NFL free agency is upon us!
While this year’s free agency class is a bit top-heavy, it contains several solid, difference-making players, many of whom could be on the move.
Not every player will start a bidding war like Kirk Cousins, but this year’s class contains some solid defensive players, at least one star offensive lineman, and some versatile running backs.
Take a look at the top 25 free agents below.

Previous team: Washington Redskins
Potential landing spots: Minnesota Vikings, New York Jets, Denver Broncos
One thing to know: Cousins is expected to start a bidding war for his services as the rare in-his-prime quarterback to hit free agency. The Vikings are rumored to be the favorite landing spot, with their stingy defense and cast of capable playmakers on offense.
Le’Veon Bell, RB*
Previous team: Pittsburgh Steelers
Potential landing spots: Pittsburgh Steelers
One thing to know: The Steelers gave Bell the franchise tag for the second straight season, and he doesn’t seem to happy about it. He may threaten to hold out of camp and/or the season until a long-term deal gets done.
Ezekiel Ansah, DE*
Previous team: Detroit Lions
Rumored landing spots: Detroit Lions
One thing to know: The Lions applied the franchise tag to Ansah. He has 12.5 sacks in 2017 and could be a nice weapon for new head coach, Matt Patricia.
