The NFL has no offseason in terms of news and moves and free agency is just around the corner. Unrestricted free agents can officially begin talking to teams on March 15th in the negotiation window the league established. They cannot sign a deal until March 17th, but numerous deals are all but completed in that window. Teams and agents have already been talking on the down low, but on March 15th, it comes out into the light.

The quarterback position isn’t flush with talent in free agency, but there will still be plenty of moves made. The biggest free agent is Dak Prescott, but the odds of him moving on from the Dallas Cowboys are long. But, there are a few free agents who will impact the 2021 season, including Jameis Winston, Mitchell Trubisky, Andy Dalton, Alex Smith, and Ryan Fitzpatrick. All could be sought after as players who could compete for a starting job this season.

Below is a full list of free agents, sortable by name, old team, and new team. We’ll update as news arrives on the various players.
