Mega-Merge: 2010 Free Agency Rumors and Reports Thread
 
My free agency spreadsheet is almost done, but in the meantime, I thought I'd throw up a "best available" players cheat sheet. Available implies a UFA who does not wear a franchise tag.

1. Julius Peppers, DE, Age 30, Rating 92
2. Ben Watson, TE, Age 29, Rating 91
3. Gary Brackett, LB, Age 30, Rating 91
4. Kevin Walter, WR, Age 29, Rating 89
5. Bobbie Williams, G, Age 33, Rating 88
6. Darren Sproles, RB, Age 27, Rating 88
7. Chad Pennington, QB, Age 34, Rating 87
8. Aaron Kampman, DE, Age 30, Rating 86
9. Nate Burleson, WR, Age 29, Rating 86
10. Keith Bulluck, LB, Age 33, Rating 86

I'm going to use this thread to throw up all the "player x released" news links, which will leave it all in one place to add to the FA spreadsheets.

Glad to see Kevin Walter on the list. Perfect, affordable replacement for ARE with knowledge of the young Shanny offense.

Darren Sproles is just what this offese needs....besides 3-4 line men. lol. But if we don't have to give up draft picks to get him then make the move asap.

Because our runningbacks can't score unless we are at the one (and that has been elusive too). We could also use a boost in the return game.

That being said, if his market value is more than a 2 or 3 million a season, I would rather draft someone.

Is there any chance we could trade Betts to San Diego for the right to wear the powder blue jerseys?

I would like to see Walter. I would also like to see if we could get Sage from Minny for a reasonable price.

When ARE is gone, I am doing a jagrbomb.

I'd like to see Sproles here, and Bullock might not be bad if we signed him to play the other LB spot in the 3-4.

You definitely have a point i just think RB are a dime a dozen, we could just draft one in the lower rounds, kinda tired of picking up other team's players who are looking for a big payday.

I think the days of us paying everybody big bucks are over. (I hope they are.)

If? You think we could sign him for 1.5 or something? haha

I don't get this whole RBs are a dime a dozen thing either. Sure they're not valued as high or for as long anymore, but it's not just the line that makes the back, the line can make a back look a lot better, but a line doesn't add vision, adjustments, breaking tackles, ball control, etc.

There's a reason why guys get cut every year, not because everyone in front of them is amazing, because some guys suck (relatively). If great RBs were so easy to come by we wouldn't have bounced around Marcus Mason so much and we'd already have Betts riding the pine full time.

JLC is reporting that the Saints aren't going to tender Jahri Evans! I wonder if he's gong to get the tag?
