These days if you stand still in the NFL and free agency you will get left behind very quickly. With free agency opening you should see a lot of moves by teams. It looks like the New York Jets and Oakland Raiders could be major players in free agency. The Oakland Raiders continue to struggle as a franchise and are looking towards free agency as a way to build their team.
For the New York Jets they want to get back to being a team people talk about in a positive light. They should also be big players in free agency. I still think they have quarterback issues that must be solved. Until this is done the Jets probably will continue to struggle. Coach Rex Ryan needs a good year or he could be looking for a new job.
Many times, free agency can turn a franchise around quickly. It also can have the opposite effect as well. Choosing the right people for your team can sometimes be a tough call. A wrong decision can set you back many years as a franchise. Both the Jets and Raiders have cap space and should do well in free agency.
