The trading window for the 2019 NFL free agency period starts on Monday, with transactions that can be formalized at 3pm. Wednesday. As usual, the signatures should be fast this season and several players could get contracts of less than $ 10 million a year.
Where will the best players in this year's class go? We made forecasts for 10, according to the pay equity room, the interest of the team and the player's adjustment.
Nick Foles quarterback at Jacksonville Jaguars
It's the easiest to predict. The Denver Broncos exchanged for Joe Flacco, then treated Case Keenum at the Washington Redskins. Besides the Miami Dolphins, who could cut Ryan Tannehill, what other team is looking to sign a starting quarterback?
Although the Jaguars know that it is unlikely that a war will be launched, Foles could reach about $ 20 million a year. What will be interesting is to see how Foles' signature affects the rest of the free agent quarterback market. Many passers of this year's class will likely have to sign for much less than expected.
Runner The & # 39; Veon Bell at Jets New York
In my column of bold forecasts earlier in the off season, I wrote that the Houston Texans might end up landing from Bell, and that's still the case. But like last year, when they were ready to offer the biggest free agency deal to Kirk Cousins, only to see him sign with the Minnesota Vikings, the Jets should offer the biggest deal to Bell. Do not be surprised, however, if the Baltimore Ravens get into the auction.
Wide Receiver Tyrell Williams at Cleveland Browns
The category of broad agents in the category of free agents this year is mainly composed of slots receivers. That should help Williams, a 6-foot-4 outdoor sports target, win the biggest receiver contract, about $ 12 million a year. Williams is excellent in the red zone and will give Baker Mayfield an important goal to complete Jarvis Landry. The Colts of Indianapolis will also participate in Williams.
Matt Paradis Center at the Jets New York
The Jets will likely end up being the most active team in free play, and their biggest task out of the season is to rebuild their offensive line. Even though Paradis has just finished a season marked by injuries, it's a good point of anchorage to build around the line.
Earl Thomas at San Francisco 49ers: Free Security
Former teammate Richard Sherman tries to recruit Thomas into the 49ers, but he said he thought Thomas would go to the Dallas Cowboys if all the offers were clear. The Cowboys have five high-priced players who need contract extensions, so they will not make an offer for Thomas. The veteran defensive playmaker wants $ 15 million a year, but he'll settle for less and go to the 49ers.
Landon Collins Safety at the Detroit Lions
I still can not believe that the New York Giants did not attribute the franchise attribute to Collins, which is one of the three guarantees of the past decade at the Pro Bowl in three of its first four years. Thomas and Eric Berry were the other two. The Lions have eliminated Glover Quin, but they will strive to reach a 25-year high that can only improve.
John Brown wide catcher at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This one is a bit tricky because the Bucs are tight against the cap and they may have to release DeSean Jackson for Brown to be on the list. Coach Bruce Arians still wants a speed catcher in his attack, and Brown, who signed a one-year contract with the Baltimore Ravens last year after playing for the Cardinals of ################################################################################# Arians a little earlier in his career, could well expand.
Devin Funchess Broad Buffalo Bills Receiver
The Bills briefly entered Antonio Brown's draw, but said they were not caught off guard – apparently to have discovered that Brown did not want to be a Bill. Coach Sean McDermott and General Manager Brandon Beane know Funchess since their stay in Carolina. This is an important recipient who can help rebuild the recipient body.
Daryl Williams versus the New York Giants
General Manager Dave Gettleman started by attacking the Giants 'offensive line by trading against Browns' guard Kevin Zeitler, dismissing defenseman Olivier Vernon and exchanging fourth-round picks. Because he's known Williams since his debut as Carolina Panthers general manager, it's easy to predict that he would leave after Williams to fill their void at the right tackle.
Large Golden Tate receiver at New England Patriots
Tate is considered the best slot machine receiver available in free agency, and coach Bill Belichick is still looking for receivers that can behave in the middle of the field. The Philadelphia Eagles traded a third round pick to acquire Lions Tate in mid-season. When he had a hard time making a difference, he had a decisive touchdown during the team's wild card round on the Bears. The Patriots apparently tried to swap Randall Cobb of the Green Bay Packers last season, and it's safe to say they'll be adding a receiver this season to take care of an exhausted group of players.
