Football Flea Market: A Guide To The NFL's Top 2015 Free Agents
Okay so after all the Super Bowl excitement, happiness, anger or resignation that we may have felt, it's NFL free agents time.
When you are a big fan of a team, this means everything. You keep track of them on social media, read news about them and cherish your hoodie or shirt with the name of your favorite player.
But, when you find out those players are free agents, something inside you dies and you begin to question your existence.
You can also be completely indifferent toward other players or glad that finally, some of them are in the tightrope and cross your fingers that no team will want them.
Obviously, you may hate a certain team but as a mature person, you still recognize the talent of other players, so you may also be eyeing someone who could be a perfect fit for your team.
Either way, here are some players, by team, who are now in the crosshairs:
Brian Hoyer – Quarterback
I don't know about you, but Hoyer helped me at least once or twice in my fantasy, so I have a bit of affection for him.
Dez Bryant – Wide Receiver
DeMarco Murray — Running Back
These guys have proved in the field what they are capable of doing. Both would be great additions to other teams.
Demaryius Thomas — Wide Receiver
Wes Welker – Wide Receiver
After seeing his old team win the Super Bowl, it's safe to say Wes Welker is not happy and may be looking for a change of scenery.
No team wants to lose two wide receivers at once, so it'll be interesting to see how the Broncos compensate.
New England Patriots
Darrelle Revis - Cornerback
Stephen Gostkowski — Kicker
Shane Vereen – Running Back
Stevan Ridley – Running Back
The Super Bowl win may be a little bittersweet now since the Patriots have so many free agents.
And, if they want to keep most of them, it will be an expensive bill.
New York Jets
Michael Vick – Quarterback
Michael Vick has had better seasons and honestly, after all the legal stuff he went through, there weren't high expectations for him. But, when he returned, he showed everyone that he still was an amazing QB.
Perhaps if the Jets give him another chance he will prove himself again.
Mark Sanchez — Quarterback
Okay Marky Mark, as much as we love you, we have to accept that this season, your interceptions were out of control. But, we are hoping that you will surprise us next season.
Byron Maxwell — Cornerback
This one will be greatly missed if the team doesn't keep him.
Well, all we can do now is have patience and hold out hope that our favorite players stay with their teams or go to better ones.
But, if we really are fans, it doesn't matter where these guys play. All the players have unique characteristics and abilities and we must hope that they will develop even more throughout every new season.
It is important to know the new, promising players because you may be surprised by how qualified they are. For example, SB XLIX had an impressive turn of tables from rookie Malcolm Butler.
