AC North

Tennessee – CB R.J. Jamison
- While FB Josh Hamernik was signed for a longer contract with more money and will also be a starter, Jamison plays at a more vital position. There is a conflict already between Jamison and Herman Dodge, the secondary leader, so that bears attention.

Shreveport – DE Isaac Elliot
- Elliot is listed as a RDE which already has an again, yet still performing, starter in Jesse Kotomski. My guess is that one of the two will be moved to LDE and become the starter to shore up a hole on the line.

San Antonio - None

New Orleans – TE Melvin Brandon
- With only one signing, this was easy. Brandon is a former undrafted free agent signing by the Raging Horde in his second year who made 20 catches on 24 targets (a pretty damn good percentage) in his rookie year. The Raging Horde saw enough in him to resign him to the roster.


AC South

Iowa City – QB Leon Dishowitz
- Dishowitz spent 10 seasons in Cleveland and was the starter for 9 of those. He fills a huge hole as the starter for the immediate future.

Detroit - None

Cleveland – RB Corey Mayes
- Mayes is a former 1,000 yard rusher (twice, actually) during his four year career and becomes the starter for the Sentries. He did have a down year with only 455 yards last season but he only started 2 games. This is his chance to prove that he is not a declining talent.

Kansas City – S Colby Phillips
- Phillips resigned with the Crows and is an above average player but fills a hole at strong safety.

AC East

St. Louis – RB Sawyer Farmer
- The Arch lack true star power at running back and Farmer was brought in to be the starter. Farmer spent four season in Boise and starter a total of 8 games with an average of 2.88 yards per carry. There are six running backs on the roster so this will be a shootout in preseason to see who wins the job.

Omaha – WR Dixon Powell
- The Arrowheads are always very active in free agency and this year is no exception. They are all in on Powell, as he is the only signing with a total contract value over $10 million (his contract is for $103.2 million). Getting a talent like this, in only his 7th year and at wide receiver, may turn out to be one of the best signings of the year.

Baltimore – LB Floyd Russell
- If you thoughts Omaha was active then look at Baltimore. So far there are 16 signings, including two with a total value over $100 million. FB Mel Griffey, P Nick Ali, WR Archie Lindsay, K Brian Sanford and CB Amos Irvine are all big time players who would start on most teams in the league. The prize of free agency was Russell, a dominant inside linebacker who instantly makes everyone around him a better player. As a team this is one of the best front office jobs.

Durham - None


AC West

Atlantic City – CB Parker Sprout
- The Phantoms were active on the secondary market and brought in or resigned seven secondary players. Sprout is not a top twenty corner in the league but upgrades a secondary that was the weak link last year.

Hartford – QB Jerald Cowher
- The Attack are always good for at least one big splash in free agency and this year it was at quarterback. Hartford always seems to have one of the top quarterbacks in the league. To make that happen this season, they went out and signed the best quarterback in free agency. Cowher is a 13 year veteran who has had some great seasons and some poor ones. It will be fascinating to see how he performs in Hartford.

Brooklyn – S Ty Matthews
- Brooklyn was another active team in free agency and Matthews was their prize signing. He fills a need at strong safety not only as a top safety (over 100 tackles each of the past two seasons) but also as a secondary leader.

Boston - None


NC North

Death Valley – WR Bryson Saddler
- Finding good wide receivers is becoming harder and harder every year, as shown by the $41 million, 3 year deal signed by Saddler. FB Thomas Grier was another good signing but based on the positions, it is advantage wide receiver.

Texas – DE Jimmy Brady
- CB Darrell Hansen was signed for more money but Brady, despite his age, is still one of the top pass rushers in the league (100 sacks in his twelve year career). The deal is also cap friendly at 1 yr and $11.67 million.

Santa Cruz – ILB Jimmie McGee
- McGee was resigned after playing seven games and proving that despite being an undrafted rookie he could play in the CFL. He can run forever and is a tough run defender.

Atlanta – WR Gus Seidman
- As we mentioned earlier, acquiring top wide receivers is tough. The Wolfpack were able to sign a very good one. As long as he doesn’t have a bad training camp (he is in his 10th year) Seidman should help rookie #2 overall pick Irv Clements first season a bit easier.


NC South

Oregon – OLB Quinn England
- The Ice had some very good signings, including but England plays at another tough place to get talent: linebacker. He becomes the best linebacker on the roster and should help take some pressure off of defensive tackle Stan Simmons, a star with little support behind him.

Alaska (Anchorage) – DE Martin Midget
- The Kodiaks resigned or signed a whopping 22 players in free agency so far. They did an excellent job of avoiding the huge contracts and signed players to fill needs. Six of the unrestricted free agents signed were on the defensive line and Midget is the best of them.

Boise City - None

Seattle – OLB JJ Rogues and Dwight Lugar
- Like the Kodiaks, the Spartans avoided the splashy deals and attempted to build some depth. I am going to cheat a bit here and choose two players as the best signing. Both a 9 year veteran linebackers with similar skill sets. Whichever one can hold his ratings will be the one the fills a need at linebacker and thus is the best signing so far.


NC East

Fargo - RB Steven Negron
- Negron joins his 3rd time in the past 5 seasons so it is pretty clear that he is on the downside of his career after 12 seasons. That being said, what a career it has been with 8 seasons with over 1,000 yards rushing. That doesn’t include one year of 999 and another year of 990. He only ran for 564 yards last season for Shreveport but he is far and away the best option for the Frontier.

Denver – TE Carson Monroe
- The Dynamite have been pretty quiet in free agency, with only 2 signings. Monroe comes over from Omaha, where he one catch. Yeah, I would say it has been quiet in Denver.

Tulsa – DT Albert Spencer
- Spencer signed for 5 yr, $139 million so that right there makes him the Talons best signing. A former first round pick in 2045, Spencer has 15.5 sacks in his five year career and he should be a force in the middle with returning defensive tackle Skip Hayes.

El Paso - None


NC West

Los Angeles – C Darnell Sitron
- The Outlaws swung and miss on quite a few players so they concentrated on re-signing players for depth. The best of the unrestricted free agents is Sitron. LA has a very good center in Cary Thompson but he is a 14 year vet. If not this year, down the road Sitron may battle Lionel Reese for the starting center spot.

Las Vegas – RB Chandler Falcon
- The Rounders only signed one unrestricted free agent so far but were another team that resigned their own. The best of that group is Falcon. He won’t see much time behind Devan Fulcher and Gilbert Narcisse but he has too much upside to have let him get away.

Tucson – ILB Demetrius Baylor (renegotiated contract)
- The Toros have major cap issues so they were not a factor in free agency. In fact, their only signing was a long snapper. Once again, we will cheat here a bit and choose the Baylor renegotiation. The 4 year deal keeps him in Tucson while also freeing up some cap room to sign their rookie class.

Honolulu – C Ronnie Guthrie
- Guthrie is one of the top centers in the league having started every game for Baltimore over the past 7 years.


What do you think?

Awesome write up.

DT, A. Spencer was originally signed to move to LDE to fill the hole from not resigning DE Brady who was a strong force at the left side getting 11 sacks last year. Drafting DE Lahr was not really in the plan so we'll see what ends up happening.

Great write up. I knew I was drafting a QB so my goal in free agency was to get a couple of weapons for him, since the skill position players were pretty weak when I took over the team. We've got a long road ahead of us but I'm excited to start this rebuilding process
