Let's make a match: Finding the best free agent for your team - NFL - CBSSports.com News, Rumors, Scores, Stats, Fantasy Advice

The Green Bay Packers aren't going to sign any big name free agent from another team, but it's always interesting to speculate. A couple of the Packers own free agents are mentioned to other teams, while Pete Prisco picks a free agent for the Packers too.

Matt Flynn. He's listed as the best free agent for the Browns and Seahawks, two teams who could use an upgrade at quarterback. Though I'm not a huge Colt McCoy fan, I would expect him to improve with a couple of years more experience. But if I were the Browns, I'd rather find a franchise quarterback now rather than hope McCoy could become the next Drew Brees, who didn't really emerge as a good starting quarterback until his fourth pro season with the Chargers.

Jermichael Finley. To the Giants. I didn't really see that one coming. I'm not a fan of Mario Manningham, but I'd think the Giants would rather re-sign him. Plus, Jake Ballard might not provide much in 2012 as he recovers from a torn ACL, but he's a good tight end and he'll be part of their future.

Chiefs CB Brandon Carr to the Packers, and then Charles Woodson could move to safety. Though I'd actually expect Carr would replace Sam Shields and Woodson's role would remain unchanged.

I've seen Carr listed as the top cornerback available, or number two behind the Falcons CB Brent Grimes, but I've never been too impressed with Carr. He's a good player, but I wouldn't want to pay him $10 million per season. What do you think of him?
