With the NFL season on an indefinite suspension, teams have more time to think of players they want to add to their roster – and they better make it quick.
NFL’s Free Agency started with some of the juiciest transfers ever. Ever heard of Tom Brady? That one guy who won six of the nine Super Bowls he played in while playing for the New England Patriots?. He won’t get his desire of playing for one team for his entire career as he’s agreed to sign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He’s just one of the many players who are finding a new home with other teams.
However, there are still more than enough valuable free agents that haven’t signed with any team. Here are just a few of those players.
Need a pass rusher? Clowney’s your guy. He doesn’t come cheap, though – a potential $20 million per season could be at stake if teams decide to duke it out for his signature.
He hasn’t really lived up to the hype of being the No. 1 overall pick, but that doesn’t mean that he’s been productive. In his six NFL seasons, he’s got 32 sacks, 80 quarterback hits, 252 pressures, and three Pro Bowl appearances. In the 13 games he’s played last season with 31 tackles, three sacks, four forced fumbles, 13 QB hits, and 47 pressures.
The teams that could potentially vie for him are the Seattle Seahawks, the Indianapolis Colts, ore the New York Giants.
With the Buccaneers’ imminent signing of Tom Brady, Winston will have to look for another team that needs his skills. However, the Colts and the Las Vegas Raiders are off that potential list. There are still some teams that are in need of a starting quarterback especially the Patriots after Brady vacated the spot. No one knows for sure if they are looking for a replacement at this point.
Last season, Winston made 60.7% of his passes, leading the league with 5,109 yards total with 33 touchdowns and 30 interceptions – another league-high. Last season, he also became the first quarterback to throw 450-plus yards in consecutive games. He’s also the first QB in league history to achieve 30 pass-touchdowns and 30 interceptions in a single season. His records speak for themselves which is a big plus if teams are looking to sign him (and they should).
Despite being a wide receiver (which some, if not, most teams are lacking), he hasn’t been signed yet which is quite odd. However, if teams do go searching for a wide receiver, Anderson’s one of the best out there. Especially now that DeAndre Hopkins and Stefon Diggs have secured their trades, options for Anderson may finally start to reveal themselves.
With his style of play, Anderson has a reputation for being one of the best deep-ball wide receivers in the league today. In the 16 games he played last season (where he started in 15 of those), he finished with 52 catches for 779 yards including five touchdowns. He’s also averaged 15 yards per catch. In the four seasons he’s been playing, he’s collected 207 catches for 3,059 yards and scored 20 touchdowns while averaging 14.8 yards per catch.
The teams that could potentially vie for him are the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, and the Green Bay Packers.
