7 Free Agents Who Will Become Pro-Bowlers for Their New Teams

1 of 8

    This was a tough task to take on, I'll admit it. 

    Because of the flurry of moves in the last several days, I had to go back and make sure I remembered everybody that switched teams. 

    And then I had to actually figure out if they had a legitimate shot at making the Pro Bowl. 

    Let's face it...there were a few "huge" moves, but nothing of Pro Bowl value right?

    Well...

Chad Ochocinco

2 of 8

    Patriots fans are thanking me. 

    Everyone else is calling me crazy (or worse) right about now. 

    Listen, here's the thing. As hard as I am on Tom Brady, he's an elite quarterback. 

    And what he did with Randy Moss was no accident. Just ask the Vikings or Titans last season. 

    So adding a guy like Ochocinco who has a lot of talent? No problem. 

    I'm not sure if he'll be a Pro Bowler, but I do predict this:

    He's going to surprise some people. 

Daryn Colledge

3 of 8

    Haven't heard of him?

    He's a very good left guard that just left the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers to go to Arizona. 

    And he's already the best talent on the line. 

    If Arizona gets back to the playoffs, Colledge could gain some attention finally. 

Zach Miller

4 of 8

    This was an easy pick, although I don't think he'll do as well in Seattle. 

    Don't get me wrong—I think he's talented. 

    But when you're the best target in a run-first offense featuring Jason Campbell, who has no arm, then yeah, you're going to get some catches. 

    But in an offense with another good tight end, let alone a couple of big wideouts?

    And let's not forget who's throwing him the ball. 

    But still, he made the Pro Bowl last year, and could sneak behind in if something happens to Jermichael Finley or Vernon Davis. 

Vonta Leach

5 of 8

    The bruising fullback was a Pro Bowler last year, leading the way for Arian Foster's breakout season. 

    This year?

    He gets to lead the way for Ray Rice.

    I see a similar ending to this story... 

Jason Babin

6 of 8

    Dude had 12-and-a-half sacks last year, as you well know. 

    Now, he's going to be on a better team. With a better secondary. 

    Uh-oh...

Paul Posluszny

7 of 8

    Dude is a tackle machine. 

    And his talents may have been wasted up in the frozen tundra known as Buffalo. 

    Now that he's gone from the Ralph (as I hear fans call the stadium up there), he should do better, and maybe will get to the Pro Bowl finally. 

Nnamdi Asomugha

8 of 8

    Do I really need to explain this obvious choice?

    Philadelphia certainly knew what they were doing this offseason...

Where can I comment?
