NFL Free Agency: Who's Left?

New, comments

One prevailing thought I've seen among Jets fans is that there are no good players left, which in my very humble opinion is completely false.

I wanted to have a look for myself, to see if there are any players who could really come in and make a difference and there really are. There are plenty of low risk, high reward guys on here. There is still some talent and in my personal opinion, it's the second week of free agency where you build a true challenger. If you can nab one of the top free agents then go ahead and do that, as long as it makes financial sense. The Jets did that with Decker. Then try and fill some holes with solid talent, which is what we still need to do, bring in some good solid players and then attack the draft.

However you can all make your own opinions, based on the players that are still available, as listed below. I've only included the top 5 players at the position.

There are no Jimmy Graham's or Jairus Byrd's left, but if we can come out of this with DRC, James Jones and possibly resigning someone like Colon, then I wouldn't be upset at all.
