NFL free agency will soon be upon us. There’s a whole heck of a lot of money set to be thrown around this year. It really is a perfect storm for free agents to receive huge paydays while teams themselves overspend.
The backdrop here is also real. Just how will teams use the trade block as an alternative to free agency? Names included here could include Kirk Cousins, Tony Romo, Sheldon Richardson and even Brandon Marshall.
All the while, certain players wait for the franchise tag to be handed to them. Will Cousins remain with the Washington Redskins, even after he’s tendered? Kansas City Chiefs All Pro safety Eric Berry has indicated he will not sign his tender. How will that play out?
These are among the top-10 storylines for NFL free agency.
