Ranking the top 10 NFL free agents in 2015

The NFL is a 365-day league, and even in the midst of the league's spotlight time on the field, there is an insatiable appetite for news that includes teams that have already been eliminated from contention. In that spirit, we will break down the top ten free agents who will be hitting the open market when the Super Bowl concludes, and the 2015 list is a robust mix of talent.

It is important to note that this list is anything but finalized, as there will almost certainly be cuts that will provide additional names. However, it would be irresponsible to speculate about players who are currently under contract for the 2015 campaign (i.e. Adrian Peterson and Jay Cutler), and they will be absent from this particular group.

Speculation about where these players will land will surely pick up over the next few weeks, but for now, let's take a look at who will be available in the coming months.
