Free Agent Rumors: Jeffery, Kaepernick, QBs

Free agent Alshon Jeffery is looking to sign with a contender, the wide receiver tells ESPN’s Josina Anderson. He also says he doesn’t have any beef with the Bears.

I don’t have any hard feelings towards the Bears — it’s all love,” Jeffery said. “Whatever the next chapter is, I’m ready for it. I’m looking at the teams that obviously need a wide receiver, but also put me in the best situation to win a championship right now. I also want to see what other free agents may be attracted to the same teams I’ll be looking at. That can help that goal.”

On Thursday morning, we learned that there are four teams in the lead for Jeffery’s services. Due to his earning power, we have Jeffery ranked high on our list of Top 50 Free Agents.

The latest free agency rumors:

  • Colin Kaepernick says he’ll stand for the National Anthem in 2017 and that’s good news for his market. Several teams tell Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (on Twitter) they would have completely ruled out signing him if he continued his stance.
  • The Falcons, Broncos, Vikings, Lions, Colts, Seahawks, and Jaguars will be making a run at the top three or four guards available in free agency, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports tweets. Robinson doesn’t name names, but I consider Kevin Zeitler, T.J. Lang, Ronald Leary, and Larry Warford to be the four best guards on the board. For the Falcons and Seahawks, price will be a factor and neither team will engage in a bidding war (Twitter link).
  • The Cowboys, Ravens, Colts, and Eagles are doing homework on backup quarterbacks, Robinson tweets. In the case of the Eagles, they’re probably researching potential replacements for Chase Daniel as he garners trade interest. The Cowboys, of course, are planning for life without Tony Romo.

    Would never happen but man I’d love to see Jeffery across from Antonio Brown. Add Rogers in the slot with Coates/Bryant as your 4th WR and Ladarius Green as your TE. Would be nightmare matchups

    If Jeffrey’s suitors are the Eagles, Titans, 49ers, and Bears, and he’s looking to sign with a contender, he’s going to have to wait to see if any other team shows some interest.

        Eagles have lot of issues to fix this offseason but Titans i’m going to be a great wildcard contender all season. Couple of good draft picks and there a playoff team in my eyes

      Amongst those teams, Titans would be the best spot depending on if Mariota returns to form. Say what you will about the AFC South (it sucks, and I’m a Jags fan), but they’ve got a good young team building up. Sucks that Mariota suffered such a serious injury, but if he can play back to his normal form, the Titans will have a good team on paper.

        I agree that the titans look like the best up and comers, but I don’t think they’re Super Bowl contenders yet. Jeffrey would help if he can stay on the field.

      Since when do the Packers spend money in free agency? They always draft their guys.

    Add TJ Lang to the falcons O-line and freeman will run track meets every game
