The Chicago Bears slapped the franchise tag on their star wide receiver Allen Robinson this offseason. Robinson was ready to hit the free agency market and was projected to be the top wide receiver on the market.

Matthew Judon was a major signing for the New England Patriots this offseason. The Patriots needed more pass rushers and Judon will give New England a great boost at rushing a passer-by in 2021. Over his six-year career, Matthew Judon has registered 34.5 sacks.

Dak Prescott finally received his huge pay day from the Dallas Cowboys. Dallas needed to re-sign their man man before he hit the free agency market. If Prescott were to hit the market, he would've been the top free agent in 2021 and the Cowboys made the right decision to pay him what he's worth.


1) NFL Free Agent: Kenny Golladay, WR, New York Giants

The New York Giants needed to upgrade their wide receiver position this offseason and were able to do so by signing former Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay.

He was the top wide receiver in this year's free agency group and Daniel Jones will now have a true number one wide receiver. The New York Giants will now also know whether Daniel Jones is the right guy to lead their franchise into the future.
