There are still eight teams in the NFL hoping they have to make plans to play a game at MetLife Stadium in February for Super Bowl XLVIII.
Meanwhile, there are 24 other clubs making preparations for another football season come September.
The offseason is here for three quarters of the league, with those teams hoping to bolster their rosters via the draft or free agency.
Yes, free agency. It doesn’t actually begin until March 11, however, the performers we will discuss—all of whom could reap big dividends in free agency—could all very well wind up back with their own teams before the market even opens.
Then again, never say never in the big business of the NFL. The following 10 players, all capable playmakers, are listed first by offense and then by defense. There’s also one special teams standout who is certainly worth mentioning.
