  18. A couple of weeks ago, prior to the free agency period article, I wrote an article on this year's top 10 free agents as can be found here. Now that all have been signed, I'll review my prediction and the player's actual destination, and what that means for the landscape of NFLHC. 1. QB Thomas Wheeler 6-1 208 6 Florida State [Pocket] 93 Former Team: Kansas City Chiefs Predicted New Team: Washington Redskins Actual New Team: Tennessee Titans Wheeler joins his 3rd team after 2 years playing for the Giants and 4 for the Chiefs. Wheeler has been a very up-and-down QB throughout his career but was still highly coveted in free agency. He is said to have chosen the Titans over the next closest suitor, the Buffalo Bills, because their offer had "just the right amount of money per year for a star QB." The contract: 3 years, $64.5 million, $45 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: The Titans should become immediate contenders in the AFC. The AFC is notoriously not a great conference, but with the Titans now likely on the upswing they'll reside in the conference's toughest division along with last year's #1 seed Jacksonville Jaguars (who got better themselves!) and the Indianapolis Colts. With lots of young talent on this Titans squad the projections for this team are skyhigh, with many pundits picking this team to the Super Bowl. I think it'll take Wheeler the first year of his contract to gel before the Titans become real contenders to win it all. 2. DE Ron Rice 6-6 275 5 Michigan [Blitz] 93 Former Team: Carolina Panthers Predicted New Team: Jacksonville Jaguars Actual New Team: Jacksonville Jaguars One of my few correct predictions! Rice was the Jaguars' clearest target and joins the Jags after 5 years playing in Carolina. The bidding was mainly between the Patriots, Jaguars, and Chiefs, with the latter two the clearest two competitors. With both offering similar contracts, Rice ended up choosing Jacksonville as he reportedly wanted to continue playing for a winning team, and didn't believe that the Chiefs would be contenders this year after losing Thomas Wheeler. Rice ended up signing by far the largest contract for a DE, and defensive player, in NFLHC history. The contract: 5 years, $77 million, $71 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: Last year's AFC #1 seed gets even better, and they could use the help with the Titans likely to be much better next year and the Texans improving with Alex Leshoure at the helm. The Jags and their strange trick play offense also added Gary Faneca via trade, so this team is looking utterly ridiculous for 2021 at present moment. After a disappointing playoff showing in their second ever playoff appearance (they're 0-2 all-time with both losses coming against Oakland), Jags GM Soluna was clearly looking to improve the team to try to bring the first ever playoff victory and perhaps Lombardi Trophy to Jacksonville in 2021. 3. SS R.C. Rone 6-1 204 7 Oklahoma State [Zone Coverage] 94 Former Team: Atlanta Falcons Predicted New Team: Kansas City Chiefs Actual New Team: Cincinnati Bengals The Falcons reportedly tried to hold on to Rone, but their cap space was far too limiting and they fell out of the bidding early. The two highest bidders early ended up being the Titans and Redskins. Rone was reportedly ready to sign with Washington on his visit there but received an offer from the Bengals soon before he was going to sign on the dotted line. He took a visit to Cincinnati, loved it, (and the money they offered him), and Cincinnati got their upgrade to Calvin Celestin. The contract: 3 years, $51 million, $51 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: Well, the Bengals did end up losing some of their talent, but they managed to bring in the same amount of players in the 90s OVR that they started with going into the offseason. Depending on how strong the AFC North ends up being this year, the Bengals could be possible contenders to win their division, but with the offense likely taking a step back following some other losses I think this team will struggle a bit. Rone might be better help towards a Bengals playoff berth in year 2 or 3 of this contract depending on how the team ends up bringing in reinforcements. 4. OT Blake Pile 6-5 311 5 USC [Run Blocking] 93 Former Team: Cincinnati Bengals Predicted New Team: Cincinnati Bengals Actual New Team: Cincinnati Bengals I figured the Bengals would make Pile their priority among the players lost, and that ended up being the case as Pile ended up returning to the Jungle. The Redskins and Chargers were also in on the bidding reportedly, but Pile is said to have felt that neither of those teams were closer to winning a Super Bowl than Cincinnati and he didn't want to uproot his family for no reason, as his main goal is winning a Super Bowl ring. The contract: 3 years, $55 million, $47 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: Pile's return will bring continue stability in a Bengals offense that probably needs it. With Joel King coming into the ever-important 3rd year as QB, he'll need all the help on offense he can get. I'm still not a fan of what Cincinnati is looking like at present moment, but bringing back Pile while signing Rone undoubtedly improves this team. Pile's contract is also humongous, but with little impact talent coming up for new contracts outside of Ron Thomas that's unlikely to affect the team in the near future. 5. WR Rodney Montgomery 6-0 185 6 LSU [Target] 94 Former Team: Cincinnati Bengals Predicted New Team: Buffalo Bills Actual New Team: Kansas City Chiefs Montgomery's new team is the first one on this list that actually surprised me. The bidding was constrained to 4 main teams: the Bengals, Patriots, Chiefs, and surprise bidders (though not so surprising after trading Gary Faneca) the Seahawks. The bidding was close between the Patriots and Chiefs but Montgomery was mainly focused on the amount of money he'd receive in his new contract and chose a 4/56 offer from the Chiefs over a 4/55 offer from the Patriots. The contract: 4 years, $56 million, $50 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: Probably not that much. Since the team did lose Thomas Wheeler, Montgomery becomes this team's only non-specialist player in the 90s overall. And as a receiver, that's much less impactful for a team than having a QB in the 90s overall. The team will likely take a step back, but perhaps GM Nmize0 feels that Montgomery can help break in this team's new QB, whether that's incumbent backup Erasmus McCready or someone from the draft. If he's still as great as he is now in year 3 and 4 of this contract, this signing becomes more impactful, but for now Montgomery will likely be putting up stats on a losing team. 6. OT Walter Adair 6-1 310 5 Army [Run Blocking] 93 Former Team: Seattle Seahawks Predicted New Team: Washington Redskins Actual New Team: Washington Redskins Well, I've gotten #2, #4, and #6 right so far. The only two main bidders for Adair ended up being Washington and the Cardinals, though the Steelers reportedly did have an offer in that wasn't as close in total value. The Cardinals weren't willing to guarantee as much of his contract as the Redskins, so Adair ended up in Washington. The contract: 5 years, $68 million, $58 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: This is the first contract I'd say might be a bit steep, as 5 years seems like a bit of a risk for a guy who's never even seen a Pro Bowl. That said, similarly to Kansas City, this signing becomes the team's only non-specialist player in the 90s overall, which should help out ???? at QB in 2021. This team very well might be tanking again, though, so it could be a couple of seasons until this pays dividends and even then Adair could possibly be on the downswing. I don't hate it by any means, but Washington's lack of other impact free agent activity leaves this team in a position that isn't so great, in my opinion. 7. ILB Zion Adakwa 6-2 224 4 Illinois [Mike] 89 Former Team: New York Jets Predicted New Team: Washington Redskins Actual New Team: Seattle Seahawks There were a lot of teams in on the bidding for Adakwa. The Jets reportedly tried bringing him back but didn't have the cap space to do so. Teams in on the Adakwa bidding included the Patriots, Jaguars, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Packers, and Seahawks, with the latter three being the main bidders. In the end, Adakwa was reportedly coaxed by former Jets teammates CB John Queen and WR Jim Umenyiora to sign in Seattle. The contract: 4 years, $46 million, $46 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: Seattle's in an interesting spot; after trading away star WR Gary Faneca and former first round draft pick CB Corey Quinn, Seattle has reloaded with draft picks while clearing cap space. They've spent a lot of it here, bringing in Adakwa to pair with Malcolm Douglas-Scott to form probably the league's most feared ILB duo. It's not going to be easy to run up the middle on Seattle with these two and Christian Okonkwo manning the middle. With that said, without a first rounder, Seattle's success still hinges on Jarius Jones and crew, and that will be harder without Faneca. I'm not sure I see this team improving quite yet, but it depends on how well their slew of mid-round picks pan out. 8. WR Charlie Paul 5-9 163 5 Maryland [Target] 86 Former Team: New York Jets Predicted New Team: Los Angeles Chargers Actual New Team: Pittsburgh Steelers Paul is the only free agent on the list to have received very few (just two) offers as his APY requirements scared most potential bidders who would have been interested off of the process. After trading away Anthony McCardell, the Steelers were in the market for a consistent player to line up next to Samuel Jolley, and Charlie Paul is a solid signing in that regard as he can slot right in as the #1 or #2 receiver depending on matchups. The contract: 1 year, $7.5 million, $7.5 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: This contract seems pretty low, but it is only a one year deal as most potentially interested teams were in on the Rodney Montgomery bidding, anyway. The Steelers are potential favorites for the AFC North crown next year, as either Paul Davenport or Rob Corp will try to lead this team to their first ever playoff berth in 2021. I think after their trade with the Bucs and this signing, they may be in position to go for it. With the Ravens having a question mark at QB with Reggie Watkins almost certainly holding out and Brett Fisher unproven, this may be Pittsburgh's time to strike for the crown. 9. DE Steven Jordan 6-7 279 6 Iowa State [Contain] 86 Former Team: Seattle Seahawks Predicted New Team: Minnesota Vikings Actual New Team: Washington Redskins Of the three free agents I predicted the 'Skins to sign, they only signed one. And then they went after one I figured they wouldn't. In fact, none of the three teams that ended up pursuing him were on my radar for him at all. The main suitors were Washington, the Browns, and the Cowboys, but Jordan wanted to cash in on his payday while he could and ends up in Washington. The contract: 4 years, $32 million, $18 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: This deal is relatively reasonable for Washington, as Jordan becomes easily cuttable in years 3 and 4 of the contract. As I mentioned before, I don't think that the Redskins are in much position to be competitive any time soon so I think the signing of Jordan will have a negligible impact on NFLHC as a whole, although he might be around by the time Washington is competitive again if he lives up to this contract. He might be a one-year wonder, though, so it's tough to say for certain. Maybe I'm pessimistic, but I'm leaning towards it being difficult for him to live up to his new deal. 10. K Cliff Chamblin 6-4 191 6 LSU [Power] 97 Former Team: Los Angeles Rams Predicted New Team: Chicago Bears Actual New Team: Arizona Cardinals The Cardinals have now made the two most impactful signings of a specialist in NFLHC history, as Cliff Chamblin joins Steve Noonan in Arizona's special teams unit. Chamblin made it clear he would sign with whichever team gave him the most money, and while reports were that the competition was mostly between the Browns, 49ers, and Bears at first, the Cardinals swooped in last second, giving Chamblin a 4-year deal and offering the most total money. That was enough to sell him. The contract: 4 years, $28 million, $21 million guaranteed This signing's impact on NFLHC in 2021: Even after adding Taylor Rodriguez, I don't quite see the Cardinals being competitive in 2021 as of yet. In that sense, this signing doesn't have much impact yet. By 2022 Arizona might be ready to start approaching a playoff berth, and Chamblin is likely to remain on the team for all four years of this contract, so there's that. However, the larger impact is on the Rams who now have a potential black hole at kicker, which could largely hurt a team that many thought was the best in NFLHC last season. We'll see what kind of moves LA makes at the position, but as of now this could definitely hurt. FA Winners and Losers: Winners: Jacksonville Jaguars: The Jaguars got better by adding Ron Rice and losing no one of value, while among their direct competitors only the Titans really got better. Rice adds the pass rush element this team was sorely lacking last year and it's tough to see any huge holes on this team anymore. Tennessee Titans: They got their QB. It was going to be tough to add a QB to fill that fits with what seems to be this team's timeline in the draft, and in that sense bringing in Wheeler is huge. Washington Redskins: I trashed their signings, but at the end of the day they still likely got better as a result of their deals and don't lose anyone who matters significantly to the team. Losers: Cincinnati Bengals: They brought back Pile and brought in another impact free agent in Rone. Even though they lose Montgomery, Adrian Jankowski is good enough to be the team's #1 receiver moving forward. Someone else will have to be brought in to help out Joel King after they also lost Tony DeMarco, however, and bringing back Pile and bringing in Rone isn't enough to offset the total sum of their losses (and also, having to overpay Pile by a significant amount compared to what he probably could have been given during re-signings doesn't help). New York Jets: The team got worse (independently of trading) while the rest of the conference, for the most part, got better. That doesn't bode well for the team's continued success. However, their AFC East rivals failing to sign anyone any major free agents can be counted as a win. Indianapolis Colts: This team continues to stagnate in the AFC South, and with both of their direct rivals now getting significant upgrades while Indy can't improve due to cap constrains, they could be in trouble in 2021. A potential playoff miss for the first time in a while could be looming.
  19. ouch rough game for Milner
  20. The signings are in (unless you're the Bengals), the rejections are in, and the players are about to hit the market. These are, in my opinion, the top 10 players that are hitting the market in the first NFLHC free agency where multiple actual good players will be on the market. I would say that the top 7 are the definitive top players on the market, while the other 3 are the most intriguing options that are all on a lower tier. The first player ranked is the only QB as he is the only free agent QB I'd project to 100% definitely start on a team in 2021. 1. QB Thomas Wheeler 6-1 208 6 Florida State [Pocket] 93 Former Team: Kansas City Chiefs The former Giant and only player to start the majority of games in each of the Chiefs' first 4 seasons, the hot-and-cold Wheeler rejected a contract offer from the Chiefs. The top QB on the market by far, he is the best player in this free agency class by sheer virtue of being a QB, though he's never made a Pro Bowl or All-Pro team. He is seemingly upset with the direction the front office has taken, and after getting the tag last offseason he rejected a deal from the team. The rumor mill from his camp is that he's done with GM Nmize and wants a new opportunity. He will certainly get a ton of money from teams trying to lure him in, and with a few teams having question marks at the QB position right now, I'd say the main contenders to be his new team are the Bills, Patriots, Cardinals, Redskins, and Titans, with the Chiefs still remaining a possibility. Predicted 2021 team: Washington Redskins The two main contenders for Wheeler's services are probably the Redskins, as at present moment they have $56 million in cap room remaining. All other contenders for Wheeler have under $30 million in cap room with the exception of the Chiefs. I believe the Redskins will bid on par with the Chiefs and Wheeler will be more than happy to choose to go to Washington and start throwing to Sam Hiller-Weeden and crew. He could be the first near-elite QB in NFLHC to change teams through free agency as he potentially heads to his third team. UPDATE: as I was writing this the Cardinals traded for Taylor Rodriguez, so he's probably not going there. 2. DE Ron Rice 6-6 275 5 Michigan [Blitz] 93 Former Team: Carolina Panthers Rice is one of the top DEs in the league, as he has made the Pro Bowl in each of the last three seasons. Also having racked up double-digit sacks in each of the last three years, Rice had his best season yet in 2020 with 13.5 sacks, 2 FF, 1 FR, and just for some bonus fun an interception. He was a large part of the reason Carolina had a top 10 defense in 2020, but with the Panthers having just $12.25 million in cap remaining there's almost no way they could afford to retain him, and unsurprisingly he has rejected their offers to re-sign and elected to hit the open market. The main contenders for his services are probably the Redskins (as they will be for every player on this list), Jaguars, Cardinals, Vikings, and Bengals. Predicted 2021 team: Jacksonville Jaguars Soluna has $42 million in cap room to play with. The Bengals will be too focused on retaining their own players they've lost (more to come on that later), the Redskins could be too tied up in battles for other players, and the Cardinals don't have nearly as much cap room to play with. I think the Redskins are a legitimate possibility, however, depending on how much focus they put on acquiring Rice vs. Wheeler. The Vikings are a definite possibility as well with around $30 million in cap to play with and a major hole at DE. I think the race will be tight between the Vikings and Jaguars, and Soluna will put most of his effort into acquiring Rice. However, I think the Jaguars can afford him more and Soluna will end up on top of the battle. 3. SS R.C. Rone 6-1 204 7 Oklahoma State [Zone Coverage] 94 Former Team: Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl III MVP and one part of the Falcons' 3-headed monster secondary, Rone is hitting the open market for the first time. A Pro Bowler in 2014, 2016, 2018, and 2019, and an All-Pro in 2014 and 2016, Rone has shown no signs of falling off as he tallied 5 interceptions and 2 FF this past season. The Falcons were unfortunately not in a good cap situation, and forced to choose between RB Akili Wallace and Rone they opted to tag Wallace. With not nearly enough left to give Rone his market worth, Rone has decided to leave Atlanta for the first time. The main contenders for his services are the Redskins, Bengals, Bears, and Chiefs. Projected 2021 team: Kansas City Chiefs The Chiefs have to spend the money they can't on Wheeler somewhere. Their current SS are pretty bad, and incumbent starter Mark Brown has regressed significantly and is thinking of retiring. The Chiefs are desperate for elite players at this point and Rone offers that, at the very least. You just have to hope you're not paying for the downswing of his career. I think the Bears and possibly Redskins could put up significant competition for him, as both teams aren't very strong at SS. The Bears spent a 4th round pick on Jeremiah Joseph this past draft so they may elect to focus elsewhere. The Redskins can't just buy every top free agent, and the Bengals will probably be too focused on their own free agents to focus on filling their SS hole with an elite player like Rone (they may try to just bring Calvin Celestin back). 4. OT Blake Pile 6-5 311 5 USC [Run Blocking] 93 Former Team: Cincinnati Bengals Pile, a Pro Bowler in 2016 and 2018, regressed -1 this past season and that is why the Bengals elected to not re-sign him. All jokes aside, Pile has been a solid LT for a while now. The Bengals do have a pretty solid amount of cap space left to bring back their franchise LT, and of all the free agents they've lost I think he has to be the priority. WR can be slightly ignored due to the emergence of Adrian Jankowski. Outside of the Bengals bringing him back, the other main contenders are probably the Redskins who could use talent literally anywhere and the Titans who could use an upgade along the offensive line. Predicted 2021 team: Cincinnati Bengals The Bengals will make it a priority to bring back at least one of their guys, and I think Pile is probably the player they'll want back the most. It's as simple as that. 5. WR Rodney Montgomery 6-0 185 6 LSU [Target] 94 Former Team: Cincinnati Bengals Montgomery spent 5 seasons in Miami before being traded in a cap dump where the Bengals also managed to get rid of Jamal Brunell - some would call that a double win. A Pro Bowler in 2015, 2016, 2018, and 2019, Montgomery had a decent season though possibly down by his standards as he moved from catching balls from Brian Brown to Joel King. He put up 81 catches for 1109 yards and 12 TD with 5 drops, a pretty decent statline for a #1 receiver. The Bengals might want him back, but I don't think their focus will be on him (as I indicated above). The main contenders for his services should be the Vikings, Bengals, Redskins, Chiefs, Jaguars, and Bills. Projected 2021 team: Buffalo Bills The Chiefs re-signed their mediocre receivers and might choose to focus their cap elsewhere. The Bengals and Vikings should be in the running, and the Bills may have an outside shot if they want to upgrade their receivers, but ultimately Washington and Jacksonville have the most cap room to play with. The Jaguars drafted Raheem Robinson in last year's first round and Washington drafted Sam Hiller-Weeden. Robinson is obviously better, and the Redskins receiving core is nowhere near as deep. The Redskins could commit a bunch of money to Wheeler, so Montgomery to the Bills seems like a realistic possibility. 6. OT Walter Adair 6-1 310 5 Army [Run Blocking] 93 Former Team: Seattle Seahawks Adair is a relative unknown quantity as he is an offensive tackle who's never made a Pro Bowl or All-Pro and wasn't a first round pick, so most have no reason to have ever heard of him. That said, he's hit 93 overall so he can't be that bad. The Seahawks might have some interest in bringing him back, and they have a solid amount of cap room, but ultimately I feel they won't be able to afford him on the open market. While OT isn't a general need across NFLHC, and he's probably the 2nd best OT on the market, teams like the Bengals (if they can't bring back Pile), Redskins, Cardinals, Chargers, and Titans could also show interest. Projected 2021 Team: Washington Redskins Your 2021 free agency all-stars: the Washington Redskins! I mean, when you have $93 million in cap to spend and it doesn't roll over you have to spend it somewhere. Washington's current starting tackles are OT Tom Scott 6-4 300 5 Auburn [Run Blocking] 83 and OT John Marchetti 6-4 320 6 North Carolina [Pass Blocking] 80, which unsurprisingly led to the team having the 29th ranked offensive line in NFLHC last year. If you're going to bring in Wheeler, you should try to protect him, right? 7. ILB Zion Adakwa 6-2 224 4 Illinois [Mike] 89 Former Team: New York Jets Adakwa has been the Jets' starting ILB for the past 4 seasons, and is also the first player to appear taken outside of the top 64 picks. Adakwa has been a rock in the middle for a team that has had a solidly above average defense over that time. I won't give away my free agency plans in this article, but it's relatively obvious that it will be difficult for us to bring him back with our current amount of cap room. Outside of the possibility of him coming back to the Jets, the main contenders should be the Redskins, Cardinals, Titans, and Bills. Projected 2021 team: Washington Redskins This is the last guy I project to the Redskins, I promise. The Cardinals and Titans already have decent ILBs and don't have the most cap space so I find it tough to see Adakwa going to either. The Bills are the most realistic other option for Adakwa to hit up as they have a decent chunk of space and a hole at the position. That said, I'm blinding myself to the possibility of him leaving for another team in-division and brightfalls has expressed significant interest in Adakwa over the years and in the shoutbox once he heard Adakwa was a free agent, which leads me to believe the possibility of him going there is high anyway. 8. WR Charlie Paul 5-9 163 5 Maryland [Target] 86 Former Team: New York Jets The second consecutive Jets player on this list, Paul has been a starter in New York ever since Week 4 of the 2016 season. He's put up two consecutive 1,000 yard seasons as a WR2 and led the Jets in receiving in 2020 due to injuries to Paul Howell's injury problems. A durable player, Paul regressed to -2 this past offseason as he led the league in drops with 11. That said, Charlie Paul is a reliable WR2 that most teams would love to slide in at that slot. The main contenders for his services should be the Redskins (assuming they don't sign Montgomery), Chargers, Vikings, Bills, Bengals, and Patriots. Projected 2021 team: Los Angeles Chargers The competition should be decent for Paul. I don't think the Redskins will end up with him, and I think any of the other teams listed could use a good WR2. In the case of all the teams but the Bengals and Patriots I actually think he should slide in as WR1. I lean to the Chargers here as they could use some help for Matty Swift. The Bills, Patriots, Vikings, and Bengals are all realistic possibilities however and it wouldn't be surprising to see him go to any of those teams. 9. DE Steven Jordan 6-7 279 6 Iowa State [Contain] 86 Former Team: Seattle Seahawks A 2015 UDFA signed by the Giants, Jordan came into the league as a 68 overall rookie. He has started for the Seahawks for 5 seasons, but was kind of unknown. And for good reason, as his career high for sacks coming into the 2020 season was 4. However, in his contract year Jordan turned it on and tallied 11 sacks, 3 FF, and 1 FR while going +3 in his progressions. He rejected a deal to return to Seattle as he felt he was being lowballed. Out on the open market, he'll be a good second option for teams that lose out on the Ron Rice race. His main contenders should be the Seahawks attempting to bring him back, Jaguars, Cardinals, Vikings, and Bengals. Projected 2021 team: Minnesota Vikings I think the Vikings and Seahawks will be the main bidders for Jordan, but he'll ultimately go to Minnesota. Minnesota has more cap room to play with and a serious, serious hole at DE. With how hard it can be to find DEs in the draft, it's much easier to fill one of the spots with a player like Jordan and worry about the rest later. I wouldn't doubt the Seahawks being a serious possibility for him to go back to, however. 10. K Cliff Chamblin 6-4 191 6 LSU [Power] 97 Former Team: Los Angeles Rams Surprisingly, Chamblin is not the UDFA from the 2015 draft on this list, as he was taken by the Rams with the 115th pick in the 5th round of the 2015 NFLHC Draft. Chamblin chose a good time to hit free agency, as before this season he'd only made the Pro Bowl in 2015; this year, he made his second Pro Bowl and added his first All-Pro selection. Chamblin is extremely likely to get the largest contract for a specialist in NFLHC history. The Rams have $14 million in cap space, so there is a definite possibility that he comes back to LA. Outside of the Rams, his main suitors should be the Redskins, Vikings, 49ers, Browns, Seahawks, Bears, and Bills. You'll notice that rather than the teams with the most cap space, these are (mostly) the teams with the worst kickers last season. Projected 2021 team: Chicago Bears Honestly, just draw a team out of a hat. That said, the Bears have the best combination of most cap room they'll find it tough to spend in this free agency (besides the Redskins, but enough with projecting them to sign players). GM stormstopper certainly knows the importance of special teams, and I think he might be willing to open up his checkbook to get Chamblin to Chicago.
