The NFL offseason is upon us, and all 32 teams will be focused on how they can improve their rosters. Free agency will come quickly, and there are several stars who are hitting the open market looking for new deals.
Below we will identify one free agent each NFL team should prioritize signing this offseason. Some of these will be dream scenarios, while others will be underrated pieces that fit a team's scheme and could come at a cheaper rate. Salary cap restrictions will be taken into account, although they will not totally dominate our selections. The only rule is that we cannot use the same player twice. Let's jump in.
Arizona Cardinals: CB James Bradberry
If we are being honest, the Cardinals need a lot of help this offseason. Defensively, the pass rush and secondary stick out, and the Cardinals could certainly use a veteran at cornerback. Plus, they have enough cap to buy one. Bradberry was a key addition for the Philadelphia Eagles last offseason, and he earned his first All-Pro honor at 29 years old with 44 combined tackles, 17 passes defended and three interceptions. Truly an underrated player.
Atlanta Falcons: QB Lamar Jackson
I think it's more likely Jackson is franchise-tagged and remains in Baltimore, but if you haven't noticed, it's impossible to predict what will happen in the NFL. If Jackson is allowed to talk with other teams, the Falcons should be in on him. Why? Well, he's a legitimate franchise quarterback who plays like Michael Vick, the Falcons are in the opposing conference, which could help things if the Ravens agree to move him, and the Falcons are projected to have the second-most cap space in the NFL this offseason.
Apart from reacquiring stability at the most important position in football, can you imagine Kyle Pitts playing with Jackson? Mark Andrews is a great tight end, but what could the unicorn Pitts be with Jackson?
Baltimore Ravens: WR DJ Chark
At 6-foot-4, 200-something pounds, I think Chark is the outside receiving threat the Ravens need. He didn't have a great season with the Detroit Lions, catching just 30 passes for 502 yards and three touchdowns while missing six games, but he did string together a few impressive performances. It's no secret that the Ravens need to add at wide receiver, and it won't break the bank to add Chark -- who could finally reach his potential with Lamar Jackson (if he stays).
