    The best potential free agents under 4-year rules

    Sidney Rice(notes), WR, Minnesota Vikings

    The Vikings would be very wise to hold onto their best receiver with first-round pick Christian Ponder(notes) still waiting to get his feet wet in an NFL sense, but it's going to be tough. Rice may be dinged to a degree as an injury risk after last year's hip problem, but GM Rick Spielman has already said he'll do everything possible to have Rice as the center piece of Minnesota's passing offense in 2011 and beyond.
    Ray Edwards(notes), DE, Minnesota Vikings

    Edwards had already said that he doesn't see his future in Minnesota, and a reversion to four-year rules would just about cinch that outcome. Expect him to draw serious money after a breakout season in 2010, where he matched Jared Allen(notes) as a primary pass rusher.

    Player Comb Total Assist Sck Fumb
    Jared Allen 60 45 15 11.0 1
    Ray Edwards 37 28 9 8.0 0

    Given that JA gets more attention from the OL then I'd expect better numbers from a DE having a 'breakout' season. Let him go and use the money he'd want on more deserving players. Let someone else pay elite money for an average DE.

    Here is a more complete list.

    Quarterbacks Matt Moore (Carolina), Drew Stanton (Detroit), Matt Leinart (Houston), Tyler Thigpen (Miami), and Kellen Clemens (NY Jets ).

    Running backs Jason Snelling (Atlanta), DeAngelo Williams (Carolina), Brian Leonard (Cincinnati), Brandon Jackson and John Kuhn (Green Bay), Joseph Addai (Indianapolis), Ahmad Bradshaw (NY Giants), Michael Bush (Oakland), Jerome Harrison (Philadelphia), and Ahmard Hall (Tennessee).

    Tight ends Jeff King and Dante Rosario (Carolina), David Thomas (New Orleans), Kevin Boss (NY Giants), Zach Miller (Oakland), and Daniel Fells (St. Louis).

    Offensive linemen Deuce Lutui and Lyle Sendlein (Arizona), Doug Free (Dallas), Ryan Harris (Denver), Dylan Gandy (Detroit), Daryn Colledge (Green Bay), Rashad Butler (Houston), Ryan Cook (Minnesota), Kevin Boothe (NY Giants), Samson Satele (Oakland), Max Jean-Gilles (Philadelphia), Willie Colon (Pittsburgh), Jeromey Clary (San Diego), and Leroy Harris (Tennessee).

    There may be a few missing from this list, such as Braylon Edwards.

    I thought that list looked a little funny when I first saw it. I think it is missing the free agents who have been in the league for awhile.

    Here's the other list I have for wide receivers.

    Randy Moss,
    Terrell Owens,
    Chad Ochocinco,
    Steve Smith,
    Plaxico Burress,
    Braylon Edwards

    Edwards isn't worth half of what he thinks he is. Glad to see him go.

    I bolded the players I hope we at least take a look at. I want to say that there are a couple missing from the list ( I did add in the WR's that were missing, but the OL list looks a little short).

    These are the good players from that list that we should try to sign.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Whats really sad is that they are FA's at all.

    They have some more to take care of that are due next year as well that will cause some ugly ripples through the locker room if they don't take care of them.

    Contracts

    Again, you extend your starts 1 or even 2 years out. You don't let them hit FA for cripes sake.
