One Major Signing Predicted for Every NFL Team

On March 11, the NFL’s table-setting frenzy officially begins. That’s when legal tampering between teams and free agents is permitted, two days before signings can become official at 4 p.m. ET on March 13. It’s also the day hundreds of millions of dollars worth of contracts will be reported in rapid fire, snapping up the league’s best available veterans as hopeful teams lay the foundation for a run to Super Bowl 59. We don’t know what exactly those signings will be. But given what we know about who is available and each team’s needs and salary cap space, we can at least begin to shape the wish lists for all 32 teams. For some, March will mark a spending spree. Others will have to be frugal. But everyone will bring in fresh veteran talent tasked with either keeping a good franchise chugging along or transforming the future of a bad one. Let’s make some educated guesses to who the biggest pickups might be by projecting one big free agent fit for each team in the NFL. The ground rule here is an assumption every free agent will be available and that each team will add a new face who is at least moderately high profile through the open market. Chris Jones probably isn’t leaving the Kansas City Chiefs — he said so himself at their Super Bowl parade — but that doesn’t mean teams can’t reach out. And if he were willing to leave, here’s the franchise that may be willing to fight hardest to sign him. Of course, adding big names gets tougher the further into salary cap hell you wade. Franchises like the New Orleans Saints and Buffalo Bills probably can’t land someone on a nine-figure contract since they’ll be shedding salary this spring. As a result, their high profile additions may be lesser known bargain pickups who could still play a major role in reshaping their 2024 outlook. Let’s look at the players who could be the best fits if they truly hit the open market. All salary cap space data is courtesy of the wildly useful Over The Cap. Jamie Squire/Getty Images Cap space: $41,716,463 Needs: EDGE, WR, CB, LB, QB Oh, we’re getting *serious* about rebuilding, huh? Kyler Murray played like a top 10 quarterback over the final six games of 2023. The fourth overall pick should land him a proper WR1. But that leaves a defense in serious need of help and a rising tide in Jones, a day-ruining presence who can line up across the defensive front and ruin opponents’ game plans.
