Examining the remaining free agent market

PFT has done a good job tracking all the moves, here is a snapshot of some of the talent that is left out there, from their perspective.

The avalanche of free agent acquisitions didn’t slow down over the weekend. That figures to change this week, because the numbers of quality free agents has dropped dramatically.
Our top-80 free agent list is hardly perfect, but it gives us a broad look at what type of player is out there.
1. 16 of our top 20 players have been signed. Our best remaining guys: Zach MillerBraylon EdwardsMatt Roth, and Aubrayo Franklin.
2. 39 of our top 50 players have been signed.  The middle tier guys still available:Kevin BossSteve Smith (NYG), Carlos RogersRonnie BrownDashon GoldsonJared Gaither, and Malcom Floyd.
3. 59 of our top 80 players have been signed.  No. 80 Randy Moss has retired.  Names towards the bottom list: Shaun EllisKirk MorrisonMarc Bulger,Jason SnellingBo ScaifeManny Lawson, , Le’Ron McClainRicky Williams, and Tommie Harris.
While this is a rough approximation, about 75% of the quality free agents out there have been accounted for.  Not bad for a week of action.
To stay on top of all the moves big and small, keep checking back with ouracquisition tracker and release tracker.
