2012 NFL Free Agent Linebackers

By: Roshan Bhagat

Curtis Lofton (ATL) - After finishing fifth in the league in tackles (147) and leading the team for the third consecutive year, Curtis Lofton will seek a high-end deal this offseason, perhaps like the one David Harris recently received from the Jets. Like Harris, he's a solid downhill linebacker and a key to the front 7.

Stephen Tulloch (DET) - Tulloch left the Titans to sign a one-year deal with the Lions. At 5'11, 240, Tulloch is a compact middle linebacker that can shed and tackle, which is a lot more than can be said about a lot of linebackers in today's game. The Lions will almost definitely be interested in locking up Tulloch long term, but they will likely not be the only interested suitor.

Dan Connor (CAR) - Early in the year, Connor got lost in the depth of the Panthers elite linebacking corps. However, with injury taking its toll on the unit, he was thrust back into the starting lineup playing solid football. With a deep linebacking unit, Connor will probably try to test the market to see if he can secure a guaranteed full time starting position elsewhere.

London Fletcher (WAS) - Though Fletcher will be 37 by the start of next season, he's coming off a season where he was as productive as any linebacker in the league. Both sides have expressed strong interest in each other, likely extending his stay in Washington.

David Hawthorne (SEA) - After another solid, but unspectacular season for the Seahawks, Hawthorne will have a crack at free agency. Hawthorne's play doesn't make him a must re-sign in Seattle, but his productivity as a starter will make the Seahawks at least extending an offer to him if the interest isn't excessive elsewhere.
