2023 NFL Free Agency: Star rating is out of five. Age listing as of Sept. 1, 2023.
Follow me @walterfootball for updates.

  1. Marcus Davenport, DE, Saints. Age: 26.
    Signed with Vikings

    Marcus Davenport logged nine sacks in 2021, but had just half of a sack this past year. Davenport played much better than that number indicates, however.

  2. Zach Allen, DE/DT, Cardinals. Age: 26.
    Signed with Broncos (3 years, $47.8 million)

    Zach Allen had always been a decent player, but he made a big leap in 2022. He was terrific, so he may get a big contract.

  3. Brandon Graham, DE, Eagles. Age: 35.
    Re-signed with Eagles (1 year, $6 million)

    Brandon Graham played just two games in 2021. He was sorely missed, yet he was able to return to the field this past year and dominate. The downside is that he’s turning 35 this offseason, so there could be regression coming soon.

  4. Yannick Ngakoue, DE, Colts. Age: 28.
    Signed with Bears

    Yannick Ngakoue wasn’t quite himself last year because he was dealing with an injury, but he still logged 9.5 sacks.

  5. Robert Quinn, DE, Eagles. Age: 33.
    The Eagles traded for Robert Quinn, but didn’t get much use out of him because of a knee injury. He’s still a very talented edge rusher, though he just turned 33.

  6. Jadeveon Clowney, DE, Browns. Age: 30.
    There was some drama with Jadeveon Clowney being sent home by the team in the finale. Clowney is talented, but he’s just been a mediocre-at-best producer.

  7. Bud Dupree, DE, Titans. Age: 30.
    Signed with Falcons (1 year, $5 million)

    Bud Dupree hasn’t been the same since his torn ACL. However, he’s now two years removed from that injury, so he could rebound in 2023.

  8. Melvin Ingram, DE, Dolphins. Age: 34.
    Melvin Ingram is slowing down now that he’s in his mid-30s, but he’s still a quality edge rusher. He recorded six sacks in 2022.

  9. Trey Flowers, DE, Dolphins. Age: 30.
    Trey Flowers was once known as a potent edge rusher, but he had a down 2021, then missed most of 2022 with an injury.

  10. Clelin Ferrell, DE, Raiders. Age: 26.
    Signed with 49ers (1 year)

    Clelin Ferrell has been a huge bust as the former No. 4 overall pick, but perhaps he still has potential. He has totaled just 10 sacks in his career thus far.

  11. Arden Key, DE, Jaguars. Age: 27.
    Signed with Titans (3 years, $24 million)

    Arden Key is a solid rotational pass rusher. He has accumulated 11 sacks in the past two seasons.

  12. Shaq Lawson, DE, Bills. Age: 29.
    Re-signed with Bills

    Shaq Lawson is a solid, rotational pass rusher who accumulated 3.5 sacks last year.

  13. Carlos Dunlap, DE, Chiefs. Age: 34.
    Carlos Dunlap saw his sack total drop from 8.5 to four. That could be because he is now in his mid-30s.

  14. John Cominsky, DE, Lions. Age: 27. — Re-signed with Lions (2 years, $8.5 million)
  15. Dawuane Smoot, DE, Jaguars. Age: 28. — Re-signed with Jaguars
  16. Charles Omenihu, DE, 49ers. Age: 26. — Signed with Chiefs (2 years)
  17. Kerry Hyder, DE, 49ers. Age: 32. — Re-signed with 49ers
  18. Al-Quadin Muhammad, DE, Bears. Age: 28.
  19. Steven Means, DE, Ravens. Age: 33.
  20. Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, Ravens. Age: 34.
  21. Andrew Van Ginkel, DE, Dolphins. Age: 28. — Re-signed with Dolphins
  22. Morgan Fox, DE, Chargers. Age: 28. — Re-signed with Chargers
  23. Jordan Willis, DE, 49ers. Age: 28.
  24. Kaden Elliss, DE, Saints. Age: 28.
  25. Tarell Basham, DE, Titans. Age: 29.
  26. William Gholston, DE, Buccaneers. Age: 32.
  27. Rasheem Green, DE/DT, Texans. Age: 26. — Signed with Bears
  28. Chase Winovich, DE, Browns. Age: 28. — Signed with Texans
  29. DeMarcus Walker, DE/DT, Titans. Age: 28. — Signed with Bears
  30. Austin Bryant, DE, Lions. Age: 26. — Signed with 49ers
  31. Carl Nassib, DE, Buccaneers. Age: 30.
  32. Mario Edwards, DE, Titans. Age: 29. — Signed with Seahawks
  33. Solomon Thomas, DE, Jets. Age: 27. — Re-signed with Jets (1 year)
