From the teams' perspectives, of course they'd rather get the FA into the fold sooner rather than later. But, from the players' perspectives, if the same money will be available later on, I'd spend some time chilling with the family in the offseason and sign on right before training camp to miss all the OTAs.

Players also know that injuries to other players could also elevate their value on the market.

 

Nothing to lose by waiting.

Eric Winston, RT

The best player left on the other side of the offensive line, Winston has started every regular-season game since 2007 … and he was cut in both 2012 and ’13. Miami appeared to be a natural fit until the Dolphins signed Tyson Clabo. Just 29, Winston ought to find another team willing to give him an opportunity, if he lowers his asking price enough.

Possible landing spots: Carolina, Dallas, Tennessee

 

 

Saw this, too lazy to look through entire post to see if was inserted.

There has got to be something up with this guy other than money. The Texans dumped him and have a turnstile at RT since (not interest in signing him after the Chiefs), the Chiefs just dumped him 1 year after a signing a multi-year deal, the Phins picked Clabo over him....I don't entirely trust a guy that has talent but keeps getting dumped.
