    2006 Free Agents (by expected $ signing bonus)

    PFT 2006 FREE AGENCY RANKINGS
    POSTED: February 23, 2006

    Anyone can list free agents, or apply a letter grade or a number score to each of them. In the modern NFL, however, money talks and bullsh-t walks (it smells really, really bad, too).

    So we'll list the 2006 free agents based on one and only one factor -- the signing bonus that the player is expected to receive.

    Scientific? Hardly. Accurate? Perhaps. We had Reggie Wayne pegged at a signing bonus of $12.5 million -- and the contract he agreed to on Wednesday included a $13.5 million.

    For players wearing the franchise or transition tag, there's a possibility that they will play under the one-year tender.

    Here we go . . . .


    John Abraham, DE (franchise tag): $14.0 million.
    Steve Hutchinson, OG (transition tag): $13.0 million.
    LeCharles Bentley, C: $12.5 million.
    Shaun Alexander, RB: $12.5 million.
    Nate Clements, CB (franchise tag): $12.0 million.
    Julian Peterson, LB: $10.0 million.
    Edgerrin James, RB: $10.0 million.
    Darren Howard, DE: $9.5 million.
    Matt Lepsis, OT: $9.0 million.
    Gerard Warren, DT: $8.5 million.
    Jeff Backus, OG (franchise tag): $8.5 million.
    Antonio Bryant, WR: $8.5 million.
    Drew Brees, QB: $8.0 million.
    Charles Woodson, CB: $8.0 million.
    Larry Tripplett, DT: $8.0 million.
    Rocky Bernard, DT: $7.5 million.
    Will Witherspoon, LB: $7.0 million.
    David Thornton, LB: $7.0 million.
    Brian Williams, CB (transition tag): $7.0 million.
    Antwaan Randle El, WR: $6.5 million.
    Will Allen, CB: $6.0 million.
    Kevin Shaffer, OT: $5.0 million.
    Anthony Weaver, DE: $5.0 million.
    Jamal Lewis, RB: $5.0 million.
    DeShaun Foster, RB: $5.0 million.
    Aaron Kampman, DE: $4.5 million.
    David Givens, WR: $4.5 million.
    Toniu Fonoti, OG: $4.5 million.
    Jon Kitna, QB: $4.5 million.
    DeShea Townsend, CB: $4.0 million.
    Koren Robinson, WR: $4.0 million.
    Adam Vinatieri, K: $3.5 million.
    Chris Hope, S: $3.0 million.
    Ahman Green, RB: $3.0 million.
    Justin Hartwig, C: $3.0 million.
    Nick Greisen, LB: $3.0 million.
    Adam Archuleta, S: $3.0 million.
    Dexter Jackson, S: $2.5 million.

    After lookin at those prices I'd much rather have jamal over edge.
    I Love Kerry Collins (and John Rocker).

    Jamal sucks and he would be a horrible fit with our new offense.

    The $4 mil for K-Rob is a more realistic than the $10 mil one of the papers thought he might get.

    I like to be thrifty/stingy :grin:. And no I am NOT Red McCombs.

    RB: Ahman Green/Deshaun Foster/Najeh Davenport. Since we have Mewelde and since we're actively looking for an RB who can carry 20-25 times (Childress claimed this) we can afford to be conservative with the budget here.

    LB: Will Witherspoon. Julian Peterson is intriguing but has been injured recently.

    WR: Koren Robinson. I think this is already in the works.

    OT/OG: Jeff Backus. Hutchinson would be awesome but might be too expensive. Fonoti would be OK if he can get in shape! Don't know much about the other offensive linemen.

    I think that still adds up to more than our cap allows. Hey, not my problem :wink:!
    Halo 4. Start another fight.

    I just don't understand some people on here. A guy wins the rushing title a fews years ago and now they say he sucks and they wouldn't want him on our team.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    Toniu Fonoti, OG: $4.5 million?????

    WHAT?????

    The guy is overweight. Got injured and played about 10 downs all season long. I can't believe his worth. I mean I know he USED to be good. Anybody hearing how he's coming along weight and injury wise?
    Wonder if he'll be with us next year.

    i dont care how good your line is you dont rush for 2000 plus yards as jamal didm and not have talent. this guy is a great rb who had fallen on hard times for something he did BACK IN COLLEGE. he did the right thing by working hard in jail to get better. thats the only problem hes ever had . he will get much better this year. you watch.
