Wish List: Update

Posted by: Shaun Dolence

Okay, so maybe the free agent wish list that I recently assembled was a little optimistic. Teams are beginning to focus more on retaining their own talent, proven by an unprecedented fourteen players being given the franchise tag this year. As a result, a majority of the big names are no longer available. A quick recap of how things have developed regarding my wish list of potential free agents:

Player 2008 Team Status
Jordan Gross Carolina Re-signed with Carolina (6 years, nearly $60 million)
Nnamdi Asomugha Oakland Re-signed with Oakland (3 years, $45.3 million)
Julius Peppers Carolina Designated franchise player by Carolina
T.J. Houshmandzadeh Cincinnati Set to become a free agent, Cincinnati opted to use franchise tag on Shayne Graham
Albert Haynesworth Tennessee Will likely become a free agent and command over $10 million a year

The only two players who are still available are T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Albert Haynesworth; I’ve posted several times about how Haynesworth’s character and market value will keep the Seahawks away from him, but Houshmandzadeh is still a possibility. We’ll have to wait and see what direction the Seahawks will take in free agency.
