With the 2022 NFL free agency period set to kick off in a couple of weeks, we take a look at some of the best landing spots for the league’s top free agents.
The 2022 NFL free agency period is almost upon us. This exciting time brings insane movement to the NFL landscape. It is during this time where many players sign record-breaking deals, and where trades can happen as well.
This free agency period might be a bit more dramatic than others, as the league could see several franchise-caliber quarterbacks on the move.
Beyond that, there are a plethora of big-name free agents that are set to make their new teams extremely happy.
There are some cautions with free agency, though. Some teams end up overpaying to land a big-name free agent, while others will sign someone quickly who is perhaps injury prone.
Every year, there is an NFL team that does indeed overpay for a player or pay for someone who is too injury-prone.
With that said, let’s take a look a the best fits for some of the pending free agents.
NFL Free Agency 2022: Best fit for Chandler Jones
Chandler Jones is going to make the Hall of Fame one day. The sack master has been at it since 2012, and with the Arizona Cardinals having little cap space, it makes sense that Jones will end up on another team, most likely a contender.
Jones has the tools to win with power and speed and is a complete pass rusher.
Chandler Jones is projected to sign a contract that will pay him close to $15 million per year. That is still top money for a 32-year-old pass rusher, and he will have no problem getting a large contract with the salary cap set to explode in future years.
With many teams needing pass rush help, he’d have a lot of suitors, but I do not think he is going to sign with a team that isn’t ready to contend.
I could see a team like the Colts or Bengals throwing some money at Jones, or even the Denver Broncos if they can find a solution at quarterback.
Don’t expect Chandler Jones to simply just chase the money, but expect him to chase a team ready to win who can also accommodate his financial desire.
