    The All-Scrap Heap Team

    I thought this would be a fun exercise. Basically, put together a team of guys that were cut from one team or were out of the league and signed with anyone either during the 2012 off-season or 2012 regular season. Here's mine:

    QB: Peyton Manning
    RB: DuJuan Harris
    FB: Jorvorskie Lane
    WR: Jacoby Jones
    WR: Danario Alexander
    TE: Dallas Clark
    OT: Ryan Harris
    OG: Rex Hadnot
    OC: Dan Koppen
    OG: Jake Scott
    OT: Barry Richardson

    DE: Jason Babin
    DT: Dwan Edwards
    DT: Ropati Pitoitua
    DE: Wallace Gilberry
    OLB: Jerrell Freeman
    MLB: Demorrio Williams
    OLB: Shawne Merriman (really, the options are that bad)
    CB: Darius Butler
    S: Stevie Brown
    S: LaRon Landry
    CB: Terence Newman
    NB: Robert McClain

    KR/PR: Trindon Holiday (gotta give Mr. 16-0 some recognition)

    I'm sure there are some guys I missed, but I'll be interested to see what other people come up with.

    Ahahahaha, can't believe I forgot Peyton. I guess mentioning him and scrap heap in the same sentence threw me off. I'll edit him in because that's freaking bad.

    You originally had something about Philip Wheeler here, who was simply signed as a FA after his contract expired.

    No, he technically doesn't fit the criteria.

    Joique Bell would be a good fit at RB although he doesn't QUITE fit the criteria. He was signed in like week 16-17 last season, so a few weeks before the offseason started for the Lions.

    Running Backs
    Top 5
    1) Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings: 454 DYAR (459 rushing DYAR, -5 receiving)
    2) Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks: 410 DYAR (361 rushing DYAR, 48 receiving)
    3) C.J. Spiller, Buffalo Bills: 392 DYAR (301 rushing DYAR, 92 receiving)
    4) Frank Gore, San Francisco 49ers: 317 DYAR (268 rushing DYAR, 49 receiving)
    5) Ahmad Bradshaw, New York Giants: 265 DYAR (230 rushing DYAR, 35 receiving)
    Analysis: Not many surprises here. Although Peterson's season wasn't quite as impressive as his yardage numbers would indicate (as discussed last week, he is stuffed for a loss far more often than most elite backs), he still had enough rushing value to top the list of all players at his position despite finishing below replacement level as a receiver. With a surge in the final game, Peterson ends up with the 11th-highest rushing DYAR total since 1991, and the highest since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2006. Lynch set career highs with 1,590 yards rushing and 5.0 yards per carry. Spiller averaged 6.0 yards on 207 carries. He and Peterson (6.0 yard average on 348 carries) are the fifth and sixth players in NFL history to top 6.0 yards per rush on at least 200 carries, joining Jim Brown, O.J. Simpson, Barry Sanders, and Jamaal Charles. Bradshaw's an odd case. He had only six rushing touchdowns on the season, but he led the league in red zone rushing value, as he constantly put his teammates in position to score while rarely crossing the goal-line himself. The two names who just missed the list also warrant mention. Joique Bell of the Detroit Lions finished a few decimal points behind Bradshaw. With 52 catches for 485 yards, he has become one of the league's premier receivers at his position. In seventh place was Washington's rookie sensation Alfred Morris. He finished fifth in rushing value alone, but was below replacement level as a receiver, and he failed to make the top ten rookie seasons since 1991.

    Where's Danny Woodhead? BB just stole him from the Jet's Scrap heap (AKA the practice squad)

    Also Mike Williams (drafted by DET, later waved and got picked up by SEA) could make this list.
    Broncos be like:

    Scrap heap? $18 mil for the 2012 season is considered a scrap heap player?

    I expect we have a different view of what a scrap heap is.

    Well, that is just a detail. No one considered him scrap heap. That was more financial than anything else.

    Dan Koppen is the definition of a scrap heap guy. Cut by the Patriots, signed to a 1 year deal for under a mil. Plays all year.
