2018 Free-Agent Class Proves to be Less Than Stellar

The 2018 free-agent class takes major hits seemingly on a daily basis.

On Tuesday, the Arizona Cardinals had to put Jordan Pugh, their $9 million guard, on injured reserve. The Buffalo Bills became the second team to cut wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, whom the New York Jets paid $4.5 million a year. Last week the New York Giants cut guard Patrick Omameh, who signed a three-year, $15 million contract.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers paid $3.25 million a year for kicker Chandler Catanzaro. He was cut this week. Cody Parkey of the Chicago Bears got $3.75 million a year and he’s struggling.

Safe to say, this wasn’t a good free-agent class. My fear is that is might be the norm. One of the things I track is how many draft choices from the draft class that turns into free agency the next season are on the active roster.
