NFL Free Agent Rankings: Defensive Backs
By Matt Horkman

Cornerbacks

1. Darrelle Revis, New England Patriots
The Patriots have declined Revis’ $20 million team option, making him an unrestricted free agent. Revis, coming off a Super Bowl championship, may follow the money this time around. Aside from the Patriots, the Jets and Bills will be his biggest suitors.

Possible Destinations: Buffalo, New England, & N.Y. Jets

2. Byron Maxwell, Seattle Seahawks
Maxwell and the Eagles formally agreed to a massive contract on Sunday. The deal is worth $63 million over six years, with $25 million guaranteed. A big, physical corner is exactly what the Eagles needed. They paid a steep price, however. 

Possible Destination: Philadelphia

3. Davone House, Green Bay Packers
House has good size (6-foot, 195), length, and is young enough (25) that his best football is in front of him. He plays primarily on the outside, relying on his physicality and technique to holdup against athletic receivers. The Packers will make every attempt to re-sign him, as they see his upside.

Possible Destinations:  Buffalo, Green Bay, N.Y. Jets, Minnesota, & Seattle

4. Tramon Williams, Green Bay PackersTramon Williams
The Packers tend to be a team that parts from players a year too soon rather than a year too late. Williams is coming off a solid year, but he turns 32 later this month. With a quality group of young cornerback already on the roster, the Packers seem content to let Williams test the market.

Possible Destinations: Green Bay, Philadelphia, & Seattle

5. Antonio Cromartie, Arizona Cardinals
Cromartie is a natural corner with excellent ball skills (34 career interceptions). He played last year under Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who is now the head coach of the Jets. Cromartie played for the Jets under Rex Ryan, and seem to have enjoyed his stay there. If the Jets are interested, then that’s where he’ll sign.

Possible Destinations: Arizona, Buffalo, & N.Y. Jets

6. Buster Skrine, Cleveland Browns
Undersized (5-foot-9, 185) but productive, Skrine will have plenty of suitors on the open market. He can play the slot, but he also displays the ball skills to hold up on the outside.

Possible Destinations: Buffalo, Detroit, Cleveland, San Francisco, & Tennessee

7. Chris Culliver, San Francisco 49ers
Culliver missed the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL, and was mostly a backup in 2011 and 2012. However, he came back healthy in 2014, winning one of San Francisco’s starting cornerback jobs. He played well, intercepting four passes.

Possible Destinations: Chicago, N.Y. Jets, Philadelphia, & San Francisco

8. Rashean Mathis, Detroit Lions
Age is only a number to Mathis. The 35-year-old played exceptional for Detroit, routinely locking down the opponent’s No. 1 receiver. He has said he’d like to stay with Detroit, and general manager Martin Mayhew has signaled that he’d like to make that happen.

Possible Destination: Detroit

9. Perrish Cox, San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers probably won’t be able to afford both Culliver and Cox, so they’ll have to choose one or the other. Cox has good ball skills (five interceptions last year) and has the size to play on the outside. Culliver probably offers more upside, though.

Possible Destinations: Chicago, N.Y. Jets, Philadelphia, & San Francisco

10. Cary Williams, Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles released Williams in a cap-saving move. He’s already drawn interest from the Jets and Seahawks. The Titans are also in play for him.

Possible Destinations: N.Y. Jets, Seattle, & Tennessee

Best of the Rest
Alan Ball, Jacksonville Jaguars
Patrick Robinson, New Orleans Saints
Walter Thurmond III, N.Y. Giants
Jimmy Wilson, Miami Dolphins
Kyle Wilson, N.Y. Jets

Safeties

1. Rahim Moore, Denver Broncos
Brining back Moore isn’t much of a priority for the Broncos, who have to contend with several other free agents. Moore is an adequate safety, best known for misplaying the football on Jacoby Jones’ 70-yard touchdown in Denver’s stunning loss to Baltimore in the 2013 divisional playoffs. 

Possible Destination: Chicago, Minnesota, N.Y. Giants, & Philadelphia

2. Antrel Rolle, N.Y. Giants
Rolle has started every game for the Giants since signing as an unrestricted free agent in 2010. However, at 32, his skills are beginning to diminish. The Giants, who are careful with their money, may not pay him what he considers fair value.

Possible Destination: Chicago, Miami, N.Y. Giants, N.Y. Jets, & Philadelphia

3. Louis Delmas, Miami Dolphins
Durability is always a concern for Delmas, who has missed 18 games in his six-year career. He’s also a bit reckless, often times launching himself at opposing receivers. Still, he played well with Miami last year, so they’ll attempt to re-sign him.

Possible Destination: Chicago, Miami, N.Y. Giants, N.Y. Jets & Philadelphia

4. Tyvon Branch, Oakland Raiders
When healthy, Branch is a solid strong safety who can play in the box. However, he’s missed 27 games over the last two seasons. That was too much for the Raiders to swallow, so they released him last month. He’ll need to pass his physical before settling for a short-term deal.

Possible Destination: Indianapolis, Kansas City, N.Y. Jets, & Washington

5. Marcus Gilchrist, San Diego Chargers
A two-year starter, Gilchrist will draw outside interest as a strong safety. He plays the run well as he’s a good tackler, but his coverage skills are underwhelming.

Possible Destination: Chicago, Miami, N.Y. Giants, N.Y. Jets, & Philadelphia

Best of the Rest
Mike Adams, Indianapolis Colts
Stevie Brown, N.Y. Giants
Dawan Landry, N.Y. Jets
Ron Parker, Kansas City
Da’Norris Searcy, Buffalo Bills
