The 2014 NFL free-agent period might be nearly two weeks old, but a number of excellent players remain available, and it's time to explore the best fits for those remaining athletes.
While the first wave of free agency crashed down in thunderous and spectacular fashion, the next wave is just as important. Last year, players like Elvis Dumervil (Baltimore), Daryl Smith (Baltimore), John Abraham (Arizona), Dwight Freeney (San Diego), Karlos Dansby (Arizona) and Brent Grimes (Miami) were all snatched up on the less-ballyhooed second wave.
The players and teams on this list were married to each other for a cornucopia of rationale.
Of paramount importance is the on-field fit. Can the player make an immediate impact on his new team and help to win a few games?
Also vital is exploring the team's depth chart at the position. Some franchises need help at certain positions like Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding need your love.
Finally, convenience plays a large role as well. Sometimes, the best fit for a player is the same place he spent the previous season or seasons.
The players themselves were chosen because they are eight potential difference-makers. Mark Sanchez is now the best quarterback on the market, and the others are all capable of making a large impact in 2014 and beyond.
Here are the best fits for the top eight remaining players in 2014 NFL free agency.
