2013 NFL Free Agents: Defensive Ends

2013 NFL Free Agent Positions:
QB | RB | FB | WR | TE | OT | G | C | DE | DT | OLB | ILB | CB | S | K/P | FA Grades | Winners/Losers

2013 NFL Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2013.
Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Elvis Dumervil, DE, Broncos. Age: 29.
    Signed with Ravens

    Elvis Dumervil has 63.5 sacks in six NFL seasons (he missed all of 2010 with an injury). This includes 11 sacks in 2012. He can be a liability in run support, but his tremendous ability to get to the quarterback makes up for that.

  2. Anthony Spencer, DE/OLB, Cowboys. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Cowboys (1 year, $10.6 million)

    Anthony Spencer dealt with consistency issues early in his career, but he was amazing for the Cowboys this past season, both in terms of stopping the run and getting to the quarterback.

  3. Michael Johnson, DE, Bengals. Age: 26.
    Franchised by Bengals

    The sky's the limit for Michael Johnson, who turns 26 in February. He recorded 11.5 sacks in 2012 while playing the run very well. He's expected to be franchised.

  4. Michael Bennett, DE, Buccaneers. Age: 27.
    Signed with Seahawks (1 year, $5 million)

    One of the more underrated players in the NFL, Michael Bennett is a solid pass-rusher and a premier run-defender. He plays all three downs and deserves a big contract.

  5. Cliff Avril, DE, Lions. Age: 27.
    Signed with Seahawks

    Cliff Avril is a relatively young, dynamic pass-rusher, but he tends to struggle in run support. He rejected a 3-year, $30 million deal last offseason.

  6. Dwight Freeney, DE, Colts. Age: 33.
    Signed with Chargers

    Dwight Freeney didn't have a good 2012 campaign because he was bothered by an ankle injury and had to transition into a 3-4 for the first time in his career. He should be better on a team with a 4-3 defense next year.

  7. William Hayes, DE, Rams. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Rams

    William Hayes could start for some teams, but he can't crack the lineup in St. Louis because of Chris Long and Robert Quinn. He's terrific against the run and can get to the quarterback on occasion.

  8. Osi Umenyiora, DE, Giants. Age: 31.
    Signed with Falcons

    Osi Umenyiora had some decent games this past season, but was mostly invisible. It's fair to wonder if Umenyiora's talents have eroded. He'll be 32 in November.

  9. John Abraham, DE, Falcons. Age: 35.
    John Abraham still got the job done as a 34-year-old last season, registering a team-high 10 sacks. He was cut because of his $7.25 million cap number. He can still start, but it's fair to wonder how much he has left in the tank, given that he'll be 35 in May.

  10. Israel Idonije, DE, Bears. Age: 32.
    Signed with Lions (1 year)

    Israel Idonije is coming off a fantastic season in terms of getting to the quarterback (7.5 sacks) and stopping the run. He'll be 33 in November, however.

  11. Junior Galette (RFA), DE, Saints. Age: 25.
    Re-signed with Saints (3 years)

    Junior Galette is a solid situational pass-rusher who should have seen more action last year.

  12. Robert Geathers, DE, Bengals. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Bengals

    Robert Geathers did not play well this past season because of a lingering knee injury. He was still decent as a run-stopper.

  13. Wallace Gilberry, DE, Bengals. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Bengals (3 years, $6.75 million)

    Wallace Gilberry is a quality nickel pass-rusher. He recorded 6.5 sacks despite not playing very many snaps.

  14. Juqua Parker-Thomas, DE, Browns. Age: 35.
    Juqua Parker-Thomas served as a decent situational pass-rusher for the Browns, registering six sacks. He'll be 35 in May, however.

  15. Kyle Moore, DE, Bills. Age: 26. -- Signed with Bears
  16. Lawrence Jackson, DE, Lions. Age: 28.
  17. Frostee Rucker, DE, Browns. Age: 29. -- Signed with Cardinals
  18. Kyle Vanden Bosch, DE, Lions. Age: 34.
  19. Matt Shaughnessy, DE, Raiders. Age: 26. -- Signed with Cardinals (1 year)
  20. Trevor Scott, DE, Patriots. Age: 29.
  21. Shawne Merriman, DE, Bills. Age: 29. -- Announced retirement
  22. Andre Carter, DE, Raiders. Age: 34. -- Re-signed with Raiders (1 year)
  23. Antwan Applewhite, DE/OLB, Panthers. Age: 27.
  24. George Selvie, DE, Jaguars. Age: 26. -- Signed with Buccaneers
  25. Willie Young (RFA), DE, Lions. Age: 27. -- Tendered by Lions (2nd round)
  26. Darryl Tapp, DE, Eagles. Age: 28. -- Signed with Redskins
  27. Jason Hunter, DE, Broncos. Age: 30. -- Signed with Raiders

  28. Lawrence Sidbury, DE, Falcons. Age: 27. -- Signed with Colts
  29. Jarvis Moss, DE, Raiders. Age: 29.
  30. Jarius Wynn, DE, Titans. Age: 27. -- Signed with Chargers
  31. Keyunta Dawson, DE, Titans. Age: 27.
  32. Turk McBride, DE, Saints. Age: 28. -- Signed with Bears
  33. Edgar Jones, DE/OLB, Chiefs. Age: 28. -- Re-signed with Chiefs
  34. Dave Tollefson, DE, Raiders. Age: 31.
  35. Dave Ball, DE, Titans. Age: 33.

Brian Orakpu #2? No way. He is a great athlete but he is always injured and his production doesn't match his skill set. Decent guy as your 2nd best pass rusher but he is not that elite edge pass rusher.

Jared Allen and Lamar Houston are better bets. You can't single those guys

I'd go
Hardy #1
Houston #2
Allen #3 due to age

I think part of Bennett is the team around him.

With that said some team desperate for a pass rusher, maybe a team like Atlanta would over pay for your Orakpu or Justin Tuck.

Isreal idonije could come in for 1 year as a packer and make a difference. He still has enough in the tank.

there are good looking names on this list. Older guys that can still come in for a year or two and make a difference.

I say we let Avril walk and use that money to bring Micheal Johnson in and release KVB and draft Mingo in the draft or Montgomery and pair those two together

Anthony Spencer over Michael Johnson as a DE? Really... huh. I can definitely see your point if you're ranking 3-4 OLB (even then... maybe not), but as a DE? O----kay Walt?...

You did about as good as I did, and I was able to update mine the day berofe. You offered a lot of insite that helped me get a few of those picks right. Also, if it weren't for you, I would have not welcomed the drafting of Andre Smith. Speaking of Andre Smith, I think it's important that the Bengals and Smith's agent work hard to get a contract done early. That would go a long way toward proving that Smith was not a gamble.

Kamerion Wimbley would look great in the Bears DE rotation! I hope the Bears are make a serious run at him. Anyone heard anything regarding this as apossibility?

Personally, I am proud of the Cowboys for stepping up to the Free Agent plate and signing the players they have, I think the only " bonehead " moves they have made is Franchising Anthony Spencer to a 1 year $8.8 mil deal, and resigning Kevin Ogletree, I think the Cowboys should have looked at a #3 WR that could start if/when Dez or Miles gets injured, Some critics think the Cowboys made a mistake by signing Guards Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau, But Livings will be a huge upgrade over Montrae Holland, Derrick Dockery, and Bill Nagy at LG, And Bernadeau is the 2012 version of Kyle Kosier that will be given every opportunity to start at RG, Orton is 29, and a good backup QB, Carr will be an upgrade over Newman, Pool will be an upgrade over Elam, and I think Dan Connor may take Bruce Carter's spot at ILB, The Cowboys should tear up that franchise tag for Spencer, and try to sign Kamerion Wimbley, and then let Spencer walk.
