2016 NFL Free Agents

Pro Football Rumors’ up-to-date list of 2016 NFL free agents is below. These are players who are eligible for restricted or unrestricted free agency after the 2015 season. The player’s 2016 age is in parentheses. Players are generally sorted by the position at which they played most in ’15, or the position at which their most recent team listed them.

Players who finished the 2015 season on an NFL roster but don’t have a contract for 2016 are listed below, along with a few other notable free agents who didn’t finish the 2015 season on an NFL roster, and several players who have been cut since the season ended.

Players eligible for restricted free agency are marked with (R), while non-exclusive franchise and transition players will be marked with (F) and (T) respectively. Exclusive rights free agents are not included. All other free agents are assumed to be unrestricted.

  1. aarongill

    Who will get tagged? I thought josh Gordon is t a free agent because suspended years don’t count?

    • Luke Adams

      You’re right, thanks. I had a few suspended guys in here before taking them out (Aldon Smith, Frank Alexander, etc.). Must have missed Gordon.

      As for who will get tagged, I’d say Von Miller, Josh Norman, Muhammad Wilkerson, Alshon Jeffery, and a handful of others will be the top candidates. I expect we’ll take a closer look at this within the next few weeks.

  2. aarongill

    Isn’t Aldon smith supposed to be on the list also?

  3. hughcapet987

    There are just a handful I would take a chance at: M. Wilkerson DE, Eric Berry DB, Josh Norman DB, Von Miller LB, Ashlon Jeffrey WR, and QB Brock Osweiler. These are Dallas Cowboy needs.

    • syrorange

      lol
