I would go further than Walt did on our D-Line and give us one star. Benson Mayowa & Ryan Russell are our starting DEs for at least 4 games and they have 1 1/2 sacks between them & Irving who may have to rotate in. Gregory looks like he's possibly done for the year and Lawrence had issues at Boise so it's not like this is new territory for him even though this is his first suspension. We should've picked Ramsey and looked heavily at DL but we are going with Mayowa & Russell. Our pass rush will absolutely suck unless Russell shows big improvement and Mayowa becomes more than he has been so far.

2014 NFL Free Agent Tracker - Kickers:
Steven Hauschka, K, Seahawks. Age: 29. Re-signed with Seahawks (3 years, $9.15 million)
Steven Hauschka went 33-of-35 in 2013. He was just 4-of-10 from 50-plus prior to this past season, but he was a perfect 3-of-3 from that distance last year.
Phil Dawson, K, 49ers. Age: 39. Re-signed with 49ers (2 years)
Despite his age, Phil Dawson remains one of the league's top kickers. He went 32-of-36 in 2013, including 4-of-6 from 50-plus. Over the past three years, he's 18-of-21 from beyond that distance.
Rob Bironas, K, Titans. Age: 36.
Rob Bironas wasn't cut because of performance issues, given that he was 25-of-29 last year, including 2-of-3 from 50-plus. Tennessee axed him because of money (saves $3.125 million). Bironas is still a very good kicker, but his age is becoming an issue.
Nick Folk, K, Jets. Age: 29. Franchised by Jets
Nick Folk was perfect on field goals this past season until a fierce wind blew an attempt wide of the uprights in Week 11.
Adam Vinatieri, K, Colts. Age: 41. Re-signed with Colts (2 years)
The ageless Adam Vinatieri is still getting it done. He was 35-of-40 in 2013, including 4-of-6 from 50-plus.
Graham Gano, K, Panthers. Age: 27. Re-signed with Panthers (4 years, $12 million)
Graham Gano is coming off his best year. He finished 24-of-27, including a perfect 6-of-6 from 50-plus.
Josh Brown, K, Giants. Age: 35.
Josh Brown missed just two field goals in 2013, though he didn't attempt any tries from beyond 50.
Jay Feely, K, Cardinals. Age: 38. Re-signed with Cardinals
Jay Feely has been up and down his career. He went 30-of-36 this past season, including 3-of-5 from 50-plus, but he'll turn 38 in May.
Lawrence Tynes, K, Buccaneers. Age: 36.
Billy Cundiff, K, Browns. Age: 34. -- Re-signed with Browns (1 year)
