There are still many free agents left on the market at the moment. Let’s craft some ideal free agency fits that’ll provide help to needy teams.  Even though we are very late in the 2023 NFL free agency period, there are still many quality free agents left on the market that can surely help certain teams.

With all of these free agents left, let’s make some ideal free agency fits.

2023 NFL Season: Making more ideal free agent fits

Dalton Risner to the Los Angeles Rams

The Rams are in a weird spot.  They aren’t really rebuilding, but it’s clear that the team needs some serious roster help.  They added TCU standout Steve Avila at guard in the 2023 NFL Draft, but their other projected starter at guard, Logan Bruss, could be improved on.  Dalton Risner could slide in at the other interior spot and perhaps provide some much needed stability to an offensive line that was shaky in 2022.

Carson Wentz to the Green Bay Packers

I am not sure what the Packers‘ QB situation will end up looking like.  We do know that Jordan Love is the starter, but we don’t know what Jordan Love is.  Their projected backup, Sean Clifford, is a rookie, and there just isn’t much behind Love if things go south.

Carson Wentz could come in as a reclamation project for the Packers as someone who could provide a respectable ceiling if he fits within the offense, and someone who could potentially keep the Packers afloat in a weak conference if Love fizzles out in the NFL.

Yannick Ngakoue to the Denver Broncos

The Denver Broncos cut one of their depth pieces at EDGE in Jake Martin the other day, which was a weird decision, as they don’t really have much at this position to begin with.  Baron Browning is still new to the position and Randy Gregory simply cannot stay on the field.

Ngakoue has been in the NFL since 2016 and has never had less than 8.0 sacks in a season, so the Broncos could essentially get a guaranteed 8.0 sacks if he signed with them.

Ben Jones to the Washington Commanders

The Commanders could use a little help along their offensive line, and Ben Jones might be the help that they need.  Jones has played for the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans during his lengthy career and did turn into one of the best centers in the NFL with the Titans.

He was let go this offseason and could help out the Commanders at center, who are projected to start Nick Gates at the position.  High quality protection for Sam Howell is a must.

Kareem Hunt to the Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins might have the deepest RB room in the NFL that includes Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, Devon Achane, and Myles Gaskin, but signing someone like Kareem Hunt might be a good decision for them.  He’d instantly be the best RB in their room in my opinion, and would perhaps give them a consistent weapon on the run game and yet another weapon for the offense and for Tua Tagovailoa.
