List updated as of 9/19/2006
Blue = former Patriots
* + italics= Had tryout with New England
italics = Team had contact with / reported interest in
Todd Bouman - He still has a strong arm and is a decent option to be a team's backup.
Jay Fiedler - Needs to prove his shoulder is healthy.
Tommy Maddox - A decent option as a team's No. 2 quarterback. Had visits with Miami, Oakland, and New Orleans earlier this year.
Vinny Testaverde - Cleveland has interest in him should their current plan for the No. 2 job not pan out.
Tony Banks - Could fill a role as a No. 2 quarterback.
Shane Matthews - Strictly a No. 3 quarterback.
Lamar Gordon - A once promising back has bounced around the last few seasons and hasn't received a lot of attention in free agency.
Bruce Perry - Could return punts or kicks and could fill a role as a team's third back.
James Hodgins - Above average blocker at his position.
Troy Fleming - He was a surprise release by Tennessee but still could start for a team.
Jarrod Baxter - Decent blocker and can start if needed.
Charles Rogers - Immense talent but a big underachiever. Tried out for a few teams recently but remains unsigned.
Tyrone Calico - The oft-injured player has a ton of talent and could fill a team's No. 3 role or better.
Randy Hymes - Big receiver that moves well. Could fill a team's No. 3 role.
Kevin Johnson - Clearly the best free agent receiver out there and could fill a team's No. 3 role.
David Boston - Had a good camp with Tampa Bay and could fill a team's No. 3 role.
Johnnie Morton - Could still fill a role as a team's No. 3 receiver.
Ricky Proehl - He still wants to play a few more years and brings an excellent veteran presence with him. He could fill a No. 3 or No. 4 role.
Todd Pinkston - Needs to prove he hasn't lost a step despite coming back from a torn Achilles.
Patrick Johnson - Could fill a role as a team's fourth receiver.
Marc Boerighter - Could fill a role as a team's fourth receiver and has good size.
Troy Edwards - Decent option in the slot.
Derick Armstrong - Has good size and ability but has been an underachiever.
Rashaun Woods - Former first-round pick has been injured most of his short career.
Zach Hilton - Slow, plodding tight end but has enough upside potential to be a team's No. 3 tight end or better.
Lamont Hall - Known for his blocking only.
Marcellus Rivers - Decent option as a third tight end.
Ron Stone - It's kind of surprising that he's still available. He's clearly not the player he once was but, at worst, he could provide solid veteran depth for team.
Ross Tucker (OT, C) - Was starting for Cleveland in the pre-season for a short time. Slated to work out for St. Louis on Tuesday.
William Whitticker (OT) - Started last year for the Packers and could be a solid backup for a team.
Victor Riley (OT)
Larry Moore (C)
Torrin Tucker - He's coming back from a knee injury but if healthy, he could fill a role as a third tackle for a team.
Orlando Brown - His starting days are clearly over but he could provide backup depth if needed.
Jeff Mitchell - He probably could still be a starter but it appears he wants to retire.
Cory Raymer - A solid backup.
Todd Peterson - Atlanta seems content on passing on him. He'll get a call from a team that isn't happy with their kicking game.
Paul Edinger - Poor on kickoffs but decent on field goals. He worked out for the Jets recently.
Aaron Elling - He's seen as a kickoff specialist.
Martin Gramatica - May be at the end of the line.
Jose Cortez - Kickoff specialist only.
Kyle Richardson - Still a decent option for a team that needs a punter.
Tom Tupa - Another ageless punter who could still get it done for a team.
Chad Lavalais - Started off his career well but has fallen on hard times or late. When motivated, could be a solid third tackle for a team.
Lance Legree - Can play inside or outside as a rotational player.
Brenston Buckner - Certainly could fill a role as a team's third or fourth tackle.
Jerry Deloach - Should find a job likely with a team that plays the 3-4.
Ed Jasper - He's still capable of being a team's fourth tackle.
Gary Walker (DE in a 3-4) - Injuries have worn him down but he could have enough left to be in a backup role.
Travis Hall (DE in 3-4)
DeQuincy Scott - Recently failed Tennessee's physical yet sources say there's nothing wrong with him. If healthy and at the top of his game, he could be a solid third end for a team.
Duane Clemons - Could fill a role as a team's third end.
Michael Haynes-Basically a fourth end.
Carl Powell (DT)
Earl Holmes - It's kind of surprising that he's not on a team. He could start easily for many teams if needed as he can play in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme.
Rocky Calmus - He's had a lot of injuries but he's still very young and is healthy.
*Chris Claiborne (WLB) - He's coming off of knee surgery but when healthy, he's capable of starting.
Saleem Rasheed - Decent reserve who can play inside or outside.
Trev Faulk (OLB)
*Jamie Sharper (ILB/WLB/SLB) - He can play just about any linebacker position and might have a few years left.
Barrett Green (WLB) - Was once a decent starter a few years ago but has bounced a round. A solid option as a backup.
Peter Boulware (SLB) - Probably a situational pass rusher at this point of his career.
Chad Brown (ILB)
DeLawrence Grant (SLB)
Alonzo Jackson (SLB)
Marcus Reese (SLB)
Eddie Moore (SLB)
Chris Clemons (SLB)
Will Peterson - Back problems are leaving his career up in the air.
Donald Strickland - Could fill a nickel or dime role for a team.
Joseph Jefferson (S)
Willie Middlebrooks (S)
*Lance Schulters - Could certainly still start for a team. Seattle showed interest in him earlier this year.
Jay Bellamy - Former long-time starter for the Saints and should have a few good years left as a starter or third safety.
*Brent Alexander - He worked out for Seattle recently and could be a team's No. 3 safety.
Kim Herring - Could fill a backup role for a team.
Jerome Woods - He would like to start for a team but probably best used as a backup at this point in his career.
*Keion Carpenter - Carpenter is known for his leadership and is a solid backup at this point in his career.
