Where Top Receiver Free Agents Should Land

Posted by Javier Morales on 2/21/2017 6:45:42 AM

Free agency offers the chance for every NFL team to kick-start its roster improvements.

Every franchise wants to excel in the draft and build its roster over the long term for minimal outlay, but free agency can fast-track that process and give teams proven NFL commodities if they are willing to pay for them.

This article indicates which receivers some NFL teams should sign during the offseason.

DeSean Jackson to Buffalo

Beyond Sammy Watkins, the Bills have gotten inconsistent production from their wide receivers, and Washington's Jackson provides another presence on the outside capable of getting behind the defense. Jackson led the league with 579 yards on deep passes while ranking second with 16 deep receptions. Perhaps Jackson is even more important for the Bills if Tyrod Taylor returns as their starting quarterback, as he throws one of the better deep balls in the league. Regardless of signal-caller, Jackson has enough juice to stretch the field and create big plays after the catch.

Pierre Garcon to Pittsburgh

The Steelers have one of the top wide receivers in the NFL, but consistency from a No. 2 receiver is something they have lacked in recent years. Martavis Bryant has the straight-line speed to terrify opposing defenses, but he is coming off a season-long suspension, so how much faith should the Steelers have that he can contribute for a full season in 2017? Another option at the No. 2 spot was Sammie Coates, but while he led the league by averaging 20.7 yards per catch, he also led the league in drop rate, dropping 25.0 percent of the passes thrown his way. Garcon would add the needed consistency. He dropped just one of the 80 catchable passes thrown his way in 2016 for Washington, and he would be the perfect No. 2 opposite Antonio Brown.

Adam Thielen to Philadelphia

Thielen, who finished with 69 catches for 967 yards and five touchdowns while dropping only three passes, had a breakout season in 2016 with Minnesota. He was a reliable target for Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford, and that same short and intermediate reliability is a must for the Eagles' offense and QB Carson Wentz. Thielen, who's a restricted free agent, doesn't solve all Philadelphia's issues at the skill positions, but he can play the much-needed role of possession receiver as Wentz continues to develop as the Eagles' franchise quarterback.
