NFL teams have set their rosters heading into training camp, but injuries and poor play will have several veterans finding a new home in the next few weeks. A number of players are still looking for a contract and here is a look at the top players that could still help a team win in the upcoming football season.
Ryan Grant enters the 2012 season without a home, but the former Green Bay Packers running back could give a team some depth and leadership this season. Grant's numbers have dropped since a major knee injury in 2010, but he was also used much less by the Packers over the last two years.
Plaxico Buress returned to football last season and made 45 receptions for over 600 yards for the NY Jets and now he's looking for work. Buress is 6'5" and a real threat in the red zone and he will get picked up by a team before the start of the regular season; but his role is likely that of a third or fourth receiver.
Cedric Benson is old by running back standards, but the 29-year-old has rushed for over 1,000 yards for four straight years with the Cincinnati Bengals and has shown he still has some gas in the tank. Benson will likely take a job as a backup this season, but he could give a team some good production if needed as a starter.
The NFL gets tough on veterans that have a down year, but teams will have injuries and look towards these veterans to fill needs. Look for teams to sign these veteran and more over the next few weeks as the football season gets ready to begin.
