  • Chicago Bears sign:

    LB Brendan Ayanbadejo- VM - Veteran special teams player who played great under ST coach Dave Toub in the past.

    TE Nate Byham - VM - Depth at TE with the potential to see playing time with how weak the position is in Chicago.

    C/G Chris Spencer - VM - Resigns with the Bears on a cheaper deal. Can provide depth or start if need be.

    RB Marion Barber - VM - Like Spencer, he resigns on a cheaper deal to provide depth.


    • NY Giants sign:

      OT Kareem McKenzie - VM - McKenzie received a few other offers but mostly as a plan B in case other teams missed a more prized tackle. He returns to the Giants as a likely starter hoping for another championship run.

      QB Charlie Batch - VM - With David Carr moving on to Tampa to follow his QB coach, the Giants needed a backup for Eli and Batch is one of the best veteran backups in the league who can start in a pinch.

        S Abram Elam - Low - Returns to the team with the chance to start.

        LB Tim Dobbins - Low - Switches between the Texas teams to provide depth at ILB.

        • Philadelphia Eagles sign:

          OT Gosder Cherilus - Mid - Potential starter at RT or at least starting caliber depth.

          C Mike Pollack - Mid - Likely starter at C, familiar with Howard Mudd's scheme form Indy.


          • Washington Redskins sign:

            OL Will Montgomery - Low - Former starter on the team who will return to compete for another starting job.

              • Atlanta Falcons sign:

                S James Sanders - Mid - Spent last season as a backup with the team and could earn the starting job with DeCoud moving on.

                CB Marcus Trufant - Low - Depth at CB who could see action with Grimes franchised and Dunta Robinson wildly inconsistent.


                • Carolina Panthers sign:

                  CB Dominique Foxworth - Low - Potentially the nickel corner while he shows he's recovered from injury.

                  DE Antwan Applewhite - VM - Rotational pass rusher for depth.

                    CB Tim Jennings - L - Potential starter or at least a solid nickel corner.

                    OT Brandon Keith - VM - Backup swing tackle at least, could compete with Trueblood for the RT job.

                      WR Courtney Roby - Low - Depth WR and special teamer.

                              LB Gary Guyton - VM - Depth at the position with the potential to start next to Ray Lewis.

                              DE Cory Redding - VM - Received no interest on the market, so he returns to his niche with the Ravens.

                              RB Cedric Benson - VM - Surprisingly got no other offers on the market, so he will head to Baltimore to backup Ray Rice in the role vacated by the retiring Ricky Williams, another former Texas RB.
