A lot of NFL players will be hitting the open market this spring, but who are the elite ones that can change a franchises direction almost instantly? Here’s our ranking of the top ten NFL free agents for the 2016 class:
#10 Jason Pierre-Paul, defensive end
2015 team: New York Giants
Jason Pierre-Paul returned to the Giants after the incident involving fireworks in July this season, and he was still able to make an impact on the Giants run defense. There’s a chance Pierre-Paul will only get better with his hand, but it may not be something that a team would put a lot of money into.
The one thing that makes Pierre-Paul’s hand injury so devastating on the sports side of things is that he can’t finish tackles like he used to in 2011 and 2012. Running backs seemed to be the biggest issue for Pierre-Paul, but you can bet he’ll work on getting better without doubt.
