The last few days have seen a lot of free agent movement across the NFL. But with the new league year set to start in just a few hours there are still a ton of big names that remain unsigned.
Ahead of the official start to free agency later today, ESPN’s Field Yates posted a list of some remaining available players. And it’s about as impressive of a list as we’ve seen in years of free agency coverage.
Pro Bowl wide receivers such as Kenny Golladay, Antonio Brown and JuJu Smith-Schuster, along with Curtis Samuel and Will Fuller are still without a team. Pass rushers such as Jadeveon Clowney, Haason Reddick and Kyle Van Noy also remain unsigned.
Several Pro Bowl cornerbacks remain available as well. Richard Sherman, Patrick Peterson and Malcolm Butler are all there for the taking.
Available FA's include:

That isn’t to say that there hasn’t been significant movement in free agency during the “legal tampering period.”
Quarterbacks, top offensive linemen, pass rushers and especially tight ends have all found new homes in the past few days. And that isn’t even taking into account reports of impending cuts and potential trades.
The 2021 free agency period may not have a franchise-changing player like Tom Brady or Peyton Manning out there. But the fortunes of a few NFL teams can potentially change dramatically with a few savvy signings.
Who will be the best free agent acquisition when all is said and done?
