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:

Agreed Andy, we should definitely be shopping in the high rent district in the initial stages of free agency.

Three lower level free agents I would be looking at are James Casey, Delanie Walker, and Bernard Scott. All would add much needed athleticism to our offensive huddle, and would not command high figures.

Andy Levitre would require more money, but would add the same athleticism to our offensive line. A seemingly forgotten part of the helping Tannehill process is the fact that when he had time, he was basically an assassin. Signing/drafting more offensive linemen would be met with venom from the fanbase, but anyone who saw Tannehill with time to operate understands the importance of protecting him.

Ed Reed? No player over 30 yrs old is any part of a rebuild.

YG, perhaps "compiled" was not a good use in this case as it is creating an ambiguity. The "stats" I used were "compiled" by PFF; I "compiled" the "stats" in my post from their (PFF) compilation. i.e.:

COMPILE: to compose out of materials from other documents. 2. : to collect and edit into a volume.

BillCale,

Actually, I think the only tru indicator that a passing play wasnty a playaction pass is when its a "shotgun" play.

A playaction pass is so simplistic a caveman ca do it. Its only the qb faking putting the ball into the rb's belly thats it. Usually it only works as well as your qb's ability to use "slight of hand" to sell the fake to momentarily freeze the lb's and safety.

It just seems to work far much better when youre actually successfully running the ball. Thats because the safety comes down to help in run support. That one false step, helps to get an open reciever behind him.

Playaction is also designed to create that tenth of a second more that your qb has to get the ball out of his hand. Slow the rush down slightly, if you will.

bootang, nice to see an old school poster back.

Yeah, definitely would like Ed Reed back here. Like Mark posted above, I'm normally don't want players over 30 to be acquired but this is a Hall of Famer. definite exception. And you know he's not going to be a guy to take the money and run. He will give you what you pay for albeit for a short period of time.

The Dolphins wish they had a player of Reeds calliber. Silly guy. Who wouldn't want one of the best safeties ever if not the best.

Andy NJ,

I would love this oline for 2013:

LT Brendon Albert
LG Ritchie Incognito
C Mike Pouncey
RG Andy Levitre
RT Jonathan Martin

This sounds like an oline that would allow us to both run and pass well.

Here's what I'd do in FA:

Go after Wallace(up to $9m). If he's too much, try Jennings($6-8m)
Finley! If he's too much go after Keller or Cook
A. Cason
C. Peprah

IMHO, a starting CB, Safety, WR & TE are an absolute MUST in FA. Everyone of those guys would start & fill an immediate need. Here's what I'd do with our FA's:

Let Long, Starks, Clemmons & Bush walk.

Sign Smith, Hartline, extend Soliai

Assuming Smith accepts $7m per, Wallace $9m, Finly $6m, Peprah $4m, Cason $7m, Hartline $6m. That's about $39 mil. Which might leave enough left to keep Long as a RT or Starks.

Or better yet, sign all those guys for contracts in that ballpark if you can, then cut Dansby & use his money to extend Soliai

I look at the plan above & look at an offense with Jennings or Wallace, Hartline, Bess, Finley or Keller & get excited.

I look at a Secondary that includes Jones, S. Smith, Cason, & Peprah Patterson or Marshall as the nickel & feel hopeful.

AND YES I SPEND EVERY DIME IN FA & SAVE JUST ENOUGH TO SIGN ALL THE ROOKIES BECAUSE I HAVE ZERO CONFIDENCE IN IERLAND TO FILL MORE THAN 2 OF THE MEGA HOLES WE HAVE WITH HIS ACORNS OR UNDERWHELMING DRAFT CHOICES!

bootang,

I realize the UM connection, but Ed Reed is also a "New Orleans" native. I believe its more likely he would defect to the Saints long before he defected to Miami.

Plus, for the last few seasons, Ive gotten the feeling Reed really doesnt care much for playing any longer. My best guess is Reed also retires this year along with Lewis, win or lose this year's sb.

Reed has threaten to retire for several seasons now while playing in Baltimore. I suspect that Ray Lewis may have talked him off of the ledge. Seems Reed's desire to play football has been "waining since the death of his brother.

Here's a small sniplet of that:

"Brian Reed – Ed’s brother – is the man who jumped into the Mississippi River on Friday as he ran from the police. The body has not been found."

LOL, I like Cason a lot too from SD. A lot of talent and not much talk about him on this blog. I'd take him in a minute.

And I do assume you pick up a tackle high in the draft? (1st two rounds?)

Hey, I love Ed Reed. And yes he is arguably the best ever at his position. Or was. He's certainly on his last legs. And the fact is he's not going to bring us a SB. The goal should be a SB. And an Ed Reed will only be taking snaps away from the younger guys that may actually be around if and when we're ready to compete for a SB. He'd just be a band aid that would need to be replaced soon.

Mando,

Come on man....Just a whole bunch of names here!!! What's the point???

I get the odd feeling that Ireland may not re-sign one of our FA's until after they hit the open market. Maybe not the worst idea BUT if Hartline gets an offer for $6 Million a year to play for a playoff team I think he'll take it & he won't look back. Maybe I'm wrong BUT in reading some of Hartline's comments I just get the feeling that he doesn't owe the Dolphins anything. And guess what??? He's right. The guy wants to win & he wants to get paid after the season he had.

I'm also starting to believe that Greg Jennings will be a Dolphin next year. Other possible landing spots are SF, SD, STL, & DEN.

Mark,

Cason I think is MUCH better than Smith, young & COULD be a #1 CB. It would allow smith to be what he should be, a #2. It also allows keeping ONLY Marshall or Patterson to be the nickel & cutting the other would free up about another 4-5 mil in cap space.

It's tough because I see him as a priotiy in SD because Jammer in also a FA & old & the more likley to not be brought back.

I think the contracts I presented in my post are reasonable! IF & only if those are accurate & we can save $$ by losing Marshall/Patterson, it might leave about $7-11 mil left. That MIGHT be enough to get long to stay for around $6-7 incentive based. I don't think any team will pay his asking price.

Worst case scenario & probably a better scenario would be to draft a high tackle OR sign a FA. Restructuring or cutting Dansby & Marshall/Patterson would free up more than enough space to sign or draft a MLB & a tackle who can start immediately.

With weapons intact & a revamped secondary, it will allow next years FA & draft to address the Guard play & LB'ers.

YG@11:12, You'll have to take up your definition of Play Action with PFF if you dispute their definition or numbers. I think it's a good site, offering lots of useful, pertinent information. Others may think differently and/or place little value on such information.

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.
Posted by: Yesterday's Gone 4Ever | February 01, 2013 at 10:45 AM

I've heard the exact opposite of this draft. That this is the draft to select a DE in

Add
GBP Jennings, Greg WR 7 (the 1st priority if free, please don’t OVER pay, like marshall)
KCC Bowe, Dwayne WR 6 (if you lose out on Jennings, shouldn’t be paid hugh)
NYJ Keller, Dustin TE 5 (high priority, willing to pay for him, still not going crazy)
SF Goldson, Dashon S 6 (he not going anywhere that why this is a wish list)
BB Byrd, Jairus S 4
DL Delmas, Louis S 4
BR Ellerbe, Dannell LB 4 (doubtful they don’t resign)
DB Clady, Ryan OL 5 (If you decide to go cheaper and let long walk, likely resigning ) keep long
PE Rodgers-Cromartie, Dominique
DB Porter, Tracy CB 5CB 5
------------------------
Keep
MD Bush, Reggie RB 7
MD Long, Jake OL 5 ( Right price only)
MD Starks, Randy DT 9
MD Smith, Sean CB 4 (right price only)
MD Hartline, Brian WR 4 (right price only)

*Will not take more than one at any position

MiamiD20, it isn't a great WR draft by most accounts.

I was a big fan of trying to sign Garcon last offseason & you called the skins dumb for paying him what they did.

You had a littany of excuses as to why he wasn't worth it. We now see he was worth every penny.

Have you changed your tune on him yet?

Hypothetical question. If the Chargers commit to Cason in the close season, would you consider making a moderate stopgap investment in Quentin Jammer? Guy is older but not dirt old. Not going to be able to fill all slots in young guys ... just not enough supply.

It's a model that worked pretty good for Cincy re: Clements

YG 4ever,

Yeah that would be a very complete O-line on paper for sure

Very important season for John Jerry. He becomes a fa in 2014. LOL...

Posted by: O'darris D'haiti | February 01, 2013 at 11:57 AM

There is NO WAY Clady will be cheaper than Long. Long's FA contract wishes are based on the past. Clady is in his prime, Long is past it.

Clady was a unanimous All pro selection this year. He is by far the better of the 2 players right now. He also hasn't been seriously injured the last 3 years or end up on IR the last 2.

It's doubtful Denver doesn't resign him to protect Manning. If they do, it's because another team will make him the higest paid LT & lineman in the NFL.

Mark,

I would say no to Jammer. 1stly, I think he's overrated. 2ndly, I think Marshall & Patterson along with Smith back along with a 1st rd DB would be better.

I am hearing allot of good things about a few DB's other than Milliner who can go top 15. Banks fro Mississippi is 1 of em.

If we can't get a #1 CB in FA, I think we have to try to draft one VERY early!

Go after Avril and either Wallace, Bowe, or Jennings. Then draft top cornerback or Tight end in first round. Cornerback or tight end with the 1st pick in the second round. Widereceiver with second pick in roun two. After that, go after best available players, because we need depth everywhere.

@ LOL
I know, but it's a wish list.....let me dream. I am would love to keep long for a cheaper price. I don't think he is pasted his prime and believe he can still can be a player that is better than Clady if not equal. (healthy)

I know what Marino did was wrong, but he is DAN MARINO. . . He should be given a mulligan or two.

@ Tiger W.
LOL, one to talk

Yeah, the draft will be needed to infuse more talent in the secondary if you don't nail it in free agency for sure.

Any thoughts on Darnell Ellerbe. In my opinion, he's been Baltimore's best defensive player in these playoffs. The guy's range is unreal. I know LB doesn't pop out as a true #1 need on paper but getting a guy like that and massaging the cap number elsewhere would really do the Dolphins well I think.

Hypothetical question. If the Chargers commit to Cason in the close season, would you consider making a moderate stopgap investment in Quentin Jammer? Guy is older but not dirt old. Not going to be able to fill all slots in young guys ... just not enough supply.

It's a model that worked pretty good for Cincy re: Clements

Mark.

Jammer is better than anyone we have including Smith.

That was my thinking too playmakers ... Jammer can hold the fort and give us good play there. Not every player needs to be a 10 year solution at a position. It's just as important to get a free agent at a price as much as long term fit.

I wouldn't sign a lot of 30+ aged players - maybe one or two but I'd rather sign an awesome vet on a short term deal as a band aid than sign a young player for a contract that will kill you later on.


"Yeah, the draft will be needed to infuse more talent in the secondary if you don't nail it in free agency for sure.

Any thoughts on Darnell Ellerbe. In my opinion, he's been Baltimore's best defensive player in these playoffs. The guy's range is unreal. I know LB doesn't pop out as a true #1 need on paper but getting a guy like that and massaging the cap number elsewhere would really do the Dolphins well I think."

Mark,

Two guys in Baltimore who will most likely hit FA b/c of their cap situation is Cary Williams & Paul Kruger. Not sure why NO ONE on here is talking about Cary Williams who is coming off a very good season & just turned 28.

I know you like S. Smith but he's not nearly as good as Cary Williams who had to pick up the slack in Baltimore after their best CB Ladarius Webb went down early in the season.

Jammer will be 34 next season. Pro Football Focus is unreliable at times, but he had him at next to last of all the free agent corners. I'm staying far far away.

Mark,

At this point I'll take whatever solutions we can get @ CB as long as they're an improvement from 2012.

Excuses? More like reasons. How much did Garçon produce last season? Is his injury an excuse or reason? I made the argument he was the product if a good QB. Brandon Stokely-esque. I stick by that. He had a good game at the end of the season and had that long TD run when the CB fell down in the first game.

I don't remember hearing you talk smack when he wasn't doing squat. Only when the argument fits your scheme I take it? Don't come to me when he does good and shy away when he does bad. I could have unloaded on you the entire middle of the season.

The only prediction I was off on last season was when I said RGIII is average in preseason. I still think the skins payed too much for him and he won't last but he is a good QB nonetheless.

As for garçon, I stick by it.

We Need Playmakers,

A BIG yes to Ellerbe and Krueger. I'm sure a lot of teams will want these two though.

As for Williams, Baltimore offered him a 5 million dollar a year deal before the start of this year and he turned it down. Apparently he wants 8-10 million a year. I dont know if he will get that much, but that is a hefty price.

Playmakers, I am a huge Paul Kruger fan. I give him a HUGE offer if he's on the street. I'm talking $10M+ a year.

Cary Williams I know has played well but for whatever reason I don't have a handle on him as a player. But considering he was one of the guys who played so well against the pats and one of those guys who pressed relentlessly against that Pats pussie three yard pass offense and took their game away, I'm a fan.

By the way, can anyone else explain why we give the Pats so much cushion? All they do is pass short.

NeMo,

You're getting a very reliable, durable veteran with Jammer. The guy has RARELY missed a start in 11 seasons. He won't be very expensive & more importantly he won't get embarrassed like Nolan Carroll or RJ Stanford.

I agree with Jammer as a stop-gap until we draft another CB

NeMo,

Young, quality starting CB's are very f#cking expensive b/c they're very hard to find. If Smith is looking for $7 Million (not sure anyone than I'd definitely rather sign Williams for $8 Million

NeMo, nice input on Jammer ... admittedly didn't watch him much for the last year or two so my suggestion was based onsome dated viewing. that rating is kind of shocking though - unbelievable that he would fall off that much.

JMart is NOT a RT Period

MD20,

Assuming we don't sign someone younger who is going to break the bank....Absolutely!!!

Mark,

B/c our CB's are cissies & they're afraid of getting beat. At least Vontae wasn't soft. Yes he take risks & gives up big plays but he also makes plays.

Just imagine what our pass rush would like with Wake & Kruger???

"JMart is NOT a RT Period"

Oscar,

Clearly. All the more reason to let Long go. if Martin can't be the starting LT next year then Ireland has some 'splaining to do...

The CB position is thin in FA and the draft. We are going to have to draft a CB (probably 1st round) and resign Smith. I am not a big fan of Smith but he has the bull by the horns. To top it off, CBs are extremely expensive. Marshall was paid 5.5 million a year to play nickel corner. Expect Sean Smith to be looking for a contract that pays him around 8 Milion a year. Unfortunately, we may have no choice but to pay it. We cannot afford to go into next season with Nolan Carrol and a rookie CB as our starters.

I agree. Unless we can snag Grimes which is unlikely we're probably going to have to pay Smith. He's not great, but has potential and size. Nolan Carroll should be a CB#4 - not even a nickel.

I hope Marino's wife divorces his sorryass.

Martin is a smart guy. He can play RT in this league. It will just take a little more seasoning, but he was improving before the Long injury. I think they should really try to resign Long, but I agree with everyone not at a market high price for LT's. If we let him go that's just another big hole we have to fill. Martin at LT is a good second option though. RT's are easier to find in FA.

We already saw that Martin cant handle the LT position. He's a turnstile at LT. He's not that good at RT. I feel sorry for Tanny if they let Long go.

Jebediah,

Both Cary Williams & Cason are better players than Smith. The idea of paying S. Smith $ 7 Million or even $8 Million a year is LUDICROUS!!! Same goes for Jake Long.

I wouldn't pay Smith or Long more than $2.5 Million (which is stop-gap money) a year. I know Jackie Long would pass out if she read this but at this point we KNOW what we're getting with both guys & it's not good enough.

Martin at LT reminded me of Marc Columbo....YIKES!

Strange. JMart was giving up sacks, Hartline was slipping all over the place, Lamar Miller was flopping to the floor, Bess was dropping passes, all in the last Game last Season.. Strange. Just saying.

Shula 73,

Really...B/c I feel sorry for Tanny if we keep Long. Some of those hits Tanny took from the blind side looked like he got hit by a truck!!! Paying a LT $10 Million a year who is coming off his worst season & who missed the last 4 games of the season due to injury would be 'salary cap suicide' for this franchise. Mark it down....

Why would Long say he would sign for 10 mill next year if he's making 12 mill now. Woulnd't that be an admssion on his part that he has deteriorated as a Plyer? He is not that dumb. Anybody?

Thank the Lord you're not our GM!! lol

JMart is not a LT PERIOD! Anyone that watched the games knows that.

I have to admit, thinking of J. Byrd and Jones in the Safety positions gives me a huge woodie.

Strange. JMart was giving up sacks, Hartline was slipping all over the place, Lamar Miller was flopping to the floor, Bess was dropping passes, all in the last Game last Season.. Strange. Just saying.

Oscar,

Seven sacks allowed by the O-line in that game which WAS strange considering the O-line gave up two to the Niners.

One was by Aldon Smith after he embarrassed & destroyed Martin. However for all the Long supporters--I distinctly recall Long getting embarrassed & destroyed by Watt & Freeney among others.

Guys, there is plenty of cap space. We cant afford to lose ANY starters. Overpaying is necessary UNTIL we have an established HC, GM, and/or are playoff contenders.

On the play that TMart was blown up on you can clearly see that he got his leg tangled with Cogs, which obviously gave Smith leverage.

Why would Long say he would sign for 10 mill next year if he's making 12 mill now. Woulnd't that be an admssion on his part that he has deteriorated as a Plyer? He is not that dumb. Anybody?

Oscar,

Maybe he won't??? That's just the number that's been reported.

I know this--if Long hits the FA market his agent Tom Condon will get him every single dollar he possibly can.
