The market is going to be pretty bad for experienced cornerbacks and defensive backs in general. More players flood the market, thus reducing the market considerably. Just a handful of names available includes Sean Smith, Aqib Talib, Cary Williams, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and maybe Nnamdi Asomugha.
