While the NFL’s free agency period is far from over, most of the big name talent has already been scooped up and analysts are starting to come out with their grades.
But ESPN wanted to hear more than what their own analysts has to say, so they asked the viewers who they felt struck out in free agency.
The overwhelming winner were the Carolina Panthers who came away with 52 percent of the vote. Placing well behind in second place were the Dallas Cowboys with 29 percent while the Kansas City Chiefs (10 percent) and Seattle Seahawks (9 percent) rounded out the top four vote receivers.
Understandably the Panthers are leading the fan vote simply because their wide receiver core is laughable and there aren’t exactly any difference makers left in the free agency pool.
As for the Cowboys, the loss of DeMarcus Ware certainly hurt as has the lack of a ‘big name’ addition. But the Cowboys were financially strung and couldn’t do much with limited funds.
In addition, the Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks both lost some talent though are among the deepest teams in the league, so the losses won’t sting too much.
