The 2020 NFL free agent class includes Jadeveon Clowney, Dak Prescott, and Tom Brady.

We ranked the best players who hit the open market and we’re keeping track of their new deals.

rThe 2020 NFL free agent market is loaded with big names — and a surprising number of veteran quarterbacks. Players ranging from Marcus Mariota to Dak Prescott to Tom Brady all headed into this offseason with expiring contracts.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though. The free agent class of 2020 is stacked from top to bottom.

There were plenty of rumors in advance of the official start to the 2020 league year on March 18. At that point, we knew what was next for a majority of the stars. Several of the NFL’s top free agents won’t change addresses as their current teams happily re-signed them, either through long-term contracts or the one-year franchise tag. Others have found new homes — or will eventually.

We took this year’s 600+ free agents and boiled them down to the top 100. These rankings don’t just reflect talent, but also age and potential. The list will be updated with signings and some new candidates, depending on which veterans get released as the offseason wears on.
