The 2022 free agency season kicks off March 16 at 4 p.m. ET, which is the start of the 2022 NFL league year. Free agency will officially end on April 22nd. As usual, there are plenty of talented players set for free agency this off season, but much of that talent will stick with their current teams due to re-signing or getting the franchise tag. Last season we saw the bulk of the top free agents stick around, but as you get down the rankings, the odds of a player moving on go up.

It would truly be an upset to see Davante Adams, Chris Godwin, Terron Armstead, and many of the true studs make it to free agency, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of good players looking to move on for better opportunities or a higher paycheck or both.

Here is a countdown of our top-150 available free agents heading into the 2022 league year.
