Who Wins Free Agency?

Tyler CarrCorrespondent IMarch 8, 2009

Who wins in free agency? Is it the defensive tackle who signs a $100 million contract? Or is it the tight end who gets a fresh start? Could it be a baggage carrying wide receiver who finally gets out of the NFC?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are wrong.

Massive Albert Haynesworth (6-6 320) signed a seven-year $100 million, $41 million guaranteed contract with Washington Redskins. Haynesworth is an eight-year vet with a knack for being dominant.

However, Haynesworth has many concerns. Anger issues and durability issues haunt Haynesworht's performance. Do 271 career tackles and 24 sacks outweigh the fact that he only averaged 13 starts over the past four seasons?

Kellen Winslow. On paper is one of the best tight ends in the NFL. However, looking at the 2,459 yards he has gained so far shows some of the problems he has come across. Winslow has showed what he is capable of in 2007 when he caught 82 passes for over 1,000 yards.

However, Winslow appears to be lacking from his motorcycle accident in 2005. Winslow appears to have a bad attitude at crucial times when his team needs him to be a leader.

Now Winslow heads to Tampa Bay, where the Buccaneers are in desperate need of a constant offensive threat.

Terrell Owens is now with his fourth team in 15 seasons. This is also his first tenure out side of the NFC. The change of scenery is a good thing for Owens. His tenure in Dallas had grown sour due to actions on his behalf and the Cowboys as well.

In Buffalo, Owens fills a void with in the organization and Owens will be the big play threat the Bills have been lacking. Knowing the history of Owens the question to be answered is how will he interact with Trent Edwards, Marshawn Lynch and company?

The world of free agency is a dog eat dog world. Now can these three dogs earn their bones?
