Who are the best 2017 NFL free agents?
The 2017 NFL offseason will feature some intriguing names in free agency. Here’s a complete list of all the impact players hitting the market.
Now that Super Bowl 51 is over, don’t think football season is done quite yet. Though a short break is in order, football picks up again on March 9, when players can start signing with teams. With several huge names available, NFL free agency should be an exciting and interesting part of the offseason.
The biggest names available include Kirk Cousins and DeSean Jackson. Both are coming off strong seasons for the Washington Redskins. The ‘Skins will hope to keep both of them, but they might depart for greener pastures somewhere else. Martellus Bennett is coming off a Super Bowl run after gambling on himself.
