NFL Free Agency Rumors March 24th Edition

Jadeveon Clowney – DE

  • 2019 team: Seattle Seahawks

27-year-old defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is coming off a solid season in his only year with Seattle even if he did record a career-low three sacks, not including his rookie season when he played in just four games. Still, Clowney is one of the game’s best pass rushers. The former No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft is still on the board because of his high asking price of $20 million or more per season.

The Seahawks made an initial offer to bring back Clowney during the NFL Scouting Combine on a multiyear deal with an average annual value of $18.5 million. The Miami Dolphins also reportedly offered Clowney a multi-year deal in the $17 million per year range. Miami moved on from Clowney and went for Shaq Lawson instead and now the market has narrowed significantly for a player that recorded 18.5 sacks in 2017 and 2018 combined. My best guess is that he now swallows his pride and re-signs with the Seahawks.

Jameis Winston – QB

  • 2019 team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft is mired in a state of purgatory despite throwing for a league-high 5,109 yards and 33 touchdowns last season. The problem is that Winston has been a turnover-producing machine since being the top overall pick in the 2015 draft. Last season, Winston became the first quarterback in NFL history to throw at least 30 TD passes and 30 interceptions. Now, with the Bucs signing Tom Brady and a bunch of other quarterbacks taking backup jobs, the market for Winston’s services looks awful. Still, I suspect some team like Pittsburgh or possibly New Orleans, could take a flier of the talented, but enigmatic former Florida State star.  My best guess it that Sean Payton will give it a whirl at trying to fix the broken Winston.

Robby Anderson – WR

  • 2019 team: New York Jets

The 27-year-old Anderson has recorded three straight seasons of at least 752 receiving yards with at least five touchdowns. Anderson also had an impressive 27 catches for 420 yards over the Jets’ final six games last season. Anderson isn’t signed yet and he had better in a hurry seeing as how the wide receiver position is one of the deepest in the 2020 NFL draft. Anderson is looking for $10 million a year, but I’m thinking more like $8 million is what he’ll get – from the Miami Dolphins.

Breshad Perriman – WR

  • 2019 team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The 26-year-old Perriman had 36 catches for 645 yards and six touchdowns in what was a career year for the former first round draft pick in 2015. He’s facing a bunch of competition from the upcoming draft, but he’ll get signed soon enough if his asking price are reasonable. I’m predicting the veteran will end up either in Houston or Philadelphia.

Markus Golden – LB

  • 2019 team: New York Giants

After racking up an impressive 10 sacks while playing for the woeful Giants last season, Golden should have been off the free agent board by now for any team in need of a pass rusher. Lest anyone forget, Golden, a second round pick in 2015, also recorded a stunning 12.5 sacks in his second season in the league with Arizona back in 2016. Golden is testing the free agent waters, but the Giants need him in the worst way and I suspect they’ll come close to giving him what he’s asking for in order to retain his services.

Jason Peters, OT

  • 2019 team: Philadelphia Eagles | Age: 38

At his age, Peters is a year-to-year proposition. But after he played in 29 of a possible 32 games over the past two seasons, there is a reason to think he could squeeze out at least one more quality season. Even if his best years are long behind him, starting left tackles of any quality generate intense interest.

Ndamukong Suh, DT

  • 2019 team: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Arguably the most feared defensive player in the league at one point in his career, Suh is now 33-years-old as he looks for what will likely be his last NFL contract (I guess). Suh has suited up for three different teams the last three seasons, but he was relatively productive for Tampa Bay last season by recording 41 tackles, 7 tackles for loss and four fumble recoveries, two of which went for touchdowns. Suh is also always available, having played in a whopping 131 consecutive games dating back to his second season in the league in 2011.

Remaining unsigned free agent Quarterbacks

Joe Flacco

Multiple teams are reportedly interested in Flacco (why?) after he went a pitiful 2-6 for Denver last season while tossing six TD passes and five interceptions. Stay tuned as Flacco deals with injury issues the past two seasons after not missing a game in his first 10 years in the league.

The Rest

Blake Bortles, Mike Glennon, Brett Hundley, Josh McCown, Trevor Siemian
