Now that the Lockout is OFFICIALLY over (even though I won’t believe it until we see teams suiting up on Sundays!), it allows us to try to predict the chaos that will ensue within the next couple of days in the free agency market.
There are usually two types of free agents, one that is looking strictly for a big time contract and one that is looking to join a contender. I think any free agent will tell you they search for the ideal median, but sometimes they have to choose one or the other.
There are a variety of free agents that will fall into the two categories above. However, let’s take a look at six free agents that will most likely prefer to play for a contender or someone potentially on the bubble. Whether it’s one last hurrah for a Super Bowl ring, or just being sick and tired of being around mediocrity. A case can be made that each of the following players will keep their noses up for the best opportunity to succeed.
