Amari Cooper - Dallas Cowboys, 26
Amari Cooper has been highly desired since being picked 4th overall by the Oakland Raiders in the 2015 draft. He played college football at the powerhouse Alabama under coach Nick Saban and he won the national award for the best wide receiver in college football. Cooper had a solid career with the Raiders including two Pro Bowl appearances before being traded to the Dallas Cowboys for a first round pick in 2018. The Cowboys will certainly want to keep Cooper but they may have to use their franchise tag on another player such as quarterback Dak Presscott. Expect Dallas to try to negotiate a long term deal and in the absence of that potentially transition tag Cooper.
Emmanuel Sanders - San Francisco 49ers, 33
Emmanuel Sanders was drafted in the third round in 2010 by the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had a good start to his career in Pittsburgh but was never really the number one receiver during his time there. He was then traded to Denver where he operated in a two headed monster with Demarius Thomas, in recent years becoming the most featured receiver in the offense. This year, with the emergence of Courtland Sutton, Sanders was traded to the San Francisco 49ers where he has flourished. They may want to keep in in San Francisco as a target for Garappolo, but it is hard to know where Sanders is going to end up.
A.J. Green - Cincinnati Bengals, 32
AJ Green was drafted 4th overall out of the University of Georgia in 2011 by the Cincinnati Bengals. He has played his whole career with the Bengals, where he has been a dominant receiver. He made the Pro Bowl in his first season and in his first three seasons set the record for most catches, a record which held up until recently broken by Jarvis Landry. Green has recently suffered from a number of injuries that have derailed his career. It is hard to gauge how much interest there will be in Green given his injury history but if he can still play he should be a threat for any team that has him.
Larry Fitzgerald - Arizona Cardinals, 37
Larry Fitzgerald was another highly touted receiver coming out of college. He was picked 3rd overall by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2004 draft. He played college football at the University of Pittsburgh and has gone on to dominate in the NFL. Fitzgerald has been to eight Pro Bowls and twice led the NFL in receptions as well as twice leading the NFL in touchdowns. One of the most distinguished receivers, and beloved in Arizona, most would be pretty shocked to see Fitzgerald leave the Cardinals. The one thing that might pull him away is the opportunity to play for a contending team, and compete for a Super Bowl.
Robby Anderson - New York Jets, 27
Robby Anderson had an undistinguished career before being signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Jets in 2016. He has made up for that by impressing during his four years on the Jets, having gone for over 3000 yards and 20 touchdowns, despite playing with inconsistent quarterback play. Robby Anderson likely would get some interest in free-agency but look for the Jets to try and keep one of their young players and bring him back. The Jets aren’t known for the best contracts in free agency so he could be a candidate to get overpaid.
