2021 NFL free agency: 3 bold predictions before the frenzy begins
The 2021 NFL free-agent class is one full of many possibilities as a team will try to improve quickly by spending the big bucks.
The free agents during this offseason will consist of some of the biggest in the NFL. Players like Dak Prescott, Chris Godwin, Patrick Peterson, Larry Fitzgerald, and many more are currently scheduled to become free agents. Some of these players could still be re-signed by their respective teams before they can start negotiating with other franchises.
The NFL has become one where players change teams more often than other leagues but this is always an exciting time across the NFL. Players find their next contract and potentially new homes for their careers. Sometimes players leave on their own merit or because the team they play for just simply can’t afford them.
No matter the reason they leave, it is always an exciting time to see these players go to new homes and signing big contracts. Those contracts will either be great deals or complete busts based on the players’ output.
It is fun to predict what could happen as the salary cap is not moving the needle, so seeing how much will affect how teams go forward addressing free-agency will be interesting. Many have to get under the cap while other teams have money to spend. Even those with money to pay players might hesitate from revenue lost because of the pandemic. It is a very exciting time for football even though the offseason can be quiet at times, this should be anything but silent.
