Here are the best NFL free agents for 2015, according to NFL.com
We're officially one week away from free agency.
At 4 p.m. ET on March 10, the gates open as the new league year officially begins. Shortly after, the first wave of contracts will be signed, and 2015 rosters will start to take shape.
NFL.com sorted through all the players set to hit the market and ranked the top upcoming free agents. Leading the much-anticipated period is Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, whom Detroit did not tag as the deadline to designate a franchise player expired on Monday.
"Outside of quarterbacks and the two unanimous All-Pros (J.J. Watt, Rob Gronkowski), Suh and Odell Beckham are the two unique talents around whom we would most like to build a franchise," NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal and Chris Wesseling wrote. "A double-team defeater against the run as well as the pass, Suh is on a Hall-of-Fame career path. Suh is likely to hit free agency after the Lions chose not to use the franchise tag on him."
Below is a look at the top 10 free agents according to NFL.com. Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was originally No. 5 on this list before the team yesterday designated him as its franchise player.
