Default 2015 free agents

http://nfltraderumors.co/2015-nfl-free-agents-list/

I will add a detailed plan with my thoughts later. But this could be the best free agent class EVER. Lots of talent out there.

Default Re: 2015 free agents

ok, I'll get the obligatory "wrong forum" out of the way. That said, I think that this year we really need to look at FA hard. Hoping the cap exceeds expectations and gives us a little to play with

Very few teams are built from the draft alone.

Default Re: 2015 free agents

Virgil Green is the TE that I would sign in FA. He should be a reasonable FA signing. Went to Nevada with Kaepernick and has Gates/Julius Thomas ability. Green has the speed to stretch the defense between the hashes.

Aldrick Robinson has the speed to stretch a defense and can KR/PR.

Of course Cobb is the WR I want most of all. That unfortunately means Bye to AJ. (Not gonna happen.)

Neither Cobb or Smith will see FA.

I'd be real happy with Roy Miller and Cecil Shorts

Default Re: 2015 free agents

There is a crazy amount of talent on that list. Some monster years from guys who are going to get paid as well. You have to wonder how the amount of elite talent in the FA market is going to affect the contracts being offered. Once the stars have got their mega-millions, there could be some very good value pickups who are proven starters who the teams that sign the big names then can't afford to squeeze in.

That about the worst list of AJ "replacements" someone could come up with.

In other WR news the Cardinals apparently are not going to cut Fitzgerald even if they have to carry his $23.6 mil cap hit in 2015.

I really wish you'd have used the quote feature. I was about to argue a point I really don't disagree with out of habit until I saw the link.

Free agent lists by position:

QB | RB | FB | TE | WR | OT | G | C | Specialists
S | CB | LB | Edge Defenders | Interior D-Line

Free agent lists by team:

ARZ | ATL | BAL | BUF | CAR | CHI | CIN | CLE | DAL | DEN | DET
GB | HOU | IND | JAX | KC | MIA | MIN | NE | NO | NYG | NYJ
OAK | PHI | PIT | STL | SD | SF | SEA | TB | TEN | WAS

Quote:
- The overall ratings only tell part of the story and feature no weighting for specific facets of play...

- All ratings and snap counts are from the 2014 regular season only and ratings between players of two different positions are not meant to be compared.

- Sorting players by position and ranking won’t necessarily get you the same order we’ve used in some of our articles. That’s because we’ve done more to put the numbers into context. The grades require intelligence applied to them.

- This list of players consists only of players who ended the season on a roster in 2014 and are scheduled to become free agents when the 2015 league year begins, or players who have been released during the offseason; players that are exclusive rights free agents are not included.

- Player ages are as of September 1, 2015.
