2014 NFL Free-Agent Signings: Ranking the Top 50 Adds from 1st Week
Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports
Ware did DeMarcus wind up? With the Denver Broncos, of course.

Traditionally, on the day after Thanksgiving, many people participate in the nationwide shopping phenomenon known as Black Friday.

We’ll call this “Tantalizing Tuesday.”

Back on March 11, the fiscal year for the NFL’s 95th season began in earnest (although no one named Earnest was actually signed).

So over the past five days, teams around the league have been trimming their rosters and adding some new blood at the same time.

Hence, here are our rankings for the top 50 additions via the NFL’s shopping phenomenon known as “free agency.”

These rankings don’t include trades. So if you’re looking for the Philadelphia Eagles’ much-discussed acquisition of running back Darren Sproles from the New Orleans Saints and/or the San Francisco 49ers’ additions of tackle Jonathan Martin and quarterback Blaine Gabbert, that’s a discussion and slideshow for another time.

A combination of team need, value, experience and production were the major factors in deciding No. 50 to numero uno.
