WR Miles Austin
The former two-time Pro Bowler has had his issues staying on the field in recent seasons. Austin missed six games in 2011 and five more contests in 2013. This past season, he totaled just 24 catches for 244 yards and didn’t score a touchdown for the first time in the past six years.
WR Earl Bennett
In six seasons with the Chicago Bears, the former Vanderbilt Commodore totaled 185 catches for 2,277 yards and 12 scores. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, under head coach Lovie Smith, were thought to be a landing place (per Roy Cummings of The Tampa Tribune) before the team landed wideout Mike Evans in the first round of the draft.
G Daryn Colledge
In eight seasons, the former Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals performer has started 124 out of 128 regular-season games, starting every game for the latter each of the past three seasons. ESPN's Adam Caplan reported that Colledge is scheduled to visit with the Philadelphia Eagles this week.
WR Santonio Holmes
The former Super Bowl XLIII MVP is having a difficult time finding a team, but perhaps that will change as he gets healthier. Holmes is an eight-year veteran who began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers and spent the last four seasons with the New York Jets.
Could a team like the Cleveland Browns take a flier on him? Holmes is familiar with head coach Mike Pettine from their time spent together in New York and could help immediately should Pro Bowl wideout Josh Gordon be gone for half or all of 2014. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport named Holmes and Miles Austin as two players for Browns fans to monitor at receiver.
G Davin Joseph
Joseph was part of the 2014 housecleaning with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The eight-year pro missed all of 2012 due to injury but came back to start all 16 games with the Bucs in 2013.
While the former two-time Pro Bowler had his struggles this past season, Zuri Berry of Boston.com reported that Joseph visited with the New England Patriots last week.
G Uche Nwaneri
The seven-year pro and former Jacksonville Jaguars guard started 91 out of 95 games he played the past six seasons. You would think that the 6’3”, 303-pound veteran could add some depth to a team like the Miami Dolphins or perhaps the Seattle Seahawks.
CB Asante Samuel
This past season, the 11-year pro totaled only one interception while racking up 30 tackles and three passes defensed in 11 games. Samuel has 51 career interceptions with the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons.
And let’s not forget his prowess in the postseason; Samuel has picked off seven passes in 21 postseason games and owns NFL postseason records for interception return yards (227) and interception returns for touchdowns (four).
