Season 32 Offseason Free Agency Tracker

Season 32 is upon us, and the free agency signing period is in full swing!  Although it's a pretty underwhelming free agent class that lacks star power, there's still some good players to be had!  Check back here periodically to see where all the top free agents land this offseason!

Old New Contract
Rank Player Pos Age Team Team Amount Years
