There were a lot of bargains on the third day of free agency and there will be many more bargains going forward. This year, just like past years, some of the best deals come by waiting and not setting the bar the first day. These are some comparable players to whom the Colts signed and what they signed for:

Cornerback

CB Antoine Cason (1 year, $2 million):
Former first-round pick by SD, he has talent. He's still young too (27) and has not had a major injury.

CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CB, (1 year, $5 million).

Also, 27 years of age. This was another CB many of us were looking at. The Broncos really did well getting good players for value.


Guard

G/OT Willie Colon (1 year, $1.2 million).

OLB/DE

DE Michael Bennett (1 year, $5 million):
Had nine sacks last year for Tampa. They also were able to acquire Cliff Avril for 2 years at 15 million. The question was could either transition to OLB, but both signed for much less than expected.

Quentin Groves (2 years, $2.8 million).
A 3-4 OLB that went cheap and has shown potential. He had 46 tackles and 4 sacks last year as a backup.

DE/DT

DE/DT Mike DeVito (3 years, $12.6M; $4.2M guaranteed).
Mike DeVito is a solid defensive lineman who thrives in run support similar to RJF. He is 3 years older, but is a proven player with great stats for a DE.

3-4 DE Marcus Spears (2 years, $3.5 million).

Former first round draft pick who compares to RJF.

NT Terrance Knighton (2 years, $4.5 million).
Another quality signing by the Broncos. Terrance Knighton is a 330-pound nose tackle from past division rival Jacksonville.
