    Market for defensive tackles slowly forming

    Jason La Canfora's Blog

    Many of the top free agents at defensive tackle are still available, and the market for their services has been slow to form, according to agents and general managers to whom I’ve talked.
    The top available players – Cullen Jenkins, Aubrayo Franklin and Brandon Mebane — have yet to agree to terms, while Haloti Ngata has yet to work out a new deal with the Ravens that gets him off the franchise tag.
    It’s clear that teams have been hesitant to wade in too deeply to this point. Jenkins is being pursued by Dallas and New Orleans, according to league sources, while Franklin is expected by many to land in Kansas City. Seattle has put offers in front of Mebane before and after the lockout, but nothing is imminent at this point.
    Denver, St. Louis, Cleveland and Chicago also are shopping for defensive linemen, but they could end up making more bargain plays in the market. On that level, Saints DT Anthony Hargrove and Colts DT Dan Muir are garnering attention.

    You may want to include that this is from Jason La Canfora's blog, unless you've been in contact with agents and GMs and just happened to reach the same conclusion.
