Money is going to fly around NFL free agency this coming offseason like nothing we’ve seen in the history of the league. The league set its projected cap at roughly $190 million for the 2019 season — an increase of 40 percent since 2014 and $13 million from this season.

This means a whole plethora of teams will be in the bidding for the best available free agents. Among those, about 10 are expected to have $60-plus million to dole out once March comes calling.

It’s in this that we check in on 10 pending NFL free agents and others set for extensions who will cash in big time because of this projected salary cap hike.
