Someone is going to get a steal with Malik Hooker in free agency. Though the early portion of his career has been defined by injuries, missing 28 games in four seasons, Hooker has been a difference-maker when on the field.

He received a stellar 79.1 grade from ProFootballFocus in 2018 and followed it up with a decent 69.5 in 2019. Now a free agent, here are the best remaining destinations for Hooker.

3. Indianapolis Colts

Hooker is almost certainly not going to get the big deal he's surely looking for on the open market. It wouldn't be too surprising to see him take one-year, "prove-it" deal to remain with the Colts. The ballhawk could be a nice fit on a team-friendly deal.

2. Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys need a ton of help in the secondary, and Hooker actually visited with the team earlier this week. He left without putting pen to paper, but it's not a stretch to think he could end up in Dallas eventually. The ballhawk would have a chance to shine while patrolling the backend in Dan Quinn's defense.

1. Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders had an atrocious secondary last year, and there aren't many available players with as much raw ability as Hooker. He'd be a really smart, low-risk, high-reward gamble for the team to take and he'd be a huge upgrade over Jeff Heath.
