Pardon our dust.
We’ve added some new names to PFT’s 2013 All-Unemployed Team. In most cases, the additions have come because members have moved on to the ranks of the employed.
For instance, we replaced Andre Smith — who re-signed with Cincinnati — with Eric Winston. Winston, we suspect, will have a job this season. So when he signs elsewhere — and he will, because he doesn’t miss games and he’s a starter-caliber right tackle — we’ll replace him, too.
At the moment, offensive tackle remains one of the deeper positions in free agency. But that figures to change. Bryant McKinnie, the best left tackle on the market, is reportedly drawing interest. Tyson Clabo, like Winston, is a legitimate starting right tackle.
That said, not every position has as many solid starters left. Also, if you have followed the All-Unemployed Team from the beginning, you will notice some stagnation at a few positions, with running back, defensive end and defensive tackle three examples. Some notable players have yet to find new teams.
Finally, we’ll end with a note about the quarterback position. We’ve made a change, inserting a fairly young and mobile passer who’s shown a knack for winning into the lineup.
