The 2019 NFL season is slowly approaching, and with that will come the opportunity for free agent signings to show their new fans they were worth every last penny.
While some may find their homes uncomfortable, others will certainly find incredible success. Here's a look at five players who will have memorable campaigns with their new teams:
1. Tyrann Mathieu
Tyrann Mathieu was a stud cornerback last season for the Houston Texans. In seeing his talent, the Kansas City Chiefs handed him a 3-year contract this past summer to help fortify a defense that ranked 24th last season in points allowed per game. Mathieu will have the chance to make a difference on a team fully looking to contend for a Super Bowl trophy this winter.
2. Nick Foles
Nick Foles validated his stellar Super Bowl run by following it up with a performance that had the Philadelphia Eagles so close to the NFC Championship Game. Now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, he's been gifted his own team with total control and is backed by one of the best defenses in the entire league.
3. Earl Thomas
Despite a number of injuries over the last few seasons, Earl Thomas is still one of the best defensive backs the NFL has today. Having traded in the Legion of Boom for the Baltimore Ravens, Thomas is part of a team that's always prided itself on his side of the ball. Baltimore ranked No.1 in opponents yards per game last season, a figure that will likely improve with a former champion in town.
4. Landon Collins
Freed from the shackles of the New York Giants, Landon Collins is set to suit up for a Washington Redskins team looking to move up in the standings. The 3-time Pro Bowl safety is sure to be revitalized on a new team with fresh expectations, an impact that is sure to help his overall level of play this season.
5. Le'Veon Bell
After sitting out all of last year, Le'Veon Bell joined an up-and-coming team in the New York Jets. Already with a future franchise cornerback in Sam Darnold, Bell provides the Jets with a much-needed complimentary presence at running back. He is sure to receive plenty of carries and remind the world of his place among the best at his position.
