Top NFL Free Agents: OC
1. Scott Wells, Green Bay Packers – (SIGNED with St. Louis)
Wells is a tremendously consistent and steady C. He is due a huge pay raise and will likely be one of the top paid centers in the league. Green Bay has a tough decision to make, especially with a lot of high profile players to resign this year and future years.
2. Chris Myers, Houston Texans – (RESIGNED with Houston)
Myers had a breakout year and was one of the highest graded Centers by Pro Football Focus. Myers was the AFC Pro Bowl representative at center and should be able to pick and choose where he wants to play.
3. Nick Hardwick, San Diego Charger – (RESIGNED with San Diego)
Hardwick said recently that he is going to consider retirement this off season. If he decides to play he will have interest from a lot of teams.
4. Dan Connolly, New England Patriots – (RESIGNED with New England)
I put Connolly ahead of Koppen simply because he played last year. Connolly ha played both OG and OC extensively the last two years as an injury fill in. I think New England brings Connolly back and gives him a shot at the starting center spot.
5. Dan Koppen, New England Patriots – (RESIGNED with New England)
Koppen has been a key cog during the Patriots “run”. He missed the year with a broken fibula and the Patriots OL didn’t miss a beat, which is likely a sign that they will move on without him.
6. Samson Satele, Oakland Raiders – (SIGNED with Indianapolis)
Satele is a very good run blocking OC. He is still young and will be less expensive than some of the other centers on this list
7. Rex Hadnot, Arizona Cardinals – (SIGNED with San Diego)
Hadnot started every game last season for the Cardinals
8. Jeff Faine, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Released by the Buccaneers, the former first round pick can still play at a decent level
9. Jeff Saturday, Indianapolis Colts – (SIGNED with Green Bay)
Saturday might opt to retire, or try to play 1 more year. Either way its with another team.
10. Todd McClure, Atlanta Falcons – (RESIGNED with Atlanta)
11. Andre Gurode, Baltimore Ravens
12. Scott Mruczkowski, San Diego Chargers – (RESIGNED with San Diego)
13. Mike Pollak, Indianapolis Colts – (SIGNED with Carolina)
14. Will Montgomery, Washington Redskins – (RESIGNED with Washington)
