Release of Bly deepens FA CB pool

Posted by Chris Brown on February 18, 2009 – 2:29 pm

In a cornerback free agent pool that appears a bit thin this offseason, Jabari Greer looks to be in position to command some pretty good offers on the open market provided Buffalo doesn’t re-sign him before then. However, Denver’s release of veteran Dre Bly strengthens the list.

Bly is probably past his prime, but he’s still a capable corner and could be more attractive now based on his track record and affordability. Baltimore’s Chris McAlister is also out there now after his release and rumors are already out there that the Jets might be interested with the Rex Ryan ties to the Ravens.

I’d still take Greer over Bly at this stage in their careers, but Bly is a more recognizable name and that could have an impact in the free agent market.
