Two cornerbacks have been signed in the past two days: Asante Samuel heads to rival Philadelphia Eagles and Drayton Florence signs with the Jaguars.
Donte Stallworth signed with the Cleveland Browns, a team looking like a force to be reckoned with this coming season. The Vikings are looking to sign Bernard Berrian. The Jags signed wide receiver Jerry Porter. Wide out Isaac Bruce is a 49er now.
NFL.com also reports that Shaun Alexander, Warrick Dunn, DeShaun Foster, Travis Henry, Rudi Johnson, LaMont Jordan and Edgerrin James all could be released within a few months. Of those, Dunn would be a good back to have paired with Marion Barber. Rumors are that the Cowboys are looking at Tatum Bell in Detroit, who is in his fourth season with the Lions. Bell hasn’t done much in the NFL and he may be a risk pick. I think Dunn, if released, could run the ball well with the Cowboys offensive line blocking for him.
But the free agency pool of good players is quickly drying up. If Dallas doesn’t make a move soon, there will be plenty of speculation that someone is going to be traded on or near draft day.
Here is a good site to track free agent signings.
