NFL free agency 2022: Ranking the best remaining free agents still available on the market

Even after all the NFL free agency moves we've seen so far, there is a pretty substantial list of talented players still available.

What follows is the remnant of ESPN's original top 100 free agents. The list includes players whose contracts expired or voided, or whose deals were terminated early because of salary-cap or performance issues. It does not cover restricted or exclusive free agents, for whom the original teams have the right of first refusal. Players who have received the franchise tag are also excluded, even though they technically could be acquired in exchange for two first-round draft choices and the consent of the original team.

As always, our ranking is skewed toward players coming off their first contracts -- at the free-agent sweet spot of about 26 years old -- and takes into consideration that some positions are much more valued on the open market than others. Pass-rushers and quarterbacks are more sought after on the market than running backs and off-ball linebackers, at least for most teams, and we've tried to keep that in mind in establishing the rankings.

Let's jump in, with the best available players still unsigned. Who's next to join a new team?
