The 2021 NFL Draft is officially in the books, which means free agency is set to heat back up again.

Defensive back Brian Poole remains unsigned and is one of the best options left in regards to players in the secondary. He should draw some interest from teams as training camp gets closer.

Poole has the skills to fight for a starting role next season, but could be a depth piece at the very least. With that in mind, here are three of the most likely free-agent destinations for Poole.

Brian Poole Free Agent Destinations

1. Las Vegas Raiders

It is no secret that the Las Vegas Raiders need to improve their defense before next season kicks off and adding Poole to the mix would be one way to do just that. The Raiders gave up 263.2 passing yards per game (No. 25 in NFL) last year and need players they can rely on in the secondary. Poole would fill that role given he posted 2 interceptions and 7 pass breakups in just 9 games played in 2020. He also had 1.0 sack and proved to be capable of playing multiple positions.

2. Baltimore Ravens

One contending team that could look to sign Poole as a depth piece would be the Baltimore Ravens. Starting safety DeShon Elliott was solid in his first NFL season in 2020 racking up 80 tackles, but did not record an interception. Poole could have a chance to steal that starting role with an impressive showing in training camp. The Ravens know how important a strong defense is to winning a championship and have shown they are not afraid to make risky signings. Poole would be a great fit here.

3. Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans present another opportunity for Poole to join a contending team in need of depth in the secondary. After releasing starters Adoree Jackson and Malcolm Butler, Tennessee drafted cornerback Caleb Farley and signed safety Janoris Jenkins. However, expected starter Amani Hooker started just 3 games for the Titans last year and may benefit from having some competition in training camp. Poole is reliable in coverage and has proven to be great at bringing down the opponent as he averages over 4.2 tackles per game in his career.
