Five former Ohio State players make list of top NFL free agents

Our lovely friends over at Touchdown Wire have provided an interesting list of the top 101 players to become free agents in 2024, and five former Ohio State football stars have made an appearance. These lists are always fun because the excitement of someone getting a fresh start always provides a silver lining of potential stardom.

Some of the players on this list are young guys looking to cash on big and potentially start over, but a couple are older players looking to make a trip to the bank as they finish their career.

NFL teams can contact free agents on March 11, which opens the official tampering period. Now, this list is not set in stone as there is a slim chance a player can be franchised tagged and no longer available for free agency, but again I want to emphasize that chance is pretty slim for these five players. Let’s now dive into the list.
