ATLANTA — 11Alive Sports offers a real-time tracker of this year's crop of premium NFL free agents.
For the next three days (Monday-Wednesday), the NFL permits a tampering-free window for players and their agents to strike deals with teams (existing or new), although nothing can be made official until 4 p.m. EST on Wednesday.
It's worth noting: This listing only includes players who weren't franchise tagged by their respective clubs – featuring blue-chippers like Jadeveon Clowney (Texans), DeMarcus Lawrence (Cowboys) and Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett.
- Atlanta Falcons slap franchise tag on Grady Jarrett, will attempt to negotiate long-term deal
- WATCH: Calvin Ridley logs the first of many touchdowns in a Falcons uniform
- Atlanta Falcons decline 2019 option on kicker Matt Bryant, the franchise's all-time leading scorer
As recent history dictates, the vast majority of franchise-tagged assets end up playing with that same team for at least one more season.
1. RB Le'Veon Bell ... age: 27
OLD TEAM: Steelers ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Jets seem to be the clear front-runners to land Bell, who averaged 1,901 total yards and 10 TDs for 2016-17.
2. S Earl Thomas ... age: 30
OLD TEAM: Seahawks ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Ravens just couldn't let the Browns steal the entire spotlight for Tuesday-Wednesday. Just a few hours after Cleveland traded for Odell Beckham Jr. ... Baltimore went all-in on landing running back Mark Ingram and the super-safety Thomas (reported 4 years, $55 million).
3. DE Trey Flowers ... age: 26
OLD TEAM: Patriots ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Flowers, who played under Matt Patricia a few years ago, will reportedly ink a five-year, big-money contract with the Lions.
4. S Landon Collins ... age: 25
OLD TEAM: Giants ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Redskins step up in a big-time way, land Collins for six years and $84 million.
5. OT Trent Brown ... age: 26
OLD TEAM: Patriots ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Brown's reportedly close to a deal with the Raiders.
6. LB Anthony Barr ... age: 27
SCUTTLEBUTT: Barr reportedly agreed to terms with the Jets ... and then got cold feet and decided to bail. As a result, he's staying with the Vikings.
7. DT Sheldon Richardson ... age: 28
OLD TEAM: Vikings ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Richardson may still be a premium talent in the trenches; but as part of the Browns, this will mark his fourth different team in four years. Weird.
8. DT Ndamukong Suh ... age: 32
9. DE Ezekiel Ansah ... age: 30
10. LB Za'Darius Smith ... age: 26
OLD TEAM: Ravens ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Packers moved swiftly and stealthily in landing Smith and Adrian Amos (formerly of the rival Bears).
11. CB Ronald Darby ... age: 25
12. OLB/DE Dante Fowler Jr. ... age: 25
SCUTTLEBUTT: Fowler has reportedly agreed to a 1-year deal to remain with the Rams.

14. LB C.J. Mosley ... age: 27
OLD TEAM: Ravens ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Mosley broke the bank with the Jets ... which now sets up an interesting future negotiation between the Falcons and linebacker Deion Jones.
15. QB Nick Foles ... age: 30
OLD TEAM: Eagles ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Foles has reportedly agreed to a four-year, $88 million deal, with $50-plus million in guarantees.

OLD TEAM: Texans ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Mathieu has reportedly found a home with Kansas City, working alongside Eric Berry at safety.
17. LB Preston Smith ... age: 26
OLD TEAM: Redskins ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Packers hope Preston will maintain his four-year track record by averaging three pass deflections, six sacks and 15-plus quarterback hits per season.
18. RB Mark Ingram ... age: 29
OLD TEAM: Saints ... SCUTTLEBUTT: On the down side, Ingram and Alvin Kamara won't have another chance to amass 1,500 total yards in the same backfield. On the plus side, Ingram could easily be Baltimore's Day 1 starter.
19. OT Ja'Wuan James ... age: 27
OLD TEAM: Dolphins ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Broncos have been a methodical presence during this trade window, opting to bolster the offensive line blocking for Joe Flacco.
20. OT Daryl Williams ... age: 27
SCUTTLEBUTT: After talking to numerous teams, Williams decided to stay with the Panthers.
21. LB Jamie Collins ... age: 29
22. OT Rodger Saffold ... age: 31
23. WR Tyrell Williams ... age: 27
OLD TEAM: Chargers ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Raiders have upgraded their once-anemic receiving corps in a hurry, trading for Antonio Brown and then poaching Tyrell Williams from the hated Chargers.
24. S Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix ... age: 26
25. CB Bryce Callahan ... age: 27
25b. WR Devin Funchess ... age: 25
OLD TEAM: Panthers ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Colts had plenty of money to spend this spring; and yet, $14 million for one season of Funchess seems a tad high.
26. LB Kwon Alexander ... age: 25
OLD TEAM: Buccaneers ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Alexander will reportedly sign with the 49ers (4 years, $54M).
27. OL Matt Paradis ... age: 29
OLD TEAM: Broncos ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Paradis landed a sweet three-year deal with the Panthers. He'll enjoy moving mountains for QB Cam Newton and tailback extraordinaire Christian McCaffrey.
28. LB Shaq Barrett ... age: 26
29. DT Malik Jackson ... age: 29
OLD TEAM: Jaguars ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Jackson will reportedly ink a three-year, $30 million deal with the Eagles.
30. WR Cole Beasley ... age: 30
OLD TEAM: Cowboys ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Looks like Beasley got the $20 million contract he had asked for, via Twitter ... and then some.
31. CB Kareem Jackson ... age: 28
OLD TEAM: Texans ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Jackson was a little peeved at the Texans' tepid response to keeping him. As a result, he''ll be joining forces with the Broncos.
32. CB Pierre Desir ... age: 28
SCUTTLEBUTT: I'm personally shocked there wasn't a bigger market for Desir's services; but then again, the Colts were apparent locks to match any offer. And they did.
33. RB Jay Ajayi ... age: 25
34. WR Golden Tate ... age: 31
35. S LaMarcus Joyner ... age: 28
36. CB Bradley Roby ... age: 27

42. WR Jamison Crowder ... age: 26
OLD TEAM: Redskins ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Reportedly agreed to a three-year, $28.5 million deal with the Jets.
43. CB Darqueze Dennard ... age: 27
44. S Tayshaun Gipson ... age: 29
45. CB Jason McCourty ... age: 32
SCUTTLEBUTT: It didn't make much sense for McCourty to solicit offers for too long, factoring in his great situation with his twin brother (Devin) and the defending champion Patriots.
46. RB Latavius Murray ... age: 29
OLD TEAM: Vikings ... SCUTTLEBUTT: Well, so much for Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara patrolling the Saints' backfield for years to come. Murray will reportedly sign with New Orleans ... thus becoming Kamara's new partner in crime.
47. QB Teddy Bridgewater ... age: 26
SCUTTLEBUTT: Bridgewater's apparently in no rush to pursue a starting opportunity elsewhere. He'll be re-signing with the Saints.
48. LB Clay Matthews Jr. ... age: 33
49. CB Justin Coleman ... age: 25
OLD TEAM: Seahawks ... SCUTTLEBUTT: The Brunswick, Ga. native has reportedly reached a deal with the Lions.
