1. Nnamdi Asomugha, Oakland. Age: 30.
When looking at his stats, you'd probably wonder why he is the top free agent this offseason. The reason he has barely anything on paper is because he is the most feared player to pass against in the league.
2010 Statistics: 19 tackles, six pass deflections.
2. Champ Bailey, Denver. Age: 33.--Re-signed with Denver.
It would be weird to see him leave Mile-High, but there is a chance for anything, as he may want to sign with a contender.
2010 Statistics: 45 tackles, one sack, two interceptions.
3. Brent Grimes, Atlanta. Age: 28. (RFA)
There is no doubt that Atlanta will tender him, as he had a breakout year in 2010, becoming one of the top cornerbacks in the league.
2010 Statistics: 87 tackles, five interceptions, 23 pass deflections.
4. Jonathan Joseph, Cincinnati. Age: 27.
Still young at 27, Joseph has done enough to cash in this offseason.
2010 Statistics: 42 tackles, three interceptions, eight pass deflections.
5. Antonio Cromartie, New York Jets. Age: 27.
It looks like the New York Jets will let him walk, and he will be picked up quickly.
2010 Statistics: 42 tackles, three interceptions, 17 pass deflections.
6. Brandon Carr, Kansas City. Age: 25.
Carr has turned into a great cover-cornerback for Kansas City, and its a high priority for them to re-sign him.
2010 Statistics: 57 tackles, one interception, 25 pass deflections.
7. Ike Taylor, Pittsburgh. Age: 31.
After a couple rough seasons, Taylor enjoyed a impressive year in 2010 as the teams best cornerback.
2010 Statistics: 66 tackles, two interceptions, 11 pass deflections.
8. Ronde Barber, Tampa Bay. Age: 36.--Re-signed with Tampa Bay.
The 15-year veteran has a few more seasons left in him, but I don't see him doing that with any team but Tampa Bay.
2010 Statistics: 82 tackles, three interceptions, 13 pass deflections.
9. Carlos Rogers, Washington. Age: 30.
He was constantly injured last season, which was probably the biggest reasons for his struggles. But he has shown enough in recent years to get a good contract.
2010 Statistics: 54 tackles, two interceptions, 12 pass deflections.
10. Richard Marshall, Carolina. Age: 26.
After whining for a new contract during training camp, Marshall had a bit of troubles in 2010.
2010 Statistics: 88 tackles, three interceptions, seven pass deflections.
11. Chris Carr, Baltimore. Age: 28.
When Baltimore needed a cornerback, Carr was able to step up and become the teams top cornerback. He impressed, and did enough to earn an extension.
2010 Statistics: 61 tackles, two interceptions, eight pass deflections.
12. Eric Wright, Cleveland. Age: 26.
I've been waiting for him to breakout, but I am starting to believe it won't happen. While he has always been a good cornerback, he is very inconsistent and is nothing more then a number two.
2010 Statistics: 42 tackles, one interception, nine pass deflections.
13. Josh Wilson, Baltimore. Age: 26.
Along with Carr, Wilson was able to put together an impressive season for the Ravens.
2010 Statistics: 40 tackles, three interceptions, 14 pass deflections.
14. Chris Houston, Detroit. Age: 26.
The Lions were so desperate for a cornerback, that they made Houston their top guy, and actually didn't play too bad. He won't be a number one cornerback anymore, but did enough to put himself on the radar.
2010 Statistics: 56 tackles, one interception, 12 pass deflections.
15. Kelly Jennings, Seattle. Age: 28.
Jennings probably won't earn himself a starting job, but does add good depth.
2010 Statistics: 40 tackles, one interception, 13 pass deflections.
1. O.J. Atogwe, St. Louis. Age: 30.
He was the heart of the Rams defense for a while, but was released so they could save eight million dollars. While there is a still a chance of his return, many teams have shown interest in him and he has been interested in leaving for many years.
2010 Statistics: 73 tackles, three interceptions, nine pass deflections.
2. Eric Weddle, San Diego. Age: 26.
Probably the most underrated safety in the league, Weddle continues to put up good numbers for San Diego. He has earned himself a big contract.
2010 Statistics: 96 tackles, two interceptions, 10 pass deflections.
3. Dawan Landry, Baltimore. Age: 28.
Landry has always been great in run-defense, but really improved this year in coverage and earned himself a big contract as well.
2010 Statistics: 111 tackles, four pass deflections.
4. Roman Harper, New Orleans. Age: 28.
People love to hate against Harper, but you can't argue what he's done on paper. Sure, he struggles in pass coverage, but he is one of the leagues best safeties when it comes to run-defense.
2010 Statistics: 98 tackles, six forced fumbles, eight pass deflections.
5. Quintin Mikell, Philadelphia. Age: 30.
Mikell has done a good job taking over for Brian Dawkins, and would be a big loss if the Eagles let him walk.
2010 Statistics: 88 tackles, three interceptions, 15 pass deflections.
6. Bob Sanders, Indianapolis. Age: 30.
After ending another season on injured-reserve, Indianapolis grew tired of his injuries, so they released him. The former Pro Bowler, when healthy, is no doubt one of the top safeties in the league.
2010 Statistics: Suffered a season-ending injury, did not accumulate any stats.
7. Michael Huff, Oakland. Age: 28.
After struggling to start the season off, Huff went on to have an impressive year.
2010 Statistics: 94 tackles, three interceptions, seven pass deflections.
8. Donte Whitner, Buffalo. Age: 26.
Whitner will rack up tackles, but that's about all you will see. After being involved in trade rumors last season, I don't expect him to return to Buffalo.
2010 Statistics: 140 tackles, one interceptions, seven pass deflections.
9. Gerald Sensabaugh, Dallas. Age: 28.
Sensabaugh came out of nowhere to become Dallas' best defensive back. He should cash in this offseason.
2010 Statistics: 71 tackles, five interceptions, 10 pass deflections.
10. Daniel Manning, Chicago. Age: 29.
Manning is a guy that every team would like to have on their roster. Not only he is a pretty good safety, he will also burn you as a kick returner.
2010 Statistics: 72 tackles, one interception, seven pass deflections.
11. Dashon Goldson, San Francisco. Age: 26.
He's had his share of struggles over the years, but Goldson has been one of San Francisco's best players on defense.
2010 Statistics: 80 tackles, one interception, five pass deflections.
12. Bernard Pollard, Houston. Age: 26.
After being cut by Kansas City a couple years ago, Pollard found himself a home in Houston, becoming the teams hard-hitting safety they were looking for.
2010 Statistics: 111 tackles, four forced fumbles, five pass deflections.
13. Atari Bigby, Green Bay. Age: 29.
If it wasn't for his injuries, Bigby would be a lot higher on this list, but he struggles to stay healthy.
2010 Statistics: Six tackles.
14. Melvin Bullitt, Indianapolis. Age: 26.
Suffering a season-ending injury hurt his value, but Bullit has always been a favorite of mine, and has made a lot of impact stepping in for Bob Sanders when he was injured.
2010 Statistics: 13 tackles, one interception, one pass deflected.
15. George Wilson, Buffalo. Age: 30.
Stuck behind ballhawk Jarius Byrd, George Wilson would be smart to sign with another team, as he has shown potential to be a pretty good safety.
2010 Statistics: 35 tackles, two interceptions, four pass deflections.
