With the draft in the books and rookie free agency’s busy period having passed, it’s time to take another look at veteran free agency.

To that end, we’ve brought back our All-Unemployed Team for another season. We’ve beefed up the squad, adding more players at most positions in the belief that clubs who find themselves shopping this late in the offseason are likely looking a specific skill.

Offensive guard and center look like two of the positions deeper in unsigned talent than others, and there’s also help to be had at tight end, defensive tackle and cornerback. However, other positions are quite thin — and likely to remain that way until late in the summer, when rosters begin to be trimmed to the 53-player limit.

In the meantime, consider the All-Unemployed Team a free agency snapshot — a handy ready list of unsigned personnel.
