The waiting game can be a difficult one for veteran NFL free agents.
Just ask retired safety Matt Bowen and current free agent Geoff Schwartz, who remains unsigned despite the market opening more than two weeks ago. The pair put together an informative back-and-forth on the process for ESPN.
"When the money dries up and the market slows, the common man of the NFL just hopes for another shot, another opportunity to play some ball," Bowen wrote. "I've been there, and former Giants offensive guard Geoff Schwartz is in that situation right now."
Schwartz, who was released by the New York Giants, is waiting for the call.
"There's plenty of time left," Schwartz wrote. "I'm going to sit tight, keep working out, keep getting myself stronger and be ready to go when the call comes. There will be a call. I'm too good of a player for there not to be."
Schwartz isn't alone. A number of big names are still available as the calendar creeps closer and closer to April.
In the following slides, we will take a stab at predicting the future for a few of these top players.
