He is scheduled to make $11.8 million in 2011.

RB | Bernard Scott | Cincinnati Bengals | Free Agents

Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne indicated that he would like to receive a new contract from the team but said that he will report to training camp on time and will not hold out. He is entering the final year of his contract and is scheduled to make $5.95 million.

Offensive Tackle

OT | Doug Free | Free Agent | Free Agents
Free-agent OT Doug Free (Cowboys) might be hard to re-sign, as it appears with the new collective bargaining agreement that he'll be an unrestricted free agent.

Free is most likely the team's first priority when the lockout is lifted.
