NFL free agency has arrived, and each team will be buys looking to upgrade. Here are three terrific fits for all 32 clubs.
NFL free agency is upon us.
The new league year will begin next week, with teams allowed a two-day negotiating period with free agents before signings can be officially announced.
It promises to be a frantic few days, with an intriguing class of free agents featuring stacks of talent on both sides of the ball, including one certain six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback.
What players should each team be looking to sign? Here we look three targets for every franchise in the NFL.

3. A.J. Green
The Bills have the capital to win free agency and make a series of splashes that can help take them from playoff team to genuine contender for the AFC.
Buffalo will enter the new league year with $83million in cap space, making them a clear candidate to hand Clowney a contract that will make him the highest-paid defensive player in the league.
The addition of Clowney could turn an intriguing front seven into one of the best groups in the NFL.
Sean McDermott already has a star in his secondary in Tre’Davious White. However, McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane’s connection with Bradberry from their time with the Panthers makes the Bills an obvious destination for the Carolina corner, even with Buffalo having already signed Josh Norman.
Josh Allen’s well-documented accuracy issues would be minimized by the arrival of Green. If the former Bengal succeeds in shaking off the injury problems that prevented him from playing in 2019, he can be the perfect complement to a receiving corps featuring John Brown and Cole Beasley. That said, Green is on the franchise tag, so Buffalo needs to swing a trade.
Signing all three may be unlikely but, with the amount of cap room they have and a young roster in excellent shape, these are the kind of acquisitions the Bills should be looking at to open their championship window.
