As the NFL offseason marches closer toward the NFL Draft, the buzz behind the free agency period has died down. That said, there are still teams who are looking to inquire about the services of an NFL veteran, and here are some of the best remaining free agents.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB
The former New York Jets quarterback and NFL journeyman remains to be signed after apparent contract disputes between him and the Jets. Fitzpatrick threw for 3,905 yards, 31 touchdowns and only 15 interceptions en route to the Jets 10-6 season in 2015.
Teams that remain in the market for a quarterback, such as the Los Angeles Rams and Denver Broncos, might look at Fitzpatrick as an option. The only road block continues to be the number at which Fitzpatrick is supposedly asking, the reason the Jets and the quarterback remain so far apart.
Anquan Boldin, WR
The former Baltimore Raven and San Francisco 49er remains on the market after more than a month, most likely because of the receiver’s age. Boldin will turn 36 this upcoming season, and after a year where production didn’t quite match his previous years, it’s not a surprise the receiver hasn’t garnered a lot of attention. That said, the receiver is going to make some team incredibly happy in 2016.
Despite being in San Francisco’s shaky passing attack, Boldin manage to reel in 69 catches for 789 yards and four touchdowns in 2015. And with his physicality and sure-handed playmaking ability, Boldin won’t still be on the market for long.
