With NFL free agency starting on March 11, several teams will be interested in adding talent to their linebacker corps.

Whether it's a pass-rushing outside linebacker or a run-stuffing inside linebacker, the position holds a significant amount of value on a defense.

It's time to explore the linebacker market for the upcoming free-agency period.
