Free agency is scheduled to start in early March, and it may not actually arrive until August or September.
When it does, we’ll see more player movement than any time in NFL history. So which teams have the most to lose?
ESPN.com’s Mike Sando does yeoman’s work breaking down the 508 projected unrestricted free agents by team and position.
The teams with the most expected UFAs include the Saints, Raiders, Seahawks, and Chargers. (New Orleans tops the list with 27 players, which isn’t a shock considering how many restricted free agents they had last year.)
The teams with the fewest unrestricted free agents include the Broncos, Bills, Cowboys, Dolphins, and Patriots. The AFC Champion Steelers are in the middle of the pack, while the Super Bowl champion Packers have the seventh-fewest expected UFAs.
It’s a handy list worth checking out. We just hope it’s not a list we break out again in August after hibernating for five months.
