2012 NFL Free Agents

With the conclusion of the Regular season, most NFL teams now have only the off-season to look forward to. A lot of teams are already searching for new Head coaches and figuring out who they will be targeting in next year's draft. The other important part of off-season where teams can quickly increase team talent is Unrestricted free agency. In this article, I took a look at each player set to be a Free agent in 2012, and ranked them accordingly. Hopefully this article can become a reference for fans looking into potential free agent signings! Enjoy.

Last update April 17th.
I used the below scale to rank each Free agent:

 - Definite starter

- Probable starter

- Low-end starter / Band-aid / Project

- Backup / Risky starter / Low-end project

- Depth / Camp body


Interesting FA:

Young struggled with PHI but could be a project.
Vince Young, PHI
Young struggled in his opportunity in Philadelphia, and was reportedly lazy which is why he found himself 3rd on the depth chart so long behind Mike Kafka. Vince Young is a mental midget but the tools are there... He'll find himself on an NFL roster but where and what role he will have is anyone's guess.

Matt Leinart, HOU
Matt Leinart has not had an easy time in the NFL. To make matters worse, the moment he gets his chance again with Matt Schaub being hurt, he also gets hurt and a 5th round rookie, T.J. Yates, impresses. With Yates looking to be a very solid backup for the Texans, Houston opted to release the former Top-10 pick. He could still be a decent backup option or possibly compete for a starting job somewhere. An interesting option would be to join his former college coach, Pete Carroll, in Seattle.

Donovan McNabb, MIN
There's a reason why McNabb didn't get a call after being released by Minnesota despite multiple teams needing Quarterbacks due to injury... the dude is done. He seems stubborn about his playstyle, no matter what he refuses to listen to coaches about how to improve his game. McNabb has had a nice career, but its pretty much over now. I'd be pretty shocked to see him in another uniform... time to retire, man.

The Others:

Dennis Dixon, PIT

Billy Volek, SD
Sage Rosenfels, HOU
Chris Redman, ATL
Kyle Boller, OAK
Charlie Batch, PIT
Byron Leftwich, PIT
A.J. Feeley, STL 

Luke McCown, JAC
Kevin O'Connell, NYJ
Curtis Painter, IND
Tyler Palko, KC


Interesting FA:

Benson has had a rocky career, but is a solid FA RB.
Cedric Benson, CIN
Benson has been a pretty good back for the Bengals, except for his character issues. He is rather pedestrian, though with average power and speed. However, he has the ability to be a very tough and reliable runner if his offensive line is good enough. The Bengals will try to resign Benson, but another team who needs a Runningback could try to snatch him away.

Ryan Grant, GB
Grant wore out his welcome in Green Bay. While he is still a pretty good runner, Grant is injury-prone and has a fumbling problem. These two things caused him to lose his role to younger guys like James Starks. Ryan Grant could still find work in the NFL. I consider him a low-end starter or a compliment back. Ryan Grant is a pretty good blocker and receiver, so he is quite versatile.

Tim Hightower, WAS
Getting hurt didn't help Hightower's chances at being signed to a big deal. And with Roy Helu stepping up in Washington, Hightower may be on his way out. Like Hillis, Tolbert, and Lynch, Hightower is a bruiser. He runs hard, and would be a nice compliment back. He's also still pretty young and wouldn't demand a huge contract like Lynch or Hillis might.

LaDainian Tomlinson, NYJ
Tomlinson took a pay cut to be with the Jets again this year, and played backup to Shonn Greene. He still saw the field a lot in passing situations, and proved to be still a reliable receiver out of the back-field. He may return to the Jets, but if not, he should be able to find work elsewhere. Obviously, he won't be the main guy anymore, but still could provide an edge in the passing game and take some carries due to his reliable arms.

Ronnie Brown, PHI
Ronnie Brown really did not fit into Philadelphia's system, but could find work somewhere. He has lost a lot of his speed and burst since his early years with the Dolphins but remains a solid runner as well as a good pass protector. He has severe injury issues, so he won't find himself a job as a premiere back, but could be a compliment back for some team.

The Others:

Ahmard Hall, TEN
Earnest Graham, TB
Lousaka Polite, NE
Thomas Jones, KC
Joseph Addai, IND

Justin Forsett, SEA
Derrick Ward, HOU
Chester Taylor, ARI
Mewelde Moore, PIT
Cadillac Williams, STL
Jerious Norwood, STL

Moran Norris, SF
Lorenzo Booker, MIN

Wide Receivers

Interesting FA:

Wallace is a RFA.
Mike Wallace, PIT
The Steelers are not tagging Mike Wallace, but he is still a Restricted Free Agent, so he will still probably end up in Pittsburgh. All this means is that other teams can bid on Wallace, while the Steelers either get the final say or some hefty compensation. Mike Wallace is easily more valuable than DeSean Jackson as far as speedy Wide receivers go but no one in their right mind would pay Mike Wallace huge bucks then send a 1st to Pittsburgh for the receiver's services.

Jerome Simpson, CIN
Simpson did himself a nice favor in his contract year, developing into a solid #2 guy with rookies A.J. Green and Andy Dalton. I think the Bengals will try to keep him as to not break up the synergy that exists. Simpson is a very athletic WR, capable of making some big plays.
UPDATE: Now that he's pleaded guilty on Drug charges, Simpsons' value drops considerably. He will almost certainly see an NFL suspension, so this is terrible timing for Simpson. He may have cost himself a big payday. At this point, I think he'll be resigned by the Bengals, no other team will take the risk I believe.

Plaxico Burress, NYJ
Burress didn't have a Michael Vick-like rebound, but did manage to be a pretty nice red-zone target due to his size and strength for the Jets. Still, he wasn't great and his speed was an issue. He may be resigned by New York but will find a job somewhere in 2012.

Braylon Edwards, SF
Braylon Edwards was cut by the 49ers before Week 17 due to his injury, and the fact that the Niners weren't planning on keeping him. Prior to the injury in pre-season, he seemed to be very determined however. Braylon Edwards is a deep-threat wide-out, who has always had catching issues. However, he was pretty effective with the Jets. With his value now low, the Jets may look to re-sign Edwards if they let Plaxico Burress walk. I do not think Edwards is done in the NFL, and can still be a good deep threat for some team.

Mike Sims-Walker, JAC
Despite being very talented, Sims-Walker has struggled staying on an NFL roster in recent seasons. He believes he should get the ball more, and also probably overvalues himself. He failed to make an impact on a bad Rams WR corp earlier this season and only had one reception back with the Jaguars before going on I.R. His entire value is due to his 2009 season when he had 63 receptions and 7 touchdowns. But I'm not convinced Sims-Walker can do it again... he may be a one-year wonder. In a deep WR year, Sims-Walker will have trouble finding any interest but he will be signed somewhere for depth.

Terrell Owens, CIN
Owens did not find an NFL team last season due to lingering injury... and I'm really torn about his value in 2012. On one hand, Owens was pretty effective with the Bengals in 2010. But his age is an issue since he lost a step, and his character concerns are always an issue. If he's okay with being a role player, he may draw a few workouts in 2012's free agency. However, this may also be a good time for him to retire.
UPDATE: Owens signed a contract with the Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League. I expect his interest from NFL teams hinges on how well he plays there.

Roy Williams, CHI
Once considered a very good #1 WR, Roy Williams seems to have lost himself. He hasn't had a great season since 2007, and failed to contribute in a very weak Chicago wide receiving corp. With Mike Martz on his way out in Chicago, there is very little chance he gets resigned. Williams still has issues catching the football, and his speed has diminished with injury. He still has a large frame and can be a nice red-zone target, but at this point, I don't know if we'll see Roy Williams as an NFL starter again.

The Others:

 Earl Bennett, CHI

 Jerheme Urban, KC
Bernard Berrian, MIN
Greg Camarillo, MIN
T.J. Houshmandzadeh, OAK
Patrick Crayton, SD

Tight ends

Interesting FA

Cut during IND's youth movement, Clark is still a top TE
Dallas Clark, IND
Indianapolis released five more players on March 9th, the most interesting of which being Dallas Clark, who despite injuries, is probably capable still one of the best receiving Tight ends in the league when healthy. It will be interesting if he ends up following Peyton Manning to the team he decides to go. It looks like some team is about to inherit a bunch of ex-Colts...

Visanthe Shiancoe, MIN
Shaincoe is a do-it-all Tight end. He's got sure hands and is also one of the league's better blockers at the position. Minnesota has a lot of youth at the Tight end position, making Shaincoe expendable. Teams looking for a good blocking Tight end will look at Shaincoe, who is versatile enough to find a job anywhere.

Jeremy Shockey, CAR
Carolina often used two TE sets this season, featuring Olsen and Shockey, but Olsen was clearly the guy. Jeremy Shockey may look elsewhere for 2012, including his home-town team, Miami. Anthony Fasano is likely on his way out with Sparano leaving and the Dolphins are in big need of a receiving Tight end. Shockey hasn't been quite as effective since his injury with the Giants, but has still found a way to be productive.

The Others:

Bo Scaife, TEN
Jim Kleinsasser, MIN
Craig Stevens, TEN 

Mike Leach, ARI
Joe Zelenka, ATL
Gary Barnidge, CAR
Richie Brockel, CAR
Zach Potter, JAC
Justin Peelle, SF
Billy Bajema, STL

Offensive linemen

Interesting FA:

Will McKenzie be retained?
Kareem McKenzie, NYG (OT)
Kareem McKenzie has developed into a pretty solid LT for Eli Manning and wants to get a decent payday in 2012's free agency. He enters a pretty weak Offensive tackle class. McKenzie is a stronger pass-blocker than run-blocker, and could be a pretty good OT for a team looking for a quick fix at the position. He will probably end up being resigned by the Giants, however, since the Giants don't have anyone who can really step in at LT.

Jake Scott, TEN (OG)
The Titans' line is hurting, and they can't afford to let their best interior lineman leave. Jake Scott excels at pass-blocking, but is still a pretty good run-blocker. If Chris Johnson is to retain his 2000 yard form, they will want to lock Scott up. However, many teams are looking for interior linemen and some may offer Jake Scott more than the Titans would be willing to pay.

Bobbie Williams, CIN (OG)
Bobbie Williams is getting up there in age, but he has been a solid Guard since coming into the league in 2000. He's been a big part of the Bengals' ability to run the ball in recent years, but spent a lot of the 2011 season injured. The Bengals will probably want to resign him, but he may demand more money than he is worth.

Jason Brown, STL (C)
Since becoming the highest-paid Center of all time for the Rams in 2009, Jason Brown's career has been a roller-coaster ride. At times, he still looked like he was the best Center in the league. At others, he looked horrid. The Rams finally decided to cut their losses by cutting Jason Brown. This isn't to say that Jason Brown isn't a quality Center still. Most of the reason the Rams decided to get rid of him was his outrageous contract. If brought in for the right price, Jason Brown could find himself as a solid starter for some team.

Andre Gurode, BAL (C)
Gurode served as good interior offensive line depth for Baltimore last season. He is far form the form he was when he was a Pro-Bowl center for the Cowboys, but he could attract some Free agent attention this offseason. If Birk retires, Baltimore could look into extending Gurode. But Gurode is also an older lineman, and has injury concerns.

Barry Richardson, KC (OT)
Like Levi Brown, Barry Richardson could get more than he's worth in this Free agent class. Barry Richardson has been a solid RT for the Chiefs, and the Cheifs probably wouldn't want to lose him, though. I expect him to remain a Chief.

Marcus McNeill, SD (OT)
Once considered one of the game's premiere Left Tackles, Marcus McNeill has seen his stock fall due to injuries and his huge contract. San Diego had no choice but to eventually release him, and here he is. If he can get healthy, he will be a quality addition to any team. However, the real trick is getting - and staying - healthy.

Defensive linemen

Interesting FA:

Will Carter return to the Patriots?
Andre Carter, NE (DE)
Andre Carter was by far New England's best pass rusher in 2011 before going down to injury, obtaining 10 sacks in 14 starts. If it were not for a very deep 4-3 DE Free agent market, this might earn Andre Carter a big pay day. But due to his age and the amount of competition around, Carter will not get the contract he probably deserves. The Patriots will likely want to resign Carter, and Carter will probably want to remain a Patriot. But if the right offer comes Carter's way, he may take it.

Aubrayo Franklin, NO (NT)
I'm still pretty shocked how little attention Franklin got last off-season, he gets another chance this time around. Franklin is best suited to play 3-4 Nose tackle, a position that quite a few teams are always seeking. For the team that misses out on Garay, Franklin may not be a bad consolation prize.

Aaron Smith, PIT (DE)
Aaron Smith has probably been the best 3-4 DE in the last decade, but its time to call it a career. He's starting to be rotated out for younger talent, and is not nearly as effective as he once was. I can't really see him going anywhere other than Pittsburgh if he does play next season, and it would probably only be as a rotational player.

Interesting FA:

Henderson is an excellent runstuffing MLB.
E.J. Henderson, MIN
Henderson is one of the league's most underrated MLB, and is a piece that Minnesota cannot afford to lose if they want to remain competitive. The problem is with Henderson is now he is on the wrong side of 30, so teams (including Minnesota) may be wary of giving him a long-term deal. While he's a great run-defender, he often struggles in coverage due to his declining speed. He'll probably resign with Minnesota, but may consider other options if the deal is sweet enough.

Interesting FA:

FS Atogwe has a lot of potential but is a risk.
O.J. Atogwe, WAS
The Redskins had no room for Atogwe once they got hit with their $36 million Cap penalty, instituted by the NFL for front-loading contracts during the uncapped 2011 NFL season. O.J. Atogwe, while overrated by some, is still a quality Free Safety, all things considered. With Michael Griffin tagged by the Titans, he easily becomes the one of the best Free Safeties available in this Free agent class.

Yeremiah Bell, MIA
To outsiders, this may have seemed like a puzzling move, cutting what is believed to be a solid Strong Safety, but make no mistake, most Dolphins fans expected this. Bell is a classic Strong Safety, something of a dying breed at the NFL level. He may have led the Dolphins in Tackles once again, but Bell is a liability in coverage. He could be a solid rotational player for a team as a run-stuffer but not for his previous contract. I wouldn't mind if the Dolphins signed him back to a cheaper deal.

Chris Harris, DET
An All-Pro in 2010, Harris looked really lost in coverage in 2011 and was even cut by the Bears. He joined the Lions off waivers, but didn't really get a starting gig there either. Giving up so many big plays will not make it easy for Chris Harris to find an NFL team in 2012.
