Your One-Stop Shop for Free Agency

| March 8, 2012

Peyton Manning has made his decision, the list of free agents available is dwindling and teams are starting to look for depth and value signings. Here at Pro Football Focus we are providing you with a one stop shop for all you need to know about free agency.

All 32 NFL teams have areas of need that they are attempting to shore up through A) bringing their own free agents back, B) snagging quality players cut loose by other teams, or C) loading up on young talent in the draft.

Team Needs

In this past couple of weeks, we’ve brought you team-by-team thoughts as to which areas each could stand to improve most and we’ve offered a handful of free agent fits they might consider. Naturally, some teams are better off than others, but all have their yearly offseason work to do to account for expiring contracts, unfortunate injuries, and under-performing players or units. And, even if most things appeared to be in order for some, “if you’re not getting better, you’re getting worse”, right? (… or was that “if you ain’t first, you’re last.”??) Check out our notes for your team and your favorite rivals as we head into the 2012 free agency period:
