Updated Best Available Free Agents-Offense

There are still some decent running backs and wide receivers left on the free agent market that could provide solid depth.

Daunte Culpepper - He's had visits with the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers. Green Bay reportedly offered him a one-year deal.
Tim Rattay - He's likely going to be a No. 3 quarterback for any team that wants to sign him.
Jamie Martin - We're told he still wants to play.
Craig Nall

Running Back
Shaun Alexander - He struggled mightily last season and may have to wait awhile longer in order to find a new home.
Cedric Benson - Despite his misgivings, you're looking at a talented back who fits in a power rushing scheme.
Travis Henry - He might have a hard time finding a starting job again after what transpired over the last year with the Denver Broncos. And Henry reportedly failed a recent drug test which would have him suspended for a year.
Ron Dayne - Despite performing reasonably well for the Houston Texans the past two seasons, Dayne remains unemployed.
Mike Bell - He was with the Houston Texans for about a week but they waived him after he suffered a hamstring injury.
Kenny Irons - The former second-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals is coming back from ACL surgery.
Najeh Davenport - The bulky back should be able to find a job once some teams start to lose backs due to injury in training camp.
Mike Anderson - He may decide to retire and he's also suspended four games by the NFL.
Anthony Thomas - The power runner is best suited to handle a No. 3 role at this point in his career.
Verron Haynes - The former Pittsburgh Steeler could handle a No. 3 running back role.
Eric Shelton - The former second-round pick of the Carolina Panthers may have run out of chances after being waived by the Washington Redskins recently.
Samkon Gado - He worked out for the New England Patriots recently but it's believed he wasn't offered a contract.

Eddie Kennison - He recently told Sirius NFL Radio that he's interested in playing at least two more seasons.
David Givens - His career is in doubt after suffering a serious knee injury almost two years ago.

Doug Gabriel - He was recently released by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Eric Moulds - He's received mild interest around the league.
Peerless Price - He's probably done playing because of a neck injury.
Keenan McCardell - He said recently that he still wants to play.
Aaron Moorehead - He offers a team value as a No. 4 receiver.

Tight End
Marcus Pollard - He might be at the end of his career after being released by the New England Patriots recently.

Ryan Neufeld
Tim Euhus
Bennie Joppru
Mike Seidman

Offensive Tackle
Luke Petitgout - He failed a team physical by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently.
Fred Miller - With rookie OT Chris Williams out for a while, the Chicago Bears could push to re-sign him.

Stockar McDougle - He's coming back from a torn Achilles tendon.
Wayne Gandy - He may be done playing.
Mike Rosenthal

Ruben Brown
Todd Steussie (T)

Mike Flanagan
Tyson Walter
Mike Pucillo

Jay Feely - The Miami Dolphins released him recently. He'll receive interest around the team from any team that is in need of a kicker.
John Carney - We're told he definitely wants to still play. Two possibilities are the with the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs.
Billy Cundiff - He was released by the Kansas City Chiefs recently. Because there's a lack of available talent at kicker, Cundiff should be able to find a job.
Morten Andersen - Even though he turns 48 in late August, Andersen hasn't officially retired.

Scott Player - He spent a few weeks with the New England Patriots recently.
Josh Miller - He was recently released by the Tennessee Titans.
