2022 NFL free agency WRs 6-10
6. Michael Gallup, Dallas Cowboys
Injuries are a theme with this year’s top wide receivers, but if all of these guys can come back healthy in a reasonable timeline, they are going to be outstanding pickups on the open market.
With so much else to focus on, people have seen the Dallas Cowboys losing Michael Gallup for some time now.
Gallup has proven he can go somewhere else and likely absorb a much bigger role. Even with an injury impacting his 2021 season, I think Gallup will get a very good contract and a chance to be someone’s WR2 at worst.
7. Odell Beckham Jr., Los Angeles Rams
Beckham Jr. tore his ACL in the Super Bowl, which is horrendous timing, but he should still have plenty of teams ready to sign him in hopes he can help for a Super Bowl run next year.
Will he have to wait and pass a physical first? If that’s the case, we may not see OBJ sign until after the start of the 2022 season.
8. JuJu Smith-Schuster, Pittsburgh Steelers
Smith-Schuster looked like he was going to be the next great Steelers receiver in his first two years in the league. Over the last couple of seasons, though, he’s become something of an afterthought.
He nearly signed with the Chiefs last offseason and I think that fit still remains.
9. Will Fuller, Miami Dolphins
When healthy, Will Fuller is one of the most dangerous deep threats in the NFL.
Unfortunately, it feels like he’s about a 50-50 shot to actually play on a given week. He contributed nothing to the Dolphins in three games last season but he’s still just 27 going on 28 and will absolutely get another shot to succeed elsewhere in 2022.
10. Christian Kirk, Arizona Cardinals
The former second-round pick out of Texas A&M has been a very consistent player since coming into the league and he proved in 2021 that he can take on an expanded role.
He caught a career-high 77 passes for 982 yards this past season and was very reliable, reeling in almost 75 percent of his targets.
