Quick glance at NFC West free-agent picture

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

NFC West rosters stand to shrink considerably in the short term as free agency begins Friday.

The chart shows how many players at each pos
ition are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents if they do not sign contracts before Friday.

I also listed the division's top free agents at each position, with apologies to J.J. Arrington, Bobby Engram, Will Heller and Bertrand Berry.

Seahawks linebacker Lance Laury will join the list because Seattle does not plan to extend a contract to him as a restricted free agent. I'm also not sure what the Rams have in store for offensive lineman Mark Setterstrom.

The Rams have seven offensive linemen scheduled to become unrestricted free agents, matching the number they have under contract. The number under contract will shrink if the Rams release Orlando Pace.
