Maybe, but Bryant’s arrest in Miami on February 24 for criminal mischief and goofball mug shot may have some teams thinking twice about shelling out the big-time cheese. - See more at: http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/....OAZCjr1p.dpuf

But don’t let the age (32) or the wear and tear (11 seasons, 163 games) fool you. Freeney still has enough left in the tank to contribute as a situational pass rusher, especially if he signs with a 4-3 defense. The big question is, how much cash will he be looking for? Players in both Denver and Atlanta began recruiting Freeney the day he was released by Indianapolis. - See more at: http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/....OAZCjr1p.dpuf

Kind of wish they could sign Andre Smith and move Franklin inside just to watch those two dudes punish people.

10. Dashon Goldson, FS, San Francisco 49ers: Goldson is more of a hard-hitting gambler than a technically-sound player, but that style has helped him earn back-to-back trips to the Pro Bowl along with an All-Pro nomination in 2012. The six-year veteran has recorded 14 interceptions over the last four years, amassed a career-high 11 pass deflections in 2012 and allowed opposing quarterbacks to record a passer rating of just 44.8 when throwing his way last season (ninth in NFL). At the moment, it appears as if the Niners don’t intend to use the franchise tag this offseason, which means Goldson will either return to San Francisco with a new deal or make his bones elsewhere in 2013.

11. William Moore, SS, Atlanta Falcons: Moore has made just 23 starts over the last two years due to injuries, so that could hurt his value on the open market. But the four-year veteran has rolled up 11 interceptions over his last three seasons and made a career-high 75 tackles in 12 starts last year. The 27-year-old appears to be coming into his own with the Falcons, who should make a strong push to re-sign Moore over the next few weeks.

18. Dannell Ellerbe, ILB, Baltimore Ravens: The 27-year-old had just seven career starts in three years under his belt before making a splash when asked to fill in for the injured Ray Lewis. Ellerbe racked up a career-high 89 tackles and 4.5 sacks last season while making the case that he deserves to start in the NFL. The four-year veteran has publicly declared that he would like to remain in Baltimore, but the Ravens are hamstrung until they wrap up the Joe Flacco situation. If this guy hits the market, don’t be surprised if he commands a whole lot of attention.

31. Danny Amendola, WR, St. Louis Rams: The Rams went 5-5-1 with Amendola in the lineup last season and just 2-3 without him, so you have to think the St. Louis front office is interested in bringing the four-year veteran back to town. The 27-year-old is averaging 4.6 receptions per game during his time in St. Louis, but at the moment, he’s the only viable receiving option for soon-to-be-on-the-hot-seat quarterback Sam Bradford. Take note that when Amendola suited up in 2012, the Rams averaged 20.6 points per game. When the wide receiver was out of action, St. Louis scored just 14.4 points per game.

36. Louis Vasquez, OG, San Diego Chargers: 2012 was the first time that Vasquez completed a full 16-game regular season, allowing just 2.5 sacks and committing zero holding penalties or false starts in the process. And at 6-5, 335 pounds and considered one of the few bright spots along the shaky San Diego offensive line, don’t be surprised if the Bolts figure out how to keep the 25-year-old around for a few more seasons

Obviously i know that DEN could never sign ALL of these guys.
However, just 1 of these guys to me, dramatically improves
this team.
Hoping for just 1 of them.

Byrd would be dope. Lots of good players on that list.

4. Jairus Byrd, FS, Buffalo Bills: The former Oregon Duck led the AFC in interceptions as a rookie in 2009 (9) and again in 2012 (5), which paved the way for Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors in each season. The Bills have plenty of tough decisions to make in the coming weeks that could possibly lead to Byrd avoiding the franchise tag and testing the waters. His agent will likely point to the 56.9 passer rating opposing quarterbacks posted when throwing at his client in 2012. Philadelphia would be wise to make some inquiries, should the opportunity present itself.

I think the broncos will not sign any of the players hyped up in free agency unless it is a blue-chipper i.e. Revis. They did a great job last year of signing guys at good prices. I think it was the best free agency I've ever seen with the broncos, even if you take out the Manning signing. The only signing that could be described as anything but a success would be the Porter signing, and things might have been different there if he had not been ill.

pass on Smith. Hasn't he underachieved every year with the exception of last year when he was playing for a contract? And I believe he wants LT money.

He's been solid but great with the expect of his rookie year when sucked big time. For the right price he could be very nice signing to play RT/OG for this team.

Well, I wasn't really advocating signing him. Going to cost too much guap.

This should be our priority FA target

Dannell Ellerbe, ILB, Ravens -- He's a young tackling machine who was the best linebacker on the Super Bowl champs. At 26, he's the right age.
