2014 NFL Free Agents: Exploring the Tight End Market
Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports
This is Jeff Cumberland of the New York Jets. Were you expecting to see Jimmy Graham?

With the free-agency period less than three weeks away, things are about to get interesting around the entire NFL.

For our purposes here, we will be focusing on just one position when it comes to the potential open market.

Here’s a look at the top tight ends around the league who might be available for hire come March 11.

As we found out this week, one of those performers is no longer on anyone’s short list as Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was suspended indefinitely by the league on Wednesday, per Dan Hanzus of NFL.com.

We will also take a pass for now on New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow, who has his own off-the-field issues to deal with as documented by A.J. Perez of NJ.com in January.

But those are subjects for another time. Here we will take a look at who figures to be on the field in 2014, and we will employ some help to do so via the following sites.

  • Spotrac (subscription required) provides us with a comprehensive list of tight ends that could become unrestricted free agents on March 11.
  • Joel Corry of CBS Sports lists the projected franchise tender totals for all positions in 2014.
  • Pro Football Focus (subscription required) ranks all NFL tight ends’ performances in 2013, including their work as both run and pass-blockers.

Should we expect the unexpected over the next few weeks when it comes to movement at the position? Only time will tell.
