2022 NFL Free Agency

2022 NFL Free Agency

The NFL’s free agency period is a way teams get to realign or rebuild their teams for the upcoming season. Some teams invest a lot into the upcoming talent out of college, but others will choose to come to an agreement or deal with a veteran player.

These deals in the NFL usually will come in one, two or maybe three year deals. Incentives come with the deals, depending on whether the player will produce at a high level. Not all teams look for All-Star talent such as Devante Adams or Russel Wilson, but more so, a specific talent of need. Here are three  players that could possibly boost their teams or maybe even bring them down.

Von Miller To The Bills – The Los Angeles Rams sent a second and third round draft pick to Denver for Von back in November. Miller was a key piece to the Rams defense in their championship run last season, acquiring five sacks and 12 tackles for losses at the end of the regular season. He recorded four sacks, six tackles for losses, and six quarterback hits during the postseason. The deal with Buffalo went through, and Miller signed to play with his third team of his professional career for a six year, $120 million contract with the Bills.

Davante Adams To The Raiders – The Green Bay Packers just recently lost their All-pro receiving weapon not even two weeks ago. The Packers and Adams came to a disagreement on his contract dating back to last summer, resulting in Green Bay placing the franchise tag on Adams. He then informed the team that he would no longer be playing on it. On the other hand, the Raiders were on the same page about his contract, coming to an agreement on a five year, $141 million contract. Last season, Adams recorded 123 receptions for over 1500 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Tyreek Hill To The Dolphins – Hill requested to leave and play in Miami. Hill’s explosiveness and big playmaking ability is something the Dolphins have not had in decades. Hill can take the top off of defenses since he is the fastest player on the field at all times, running a 9.98 second 100m dash in high school. The big play threat Hill brings will definitely boost this Miami offense. The last time a receiver has had three receiving touchdowns for the organization was back in 2003 on Thanksgiving day when Chris Chambers had a signature performance of five catches, 96 yards and three touchdowns in a 40-21 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Hill has had performances like this a number of times. Miami’s seasonal receiving record is owned by Mark Clayton with 1,389 yards in 1984. Back in 2018, Tyreek recorded 111 catches, 1,479 yards with the Chiefs. With the addition of Hill on the other side of Jaylen Waddle, the Dolphins should become an exciting offense to watch this upcoming season.
