NFL free agency preview: Ranking which teams to watch in free agency, from 1-32

Every NFL  fan base wants their team to sign every big-name free agent this month. That won’t happen.

Some teams are positioned well to make a huge splash in free agency. Other teams have tended to their roster in other ways and don’t have much cap space left. A few teams have some cap space but generally don’t heavily invest in free agents.

But there’s plenty of money to be spent and every team has needs.
