The NFL free-agency will be absolutely fascinating this year. Many quarterbacks hit the market, so we cannot know what is going to happen. The NFL will greatly influence all these free agents and their decisions. However, we can only wonder… What’s going to happen? Let’s see some of the predictions, shall we?
It might take a few games for him to get started, but the thunderous back of Alabama is a complete beast. The whole offensive system in Tennessee depends on the ball being hammered by Henry. There’s no way they can just let him go. Kansas City and Detroit seem to fit, but Henry is likely to get well paid by the Titans to ensure that he stays for the next couple of seasons. (Prediction: Tennessee Titans)
Fowler was the best LA pass in the current season. Much of the Rams’ money, however, is tied to its other members. Besides, LA faces the challenge of getting DT Michael Brockers to join the team. Arizona’s rival division has a lot of cash and will add Rusher edge to Chandler Jones’ work. (Prediction: Arizona Cardinals)
Chris Jones, one of the NFL’s most versatile defensive players, commands two teams for almost every game when he plays inside. He flashes elite speed as a defensive end when he gets behind opposing quarters. Because of his age (25) and position, he will be under a fairly heavy contract. As a free agent, Kansas City is determined not to let him go. As a free agent, Kansas City is determined not to let him go. (Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs)
Widely acknowledged for being a talented and volatile player, Marcus Peters was sent to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for a fifth-round selection by the Rams. Since joining the Ravens, Peters has regained his Pro Bowl form. During the first six games of the season, he caught three interceptions. Given the consistent performance of Baltimore and Peters’ recent rise, he won’t miss a game. (Prediction: Baltimore Ravens)
Brockers has shown since he was drafted from LSU that he is an outstanding NFL player. While he may not be the type to pop from the screen, he is very reliable as a starting defensive tackle. The Rams have a lot of money tied to a few players. It is unlikely that the Brockers will return when the Rams try to re-sign both Cooper Kupp and Jalen Ramsey. (Prediction: Denver Broncos)
Oakland is expected to have only two linebackers in the off-season. Thompson has become a really nice player for Carolina. He was college security and was athletic and versatile in covering smaller backfield players. Besides that, he’s great in run support. Thompson will represent the Bay Area (Sacramento) for a year before the team leaves Las Vegas. (Prediction: Oakland Raiders)
It’s a bit of a no-brainer. Rumblings suggest that Dallas does not offer Jones an extension (because of the potential Dak Prescott contract). Last offseason, Houston lost Kareem Jackson to Denver. The current starters Bradley Roby and Johnathan Joseph will both be in free agencies after this current season. Therefore, Houston will do everything possible to sign the free-agent group player, which many people see as the best defensive back. (Prediction: Houston Texans)
After Melvin Gordon stopped for an extension of the contract that never came, he didn’t look really great this year. Whereas he can’t return to Pro Bowl, the chargers seem satisfied with the cheaper option, Austin Ekeler. Gordon can do good to catch out of the background and, because the Chiefs need a reverse lead, Kansas City seems to be a perfect fit for this marriage. (Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs)
This is the best year Bell has ever had in his young career. On the back end, he has been a ball hawk and has been excellent in run support. Finally, for Bell, a former first-round pick, it appears as though the light is turning on. His contract is one to look at since Bell’s upside definitely allows him to make a little progress, even though he did not have a pro bowl yet. However, New Orleans may see him too much for them. (Prediction: Arizona Cardinals)
At Week 14, Dupree took 8.5 sacks, a career-high for the first-round pick. He is a key member of Pittsburgh’s suddenly emerging defense. In their 20s and Devin Bush, T.J. Watt, and Minkah Fitzpatrick, the Steelers created an excellent core. Pittsburgh is likely to re-sign Dupree for a truly lucrative deal to keep the group together. (Prediction: Pittsburgh Steelers)
We can’t really see Brees joining any other franchise anymore. He has lost a bit of his fastball, but at a relatively high level, Brees continues to play. Moreover, he is a beloved member of the community and a member of the franchise. In the hope that New Orleans will bring a Super Bowl trophy home within the next few years, he will likely resume a quick deal. (Prediction: New Orleans Saints)
Jacksonville will have to reduce what they have paid to acquire, or else they can’t sign Nick Foles or Ngakoue. One of the crown jewels of this class is the defensive end of the stud. The Jags want him back, but the Colts want him back, too. They have a humble need and plenty of cap space at the defensive end. (Prediction: Indianapolis Colts)
By the time this two-time Pro Bowler hits the market, he will only be 28 years old. Washington could re-sign it, but it was not known that the franchise made the right decisions. It’s easy to see that this could be a battle between Tennessee and the New York Jets. The latter found it particularly difficult to protect its quarterbacks and is dead-end in terms of sacks. (Prediction: Tennessee Titans)
Seattle traded for Clowney, and he has proved to be the best pass for the team. There are even moments when he dominates the field. Seattle would certainly not let Clowney go, having given up for him the considerable draft of capital this season. Seattle will be expensive to retain, but the investment will be worth it. (Prediction: Seattle Seahawks)
It’s time for A.J. Green to play for the contender. He was almost an afterthought, and he dropped down in Cincinnati. Green looks like an ideal fit for New England, as he is old (31), his history of injury, and his drive to play for a rival. These legs still contain some juice, and the Patriots seem to rejuvenate players far beyond their best form. (Prediction: New England Patriots)
Well, T.Y. Hilton is frequently hampered by repeated injuries and is not the same player as he used to be. Jacoby Brissett would really love to have a legitimate No. 1 receiver, and Cooper’s turf skills would be excellent. The offense of Indy would benefit instantly from the balance Cooper will bring. (Prediction: Indianapolis Colts)
From those who are tough on the field to those who bring culture to the locker room, Miami needs all kinds of players. Offensive Tackle Anthony Castonzo, an athletic and proven player, fits well for the offensive line. Although the Colts really want to re-sign him, there might be a cap space issue. (Prediction: Miami Dolphins)
You can expect the team that wrote No. 1 to re-up with Winston a few years ago. Winston, a well-known offensive guru, can throw two elite recipients and work with Bruce Arians. Assuming Tampa Bay gives Winston an adequate ground game, good numbers can be expected from him. (Prediction: Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
Since entering the NFL, Henry has suffered a series of injuries, although clearly talented. His future income could be affected negatively by his lack of health. New England is still looking for Rob Gronkowski’s replacement, and they will definitely be involved with something to get them a Henry caliber player on a discount. Henry would be totally lethal in Josh McDaniels’s offense. (Prediction: New England Patriots)
A bidding war will take place when it comes to Austin Hooper. All the Bears, Packers, Jets, Titans, Panthers, Bills, and Patriots need a great tight end. Because of his sticky and blocking ability, Hooper has become one of the best in the league. He will probably re-sign in Atlanta, but if he goes elsewhere, don’t be surprised. (Prediction: Atlanta Falcons)
Reed is in line for a massive increase in his salary last year after earning less than $2 million. In 2018 he had a defensive 10.5 sacks, and although in 2019 he had fewer than stellar sack numbers, he is still a great player against the run. Seattle is planning to rebuild its defense to make it an elite unit not to afford to let Reed go. (Prediction: Seattle Seahawks)
Rivers has a career full of personal achievements and the best quarterback ever played in a Super Bowl. However, it is also clear that he wasn’t the player he once was. Rivers simply don’t have enough zip to push the ball down properly, apart from alarmingly high turnovers. He and his family are also deeply rooted in San Diego, so the 38-year-old is likely to pend his cleats and retire to his pretty home in South California. (Prediction: Retires)
Los Angeles will have an open place, provided that Philip Rivers retires. Although Teddy Two Gloves is not the most flashy player, the center is a legitimate choice. He can move the ball efficiently and rarely causes a turnover. If LA chooses to produce a quarterback, Bridgewater will be a good stop-gap in the meantime. (Prediction: Los Angeles Chargers)
Barrett’s way is coming on a massive payday. He is the NFL leader in sacks as of December 5th (14.5). Pass rushing features have become a major premium in the game so that the 27-year-old won’t be short of supporters. If the rival of Atlanta Falcons tries to woo Barrett, it should not come as a surprise. Atlanta desperately needs brilliance, and the Barrett show is ahead of them all season. (Prediction: Atlanta Falcons)
Eventually, Tennessee will bid farewell to Mariota. As a starting quarterback, it does not seem as if Oregon’s former star is first-choice material. Pete Carroll, a real player interested in former Pac-12, will happily scoop up Mariota to make him the best football backup caller. The west coast doesn’t seem too far from Mariota. (Prediction: Seattle Seahawks)
Calvin Ridley, Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Michael Thomas are divided into the Panthers division (among others). That’s why the team never has too many quality corners. Former first-round pick Trae Waynes could go to Carolina at a nice discount on the market and other players in his position. (Prediction: Carolina Panthers)
Mike Mayock is a great fan of tough and hard-nosed players, and his record in drafting shows he aims at players from bigger schools and competitive players. Schobert fits the bill pretty well as a former Wisconsin product, as he is a surefire tackler who is seldom caught out of position. He helps to set the defense tone in dire need of consistency. (Prediction: Oakland Raiders)
Chris Harris, Jr.
For the Patriots, Harris Jr. can be of considerable value. He has a Championship pedigree, lots of experience, and is super competitive. Harris Jr. can be signed at a discount for Bill Belichick at this moment in his career. (Prediction: New England Patriots)
Dallas will certainly not let Dak walk, the same person who brought together a broken locker room. He is excellent and improves in the community, not to mention that he has full respect for everyone in the organization. The guaranteed money can be negotiated, but Prescott probably won’t go anywhere. (Prediction: Dallas Cowboys)
The division will take place between Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. We all know that Brady won’t join a team that’s not prepared to walk through the Super Bowl and that he can go to the West Coast. He is originally from there (SF) but spends his offseason there (LA). For the 49ers, it makes sense because they are not in the Super Bowl. Brady won’t hesitate to pursue a star with a strong running game. It’s almost a perfect fit for Tom Brady. (Prediction: San Francisco 49ers)
Josh Norman was released before a free agency, and his $75 million contracts saved $12.5 million from the Redskins but left other teams knowing that they could pick the Redskins ahead of them in the draft. Although we don’t know whether Buffalo Bills will choose him, he’ll probably sign the offer.
Bell is wear and tear, which Steelers are certainly afraid of, so there is certainly a split between Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, a different team certainly does not fear taking on this costly player, and if they want to play and eventually get the big win, our money is on Detroit, while Bell is their best bet.
The Rams have shown that they are willing to spend on Donald and do what they need instead of signing up for key players. In the future, the team wants to spend more money on retaining players such as Todd Gurley and Jared Goff. Nevertheless, Donald is just as valuable, and if not the most valuable, we expect spending on him to be more beneficial than other people.
We know that Mathieu values his entire team and the potential as a whole. After we all were surprised by his Houston Texans pick, he wants to play on stacked defenses and a loyal union. We think that the opportunity for him, probably for the Bills, is open, but if it doesn’t work, it’s the cards for him in New England too.
Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham is a strong player, a valuable player, and works extremely well under Pat Shurmur. Certainly, he will have an interest in several teams, but he must stay with the Giants after his injury if he wants to win a title, and they’ll be happy to get him. His home is where this player is and should be.
Mack is looking for a well-deserved new contract and is sure about his team’s alpha right now, with a new coach coming in and things that will change. We believe that Mack could leave Oklahoma for the New York Jets; the Jets will have a ton of room and willingness to put him in the franchise’s front. The Raiders are better prepared to fight or expel it if we say so.
DeMarcus Lawrence has thrived as an edge rusher; his pay-day is up, and what’s known is coming. The best choice is Oakland, and it fits because some rooms may be open. After all, if this is a good chance and the Raiders can go far with him, we expect them to leave.
Cobb has been a bit inconsistent with the Packers, and it is predicted that things will shake up if they don’t make the Super Bowl. If Cobb ends up being part of the changes, we foresee Tennessee being the first in line to sign him. Tennessee has a wide space for the receiver, and making money to make this move makes logistical sense.
Offensive linemen rake in heavy paychecks in the field of free agency, and we suspect Lewan’s next in line. The Titans will probably free him with various options, but the Bills need to get to grips with and the money to sign Lewan. We, therefore, believe that Lewan is heading for Buffalo without improving his arm.
The Cowboys know that Ezekiel Elliot will lead them because his team is very well aware of his worth and other teams, and thus, keeping Martin around is worth the money for them. Zack Martin, the all-pro guard, wants to keep the cash dollar. Dallas needs his impact, so we expect him to continue to do so.
It was reported that the Cowboys had made an offer to trade for Thomas, but terms could not be met, and it looks like he is leaving Seattle soon. Dallas is our best bet, but we assume some incentive deal will take place. This purchase is on the cards, and Dallas likes to have an all-pro safety.
This lethal pass-rusher is 32 years old and has shown that he can stay healthy with the Titans in three seasons. His choices are open, but his most likely choice is to sign him with the Cowboys as an original from All-American Houston.
The Vikings are willing to spend a great deal on retaining the players they need, and Hunter is young and will resign him to his game and an asset that we predict. Minnesota understands that this is the right course, and we see this happening.
We are talking about the next quarterback on the top free-agent market. He has shown efficiency and productivity to Buffalo over the last three seasons, and we believe that he’s heading towards Cleaveland. The best choice is to sign it for the Jaguars, and it works well as Blake Bortles would.
This player has shown inconsistency in the past, but recently, it will certainly be in demand. He is thought to most likely move from Lions to Arizona; that makes sense because they need an edge rusher that will change the game for them; Ansah can. However, it is predicted that this will not be a long-term contract.
Another safety that is not known to many is Anthony Harris. After his impressive 2019 season, he might get a very nice deal. He has six Minnesota Vikings DB picks, and he did a great job in the middle when required.
The Los Angeles Rams ILB was played by Cory Littleton, coming off his best season yet. His best football is yet to be played, just 26 years old. He is currently, with a bright future, an active and athletic linebacker.
And though many fans may not recognize his name, Justin Simmons has certainly caught the NFL personnel’s eye. He’s young, athletic, and a ball hawk. He’s young. There’s a lot of value here. He played for the Denver Broncos FS the last time.
In 2019, Arik Armstead had his best season, reaching the right moment. It is unlikely that the 49ers will keep him long. He will surely get a mega-deal from some team soon.
He brought his career back to life last season with the Tennessee Titans, coming off a bench and leading them to playoffs. He’ll probably get some kind of tag, but now what’s his real worth?
