With NFL free agency beginning in less than two weeks, here is one free-agent signing every team should make based on which players would be ideal fits for each franchise.

A team's projected cap space, needs and potential scheme fits were weighed. Some of these players could be slapped with the franchise tag before free agency begins. Ages for players are when the 2019 season begins.

Buffalo Bills: OT Trent Brown

2018 team: Patriots | Age: 26

Over the past two seasons, at right tackle for the 49ers in 2017 and at left tackle for the Patriots in 2018, Brown has given up only 51 total pressures on 995 pass-blocking snaps. That pressure rate of 5.1 percent not only puts him among the top 20 tackles in that span, but it's tied with Andrew Whitworth and Bryan Bulaga, who are two of the league's best at the position. With Jordan Mills set to face free agency, Brown has the potential to shore things up on the Bills' offensive line.

Miami Dolphins: QB Teddy Bridgewater

2018 team: Saints | Age: 26

Bridgewater didn't get any real playing time in the 2018 regular season, but he did light up the preseason to the tune of an 80.9 overall grade, which ranked eighth out of 94 qualifying quarterbacks. He showed enough to prove that he's over his leg injury and can still become a great quarterback in the NFL. The last time he had significant regular-season action was in 2015, when he finished with the 12th-best passer rating when kept clean (102.5) out of 38 qualifying quarterbacks. If he can reach his pre-injury form, the Dolphins would have a quarterback with loads of potential.
