    UFA Class of 2010

    From Peter king SI


    1. Vince Wilfork, NT, New England. With more teams valuing 3-4 tackles, Wilfork will be in demand.
    2. Karlos Dansby, MLB, Arizona. Watch his 2008 postseason and you'll see he's going to be well-paid.
    3. Julius Peppers, DE, Carolina. He woke up about three weeks ago. He's ridiculously talented, obviously. Question is, who's going to pay $12 million a year or so for Peppers, knowing they have absolutely no idea what kind of production he'll give?
    4. Aubrayo Franklin, NT, San Francisco. The best run-stopper you've never heard of, and he won't cost what Wilfork will get.
    5. Kevin Walter, WR, Houston. Productive, smart and willing to play any role, outside or slot.
    6. Ryan Pickett, NT, Green Bay. Three nose men in the top six. Dr. Z would be so proud of me.
    7. Ryan Clark, FS, Pittsburgh. Underrated soul of the Steelers defense, but he's absorbed lots of hard hits.
    8. Aaron Kampman, OLB/DE, Green Bay. I get the feeling he wants to put on a few pounds and go back to end, which he feels is his home.
    9. Antonio Bryant, WR, Tampa Bay. I'd like to see him stay healthy and attitude-free.
    10. Justin Bannan, DT, Baltimore. Someone will probably pay this Baltimore role-player too much, but if you surround him with good penetrators, he'll help.
    11. Darren Sharper, FS, New Orleans. Normally, I'd say a 34-year-old player (his birthday was last Wednesday) should be avoided in free agency. But the age rules don't apply to Sharper, Ray Lewis and Jack LaLanne.
    12. Brian St. Pierre, QB, Arizona. Someone might see him as 2010's Matt Cassel and go buy him for a fifth of the cost.
    13. Ben Watson, TE, New England. Patriots never seemed to warm to him. Maybe another team will.
    14. Roy Williams, S, Cincinnati. Career rehab is going just fine, but he's not going to be the big star he was for a couple of years in Dallas.
    15. Chad Pennington, QB, Miami. I might be wrong. I think if I were running Cleveland, or some team looking to develop a rookie quarterback next year, I'd pay Pennington $4 million to play for a season, hold the fort, and teach the kid how to be a professional.




    Who do you think we should sign?


    Kevin Walter will help out our Wr corps
    Darren Sharper would be a nice addition.... I doubt the saints will let him go

    I think we can rule out most of these names just on price alone. I think the only realistic free agents from this list that we could go after are Franklin and Walter. Franklin seems to fill a hole we have at DT, and could probably be picked up for fair market value. Walter as well, only at WR. I think these guys would provide good production without breaking the bank.

    I'm thinking that Aaron Kampman might not be as costly as before this past season. Let's face it he is being misused and, as a result, his stats are going to be down. He just may come cheaper than expected. Plus, you know that he's going to want to definitely go to a 4-3 team like the Rams over another 3-4 team like Green Bay.

    Wonder if he could play right defensive end so we can finally move C. Long out of there and over to the left side.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Don't know about the rest but I think he'll be on the Rams radar / top of the list.

    Agreed. Especially with Spags as our coach. There might be a mutual love!

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    kampman is already 30, as are a number of guys there. unless we think we can contend next year i don't see why we go after anyone above 28 or so.

    agreed. We're already so far in the the rebuilding direction, why would we start over with what we were doing before, in signing overpriced, aging veterans? This is not to say Kampman wouldn't perform well for our squad, it's just counter-productive to what we've been doing as an organization this year.

    How many 27 year old DEs are on the included list?

    We don't have to sign him to an expensive long-term deal. Maybe 3 years at a reasonable rate will do the trick. My point was that he is currently playing in a system that does not manifest his talents. He needs to get to a 4-3 team and the Rams are just that. Plus we have a crying need for a RDE now that Long has shown that he is not as effectively playing on the right side.

    This looks like a good deal for all parties concerned. BTW we still have an aging but rather effective James Hall and Leonard Little both of whom are over 30+.

    Well I'm not sure how we're doing cap wise, but assuming we have another high draft pick this year, that's three contracts of around 50-60 million, no? Combine that with Bulger's and Jackson's contracts, and I predict we keep it tight again next year, spending wise. I just can't see us spending money on a guy that doesn't help us with our plan for the future. For the record, I think Kampman would be a solid contributor on our squad.
