2011 NFL Free Agents: Offensive Tackles

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. Doug Free, OT, Cowboys. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Cowboys (4 years, $32 million; $17 million guaranteed)

    Doug Free played exceptionally well in his first year as Dallas' left tackle. He'll command a huge contract this offseason.

  2. Willie Colon, OT, Steelers. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Steelers (5 years, $29 million)

    Willie Colon missed the entire 2010 season with a torn Achilles, but his recovery apparently has gone pretty well. Colon is an outstanding, Pro Bowl-caliber right tackle, so Ben Roethlisberger would love to have him back.

  3. Marshal Yanda, OT/G, Ravens. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Ravens (5 years, $32 million)

    Marshal Yanda had a very good season, surrendering only four sacks. He's capable of playing both right tackle and guard effectively, so that versatility should help him this offseason.

  4. Tyson Clabo, OT, Falcons. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Falcons (5 years)

    Tyson Clabo is a pretty decent right tackle, but a Pro Bowl appearance may inflate his market value.

  5. Jammal Brown, OT, Redskins. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Redskins (5 years)

    After a very sluggish start, Jammal Brown played well down the stretch once he got over his hip surgery.

  6. Matt Light, OT, Patriots. Age: 33.
    Re-signed with Patriots (2 years)

    Matt Light can still be a dependable left tackle, but he's past his prime. He struggled on a few occasions this season, surrendering seven sacks.

  7. Sean Locklear, OT, Seahawks. Age: 30.
    Signed with Redskins

    Sean Locklear is pretty abysmal when it comes to opening up lanes for running backs, but he does a really good job in pass protection. He surrendered only five sacks in 2010 (including the playoffs).

  8. Ryan Harris, OT, Broncos. Age: 26.
    Signed with Eagles (1 year)

    A young, decent, zone-blocking right tackle, Ryan Harris struggled in Josh McDaniels' new offense. Harris will probably be heavily pursued this spring, though he's been injured a lot in the past two years.

  9. Jared Gaither, OT, Ravens. Age: 25.
    Signed with Chiefs

    Jared Gaither is a very talented offensive tackle, but he missed all 2010 with a serious back injury. Back problems don't go away very easily, so it's possible that Gaither may never be 100 percent again.

  10. Max Starks, OT, Steelers. Age: 29.
    Max Starks is a starting-quality left tackle. Well, he was before he ballooned up to 400 pounds. Starks lost his job because he wasn't able to work out after suffering a neck injury.

  11. Barry Richardson, OT, Chiefs. Age: 25.
    Tendered by Chiefs

    Barry Richardson is a forceful run-blocker, but an absolute sieve in pass protection.

  12. Langston Walker, OT, Raiders. Age: 31.
    Langston Walker tends to struggle in pass protection, but he's a very forceful run-blocker on the right side.

  13. Nick Kaczur, OT, Patriots. Age: 32.
    Nick Kaczur played well at right tackle for New England in 2009, but missed all of 2010 with a back injury. It's unclear if he can still be a starter in this league.

  14. Damien Woody, OT, Jets. Age: 33.
    Announced retirement

    Damien Woody's age (34 in November) and injury (torn Achilles) are the reasons why he's only rated two stars. Woody is a tremendous run-blocker and is adequate in pass protection, but his health is an issue.

  15. Ryan O'Callaghan, OT, Chiefs. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Chiefs

    Ryan O'Callaghan played well in 2009, but barely saw the field this past season because of various injuries.

  16. James Lee (ERFA), OT, Buccaneers. Age: 26.
    James Lee supplanted Jeremy Trueblood at right tackle in the middle of the year and did an OK job. He can be upgraded though.

  17. Bryant McKinnie, OT, Vikings. Age: 31.
    Bryant McKinnie has immense talent, but he's also a fat, lazy slob. The Vikings cut the soon-to-be 32-year-old McKinnie because he weighed in close to 400 pounds at training camp. He'd be a good addition to a team if he somehow gets his act together, but that's probably not going to happen.

  18. Mark Tauscher, OT, Packers. Age: 34.

Following up on your points about Clady, Pro Football Focus gave him a +26.9 rating last season which was the best among FA OT. Or, as we already knew, when you compare what Walt says to real insight by professional, you realize that Walt is a freaking moron concerning football.

I wrote this earlier but it must have been deleted? Jermon Bushrod cannot pass block, yet he was an all pro in 2011? I would be happey if the Eagles could add him to their roster. Then they could play him at RT and move Herremans back to Guard,where he belongs....

Skins fans need to turn off their inner Vinny Cerrato when it comes to Eric Winston. Let somebody else give a guy turning 30 who has been released twice in a year another big contract.

I think the fact the Chiefs released Winston proves that they are going to draft Joeckel and either start him or Branden Albert at RT next year.

With all due respect, it's stuff like this that makes you think there truly is an anti Chiefs bias on this site for some reason, in spite of Walts class with Tamba Hali in college.

This is the first season that Branden Albert has ever dealt with back issues, and while you write that he cannot be counted on to play 16 games, he's missed a grand total of 4 games over his first 4 seasons in the league.

I don't expect people who have to give equal coverage to all teams to know certain things about every single team that the fans might (i.e. breaking down Alex Smiths terrible 3rd down passing and intermediate throws to validate what a bad trade it was), but it just takes a little googling to see how many games Albert played.

I find it funny you call Andre Smith a premier tackle when on TNF Brandon Graham absolutely destroyed him

Bell rates better than Dunlap who ably replaced him in the line-up at LT. That doesn't meet the eyeball test. Bell was horribly bad. Dunlap was at least almost servicable.

I have another un-GM Ted Thompson move to consider for the Green Bay Packers. We desperatly need an upgrade at LT - the Packers are drafting way too low to select an impact LT.

(Note: IMO, the focus in round one should be on Alabama C / G Barrett Jones. An upgrade focusing on the long term is need at that position as well.)

Okay, so here is my suggestion. If it makes financial sense, why not take a long look at LT Jake Long? He might cost some money but we need to keep QB Aaron Rodgers upright. The Packers OL allowed something like 55 sacks in 2012-2013 - that is unacceptable.

Ryan Clady.... All Pro & Pro Bowler, Ryan Clady, is just a 3 and 1/2 star Left Tackle? Da ganja be strong in Walter Land.

Ryan Clady is a 4 1/2 star to 5 star LT (one of the best in football), he's a good run blocker and an exceptional pass blocker, and we're going to pay the man some PAYPAH! Bank!

He hasn't "regressed just a bit" at this point, he's turned into a negative player. Pro Football Focus gave him a -0.3 rating this season.

Come on Walt, leave the analysis to places like PFF and Football Outsiders that actually know what they're talking about.

The Chargers need an OT via FA and draft an OT, but there cap is about 8.5 mil so its probably going to another season of Clary playing RT.

The raiders need a major upgrade a RT because khalif barnes sucks(our RT bergstorm will play LG) they should have kept stephon heyer not only can he block he can catch(if you remembered in the preseason against the saints he caught a pass for a 1st down)

Jets should sign Marcus McNeail to a short 2 year prove you still have something left contract and play him on the right side
