As we (football fans, you/me) prepare for the annual NFL Scouting Combine next week, it’s a reminder that the 2010 NFL Free Agency period is not far behind—March 5 to be precise. Here’s a handy list of what players who will be unrestricted free agents in this upcoming, uncapped year. Check it out and start making your own list of who your favorite team should keep and/or pursue.
The list isn’t as impressive as last year’s, but Carolina Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers certainly stands out as one of the most coveted free agents. The Panthers have until Feb. 25 to place the franchise tag on their (arguably) best player and keep him on their roster. But they aren’t about to do that because it would mean Julius would be making more than $1 million/game. Look for Julius in a new uniform this year.
