2010 Available NFL Free Agents: Defense

Here is a look at all of the league's defensive free agents for the 2010 off-season. Much of this information was found at WalterFootball.com, a great site when it comes to off-season stuff. 

Since this is still an area of need for the Saints, I think there is much to be discussed. Who will the Saints go after, if anyone, on this list? Who would you just love to see them try to sign?

I have decided to skip kickers and punters because I think it's safe to say - and I can't believe I am actually going to say this - that the Saints are finally set at those two positions.

Uncapped 2010 off-season disclaimer...

Throughout this series of posts, it's important to keep in mind the very real possibility that a new CBA will not be reached this off-season and that the 2010 season will uncapped. This means that any 4th or 5th year players, who would normally be unrestricted, instead become restricted. For our purposes here, we have assumed there will be no new CBA and are considering these players restricted. This is represented by an asterisk(*). In the unlikely event that a new CBA is reached before the 2010 season, these players would then be considered unrestricted.

Also keep in mind that because of the top eight provision, the Saints will not be allowed to sign any unrestricted free agents unless they let the equal value of unrestricted free agents go.
