NFL Free Agency Frenzy


NFL free-agency has only started one day ago and the entire league has been turned inside out! This drastic change in player landscape throughout the league in just one day has fans on the edge of their seats just waiting for the next unexpected and major announcement! This has definitely been one of the greatest off-season's for the NFL and we are only one day removed from the start of free-agency.

Here is a summary of the biggest moves  and shocking announcements that have been made thus far:
  • The New Orleans Saints traded TE Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks for C Max Unger and draft picks
  • The NJ Jets signed CB's Darrell Revis  and Buster Sprine as well as trading for WR Brandon Marshall
  • The NYG signed ex-Patriot RB Shane Vereen, ex-Cowboy return specialist Dwayne Harris, and LB Jonathan Casillas
  • Ndamukong Suh reportedly agreed to a record setting deal with the Miami Dolphins
  • The Jacksonville Jaguars are reportedly signing TE Julius Thomas
  • The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to terms with WR Jeremy Maclin and signed S Tyvon Branch
  • The Eagles traded RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for LB Kiko Alonso, and QB Nick Foles for QB Sam Bradford and a draft pick, as well as signing ex-Seahawk CB Byron Maxwell, and pass rusher Trent Cole
  • Baltimore Ravens trade Haloti Ngata to the Detroit Lions for a draft pick
  • Frank Gore backs out of deal with the Philadelphia Eagles and signs with the Indianapolis Colts
  • The San Francisco 49ers signed WR Torrey Smith
  • The Carolina Panthers signed WR/ST Ted Ginn Jr after being released by the Arizona Cardinals
  • The Oakland Raiders signed former Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith
  • The Denver Broncos moved on from TE Julius Thomas by signing TE Owen Daniels
  • The Cleveland Browns signed WR Brian Hartline after being released by the Miami Dolphins
  • The Seattle Seahawks re-signed RB Marshawn Lynch
  • The Green Bay Packers re-signed WR Randall Cobb
  • Tennessee QB Jake Locker has retired at the age of 26
  • 49ers LB Patrick Willis retired at the age of 30

It will be interesting to see what else occurs in the upcoming months prior to the NFL Draft and the start of the 2015-16 NFL season. Big names have already been on the move with plenty more still available. Where will RB DeMarco Murray end up? Will the Jets land Marcus Mariota to complete their offseason spending spree? Questions still remain but it will surly be an exciting free-agency period!
