Now for some disclaimers:
– The overall ratings only tell part of the story and feature no weighting for specific facets of play. For more in-depth analysis, sign up for our PFF Premium Statistics.
– All ratings and snap counts are from the 2013 regular season only and ratings between players of two different positions are not meant to be compared.
– Sorting players by position and ranking won’t necessarily get you the same order we’ve used in some of our articles. That’s because we’ve done more to put the numbers into context. The grades require intelligence applied to them.
– This list of players consists only of players who ended the season on a roster in 2013 and are scheduled to become free agents when the 2014 league year begins, or players who have been released during the offseason; players that are exclusive rights free agents are not included.
– Player ages are as of September 1, 2014.
– If you spot any errors please contact Gordon McGuinness on twitter and he’ll set about fixing it.
