2011 NFL Free Agents: Guards

2011 NFL Free Agent Positions:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K/P | Recap

2011 Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2011.

  1. Logan Mankins, G, Patriots. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Patriots (6 years)

    One of the top guards in the NFL, Logan Mankins specializes in run-blocking, but also does a great job in pass protection. The Patriots cannot allow him to get away.

  2. Carl Nicks (RFA), G, Saints. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Saints (1 year, $2.61 million)

    One of the NFL's elite guards, Carl Nicks is a year away from landing a massive contract. He'll be tendered at the highest possible level this offseason.

  3. Harvey Dahl, G, Falcons. Age: 30.
    Signed with Rams

    Arguably Atlanta's top offensive lineman, Harvey Dahl bounced back from an ankle injury that sidelined him for half the 2009 season. He's due for a big payday.

  4. Justin Blalock, G, Falcons. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Falcons (6 years)

    An unspectacular, but solid starting left guard, Justin Blalock doesn't have any weaknesses in his game.

  5. Brian Waters, G, Chiefs. Age: 34.
    And so ends the Brian Waters era in Kansas City. Waters has been with the Chiefs since 2000, and at 34 years old, he can still play very well. I'm pretty shocked the Chiefs let him go.

  6. Richie Incognito, G, Dolphins. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Dolphins (3 years)

    Richie Incognito was Miami's best interior lineman this year. He has definitely turned his career around; he was once criticized for sitting out a 2008 game for a fake illness. Jim Haslett was so frustrated that he actually slapped a candy bar out of Incognito's hands on the sideline.

  7. Jacob Bell, G, Rams. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Rams

    Jacob Bell never lived up to his $36 million contract, but he's still a solid starting guard who is a pretty good pass protector.

  8. Leonard Davis, G, Cowboys. Age: 32.
    Leonard Davis played well last year, but he was due $6 million and thus became a fiscal casualty for the cap-strapped Cowboys. He turns 33 in early September, but could be a solid starter for a couple more seasons.

  9. Kyle Kosier, G, Cowboys. Age: 32.
    Re-signed with Cowboys (3 years, $9 million)

    Kyle Kosier will turn 33 in November, but he did a very good job at left guard for the Cowboys this season after coming back from an early-season Achilles injury.

  10. Chris Chester, G, Ravens. Age: 28.
    Signed with Redskins (5 years, $20 million)

    Chris Chester didn't enjoy a good postseason, but otherwise had a pretty decent 2010 campaign.

  11. Davin Joseph, G, Buccaneers. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Buccaneers (7 years, $53 million)

    A quality run-blocking guard, Davin Joseph had his season cut short because of a fractured foot.

  12. Kyle DeVan (ERFA), G, Colts. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Colts

    Kyle DeVan did a very good job in pass protection down the stretch, surrendering only one sack all year. However, he was heavily penalized.

  13. Derrick Dockery, G, Redskins. Age: 30.
    Derrick Dockery had a very solid 2009 campaign, but barely played last year because he didn't fit Mike Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme.

  14. Robert Gallery, G, Raiders. Age: 31.
    Signed with Seahawks (3 years)

    Robert Gallery is a talented guard, but can't stay healthy. He has missed 14 games in the past two seasons.

  15. Mike Brisiel, G, Texans. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Texans

    Mike Brisiel played pretty well for the Texans at right guard in 2010. The problem is that he has always been injury-prone throughout his career.

  16. David Baas, G/C, 49ers. Age: 29.
    Signed with Giants

    David Baas should have been the team's left guard this year. However, he was forced into playing center in the wake of Eric Heitmann's season-long injury. This versatility can only help him in the open market.

  17. Evan Mathis, G, Bengals. Age: 29.
    Signed with Eagles

    Evan Mathis is a talented guard, but can't stay healthy. Cedric Benson really missed him this season.

  18. Rich Seubert, G/C, Giants. Age: 32.
    Rich Seubert is a skilled, versatile interior offensive lineman. The problem is that he's a 32-year-old coming off major knee surgery and may not be ready until the middle of the 2011 season.

  19. Mike Pollak, G, Colts. Age: 26.
    A marginal guard who struggles in the run-blocking department.

  20. Daryn Colledge, G, Packers. Age: 29.
    Signed with Cardinals

    Daryn Colledge can be upgraded, but the Packers could do worse at left guard.

  21. Pork Chop Womack, G, Browns. Age: 32.
    Signed with Cardinals

    Pork Chop Womack has done an OK job at right guard for the Browns the past couple of years, but he can be upgraded.

  22. Deuce Lutui, G, Cardinals. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Cardinals

    Derek Anderson's laughing partner, Deuce Lutui and his drunken quarterback were probably making fun of their own ineptness this year. Lutui was much better in 2009, but it looks like he's going to suck again. He signed with the Bengals, but failed his physical.

  23. Max Jean-Gilles, G, Eagles. Age: 27. -- Signed with Bengals (1 year, $1.15 million)
  24. Nate Livings (RFA), G, Bengals. Age: 29.
  25. Leroy Harris, G, Titans. Age: 27. -- Re-signed with Titans (2 years)
  26. Justin Smiley, G, Raiders. Age: 29. -- Announced retirement
  27. Trai Essex, G, Steelers. Age: 28.
  28. Doug Legursky, G, Steelers. Age: 25.
  29. Will Montgomery, G, Redskins. Age: 28.
  30. Zach Hurd, G, Connecticut. Age: 22.
  31. Chester Pitts, G, Seahawks. Age: 32.
  32. Pat McQuistan, G, Dolphins. Age: 28. -- Signed with Titans
  33. Vince Manuwai, G, Jaguars. Age: 31.
  34. Alan Faneca, G, Cardinals. Age: 34. -- Announced retirement
  35. Nate Garner (RFA), G, Dolphins. Age: 26. -- Tendered by Dolphins
  36. Nick Cole, G/C, Eagles. Age: 27.
  37. John Greco, G, Rams. Age: 26. -- Re-signed with Rams
  38. Stacy Andrews, G, Seahawks. Age: 30. -- Signed with Giants
  39. Adam Goldberg, G, Rams. Age: 31. -- Re-signed with Rams
  40. Tony Wragge, G, 49ers. Age: 32. -- Re-signed with 49ers (1 year)
  41. Kevin Boothe, G, Giants. Age: 28. -- Re-signed with Giants (2 years)
  42. Reggie Wells, G, Eagles. Age: 30.
  43. Daniel Loper, G, Raiders. Age: 29. -- Re-signed with Raiders (2 years, $4.2 million)
  44. Steve Vallos, G, Browns. Age: 27.
  45. Kasey Studdard, G, Texans. Age: 27. -- Re-signed with Texans
  46. Herman Johnson, G, Giants. Age: 26.
  47. Mike Williams, G, Redskins. Age: 31.
  48. Bryan Mattison, G, Ravens. Age: 27.

Brokers usually come in two varieties: the unique broker along with the impartial broker. An unbiased broker is an enterpriser who signifies many distinct insurance QuotesChimp at once. They're compensated through profits predicated on a percent of the cost which you spend in rates. Solely the unique broker, however, offers policy contract for just one firm. Unique brokers additionally work with percentage.

Richie incognito should make a roster no poblem. because of the acusaions he wont be epensive to sign and can contribute to any team, he's not a bully just a tough player every other lineman on the dolphins backed up Richie. rtin won't be on any team cause no one wants a baby on their team, incognito can get the job done idealy where a team is looking for a good pass protector such as the Patriots, Niners, or Packers.

Vasquez could have and should have been extended by the Chargers last year, but as usual AJ low-balled him and now he's going to cost an arm and a leg to sign. Is there any wonder this team has been going in the wrong direction for the past three years?

So, the Charger's tackles suck but are signed and their guards are OK but unsigned. Sounds about right.

The raiders should have Carl Nicks and if the really signed Mike Breisel to a 5 year 20 million dollar deal then they screwed themselves they should have gave Carl Nicks that deal,Mike should have got at least a 2 year 5 million dollar year

I love all the SOIAF references on this site. Favorite series of books, thanks for feeding both of my greatest interests in football and fantasy literature.

Adam Snyder may not be one of the top G's on the market but he deserves at least two stars just based on his ability to play just about any of the 5 positions on the OLine.
He was an improvement over Chili Rachal and I hope the 49ers bring Snyder back.

It is hard to imagine the Saints investing so much money to the interior of its offensive line, but much of the success of this franchise in recent years has been due to the "threat of the run", which allows Drew Brees to have openings in the secondary to pick apart. Without this component Brees would not be breaking records. I'm sure if you were able to ask him he would tell you the same.

uk saint

you're dreaming if you think the saints will franchise nicks. no team can afford to give that much money to it's pair of guards. you might be able to re sign brees, porter and colston, but forget about nicks and meachem
