|Six players who made NFL Network’s Top 100 players of 2017 remain on the list for 2018. The network will announce the order of the final 10 on Monday night at 8 ET , but Tom Brady stands a good chance to stay atop the list.
Only Aaron Rodgers should stand a chance to unseat him.
The final 10 players, in alphabetical order, are:
Le'Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers
Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans Saints
Antonio Brown , WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
Aaron Donald, DT, Los Angeles Rams
Todd Gurley, RB, Los Angeles Rams
Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons
Von Miller, LB , Denver Broncos
Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles
Donald, Gurley, Wentz and Brees replaced Khalil Mack, Ezekiel Elliott, Odell Beckham and Matt Ryan on the list from last year. Beckham played only four games because of his injury , and Elliott missed six because of a suspension.
The final order last year was: 1. Brady; 2. Miller; 3. Jones; 4. Brown; 5. Mack; 6. Rodgers; 7. Elliott; 8. Beckham; 9. Bell; and 10. Ryan.
In this year’s list, Mack was 16th, Ryan 29th, Elliott 54th and Beckham 77th.
The NHL鈥檚 free agency period this summer has come and gone, and every team turns their attention to training camps in September. The Edmonton Oilers made two splash moves this offseason by signing Connor McDavid and Leon Draisatil to eight-year extensions, while teams like the Leafs, Lightning, and Capitals offered free agent deals and extensions to players who are either emerging or veterans with several seasons of NHL experience.
The Vegas Golden Knights will play their inaugural season as the league's 31st franchise, so the other 30 teams exposed some of their players for聽the expansion draft and protected key assets. For example , the Pittsburgh Penguins exposed goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to Vegas following back-to-back Stanley Cups. The Pens needed to address their backup goalie needs, considering that Matt Murray would certainly become their starter. Pens' general manager Jim Rutherford ultimately signed free agent Antti Niemi to a one-year deal. Then you look at the Dallas Stars, who offered Alexander Radulov a huge contract worth over $30 million for five years. Some might think that signing will boost their offense, but the deal may come back to bite them if his offensive production declines or is placed on long-term injury reserve.
Let's take a look at the league's eight free agents who were paid too much and seven others who are bargains.
