Fantasy Football: Offseason free agent and potential cap casualty list

Want to see the latest analysis when it goes live? Go to the CBS Sports app on your phone, open up "Settings" and sign up for Fantasy alerts to get the latest from our Fantasy football team as soon as it's available.

Expect a slew of roster moves this offseason thanks to a bloated salary cap (over $190 million for each team to spend) and an infusion of young talent coming in from college football (and maybe a few guys from the AAF).

Players can begin signing with new teams on March 13. Those who are unrestricted free agents (can sign anywhere) and restricted free agents (will cost a new team a draft pick for signing them) are listed below along with players who might get released because they make too much (the amount they'll save their team in cap space is listed next to their names). Their age as of Week 1 is also listed.
