This is going to be a short one.... after two days, we haven't signed the first free agent. We're still waiting on his majesty Manning ~ Soliai committed highway robbery against the Phins (better them than us). Mike Adams and Brandon Meriweather have been in the building, but no signings as of yet. We haven't even been able to negotiate a long term contract with our own Brodrick Bunkley.
I'm guessing the idea is to keep cap space clear until Manning makes up his mind, but they're going quick!!!
As of right now - this is a list of what's still available to us:
WR: Brandon "The Walking Pie Hole" Lloyd (NOPE!) ~ Mario Manningham ~ Braylon Edwards ~ Ted Ginn, Jr. ~ Deion Branch ~ Jerome Simpson ~ Eddie Royal ~ Plaxico Burress ~ Steve Smith (PHI) ~ Hines Ward ~ Legedu Naanee ~ Chaz Schilens ~ Roy Williams ~ Anthony Gonzalez ~ Roscoe Parrish.
OL: Eric Winston ~ Marcus McNeil ~ Demetrius Bell ~ Levi Brown ~ Jeff Backus ~ Geoff Schwartz ~ Anthony Collins ~ Steve Hutchinson ~ Evan Mathis ~ Travelle Wharton ~ Jake Scott ~ Vernon Carey ~ Eric Steinbach ~ Scott Wells (bigtime All-Star Center) ~ Chris Myers ~ Dan Koppen ~ Samson Satele ~ Matt Birk ~ Jeff Saturday Todd McClure ~ Jason Brown ~ Jeff Faine.
DT: Kendall Langford ~ Jason Jones (another fan fave) ~ Sammie Lee Hill ~ Albert Painsworth ~ BRODRICK BUNKLEY!!! ~ Derek Landri ~ Antonio Garay ~ Luis Castillo ~ Amobi Okoye ~ Marcus Thomas ~ Aubrayo Franklin ~ Justin Bannan ~ Kelly Gregg ~ Gerard Warren ~ Shaun Rogers ~ Casey Hampton (many speculate he'll be a cap casualty) ~ Anthony Hargrove.
LB: Curtis Lofton ~ London Fletcher ~ Erin Henderson ~ Leroy Hill ~ Manny Lawson ~ Rocky McIntosh ~ Phillip Wheeler ~ WESLEY WOODYARD!!! ~ Stephen Tulloch (why did the Titans/Lions not want him?) ~ David Hawthorne ~ Dan Conner (fan fave) ~ DeAndre Levy ~ Jameel McClain ~ Jonathan Goff ~ Joe Mays ~ Bradie James ~ James Farrior Gary Brackett.
Many of these guys have probably signed while I was typing this, but this goes to show you several players are left. Let everyone else blow their cap room and pay mediocre players like All-Pro's (Laurent Robinson ~ Eric Wright ~ John Carlson ~ Robert Meachem) while we patiently wait in the shadows for a perfect time to pounce. EFX is waiting to do something.... I just hope that "something" bypasses Peyton Manning. Tim Tebow is young, promising, and has done something that rarely happens to a first time starting QB - a playoff win!!!
