    The 2019 edition of NFL The free agency is around the corner because teams can start contacting free agents on March 11th.

    Free Agency gives teams the ability to upgrade quickly, but paying too much to upgrade to a particular job can be a problem for a player who does not meet his expectations.

    Here we will describe the best potential offer for each position. The following players all have the potential to substantially outperform their contracts due to undervalued transactions, untapped potential, or a high risk / return factor.

    The focus will also be on current market values, although some of this year's larger contracts will look like bargains in two or three years because of the inflated salary cap.

    Teams looking for a starting solution at quarterback will not have many options regarding free agencies this season off. MVP of the Super Bowl Nick Foles and Teddy Bridgewater, the first player in 2014, are at the top of the list, but both could be expensive.

    This will probably not be the case with Tyrod Taylor.

    After briefly starting for the Cleveland Browns in 2018, Taylor may have to recover as a starting quarterback. A team that needs a quarter might be able to convince them to sign a short-term contract, which is much cheaper than two-year contract worth $ 36 million Case Keenum had the last off-season season of the Denver Broncos.

    If Taylor managed to replicate his 2015 Pro Bowl campaign – in which he had 3035 yards, 568 yards and 24 touchdowns – he would do a huge deal.

    Demis should not hold much of the attention of free agencies this year. The job is relatively easy to complete with the repechage and, aside from the remarkable New Orleans Saints player, Mark Ingram, the defensemen are few.

    Saving Spencer Ware by the Kansas City Chiefs could be one of the few exceptions.

    In 2016, Ware racked up 921 yards, added 447 yards and scored a total of five touchdowns in 14 games as a starter. Last season, he served mainly as a catcher – with a quick two-game spell as a starter – and caught 20 passes for 224 yards.

    As Ware is injured at the end of 2018 and missed the 2017 season because of a ripped PCL, he could be forced to accept a one – year contract. At just 27 years old, it could prove to be a valuable piece in the long run.

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver, Tyrell Williams, aspires to be the best goaltender. At 6 "4" and 205 pounds, it seems part.

    "I really feel like I'm a No. 1 receiver," said Williams at the end of January, per Eric D. Williams from Parlay Game. "So, I want to make sure that I clean up all the little things along the way and blocking them to make sure to consolidate myself as # 1."

    Williams' best season was in 2016, when he caught 69 passes for 1,059 yards and seven touchdowns. He has all the skills to be a favorite man even though he has not played this role in the past two seasons.

    Although Williams gets a huge deal on the open market, it will probably be well below what a top-notch # 1 or # 2 receiver normally earns. If he's getting a contract similar to what Mohamed Sanu or Marvin Jones got as free agents in 2016, he should not be long in surpassing him.

    Tyler Eifert is an interesting option in free agents. His potential is huge – he has participated in 13 receptions and participated in the Pro Bowl in 2015 – but injuries have bothered him in recent years.

    Eifert has never played a full 16-game season and has only played 14 games in the last three years. A broken ankle cut his 2018 campaign after four games, although he recently released a workout video showing impressive progress in her rehabilitation.

    If Eifert can not stay healthy, he could be one of the biggest busts in this class of free agents. If it does, however, it could be one of its biggest thefts.

    Eifert is a real risk-reward option, but the reward side makes it a potentially huge boon.

    Now that Greg Robinson is out of the marketThe chances of a team finding a young and long-term solution in search of a good deal are slim. On the same subject, Ja 'Waun James, one of Miami's Dolphins, is about to break his piggy bank.

    Teams that do not hesitate to sign a player with a few miles on the proverbial odometer are lucky, though.

    Ty Nsekhe, the replacement for Washington Redskins, is a novice forward for many teams that do not have Morgan Moses and Trent Williams in reserve.

    The 33-year-old is also an attractive option because of his ability to replace the goalkeeper if necessary. Nsekhe made three starts in the draw and two in the Redskins guard in 2018.

    Although James can tap close to $ 10 million per season in the open market, Nsekhe should receive something closer to the market. $ 2.9 million contract one year he played under in 2018.

    For the linemen, the Denver Broncos center, Matt Paradis, seems to be the cream of the expected crop.

    Jason Fitzgerald from Over the Cap predicted it would land a market of about 10 to 11 million dollars a year. Fitzgerald also predicted that the Kansas City Chiefs' Center, Mitch Morse, would cost about $ 3 million less per season.

    Seeing that Morse has become one of the best pass-stop centers in the league, it would make him a bargain by comparison.

    Morse missed five games in 2018 and nine games the previous season, raising fears for its durability. However, such risks often lead to great value.

    A team can probably convince Morse to reach an agreement based largely on incentives to play. If he stays healthy, he could be one of the most offensive offensive online signatures.

    The New England Patriots sent out a 2019 third-round pick at the last Cleveland Browns offseason in exchange for defensive tackle Danny Shelton and a fifth round pick in 2018. Shelton quickly rewarded them with an excellent season as that player by rotation.

    His impact on the defensive front of New England was far more important than the 21 tackles he recorded.

    Shelton is a space eater and a lineman, and he can help a team looking to fill the noseplate job. His 2015 first-round pick status and defending champion could help him land a heavy contract, but he will likely be a lot cheaper than, say, Ndamukong Suh.

    At just 25, Shelton is in its heyday. So, no matter who wins it, they will be able to benefit from it for years to come.

    The class of free agents this year is not lacking for the pass-rushers, although Jadeveon Clowney and Lawrence Demarcus are not likely to hit the free market.

    For teams looking for a ferryman, Terrell Suggs linebacker Baltimore Ravens could be a good deal.

    While Suggs wishes to return to Baltimore, he intends to play elsewhere if the Ravens are not interested in bringing him back.

    "I would like to be a Raven for life," he said. told reporters in January. "… hope we can get there, but otherwise, you know, I'll be lining up for someone sometime next year."

    If the Ravens do not sign Suggs again, it will likely be a short-term hiring for a competitor. After harvesting 18 bags of sacks in the last two seasons, the 36-year-old could sign a contract lower than the market to pursue another ring.

    As for the off-ball linebackers, C.J. Mosley is at the top of this year's free agents category. However, the Ravens are thinking of using the franchise label on it if they fail to reach a deal on a long-term contract.

    This leaves a big gap between Mosley and the players that will actually be available.

    Instead of paying too much to add a second-line linebacker, the teams should instead consider adding Vincent Rey.

    While the 31-year-old has not played a significant role for Cincinnati in 2018, he has been productive when he's seen offering many opportunities in the past. In 2017, for example, he has accumulated 85 tackles in 14 games.

    Rey can be a first class linebacker for a team in need. It should not cost much more than the $ 3.5 million a year he concluded his last contract either, which made it a formidable potential market.

    Morris Claiborne, Jason McCourty, E.J. Gaines and Buster Skrine are likely to retire before Pierre Desir.

    Desire has emerged only recently as a corner-caliber midfielder for the Indianapolis Colts, which is why his contract is lower than the market value for a starter.

    However, Desire has become a strong advocate who deserves to start. It has the physical tools of an upscale outdoor corner, including a 6 '1 "long frame, and brings the physiognomy and vision to the field of a preliminary choice.

    Looking at Cinema Desire, you'd have a hard time guessing it was coming from Lindenwood University.

    Because of his relatively low profile and small school status, Desir will likely be underestimated financially. In turn, a team should be able to sign it for a bargaining agreement.

    Security is one of the deepest positions in this year's free agent class, at least at the top. Earl Thomas, Lamarcus Joyner and Tyrann Mathieu will not fail to attract their attention when the market opens.

    However, Adrian Phillips, responsible for the safety of the shippers, could well beat them as the best deal.

    Phillips just finished a Pro Bowl campaign, so he'll probably have a big raise after signing a one-year contract, $ 1.5 million last season However, he should fall into the second level of security contracts.

    The potential of Phillips is huge. He plays the race as well as any defensive back – he often lines up with the linebacker – and he can also get by in the pass cover. Teams looking for a hybrid defender similar to Mark Barron could hit hard by getting him signed.

    Last season, Phillips had 94 tackles, nine defensive passes, an interception and a forced fumble. It could be even more productive in 2019.

    Jason Jason Jets kicker Jason Myers competed in the Pro Bowl in 2018, which will certainly boost his appeal as an independent player.

    But with well-known names such as Stephen Gostkowski, Wil Lutz and Robbie Gould also on the market, Myers may well be one of the most affordable options.

    Myers was much less reliable in his three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars than in his first campaign with the Jets. But if he can continue to build on the success that he has had in 2018 (91.7% of his placement attempts and five passes over 55 meters), he will be a tremendous asset to a needy team .
