This year's free-agent class is one of the strongest on both sides of the ball in recent memory. Talented offensive and defensive players are in abundance this year, and every team in the NFL needs some help.
Free agency will open on March 13th at 4:00 p.m. ET, and since only a few big names have been franchised, this could be shaping up to be one of the craziest offseasons ever.
With the franchise tag deadline looming on March 5th, many big-name defensive players will be hitting the open market, entertaining offers from different suitors.
There are 10 players on the defensive side of the ball who have set themselves apart from the crowd. This group of players will be chased by many NFL teams, and it is sure to be a wild next few weeks.
