It seems as though every year at this time the Bleacher Report transforms into a virtual free agent wishlist for NFL fans.
We spend countless hours analyzing and projecting players’ interest in our teams in an almost prophetic manner.
It never fails.
I myself have fallen subject to this very aura.
On June 23, 2011 I wrote an article titled “NFL Trade Rumors: Nnamdi Asomugha to Detroit Could Legitimately Happen.”
And like a used car salesman, I worked diligently in trying to make the Detroit Lions look like an “ideal” situation for Asomugha.
But let’s be honest, It probably wont happen.
It looks as if a new collective bargaining agreement is on the horizon, effectively bringing the NFL lockout to an end.
Free agency will then kickoff, and great players will come and go.
It was fun while it lasted right?
At least we had the opportunity to envision Nnamdi in Honolulu blue and silver.
Here are five players that WILL NOT be in a Detroit Lions uniform in 2011.
