    ZZR's Restricted Free Agent List

    I got to thinking after reading the "What Should The Rams Do With Their Remaining Cap Money" thread on the main board. I've put together a list of RFA's team-by-team and gave them a 4-star rating system.

    Here's the rating system I used.
    * - DEPTH/SPECIAL TEAMS
    ** - AVERAGE STARTER/GOOD DEPTH
    *** - SOLID STARTER
    **** - GOOD STARTER

    Players in BOLD are guys that I happen to really like, taking into account talent, compensation and our needs.

    Code:
    TEAM  POS  PLAYER            RAT  COMP
     ARI   FS  Quentin Harris      *  NONE
     DET   CB  Chris Cash         **  5th
     GBP   DE  Aaron Kampman       *  5th
     MIN   FS  Brian Russell      **  NONE
     SFF   OG  Eric Heitmann      **  7th
     SFF   OG  Kyle Kosier         *  7th
     WAS   FS  Andre Lott          *  5th
    
     BAL   TE  Terry Jones         *  5th
     BAL   SS  Chad Williams      **  6th
     DEN   CB  Kelly Herndon     ***  NONE
     IND   OG  Tupe Peko         ***  NONE
     JAX   LB  Akin Ayodele     ****  3rd
     KCC   LB  Scott Fujita      ***  5th
     OAK   LB  Tim Johnson         *  NONE
     PIT   FS  Chris Hope       ****  3rd
     SDC   DE  DeQuincy Scott     **  NONE
     TEN   DE  Carlos Hall       ***  7th
     TEN   LB  Brad Kassell        *  NONE
    Some bigger names (Will Demps, Andra Davis, Will Witherspoon, etc.) were left off because the compensation was simply too high.

    Not sure I'd spend a third rounder on Chris Hope, but I agree with everyone else you bolded. I think Peko would be a nice pick-up as well.

    Well done Zig. Does anyone know if the FA FS's are getting the kind of money that the CB's are? If not, maybe Chris Hope would be someone to consider. He sounds like he's a hard hitter and is pretty good on special teams as well. Here's his profile:

    I meant to put Peko in bold. FIXED.

    Also, I wouldn't expect free safeties to get contracts nearly as high as cornerbacks are getting. Mainly because it's easier to find a solid FS than it is to find a good starting QB.

    Nice job, ZZR. RFAs tend to get overlooked during the FA season, way to stay on top of it.

    That's where some of the best value is. We've got a few draft picks to throw around so I'd like to see us go after a couple of these guys.

    It looks like Seattle's made the first RFA move. They offered Kelly Herndon a 4-year deal I believe. I don't know much else about the deal but Denver has 7 days to match.

    Nice list, Zig. The guy I'd look at is Carlos Hall. He's a decent pass rusher and a 7th is a nominal price to pay.

    I agree totally, AV. I also really like Chris Cash. He'd be an awesome nickelback and would be a good starter in emergency situations. I'd give up a 5th for him.
