AFC South: Cecil Sapp
Our NFC West ace Mike Sando has been keeping track of free-agent movement by division and put together this excellent chart, which doesn't factor in any deals that may have been completed Friday morning.
The most significant names by team, with asterisks denoting players still believed to be of interest by their current clubs:
The Houston Texans' unrestricted free agents to be, in rough order of importance or rank:
Cornerback Dunta Robinson -- The defense was a lot better once he got back to form after rehabbing the bad leg injury and he's their best DB.
Free safety Eugene Wilson -- Was starting at the end and doing pretty well. A versatile piece with value.
Strong safety C.C. Brown -- Only played three games before season-ending injury. Good to have in the mix, but they need to upgrade his competition.
Strong safety Nick Ferguson -- Brought in to help with culture and was a good locker room guy.
Cornerback DeMarcus Faggins -- A sentimental favorite in the building as an original Texan, but he shouldn't rank higher than fourth corner.
Defensive tackle Jeff Zgonina -- He's 38 and just finished his 16th season. Probably time for the Texans to get younger in this spot. Could get a one-year deal.
Tight end Mark Bruener -- Made no contribution in his 14th season and is heading toward retirement.
Center Chris White -- Active as a sub about half the time in 2008.
Tackle Scott Jackson -- Missed his entire fourth season with a left foot injury.
Cornerback Jimmy Williams -- Missed entire season with a knee injury.
