NFL Free Agency is here!
It’s that time when false hope is sold to NFL fans everywhere and that’s why NFL free agency is a tricky bastard.
If you’re a free agent in the NFL, you’re a free agent for a reason. That reason is usually not a good one. You’re usually a free agent because your previous team doesn’t think your worthy of the money that you’re asking for so you have to go find it somewhere else. I don’t know the exact stats, but free agency signings seem to flame out more than they actually work out.
That’s one reason why you have to tread lightly when it comes to free agency. Sure, your favorite NFL team can improve tremendously if you sign the right players to fit your system (just ask the New York Giants defense last year). More often than not though, the team that wins the free agency period usually ends up a big time disappointment the next season (just ask the Jacksonville Jaguars).
So, with all that out of the way, it’s time to take a look at every single free agent who signs a contract today and since I like you guys, I’ll also give you a grade on how I feel about each deal.
