Brandon Scherff might be the best free agent that will actually hit the open market this offseason. A five-time Pro Bowler, Scherff is one of the best guards in the league when he's on the field. That's the issue for the the 30-year-old, though, as he's only played 43-of-65 possible games over the last four seasons.

Regardless, teams are going to be lining up for the chance to give Scherff a massive deal this offseason. Here are the three most likely free-agent destinations for the former No. 5 overall pick.

Brandon Scherff Free Agency

3. Jacksonville Jaguars

Trevor Lawrence was viewed as a generational talent when he entered the league. But the Jacksonville Jaguars seemingly did everything in their power to screw up his rookie season, asking him to play on one of the least talented offenses in football with the disaster that was Urban Meyer calling the shots at head coach. Obviously, that experiment failed. With Doug Pederson taking over for Meyer, this front office needs to do everything in its power to improve Lawrence's supporting cast. Signing Scherff would be a great place to start. Scherff would plug up the hole at right guard, which was the weak link of this OL last year. He's not going to come cheap, but few teams are in a position to outbid Jacksonville this offseason.

2. Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals made it to the Super Bowl despite having one of the league's worst offensive lines. Thankfully, they have more than enough cap space to fix their issues upfront. Scherff would slot in at right guard, which is the weakest part of an already-weak unit. Signing Scherff almost makes too much sense, especially since Cincinnati has been uncharacteristically spending big in free agency recently. This feels like a win-win move for both sides.

1. Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins desperately need to revamp this offensive line. Miami graded out as the league's worst pass-blocking team and third-worst run-blocking team in 2021, according to ProFootballFocus. That's not how you support a developing young QB like Tua Tagovailoa. The Dolphins have more projected cap space than any other team in the league, and this is the type of big swing they need to take to fix the front five. He'd be a massive upgrade over Austin Jackson, who has failed to impress since entering the league as a first-round pick in 2020.
