Free agent nose tackles on the market Dan Leberfeld

B.J. Raji, Packers 6-2, 337 • 29

The Packers recently re-signed nose tackle Letroy Guion, so they are likely going to move on from Raji, who has had trouble staying healthy, including a lingering groin injury last year. When healthy, he’s a good 3-4 nose tackle who is hard to move.

Terrance Knighton, Redskins 6-3, 354 • 29

The massive nose tackle makes it tough for opponents to run up the middle. He is ideal for teams playing the 3-4 defense because he’s so good at taking up blockers, allowing others to make plays. Team management needs to stay on him about his weight, but when in shape, Knighton is a terrific football player.

Sammie Lee Hill, Titans 6-4, 328 • 29

Another massive nose tackle, Hill has decent foot quickness and long arms. He was banged up last year and started just five games, but had a good year in 2014 with three sacks and six passes defensed. He is versatile, with experience in both 3-4 and 4-3 fronts.
