Here are the top 100 NFL free agents as rated by Jason Cole and Charles Robinson. Included are players who were cut or whose contracts have expired since the end of last season. Not included on the list are CB Adam "Pacman" Jones, WR Jerry Porter and TE Jerramy Stevens …
* – denotes player who is recovering from significant injury or surgery.
8. Bryant McFadden, CB: SIGNED Best cornerback among a lot of mediocre ones lands in Arizona after picking up a Super Bowl ring last season with Pittsburgh. McFadden signed a two-year $10 million deal, getting $5 million guaranteed. Story
10. Phillip Buchanon, CB: SIGNED Contrary to earlier belief, the Florida native chose not to stay close to home, inking a two-year deal with the Lions. Story
11. Derrick Ward, RB: SIGNED Former seventh-round pick hit the big time in a shallow group of RBs, getting a four-year, $17 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Story
*22. Mark Tauscher, OT: He's old, but the Packers need to have their right tackle back.
30. Nate Washington, WR: SIGNED The 26-year-old signed with the Tennessee Titans for an undisclosed contract. His speed and big-play ability will suit the arm of Kerry Collins perfectly, while also taking some heat off the running game. Story
34. Marvin Harrison, WR: Could still be a solid No. 2 if he's healthy, but he's falling off fast. One or two more years of solid production may be it.
35. Marcus Washington, LB: Aging playmaker who has missed 12 regular season games the last three years. Can still be a good starter.
*38. Chris McAlister, CB: He has lost a step and hasn't been healthy since 2006, but still has a lot of value in a thin year at cornerback. Big risk, moderate reward player.
*40. Jon Runyan, OT: Has gone an astonishing 12 years without missing a game, but had microfracture surgery this offseason. He's just getting too old to be a good risk.
46. Sean Jones, S: SIGNED He's a little overrated but could be very good with a strong Philadelphia Eagles surrounding cast. Jones leaves the Browns for the Eagles, who gave him a one-year deal. Story
48. Mike Peterson, LB: SIGNED Joins the Falcons after injuries and butting heads with coach Jack Del Rio robbed him of three good years in Jacksonville. Terms of deal with Atlanta were undisclosed. Story
50. Andre' Goodman, CB: SIGNED Had arguably his best season in the NFL last year, a reason the Denver Broncos signed him to a five-year, $25 million deal that includes $10 million in guaranteed money. Story
52. Derrick Brooks, LB: A shade of the player he once was. Can still bring great leadership to a young defense.
55. Lawyer Milloy, S: His best days are far behind him, but he's serviceable and can help bring along young players in the secondary.
56. J.P. Losman, QB: He's got great tools but makes poor decisions. He's a Leftwich-type reclamation project at this point.
64. Igor Olshansky, DT: SIGNED A 3-4 end who looked like he was going to develop into a respectable player until the Chargers coaching staff soured on him last season. He still got a four-year, $18 million deal ($8 million guaranteed) from the Dallas Cowboys. Story
66. Kevin Carter, DE/DT: He's not a three-down player anymore, but he can still play. A good veteran rotation player for the right price.
67. Deuce McAllister, RB: Still has a year or two left as a split-carry option if he could stay healthy. That's a big if.
72. James Sanders, S: SIGNED Re-signed with the New England Patriots for three years and $9 million.
73. Mike Nugent, K: SIGNED A change in climates might make him more of a factor from 50-plus after signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It's a reported one-year deal and financial terms were undisclosed. Story
74. L.J. Smith, TE: SIGNED The Ravens are banking that the young athlete stays healthy enough to contribute 40 receptions and 500 yards in their passing attack. Financial terms on the one-year deal were undisclosed. Story
75. Pete Kendall, G: The sun is setting on his career, but he's a good option for a team needing a one- or two-year guard who can mentor some younger players.
79. Jabar Gaffney, WR: SIGNED Signed with the Denver Broncos for four years and $10 million, including $3 million in guaranteed money.
84. Justin Miller, CB: Failed top pick with Jets has nice return ability if healthy.
89. Ty Law, CB: Law doesn't do training camp at this stage of his career. Wait till September.
95. Warrick Dunn, RB: A serviceable No. 2 who may have two years left in that role.
96. Amani Toomer, WR: Leading receiver in Giants history is a classy vet playing out the string.
98. Rudi Johnson, RB: Might have some mileage left on his body if he can get healthy.
100. Jason Craft, CB: Typical CB who survives a decade in the league because he knows the game.
