    This is a nice overview of all of our free agents and guys from other teams and their current status. It's up-to-date enough to show Matt as franchised.

    I was skimming it for guys at positions of need who might fall into the high-value, reasonable $$$ category but I don't know enough about players on D on some o the smaller-market teams.

    Any stand-outs that have "Pats" written on them?

    I didn't realize Owen Daniels was a RFA. If we end up with a bunch of picks from trading Cassel, Daniels could be a great addition (with the assumption it didn't cost a ton in the pick department).

    I agree he'd be a nice addition, but the Texans should probably give him the highest tender, meaning he'd cost us too much.

    Each listed is sorted team then players last name. Its a nice list but doesn't give any of the players a rating like some other sites do e.x. 4/5 stars, stats, or bio so unless you know these players gotta do some googling.

    Its a great list, but still has some errors on it.

    1) Jason Peters - LT - Buffalo - is a UFA and isn't on the list. He only signed a one year franchise deal last year.
    2) Darian Barnes - FB - Is a UFA not an RFA with 7 years experience and he actually ended the season on the Saints roster. Not Buffalo's.
    3) They don't list Lonie Paxton, Rosie Colvin or Junior Seau under the list of UFAs for the Pats.

    So who do folks think is potentially of interest to the Pats from this list (other than resigning their own)?

    My 2 cents:

    Jim Leonhard, S- the Ravens have other priorities this offseason, and Dawan Landry is easier for them to retain as a RFA.

    Jabari Greer, CB- Pats seem to sign some vet CBs every year. He's decent, & Buffalo may let him walk.

    Sean Jones, S- another decent to good vet for the secondary. Eliminates the need to draft a safety?

    Andra Davis, LB- to take over for Bruschi (rather than have 2 young pups in there at the same time).

    Willie McGinest, LB- to retire. Damn I love me some Willie though.

    Patrick Ramsey, QB- vet backup if O'Connell is not ready to be #2 and Cassel is gone.

    Owen Daniels, TE (RFA)- I really like him but how much would he cost?

    Jeff Saturday, C - no way in heck it happens, but he's still very good and it would p1ss off a Manning.

    Eric Barton, LB - Jest will need to cut salary somewhere (see also Poteat, Hank)

    Nnamdi Asomugha, CB - The crown jewel of this offseason (assuming we are not in the market for Albert Haynesworth), a longshot but I hope they at least give him a call.

    Darren Sproles, RB - probably won't get away from San Diego, but would look good as the next Kevin Faulk

    Bo Scaife, TE - slightly better than reliable

    I'm in the Greer camp too. Probably a nice affordable pick-up at CB and more upside than our recent crack-filler at the position.

    About Sproles, I think he's good, but I have a feeling his shelf-life is not going to be anywhere near Faulk's.

    I think Sproles would cost too much. And I'd be really p-d off if we signed Ramsey -- he sucks.

    Suggs LB Baltimore (Good kid, plays with heart but highly improbable lol)

    Bruener TE Houston (Good Veteran Run blocker?)

    Yeremiah Bell SS Miami (Good safety?)

    Our own Evans, Gaffney, Hanson, Harrison, J. Sanders and L. Jordan (anyone else loved our Running Corps last year? Morris-Faulk-Jordan were great when at full str. with Evans as FB) Hanson was an amazing punter too, I hope he's back again.

    Barton LB Jets (Good LB?)

    N. Washignton WR Pit (Good player-3rd WR)

    F. Keiaho LB Ind (Fast LB?)

    Dunta Robinson CB Houston (Good CB?)

    Mike Peterson LB Jax (Had some problems there, maybe get him on the cheap?)

    Justin McCareins WR, Chris Carr DB, Bo Scaife TE all from Ten all good players.

    I think BB goes after SS Bell of Mimai. Bell is a special teams demon, BB loves those. And while not a particularily great safety, he would make a servicable backup in case the starter goes down. He proved to me last season that he was fully recovered from knee surgery.

    He seems like a good low cost FA signing that boosts the bottom of the roster.

    I want a butt kicking TE that can line up and knock the snot out of the other team.

    Does anyone available meet that need?

    I would re-sign some of our guys on the cheap - both Sanders and Wright.
    If the money gets up there, the Sanders are expendable.
    Wright seems to be a solid backup, but I'm confident in BB to make a better call than me on who to re-sign.
