A wild NFL offseason could get even wilder in mid-March.

After a flurry of trades, cuts and other roster moves involving big-name players, this year's free agency period is shaping up to see even more stars potentially landing with new teams.

Teams are allowed to franchise tag their own players from Feb. 23 at 9 a.m. Eastern until March 9 at 4 p.m. Teams may start negotiating with agents of impending unrestricted free agents — otherwise known as "legal tampering" — beginning March 15, and free agency officially begins March 17 at 4 p.m. Eastern.

Here's a position-by-position look at some of the top free agents for the 2021 offseason. (All salary information via Spotrac.)
