As we wait for Nnamdi Asomugha to make a freakin’ decision to set the market for Johnathan Joseph, Antonio Cromartie and other top-end free agent defenders, we’re fully expecting several free agents who have already had their markets set to get deals done in the very near future. To name a few…
What’s taking so long for him to sign? At this point, you’d have to think that it’s either Denver or the Giants for Bradshaw, who can and will demand something in the DeAngelo Williams range. The 25-year-old Bradshaw, who has averaged 4.8 yards per carry in his four-year career with the G-men, is clearly the best back on the market.
Predicted destination: Giants.
It was believed that the Redskins wanted him, but then Washington gave starting money to former Cowboys 3-4 end Stephen Bowen. Jenkins has a unique skill set as a five-technique end, which could mean he ends up in Dallas or back in Green Bay (the Saints are reportedly in the mix too). We’re wondering why the Packers haven’t taken care of this yet, but we’re thinking a bidding war between Green Bay and Dallas will conclude today.
Predicted destination: Cowboys.
The Titans, Falcons and Seahawks have reportedly shown interest in Edwards, who has 16.5 sacks in his last two seasons but is apparently asking for a lot of money. Edwards can base his deal on the one Charles Johnson signed with the Panthers earlier this week, so it shouldn’t take much longer for him to make a decision.
Predicted destination: Titans.
The Jaguars swung and missed in an attempt to land Eric Weddle, but they can probably sign Landry for less money. The good news is that Weddle’s contract with San Diego set the market. The bad news is that the Weddle contract was massive, forcing the Jags to break the bank for Landry (or Michael Huff, Donte Whitner, etc.)
He’ll be released by the Titans and will be up for grabs later today. The Raiders and Dolphins have been mentioned as potential suitors, although I think the Eagles would make a better fit. Regardless, VY will likely begin 2011 as a backup.
