NFL Free Agency



Up and coming in the world of the NFL is free agency. At this point in the offseason teams sign and trade various players. Many players are cut from the team if the team and players are unable to make a deal. Players make an offer for a contract length and salary. If the team is unable to provide the salary the player wants they will be cut. In the case of Adrian Peterson the Vikings had no interest in keeping him. In this case if the offer from Peterson was to high the Vikings would drop him. Now that the Vikings have dropped Peterson, he is in free agency.

With very little news on free agency in the NFL at the moment, it is tough to say what is happening. There is currently over 100 top free agency players up for grabs by teams. Although the process is very similar to other sports like hockey, baseball, and basketball, NFL free agency can be very unpredictable. I am very excited to see what the NFL has in store for its next season. Until then, check out the Minnesota Wild! The NFL season maybe over for now but the Wild are generating an electric performance with a fan base that is just as loyal as any NFL fan!

  1. I don't know much about football but I always hear about the time of year when teams are switching players. I don't follow football so I didn't have a clue what it meant but reading this it makes sense.

  2. Im glad that we cut adrian peterson. He isnt worth a ton of money and hopefully we get someone good from free agency.

  3. This was very interesting to read! I agree with Carter that AP needed to be released. What do you expect the Vikings to do with the extra cap room this offseason? Will they try to meet the offensive line needs this offseason, or just in the draft? I hope they are willing to make some changes, because we are only a couple years away from making a deep playoff run.

  4. I think that we should've traded Peterson and got something for him rather than just releasing him.
