Underrated Free Agents
 
Who are your teams underrated free agents. For the Detroit Lions there are none besides Jason Hanson who is in he's 17th season. But he is a great kicker that doesn't get nearly enough credit.

Idonije, i ******* hope we resign him

tjsunstein 01-01-2009 01:53 PM

Derrick Ward... was an underrated FA before, well, you know.

Menardo75 01-01-2009 02:08 PM

Bryant Johnson?

SeanTaylorRIP 01-01-2009 02:12 PM

Isn't Antonio Bryant slated to be a free agent?

tjsunstein 01-01-2009 02:16 PM

Michael Clayton

Darren Sproles? hope chargers re-sign him.

bigbluedefense 01-01-2009 02:32 PM

Guy Whimper. He's not a franchise LT, but he's been developed as a very serviceable swing Tackle for the Giants, and will break out for some other team and be a bargain.

He's not the most physical guy, more finesse, and not a road grader, but he's very solid in pass protection, and the very least, a high quality backup LT albeit I think he can be more than that if given the chance.

Steelers have Bryant McFadden and Nate Washington up for FA. Other than that, the guys whose contracts are up are useless.

Bruce Banner 01-01-2009 02:48 PM

God dammit, I didn't want to post.

Leroy Hill.

Titans

- Eric King, CB
- Brandon Jones, WR
- Kerry Collins, QB
- Chris Simms, QB
- Craig Hentrich, P
- Mike Otto, OT
- Kevin Vickerson, DT

Those are the Titans' main free agents other than Albert Haynesworth obviously.

Chiefs FS Jared Page but he is a RFA.

RaiderNation 01-01-2009 03:39 PM

Shane Lechler P Raiders. One of the best punters of all time. He was a big part of why we won against the Bucs. Has the best all time per punt average in the league. I hope we resign him

BmoreBlackByrdz 01-01-2009 03:43 PM

Jason Brown, look out for this guy. HE has played at a pro bowl level for the Ravens and is the leader to the youngest o-line in football... Or atleast they were.

ive been eyeing him during the limited Titan games ive seen. i like what i see. he's like a poor man's haynesworth. id love for the Giants to nab him.

whats your assessment of him, considering you've seen him a lot more than i have?

d34ng3l021 01-01-2009 04:20 PM

Michael Boley has been benched this year, but I think in another scheme he can be great again.

I would like the Saints to sign him to play on the weakside.

He gets good penetration through the line even though I wouldn't consider him a great pass-rusher or anything. Holds up well against the run when Haynesworth isn't in which is a relief after how bad Randy Starks used to be for us. Has some slight character/attitude worries, but I think he will be a very good 3rd DT in a rotation wherever he ends up.

BlindSite 01-01-2009 04:37 PM

John Kasay
Jordan Gross
Julius Peppers

the Panthers only UFA's

Kasay only missed 2 FGs this year.

If he gets back to his old form, then he would be good for that. He was a great blitzer, but he lost a lot of weight this season and was no longer good at the point of attack (which led to him being benched). If he can get back in shape, he would work very well with the Giants.

I don't think the Falcons will resign him. I wish him luck elsewhere (hope he doesn't go to the Saints).

I'm kinda salivating at the prospect of Vilma and Boley playing next to each other.

Gay Ork Wang 01-01-2009 05:08 PM

are the saints definitely going to let Vilma go to resign him? I doubt they would extend him to lose a first rounder

I think LeRoy Hill is a better fit for the Gmen.
