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

  1. Dalvin Tomlinson, DT, Vikings. Age: 29.
    Signed with Browns (4 years, $57 million)

    Dalvin Tomlinson is a stellar defensive tackle who can generate great pressure and also play the run very well.

  2. Calais Campbell, DT, Ravens. Age: 37.
    Signed with Falcons (1 year)

    Despite turning 37 on Sept. 1, Calais Campbell is still one of the better defensive linemen in the NFL. That said, he’s not the player he once was because he has to play fewer snaps. Still, he would be a great piece to add to any defensive line.

  3. Fletcher Cox, DT, Eagles. Age: 32.
    Re-signed with Eagles (1 year, $10 million)

    Fletcher Cox has been one of the top defensive tackles in the NFL since he entered the NFL in 2012. However, he’s coming off a down year in which he was beaten up against the run.

  4. Da’Ron Payne, NT, Redskins. Age: 26.
    Re-signed with Redskins

    Da’Ron Payne had a great start to his career, at least until 2022. He had a down year, so perhaps he’ll rebound next season.

  5. David Onyemata, DT, Saints. Age: 30.
    Signed with Falcons (3 years, $35 million)

    David Onyemata has enjoyed some tremendous years in New Orleans, though he’s coming off a down season. He was rather average in 2022. He just turned 30, so perhaps he’s now on the decline.

  6. Javon Hargrave, DT, Eagles. Age: 30.
    Signed with 49ers (4 years, $80 million)

    Javon Hargrave was a dynamic interior pass rusher for the Eagles last year, though he was constantly beat up against the run.

  7. Poona Ford, NT, Seahawks. Age: 27.
    Signed with Bills

    Poona Ford is coming off a down year, but was previously known as a stout run defender. Perhaps he’ll rebound in 2023.

  8. Matt Ioannidis, DT, Panthers. Age: 29.
    Matt Ioannidis is a solid, well-rounded defensive tackle with no weaknesses.

  9. Dre’Mont Jones, DT, Broncos. Age: 26.
    Signed with Seahawks

    Dre’Mont Jones tends to get trampled in run support, but he’s a solid pass-rushing presence with 18.5 sacks in the past three years.

  10. Shelby Harris, DT, Seahawks. Age: 32.
    Shelby Harris has lost some of his pass-rushing prowess, but he’s still a stout run defender.

  11. Sheldon Rankins, DT, Jets. Age: 29.
    Signed with Texans (1 year, $10.5 million)

    Sheldon Rankins has a dubious injury history, but he performed well in all regards last year.

  12. Akiem Hicks, DE/DT, Buccaneers. Age: 33.
    Akiem Hicks missed half the year with an injury. He’s 33 now, but he can still be a stout run defender.
