I'm not sure if you'd consider these guys big names, but here goes:

Jairus Byrd (S) - Buffalo

Felix Jones (RB) - Dallas (Who I think would be great here with Ballard, he just needs a good coach to push him to try)

Josh Cribbs (WR) - Cleveland

Connor Barwin (LB) - Houston

Tracy Porter (CB) - Denver

Delanie Walker (WR/TE) - San Fransisco

Antonio Rodgers-Cromartie (CB) - Philadelphia

Rey Maualuga (LB) - Cincinatti

LaRon Landry (S) - Washington

Glenn Dorsey (DL) - Kansas City

Jones dont need anyone to push him in my opinion, what he needs is to get the majority of the carries, Cant get yards if you dont get the number of carries(not sure why so many dont seem to understand that), 106 attempts through 14 games wont get it done, he does have a small fumble problem though

Felix Jones?  NOOOOOO..  that dude is Bob Sanders Jr..  always hurt.   

 

Indy is fine at RB...   maybe a big bruising stud but all in all I really like what they have. 

 

I would not mind seeing Brown come back, although he is not the personification of health.

Rey Maualuga (LB) - Cincinatti

LaRon Landry (S) - Washington

Glenn Dorsey (DL) - Kansas City

By big names, I mean people that if we go after, we will have to compete with the other 31 teams to get him (not literally all 31 other teams but you get what i mean), players where 2 or 3(max) teams will look to go after them ( I highlighted those where we will have tons of competition to get), hope that clears things up :)

No I wasn't suggesting Jones and I dont want Cribbs, he would be useless here, he is a glorified Punt and Kick Returner nothing else and we already have guys that can do that

Yeah, I meant Dominique :P

As for Jairus Byrd, I think he should be priority #1. He and Bethea would be scary in the defensive backfield.

we would have competition for Porter, Landry, Maualuga

Your right about them aswell, but at CB I'm ( like others) hoping Asomugha is cut from the eagles and we pick him up. For SS I would like someone like Jairus Byrd or Dashon Goldson. For ILB I think we won't need Maualuga cos its  Freeman and Angerer are actually not bad at ILB

I don't think the vast majority of the players listed here are "under the radar"....   I think most all of them are easily on most everyone's radar.

Here's a name way, Way, WAY under the radar.    I wasn't going to bring him up until the off-season and he won't generate any buzz or excitement here...   but I've kept an eye on him from a distance for several years.

 

He's Ramses Barden, a tall WR for the New York Giants.   I think that's an organization that has repeatedly demonstrated it knows personnel and especially knows WR's.

 

Now, he's never broken out.  He doesn't play much.   But, he's never been cut either, so I don't think of him as a bust.   He's been there 4-years and when he gets a chance, he produces.    He's 6'6" and 224.   A former 3rd round draft pick.   He'd be the Kris Adams we had (only better I think)  and I think we could get him for cheap.   Say, 2 years and $2 Mill total.   Who knows,  maybe even cheaper...

 

Here's his Bio:

I'm not expecting this to happen, and won't be disappointed if it doesn't.   But he's been high on my "under the radar' list for some time now.

Louis Delmas SS for the Lions. Manny Lawson OLB, I think is a free agent. Keenan Lewis CB, Steelers to name a few under the radar guys.

Delmas has yet to play a whole season and only 17 games the last 2 years , intriguing but I think a Safety can be drafted in the middle rounds with players who are coming from the draft who are healthier, lets say 3rd or possibly 4th if we chose that route, Baccarri Rambo, Personally I think Tom has produced just enough(Not all that good in my opinion) that Grigson and our coaches give him another year to prove himself, keep in mind this is basically his first year as a full time starter,

Ryan Lilja would get absolutely trounced in our man blocking scheme.

OG Matt Slauson, 26yrs old and has been a real solid reliable starter for the Jets over the last 3 years. And lord knows we need the help for the interior oline

I love the way Louis Delmas plays. However he reminds me a little bit of Bob Sanders in the fact that he is often injured. I know he's missed several games this year with the Lions.

    •       Dang right!  I already have my "Fire BPRoland!!" thread penned, and a twitchy finger on the Submit Reply button...      .   .   .      \     Just caught up on this thread... nice job folks.
    •   Going back to 2013 (because we can't count 2012 on Chuck's resume can we?) in the 1st Qtr the points differential breaks down as:   Positive: 27 Games Even: 11 Games Negative: 26 Games   Surprising... 
    • "Where'd you get it? [A dreamweaver hanging off a Kia Sorento's rear view mirror]. My ex girlfriend. Ex girlfriend? What happened? Was she cramping your style? Did she have too much [emotional] baggage? Did your mom hate her?"    "I'm Coby Bryant. Coby plays basketball. Yeah, I know. I just meant that I was the Coby Bryant of tennis...If you never called it quits [Darren], you could have been as good as Tiger. Tiger Woods plays golf. I know. I just meant like the Tiger Woods of tennis."    "Do you remember when I played with Dash Stevens? He was the worst. You're way better than him [brother]."   "Look at you...You still haven't made a move for her since the Fifth grade...You want me want me to hook you up with that sweet caboose?"    The following quotes are taken from a 2014 comedy that revolves around the sport of tennis. Doubles Men's tennis to be exact called "Break Point" directed by Jay Karas. This 1 hour & 30 minute picture is self explanatory with no real left turns in it that will surprise or astonish you overall. Here, in a nutshell, is the plot: An older brother named Jimmy [Jeremy Sisto] is a wise cracking alcoholic & womanizer who desperately wants to return to the professional tennis circuit. There's only 1 problem: Nobody & I do mean nobody wants to coach or partner with Jimmy on the court. He's burned a lot of bridges. You submit a name & there's a good chance Jimmy screwed them over in some form or fashion. Actually, to be more specific, Jimmy needs to win matches as an amateur in Palm Springs, Florida to even get a shot at competing in the US Open as an unranked player. Hades, Jimmy even did a horrible thing to his younger sibling named Darren [David Walton]. He dumped his doubles partner & teacher for an instructor named Dak Stevens that Darren never saw coming several years ago so there's definitely some bad blood there or at least a huge unresolved grudge anyway.    Darren is in his 30's, divorced, & a substitute teacher in NY City. Did I mention that an 11 yr old student named Barry [Joshua Rush] follows him around like a lost puppy on the cusp of Summer Vacation? What's funny is this kid is always grilling Darren with questions & my first quote at the start of this review is reminiscent of an expert on relationship advice except for the fact that Barry hasn't hit puberty yet. Barry lives with his grandmother since his biological mother can't raise her son or won't due to an addiction problem or she likes to party too much instead of being a responsible parent. Obviously Barry is looking for a father figure mentor in his life & he has chosen Barry to fill that rather large void. Darren reluctantly offers to teach Barry some pointers on tennis every Thursday afternoon. A tall undertaking since Barry's hand eye coordination appears to require considerable work.    Jimmy & Darren's dad is a local animal veterinarian named Jack played by the always believable JK Simmons.  Jack's primary assistant is a pretty blond woman named Heather [Amy Smart]. Darren has always had a serious crush on Heather since he was little growing up in the same neighborhood. He just gets tongue tied around her using any excuse to avoid her. Heather has always had an attraction to Darren as well & she finds his nervousness around her charming & cute. You know the links Darren will go to not get flustered near her like listening to Billy Joel in his car. Stuff like that.    Barry is a good kid who wears loud outfits with flamboyant colors on them. Jimmy, on the other hand, reminds us all of the legendary John McEnroe always complaining with judges & competitors over whether the ball landed in our out. I kept hearing that song by Asia 'Soul Survivor' in my head written about John's unlikely return from a devastating injury in his tennis career.    "...And from the wreckage I will arise
      Cast the ashes back in their eyes
      See the fire, I will defend
      Just keep on burning right to the end."    Basically, we all know what's gonna happen here. Darren & Jimmy show Barry that his mother's erratic behavior isn't his fault, how to stand up for himself, & that some people just can't be saved no matter how much you try to help them or make things right. They, the brothers, don't make the US Open cut, but Darren finally grows a backbone & asks Heather out at match point with her no good, high maintenance boyfriend sitting right next to her. A bold, & yet never before seen jolt of public confidence from Darren that paid off in the end. Sweet.    Break Point is far from sophisticated or even elaborate for that matter. I just liked it because of the 2 brothers & Barry. A motley crew that just works. It's just interesting to see a crass guy, a refined guy, & a naive kid with hardly any world experience hang out together & give 1 another a boost of confidence, self-worth, & testosterone. Let's roll with a B- here.        I like this Joe Walsh/James Gang song "Walk Away" since Jimmy preferred to walk away from responsibility or hard work when obstacles presented themselves until about the last 25 minutes of this flick.     [One of the best drum covers I have ever heard actually really tight.]     
    • Slow starts. We were leading by the end of Q1 on more occasions than we were losing last year.
