After a busy first day of NFL free agency, theScore offers you a roundup of all the best players still available. Some of the biggest names remain up for grabs and a handful of teams have the cap space to sign anyone.

Mike Glennon was able to take advantage of the weak quarterback market, scoring a three-year deal worth $14.5 million per season, but his competition appears to be playing the waiting game. With Tony Romo’s departure from Dallas coming soon, anyone looking to be a potential starter could be best off holding on until that domino falls.

Peterson’s interest in joining a new team are much higher than teams’ interest in him. With Danny Woodhead being the only semi-major running back to sign on Day 1, Lacy seems to be the closest to finding a new landing spot with a trio of visits upcoming over the weekend.

Aside from Pryor, the league’s top pass-catching free agents didn’t wait long to find new homes as Alshon Jeffery went to the Eagles, DeSean Jackson joined the Buccaneers, and Pierre Garcon jetted off to San Francisco. Pryor may now be the most attractive remaining free agent available, regardless of position.

Tight Ends

Any team looking to upgrade its tight end position has slim pickings to chose from this offseason, but pretty much all the options are still available.

Offensive Linemen

Offensive linemen were among the winners of the first day of free agency as Kevin Zeitler, Andrew Whitworth, Riley Reiff, Russell Okung, Ricky Wagner, and Matt Kalil all landed monster contracts.


Defensive Ends/EDGE

This year’s edge rusher crop is fairly weak, with the best available names having already passed their primes. The Eagles’ release of Barwin on Thursday added one more over-30 veteran to the crew of complementary pieces.

Defensive Tackles

Brandon Williams became the NFL’s highest-paid nose tackle Thursday night, setting the stage for Poe, Hankins, and Logan to get big deals with teams hoping to improve their run defense soon.

The market for Hightower may not have been as high as he was hoping for as the Super Bowl champion was unable to land with a team right out of the gate. After Hightower, there’s little available in the immediate impact category at linebacker; it could be a while until some of these players find new homes.

Defensive Backs

The cream of the defensive back crop – A.J. Bouye, Tony Jefferson, and Stephon Gilmore – found their new homes quickly, which should allow for the remaining talent to come off the board soon, giving various teams No. 2 corners, nickel backs, and complementary safeties.
