2011 Unrestricted Free Agent List (2010 CBA rules, 6 years)

Since there is a lot of free agent talk going around now, and soon to be in the future, I am compiling a list of the guys that will fall under the 2010 unrestricted rules. This means 6 years or more of service in the NFL. It also means if the league reverts to old rules that there will be no salary cap this year.

Some of my sources are no doubt out of date, as I have removed a few names from lists, such as Nathan Vasher and Champ Bailey who have both signed deals, and Peyton Manning who is never going to be a free agent. If you guys see someone in this list that has signed a contract, or been franchise tagged, let me know and I will update it. Please provide me with a trustworthy source link to verify the signing as well.

I think when you guys look through this list you will realize that the pickings are slim and there will be heavy competition for any decent players. No matter who is signed by whom we can rest assured that they are very likely to be overpaid. Anyone not on this list is either under contract, or falls into the 3 or 5 year category of free agency, which is restricted and most likely those players, if decent, will be tendered.

I intend this to be more of a resource tool than any actual opinion in the original post. Therefore I will reserve any opinions on the above players, and if I feel they would be a good fit here in Detroit for the comments section.
