2011 NFL Free Agents

Here is a list of players that will become free agents in 2011. It includes both “Restricted”  and  “Unrestricted” free agents. Click to see a list of the Top 50 2011 Free Agents.

Note:
With the collective bargaining agreement expiring last year, the amount of year that were required for players to become unrestricted free agents increased to 6 years. Depending on whether or not the NFL and players union are able to come to an agreement before there is a lock, there is a good chance that the number of years required for a player to become an unrestricted free agent will likely be reset to either 4 or 5 years which is why I have included players experience below.

 

  1. Unrestricted Free Agents – Green
  2. Restricted Free Agents – Grey
  3. Top 50 Free Agents Blue
