As the 2022 free agency period quickly approaches, I look at building a full offense and defense with projected free agents set to hit the market

Every year, big-name free agents hit the open market in the NFL.  NFL free agency might be the most exciting time of the year for many.

Usually, teams are seen overpaying for some players, while others struggle to find the market they want.  With the potential of quite a few franchise-caliber quarterbacks wanting to change teams, the 2022 free agency period will be a dramatic one.

However, games go beyond the quarterback.  There are a plethora of high-quality free agents on both sides of the ball that deserve attention.

I wanted to have some fun with this piece, so what I’ve decided to do a build a full offense and defense using 2022 unrestricted free agents.

Twenty-two free agents will be picked to form the best possible starting offense and defense.

Looking at the free agents now, I think a solid team can be made on both sides of the ball.

So, let’s get started.

2022 NFL Free Agency Offense – Quarterback

Quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky

I’m going to take the potential for this one.  Trubisky, who was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 2017, could not settle their long-term quarterback answer.  With incompetent head coaching during his tenure, I think Trubisky gets another shot to start somewhere.

Trubisky isn’t going to wow anyone with Mahomes-ian like throws or Kyler Murray-like scrambles, but if in the right system, he can play well.

Some team is going to allow Mitchell Trubisky to compete for their starting job this season, and don’t be surprised if he is a week 1 starter for a team like Washington, Carolina, or Pittsburgh.
