NFL defensive end Jurrell Casey is coming off of a 2020 season in which he only played in three games for the Denver Broncos and posted 14 tackles and no sacks. The veteran lineman now heads into the offseason as a free agent after his recent release from the team.

Multiple NFL teams are looking to create depth and stability along the defensive line before the 2021 NFL season kicks off. Casey comes along with 10 years of NFL experience. With that in mind, here are the three most likely free agent destinations for Casey.

Jurrell Casey Free Agency

1. Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills were one of the best teams in the AFC during the 2020 season and now head into the offseason with high hopes. Buffalo has created an atmosphere that players likely want to join and should be seen as a top landing spot for Casey. The Bills need to build depth along a defensive line that averaged 2.3 sacks per game last season (T-No. 14 in the NFL). Casey was named to five straight Pro Bowls from 2015-2019 and could be motivated to show that he can still be a major contributor. As a noted team in the JJ Watt hunt, this could be a move the Bills opt to go for instead.

2. Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons are stuck in the middle of deciding whether to rebuild or try to compete while they still can. Signing a player like Casey would benefit the team no matter what the decision is as he can mentor the young players on the roster or rack up tackles and sacks as a starter. Falcons' new Head Coach Arthur Smith was part of a Tennessee Titans' staff that coached Casey and has seen what he can do firsthand. Atlanta averaged just 1.8 sacks per game last season (Tied for ninth-least in the NFL), so adding Casey would be an upgrade in every sense.

3. Tennessee Titans

A reunion with the team that drafted him in the third round of the 2011 NFL draft is certainly a possibility here. Although Casey may still have a sour taste in his mouth from being dumped from the team last season, he had his best seasons while playing with the Titans. Plus, Tennessee needs help along the defensive line as only one player on the roster had more than 3 sacks last season (Harold Landry - 5.5). The Titans fell in the Wild Card round of the playoffs last season, but have proven to be a contending team and would only improve more by signing Casey back. Keep an eye on this scenario.
