NFL free agency: Who are the best 25 players available in 2023?

NFL free agency is about to kick off. While it’s becoming increasingly difficult for teams to let go of their stars, there are still players who could depart for the right price.

That is why the expectation is growing for the free agency, one which is scheduled to begin at 16:00 ET on Wednesday. These are the top 25 free agents available for trades according to Yahoo! Sports.

1. Orlando Brown Jr. (Offensive tackle)

He is one of the main players who protect Patrick Mahomes. However, he expects to earn good money this year and the Chiefs didn’t offer him a better deal. Brown is 26 years old and a very good left offensive tackle, something very difficult to see in free agency.

2. Javon Hargrave (Defensive Tackle)

Hargrave has had three fantastic seasons with the Eagles. Last season he had 11.5 sacks, a solid figure for an interior lineman. He still has fuel in the tank, having just turned 30 and he would be a great addition to a good defensive rotation.

3. Jessie Bates III (safety)

Bates played at a high level with the Bengals last year. He is now free to sign with another team that will give him a multi-year contract, since he is a versatile safety at just 26 years old.

4. James Bradberry (cornerback)

Bradberry was the cornerback who gave up a crucial penalty in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl to clinch the title. However, he is a great player in his position. He was released after being on a one-year contract with the Eagles . Many teams will be willing to offer him something more than that.

5. Zach Allen (Defensive End)

A good third-round pick for the Cardinals in 2019. He has since become a great run-and-pass defender at just 25 years old.

6. Jamel Dean (cornerback)

Dean was a starting cornerback for the Buccaneers for 26 years. He isn’t evaluated as a Pro Bowl-caliber player, but he can be a solid starter.

7. Mike McGlinchey (Offensive tackle)

McGlinchey has been a good starter on the right side of the line with the 49ers for five seasons.

8. Jakobi Meyers (receiver)

He is one of the few quality receivers available in free agency. However, he has never had more than 866 yards in a season. Still, he could secure a good contract as wide receiver 2 on a team that needs vertical attack.

9. Chauncey Gardner-Johnson (safety)

The Eagles got him in a trade with the Saints, and he responded with a good season in Philadelphia, albeit with some injury issues. Still, he’s a versatile safety capable of creating turnovers and explosive plays.

10. Dre’Mont Jones (Defensive End)

He was a solid player for the Broncos. Jones is 26 years old and can be an above-average starter.

11. Jordan Poyer (safety)

Although he’s a 32-year veteran, he was solid with the Bills and still has a good season or two left.

12. Tremaine Edmunds (linebacker)

Edmunds is a two-time Pro Bowler and has recorded more than 100 tackles in his five NFL seasons. He is a first-round pick with the Bills and remains a good option at linebacker off the ball.

13. Jawaan Taylor (Offensive Tackle)

Selected in the second round by the Jaguars, he has never missed a start and is looking for a big contract at right tackle, which is also a good idea to upgrade an offensive unit.

14. Dalton Schultz (tight end)

While his numbers were down slightly in 2022 with the Cowboys, he had 808 yards and eight touchdowns in 2021. He’s a good receiver and many teams need a position upgrade.

15. Odell Beckham Jr. (receiver)

Beckham would not be in this instance if there were no doubts about his state of health. Last year the Cowboys didn’t want to take any chances for this reason and he is 13 months into rehab. However, at the Rams he demonstrated that he could establish himself as one of the best at his position in the league when he’s healthy.

16. Frank Clark (defensive end)

Clark is a major loss to the Chiefs, who couldn’t offer him a long-term deal that would win him over. They hope that they could bring him back, but other teams could also be interested in a pass-rusher with a great postseason resume.

17. Bobby Wagner (linebacker)

Wagner will be released by the Rams after one spending there one season. Despite the fact that he is a solid veteran, he can still contribute with short-term contracts in teams that are looking for depth in the midfield.

18. Dalvin Tomlinson (defensive tackle)

He’s a quick fix for the run defense at 325 pounds and a track record of two productive seasons for the Vikings.

19. Jimmy Garoppolo (quarterback)

In 2022, Garoppolo proved that he’s not spectacular, but he is a reliable and experienced quarterback who can surely improve more than half the teams in the league.

20. Kaleb McGary’s (Offensive Tackle)

McGary had a good season with a team in crisis, the Falcons. He’s also a first-round pick and he’s only 28 years old. He would be a good signing at right tackle.

21. Miles Sanders (running back)

Sanders is the best running back available. He had 1,347 total yards and 11 touchdowns last year with the Eagles, who boasted a killer running game.

22. Lavonte David (Linebacker)

A specialist without the ball. He is a top player in his position, strong against the pass and the run. He still has a good year or two ahead of him.

23. Mike Gesicki (tight end)

Gesicki didn’t fit into the Dolphins‘ offense, but he was very productive from 2019 to 2021 and is currently 27 years old. He’s a great receiver even though he doesn’t carry as much weight as a blocker.

24. Marcus Davenport (defensive end)

Davenport is a 26-year-old Saints first-round pick who had nine sacks two seasons ago. He may have just 21.5 sacks in five seasons, but he has yet to fulfil his potential.

25. Cameron Sutton (cornerback)

Sutton became a starter two years ago with the Steelers and had a good 2022 season, earning himself a good multi-year deal for a versatile cornerback.
