NFL Free Agency Preview Part 2: Running Backs – 2023

by Matt Babich · Contracts & Free Agency

Welcome to the NFL Free Agency Preview Part 2: Running Backs! The 2022 fantasy season is over, which means it’s time to dig into the 2023 free-agent class. Every offseason, there are dozens of moving pieces around the league. These free-agent moves will play a pivotal role in how teams address the NFL draft and will change the fantasy landscape in the upcoming season.

In this four-part series, I’ll highlight the players to watch in the 2023 quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and tight end free agent classes. For each player, I’ll discuss the likelihood of being re-signed, good candidates for replacement, and the expected landing spot. All free-agent starters and noteworthy backups will be covered.

About the Free Agency Period

The legal tampering window, when preliminary talks can begin with unrestricted free agents, begins March 13, 2023 at 12 pm EST. The free agency window opens up on March 15, 2023 at 4 pm EST. Then, all free agents can begin discussions with NFL teams.

Teams can negotiate with their own players set to hit free agency beginning leading up through the franchise tag deadline of March 7, 2023. The franchise tag period opens up on February 21, 2023. Once a player is tagged, the team will have up until the July 15, 2023 deadline to sign that player to a long-term extension.

Teams with a Starter on the Market

  • New York Giants (Saquon Barkley)
  • Dallas Cowboys (Tony Pollard)
  • Las Vegas Raiders (Josh Jacobs)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (Miles Sanders)
  • Detroit Lions (Jamaal Williams)
  • Chicago Bears (David Montgomery)
  • Miami Dolphins (Raheem Mostert)

Teams with a Notable Backup on the Market

  • Cleveland Browns (Kareem Hunt)
  • Carolina Panthers (D’Onta Foreman)
  • New England Patriots (Damien Harris)
  • Minnesota Vikings (Alexander Mattison)
  • Seattle Seahawks (Rashaad Penny)
  • Miami Dolphins (Jeff Wilson)
  • Kansas City Chiefs (Jerrick McKinnon)
  • Indianapolis Colts (Deon Jackson)

Saquon Barkley

After being a full season removed from tearing his ACL, MCL, and meniscus, Saquon Barkley triumphantly returned to a league-winning season. With a new contract hanging in the balance, the fifth-year veteran averaged over 100 scrimmage yards per game and erupted for 1,312 (No. 4) rushing yards and 10 (No. 10) touchdowns. Barkley is the lifeline of the Giants’ offense and the biggest reason they were able to move the ball with no talent at wide receiver. There’s no questioning his talent level.

Saquon Barkley Advanced Stats & Metrics Profile

Barkley has said he wants to be a Giant for life, and Daboll speaks very highly of him. I expect he and the Giants to strike a long-term deal. If they don’t, and he is not franchise-tagged, he would be the hottest running back on the market by a wide margin. Despite some injury history, he is in the elite tier of running backs and has plenty of juice left to warrant a high-earning, long-term contract. If he hits the open market, these should be his preferred destinations.

Las Vegas Raiders

The home of the league’s leading rusher would be a good spot for Barkley to continue his career. He would have no problems receiving the same bell-cow level of opportunity that he earned in New York and would travel to an AFC West conference that has been susceptible to the run game in recent history. If the team were to part ways with Josh Jacobs, the team will be in need of a lead back with plenty of money to spend.

The Raiders, who will look to upgrade at quarterback this offseason, are far from a sure shot to make the playoffs. Their defense is laughable, the offense has a plethora of question marks, and the AFC West is a stout division in a terrorizing conference. Barkley would compete for the rushing title and be a phenomenal fantasy asset if he moves to Vegas. If the Raiders can find a way to bring Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady into town, their offense would be incredibly friendly for fantasy points.

Miami Dolphins

Picture Saquon in Mike Mcdaniels’ rushing scheme, dominating defenses in those beautiful teal jerseys. It would be tough for Miami to make this happen, being $7 million over the cap limit, but this would be the best situation for Barkley to enter. He would enter a zone scheme that perfectly suits his skill set. Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill propelling an explosive pass game will lighten the injury-riddle veteran’s load and allow him to stay fresher while still racking up production.

Miami would provide Barkley with the best run blocking that he’s seen in his entire career. While money is tight, they’re in a range where they can manipulate a few contracts and cut some loose ends to free up the necessary cash.

Projected Landing Spot: New York Giants

Tony Pollard

Tony Pollard‘s breakout campaign was a glorious victory for many in the fantasy community. Behind 3.30 (No. 8) Yards Created per Touch and an 8.8-percent (No. 4) Breakaway Run Rate, he surpassed the 1000 rushing yard threshold and scored 12 (No. 6) touchdowns. He finally got the Cowboys to admit that he is more talented than Ezekiel Elliott.

With $64.7 milion in cap dedicated to Elliott over the next four seasons, Dallas is hardly in a place to sign Pollard to a lucrative extension. Instead, Jerry Jones will likely opt to place the non-exclusive franchise tag on Pollard, retaining the star on a short-term discount. If he and the Cowboys were to part ways, the following are realistic landing spots.

Miami Dolphins

Tony Pollard‘s electric playmaking ability in this offense would be a dream come true for fantasy gamers and Dolphins fans alike. The do-it-all back would fit right into Mike McDaniel’s scheme. Pollard generated 5.9 (No. 5) Yards per Touch while facing 6.9 (No. 8) Average Defenders in the Box. With Miami’s Madden-Esque passing game, he’ll see stacked boxes less often and have truck-sized holes to run through.

Pollard is also a huge upgrade over Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson in the passing game, collecting over 1.8 Yards per Route Run in three out of four seasons. His dynamism would take more pressure off of Tua Tagovailoa and upgrade the Dolphins’ offense. Further, Pollard carries a more affordable market value for Miami. If he isn’t franchise tagged, expect McDaniel to make a huge push to give him the featured role he deserves.

Arizona Cardinals

The James Conner experiment is coming to a close, and the Cardinals will be on the lookout for potential replacements this offseason. With more competent management likely to be hired, Pollard should be a main target for this team in free agency. Due to a lack of receiving options in the opening half of the season, and no Kyler Murray down the home stretch, Conner was force-fed 58 (No. 12) targets. While he’s a reliable back and a goal-line weapon, Conner is closer to Ezekiel Elliott than he is to Tony Pollard.

Pollard would give the Cardinals backfield the dynamism they desperately need to form a serious rushing attack alongside Kyler Murray. Arizona has finished No. 21 and No. 26 in offensive rushing DVOA over the past two seasons (per Football Outsiders). While part of this is due to a below-average offensive line, a large portion of it is from rolling out a plodder as your bell-cow back. With the Cardinals owning plenty of cap space and looking to re-tool their offense, they’ll look to sign Pollard if they can.

Projected Landing Spot: Dallas Cowboys (via franchise tag)

Josh Jacobs

Despite a respectable opportunity and production profile throughout his short career, the fantasy community doubted Josh Jacobs‘s talent and potential workload under new head coach Josh McDaniels. Instead, McDaniels fed the fifth-year back as often as he possibly could, providing him with an 83.7-percent (No. 1) Opportunity Share and 20 carries per game. Jacobs more than proved his worth during his contract year, leading the NFL in rushing yards and recording above-average per-touch efficiencies.

With the Raiders swimming in cap space and both parties interested in a return to the sin city, it’s most likely the two sides attempt to get a deal done. Jacobs has said that he wants to be a Raider long-term. If Las Vegas is indeed serious about pursuing the likes of Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady, it would make the most sense for him to resign. If he and the team fail to agree to an extension, Jacobs becomes a prime candidate to receive a franchise tag. In the unlikely scenario where the two parties part ways, here is where we could see Jacobs next season.

Miami Dolphins

You’ve probably caught the theme by now. Miami will be pursuing all options at the running back position this offseason. I don’t want to spend much time re-stating the obvious. The Dolphins could use a dynamic lead-back to solidify their run game and take pressure off of Tua Tagovailoa. Adding Jacobs would also give Miami a more reliable pass-catching back.

It’s unlikely the pass-happy Dolphins would opt to clear a bunch of cap space to sign a 20-carry-per-game grinder to a big deal unless it’s for a next-level talent like Saquon Barkley. Despite being the rushing leader and deserving a large contract, Jacobs is not at that level.

Carolina Panthers

Despite respectable production from both D’Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard, the Panthers will be weighing their options at running back following the departure of Christian McCaffrey. While Foreman and Hubbard have proven to be worthwhile assets, their rushing success was boosted by offensive line play. Neither back has found success in creating yards for themselves. Additionally, neither back proved to be usable in the passing game.

Bringing in Jacobs gives the Panthers a true bell-cow to lean on once again. The veteran has displayed the ability to create big plays on his own and should have an easier time of doing so with an elevated offensive line. Further, Jacobs would add a talented pass-catching back into the mix, providing a safety blanket for the quarterback.

Projected Landing Spot: Las Vegas Raiders

Miles Sanders

After a weary 2021 season where he struggled to earn a significant Opportunity Share, there were doubts of Nick Sirianni’s commitment to Miles Sanders. This year, those concerns were alleviated. Sanders took hold of a 66.4-percent (No. 12) Opportunity Share en route to 1,269 (No. 5) rushing yards. He’s proven to be an above-average rusher, joining Dontrell Hilliard and Nick Chubb as the only three backs to record at least 4.7 True Yards per Carry in each of the last three seasons.

Depending on his self-evaluation, Sanders could price himself out of a return to his hometown of Philadelphia. Thankfully for Sanders, he’s far more talented than the backs behind him on this list and far more affordable than those above him. Given the landscape of the running back market and the Eagles’ current roster, it makes the most sense for both parties to work out a three-year deal. If that doesn’t happen, here’s where we are likely to see Sanders next season.

Chicago Bears

With David Montgomery likely to depart from Chicago, the Bears could look to another 2019 rookie to fill the void. The Bears do not appear to be fully committed to Khalil Herbert and will want to add competition to the backfield. Sanders performed more efficiently behind a similar quality offensive line. He’d fill the two-down role well for Chicago and would allow Herbert to focus more on receiving more third-down and change-of-pace touches.

Sanders has shown that he fits in well with the type of offense Chicago wants to run. Just as he was the supplementary back to Hurts, he’ll be the supplementary back to Fields. The Bears rushing attack was effective all season, finishing as the No. 12-best rushing offense in terms of DVOA. With Sanders in to replace Montgomery, they wouldn’t miss a beat.

Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals are desperate for a running back with some juice left in the tank. James Conner‘s is dwindling quickly, and there’s no guaranteed talent behind him on the depth chart. While Conner struggled to run behind the porous Arizona offensive line, Sanders has proven to be effective in spite of a lack of quality run blocking early on in his career.
What Arizona will miss most from Conner is his ability to fall into the endzone from the goal line. Receiving 49 (No. 4) red zone touches and scoring 11 (No. 9) touchdowns, Sanders has put the same ability on display in Philadelphia. Sanders in Arizona isn’t necessarily the best fit schematically, but the ambiguity around the front office and the level of talent makes him a prime target.

Projected Landing Spot: Philadelphia Eagles

Jamaal Williams

While the fantasy community was talking about a D’Andre Swift breakout, Jamaal Williams was stealing control of the Lions’ backfield. The 27-year-old veteran received the majority share of the backfield opportunity en route to 1,067 (No. 10) rushing yards and a whopping 17 (No. 2) touchdowns. The Goal Line King earned 22 (No. 1) Goal Line Touches and scored on 15 of them. The Lions, at this point, obviously view Swift as a pass-catching, breather back in relief to Williams.

With Swift on his rookie contract for one more season, the Lions will likely attempt to bring Williams back for a playoff run. Williams, despite the career season, will be 28 this season. It’s unlikely he prices himself out of a return to the Motor City. With plenty of names on the market, Detroit may also opt to move on from Williams.

Chicago Bears

Chicago needs, at the very least, a between-the-tackles grinder to replace David Montogmery and pair alongside Khalil Herbert. After getting torched by Jamaal Williams for 157 total yards and a touchdown in week 17, the Bears likely have their eyes on the veteran running back. The Bears are looking for a cheaper replacement, making an older prospect like Williams the perfect candidate.

The Bears want to give Herbert a shot to lead the backfield, especially given the hyper-efficient performances he put on display throughout the season. While he profiles as the better goal-line back, Williams’ ability to score 15 goal-line touchdowns will likely earn him the team’s goal-line and short-distance role. Adding Williams will give Herbert a veteran presence for Herbert to learn from. He’s also a vital locker room personality adept at getting the most out of his teammates.

Los Angeles Chargers

Austin Ekeler has gone on the record multiple times stating that he needs a backfield partner so he can stay fresh. The Chargers have failed to provide that thus far. After getting two monster seasons out of the once-undrafted free agent, the Chargers need to meet Ekeler’s request before it’s too late. Williams would be a great addition to take some of the low-value, high-risk touches away from Ekeler.

The Chargers are running failed experiments with their backup running backs. Williams is more than capable of handling the bulk of the short-distance and goal-line work. This would in turn free up Ekeler to do what he does best and keep him healthier in the process. While Williams would prefer to go to a team where he’ll earn more touches, this puts Williams in a position to be on a winning team. There are not many teams looking to sign a 28-year-old breakout to a lead-back role. At a certain point, Williams may have to settle.

Projected Landing Spot: Detroit Lions

David Montgomery

It appears David Montgomery‘s time in Chicago has come to an end. Tortured by horrendous run blocking, the former Iowa State Cyclone attempted to make the best of a bad situation as a runner in the Bears’ offense.  There’s nothing on Montgomery’s production profile that stands out. He’s an average rusher and a capable pass catcher who is getting pushed out of town by teammate Khalil Herbert.

The Bears, who shopped around the league all season and began to show more favor towards Herbert, are clearly prepared to move on from the former Iowa State Cyclone. Montgomery posted what appeared to be a farewell post before his final game and will likely opt to test the waters of free agency in an effort to collect some more cash and a bigger role.

Denver Broncos

With Javonte Williams tearing his ACL, LCL, and PCL, the Broncos will be looking to add backfield talent this offseason. Not only have the Broncos been dedicated to having a one-two punch in the backfield, but it will also be a while before Williams is fully rehabbed and back to his pre-injury explosiveness (if he’s even able to get back to that point). Montgomery’s steadiness behind Denver’s stout run blocking will provide a solid baseline for the Broncos’ run game.

Montgomery is a big upgrade from the likes of Melvin Gordon and Latavius Murray. He’s both a more dynamic runner and pass catcher and has far more juice left in the tank. With him taking the between-the-tackles and goal-line work, Williams will be freed up to keep a light load and utilize his juice by getting touches in open space.

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore has maintained one of the league’s best rushing attacks since Lamar Jackson was drafted in 2019. They’ve accomplished this with an injury-riddled J.K. Dobbins and a slew of average-at-best running backs that have come in as fillers. Dealing with knee complications all season following his surgery, Dobbins needs a back to split up the opportunity. While Gus Edwards is capable of being an effective No. 2, Montgomery would be a significant upgrade.

Montgomery would likely see a similar role that he earned in Chicago, getting around 12-15 touches per game. The issue with this addition is that paying up for Montgomery could very well take Baltimore out of the running for a notable wide receiver, a position they are desperately lacking talent for unless they part ways with Lamar Jackson. The team still has nearly $50 million in cap space on the books, so there’s a chance they can have their cake and eat it too.

Projected Landing Spot: Denver Broncos

Devin Singletary

Devin Singletary is a talented running back. He’s an average talent, but he’s still deserving of a starting role (or at least the chance to earn one). Singletary’s displayed the ability to make defenders miss and semi-efficiently rack up yards on the ground and has been the centerpiece of the rushing attack since he was drafted to Buffalo. The downside for Singletary is that no one in the Buffalo backfield receives significant opportunities. Playing on a pass-first, pass-often team has clouded the evaluation of his true talent.

The Bills drafted James Cook in the second round of the 2021 draft but rode Singletary as the starter all season. Although that would make it seem as if the Bills would prefer the same arrangement next season, it’s tough to see them keeping Cook bottled up for another season. The big question is whether or not Singletary takes a team-friendly deal or if he chooses to chase the money. There are not many spots looking to guarantee Singletary the same role, but the following teams would be in the mix.

Chicago Bears

Singletary would be looking for a similar contract as David Montgomery. Spotrac estimates that Singletary is worth $1.7 million less per season than Montgomery given his more robust production profile. They have similar talents. Both backs are in-between-the-tackles grinders who are mildly efficient and possess usable traits as receivers. Khalil Herbert showed promise in his rookie season but is not ready to be a bell-cow. Chicago needs a veteran to bolster the running back room.

Signing Singletary would allow Chicago to bring in a nearly-identical pair of running backs that they did last season without having to pay as much money as they would to retain Montgomery. He and Herbert would make for an effective one-two punch for the Bears to lay their offensive foundation on.

Baltimore Ravens

For all of the reasons that Baltimore would pursue Montgomery, you can apply to Singletary. It’s not widely discussed but, with the ability to save $4 million in 2023 cap space, the Ravens could potentially part ways with Gus Edwards. This way, they can upgrade their running back room without holding Edwards’s bloated contract.

Singletary would fit in well with the Ravens’ run-first attack. He would be the most talent pass catcher in the backfield, allowing Baltimore to be less predictable with their personnel and use their running backs more to propel the passing game. If he were to sign with Baltimore, who finished No. 2 in offensive rushing DVOA, Singletary would have the most promising fantasy outlook that he’s ever had going into next season.

Projected Landing Spot: Chicago Bears


There’s a plethora of backup running backs hitting the market this year. Backups are still very prevalent, especially towards the back half of the season, so let’s briefly overview the notable ones.

Raheem Mostert

Following Mike McDaniel to Miami, Raheem Mostert had plenty of opportunity to take a firm hold of the Dolphins backfield. However, whether it was Chase Edmonds or Jeff Wilson, the former Purdue track star couldn’t fully break away from his backfield partner. Boasting 5.0 (No. 20) Yards per Touch and 5.5-percent (No. 20) Breakaway Run Rate, Mostert is a desirable talent in a good scheme. At age 30, and carrying a laundry list of leg injuries, he’s not a backfield centerpiece.

Miami is in a prime spot to draft a running back and Wilson is the younger, preferred in-house option. This will make a return to South Beach a last-resort option for Mostert.

Other Potential Destinations:

  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Houston Texans
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • Denver Broncos

Projected Landing Spot: Arizona Cardinals

Kareem Hunt

Is Kareem Hunt washed? Or was he ignored by a franchise that was upset they couldn’t deal him for capital? Hunt has cleared a 25-percent Juke Rate in each of his six seasons in the NFL. Only Nick Chubb (5 years) and Josh Jacobs (4 years) have had similar stretches of efficiency since 2017. Additionally, Hunt recorded three straight seasons of at least 2.3 Yards per Route Run to kick off his career. Despite proving to be an effective playmaker, Hunt was hardly used in 2022.

A fresh start in a new office can rejuvenate anyone. Hunt will part ways with the Cleveland Browns in hopes to earn a larger role. These teams would be great fits for the veteran.

Other Potential Destinations:

  • Miami Dolphins
  • Chicago Bears
  • Kansas City Chiefs
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Denver Broncos

Projected Landing Spot: Kansas City Chiefs

D’Onta Foreman

D’Onta Foreman is a victory for modern medicine. After tearing his Achilles in 2017, the fantasy community called the time of death on Foreman’s relevance. His luck got worse after fully recovering in 2019 as he tore his bicep and missed the season. After a rough road, he laid the myth to rest this season after the departure of Christian McCaffrey. He’s averaged 120.9 rushing yards per game since 2021 in games where he earns at least 15 carries.

Following his career year, Foreman hits the free agent market once again. He’s gone on the record sounding very eager to return to Carolina. Whether that feeling is mutual remains to be seen. This team needs a true lead back. Plus, Chuba Hubbard has performed admirably as a backup and remains on a rookie deal. It’s likely Carolina tries to retain Foreman on a cheap deal.

Other Potential Destinations:

  • Houston Texans
  • Los Angeles Rams
  • Detroit Lions

Projected Landing Spot: Carolina Panthers

Damien Harris

Damien Harris has never been a bell cow back. He’s barely been a lead-back, failing to earn at least a 50-percent Opportunity Share in his NFL tenure. The one-dimensional back has been an average producer on the ground and has proved near-useless in the receiving game. He’s capable of breaking away but never found success in creating yards for himself. This season, he took a backseat to teammate Rhamondre Stevenson, and rightfully so.

While he isn’t the ideal lead-back, he is a suitable number two. New England will assuredly do what they can to retain Harris in 2023, but with Stevenson reining supreme, Harris will explore his options on the market. This is a rather dense free-agent class, and the running back market is already fickle. For this reason, it may be tough for Harris to find a better landing spot.

Other Potential Destinations:

  • Los Angeles Rams
  • Baltimore Ravens
  • Denver Broncos
  • Houston Texans
  • Chicago Bears

Projected Landing Spot: Baltimore Ravens

Alexander Mattison

Minnesota can only keep Alexander Mattison bottled for so long. The 25-year-old averages 132.6 total yards and a touchdown in his five games playing at least 60-percent of the snaps. Mattison has, in small spurts, flashed the ability to break tackles and explode for long runs. With the Vikings passing the ball more than ever, he saw a career low in carries this season. Going into his fifth season, Mattison is ready for more guaranteed playing time.

There were reportedly multiple teams interested in trading for Mattison before the deadline. If those prove to be true, the market for the former third-round pick will be hot. There are multiple teams that can offer a near-even split with the opportunity to fully take over the backfield. The biggest question at hand is whether or not these teams would prefer Mattison to a rookie.

Other Potential Destinations:

  • Los Angeles Rams
  • Denver Broncos
  • Chicago Bears
  • Houston Texans
  • Carolina Panthers
  • Arizona Cardinals

Projected Landing Spot: Los Angeles Rams

Rashaad Penny

Time has flown by for Rashaad Penny. One moment you’re a first-round pick, the next you’re 27 with four different medium-to-high severity lower body injuries. Penny was highly touted this offseason after going nuclear to end the 2021 season but struggled to continue the success. He averaged 17 carries per game in Weeks 13-18 in 2021. However, that dropped to 12.25 in his four fully healthy contests in 2022. Aside from a spike week against the Lions, the veteran was an afterthought.

The unavoidable takeover of rookie Kenneth Walker had been looming over Penny all season. When he went on IR, the Seahawks had no trouble feeding Walker who averaged 20.2 carries per game in his healthy starts. The dominance of the second-round pick will force Penny to look for better opportunities within the free-agent market. With worn tires, the market for Penny may be sparse.

Other Potential Destinations:

  • Houston Texans
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • Miami Dolphins

Projected Landing Spot: Houston Texans

Jeff Wilson

Jeff Wilson had a hot start to the 2022 season, cracking 100 total yards in three of his first five games. Before the trade deadline, Mike McDaniel decided to make a move and bring the veteran to South Beach. Wilson quickly became the preferred back, clocking at least a 60-percent Snap Share in five of his eight games as a Dolphin. He recorded a near-identical efficiency profile this season as his teammate Raheem Mostert. The two had a near-even split of the opportunities with Wilson getting the edge in both carries and targets.

With Wilson having trade capital invested in him and being three years younger than Mostert, Wilson is likely to stick around with Miami for at least another season.

Other Potential Destinations:

  • Houston Texans
  • Arizona Cardinals
  • Indianapolis Colts
  • New Orleans Saints

Projected Landing Spot: Miami Dolphins

Jerick McKinnon

In Week 9 of the 2022 season, Jerick McKinnon was finally unlocked. The 30-year-old veteran was the RB8 with 16.1 fantasy points per game from Week 9 on. McKinnon displayed the explosiveness we always knew he had, recording a hyper-efficient 5.56 (No. 1) Yards Created per Touch and 1.37 (No. 1) Fantasy Points per Opportunity. His role as a rusher was small, but valuable, receiving 28-percent of his carries in the red zone.

No team will be offering McKinnon a lead role with his age and injury history, nor will McKinnon want one. The role he carved out for himself in Kansas City is one that will allow him to extend the lifeline of his NFL career. While there will be plenty of teams who would love to have McKinnon be their receiving back, the most likely case is that McKinnon will want to stick around Patrick Mahomes and the perennial Super Bowl favorites.

There are so many moving pieces and potential scenarios with this year’s free-agent running back class, my head is spinning. The RB landscape will change drastically over the next few months, and the moves that are made will completely change how we’ll approach our fantasy drafts this summer. There have been very few official reports on free agents since the season has not yet ended, so take any predictions as conjecture. Next, we’ll break down scenarios for free-agent wide receivers. Thanks for reading!
