The 2021 NFL season is behind us, and we're starting to gear up for an offseason of retooling for all 32 teams. Free agency is set to begin on March 16, and teams are taking deep looks at their current rosters and who might be available on the open market.
As we start to think about who could land where, we looked at some the best fits for the top free agents primed to be available in March. Who can help fill a team's biggest need? Who makes sense in a particular team's offensive or defensive scheme? Who has ties to certain coaches and franchises? And who is best set up to stay put?
We used our colleague Kevin Seifert's top-50 free agent rankings from a few weeks ago and placed each player with the team that makes the most sense. We analyzed rosters, made calls to league personnel and mapped out the best fits for the best players available. We begin with an intriguing landing spot for arguably the best free agent in a long time -- should he make it to free agency. Here are our thoughts on each player's ideal team come March.
