Every NFL Team's Dream Free Agent Signing For 2016

If you accept that Von Miller won’t be let go by the Broncos, then the field to snap up the best free agents and talent on the market becomes an arms race. The NFL is not just a blood sport on the field, the opportunity to jump on players who can quickly plug gaps, offer depth and give your football team a different dimension doesn’t come around too often.

Those that stick solid to a formula will wait for the draft to solve most of their problems but getting experienced, hardened professionals will only accelerate a teams improvement. Teams that are rebuilding through youth like the Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans shouldn’t stick to a stubborn philosophy of solving all their problems in the draft because they still need veteran players to pave the way for younger talent. With College kids coming to the baptism of fire that is NFL football, the next generation will need to rely on those who've accumulated valuable experience throughout their careers.

There is a reason why a lot of these players haven’t been tied down. With their egos put into overdrive, and agents that tell them they're the best thing since sliced bread, they feel like a golden handshake is at the end of the rainbow. Sometimes this will pay off big time, but for others it can put them in an awkward position where they’re waiting to become an injury replacement. Winding down the contract is a players right, yet it remains very much a gamble.

So fresh after a season is done, fans, owners and commentators know exactly where everyone stands. The wins, losses, points for and points against illustrate how the 2015 season panned out and tells everyone how far some teams need to go. Here at TheSportster we’ve reviewed the NFL players on the open market and where each franchise needs to strengthen to gain that extra 1% edge missing from 2015.

1 Washington Redskins - Danny Trevathan

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

A quality linebacker can change the game for the Redskins. 25-year old Super Bowl winning player Danny Trevathan had 2 fumble recoveries in the big game and Jay Gruden would love to have someone of his talent giving the Redskins some teeth on the defensive end. The Kirk Cousins saga will be the biggest call of their off season, but without a game changer like Trevathan, then it won’t matter too much who they pick at QB.
