I’ve been meaning to do this for a few days now, but here it is. I’ve put together a list of the top free agents still available in the NFL. I’m only listing players that are unrestricted free agents, or players that were released. So this list does not include restricted free agents, or free agents that have been franchised. I’m putting up what team they were with in 2008 as well as what type of free agent they are. I’m also listing them with how old they will be by September 1, 2009 so that we get an idea for how old they will be this season. It’s interesting to take note that of the 21 players I have listed, only three of them are under 30. I’m listing them in a general order from best to worst, not based on how well they’ve done in the past but what kind of production I think a team would be able to get out of them this year. Here it is:
|Rnk.||Player||Pos.||FA Type||Age||2008 Team|
|6||John Carney||PK||UFA||45||NY Giants|
|17||Roy L. Williams||DB||Released||29||Cowboys|
Update: Hunter Smith has been signed by the Redskins. Torry Holt has been signed by the Jaguars but Plaxico Burress was released by the Giants so he can just take that top spot and Jamel White was signed by the 49ers.
