The new NFL season is about to officially begin. There have already been blockbuster trades like Matthew Stafford to the LA Rams for Jared Goff and picks. Moreover, there have been some big free-agent signings like JJ Watt to the Arizona Cardinals. Then, there’s the chatter on the block with Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson, and Jimmy Garoppolo possibly getting traded. It’s going to a wild off-season for QBs. In the midst of all the madness, here are some under-the-radar NFL free agents who can help any team.

CB Troy Hill

At 30 years old, Hill is by no means a high-commodity on the market. However, what he does bring, can boost any teams secondary. Hill a physical, smart, and ball-hawking corner. He’s been with LA since 2015. Additionally, in 70 games (39 starts), Hill totaled 212 tackles, one sack, three fumble recoveries, and seven interceptions (two were returned for TDs). Many teams could use a guy like this in their secondary without breaking the bank.

Hill can make it happen in the secondary

S Keanu Neal

Heading back into the secondary, 26-year-old Keanu Neal has battled several injuries. He played a combined four games in 2018 and 2019. Neal came back last season, recording 100 tackles, one interception, and one fumble recovery. Neal should have some suitors on the market. I can see a short-term deal on a rebuilding team or a team needing help in their secondary. Dan Quinn (Neal’s ex-Coach) is the new DC in Dallas. Could Neal join a desperate Dallas team on a team-friendly deal? Possibly. It’s worth taking a flier on this kid who has a lot to prove.

Neal still has a lot to prove

WR Curtis Samuel

In a WR class of Allen Robinson, Chris Godwin, Kenny Golladay, and JuJu, a guy like Curtis Samuel is forgotten about. Samuel was a major weapon for the Panthers this past season. He had over 1000 scrimmage yards (851 receiving and 200 rushing). Samuel showed out in the final year of the contract and should demand a payday. The 25-year-old will be a versatile weapon for any offense.

Samuel turned in a career year in 2020

K Cairo Santos

There’s always a couple of teams that need to switch kickers because of efficiency issues or injuries. The Bears were in desperate need of a kicker because of an injury to Eddy Pineiro. They signed Cairo Santos and the season he had was incredible. Santos hit 30 of 32 field goal attempts and 36 of 37 extra point attempts. He was very reliable and had his best season heading into free agency.

Santos delivered for Chicago

RBs James Conner and Marlon Mack

Both of these running backs are young (Conner is 26 and Mack is 25) and have a lot to prove. Mack suffered a torn Achilles injury early in the season, and the Colts found their franchise RB in Jonathan Taylor in his absence. Now, they could bring Mack back, but Nyheim Hines is another good back for the Colts, making Mack expendable especially when Indy needs to retain many other free agents and just added Carson Wentz bloated contract. However, the 25-year-old is a good bounce back player to bet on.

Mack will bounce back in 2021?

Although Conner wasn’t injured last season, he never got going. The Steelers were a pass-heavy team, and Conner’s touches were no where near where they could’ve been. With good RBs in the draft, cap issues, and more effective backs on the roster like Benny Snell, Conner could be looking for a new home.

Will Conner be a Steeler in 2021?

QB Mitchell Trubisky

Say what you want about Trubisky, but the 27-year-old QB has flashed promising signs. Teams like the Patriots could turn his career around. The Bears and Trubisky have had their issues, but I’m not ruling out a reunion. The former 2nd overall pick played great down the stretch, and might have earned a him a shot either in Chicago or elsewhere on a prove-it deal. There are many QBs on the carousel, but Trubisky can still be a successful NFL QB.

Trubisky offers plenty of value to QB-needy teams

  • Thanks for the a new challenge you have disclosed in your article. One thing I’d prefer to discuss is that FSBO relationships are built with time. By releasing yourself to owners the first end of the week their FSBO can be announced, prior to a masses start out calling on Thursday, you create a good interconnection. By giving them equipment, educational resources, free records, and forms, you become a great ally. If you take a personal interest in them and their predicament, you make a solid network that, in many cases, pays off in the event the owners decide to go with an agent they know plus trust — preferably you actually.

  • I have noticed that of all types of insurance, health care insurance is the most controversial because of the struggle between the insurance coverage company’s necessity to remain making money and the buyer’s need to have insurance cover.

More than half with the uninsured are really under the age of 35. They do not really feel they are wanting health insurance simply because they’re young as well as healthy. The income is normally spent on homes, food, and also entertainment. Many people that do go to work either full or part-time are not supplied insurance through their jobs so they head out without owing to the rising price of health insurance in the United States. Thanks for the tips you talk about through this website.
