Anyone know if such a compiled list is around for viewing?
That's probably the best one out there, but it's not 100% accurate. Vrabel is not a free agent until March 2010.
This is the site I always use:
I know it's a long ways off but I'm just wanting to see what FA CB competition the Pats will face next year should they wish to entertain tagging and trading Samuel.
There are also a number of guys who are not scheduled to become free agents, but are released from a team for various reasons (money, etc.).
Not a lot of big names on the free agent lists. Good thing we spent some good money this year. Top QB: Rex Grossman.
Next year is supposed to be another weak year for free agent cornerbacks.
This is why the Pats can't trade Asante too quickly. Even if they expend
one of their #1 draft picks next year on a CB , the rookie won't be a finished
product. The odds are Asante is not going to have 10 interceptions
next year. If he has a more typical year with 4 to 6 interception, perhaps
his demands will soften and leave room for normal negotiations.
In the three preseason games without Asante, the Pats have the
grand total of 1 interception (Lua).
Only 2 names on the Lb list that mildly interest me Donatarius Thomas, Karlos Dansby.
Looks like lb might be drafted high next year if we wanna restock.
This is why I hope the Pats hold on to Justin Rodgers and Oscar Lua. While
they are late round draft picks, they have a year of training camp under their
belts and are at least a starting point for rebuilding a linebacker corps
that is mostly 30 year olds.
I don't know about Richardson, but Lua reminds me more of Marty Moore than Tedy Bruschi. Sorry but just not enough speed. If he doesn't develop into a great special teams player, he isn't long for the Pats.
Rogers is another story. Lets see how he develops over the next few years.
Would anyone else be interested in using a draft pick on Domonique Foxworth from the Broncos? He's an RFA and could demand a bit, but he's quite good and we could always use a blow to the Broncos.
Separate names with a comma.
