NFL mini-camps just concluded and training camp is just a month away, but some of the NFL's biggest off-season free agents are still unsigned. Dalvin Cook is looking for a new home after his recent release from the Minnesota Vikings, and fellow veteran running back Ezekiel Elliott is also moving on after seven years with the Dallas Cowboys.

The other big name on the market is DeAndre Hopkins, as the former All-Pro receiver was cut by the Arizona Cardinals at the end of May. What are the besting landing spots for these stars and other top NFL free agents and who will sign first? Find out here:


1) DeAndre Hopkins (WR)

The numbers did not look the best for DeAndre Hopkins in Arizona over the last two seasons: 1,289 yards and 12.2 yards per catch across 19 games, but when during his last full season in 2020, Hopkins was Second-Team All-Pro and had more than 1,400 yards receiving.

Bill Belichick has always been a master a getting the best out of his players, especially after down years, and DeAndre Hopkins would be another go-to target for Mac Jones after signing JuJu Smith-Schuster. Expect an imminent move for the best remaining NFL free agent.

Landing Spot: New England Patriots



2) Yannick Ngakoue (EDGE)

Yannick Ngakoue has never been a convincing run-stopper, but when you have 19.5 sacks over the last two seasons, do you really need to be? Ngakoue has played for four teams over the last three seasons and has been an effective edge player at every stop.

Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs moved on from veteran pass-rushers Justin Houston and Frank Clark, leaving youngsters George Karlaftis and Charles Omenihu as the starting defensive ends. The Chiefs are tight on cap space, but Ngakoue makes sense for this inexperienced Kansas City defensive line.
