2014 NFL Free Agent Tracker: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2014.
Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Travelle Wharton, G, Panthers. Age: 33.
    Travelle Wharton was just a backup in the first month of the season, but he eventually took over the starting left guard position and was a monstrous blocker. He’ll be 33 right after the 2014 NFL Draft.

  2. Geoff Schwartz, G, Chiefs. Age: 28.
    Signed with Giants

    Geoff Schwartz started in the second half of the season and was pretty dominant. He appears to be over a hip injury that knocked him out for the entire 2011 season.

  3. Kevin Boothe, G, Giants. Age: 31.
    Signed with Raiders

    Kevin Boothe isn’t a spectacular starter, but he’s not bad either. His best attribute is his versatility; he can play all three positions in the interior.

  4. John Jerry, G, Dolphins. Age: 28.
    Signed with Giants

    John Jerry is not a good fit for Miami’s blocking scheme, so he should head elsewhere.

  5. Willie Colon, G, Jets. Age: 31.
    Re-signed with Jets (1 year, $2 million)

    Willie Colon did a good job as the Jets’ starting right guard this season, outside of his penalties. He pass protected very well. Unfortunately, he tore his biceps in the season finale.

  6. Carl Nicks, G, Buccaneers. Age: 29.
    Carl Nicks hasn’t been able to play much over the past few years because of injuries. His future is in doubt, but he has loads of talent, so perhaps he can revive his career if he can somehow get healthy.

  7. Brian Waters, G, Cowboys. Age: 37.
    Brian Waters is a good blocker and an even better leader in the locker room, but he’s 37 in February and happens to be coming off a season-ending triceps injury.

  8. Zane Beadles, G, Broncos. Age: 27.
    Signed with Jaguars (5 years, $30 million)

    Zane Beadles has played well in the past, but he struggled this previous season, especially in terms of pass protection.

  9. Davin Joseph, G, Buccaneers. Age: 30.
    Signed with Rams

    Davin Joseph used to be a talented guard, but a torn patellar tendon knocked him out for all of 2012 and caused him to struggle in 2013. He could bounce back, but he’ll turn 31 in November.

  10. Jon Asamoah, G, Chiefs. Age: 26.
    Signed with Falcons

    Jon Asamoah was benched in the second half of the season, but he had actually blocked rather well when he was in the lineup. His replacement, Geoff Schwartz, was just better.

  11. Harvey Dahl, G, Rams. Age: 33.
    Harvey Dahl played well as recently as 2012 – he even performed admirably at right tackle in some starts back in 2011 – but he missed nine games this past season with knee and ankle injuries. He’ll turn 33 in June, so his career is winding down.

  12. Uche Nwaneri, G, Jaguars. Age: 30.
    Signed with Cowboys

    It’s strange that the Jaguars released one of their few skilled linemen. Uche Nwaneri’s play has declined in recent seasons, but he’s still average in both pass protection and run blocking.

  13. Chad Rinehart, G, Chargers. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Chargers (2 years)

    Chad Rinehart is a decent guard. He might be ranked a little higher if he didn’t constantly endure foot problems.

  14. Daryn Colledge, G, Cardinals. Age: 32.
    Signed with Dolphins

    Daryn Colledge isn’t a bad lineman; he was simply released to free up $4.5 million in cap space. Colledge won’t kill any team as a starter, but his best role would be as a solid reserve.

  15. Shawn Lauvao, G, Browns. Age: 26. — Signed with Redskins (4 years, $17 million)
  16. Paul McQuistan, G, Seahawks. Age: 31. — Signed with Browns
  17. Richie Incognito, G, Dolphins. Age: 31.
  18. Chris Williams, G, Rams. Age: 29. — Signed with Bills (4 years, $13.5 million)
  19. Mike Pollak, G, Bengals. Age: 29. — Re-signed with Bengals
  20. Charlie Johnson, G, Vikings. Age: 30. — Re-signed with Vikings (2 years, $2.5 million)
  21. Leroy Harris, G, Lions. Age: 30.
  22. Vladimir Ducasse, G, Jets. Age: 26. — Signed with Vikings (1 year)
  23. Gabe Carimi, G, Buccaneers. Age: 26. — Signed with Falcons
  24. Mike McGlynn, G, Colts. Age: 29. — Signed with Redskins
  25. Lemuel Jeanpierre, G, Seahawks. Age: 27. — Re-signed with Seahawks (1 year)
  26. Chris Kuper, G, Broncos. Age: 31. — Announced retirement
  27. Chris Scott, G, Panthers. Age: 27.
  28. Rob Turner, G, Titans. Age: 30.
  29. Joe Reitz (RFA), G, Colts. Age: 29. — Tendered by Colts
  30. Jeff Byers (RFA), G, Panthers. Age: 28. — Announced retirement
  31. Shelley Smith (RFA), G, Rams. Age: 27. — Signed with Dolphins (2 years)
  32. Wade Smith, G, Texans. Age: 33.
  33. Garrett Reynolds, G, Falcons. Age: 27.
  34. Oniel Cousins, G, Browns. Age: 30. — Signed with Buccaneers (1 year)
  35. Mike Brisiel, G, Raiders. Age: 31.
  36. Geoff Hangartner, G, Panthers. Age: 32.
  37. Seth Olsen (RFA), G, Vikings. Age: 28.
  38. Danny Watkins (RFA), G, Dolphins. Age: 29.
  39. Mike Gibson, G, Cardinals. Age: 28.
