NFL free agency tracker 2019: Live news updates, rumors, list of latest signings | NFL
While 2019 NFL free agency technically begins later this week with the start of the new league year, it realistically began Monday, when the legal tampering (forgive the oxymoron) period began. Starting March 11, teams are allowed to enter negotiations with 2019 free agents on contract agreements.
Among SN’s list of the best free agents available in 2019 are names like Le’Veon Bell, Earl Thomas, Nick Foles, Landon Collins, Trey Flowers and Mark Ingram. Other big names like Jadeveon Clowney and Demarcus Lawrence have been taken off the free-agent market via franchise tags.
All of the players available are either restricted free agents or unrestricted free agents. A restricted free agent may be subject to a qualifying offer. Unrestricted free agents have completed four or more accrued seasons. Upon expiration of his 2018 contract, an unrestricted free agent is free to sign with any team with no draft-choice compensation owed to his old team.
The NFL salary cap in 2018 is $188,200,000 per team. For a breakdown of salary-cap space each of the NFL’s 32 teams has to spend, head to OverTheCap.com. For a live tracker of 2019 NFL free-agent signings and rumors, you’re already in the right place.
