The free NFL agency has nearly two weeks now, and the league has become tough since the legal tampering period began. The most surprising move so far must be Tom Brady who decides to leave the New England Patriots to join the buccaneers of Tampa Bay. Even though Brady has signed up, there are many skill positions that players are still available for the teams to grab.
There have been many players changing teams and the free agency has provided the sporting world with the only sense of normalcy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The year of the NFL league has come in full force with a lot of teams agreeing with the best free agents on the board.
Even though many players have engaged in the teams, there are still valuable free agents who have not agreed to make deals with a new team, including a top 10 on. This list does not include Cam Newton, who was released by the Panthers on Tuesday and was not in Pete’s original top 100.
These are the top 10 free agents as the second week of free agency continues and the best solutions for each of them in the future:
1. Jadeveon Clowney
Teams are in desperate need of passing accelerators and Clowney is still available. The price for Clowney will be high and could potentially reach $ 20 million per season if there was a bidding war.
Clowney was not fully up to the hype that he was the # 1 choice. 1 ever, but it was productive. He has 32 bags in six NFL seasons with 80 quarterback hits, 252 pressures and three appearances in the Pro Bowl. He also ranked exceptionally well with Pro Football Focus, particularly in the past two seasons. Clowney finished with 31 tackles, three bags, four forced fumbles, 13 quarterback shots and 47 pressures in 13 games in 2019.
The best landing points: Seahawks, Colts, Giants

2. Jameis Winston
Winston’s market has been drying up, especially since the buccaneers landed Tom Brady. Winston will have to look elsewhere for his next team, but Colts and Raiders are considered potential destinations. There are some teams that need initial quarterbacks, including Patriots and Chargers, but who knows if they are interested?
Winston completed 60.7% of his passes for a 5,109-yard leading championship with 33 touchdowns and 30 league interceptions. He became the first quarterback to throw over 450 yards in consecutive games and was the first quarterback in the history of the league to launch 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions in one season. His seven interceptions returned for the touchdowns are an NFL record.
The best landing points: Patriots, Chargers, Bears
3. Logan Ryan
Ryan would be a great value for any team that wants to add him to his secondary team. He finished with 113 tackles, 18 defended passes, four interceptions and four forced moves in all 16 games.
The opposing quarterbacks launched five touchdowns and got a passing rating of 88.7 for Ryan. Surely Ryan is about to start a year, but he is only 29 years old and is a reliable starter for any team that needs a corner kick.
Teams that failed to get Darius Slay should take a look at Ryan.
The best landing points: Cowboys, Giants, Bears
4. Jason Peters
Another aging has left the equipment which is still good enough to start in the NFL. The Eagles decided to move on to Peters after 11 seasons, allowing him to look for a starting opportunity elsewhere. Injuries have limited Peters in the past three seasons, which could harm his market.
Peters suffered 10 penalties last season. Since 2014, over 85% of offensive snaps have played. Oh, he’s also 38.
The best landing points: Titans, Seahawk, Chiefs
5. Shelby Harris
Harris finally had the opportunity to start in Denver last season and got the most out of it. Playing all 16 games, Harris finished with 49 tackles, six bags and nine passes defended as he rotated on the edge and muzzle.
Harris played only 60% of Broncos’ defensive shots, but offers the versatility needed for any defensive line. Harris may cost more than expected for a player who is sometimes inconsistent, but his positive side may be worth the investment.
The best landing points: Broncos, Cardinals, Colts
6. Damall Randall
A former cornerback with the Packers, Randall found a home in Cleveland for safety. He had 61 tackles and 2.5 bags in 11 games, hampered by a hamstring injury throughout the season. A tough culprit who was known for his helmet-to-helmet attack on last season’s wide Steelers Diontae Johnson receiver, Randall provides strength to any secondary.
Randall’s coverage skills aren’t great, but it’s a good start in this league.
The best landing points: Buccaneers, jets, Vikings
7. Bashaud Breeland
Breeland is an inexpensive cornerback, although he will look for a bigger deal in the free agency. The Chiefs got Breeland for just $ 2 million last season, as the 28-year-old cornerback was the key to consolidating their defense during last year’s Super Bowl championship.
Breeland started 15 games for the Chiefs, recording 48 tackles, two interceptions and eight defended passes. While Breeland conceded 18 yards to complete and five touchdowns, the opposing quarterbacks completed only 48.4% of their passes.
Sure, Breeland gives up on the deep ball, but it’s a solid NFL starter. It’s a “fold but don’t break” cornerback.
The best landing points: Chiefs, Vikings, cowboys
8. Markus Golden
Last season Golden ended with 10 bags and 72 tackles playing off linebacker in a 3-4 defense, so why can’t he find work? Production and age are working in favor of Golden, which is increasing its price. It doesn’t help Clowney not yet signed up with a team, hindering the catwalk market.
The inconsistency has plagued Golden, which has experienced two seasons of double-digit bags in five years, but has only 6.5 bags combined in the other three campaigns (30 games). Signing Golden is a boom or bust move, especially if you’re giving it more years and over $ 10 million a season.
The best landing points: Redskins, Seahawks, Rams
9. Daryl Williams
Williams is about to begin a trial season during which he was one of the NFL’s least reliable offensive linesmen. He conceded 12 bags and 35 total pressures, for Pro Football Focus, and was removed from the starting lineup mid-season before returning at the end of the year. The 2018 season was also tough for Williams, as he was limited to one game due to numerous knee injuries.
However, Williams demonstrated the versatility of playing guard or tackle on both sides of the line. He also had a strong campaign for 2017 when he replaced Mike Remmers as Carolina’s initial departure. If he can regain his health and better form, it could be a good option for a team that still needs help along the offensive line.
The best landing points: Panthers, Buccaneers, Bears
10. Kamalei Correa
Correa has made a solid, albeit unspectacular, contribution during his four-year career, but he has perhaps the best game he has ever played during the Titans’ post-season. A versatile linebacker who doesn’t turn 26 until the end of next month, can provide valuable depth and the ability to play both against the run and on the pass.
The best landing points: Crows, patriots, hawks
