Top 5 free agents still on the market

Sometimes leftovers can be pretty good. At this point in NFL free agency, with most of the top players off the market, there still are some enticing leftovers of unrestricted free agents. With the league's focus now shifting to next month's draft, teams still could find some decent bargains in a now-slow free-agent market. Here are the top five unrestricted free agents still looking for work:

(1) Darren Sharper, S: Postseason knee surgery -- a little more serious than what was reported -- scared off some teams. Still, Sharper is wanted and welcome back in New Orleans, and that might be his best option at this point. But should some safety-needy team fail to get one in next month's draft, Sharper will be healthier then, and he might be more attractive.

(2) Terrell Owens, WR: Owens' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said he has spoken with three teams about his client. But Owens might be forced to wait until after the draft, when a team such as the Chicago Bears, Seattle Seahawks or Oakland Raiders fails to land a quality receiver. Any team that gets Owens gets his talent -- and the circus-like atmosphere that comes along with him.

(3) Brian Westbrook, RB: While free-agent running backs LaDainian Tomlinson, Thomas Jones and Larry Johnson landed work right away, Westbrook did not. He has not even taken any visits. Some teams have questioned how healthy he is, but Westbrook would have to be able to help a team on third downs, in the red zone and in select spots. Unfortunately for some veterans, such as Westbrook, football is a young man's game for skills and salary.

(4) Willie Parker, RB: It's a similar story to Westbrook's, without the injuries. Teams are worried about Parker's age and production. He has spoken with the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles, but nothing has materialized with either team. Parker is now a free-agent bargain, anxious to get into somebody's camp. But running backs -- at least the value of them -- are getting beat up this offseason.

(5) Shawn Andrews, G: At one point not long ago, Andrews was one of the league's top offensive linemen. Even though there are questions about his dedication and condition, there are enough teams -- Washington, Buffalo, Seattle -- with enough offensive-line needs to think Andrews will not be out of work too long.
