The market for cornerbacks has been brutal. That may be why players like Brent Grimes, Nnamdi Asomugha and Antoine Winfield are fighting for the last penny. Savvy veterans in general haven’t been very sought after. Imagine how shocking it would be to hear just two years ago that guys like John Abraham and Dwight Freeney were still just floating around in free agency.
Jake Long was supposed to set the market for offensive tackles once he signed his four-year, $34 million contract. But plenty of quality players are still available, such as Sebastian Vollmer and Eric Winston.
Most teams still have plenty of cap room available, but with league meetings going on in Arizona, it seems like free-agent transactions have significantly slowed down. Things will pick up again soon, as there are still many top players available.
