The "B" free agents are quality players. They'd be great backups or solid rotational players anywhere; given a perfect fit they could start and play well.
Many of these players are young veterans who either haven't gotten a shot or have gotten a shot but couldn't quite lock down a starting job. Many of them are longtime starters beginning the backside of their career. Some of them are outstanding players, but with a specialized or rotational role.
Shonn Greene has never lived up to expectations, but he finished 2012 strong on a very poor Jets team. Will Heller has been a very reliable two-way tight end, stuck behind two quality pass-catchers in Detroit's lineup.
Bryant McKinnie has struggled with his weight but played very well during the Baltimore Ravens' playoff run. If he can keep healthy, he can still be a quality starter. If not...
Osi Umenyiora is not the terror off the edge he once was, but he's more than capable of providing a pass rush boost to a team that needs one.
