2012 NFL Free Agent Positions:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K/P | FA Grades | FA Mock

2012 Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2012.
Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Scott Wells, C, Packers. Age: 31.
    Signed with Rams

    Scott Wells is one of the top centers in the NFL. He excels in all areas, and is due for a big contract.

  2. Nick Hardwick, C, Chargers. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Chargers (3 years)

    Nick Hardwick is one of the top centers in football, but he told the media recently that he's going to consider retirement this offseason.

  3. Chris Myers, C/G, Texans. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Texans (4 years, $25 million)

    Chris Myers has been exceptional as Houston's center, but his value isn't really high as it should be because he doesn't fit with non-zone-blocking teams.

  4. Dan Koppen, C, Patriots. Age: 32.
    Re-signed with Patriots (2 years, $6 million)

    Dan Koppen performed very well in 2010, but missed most of 2011 with a fractured fibula. He turns 33 in September, which is the concern.

  5. Samson Satele, C, Raiders. Age: 27.
    Signed with Colts

    Samson Satele missed one game with a concussion last year, but otherwise had another solid season.

  6. Matt Birk, C, Ravens. Age: 36.
    Re-signed with Ravens (3 years)

    Matt Birk is still getting the job done, but he'll be 36 in July. His skills could quickly erode without warning.

  7. Jeff Saturday, C, Colts. Age: 37.
    Signed with Packers

    Jeff Saturday is coming off a great season, but the wheels could fall off at any moment because of his age. He'll be worth a 1-year deal though.

  8. Todd McClure, C, Falcons. Age: 35.
    Re-signed with Falcons (1 year)

    Todd McClure turns 35 in February, but he still gets the job done. His skills could erode without warning, however, which is why I'm listing him at just three stars.

  9. Will Montgomery, C/G, Redskins. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Redskins (4 years)

    Will Montgomery is a good fit in Mike Shanahan's scheme as a lineman who can play guard and center. He's worth more to the Redskins than most other teams, so he should re-sign with them.

  10. Casey Wiegmann, C, Chiefs. Age: 39.
    The Chiefs will welcomed back Casey Wiegmann if he still wants to play, but at 39, his performance could fall off at any point without warning.

  11. Jason Brown, C/G, Rams. Age: 29.
    Jason Brown was considered a top-tier free agent center in 2009 when he signed a 5-year, $37.5 million deal with the Rams. But like most players who go from a good team to an inferior organization solely for the money, Brown's performance really dropped off. He was benched last season. He's still young enough to turn his career around though, so he might be worth signing to an incentive-laden contract.

  12. Jeff Faine, C, Buccaneers. Age: 31.
    Jeff Faine has battled way too many injuries over the years. He managed to play in 15 contests last season, but he looked like a shell of his former self. Perhaps he can get healthy and rebound, but no one should hold their breath.

  13. Mike Pollak, C/G, Colts. Age: 27.
    Signed with Panthers

    Mike Pollak was in and out of the lineup in 2011 due to inconsistency, but he played well at times. He won't kill you if you have to start him at guard or center.

  14. Dan Connolly, C, Patriots. Age: 29. -- Re-signed with Patriots
  15. Scott Mruczkowski, C, Chargers. Age: 30.
  16. Jamaal Jackson, C, Eagles. Age: 32. -- Announced retirement
  17. Fernando Velasco (RFA), C/G, Titans. Age: 27.
  18. Andre Gurode, C, Ravens. Age: 33.
  19. Brett Romberg, C, Falcons. Age: 32.

He's been awful at G when he's played there. He's only consistent when blocking on stretch runs. He was beaten on all 5 blocked FG against the Redskins this year. He's barely a backup in the NFL.

Chris Myers should be the Skins top FA target this offseason.

If Houston has to re-sign Arian Foster and Mario Williams, will there be room to bring back Chris Myers? ...Remember when Andre Gurode was a pro-bowler? what happened there?... And why is there no comment section on the Fullbacks page? I wanna talk smack about Spencer Larsen (well I didn't until I saw there was no comment section)

Kirkpatrick signed with Colts. Don't get why the 2010 Rimington award winner and 2009 Rimington finalist went undrafted and only got 1 1/2 stars

I can't wait to visit

As for the Packers, they never sign free agents. They do things the right way, much like the Pats, Colts and Steelers.

Drafting a center/guard this year would be wise for the giants.

HUGE Chiefs fan up here! Willing to give left nut if they would make move for a center. In particular #3 Sendlein or #4 Cook. Weigman showed that our center spot needed some stability but at 38 we gotta look ahead. If the Chiefs signed one of these guys we could go to a right tackle, OLB in draft.

First comment... we're going to have comment boards like this all over the site soon. We're still working out the kinks, so this is not the finished product.
