  1. Dumb list – Fisher wont be playing next year, Clowney is good for 4 games a year, and Schwartz has a serious BACK injury

  2. Clowney not only makes the list but is the 4th ranked remaining free agent, but somehow Suh is no where to be found? Ok, Clowney with a total of 3 sacks and only 21 games played over the last 2 seasons. Compared to Suh coming off a 6 sack season plus 1.5 in playoffs and hasn’t missed a game since 2011. Makes sense…..

  3. Is it safe to assume that every one of these players are seeking more money than anyone is willing to pay at this point?
    I suppose a few of them are being strategic and are resisting offers in order to miss training camp. The rest are probably looking for money that’s not available.

  4. I always liked the way ryan Kerrigan plays and carries himself. It’d be cool if he somehow ended up in Philly.

  5. 26 players from your top 💯 were left & you decided just to list 25? I remember Suh was your original 100th, so I thought I would point that out to those wondering where he went. According to PFT, He’s #26.

    I’m not convinced your ranking order remains valid, but Cap Space & “team need” will play the biggest challenge to getting signed. Those signing before the draft won’t likely get anything other than a one year low-mid $ contract.

  6. Anthony Walker for LB in Philly. We don’t have any LBs….Parsons or Pitts ? Defense or Offense…key pieces need to be filled on an old team.

    I do like the Florida TE as a hybrid te/wr 🙂

    Pittsburgh made it work with their guy…made our philly 2ndary look stupid.

  7. What sucker team overpays Jadeveon Clowney this year?
    For a run stuffer who occasionally pressures the QB he’s made a ton of money.

  8. Hard to believe K’Wuan Williams is not on this list. Best nickel back in the NFL.

  9. Schwartz and Fisher won’t be ready to play next season. Why are they even listed, let alone at #1 and #5 ahead of healthy players?

  10. Lots of familiar names and probably lots of one year deals in the future for most of them.

  11. Interesting how this list is dominated by defensive players. Flashy offense sells tickets. Defense wins championships.
