Dwight Freeney/UFA (exclusive franchise player)
Justin Smith/UFA (franchise player)
Charles Grant/UFA (franchise player)
Jared Allen/RFA - He asked to be traded but that's unlikely to happen. Their pass rush isn't very good to begin with and they can't afford to deal Allen.
Grant Wistrom/UFA - He may retire although there should be teams that would be interested in him as a third end.
Bobby McCray/RFA - He's coming off of a very good season and should attract interest next year as a UFA.
Courtney Brown/UFA - This could be it for the oft-injured end.
Cory Redding/UFA (franchise player)
Ian Scott/UFA - It looks like his choices are coming down to signing with Minnesota or Atlanta.
James Reed/UFA - He should be able to get a job as a fourth tackle.
Lional Dalton/UFA - He should be able to get a job as a fourth tackle.
Johnathan Sullivan/UFA - The former draft bust could be out of chances to land with a team.
Ed Hartwell/UFA - After not missing a game in the first four years of his career, Hartwell has missed 19 games in his last two seasons.
Peter Sirmon/UFA - Surprisingly he hasn't received much attention in free agency. He still should be able to get a backup job by the start of training camps.
Randall Godfrey/UFA - He may play one more season.
Junior Seau/UFA - He hasn't said whether or not he wants to play again.
Lance Briggs/UFA (franchise player)
LaVar Arrington/UFA - He's coming off of a serious injury and isn't a lock to play this season.
Carlos Emmons/UFA - He's almost at the end of his career.
Dexter Coakley/UFA - He should be able to find a backup job by the start of training camps.
Troy Vincent/UFA - It appears he still wants to play.
Tony Parrish/UFA - He had a few visits recently.
Gerome Sapp/UFA - Baltimore has interest in re-signing him.
Asante Samuel/UFA (franchise player)
Tory James/UFA - He wants a starting job but teams only want to pay him backup money.
