Any good D-End Free Agents
 
Are there any good D-Ends that will be free agents this coming offseason? I dont know if we could afford John Abraham, but if he didn't sign w/ the Jet, could we?

John Abraham - 10.5 sack/58tkl/16 games
Darren Howard - 3.5 sack/33tkl/12 games (11.0 sack / 46tkl in '04)
Kalimba Edwards - 7.0 sack/32tkl/16 games
Aaron Kampman - 6.5 sack/82tkl/16 games
Robert Mathis - 11.5 sack/56tkl/13 games (!) <-- but probably the Freeney effect
Kimo von Oelhoffen - 3.5 sack/36tkl/16 games (and 1 QB career ended)
Kyle Vanden Bosch - 12.5 sack/66tkl/16 games
Orpheus Roye - 3.0 sack/88tkl/16 games

Abraham is the biggest name, for sure, but will want the most money as well. Most believe Vanden Bosch to be the best young talent but I suspect he will be a hot commodity.

If you believe Mathis isn't just basking in the glory of the Freeney Effect, he could be a great pickup.

Personally, I like the idea of a Darren Howard or Kalimba Edwards, as both are solid ends who probably wouldn't break the bank.

Mathis is undersized at 6'2", 235. I think you are spot on in attributing his sack numbers to Freeney starting at the opposite end. I would prefer one of the others.

Yeah, but isn't Mathis a RFA? The Redskins can't keep giving away draft picks, those things are just too valuable. I agree with you on Howard and Edwards, though.

I believe he is, yes. My thinking was that Indy has some contract issues of their own to sort out. Like, a ridiculous number of cap issues.

I can't believe that team couldn't win this year. Man, anybody who feels bad about our cap situation and where we finished, whoo...

Kampman and Howard all the way...

Out of that list based on skill, production this year and $$$$ Robert Mathis is Our Guy

mathis is too much for our cap numbers this year :( bosch may be too... kampman looks good with 82 tackles and 6.5 sacks, howard wouldn't be a bad pick either. JA is someone i hope we absolutely do not get though. High price, bad attitude.

btw, on the depth charts mathis isn't a starter, but a situational pass rusher... he's good though.

It would not shock me at all to see the Eagles trade Jevon Kearse this off-season.

jevon is a guy that williams really liked...

There's some guy's coming out this year who look like they have a lot of potential, I believe North Carolina has 2 bookends who may be available, I forget their names though. But they have good size for DE's.
