Where NFL divisions rank in free agents
By Mike Sando
Expanding upon an earlier item, here's a look at NFL Players Association counts for potential 2011 unrestricted free agents by division.
The chart breaks down the numbers by accrued seasons entering 2010, as provided by the NFLPA. Most players listed earned an accrued season in 2010.
Players traditionally have needed four accrued seasons to qualify for unrestricted free agency. The looming expiration of the collective bargaining agreement upped those requirements last offseason.
Again, the chart reflects totals for accrued seasons entering 2010 regarding players whose contracts expire or can void this offseason.
