If the first two months of the 2018 NFL offseason are any indication, expect the action to be dizzying when the new league year begins at 4 p.m. That's when free agents can begin signing contracts and trades that have been consummated become official.
Meanwhile, teams and agents can begin negotiating agreements Monday although no contracts can be signed until after 4 p.m. But please, everyone, cease referring to it as legal tampering. Following is The Sports Xchange's top 75 free agents.
Just don't expect Saints quarterback Drew Brees actually to be available. FFA are franchise players, TFA transition player and RFA restricted free agents.
Below the elite 75 are our free-agent rankings by position with players in the top 75 in bold.
