Free agency has slowed to an absolute crawl but that doesn’t mean that rosters are set just yet. Everyone is looking to the draft but there are still veterans on the street that will not only find a home but will make a difference too.

Free Agent Tiers – 2016 – 6.0
NOTE: Tiers 2, 3, and 4 have comparable talent but differ in terms of age, injury history, character concerns, and household name value.

 

Tier 1 – Franchise Cornerstones… maybe.

  • Malik Jackson – Broncos – Defenisve End/Tackle – has agreed to terms on a 6-year $90 million deal with Jacksonville Jaguars; the deal includes $42 million in guaranteed money making Jackson one of the highest paid defenders in league history; Jackson was a force in Denver and will lead the Jags’ defense in a pivotal season for fourth year head coach Gus Bradley.
  • Jason Pierre-Paul – Giants – Defensive End – has signed a one-year deal with the New York Giants worth up to $10.5 million; JPP’s market was volatile and he opted to re-sign with the only team he has ever played for as he attempts to prove that his hand injury (fireworks accident) will not affect his ability to wrap up and finish plays.
  • Danny Trevathan – Broncos – Linebacker – has signed a 4-year deal worth $28 million with the Chicago Bears; Trevathan graded out as the #6 ILB by PFF in 2015; prognosticators are split on Trevathan’s impact, some believe him to be a decent player that had success because he was surrounded by great players in Denver’s defense; I believe Trevathan was a play-making difference-maker in the heart of the Broncos defense competent against the rush and the pass; a true three-down linebacker.
  • Lamar Miller – Dolphins – Running Back – has signed with the Houston Texans on a 4-year $26 million deal; not yet 25-years-old Miller has averaged 4.6 yards per carry throughout his young career; durable with home run speed and receiving chops Miller will join DeAndre Hopkins as the focal points of the Texans’ offense.
  • Janoris Jenkins – Rams – Cornerback – has signed with the New York Giants on a 5-year $62.5 million deal that includes $29 million guaranteed; Jenkins is a talented cornerback but gambles a bit too much in coverage; he’s allowed 22 TD passes over four seasons but also has the most defensive touchdowns (6) by a defender during that time span.
  • Olivier Vernon – Dolphins – Miami – has signed a 5-year $85 million deal with the New York Giants; the deal includes $40 million in guaranteed money; Vernon has lived in the shadow of Cameron Wake and most recently Ndamukong Suh but is a young, consistent pass rusher entering his prime; Vernon graded out as the best 4-3 defensive end in 2015 totaling 81 combined sacks, hits, and hurries; Vernon will bookend JPP.

Tier 2 – Plug and Play starters.

  • Doug Martin – Buccaneers – Running Back – has re-signed with the Buccaneers on a 5-year $35.75 million deal; Martin stayed healthy and ran with a physicality and determination that we haven’t seen since his rookie season;the Bucs retain the NFL’s second leading rusher (2015).
  • Mario Williams – Bills – Defensive End – has agreed to a 2-year deal worth $ 17 million with the Miami Dolphins; the signing of Williams led to DE Olivier Vernon’s transition tag will be rescinded.
  • Kelechi Osemele – Ravens – Offensive Guard/Tackle – has an agreement in place with the Oakland Raiders on a 5-year $60 million deal; the versatile and talented o-lineman was easily the best offensive lineman available via free agency; this is one of the more astute free agent signings the Raiders have made in recent years.
  • Bruce Irvin – Seahawks – Linebacker – has signed with the Oakland Raiders on a 4-year $37 million deal; Irvin has demonstrated the ability to consistently hold up against the run and offers some pass rushing ability as a strong side linebacker or a down lineman in pass rushing situations; Irvin has averaged just over 5.0 sacks a year through four full seasons.
  • Eric Weddle – Chargers – Safety – has signed with the Baltimore Ravens on a 4-year $26 million deal with $13 million guaranteed; the Ravens have struggled mightily to find consistent play at the safety position since the departure of Ed Reed and while Weddle, a Pro Bowler, will make an impact the recent release of S Will Hill creates a vacancy next to Weddle in the Baltimore secondary.
  • Matt Forte – Bears – Running Back – the long time Bear has agreed to terms with the New York Jets.
  • Ryan Fitzpatrick – Jets – Quarterback – Best quarterback on open market… still un-signed.
  • Sean Smith – Chiefs – Cornerback – has signed a 4-year $40 million deal with the Oakland Raiders with $20 million guaranteed; the 28-year-old cornerback offers rare size at 6’3 – 6’4 and is coming off one of his better seasons as a pro.
  • Derrick Johnson – Chiefs – Kansas City Chiefs – has re-signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on a 3-year $21 million deal; the ageless wonder lead the Chiefs with 116 tackles and tallied four sacks after missing most of the 2014 season with an Achilles injury.
  • Tamba Hali – Chiefs – Linebacker – has re-signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on a 3-year $22 million deal; no longer a dominant defender, Hali is still a capable pass rusher in one-on-one matchups.
  • Damon Harrison – Jets – Nose Tackle – has signed with the New York Giants on a 5-year $46.25 million deal that includes $24 million in guaranteed money; the 2-down run stopper ranked second against the run according to PFF among interior defensive linemen in 2015; “Snacks” will be the pivot flanked by Olivier Vernon and JPP.
  • Prince Amukamara – Giants – Cornerback – has signed a one-year prove it deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars; Amukamara is a solid starter but has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career.
  • Reggie Nelson – Bengals – Safety – expected to sign with the Oakland Raiders.
  • George Iloka – Bengals – Safety – has re-signed with the Bengals on a 5-year $30 million deal.
  • Robert Ayers – Giants – Defensive End – has signed a 3-year $21 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with $10.5 million guaranteed; the 31-year-old is a consistent run defender and totaled 9.5 sacks in 2015 a career high; Ayers is a major upgrade to the Bucs’ defensive line.
  • Marvin Jones – Bengals – Wide Receiver – has signed with the Detroit Lions on a 5-year $40 million deal with $17 million in guaranteed money; Jones was the class of a weak free agent receiver crop and will be expected along with incumbent Golden Tate and TE Eric Ebron to replace the production of recently retired Calvin Johnson. 
  • Haloti Ngata – Lions – Defenisve Tackle – has re-signed with the Detroit Lions on a 2-year $12 million deal and will continue to anchor the interior of the Lions’ defensive line.
  • Donald Penn – Raiders – Offensive Tackle – has re-signed with Oakland Raiders on a 2-year $14 million deal; the Raiders are the only franchise that currently boasts a projected starting offensive line where each of the starters had a grade of 79.0 or higher by Pro Football Focus in 2015.
  • Casey Hayward – Packers – Cornerback – has signed a 3-year $15.3 million contract with $6.8 million guaranteed; a relatively modest contract for the 21st ranked cornerback in coverage out of 118 according to PFF; the 26-year-old Hayward played primarily in the slot in Green Bay but could play outside the numbers in base sets in San Diego.
  • Rodney McLeod – Rams – Safety – has signed a 5-year $37 million deal with the Philadelphia Eagles; McLeod graded out as the 10th best safety in 2015 by PFF.
  • Alex Boone – 49ers – Offensive Guard – has signed a 4-year $26.8 million deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
  • Brandon Brooks – Texans – Offensive Guard – has signed with the Eagles on a 5-year deal worth $40 million.
  • Jahri Evans – Saints – Offensive Guard

  • Brandon Boykin – Steelers – Cornerback – has signed a one-year deal with the Carolina Panthers; terms undisclosed.
  • Charles Johnson – Panthers – Defensive End – has re-signed with the Panthers on a one-year $3 million deal after an injury riddled 2015 season; at 29-years-old Johnson is still a difference-maker and reportedly turned down more money elsewhere to stay in Carolina; Johnson tallied 9 tackles, 3 sacks, and 2 forced fumbles during the Panthers’ 2015 playoff run.
  • Louis Vasquez – Broncos – Offensive Guard

Tier 3 – Good players you’ve never heard of.

  • Jaye Howard – Chiefs – Defensive End/Tackle – has re-signed with the Kansas City Chiefs on a 2-year $12 million deal after grading out positively against the run and logging a career high 5.5 sacks in 2015.
  • Derrick Shelby – Dolphins – Defensive End – has signed a 4-year $18 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons; Shelby ranked 10th among 4-3 defensive ends in 2015 by PFF.
  • Jerrell Freeman – Colts – Linebacker – has signed a 3-year $12 million deal with the Chicago Bears where he will team up with Danny Trevathan to form one of the NLF’s best inside linebacker duos in the NFL; Freeman and Trevathan were PFF’s second and sixth ranked ILBs in the NFL respectively in 2015.
  • Ian Williams – 49ers – Defensive Tackle – has re-signed with he 49ers on a 5-year deal.
  • Kelvin Beachum – Steelers – Offensive Tackle – the Jaguars have signed Beachum to  a one-year $4.5 million deal with a 4-year $35.5 million team option.
  • Mitchell Schwartz – Browns – Offensive Tackle – has signed a 5-year $33 million deal with the Kansas City Chiefs; Schwartz was arguably the best right tackle on the market.
  • Ramon Foster – Steelers – Offensive Guard – has re-signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a 3-year pact.
  • Rashad Johnson – Cardinals – Safety – has signed a one-year deal worth $2 million with the Tennessee Titans.
  • Mike Neal – Packers – Linebacker – has re-signed with the Green Bay Packers on a 2-year deal; Neal led the Packers with 37 hurries in 2015.
  • William Hayes – Rams – Defensive End – has re-signed with the Rams on a 3-year $17.5 million deal and is expected to replace Chris Long in the starting lineup.
  • Akiem Hicks – Patriots – Defensive Tackle – has signed with the Chicago Bears on a 2-year $10 million deal with $5 million guaranteed; Hicks graded out as the 14th ranked DT in 2015 according to Pro Football Focus; CPGM expects Hicks to play the 5-technique in Chicago; only Chandler Jones was better on New England’s D-line and neither Jones nor Hicks are on the Patriots roster heading into the 2016 season.
  • Tahir Whitehead – Lions – Linebacker – has re-signed with the Lions on a 2-year $8 million deal.
  • Zach Brown – Titans – Linebacker – has signed with the Buffalo Bills on a one-year deal; terms undisclosed.
  • Vincent Rey – Bengals – Linebacker – has re-signed with the Bengals on a 3-year $11.5 million deal; Rey can play all three linebacker position sin Cincinnati’s 4-3 and has led the Bengals in tackles in 2014 and 2015.
  • Jeremy Lane – Seahawks – Cornerback – has re-signed with the Seahawks on a 4-year deal; the 26-year-old slot corner is one of the unsung heroes on Seattle’s defense and help stabilized their pass defense in 2015 once he returned from injury.
  • Isa Abdul-Quddus – Lions – Safety – has signed a 3-year $12.75 million deal with the Miami Dolphins; Abdul-Quddus graded out as the top safety in the league from Week 10 thru Week 17 according to PFF.

Tier 4 – Starters w/???

  • Brock Osweiler – Broncos – Quarterback – has signed with the Houston Texans with a 4-year $72 million deal; Osweiler is 5-2 in 7 career starts but had uneven performances throughout the 7-game stretch; it’s GREAT being an NFL Quarterback.
  • Russell Okung – Seahawks – Offensive Tackle – has signed a one-year deal with the Broncos worth $ 5 million which includes a 4-year team option worth roughly $12 million annually.
  • Chris Long – Rams – Defensive End – has signed a one-year deal with the New England Patriots.
  • Tashaun Gipson – Browns – Safety – has agreed on a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars for 5-years $35.5 million; Gipson had a down 2015 campaign after an impressive 2014 breakout; expected to have a clean bill of health heading into 2016 the ball-hawking safety could form an impressive duo with “box” safety Jonathan Cyprien.
  • Chris Ivory – Jets – Running Back – has signed with the Jaguars on a 5-year $32.5 million deal; with incumbent T.J. Yeldon and Ivory in the fold the Jaguars have the makings of a talented backfield duo.
  • Andre Smith – Bengals – Offensive Tackle – has signed with the Minnesota Vikings on a one-year $3.5 million deal.
  • Walter Thurmond – Eagles – Safety – contemplating retirement.
  • LaDarius Green – Chargers – Tight End – has signed a 4-year $20 million deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
  • Aldon Smith – Raiders – Linebacker – has signed a 2-year deal with a base value north of $11 million; the talented albeit troubled pass rusher could make close to $20 million through incentives including $250K for each game Smith is on the 53-man roster; Smith cannot apply for re-instatement until November of 2016 stemming from a litany of off-field issues.
  • Antonio Gates – Chargers – Tight End – has re-signed with the Chargers on a 2-year $12 million deal.
  • Travis Benjamin – Browns – Wide Receiver – has signed a 4-year $24 million deal with the San Diego Chargers; Benjamin will serve as a legitimate deep threat for Phillip Rivers opposite Keenan Allen.
  • Dwayne Allen – Colts – Tight End – has agreed to a 4-year $29.4 million deal to re-sign with the Colts; Allen has a long injury history but is a complete player in a tight end starved league; the Colts did an awful job of utilizing Allen in the offense in 2015 but this contract suggests a significant increase in his role moving forward.
  • Adam Jones – Bengals – Cornerback – has re-signed with the Cincinnati Bengals on a 3-year deal; the 33-year-old is still playing at a high level and has enjoyed some of his best years on and of the field in Cincy.
  • Greg Hardy – Cowboys – Defensive End – excellent football player, social pariah, and locker room cancer.
  • Richie Incognito – Bills – Offensive Guard – has agreed to a 3-year deal worth $15.75 million to remain in Buffalo; the controversial left guard made the Pro Bowl last season.
  • Mark Barron – Rams – Linebacker – has re-signed with the Rams on a 5-year $45 million deal; Barron successfully transitioned from safety to linebacker after he flamed out in Tampa Bay; he’s proven to be a solid linebacker with some playmaking ability but a $9 million annual salary is a stretch to say the least; Barron fits the profile of today’s 4-3 outside linebacker.
  • Rishard Matthews – Miami – Wide Receiver – has signed with the Tennessee Tians on a 3-year deal worth $15 million; Matthews will form a three-headed wideout tandem with Dorial Green-Beckham and Kendall Wright serving as the slot option.
  • Evan Mathis – Broncos – Offensive Guard – has signed with the Arizona Cardinals on a one-year $6 million deal; Mathis has graded out as the top run-blocking offensive guard according to PFF in each of the last five seasons.
  • Nigel Bradham – Bills – Linebacker – one of three former Bills (Jim Schwartz) defenders that has signed with the Philadelphia Eagles; Bradham graded out last among 4-3 LBs according to PFF and was a poor systemic fit in Rex Ryan’s defense; the dollar amount is unknown but the deal is for two years.
  • Junior Galette – Redskins – Linebacker – has re-signed with the Washington Redskins on a one-year deal worth up to $4 million.
  • Stephen Tulloch – Lions – Linebacker – was expected to be released but currently remains a member of the Detroit Lions.

  • Joe Barksdale – Chargers – Offensive Tackle – has re-signed with the San Diego Chargers on a 4-year deal worth $22.2 million and $10.5 million guaranteed; Barksdale is an average to above average right tackle and was the Chargers’ most consistent offensive lineman among a poor group in 2015. 
  • Stefen Wisniewski – Jaguars – Center/Guard – has signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles worth roughly $2.5 million.
  • Rueben Randle – Giants – Wide Receiver – has signed with the Eagles on a one-year deal that could total between $4-5 million with incentives; the base salary is $1.025 million.
  • Zach Miller – Bears – Tight End – has re-signed with the Chicago Bears on a 2-year $6 million deal.
  • Jarvis Jenkins – Bears – Defensive End – has signed a 3-year $6 million deal with the New York Jets; Jenkins will serve as depth behind Muhammad Wilkerson, Sheldon Richardson and Leonard Williams.
  • Benjamin Watson – Saints – Tight End – has signed a 2-year deal worth $8 million with the Baltimore Ravens; Watson at 35-years-old set career highs in receptions (74), receiving yards (825), and tied his career high in TD receptions (6).

  • Jermon Bushrod – Bears – Offensive Tackle – has signed a one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins; Bushrod will re-unite with new head coach (form offensive coordinator) Adam Gase and may be moved inside to guard, a position the Dolphins continue to struggle at.
  • Donald Stephenson – Chiefs – Offensive Tackle – has signed a 3-year $14 million deal with the Denver Broncos.
  • Ben Jones – Texans – Center – has agreed to terms on a 4-year deal with the Tennessee Titans; graded No. 22 of 40 centers by PFF; the Titans are making a concerted effort to improve their offensive line; they are expected to move incumbent LT Taylor Lewan to right tackle and select LT Laremy Tunsil with the first overall selection in the 2016 Draft; the Titans are expected to finalize a trade for RB Demarco Murray as well.
  • Sean Weatherspoon – Cardinals – Linebacker – has signed with the Atlanta Falcons; “Spoon” returns to Falcons the team that draft him out of Missouri; if he can stay healthy a return to a 4-3 scheme at OLB could do wonders for Weatherspoon’s career and the Falcons’ fortunes.
  • Antonio Cromartie – Jets – Cornerback
  • Greg Toler – Colts – Cornerback
  • Mike Wallace – Vikings – Wide Receiver – has signed with the Baltimore Ravens on a two-year $11.5 million deal.

  • B.J. Raji – Packers – Nose Guard – has indicated that he will not play in 2016.
  • Coby Fleener – Colts – Tight End – has signed with the New Orleans Saints on a whopping 5-year $36 million deal; Fleener is a capable move tight end but he is an average run blocker at best and lacks top end athleticism; his counting stats will look good in a Sean Payton offense led by Drew Brees but his price tag raises an eyebrow.
  • Anquan Boldin – 49ers – Wide Receiver
  • Alfred Morris – Redskins – Running Back – has signed a 2-year deal worth $3.5 million with the Dallas Cowboys.
  • Mohamed Sanu – Bengals – Wide Receiver – has signed a 5-year $32.5 million deal with the Atlanta Falcons; the contract practically guarantees Sanu a starting role opposite Julio Jones; Sanu has impressive physical tools but has been inconsistent; Sanu led the league in drops in 2014 (15); however Sanu is an upgrade to both Roddy White and Leonard Hankerson.
  • Chase Daniel – Chiefs – Quarterback – has joined former offensive coordinator Doug Pederson in Philadelphia on a 3-year deal worth up to $36 million with incentives; it’s good to be an NFL Quarterback.
  • Cedric Thornton – Eagles – Defensive End – has signed a 4-year $18 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys with $6 million guaranteed; Thornton will play the one-technique in Dallas after playing the five-technique in Philadelphia.
  • Terrance Knighton – Redskins – Nose Guard – has signed a one-year deal with the Patriots worth $4.5 million.
