1 Free-Agent Decision Every NFL Team Will Come to Regret
USA TODAY Sports
The next time you see wide receiver Steve Smith he will be in Baltimore Ravens uniform.

It’s getting closer.

On Wednesday afternoon (March 9), the league released its 2014 preseason schedule. Now comes Thursday morning at which we are 28 days away from the NFL draft.

Those are the good things for football fans everywhere.

Then there is the reality. Building a championship football team in the NFL is a tough business.

Face it, each of the 32 organizations attempt to do what is best for its club, and often and those moves can come with a great deal of angst. Decisions often times must trump sentimentality. There are the economics of a salary cap and the dynamics of a locker room.

There’s also that “man…that just doesn’t feel right.”

We will be taking all of the aforementioned factors into account, but that latter aspect is what we will be dealing with for the most part. We will take a look at one free-agent decision made by each of the 32 teams and why they could be second-guessing that move sometime in the future.

Be it a big-time signing or a key departure, we’ll pinpoint one potential move that might come back to bite a team in the proverbial backfield.

Regrets? Every team will have a few. But to be frank, they have to do it their way.
