6 Best 2016 NFL Offensive Free Agents

1. Cordy Glenn

The Bills had the ninth best offensive line, according to Profootballfocus, and Glenn was a big reason why. He was one of the better tackles in the NFL in 2015 and has pretty been a steady performer since entering the league. He likely won’t hit the free agent market, the Bills will probably franchise him if they can’t get a deal done, but he’s a legit NFL left tackle that could be a free agent.

2. Kelechi Osemele

Osemele is one of the best guards in the NFL and proved he could play some left tackle to close out the 2015 season. He’s great against the run, and if teams believe he can play tackle over the course of a full season, he should make quite a bit of money.

3. Lamar Miller

Some may think Miller at four is a bit high but I think he’s the beast offensive weapon available. When he actually got touches in 2015, he did plenty of damage, but often times the Dolphins completely went away for him for no reason. He’s a 24-year-old running back with low mileage and has averaged 4.6 yards per carry in his career. If I needed a running back for 2016, I take a shot on Miller as a 300 touch running back.

4. Alshon Jeffery

Alshon Jeffery is a legitimate number one receiver and probaly one of the 10 to 15 best in the NFL. As good as he might be, he couldn’t seem to stay on the field in 2015. One year of injuries is a bit much to knock someone down for, but I don’t know how tough of an NFL player he is. I’d rather go after someone like Mohamed Sanu than pay Jeffery like a top 10 receiver. I want to rank him higher because I really do adore him but I can’t do it.

5. Doug Martin

I like Doug Martin a lot but he’s a running back coming off a huge year after two pretty horrible injury-plagued seasons. He had plenty of big runs in 2015, but he’s nowhere near as fast or as explosive as Lamar Miller. There were plenty of times he would break off a big run and just run out gas. He’s a good running back but maybe not worth the price it’s going to cost.

6. Richie Incognito

After falling off the map for about two and a half years, Incognito came back in a huge way. He was arguably the best guard in the NFL despite his absence from the NFL. He will be 33-years-old in 2016 but he proved that he was a good as ever in his return the NFL. He’ll probably get a pretty affordable two to three-year deal.

Other offensive linemen worthy of top 10: Kelvin Beachum, Russell Okung, Evan Mathis, etc.

Others to consider: Marvin Jones, Mohamed Sanu, C.J. Anderson, Matt ForteSam Bradford, Kirk Cousins
