Updated: March 2nd
We are less than two weeks away from the start of NFL free agency. Teams can officially sign free agents starting on Wednesday, March 16th at 4 PM ET, when the next league year begins, but they negotiate with agents during the legal tampering window that begins on Monday, March 14th.
Using free-agent rankings from a variety of sources, we have ranked the available free-agent pool using their consensus ranking score.
Here are some notes on how to interpret the table below:
- Seven sources were used and the "total" column is the sum of those rankings.
- The lower the score, the better. For example, Davante Adams was the consensus top-ranked free agent and his score was 7.
- For free agents that were unranked for a source, we considered those free agents to all be tied for the next ranking.
- Example: ESPN ranked 50 free agents and every free agent not included in their rankings received a score of 51.
Players designed with the franchise tag and restricted free agents (RFAs) will be excluded from these consensus rankings.
