WR | Donte' Stallworth | Philadelphia Eagles | Free Agency News, Fantasy
Reuben Frank, of PhillyBurbs.com, reports Philadelphia Eagles general manager Tom Heckert said the team is unlikely to re-sign WR Donte' Stallworth before free agency starts. Heckert said, "If he's healthy, he's a really good player. I think that will be kind of a wait-and-see deal because I don't think even he knows what he's worth. Getting him done before free agency, that's probably not going to happen. There's not a whole lot of wide receivers out there. It's tough to gauge. When he's healthy, he's a good player. People are going to say the same thing if he's injured (often), how much are you going to pay him? But he's young and he's fast. He's really fast. I think he'll probably end up signing a pretty good contract somewhere. If you look at last year, those (2006 free agents) got huge money and they were just OK guys."


Tight End

TE | Ben Utecht | Indianapolis Colts | Injury News

"In my past few years I've just gone year to year," Bruschi said following the AFC Championship Game. "I'm really emotional right now, so to say anything right now would be wrong. I need to sit back and reflect on this season." "I know you can't play forever, but when you're out there and you get dinged and you're down and you know you're hurt, but you're not injured, you sort of take inventory," Bruschi added.


Cornerback

CB | Asante Samuel | New England Patriots | Free Agency News
Mike Reiss, of the Boston Globe, reports New England Patriots CB Asante Samuel, who is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, says he is unsure where his future lies. "I don't know. I'll talk to (coach) Bill (Belichick) and see where it goes from there," Samuel said. "This is my first home and I love the guys in the locker room. I'd love to stay under the right circumstances." The Patriots could elect to keep Samuel by placing the franchise tag on him.
