Agent's Take: The exact dollar figures that top free agents should target
By Joel Corry | Former Sports Agent
March 2, 2016 7:16 pm ET

If an agent doesn't ask for big money, a player can't get it. However, there is the risk of pricing a client out of the market by making unreasonably high demands.

Free agency is a fluid process...

The window for teams to negotiate exclusively with their impending free agents ends on March 7. That's when all teams are allowed to negotiate with the agents of prospective unrestricted free agents during a two-day period ending at 3:59:59 p.m. ET on March 9. Players can't sign deals with new clubs until the 2016 league year and free agency officially begins at 4 p.m. ET that day. A player's ability to re-sign with his current club is allowed during the period.

The 2016 salary cap came in higher than expected at $155.27 million. Several teams having in excess of $40 million of cap space as well as the 8.37 percent cap increase should result in a strong market during the first wave of free agency, which typically is over after the first 96 hours of the signing period...

...Malik Jackson, Defensive Lineman
Contract package: 6 years, $84 million
Guaranteed money: $45 million
First three years: $46.5 million

Keeping Jackson may not feasible for the Broncos since he recently rejected an offer in the neighborhood of $12 million per year, according to KUSA's Mike Klis (). Bears head coach John Fox would welcome a reunion with Jackson but may need to convince general manager Ryan Pace to make a splash in free agency. Jackson would make an already good Texans defense even more formidable. His ability to play in a variety of defensive schemes could attract interest from multiple teams, including the Jaguars, Giants and Raiders...

In what world were we running a 3-4 defense under Ryan?!?

Williams was old and still graded out better than most of our DL...

Only reason why Cam graded higher is because the scale is overly weighted to sacks...

And Jordan often failed to set,secure the edge pushing, collapsing the pocket...

I was talking about Mario Williams in Rex Ryan's defense.
