New Free Agency Winners and Losers

Top 2007 Free Agent DB

By: Greg Davis

QB | RB | WR | OL | DL | LB | DB | K | Possible Trades

Nate Clements, UFA, Buffalo Bills
Clements should be the top target of teams looking for help in the secondary. He’s young, highly regarded, and very talented. Buffalo would like nothing more than to have him signed to an extension as quickly as possible, but his talent—he does have two Pro Bowl selections—may lead him to test the market. Without an extension, the Bills must decide if they are willing to franchise tag Clements once again to guarantee his presence on the gridiron for one more season. Since Clements has not been adversely affected by NFL officiating changes, most NFL teams will pursue the cornerback if he hits the market.

Ken Hamlin, UFA, Seattle Seahawks
Hamlin is a talented safety with the potential to get even better. After an injury caused him to miss ten games last season, he rebounded mightily this season with 96 total tackles, three interceptions, and a pair of sacks; he was able to equal his career sack high and just fall short of tying his high for interceptions and total tackles. The athletic defensive back could be a valuable asset to most teams, and the Seahawks will work hard to re-sign him, because—when healthy—Hamlin is one of the better safeties in the NFL.

Nick Harper, UFA, Indianapolis Colts
The Colts aren’t likely to try and spend too much to retain Harper, but they will make an effort to keep him depending on the price he desires. Harper has been a consistent player for the Colts, with at least 66 tackles and three interceptions each season over the past four seasons. However, he will turn 33 later this year, making him older for his position. He isn’t a hot commodity on the market.
