Potential FA Safeties

As stated in my Potential FA OTs post, I scanned the list of free agents on every team to try to find possible safety upgrades for the Jets. Again, since I don't follow other teams, I don't know much or anything about many of these players. I was surprised at some of their stats as I had never even heard of them. Please chip in with your comments and vote in the poll. Some will be more expensive than others, but some may be fairly cheap, yet would be a definite upgrade over E. Smith, Pool or Leonard in coverage.

Info following the jump. I've listed the players I think will be the best, but probably the most expensive first.

COMMENTS: I don't know if the Jets can sign any of the top 4 as they may all be too expensive. Page, Gregory or Branch may be their best options, and Gregory and Branch are NY natives. Elam is said to be a liability in coverage, but he makes a lot of tackles and big plays.
