Like everything else NFL-related, the list of free agents in 2018 is highlighted by quarterbacks. Five of the top 10 free agents this offseason were quarterbacks (based on salary from last year) as Drew Brees, Kirk Cousins, Sam Bradford, Mike Glennon and Jay Cutler hit the open market.

 

However, players like Brees and Le'Veon Bell — while technically through with their current contracts — will more than likely re-sign with their current teams. Many names on the list below will slowly be taken down as teams begin to strike deals with their top free agents ahead of the March 14 new year, when players are free to go anywhere they'd like.

 

Here is a list of the top NFL free agents available when the new league year starts in 2018.
