    I think the Free Agent games will pick up again after the draft. As teams know what holes they filled in the draft they will be more willing to part with over priced guys and over the hill guys.

    I'd definitely be interested in Hamlin.

    Can he rush the passer?? Safety wouldn't appear to be a need here.

    99.99% chance that neither player will be a Patriot. Adams is a P.O.S and is a liability in regards to penalties. Don't know much about Hamlin but if Dallas doesn't want him, you know something's up. Besides, we have 4 Safeties as it is.

    His play never impressed me, but I figured any guy who can get through life with the moniker Flozell must be pretty tough.

    Being 6'7" and 338lb must have helped keep the teasing to a minimum

    But he wasn't that big in the 3rd grade where teasing is an artform.

    He's got size and strength, but he can't keep up with speed rushers any longer. If I were a team looking at him, I'd be wondering if he could convert to guard for the last couple of years of his career.

    Adams is done. He now reverts to being a dirty POS since he knows he cannot block anyone anymore.

    That's what I was thinking. He'd probably make for a solid LG. The thing that would deter me from picking him up is that he's an idiot. I can't recall watching one Dallas game in the last couple of years where he wasn't flagged for a boneheaded penalty.

    As you guys have known me, I've been a long-time Cowboys fan posting here(throughout much of this offseason, I've been in your political/religious forums mostly).

    Adams is going to be SORELY missed(unless Jerry and Wade address LT in the draft - considering Jerry's track record with OL, I doubt it) - Doug Free has turned out good, but he is NOT LEFT TACKLE material. He's a fine RT, but he can NOT handle the bull rushers(i.e. Jared Allen took him to the woodshed in that playoff game when Adams went down).

    Adams may be dirty, and a knucklehead with all of his false starts, however, he's a VERY fine pass blocker - Osi, Trent Cole, and Andre Carter in the NFCE are among the best pass rushers in the league, and he's kept them in check every time.

    Also - when Adams went down in 2005 - Drew Bledsoe went from having a Pro Bowl year to running for his life.

    As for Hamlin - now we're going to have holes at safety. Hamlin isn't great, but he's been GREAT in Wade's system. Now? Alan Ball, Gerald Sensabough...it's just a BIT better than Roy Williams/Keith Davis under Parcells.
