Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

Note that there are not 100 players yet, but there will be additions as cuts begin.

  1. Jadeveon Clowney, DE/OLB, Texans. Age: 26.
    Franchised by Texans

    Jadeveon Clowney is one of the top edge players in the NFL. He’s a fearsome pass rusher, and he’s even better in run support. He’s also just 26, so he’ll continue to improve as long as the motivation is there.

  2. DeMarcus Lawrence, DE, Cowboys. Age: 27.
    Franchised by Cowboys

    DeMarcus Lawrence is an exceptional defensive end, as both a pass rusher and a run defender. He has logged a combined 25.5 sacks in the past two seasons. He’s also young enough to keep making improvements to his game.

  3. Le’Veon Bell, RB, Steelers. Age: 27.
    Signed with Jets (4 years, $52.5 million)

    Le’Veon Bell is a bad presence to have in the locker room, but there’s no questioning his talent. His legs will be fresh following a year off, so he could have a huge 2019 campaign.

  4. Trey Flowers, DE, Patriots. Age: 26.
    Signed with Lions (5 years)

    If you want proof that Trey Flowers was crucial to New England’s defense last year, consider that he missed the Jacksonville and Detroit games (was knocked out on the opening drive versus the Jaguars), and New England lost both contests despite those opponents failing to make the playoffs. Flowers is an exceptional talent as both a pass rusher and a run stopper. He’s just 26 (in August), so he should continue to improve his game.

  5. Grady Jarrett, DT, Falcons. Age: 26.
    Franchised by Falcons

    Grady Jarrett is one of the top 4-3 defensive tackles in the NFL. He’s absolutely dominant in the interior, both as a pass rusher and a run stopper. He’s turns just 26 in April, so he could continue to improve his game. He’s set to earn a huge contract soon.

  6. Jordan Hicks, ILB, Eagles. Age: 27.
    Signed with Cardinals (4 years, $36 million; $20 million guaranteed)

    The Eagles have plenty of big-name free agents this offseason. If there’s one player they must re-sign, it’s Jordan Hicks. He’s the heart and soul of the defense, which absolutely falls apart if he’s ever out of the lineup. Hicks is entering his prime as well, so he’ll continue to improve.

  7. Frank Clark, DE, Seahawks. Age: 26.
    Franchised by Seahawks

    Frank Clark is coming off his best season as a pro, logging 13 sacks. He’s only 25 (26 in June), so he’s expected to make big strides in the coming years. The sky is the limit for him.

  8. Landon Collins, S, Giants. Age: 25.
    Signed with Redskins (6 years, $84 million; $45 million guaranteed)

    Landon Collins is a terrific play-making safety. The Giants will desperately want to retain him, as he’s just 25 and can still make improvements to his game. Collins missed December because of a shoulder injury that required surgery, but he should be 100 percent by September.

  9. Adrian Amos, S, Bears. Age: 26.
    Signed with Packers (4 years, $37 million)

    Adrian Amos isn’t quite an elite safety, but he’s pretty close and young enough to move up in status. He’s a terrific player and should command a huge contract this offseason unless he’s franchised.

  10. Earl Thomas, S, Seahawks. Age: 30.
    Signed with Ravens (4 years, $55 million)

    Earl Thomas would’ve been a five-star free agent a year ago, but he turns 30 in May. Still, Thomas should still be one of the top safeties in the NFL for the next three or so years. Thomas is coming off a season-ending leg injury, but should be able to rebound.

  11. Nick Foles, QB, Eagles. Age: 30.
    Signed with Jaguars (4 years, $88 million; $50.125 million guaranteed)

    Ah, to think Nick Foles almost retired. Jeff Fisher broke Foles, but Andy Reid, Doug Pederson and all of their assistants revived him. Foles, of course, went on to out-duel Tom Brady in the Super Bowl and then proved that was no fluke, leading the Eagles back from the dead to make the playoffs the following year. Foles isn’t the most talented quarterback, but he has terrific leadership skills and comes through in big moments.

  12. Ronald Darby, CB, Eagles. Age: 25.
    Re-signed with Eagles (1 year, $8.5 million)

    Ronald Darby is not an elite cornerback, he’s a solid No. 1 in most cases. Darby tore his ACL in mid-November, but should be 100 percent at some point in 2019. He’s only 25, so his future is bright, despite the knee.

  13. K.J. Wright, OLB, Seahawks. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Seahawks (2 years, $15 million)

    K.J. Wright has been an excellent linebacker for the Seahawks in all regards throughout this decade. He turns 30 this offseason, but still should continue to play on a high level. Wright was on the field for just five games in 2018 because of a knee injury, but he should be 100 percent for 2019.

  14. Za’Darius Smith, DE/OLB, Ravens. Age: 26.
    Signed with Packers

    Za’Darius Smith is a very promising young edge rusher. He recorded 8.5 sacks in 2018, and he wasn’t even a full-time player. He could break into double-digit sacks next year depending on where he goes, or if he returns and Terrell Suggs retires.

  15. Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Chiefs. Age: 28.
    Franchised by Chiefs

    Dee Ford is a late bloomer. He struggled early in his career, but had a breakout season in 2018, notching 13 sacks. He wasn’t very good in run support, which is why he isn’t rated higher than four stars.

  16. Trent Brown, OT, Patriots. Age: 26.
    Signed with Raiders (4 years, $66 million; $36.75 million guaranteed)

    There was some doubt as to whether or not Trent Brown could play well on the blind side, but he silenced critics with his performance in 2018. Brown played very well at left tackle, and at just 26 (in April), he has immense potential to eventually emerge on a Pro Bowl level.

  17. Sheldon Richardson, DT, Vikings. Age: 28.
    Signed with Browns (3 years, $36 million)

    Sheldon Richardson is an extremely talented defensive lineman, playing very strongly in the pass rush and run defense. He can play in both the 4-3 and 3-4, so he should garner tons of interest if he gets to the open market.

  18. Ndamukong Suh, DT, Rams. Age: 32.
    Signed with Buccaneers (1 year)

    Ndamukong Suh had an impactful year with the Rams in 2018, but wasn’t quite the dominant force we’re used to seeing. Age is beginning to become a factor, as Suh turned 32 in January. Still, he should be a force in the interior for a couple more seasons.

  19. Gerald McCoy, DT, Buccaneers. Age: 31.
    Signed with Panthers (1 year, $8 million)

    Gerald McCoy was the subject of trade rumors, but the Buccaneers had no leverage. He was released for financial reasons, as well as the fact that he’s not a good fit in the new 3-4. McCoy is no longer the dominant force he once was, but he’s still capable of playing on close to a Pro Bowl level. He turned 31 this offseason, so a sharp decline will come soon, but he should still have two or three more strong years remaining in the tank.

  20. Ja’Wuan James, OT, Dolphins. Age: 27.
    Signed with Broncos (4 years, $52 million; $32 million guaranteed)

    Ja’Wuan James is a stellar right tackle, but had a down 2018 season because he played through a knee injury. He’s still young (27 in June), so he should be able to rebound at 100-percent capacity to open the 2019 campaign.

  21. Daryl Williams, OT, Panthers. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Panthers (1 year)

    Daryl Williams was sorely missed in 2018. He played just one game because of a knee injury. Williams is Carolina’s best offensive lineman, and he’s only 27 (in August), so he’s still due a large contract despite barely playing last year.

  22. Steven Nelson, CB, Chiefs. Age: 25.
    Signed with Steelers (3 years, $25.5 million)

    Steven Nelson was Kansas City’s best outside cornerback last year. That’s not saying much, but Nelson played on a high level. He has improved each season, and at just 25, the sky’s the limit for him.

  23. Matt Paradis, C, Broncos. Age: 29.
    Signed with Panthers (3 years, $27 million)

    Matt Paradis is an excellent center. He missed the final seven games of the year with a fractured fibula, but he hasn’t been out for any other contest in his career. Paradis turns 30 in October, but he should continue to play on a high level for several seasons.

  24. Bryce Callahan, CB, Bears. Age: 27.
    Signed with Broncos (3 years, $21 million)

    Bryce Callahan is one of the top slot cornerbacks in the NFL. He was lost late in the year with a broken foot, but he should be 100 percent by the time training camp starts.

  25. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, Redskins. Age: 26.
    Signed with Bears (1 year)

    Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was inexplicably traded from the Packers to the Redskins during the season. Clinton-Dix improved Washington’s secondary. He’s an excellent cover safety. He might miss some tackles, but he’s a defensive play-maker.

  26. Lamarcus Joyner, S, Rams. Age: 28.
    Signed with Raiders (4 years)

    Lamarcus Joyner has been a stellar safety for the Rams over the past couple of years. He hasn’t played a full season since 2015, which is a bit of a concern, but he should still command a high price tag in free agency this spring.

  27. Brandon Graham, DE, Eagles. Age: 31.
    Re-signed with Eagles (3 years)

    Though Brandon Graham has never notched double-digit sacks, he has been one of the better defensive ends in the NFL over the past decade. He’s been tremendous in all facets. Unfortunately for Graham, he turns 31 this offseason, so regression is coming soon.

  28. Tyrann Mathieu, S, Texans. Age: 27.
    Signed with Chiefs (3 years, $42 million)

    Tyrann Mathieu was once an other-worldly player for the Cardinals. He hasn’t been quite the same since suffering a torn ACL a few years ago. However, he played very well in 2018 and should be able to improve as he continues to be removed from his knee injury.

  29. Ezekiel Ansah, DE, Lions. Age: 30.
    Signed with Seahawks (1 year)

    Ezekiel Ansah is an extremely talented edge rusher, but he can’t stay healthy. He hasn’t played a full season since 2015. He also turns 30 this offseason, which is not ideal.

  30. Timmy Jernigan, DT, Eagles. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Eagles (1 year)

    The Eagles will not pick up Timmy Jernigan’s $11 million option, making him a free agent this offseason. Jernigan barely played last year because of injuries, but should be able to bounce back in 2019, given his age. Jernigan is a stout run defender who can generate some pressure on the quarterback.

  31. Preston Smith, DE/OLB, Redskins. Age: 26.
    Signed with Packers (4 years, $52 million)

    Jay Gruden sung Preston Smith’s praises in training camp, and Smith delivered. He accumulated half the sacks from 2017, seeing the number drop from eight to four, but he generated lots of pressures and stopped the run very well. Just 26, Smith should continue to improve.

  32. David Irving, DT, Cowboys. Age: 26.
    David Irving was dominant down the stretch in 2016, and he proved that wasn’t a fluke the year after. He was limited to just eight games because of a concussion and a suspension, but he was terrific in those eight contests, registering seven sacks, which is a high number for a player at his position in a full 16-game slate. Irving barely played in 2018 because of injury. However, he’s just 26 in August, so he should continue to improve his game.

  33. Mitch Morse, C, Chiefs. Age: 27.
    Signed with Bills

    Mitch Morse is a very talented center, especially in pass protection. He’s also just 27 (in April), so he has a bright future ahead of him. The one issue is that he hasn’t stayed healthy; he’s missed 12 total games in the past two years. If it weren’t for his durability, he’d be rated as a four-star player.

  34. Pierre Desir, CB, Colts. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Colts (3 years)

    Pierre Desir is a former fourth-round pick from the Browns. He did very little in Cleveland, but signed with the Colts and had a breakout 2018 campaign. He should be in line for a big contract.

  35. Rodger Saffold, G, Rams. Age: 31.
    Signed with Titans (4 years, $44 million; $22.5 million guaranteed)

    Rodger Saffold used to be very injury-prone, but he hasn’t gotten hurt in a couple of years. Saffold turns 31 in June, which is not ideal, but considering that guards can play on a high level into their mid-30s, Saffold should continue to be a solid starter.

  36. Eric Weddle, S, Ravens. Age: 34.
    Signed with Rams

    Eric Weddle played on a Pro Bowl level last season, so Baltimore’s decision to cut him was purely financial. The Ravens are saving $7.5 million in cap space by releasing Weddle. The star safety turned 34 this offseason, and he should be able to perform on a high level for another year or two.

  37. Justin Houston, DE/OLB, Chiefs. Age: 30.
    Signed with Colts (2 years, $24 million)

    Justin Houston is a huge name, but he’s been a declining player in recent years. Thanks to injuries – he has played more than 12 games just once since 2014 – he has failed to register double-digit sacks in the past four years. Houston could rebound, but he turned 30 recently, so there’s a chance he could just continue to have injury-plagued seasons.

  38. Jay Ajayi, RB, Eagles. Age: 26.
    Jay Ajayi was excellent during Philadelphia’s Super Bowl run in 2017. He barely played last year, however, because of a torn ACL. Knee injuries can sometimes be scary for running backs, but Ajayi should be ready to go by training camp.

  39. Muhammad Wilkerson, DE/DT, Packers. Age: 29.
    From 2012 to 2015, Muhammad Wilkerson was considered a top-five 3-4 defensive end. It could’ve even been argued that he was the second-best player at his position in the entire league, behind only J.J. Watt. Wilkerson was rewarded with a 5-year, $87 million deal in the summer of 2016. Wilkerson mailed it in after that, then was cut. Wilkerson joined the Packers and played very well for three games before suffering a season-ending injury. Wilkerson isn’t 30 yet, so he could continue to play on a high level for a team that has a strong locker room.

  40. Kareem Jackson, CB, Texans. Age: 31.
    Signed with Broncos (3 years)

    Kareem Jackson emerged as one of the top cornerbacks in the NFL this past season. He’s a late bloomer for certain. Unfortunately for Jackson, he’s turning 31 in April, so he doesn’t have much time left to play on a high level.

  41. Christian Covington, DE/DT, Texans. Age: 25.
    Signed with Cowboys (1 year)

    Christian Covington is one of the top run-stuffing defensive linemen in the NFL. His pass-rushing skills need work, but he won’t turn 26 until October, so he has plenty of time to develop moves to get to the quarterback.

  42. Golden Tate, WR, Eagles. Age: 31.
    Signed with Giants (4 years)

    It’s unclear why, but Golden Tate never meshed well with either Carson Wentz or Nick Foles (at least not until the final touchdown of the opening-round playoff game.) He’ll definitely fare better wherever he goes next offseason.

  43. Mark Ingram, RB, Saints. Age: 29.
    Signed with Ravens (3 years, $15 million)

    Mark Ingram has had his ups and downs in his career, but it’s been mostly up for him lately. He’s turning 30 soon, but he might be hungry to show what he’s capable of doing with the lead back job all to himself.

  44. Darius Philon, DT, Chargers. Age: 25.
    Signed with Cardinals (2 years, $10 million)

    Darius Philon, a former sixth-round pick, has developed into a solid starter. He stuffed the run very well last year and also notched four sacks. He’s only 25, so he should continue to improve.

  45. Denzel Perryman, ILB, Chargers. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Chargers (2 years)

    The Chargers missed Denzel Perryman down the stretch after he suffered a knee injury. Fortunately for Perryman, he’s expected to be 100 percent for 2019. Perryman will continue to be a very well-rounded linebacker. Only 26, Perryman might be able to improve his game.

  46. C.J. Mosley, ILB, Ravens. Age: 27.
    Signed with Jets (5 years, $85 million; $51 million guaranteed)

    C.J. Mosley is an overrated player, as he tends to struggle in coverage sometimes. He’s not awful in that regard, but he can be a liability on occasion. He’s still a decent linebacker, as he’s excellent in run support, but he’s not rated as highly as people might think he should be.

  47. Morgan Burnett, S, Steelers. Age: 30.
    Signed with Browns (2 years)

    Morgan Burnett was once the centerpiece of Green Bay’s defense, playing numerous positions. He joined the Steelers last year, but struggled, as Pittsburgh did not use him optimally for some reason. Burnett has the talent to have a nice, rebound 2019 campaign. He turned 30 recently, but he should still have two high-end seasons.

  48. Eric Berry, S, Chiefs. Age: 30.
    Eric Berry was once known as one of the top safeties in the NFL. Unfortunately, between cancer and Achilles/foot issues, Berry has regressed. He struggled late last year, so the Chiefs have decided to move on with another safety. The good news is that a doctor said Berry will not need surgery, so he’ll have a chance to bounce back next year. He’s 30, but it’s not out of the question that he could return to playing on a Pro Bowl level.

  49. Zach Brown, ILB, Redskins. Age: 29.
    Signed with Eagles

    Zach Brown is coming off a fantastic 2018 campaign, so it’s shocking that the Redskins cut him to save $5.75 million in cap space. Brown should continue to play on a high level in the near future, but the one downside with him is that he’ll turn 30 soon.

  50. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Saints. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Saints

    Teddy Bridgewater is difficult to rate. He was once considered a potential franchise quarterback, but he tore his knee gruesomely prior to the 2016 season. He has finally made it back and was able to start once last year. However, he didn’t have a good performance, going 14-of-22 for 118 yards, one touchdown and an interception. Perhaps another offseason will get Bridgewater to full strength, but it could be possible that he just won’t be starter material going forward. The Saints have had a good look at him in practice all fall, so it’ll be interesting to see what they do.

  51. Larry Fitzgerald, WR, Cardinals. Age: 36.
    Re-signed with Cardinals (1 year)

    Larry Fitzgerald turns 36 in August, but he can still be a dynamic downfield threat. Unfortunately, thanks to the incompetence of Josh Rosen and Sam Bradford, Fitzgerald had his first sub-1,000-yard season since 2014. Don’t blame that on him, though.

  52. Adrian Peterson, RB, Redskins. Age: 34.
    Re-signed with Redskins (2 years)

    Adrian Peterson defied the skeptics last season and rushed for 1,000 yards in 2018 despite running behind an injury-ravaged offensive line. I imagine Peterson will skip training camp and sign with a team whose starting running back suffers an injury.

  53. Mark Glowinski, G, Colts. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Colts (3 years, $18 million)

    Think the Seahawks wish they still Mark Glowinski? They waived him in 2017, and the Colts claimed him. Glowinski began the 2018 campaign as a backup, but took over as a starting guard in Week 6 and thrived in all facets.

  54. Clayton Geathers, S, Colts. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Colts

    Clayton Geathers had a solid year for the Colts. He wasn’t great in coverage, but was a force in run support.

  55. Margus Hunt, DE/DT, Colts. Age: 32.
    Re-signed with Colts (2 years, $9 million)

    Margus Hunt is a late bloomer, but he’s been excellent for the Colts. He’s just a pedestrian pass rusher, but he has elite run-stopping skills. Unfortunately for Hunt, he turns 32 this summer.

  56. Jason McCourty, CB, Patriots. Age: 32.
    Re-signed with Patriots (2 years)

    Jason McCourty misses some tackles, but he’s a very skilled cover cornerback. The downside is his age (32 in August), but he should be able to play on a high level for another year or two.

  57. Terrell Suggs, DE/OLB, Ravens. Age: 36.
    Signed with Cardinals

    Terrell Suggs somehow continues to be very productive despite his age. He racked up seven sacks in 2018 after logging 11 sacks the year before. Suggs has shown no signs of slowing down, but he’ll turn 37 in October, so the end has to be near.

  58. Bobby Massie, OT, Bears. Age: 30.
    Re-signed with Bears

    Bobby Massie was once considered a liability as a starter on the offensive line, but he has improved each year. He’s become a solid right tackle who pass protects very well. Given the weak tackle class in the 2019 NFL Draft, some team might offer him more money than he’s worth.

  59. Mike Pennel, NT, Jets. Age: 28.
    Signed with Patriots

    Mike Pennel didn’t register a single sack in 2018, but he was a stout run stopper. The Jets let him go because he doesn’t fit the new 4-3 defense.

  60. Bruce Irvin, DE/OLB, Falcons. Age: 31.
    Signed with Panthers (1 year)

    Bruce Irvin was problematic in Oakland’s locker room, which is why the team got rid of him. Irvin was slow to adjust to the Falcons, but found his stride late in the year when he recorded 3.5 sacks in the final four games. Irvin could begin slowing down, however, as he turns 32 right before Thanksgiving.

  61. Malik Jackson, DE/DT, Jaguars. Age: 29.
    Signed with Eagles (3 years, $30 million)

    Malik Jackson joined the Jaguars during the 2016 season. He had two stellar years in Jacksonville, but his performance fell off a cliff last year, ultimately leading to his benching. Jackson, however, isn’t 30 yet, so there’s a good chance he’ll be able to bounce back in 2019. He would be a nice signing on a 1-year “prove it” deal.

  62. Tre Boston, S, Cardinals. Age: 27.
    Tre Boston misses some tackles, but he’s excellent in coverage. Aside from Patrick Peterson, he’s been one of the primary reasons why the Cardinals were ranked so highly in pass coverage this past season.

  63. Tashaun Gipson, S, Jaguars. Age: 29.
    Signed with Texans (3 years, $22 million)

    Tashaun Gipson has played very well for the Jaguars for the past three seasons, but counted $9.1 million against the cap. That money was needed to sign Nick Foles. Gipson should bounce back with his next team. He turns 29 this summer, so he’ll be able to play at a high level for two or three more years.

  64. Lorenzo Alexander, LB, Bills. Age: 36.
    Re-signed with Bills (1 year)

    Lorenzo Alexander is coming off a great season, thriving in all facets. He covered well in space, dominated in run support and collected 6.5 sacks. Unfortunately, he turns 36 in May.

  65. Derrick Morgan, DE/OLB, Titans. Age: 30.
    Derrick Morgan had his worst year as a pro since his rookie campaign in 2018. He had just half of a sack. However, he was slowed down by a shoulder injury all year, so it’s likely that he’ll bounce back next year. The downside is that he turns 30 this offseason.

  66. Adrian Clayborn, DE, Patriots. Age: 31.
    Signed with Falcons (1 year)

    Adrian Clayborn is a rock-solid defensive end with no weaknesses. He logged a career-high 9.5 sacks in 2017, though six of them came in one game where Dallas’ inept coaching staff didn’t adjust for Tyron Smith being injured. He predictably saw that number dip to 2.5 in 2018, but still played well overall. Unfortunately, Clayborn turns 31 in July, so he’ll regress rapidly in the near future.

  67. Anthony Barr, OLB, Vikings. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Vikings

    Anthony Barr is an excellent run-stopping linebacker, but he is a liability in coverage. He’s still young, but perhaps he should be a two-down player.

  68. Morris Claiborne, CB, Jets. Age: 29.
    Morris Claiborne has signed consecutive 1-year “prove it” deals the past two seasons. Claiborne was much better in 2017 than 2018 because of injuries. He’s not healthy very often.

  69. Jamie Collins, OLB. Age: 29.
    Signed with Patriots

    Jamie Collins was once a valuable member of New England’s defense. The Patriots then traded Collins to Cleveland, where he had two-and-a-half disappointing seasons. Cutting Collins, who turns 30 in October, was a no-brainer for the Browns, as his release clears $10.5 million off the books.

  70. Rashaan Melvin, CB, Raiders. Age: 29.
    Signed with Lions (1 year, $3.5 million)

    Rashaan Melvin is a skilled cornerback, but his one major weakness is his durability. He’s not dependable at all, as he’s yet to play a full season in the NFL. Still, everyone knows this, so that could make him an attractive buy-low option.

  71. Darqueze Dennard, CB, Bengals. Age: 27.
    Re-signed with Bengals

    Darqueze Dennard has done a solid job as Cincinnati’s slot cornerback over the past couple of years, though he missed a few games in 2018 with a shoulder injury. Dennard hasn’t lived up to his first-round billing, but he’s a decent player.

  72. Dez Bryant, WR, Saints. Age: 30.
    Dez Bryant is a declining player approaching 31 (in November) who struggles to separate. He has not adjusted his game to compensate for this, and he’ll need to if he wants to keep playing beyond two more seasons. He’s no longer a No. 1 receiver, but perhaps his release and subsequent injury will serve as motivation.

  73. John Brown, WR, Ravens. Age: 29.
    Signed with Bills (3 years, $27 million)

    John Brown showed some explosive play-making ability for the first time in years when he was paired with Joe Flacco. His stats diminished with Lamar Jackson at the helm, however. Still, Brown is a solid receiver, though he has a lengthy injury history.

  74. Kwon Alexander, ILB, Buccaneers. Age: 25.
    Signed with 49ers (4 years, $54 million; $27 million guaranteed)

    Kwon Alexander played in only six games last year because he tore his ACL in late October. Alexander, a decent middle linebacker, should be ready to play by the season opener. He’s still only 25, so he still has time to improve his game.

  75. Adam Humphries, WR, Buccaneers. Age: 26.
    Signed with Titans (4 years, $36 million)

    Adam Humphries is a quality slot receiver who caught 76 passes for 816 yards and five touchdowns. Humphries’ production has risen every year, and one has to wonder how he’d perform with a coaching staff that knew what it was doing.

  76. Justin Coleman, CB, Seahawks. Age: 26.
    Signed with Lions (4 years, $36 million)

    Justin Coleman is a solid slot cornerback. He covers very well, but misses too many tackles. He’s still young, however, as he’ll be just 26 in March, so perhaps he can improve on his tackling ability.

  77. Henry Anderson, DE/DT, Jets. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Jets (3 years, $25.2 million)

    Henry Anderson has always been a stout run defender, and he flashed some pass-rushing prowess this past season, racking up seven sacks. This was probably a fluke, but any pass rush Anderson generates is a bonus.

  78. Brent Urban, DE/DT, Ravens. Age: 28.
    Signed with Titans

    Brent Urban is a stellar run defender as a rotational defensive lineman, but he offers very little as a pass rusher.

  79. Kayvon Webster, CB, Texans. Age: 28.
    Kayvon Webster is a talented cornerback, but came off a torn Achilles a couple of years ago that caused him to miss most of 2018. Still, Webster is just 28, so he potentially still has some good years ahead of him.

  80. Randy Gregory, DE, Cowboys. Age: 26.
    Randy Gregory is an exceptionally talented edge rusher, and he won’t turn 27 until November. He has the skill to be a four-star player at the very least. Unfortunately, he’s not reliable. He could be suspended for yet another off-the-field transgression at any moment.

  81. Cameron Wake, DE, Dolphins. Age: 37.
    Signed with Titans (3 years, $23 million)

    Cameron Wake played very well last year, but despite this, he was a half-step slower than usual. This isn’t much of a surprise, as Wake is now 37. He could begin regressing rapidly soon.

  82. Markus Golden, DE/OLB, Cardinals. Age: 28.
    Signed with Giants (1 year)

    Markus Golden collected 12.5 sacks two years ago, but hasn’t been productive since. Perhaps he needs more time to recover from the knee injury that had him sidelined for 12 games in 2017. The change to the 4-3 could’ve impacted him as well. Golden should be better in a 3-4 once he’s healthier in 2019.

  83. Josh Bynes, LB, Cardinals. Age: 30.
    Josh Bynes is a late bloomer, as he’s coming off his best season. Unfortunately, he turns 30 in August, so he may not play at a high level for very long.

  84. Corey Liuget, DT, Chargers. Age: 29.
    Corey Liuget is still an effective player when he’s able to play. Unfortunately for Liuget, he hasn’t been very reliable. Liuget is constantly injured and thus has missed 14 games over the past two seasons. He’s still young enough to have a bounce-back year or two, but should be signed to a short-term “prove it” deal.

  85. Jamison Crowder, WR, Redskins. Age: 26.
    Signed with Jets

    Jamison Crowder has been Washington’s best receiver for some time, which isn’t really saying much. Unfortunately, Crowder has had trouble staying healthy over the past couple of years.

  86. Bradley Roby, CB, Broncos. Age: 27.
    Signed with Texans (1 year, $10 million)

    Bradley Roby has experienced an up-and-down career thus far. He played well in 2015, struggled the year after, bounced back at a high level in 2017, then performed poorly once again this past season. Roby dealt with some injuries in 2018, so that could explain his regression. The former first-round pick is young (27 in May) and talented enough to bounce back.

  87. T.J. Lang, G, Lions. Age: 31.
    Announced retirement

    T.J. Lang played very well for the Lions when healthy. Unfortunately, that was a rare occurrence. Lang was seldom healthy while with Detroit, missing 13 games in two years and being banged up in several contests. Lang is still young enough to rebound – guards can play well into their mid-30s – but given his injury history, he’ll need to be signed to a 1-year “prove it” deal.

  88. Brandon Marshall, LB, Broncos. Age: 29.
    Signed with Raiders (1 year, $4.1 million)

    Brandon Marshall was once a stellar linebacker, but his play has fallen off a cliff in recent years because of injuries. However, Marshall isn’t 30 yet, so he still has time to get healthy and rebound.

  89. Jake Ryan, ILB, Packers. Age: 27.
    Signed with Jaguars

    Jake Ryan missed all of 2018 with a torn ACL, but he should be 100 percent for the 2019 opener because he suffered the injury over the summer. Ryan is excellent in run support, but could be better in pass coverage.

  90. Nick Perry, DE/OLB, Packers. Age: 29.
    Nick Perry was released in the wake of the Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith signings. The move saves the Packers $3.3 million. Perry is a decent edge rusher when healthy, but he has missed 11 games the past two seasons. He’s only topped double-digit sacks once in his career.

  91. Tevin Coleman, RB, Falcons. Age: 26.
    Signed with 49ers (2 years, $10 million)

    Tevin Coleman had the opportunity to have a dominant year as the sole ball-carrier in Atlanta when Devonta Freeman went down with an injury. Coleman disappointed, however, gaining only 800 rushing yards. He averaged 4.8 yards per carry, but that is a misleading stat which came to light because of a couple of long runs versus Arizona’s abysmal defense.

  92. Cole Beasley, WR, Cowboys. Age: 30.
    Signed with Bills (4 years, $29 million)

    Cole Beasley has been a reliable slot receiver for the Cowboys over the years. He caught 65 passes for 672 yards in 2018 after a slow start. Beasley turns 30 in April, but should still be effective over the next 2-3 years.

  93. Ramon Foster, G, Steelers. Age: 33.
    Re-signed with Steelers (2 years, $8.25 million)

    Ramon Foster turned 33 this offseason, but he did a solid job yet again in the interior of Pittsburgh’s offensive line. Unfortunately for Foster, age is beginning to become a factor.

  94. Andy Levitre, G, Falcons. Age: 33.
    Andy Levitre was one of many talented Falcons to be lost to injury in the first couple of weeks of the season. Levitre was definitely missed, but he’ll turn 33 this offseason, so he could be in decline soon.

  95. Steve McLendon, NT, Jets. Age: 33.
    Re-signed with Jets

    Steve McLendon is a stout run defender, but at 33, he could be due for regression soon.

  96. Brandon Mebane, DT, Chargers. Age: 34.
    Re-signed with Chargers

    Brandon Mebane tore his biceps in November, and Ian Rapoport reported that he would be done for the year. This turned out to be fake news, as Mebane missed just a few games. Mebane is excellent at stuffing the run, but his age (34) is becoming a concern.

  97. Thomas Davis, OLB, Panthers. Age: 36.
    Signed with Chargers

    Thomas Davis played well in 2018 despite being 35 years old. He was solid in coverage, proving that he can still perform decently despite being in his mid-30s.

  98. C.J. Anderson, RB, Rams. Age: 28.
    Signed with Lions (1 year)

    It’s bizarre that C.J. Anderson was on the open market for so long. Some team finally signed him, and Anderson rewarded the Rams for doing so. Anderson had two terrific performances down the stretch in relief of an injured/resting Todd Gurley. Anderson is still just 28, so he can be a starter.

  99. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Raiders. Age: 33.
    Marshawn Lynch still looked like he had plenty left in the tank this season, averaging 4.2 yards per carry behind one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL. Lynch turns 33 in April and could sign with a contender on a 1-year deal.

  100. Jared Cook, TE, Raiders. Age: 32.
    Signed with Saints

    Jared Cook is coming off an amazing year. He’s enjoyed several 100-yard receiving games, as he and Derek Carr formed some terrific chemistry. It took Cook a while to blossom, but he’s finally done it. Unfortunately for Cook, he turns 32 this offseason.

  101. Jahleel Addae, S, Chargers. Age: 29.
    Signed with Texans (1 year, $1.1 million)

    Jahleel Addae has been an inconsistent player over the years. He was good enough to warrant a 4-year, $22 million contract a couple of offseasons ago and played well in 2017, but struggled last season. As a result, Addae was dumped for salary reasons.

  102. Kenny Vaccaro, S, Titans. Age: 28.
    Re-signed with Titans (4 years, $26 million)

    Kenny Vaccaro did a solid job filling in for the injured John Cyprien this past season. He’s a decent starting safety who still has a couple more seasons before he turns 30. He has an extensive injury history, unfortunately.

  103. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Jaguars. Age: 26.
    Signed with Patriots

    Austin Seferian-Jenkins had a great year in 2017 for the Jets, but did nothing in Jacksonville last year. Part of that can be blamed on Blake Bortles, so it’s possible for Seferian-Jenkins to bounce back in 2019.

  104. Andrew Sendejo, S, Vikings. Age: 32.
    Signed with Eagles

    Andrew Sendejo has been a solid safety for the Vikings for years, but wasn’t needed anymore with younger, cheaper players at the position stepping up in the wake of his injuries. Sendejo should still be able to play well, but he turns 32 in September, so regression is coming soon.

  105. Jesse James, TE, Steelers. Age: 25.
    Signed with Lions

    Jesse James is known for his non-catch/catch against the Patriots in 2017, but he’s an excellent blocking tight end with some plus receiving ability. He’s also just 25 (in June), so he has a decent amount of potential to improve in the latter regard.

  106. Nick Boyle, TE, Ravens. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Ravens (3 years, $18 million)

    Nick Boyle is an excellent blocking tight end. He’s unlikely to develop into a potent receiver, but he’s at least functional as a pass-catcher.

  107. Josh Sitton, G, Dolphins. Age: 33.
    Announced retirement

    Here’s what I wrote about Josh Sitton last offseason: “Sitton missed three games with an ankle injury this past season, but was otherwise terrific. Sitton has been one of the best guards in the NFL over the past decade. He’s 32 now, but interior linemen can play at a high level into their mid-30s, so Sitton should still have a few great years remaining in the tank.” Sitton seemed like a nice signing for the Dolphins last offseason, but was only able to play one game before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. Sitton is now 33, but could play well if healthy.

  108. Ryan Kalil, C, Panthers. Age: 34.
    Ryan Kalil, a former perennial Pro Bowler, hasn’t been the same recently because of injuries. He said that 2018 was going to be his final season in the pros.
