It’s inherently stressful for wild animals — who naturally shun contact with humans and are extremely sensitive to environmental changes — to be hauled around, used as props, and exposed to noisy crowds, with or without explosives going off.

In appreciation of Avery Bradley’s considerable defensive chops.
Steph Curry is ice cold from three right now, but somehow hit this absurd shot.
The year started off rough, but Karl-Anthony Towns is putting together a truly spectacular second season. You know, the Timberwolves are still not completely out of the playoff race …
I’m a sucker for these surprise military family reunions at sporting events. The Jazz pulled this one off exceptionally well.

Adrian Peterson joined the list on Feb. 28 when the Vikings announced that they wouldn’t pick up his contract option for 2017. He’s listed at No. 80.

A few notes about our top 100 list.
This list, as with any kind of rankings, is subjective. The SB Nation NFL staff worked together to create it. We put a great deal of thought into it, but you will inevitably disagree with it. That’s fine. Save your tweets. We know. This is merely a guide to help the world keep track of which free agents are signing where.
