NFL Free Agency 2015: Best players left at every position

Stevan Ridley, Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Spikes, and Osi Umenyiora are just a few of the big-name players still left in NFL free agency.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

NFL free agency is now into the second week, and much of the market has dried up in terms of the best prospects.

However, there's still plenty of starting-caliber talent to be had at fairly manageable deals. The backup quarterback market is still decent with former starters like Matt Moore and Michael Vick waiting to be signed.

There are also some quality running backs with injury concerns still waiting to sign. Stevan Ridley, Ahmad Bradshaw and Knowshon Moreno entered 2014 as starters. However, season-ending injuries have led to a small market for their services.

There's also plenty of notable names on defense waiting to be signed, including Brandon Spikes, Charles Tillman, B.J. Raji and Osi Umenyiora. None of those guys are still Pro Bowl-caliber players, but they've still got enough left in the tank to make an impact for a playoff contender.
