Tracking all the Buckeye NFL free agency rumors

As unrestricted free agents, there’s bound to be lots of talks and visits for several former Ohio State players looking for a new deal.

With NFL free agency getting underway on Wednesday, March 14 at 4 p.m. ET, there are several former Buckeyes vying for new deals ahead of the 2018 season. With the Los Angeles Rams re-signing LS Jake McQuaide to a 3-year deal, there are now seven former Ohio State players available this offseason.

Last year’s free agency frenzy surrounding Terrelle Pryor Sr. may dwindle a bit in 2018, but he’s still a very intriguing prospect, and is likely willing to accept a lower deal coming off of a not-so-great 2017 season. Running back Carlos Hyde, however, is coming off a very good, career-best season with the 49ers and is looking for his first big-money, long-term deal following his rookie contract.

Other Buckeye free agents include three Buckeye offensive guards, Alex Boone, Jack Mewhort, and Andrew Norwell, and two safety/special teams players, Tyvis Powell and Nate Ebner.

You can expect no shortage of rumors and meeting updates during free agency, and we’ll keep you updated with all the latest.
