Back on March 12, the NFL’s 2013 league year began and the free-agency period opened with a flurry of activity. Almost 17 weeks later, there are few certainties pertaining to the remaining players that are ready, willing and able to play in 2013 but are not on a roster.
It’s a buyer’s market, as teams are now less than a month away from the start of training camp. Most teams have already spent the majority of the money they’re going to spend this offseason and have filled out their depth charts.
There still are, however, a number of quality veterans out there in the free-agent pool. The key to their success in signing somewhere this late in the offseason is price and availability. There will be situations (read: injury or other roster openings) that require a team to grab one of these veterans at some point prior to Week 1. As long as these remaining free agents stay as close to game shape as possible and are willing to accept the reduced rate of pay that is like to be given to free agents in June, job offers will be handed out.
