Top NFL Free Agents: OT
1. Eric Winston, Houston Texas – (SIGNED with Kansas City)
Winston is widely regarded as one of the best RT in the NFL. He was curiously released by the Texans the day before free agency started. He is by far the best tackle on the market and should pull in a hefty contract.
2. Marcus McNeill, San Diego Chargers – RETIRED
McNeill is another OT who was released prior to FA. If healthy he is the best LT on the market, thats a big if though.
3. Levi Brown, Arizona Cardinals – (RESIGNED with Arizona)
Brown was scheduled to make over 14 million dollars this year with the Cardinals. Brown’s one of the most overrated OT in the league and wasn’t worth anything near that money. Brown will still draw a lot of interest in a very weak OT class.
4. Jared Gaither, San Diego Chargers – (RESIGNED with San Diego)
Gaither was a promising LT prospect with the Ravens, but injured his back. He was cut by Kansas City, was picked up by San Diego and played pretty well. Gaither is the best OT in a VERY WEAK free agent class.
5. Demetrious Bell, Buffalo Bills – (SIGNED with Philadelphia)
The Bills have struggled to find a viable OT for a long time. Bell is serviceable and has shown signs of getting better. The Bills should focus on trying to resign him, giving lack of available options
6. Kareem McKenzie, New York Giants
McKenzie has been a pretty solid tackle throughout the years. He has a very bad year this season and with his age increasing his opportunities to start may be dwindling.
7. Jeff Backus, Detroit Lions – (RESIGNED with Detroit)
Backus is on his last legs and may get a chance at a rotational tackle spot, but not much more than that
8. Max Starks, Pittsburgh Steelers – (RESIGNED with Pittsburgh)
When Max Starks is the 5th best OT available you know just how bad this OT class is.
9. King Dunlap, Philadelphia Eagles – (RESIGNED with Philadelphia)
10. Anthony Collins, Cincinnati Bengals – (RESIGNED with Cincinnati)
11. Barry Richardson, Kansas City Chiefs – (SIGNED with St. Louis)
12. Breno Giacomini, Seattle Seahawks – (RESIGNED with Seattle)
13. Khalif Barnes, Oakland Raiders – (RESIGNED with Oakland)
14. Stephon Heyer, Oakland Raiders – (SIGNED with New York Jets)
15. Guy Whimper, Jacksonville Jaguars – (RESIGNED with Jacksonville)
16. Pat McQuistan, New Orleans Saints – (SIGNED with Dallas)
17. Brandon Keith, Arizona Cardinals
18. Oniel Cousins, Cleveland Browns – (RESIGNED with Cleveland)
