Free-Agent Edge Rusher No. 4

Jonathan Greenard

2023 Team: Houston Texans

If I had to bet on one player from this list, my money would be on Jonathan Greenard joining the Vikings in 2024.

The former Florida Gator is a speed rusher from the outside with good skills and has proven to be an effective sack artist, hitting 12.5 sacks this past season and eight in 2021.

Although an injury cost him half of his 2022 season, Greenard is still a great No. 2 pass rusher with Daniel Hunter back on the roster. Together, they would make an excellent 1-2 punch on the defensive line.

Under new head coach DeMeco Ryans, Greenard had somewhat of a coming-out party in 2023, showing how effective he can be in getting to the passer.
