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...

Re: Any good D-End Free Agents

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.
