2015 NFL Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2015.
Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Stefen Wisniewski, C, Raiders. Age: 26.
    Signed with Jaguars (1 year)

    Stefen Wisniewski has been a key cog in Oakland’s line front for four years now. One of the top, young centers in the NFL, he’ll be just 26 in March.

  2. Rodney Hudson, C, Chiefs. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Raiders (5 years, $44.5 million)

    Rodney Hudson was just above average in 2013, but he was coming off a leg injury. He had to fend off competition to become the starting center, but held the job. He took a big step in 2014, playing as one of the top centers in the NFL. Just 26 in July, Hudson should continue to improve.

  3. Chris Myers, C, Texans. Age: 33.
    Chris Myers had been with the Texans since 2008, but he was released because of salary reasons. Counting $8 million against the cap, Myers just had to be let go. He’ll turn 34 in September, but he still played very well last year, particularly in terms of run blocking. Myers is just an average pass protector, and he’ll regress soon, but he should be a viable starter over the next two seasons.

  4. Lyle Sendlein, C, Cardinals. Age: 31.
    Re-signed with Cardinals

    Lyle Sendlein was downright awful in 2014, but that could be attributed to a calf injury that he sustained in training camp and just wouldn’t go away. Sendlein had a decent 2013 season, and had played well before that. Some team could get a nice buy-low option at center.

  5. Nick Hardwick, C, Chargers. Age: 33.
    Announced retirement

    Nick Hardwick has been an excellent center for so many years, but he’s coming off a serious neck injury and turns 34 in September. He previously told the media that he was considering retirement, so this latest malady could convince him to hang up the cleats for good.

  6. Brian De La Puente, C/G, Bears. Age: 30.
    It was a mystery as to why the Saints let Brian De La Puente go last offseason. Capable of playing both center and guard, De La Puente sustained a season-ending ankle injury in November.

  7. Samson Satele, C, Dolphins. Age: 30.
    Samson Satele wasn’t a liability for the Dolphins last season. He’s a sub-par starting center, however, as he can get beaten in pass protection more than his quarterback would like. He’s a solid run-blocker though.

  8. Roberto Garza, C, Bears. Age: 36.
    Roberto Garza, who had suited up for Chicago since 2005, could still play. He wasn’t as effective as he once was, however, and at 36, he probably would’ve continued to regress.

  9. Joe Berger, C/G, Vikings. Age: 33.
    Re-signed with Vikings

    Joe Berger took over at right guard for the ineffective Vlad Ducasse this season and offered an upgrade in the running game. Berger can play center and guard, but he’ll be 33 in May.

  10. Dominic Raiola, C, Lions. Age: 36.
    Dominic Raiola is a dirty, old player who just had a terrible season. The only reason he’s even getting a write-up is being he was very good for a long time, including the 2013 campaign, when he was one of the top centers in the NFL.

  11. A.Q. Shipley (RFA), C, Colts. Age: 29. — Signed with Cardinals
  12. Will Montgomery, C, Broncos. Age: 32. — Signed with Bears
  13. Rich Ohrnberger, C/G, Chargers. Age: 29.
  14. J.D. Walton, C, Giants. Age: 28. — Signed with Dolphins
  15. Jonathan Goodwin, C, Saints. Age: 36.
  16. Scott Wells, C, Rams. Age: 34.
  17. Fernando Velasco, C/G, Panthers. Age: 30. — Signed with Titans
  18. Mike Pollak, C, Bengals. Age: 30.
  19. Lemuel Jeanpierre, C/G, Seahawks. Age: 28.
  20. Chris Spencer, C, Titans. Age: 33.
  21. Trevor Robinson (RFA), C, Chargers. Age: 25. — Re-signed with Chargers (2 years)
  22. Jacques McClendon, C, Jaguars. Age: 27. — Signed with Dolphins
  23. Tim Barnes (RFA), C, Rams. Age: 27.
  24. Dallas Reynolds (RFA), C, Giants. Age: 31. — Re-signed with Giants
  25. Christo Bilukidi (RFA), C, Ravens. Age: 25.
  26. Mark Asper, C, Dolphins. Age: 29.
