Olamide Zaccheaus, Atlanta Falcons

The most expensive player from last season on this list, Olamide Zaccheaus is also the youngest and possibly the most interesting. An undrafted free agent in 2019, he got better with each of his four years in the league.

Standing five-foot-eight and weighing 193 pounds, Zaccheaus played on a one-year deal with the Falcons worth $2.433 million and more than earned that payday despite playing for an offense that struggled to move the ball through the air.

In 2022, Zaccheaus caught 40 passes for 533 yards and three touchdowns. All of those numbers either set or tied career highs, showing he could continue to improve and evolve as a receiver as he keeps gaining experience.

The fact he worked his way into the starting lineup and has started 23 of his 55 games in the league shows that he works well when given opportunities. If he can be signed for less than $3 million, he could be an interesting addition to the Minnesota Vikings.
