This NFL off-season is about to get interesting. The free-agency bonanza is set to kick off March 14, and it has the power to completely reshape teams and throw divisional power structures completely out of whack. Take, for example, the Super Bowl LII champions, the Philadelphia Eagles. They signed future key contributors and playoff stars in quarterback Nick Foles, receiver Alshon Jeffery, cornerback Patrick Robinson, pass rusher Chris Long, and running back LeGarrette Blount last year. Just about every team this year has a handful of big-impact starters of key role players set to become free agents, but a few teams are facing more uncertainty than others. The Ringer put together a list of the teams with the biggest question marks heading into free agency.
- Minnesota Vikings: The team must decide whether to go after one of the three starting-caliber free-agent quarterbacks that were on the roster in 2017 or pursue one of the many veterans about to hit the open market.
- Arizona Cardinals: They have zero quarterbacks under contract and a good number of defenders set to hit the open market.
- New England Patriots: Dependable left tackle Nate Solder is set to join Cameron Fleming and LaAdrian Waddle on the open market.
- New York Jets: What will the team do at the quarterback position?
- Los Angeles Rams: There are two major question marks: How much of its $41 million in cap space it can spare for 32-year-old center John Sullivan, and whether or not to make a long-term offer to receiver Sammy Watkins.
