With free agency nearing, there will be many coveted free agents. Topping the list will be QB Derek Carr who was released by Las Vegas on Tuesday, February 14th. 

However, teams like the Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and San Francisco 49ers are attempting to sign players to make a run at the trophy. 

Teams like the Bears, who had the worst record of all teams, will have the most money to spend of any team, with 104 million dollars, and they also own the number pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. However, teams are calling the Bears’ offices in Chicago with monstrous offers for the #1 overall pick. With Bryce Young and CJ Stroud on the line. The Bears could get 3 or even 4 first round picks.
