster than you can say "weak link", then I agree.

And Clemons is a glorified backup, nothing more.

Dear Jeff Ireland....please ignore the rows with the letters DC in front of the names....

DC, I did a head slap and an OMG when I saw the above stats, also. Do we have Henning/Sparano II connection with Sherman/Philbin? I didn't like that they tried Reggie up the middle most of the year- been there, done that, you know? And you're right- Tannehill is very effective throwing on the run but they kept him in the pocket, grinding away. Seems like Shannahan and Carroll decided their rookies needed a little deception via PA to help them out.

DC, I'm not a fan either, but if we let Smith walk, and we should, you gotta have something, draft one, and sign one in FA, like Cromartie....

Same goes for Clemmons, who we got to replace him?, cut him and sign Landry?

Why has nobody mentioned Ed Reed as a possible signing?

I know he may retire but given Baltimore may have to tie up it's tag with Joe Flacco - is there any way in Hedes Jeff Ireland could have the skill to talk Ed Reed into returning for one more season to the place where it all began for him???

Two things ...

Even if he could be talked into it 1) It would be mighty expensive but 2) we need a ball ahwking safety ... well who's ever been better?

Bill....

Great post....but...as seems to be the NEW NORM here...I think it is the tinyest if teeny-eeny-tiny microspecs in evaluatng the quaterback as a WHOLE....

its stats like that that promt the greats like BELICHEAT to tell us that "stats are for losers"....I mean seriously....

This game is about wins and losses...and the EYE can tell yoyu plenty...and the EYE tells us ALL that Tanne was lacking....and only HOPE gives us optimisim that he will get better....

Is there a stat for how many times Tanne looked to his left before snapping the ball....and then completed a pass up the middle...

how about a stat for how many passes Tanne completed after he said ..48...go go...

you see were I'm going with this....


Kris,

Still bashing a rookie I see? Lol.

Everyone has their opinion but the history of the NFL tells us to be patient with rookie QBS. After all they are just rookies and although guys like Cam Newton, Luck, RG3 and Wilson seemed to have elevated what people want to see it's not realistic to think eveyr guy has the same learning curve. Give him a chance and take the good with the bad for now. It's too early to go too far into thinking he's the answer or a bust. He has a long way to go but I like what I see.

Elway, Aikman, Steve Young, Eli Manning all were terrible in year 1.

DAN MARINO DIDN'T COMMIT
ADULTERY, ACCORDING TO THE
BIBLE LEVITICUS 20:10.
IT STATES THAT YOU'RE NOT
SUPPOSE TO HAVE SEX WITH
ANOTHER MAN'S WIFE. SHE
BELONGED TO DAN MARINO.
SEX IS MARRIAGE ACCORDING TO
THE BIBLE. A MARRIED WOMAN
CANNOT HAVE SEX WITH ANOTHER MAN. THERE'S NO LAW IN THE BIBLE THAT SAYS A MARRIED MAN
CANNOT HAVE ANOTHER UNMARRIED WOMAN. KING DAVID
HAD 500 WIVES.

I think the problem with that stat, bill, is the fact that we only used play action 15% of the time AND WE HAD GOOD RBs! I don't believe the stat on his QBR using play action because it's so unimportant (mainly because of his low reps). The problem I have is: why would we barely use PA plays? Every team knows our RBs are good and our WRs are garbage. If you're an LB and even a safety wouldn't you look for the run on more plays than the pass? If Tannehill thinks of handing the ball off I'm going to commit to avoid being burned by Bush or Miller. Our WR pose no threat. That can also be the problem. If we had a WR that could streak down the sideline, force the safety over, and open up the middle for sure-hands Fasano (lol) or Hartline or Bess we would have a much better overall passing game

Posted by: Mark in Toronto | February 01, 2013 at 09:16 AM

I would take Ed Reed (the original hobo beard - not Revis) strictly as a teacher for Jones and maybe Wilson if he moves over to safety. He will be way too expensive and he's a ball-hawk but his play is declining and he's looking for his last big pay day before retirement. He has great value as a teacher and mentor but not necessarily as a player. His signing would tie our hands from other, bigger holes.

Andy NJ....

Not really bashing....just saying that we can create stats to say almost anything....and when we say anything...we are really saying nothing...

I like stats...I really do....but when we OVER ANALYZE them...look only for what we WANT to see...as opposed to what is really happening....then stats get misconstrued.....

First and foremost...the most important stat by far s WINS and losses...

followed by....

completion %

TDs

3rd down efficiency

yards per completion

and probably about 20 other QB stats that I would come up with if I were to go to ESPN and look @ how that rate and rank QB....I would use all of those before I consider play-action percentage ...i mean c'mon....its the off-season....they have nothing else to write...

When is the last time somebody talked about Play-action pass % deciding the outcome of a game..

MD20, a lot of people would say one of our biggest holes is our secondary. Reed also hasn't missed a game since 2010. I wouldn't cry about giving him a 2 year 20 million dollar contract .... that being said, I would rather have his teamate Paul Kruger. Either way, take advantage of this Raven Flacco negotiation and do your best to pry away one of their top free agents.

lol fair enough

I would also like to add that Tanne's play-action ball fakes SUCKED...and when I say SUCKED...I mean like SUCKED in the worst possible sense of the word....they were Dan Marino play- action bad....and that is saying alot....

I hope Tanne gets better mechanics during the off-season and gets up to par with his sophmore counter-parts when it comes to the run fake....

RG3 was masterful....the rest were pretty good....really selling that fake will greatly improve upon his league-leading (almost) play-action percentage....

Our secondary is a big hole. But more at CB than at safety. We should spend that money on Revis instead of Reed but we know Revis will cost picks and/or players and not just money. I like Reed, a great player and one of the best every at the position. But if he or even a Polamalu for example were available I'd look to avoid it unless it was for 5 million which is unlikely. I'd rather us spend the money on a Wallace or DE. But I agree that the Flacco/Ravens negotiations would be a great time to take advantage of Reed

Kris... While I like the stats for Tannehill- and I think Belichick would appreciate them, too- I saw it much like MiamiD20: the question is why didn't the team use PA more?

As I pointed out, Washington and Seattle used this deception far more than Miami with their rookie QBs. Most rookie QBs need all the help they can get, any way they can get it. A little extra time for the QB; a half-step ahead for the receivers is what PA is intended to produce. Why wouldn't Miami take advantage of a QB that was one of the best in the league at it? (Ahem... only stats can show this...)

Darnell Ellerbe is also fantastic ... A LB corps of Ellerbe flanked by Dansby and Burnett next year would be fantastic.

Throw in Bryant McKinnie as a one year stop gap too if Jake Long doesn't wake up.

Posted by: billcale | February 01, 2013 at 09:59 AM

Accuracy or our inept OLine is most likely the reason. But I agree that PA should have been used more because we had the RBs (burners; Bush and Miller) that would force LBs and Safety's to bite

Billcale....

The reason I don't think we used it very much is because we weren't one of the great running teams in the NFL...if I were coaching against us...I would preach to the backers and safeties to do there job and not get sucked up in the play-action...what did we average running a game...my best guess is around 90 yards...if i'm right...that will not threaten a D-Coordinator to fear our run...hence...recievers have a tough time getting open....

If/when we get a straight ahead down hill runner...then I think we can use the play-action a bit more....but if they are gonna insist on running Bush..or a Bush size back between the tackles 20 times a game....then I think our play-action pass #s will stay about the same...

One more note on the Baltimore Ravens scenario - considering they have 3 fantastic players that would fit for us (Kruger, Reed, Ellerbe) - they are $15 under the cap for next year. They will sign Flacoo, maybe one more big guy then the cap is busted unless they have wiggle room elsewhere. There will be players there for the taking and I would be very excited if we grabbed one of their very good players.

We ranked 17th @ 112 RYP game...better than I thought...but not scary good...

Yes, D20, defenses apparently did bite. That's most likely why Tannehill's stats were so good. Team's WERE respectful of Miami's stable of running backs and were caught off-guard frequently with PA. It was obviously a type of play that the team executed well.

Huge comestic overhauls on defense this offseason is the least of my concerns. Ofensively is where its needed most. You guys witnessed the games. watching this offense in 2012 was about as exciting as watching mollasses roll uphill.

True, defensively we could use some work. I thought as much watching the defensive framework of the early 70's championship Dolphins. Teams moved up and down the field at times with relative ease.

However, the greatest difference between, say, this defese and those early 70's defense could be describe in only one oh so imporant word:

"TURNOVERS"!

Yes, at times teams moved with ease on those championship defenses, but, at some point someone almost always seemd to come up with that oh so important turnover. Whether it was the ball hawking safeties, Scott or Anderson. Or, a Bounticonti pick in the moddle of the field, fumble recovery, or well timed sack.

It wasnt a shutdown defense. But it was a "shut out" defense when it seemed opponents needed to score most.

I WOULD LIKE S.Fs DELANIE WALKER AS OUR TE. FAST AND HE's A BEAST

Dan Marino is a PIG!

Bill...

You're answer to Miami D (if it were corect and accurate) would mean that our coaches are incompetent....I mean do you think that the author of this article about PA pass % for Tanne is the ONLY one in the worl that could have complied such information...

and therefore...

a. our staff was to DUMB to ever consider looking @ such a stat as a way to be succesful...or

B. Knew about the stat and purposefully set Tanne up to fail by rarely running Play Action passing...

or...

and stay with me Bill...

C. the most likely of the 3....this HIGHLY COMPETENT staff that we have faith in to lead us back to prominence....saw that play-action wasn't a realistic option during the course of the games...BECAUSE we didn't run the ball as well as we had hoped that we would....especially after Bush's initial injury...

Would you agree that option C is the more likely...

let me add...

So when we did run Play-action....it was a surprise to the defense....

there...common ground...

Its been fun....as always Bill...later....

Tannehill is still having trouble with the speed of the pro game. Bad footwork, and inconsistent accuracy and delivery have all been part of his dissapointing rookie year.

The number one objective for this team isn't improving offense or defense - it is improving the turnover ratio. By any means necessary. If it means acquiring WRs that create easier throws for the QB, if it means having the Qb mature and make better throws and decisions, if it means getting better linemen to protect the qb, or getting defensive players that make more dynamic plays... we need to go down all these roads. We need more talent period - no matter the position ... (unless it's DT- we are good there, haha)

TOP 5 PLAYERS THAT WOULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE:

1. Mike Wallace WR - He would add a dimension to this offense that it hasn't had in forever. Defenses can't play 8 in the box anymore thats for sure. Wallace not only gives you big playmaking ability he frees up the guys like Bess and slow plodding TEs Miami seems to love.

2. Michael Johnson DE - Cincy most likely tags him. If they for some reason don't he would be the perfect compliment to Cam Wake. He's 6'7 270 and is versatile enough to rush the passer (11.5 sacks) and drop in coverage (2 ints the last 2 years).

3. Paul Kruger DE - Hes more of an effort guy which seems like we have enough of with Misi and Vernon as compliments to the ultimate try hard in Wake but Kruger is a good player who had 9 sacks this past year and great in the run game.

4. Jarious Byrd - Another player like Johnson and Kruger who probably gets tagged but with a new coach coming in he could see the open market. Also the Bills can't afford to lose Andy Levitre and he is a FA as well. Byrd and Jones would be very good together.

5. Brandon Albert LT - He is a better player and a cheaper option then Jake Long at this point in their careers. Long is over rated. Albert is good but not great but he is a great run blocker.

FA, "the ultimate double-edged sword". Had it existed in the early 70's, it very possible that the discussion of the "undefeated-untied championship Dolphins" would never have exist. Its very possible 2 of its most important pieces Nick Bounticonti and Paul Warfield never become Dolphins.

They came in trades you know. So if fa existed, they may never have been available for those trades.

Not to mention several other pieces that would have neededto be resigned to huge contracts or walk.

IMO, The WFL, was the first existence of Free agency in professional football. Guess who was hit hardest by it? Correct, our very own Miami Dolphin. Kiick, Warfield, and Czonka leaving, thus creating the disassembling of perhaps the finest championship offense possibly in nfl history.

Andy, love the list and I agree 100%. Thing is all these guys will have tag figures of 7m+ so you probably can only sign 2 or so. If we get any of the guys on the list, it will eb a coup. But I agree, a couple of those guys will not hit the street. Kruger and Wallace have the best shot considering what's going on in Baltimore ... sign them if you can and that would be great!!

AndyNJ,

Ive been advocating foregoing signing a wr in fa altogether and making Brendon Albert and Andy Levitre the primary fa targets. This is a wr rich draft. Especially 1st to mi 3rd rd.

Many wr's in this draft whom seem to find their way to the endzone fairly well.

Crap players = Crap turnover ratios
Better players = Better turnover ratios

Kris, the stats for Tannehill were compiled by me from PFF- not an article. They are genuine. And, yes, I am second-guessing the coaching. But it's not like I haven't done THAT before...

I don't know what the stats point out except that Tannehill made a living on PA passing when used. I don't know if the coaches are aware of it or not. As you have pointed out, it is not a commonly followed stat.

However, I am of the football opinion that says when you find something that works offensively, you use it until the defense stops it. If you make the decision to stop using it for no reason, that makes for lousy coaching. And if you're not even aware of something that your team can do well, that also indicates bad coaching. Let's say these are red flags, for now.

Mark Toronto,

Yeah we'd be lucky to get 1 of those guys considering franchise tags and open market competition but all would be sure fire starters and not Richard Marshall type of free agents who somehow starts but shouldn't be on the roster to begin with.

A good start would be a blog cleansed of the likes of Aloco, Phins78, Craig M, Dashi, Odin & Oscar.

BillCale,

Slow down son. You stated the stats are compiled by you and not a PFF article. That I have to seriously question. What are your credentials for compiling such? What methods did you use to compile as such.

So you see, when "amatuers" start compiling things, very crucial and important evaluators get left or thrown to the wayside. Then still, if all the "correct" info by miracle is all included to assess, still theres huge margin for error in calculation of these elements.

So at "real face value", your "amatueristic calculations" could mean absolutely zero. There could be huge calculatory errors absolutely riddling your assessments. Sorry but I choose to question nearly everything before I accept it as "TRUE" fact.

Yesterdays Gone,

You know what? That would good to me - Albert and Levitre and then add all your playmakers - WRs, TE, CB, S in the draft.

Granted not saying all the draft picks would work out but the OL sure would be a strength!

Ed Reed would be a fantastic addition. Wrote a post about it last night, for some reason, it didn't post. For starters, if it keeps him off of New England, or from returning to Baltimore, it removes a great player from a potential playoff opponent in the next few seasons.

More importantly, his work in the meeting room, leadership on the practice field, basically his value Monday-Saturday is something this defense sorely needs. He would be key in helping Reshad Jones take the next step to greatness. Let him come home to Miami. This should be a no-brainer.
