I'm sure he is going to play the market. Free agency starts March 3rd.

I just read this this moring though:

The NFL free agent market is scheduled to open March 3, but it could be pushed back until April 1 if there is enough progress made in the next couple of weeks in negotiations for an extension of the collective bargaining agreement. According to a source with knowledge of the talks, there have been advances in some areas since the Super Bowl ended 10 days ago that could lead to a delay in free agency. The NFL and the union still have a very long way to go, but the sense of urgency has intensified. The dance, for now, hasn't changed: One step forward, two steps back.

Even though it will be a pain in the ass for everyone (fans included) if FA is delayed, a deal needs to be struck ASAP. If the 2007 were to be run cap free, it would be a nightmare for teams like the Steelers...
