ET on Tuesday and there were no last minute additions to the list that filled out over the last week.That means that six players are heading into the new league year with a tag attached to their name. They are Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence , Texans defensive end/linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark, Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford and 49ers kicker Robbie Gould.Lawrence Andy Isabella Jersey , Clowney, Jarrett, Clark and Ford are five of the top six players on PFT’s list of the top 2019 free agents. The only exception at the top of the list is Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers, who appears to be well positioned to strike it rich next week despite having shoulder surgery after the Super Bowl.Gould was No. 80 on that list. Another Patriot Brian Burns Jersey , Stephen Gostkowski, is the only other kicker on the list.Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, Giants safety Landon Collins, Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley , Seahawks safety Earl Thomas and Eagles quarterback Nick Foles are the next names on our list of the top free agents. We’ll likely be hearing a lot about them once the market officially opens and the money starts flying around the league. ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — After making a couple of big splashes to improve their offense, the Oakland Raiders have now turned to upgrading their struggling defense.The Raiders agreed to a four-year contract with versatile free-agent safety Lamarcus Joyner, a person familiar with the deal said Tuesday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the move can’t be finalized until the new league year starts Wednesday.The move to bring in Joyner comes after the Raiders agreed to a trade with Pittsburgh for prolific receiver Antonio Brown and agreed on the richest contract ever for an offensive lineman with a deal to add tackle Trent Brown.Oakland will give Antonio Brown a new three-year contract worth $50.125 million and Trent Brown will get a deal worth $66 million over four years Will Grier Jersey , according to a person familiar with those moves who spoke on condition of anonymity because they hadn’t been announced. ESPN reported Joyner’s deal will be worth about $42 million as the Raiders are spending liberally after going 4-12 in coach Jon Gruden’s first season back on the sideline.Joyner now will help upgrade a defense that ranked last in the league in yards allowed per play (6.27) and points allowed per game (29.2) last season.Joyner played this past season on the franchise tag for the Rams, earning $11.3 million. But Los Angeles went in another direction, signing former Baltimore safety Eric Weddle last week to be Joyner’s replacement.The 28-year-old Joyner was originally a second-round pick by the Rams in 2014 and played 67 games over five seasons with the franchise. He has four interceptions and 25 passes defensed in his career.The Raiders coveted Joyner for his versatility; he has experience playing cornerback, in the slot and safety. But he was at his best after moving exclusively to free safety the past two seasons under coordinator Wade Phillips.Joyner will provide a needed boost to Oakland’s secondary and will be expected to start alongside Karl Joseph with recently re-signed Erik Harris providing depth for coordinator Paul Guenther. Marcus Gilchrist and Reggie Nelson are free agents and are not expected to return.Joyner and Joseph are small in stature , with Joyner listed at 5-foot-8 and Joseph just two inches taller. That could cause problems matching up against bigger tight ends like Kansas City’s Travis Kelce.
