With the NFL lockout continuing to slowly break us down (emotionally and, um, physically), and the draft over and done with, free agency is now front-and-center for speculation in the NFL world. 

This year's free agency class isn't amazing.

With every team more-or-less understanding what holes free agency could fill, some of last year's backup players — whether they're quarterbacks, running backs or defensive linemen — could fill those holes, and start immediately.
