The NFL season is almost over guys.

It’s time for the lucky NFL teams that were good enough to crack the playoffs this year to focus on winning the Super Bowl.

But what about the teams that didn’t make the playoffs and have no more hope to hang their hats on?

Well, those teams need to start preparing for the NFL off-season and as we all know, the NFL off-season is mainly two parts. The NFL Draft and free agency. Those are the most important aspects of the off-season for any team looking to crack the playoffs next season and get their name into the Super Bowl mix.

So who are the big-named free agents that teams should start preparing to make offers for?

You came to the right place.

The following is a list of potential UNRESTRICTED free agents that could be hitting the open market in a few short weeks. Does your favorite team need to make some immediate upgrades? This list will help you figure out who your team should be aiming to get.


(NOTE: I wrote this a few days ago, but due to an illness I had to put it on hold for a bit. That’s why some players are still listed even though they’ve already signed an extension with their team.)
