The 2014 NFL free agency period officially commenced on March 11, and several marquee players have already reached contract agreements with their previous teams or new suitors.
With a number of teams having plenty of money to spend and the league salary cap at $133 million, several more of high-profile moves should be made in the coming days and weeks.
That cap figure is approximately $10 million more per team than in 2013, which should give way to even more parity and allow franchises that may not be marketable free-agent destinations to become more attractive. Money talks, after all.
One factor that threatens to diminish the hype surrounding the open market is the depth of the upcoming draft class. With the value that even second- and third-round picks will have, front offices may be focused on acquiring three or more potential core players in May than patching up their rosters with a free-agent spending spree.
Nevertheless, there is enough star power out there and a lot of capable veterans who should make free agency compelling—whether they seek new NFL destinations or massive extensions from their current clubs.
