One year ago, only half of the teams in the NFL really spent up to Madden 21 coins the salary cap; is there really reason, under those conditions, to endeavor even that number repeating, let alone a surge? Do we not think there would be fiscal motivation to attempt and bide the time in the hopes that an entire category of players that might normally earn $3M-$5M could be obtained for close to $1M? There is going to be a rash of gamers stuck awaiting the best one-year, prove-it deal they could muster, I would contend, and some may begin grabbing the modest bird in hand earlier rather than later.

Craving even more NFL coverage focusing on previews, recaps, news and analysis? Listen below and subscribe to the Select Six podcast for a daily dose of everything you want to follow pro football. The group of teams that appear to be obvious spenders isn't all that long. The Eagles and Saints have fueled that fire in the past few decades, but both are dealing with significant cap issues and will not have the ability to push the industry anything close to what we have observed in the past.

The Patriots have as much cover distance and roster flexibility as anybody, but do we actually think Bill Belichick is going to go hog wild throwing around best-of-breed money and resetting the marketplace at multiple places? The Falcons and Rams -- additionally never averse to making new norms in spending at certain positions -- have more or less made their beds for 2021. The Cowboys may be hamstrung by a quarterback on another franchise tag counting close to $40M against their cap via most, if not all, of their offseason.

That is suboptimal from a paying standpoint. It's very likely to be the usual suspects -- bad teams under new direction with more cover space than they know what to do with, that have to overpay to get the best free agents to wink back at them now of year. That will drive the engine as it always does -- but I am not sure there are the thickness of rivalry we normally find for those players. I am thinking a half dozen teams will be inclined to dip their toes into the deepest end of free agency, headed by the Jaguars and Jets, and perhaps the Texans.

The Raiders' failure to find any defensive players of notice through multiple drafts could see them chase round the best linemen and linebackers and defensive backs they could locate, but who else among .500 better or teams will probably be pushing them? The Colts will probably be competitive -- but within reason under judicious general manager Chris Ballard -- and also the Bengals certainly don't have any shortage of needs to fulfill, but do we think Mike Brown will probably be needing to set up new spending marks along the offensive and cheap Mut 21 coins defensive lineup, where he needs assistance? I've got some reservations. Perhaps the Titans?
