There's a lot of money about to be shelled out to NFL free agents, including Le'Veon Bell who ​​can now choose his next team after not being transition tagged by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Where will he go? The only answer to that is, likely somewhere with ​lots and lots of ​cap spaceWith players like Bell and Jadeveon Clowney available this offseason, and six teams with more than $70 million in cap space, NFL free agency should be chocked full of bidding wars. 

With all that money available for Bell and others, here are the five teams that can make the biggest splash this offseason:


5) Houston Texans: $78.0 million

If it feels like the Texans are always in the playoff mix, it's because they are. In fact, Houston has been to the postseason in five of the last eight seasons, including three of the last four, but haven't made it past the Divisional Round. The team could be in for a shakeup if they decide to let Clowney walk in free agency, and that would make their estimated $78 million in cap space openly available for other free agents.

4) Buffalo Bills: $79.2 million

Doesn't anyone want to play in Buffalo? Probably not, but money will make people do strange things. The Bills' defense is quietly one of the best in the NFL, so it's imperative for them to spend on the offensive side of the ball. Quarterback Josh Allen has proven to be more of a Cam Newton-type and a versatile offensive linemen could be a good move for them this offseason. Not to mention, getting talented receivers to the frigid temperatures of upstate New York is a hard selling point. But perhaps a few extra dollars could persuade them. 

3) Cleveland Browns: $79.3 million

It seems like the Browns had endless cap room last offseason and now they're coming back for more. Cleveland is a team on the rise, thanks to quarterback Baker Mayfield ​rejuvenating the city by leading the Browns to a 5-3 record over their final eight games of 2018. They could opt for a couple of edge rushers, wide receivers or even more offensive line help for the young quarterback.

2) New York Jets: $99.6 million

Jets fans has been waiting for a winning football team for quite some time now, and this offseason could be when the team finally takes that big step forward. Quarterback Sam Darnold showed signs of progress down the stretch of his rookie season, but it's clear that he needs more talent around him. Bell makes a ton of sense to land with Gang Green and would provide a major help to the young QB's growth.

1) Indianapolis Colts: $107.8 million

Speaking of Bell, he has already expressed interest in playing for the Colts through a playful comment in ​an Instagram post. But whether it's a joke or not, Bell would make a great fit with Andrew Luck. To the surprise of many, Indy's defense actually had a great season in 2018 and Bell could be that last piece needed for the Colts to make a run at the super Bowl.
