NFL free agency officially begins when the 2020 league year kicks off at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday, but Circa Sportsbook in Las Vegas got an early start on things, releasing win totals for all 32 teams on Sunday night.
Teams can't actually sign players until Wednesday, but the period during which deals could be discussed and agreed upon started on Monday. Circa revealed its win totals less than 24 hours prior to that, with the Baltimore Ravens and reigning Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs leading the pack at 11.5.
Baltimore topped the NFL last season with a franchise-record 14 victories, ending the campaign with 12 in a row after splitting its first four contests. Kansas City finished tied with New England for second in the AFC with 12 triumphs and went on to win the second Super Bowl championship in club history.
Only two other teams were given double-digit totals, with the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints both set at 10.5 wins. San Francisco made a remarkable turnaround in 2019, posting 13 victories after recording only four the previous season and going on to represent the NFC in Super Bowl LIV. New Orleans also had a strong campaign, winning 13 games for the second straight year.
Circa set the 2020 win total for the Green Bay Packers, who also notched 13 victories in 2019, at nine. The Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys, who respectively recorded 11 and eight wins last year, have 9.5 win totals.
The other teams that reached double digits in triumphs last season were given lower totals for 2020. The New England Patriots (12 in 2019) have a win total of nine, the Minnesota Vikings and Houston Texans (10) are at 8.5 and Circa set the win total for the Buffalo Bills (10) at eight.
With their expected selection of 2019 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow with the first overall pick in this year's draft, the Cincinnati Bengals have a 5.5 win total after recording just two victories last year. The Jacksonville Jaguars (six in 2019) and Carolina Panthers (five) share the lowest 2020 win total of 4.5.
