Despite the seemingly nonstop signings the past few days, there are still a lot of big names left on the free agency market. ?Markus Golden, the former ?Arizona Cardinals defensive end, is one of those names still unsigned in a deep pass-rusher free agent market.
Four teams have reportedly expressed interest in Golden, who has had significant injury trouble recently.
His best year was 2016 where he recorded 12.5 sacks. Since then, an ACL tear in October 2017 has limited Golden to only 15 games the last two seasons.

That propensity to be limited to the sidelines hasn’t stopped the Raiders, Chiefs, ?Bucs, and Giants from expressing interest in Golden.
All four teams are relatively weak at the defensive end position.

Kansas City is the only team on the list without coaching ties to Golden. Bruce Arians, now coaching the Bucs, was the head coach in Arizona for a number of years.
Giants defensive coordinator James Bettcher held the same position with the Cardinals under Arians. Raiders defensive line coach Brentson Buckner also coached Golden in Arizona. Where will he end up?
