2009 Free Agents: Defensive Ends




2009 NFL Free Agent Positions:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K/P



2009 Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2009.

  1. Julius Peppers, Panthers. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Panthers (1 year, $16.683 million)

    Julius Peppers probably won't be back with the Panthers next year; Carolina will likely franchise and trade him. Peppers, who had 15 sacks in 2008, said that he would prefer to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense.

  2. Chris Canty, Cowboys. Age: 26.
    Signed with Giants (6 years, $42 million; $17.25 million guaranteed)

    Though he had somewhat of a down year in 2008, Chris Canty is still a decent defensive end in the 3-4.



  3. Igor Olshansky, Chargers. Age: 27.
    Signed with Cowboys (4 years, $18 million)

    Igor Olshansky was an effective end in the 3-4 until this season. He performed poorly in 2008 and will need to reestablish himself next year.

  4. Demetric Evans, Redskins. Age: 29.
    Signed with 49ers (2 years, $3.8 million)

    Demetric Evans is great against the run and can occasionally get to the quarterback (four sacks).

  5. Antonio Smith, Cardinals. Age: 27.
    Signed with Texans (5 years, $35 million; $12.5 million guaranteed)

    After looking pretty average at the beginning of the year, Antonio Smith has been lights out in the postseason. He's made himself a good amount of money during Arizona's improbable run.

  6. Greg Ellis, Cowboys. Age: 34.
    Signed with Raiders (3 years)

    Greg Ellis has recorded 21 sacks in the past two seasons, including eight in 2008. He's 34, but he's fully capable of playing in both the 4-3 and 3-4. The Patriots should be really interested.



  7. Vonnie Holliday, Dolphins. Age: 33.
    Vonnie Holliday played well in 2008. Age is starting to catch up to him, but he should be a nice complementary player in the 3-4 for two seasons or so.

  8. Chauncey Davis, Falcons. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Falcons (4 years, $14 million)

    Chauncey Davis had four sacks in 2008. He's a solid reserve in the 4-3.

  9. Kalimba Edwards, Raiders. Age: 29.
    A situational pass-rusher, Kalimba Edwards should be good for 4-6 sacks in 2009.

  10. Travis LaBoy, Cardinals. Age: 28.
    Travis LaBoy played in 13 games last year and failed to register a sack in 11 of them. He's always banged up.

  11. Ebenezer Ekuban, Broncos. Age: 33.
    Despite coming off a torn Achillies, Ebenezer Ekuban managed five sacks in 2008. He had seven sacks in 2006, but missed all of 2007.

  12. Bert Berry, Cardinals. Age: 34.
    Re-signed with Cardinals

    Bert Berry, who had five sacks in the regular season, managed two sacks in the first two playoff games. But at 34, his best days are behind him.

  13. C.J. Mosley, Jets. Age: 26.
    Signed with Browns (2 years, $5 million)

    A very solid depth player on the 3-4.

  14. Mike Wright, Patriots. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Patriots (4 years, $7.5 million)

    Another young, reliable depth player in the 3-4. Mike Wright is versatile to play end and nose tackle.





  15. Josh Thomas, Colts. Age: 28.
    A 4-3 left end who plays well against the run.

  16. Jason Babin, Chiefs. Age: 29.
    Signed with Eagles

    Believe it or not, Jason Babin had 20 percent of Kansas City's sack total in 2008. Babin had a whopping two sacks in the final three games of the year.

  17. Tim Crowder, Broncos. Age: 24.
    Signed with Buccaneers

    It figures that Josh Mishandles would put a bunch of his players into the wrong system for them. Tim Crowder could work in a 4-3.

  18. Jason Taylor, Redskins. Age: 35.
    Signed with Dolphins (1 year, $1.1 million)

    Jason Taylor had two sacks against the Eagles in a Week 16 battle, which is a good sign. Still, he's way too old to be anything other than a rotational guy.

  19. Kevin Carter, Buccaneers. Age: 35.
    Kevin Carter can still be an OK rotational guy, but I'm not sure how effective he'll be. He turns 36 in September.

  20. Michael Montgomery, Packers. Age: 26. - Re-signed with Packers (2 years)
  21. Corey Smith, Lions. Age: 29.
  22. Earl Cochran, Texans. Age: 28.
  23. Stephen Bowen (RFA), Cowboys. Age: 25. - Re-signed with Cowboys (1 year, $1.545 million)
  24. Jason Hunter, Packers. Age: 26. - Signed with Lions
  25. Jayme Mitchell (RFA), Vikings. Age: 25. - Re-signed with Vikings (2 years)
  26. Victor Adeyanju (RFA), Rams. Age: 26. - Re-signed with Rams (1 year, $1.01 million)
  27. Kenny "The Jet" Smith, Chiefs. Age: 31.
  28. Turk McBride, Chiefs. Age: 24. - Signed with Lions
  29. Anthony Weaver, Texans. Age: 29.
  30. Paul Spicer, Saints. Age: 34. - Re-signed with Saints
  31. Marcus Howard, Colts. Age: 23.
  32. Brian Johnston, Lions. Age: 23. - Signed with Dolphins
  33. Patrick Chukwurah, Buccaneers. Age: 30.
  34. John Engelberger, Broncos. Age: 32.
  35. Marques Douglas, Ravens. Age: 32. - Signed with Jets
  36. Alfonso Boone, Chiefs. Age: 33. - Signed with Chargers
  37. Greg Peterson, Buccaneers. Age: 25.
  38. Jeremy Mincey, Jaguars. Age: 25.
  39. Jerome McDougle, Giants. Age: 30.
  40. Orpheus Roye, Steelers. Age: 36.
