With the NFL’s (ahem) “legal tampering period” now beginning for upcoming free agency later this week, here’s a quick look at prominent names for the Dolphins, Buccaneers and Jaguars that, barring a last minute deal, appear to be available and about to test the market.
Dolphins: There are a lot of decisions to make, and QB Jay Cutler leads the list. His one year $10 million deal is over. Does he come back? Now, several more names in Miami-
OG- Jermon Bushrod- (33) The former Pro Bowler was injured the second half of last year, but has indicated he wants to continue.
RB- Damien Williams- (27) Solid reserve running back, who got a change to share time with Kenyon Drake after Miami traded Jay Ajayi.
DB- Alterraun Verner (29) Brought in as veteran presence, the former Titans Pro Bowler and Bucs free agent signing, played sparingly throughout the year.
K- Cody Parkey (25) Did a solid job after joining the team after week one. He was on a pro rated $650,000 contract last year.
Buccaneers: Having already released RB Doug Martin and DT Chris Baker in February, the Bucs have several more names to watch-
RB Charles Sims (26)- Four years ago, as a rookie, he was touted as an every down back. However, turns out he’s primarily a third down pass catching role player.
OG’s- Evan Smith (31) and Kevin Pamphile (27) have been starters at guard or in Smith’s case, at center some, over the course of the last four years
DT- Clinton McDonald (31)- solid run stopper and locker room leader, but not a lock of impact plays in his three years.
S- Keith Tandy (29)- Keep an eye on who might want the Bucs versatile special teams specialist, who also has developed as a contributing safety, too.
Jaguars: Off their tremendous turnaround season of 2017, the Jags are just like everyone else, evaluating their roster and trying to decide whom they can retain.
WR- Allen Robinson (24)- Looks like he will be allowed to test the market. Robinson did have an awful knee injury in game one last year, but is two years removed from a 1,400 yard season in year two in the league.
DB- Aaron Colvin (26)- Solid corner who might command a good contract from someone this week
QB- Chad Henne (32)- With Blake Bortles being brought back, will the Jaguars brass also bring back the perennial understudy of the last few years?
LB- Paul Posluszny (33)- the veteran finally got experience the playoffs in 2017 after toiling in Buffalo and then Jacksonville. Will the Jaguars want his veteran leadership? At what price?
Time to watch what unfolds over the course of the next two-three days.
