The NFL lockout last season screwed up the entire league offseason. Most notably, free agency turned from a long bidding process into a two-week rush to sign the best player at the highest price as soon as possible.
This season, free agency begins for the league March 13, a month and a half before the NFL Draft. What does this mean for teams? Roster needs can be fulfilled well before the draft. When teams go into their war rooms at the end of April, they will already have a great idea of what kind of team they are and what exactly they need to draft in order to complete the puzzle. Free agency will fix teams and the draft will be for the impact players.
This slideshow will take you through all 32 NFL franchises and list the free-agency needs of every team. Keeping in mind the draft comes after free agency begins, the needs for a team in the draft may not match those of their free agency.
Here now are the free-agency wish lists for all 32 NFL teams.
