The NFL offseason is officially upon us and teams will start bringing in free agents for workouts. There are clearly more defensive options this year, but there are still interesting offensive weapons out there for grabs. There are a certain few that are above the rest:

10. Jay Ajayi RB/ CJ Anderson RB

These two running backs are tied for tenth because neither could be left off the top ten. Anderson is lower on most lists, but in the playoffs and Super Bowl, he proved that he still has the “it” factor and can be a starter for a team in need. Jay Ajayi tore his ACL and this is a nasty injury for runners. Luckily he is expected to heal and bounce back for a good season.

9. Golden Tate WR

There were high hopes for Tate to be the guy to lead the receivers in Philly, but he never seemed to click well with either quarterback. It might be best for him to leave the Eagles and try again with a new team. He should have better success in 2019.

8. Ja’Wuan James OT

James could have had a better season if it wasn’t for a nagging knee injury. At 27, he is young enough to heal and come back in 2019 at full throttle.

7. Matt Paradis C

At 30, Paradis has only missed seven games in his career and they were all at the end of 2018. He still has several years left playing at a high level.

6. Mark Ingram RB

Ingram has been constantly fighting for a fulltime lead job in New Orleans, and with Kamara as the starter, he will want to get a chance to be a featured back for a team.

5. Eric Ebron TE

With Andrew Luck throwing to him, Ebron had a comeback season of his own. He will likely get a big payday after hauling in 13 touchdowns last year.

4. Trent Brown OT

Brown was moved to the left tackle hole and played well enough to earn a Pro Bowl selection. He is still young at 26 and will likely get a giant check.

 

3. Nick Foles QB

He isn’t the best quarterback, but Foles will draw much interest this offseason. He has the playoff magic and leadership that teams will pay for though.

2. Kareem Hunt RB

2019 seems like the year of the running backs as two top talents are to be available and both have some baggage. Hunt is still under investigation from his domestic violence case. If he gets the green light to be eligible to be signed, he will be looking to win Comeback Player of the Year.

1.Le’veon Bell RB

Bell has tons of baggage with him as a diva. He missed all of 2018, but that just means he is well-rested and fresh. Several teams are already trying to get in on the lottery for a Pro Bowl-level featured back.
