The frenzy has slowed to a trickle this weekend. After a dizzying week of blockbuster trades and high-octane signings, the free agent market has nearly been picked clean.
There are plenty of attractive options available. Here's a look at nine veterans we like entering the second week of free agency.
Vince Wilfork, defensive tackle: Although Wilfork only has another year or two left, he led the Patriots defensive linemen in snaps last season, carving out space as a run plugger. He has connections to Texans coaches Bill O'Brien, Romeo Crennel and Mike Vrabel from their time together in New England.
Tramon Williams and Charles Tillman, cornerbacks: The cornerback market is wacky. Flash-in-the-pan Perrish Cox got $15 million from the Titans. One-year wonder Chris Culliver pulled in $32 million from the Redskins. And solid veterans like Williams and Tillman can't find work? Tillman has injury and age concerns, but was playing at a high level before tearing his triceps in late September.
Brandon Spikes, linebacker: A condensed version of Wilfork, Spikes has value as a two-down, run-stuffing linebacker. Just don't ask him to cover any running backs or tight ends.
Rob Housler, tight end: Reminiscent of former Cowboys star Jay Novacek, Housler is a freakishly athletic tight end underutilized in Arizona. Bruce Arians asks his tight ends to block first and foremost, which left "move" tight end Housler without a role. He could break out for 50 catches and 700 yards in the right offense, like Atlanta's.
Stefen Wisniewski, center: Still just 25 years old, the versatile Wisniewski has started 61 of 64 games since entering the league as second-round draft pick. So why were the Raiders so quick to move on from him this offseason? It's a good sign that a smart team like the Seahawks is interested in signing him to replace Max Unger.
