Ranking The Five Best Available NFL Free Agents

The NFL regular season is just weeks away, and with so many potential contenders in 2022, this may be one of the most intriguing, unpredictable and exciting NFL seasons in recent times. The off-season was just as wild, as we saw the likes of Tyreek Hill, Khalil Mack, Russell Wilson and Davante Adams all get traded, Tom Brady came out of retirement, plenty of unfortunate drama and a stacked draft class, and finally, after all that, it's nearly time once again for football.

Unless you are one of the remaining free agents, who, for one reason or another have yet to find a team, but with so many injuries and potential suspensions, it's only a matter of time until we see more movement. Regardless, here are the 5 best NFL players who are currently without a team, just mere weeks away from the beginning of the 2022/23 football season.

Odell Beckham Jr.

Odell Beckham has been one of the most spectacular receivers in the NFL since his arrival in 2014 with that ridiculous catch against the Cowboys, and while there's been plenty of drama along the way, when healthy, OBJ has been very, very productive. After a slow start in 2021 with the Cleveland Browns, Beckham went off to the LA Rams, and although he was injured early in the Super Bowl, he was a huge help to this team down the stretch, and they may not have been there if not for him.

Unfortunately for Odell, his injury will make sure that he's not available for the beginning of the season, but when he does get healthy, there's no reason for any playoff team not to call him. Baltimore, Arizona, San Francisco and a few other teams could use his services, and while he may not be signed before the season begins, expect that once he's healthy, a bidding war for his services will ensue. 

Kevin King

Kevin King has been an up and down player throughout his time in the NFL, mainly due to injury, but when healthy, he's capable of being a starter in the league, although certainly not a No. 1 shutdown corner. So many teams in the NFL right now have questionable depth at the cornerback spot, and King being a 6-3 corner with plenty of range and physicality is a great fit for most of them, even if his injury history could be concerning.

If a team looks at King, they aren't looking to pay $15 million to a starter, they'll be looking mainly for depth and someone who can start in case an injury bug hits the team, so expect him to be picked up in the coming weeks.  

Eric Fisher

Duane Brown was the No. 1 tackle left on the board, but after the Jets scooped him up, it figures to be only a matter of time until Eric Fisher, the former No. 1 overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs finds a new home, one full season removed from a devastating injury. He returned in 2021 for the Colts, and ended up starting 15 games in protection of Carson Wentz, and one team that does make sense for Fisher is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who can't seem to take a trick this off-season when it comes to the health of their offensive linemen.

Tom Brady is getting up there in age, and needs the best protection possible, and if Fisher is looking for a huge payday, this might not be the spot for him, but if he wants the chance to compete for a Super Bowl, this seems like a great match.

Ndamukong Suh

Speaking of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Ndamukong Sun is a name that started the majority of the season for them in 2021, and although he's not the wrecking ball that Detroit Lions fans will remember, he's still a physical presence and would be a huge help to any team looking to make a genuine playoff run in 2021. The asking price for Suh's services in 2022 is reportedly $9 million, and while that may seem like a lot, it's very likely that a team will get desperate enough in the coming months to bring him into the fold, but it may not happen until a major injury occurs. 

Suh has been a very productive player throughout his career, and although it's coming to an end, he can still contribute to a team in 2022, and it's likely that we'll be seeing this physical specimen hunting down QB as the playoffs roll on once more in 2022. 

Will Fuller

Will Fuller is one of the more talented receivers in the NFL, but unfortunately for him, he's struggled to stay out of trouble and healthy throughout his time in the NFL. In 5 years with the Houston Texans, Fuller was quite predictive, putting up over 3,000 yards and 24 Touchdown's, but after an injury kept him to just 4 games in 2021, it's safe to say that any team who signs him will need to be prepared for buyers remorse.

The Ravens desperately need talent on the outside, as Lamar Jackson's favourite receiver was traded this off-season, and for a low cost, potentially high reward option, Fuller is perfect for this team, as he could stay on the field and give Jackson a great option to go along with a strong running back group and Mark Andrews.
