NFL Free Agency is basically here. Come 11 a.m. central time, teams are allowed to contact and enter into contract negotiations with players who will become Unrestricted Free Agents. Today may not have the major booms of the first real day of FA, but there is still TONS of news to try and wade through. You’re a busy individual, and I (clearly) am not. So, this “live blog” so to speak will house all important NFL Free Agency news for the Legal Tampering Period.
Before we begin, remember the number one rule of NFL Free Agency:
Sendejo Option Not Picked Up:
This year free agency pool of safeties just got deeper.
Malik Jackson Is An Eagle, 3yr/30M:
Woof. That’s pretty solid for the Eagles. No compensatory picks going to Jax because he was cut. Cox and Jackson is a strong duo. I thought this was interesting…
Housekeeping From Late Last Night: Weddle and Fowler Are Rams. Weddle 2yr/12.5M
NFL Network Man Says Packers Have Eyes On Patterson:
Loaded Box Pod Guest Ben Allbright Chimes In About The Jets “Hitting The Kwan”:
Sick reference by me.
UPDATE 12:49 P.M. : The 49ers will sign Kwon. Adam Schefter Reports 27M GTD
Holy shit that seems like a lot.
The Queenie Russini Gives Us Amendola To The Lions:
Patricia will be fired come next Feb.
Adrian Amos Interest Ramping Up:
I have a feeling my 8M a year guess may go out the window soon…
Raiders Are…Uh…Doing Something! Trent Brown 4/66M/36.75MGTD
PFF has this guy as the 32nd rated T in the NFL. Now the highest paid in NFL history. I have a feeling the “2 steps forward, 3 steps back” Raiders era will be continuing for some time.
Vikings Mass Exodus Continues
Vikings trying to clear some money the best they can.
Jason Peters Will Stay An Eagle, 5.5MGTD With A Potential For 10M
Would have been weird seeing him anywhere else.
Emmanuel Sanders Stays In Denver
Jermaine Gresham Has Been Cut:
In the words of Aaron Nagler, “Maybe”.
Odell On The Market:
Name me the last super bowl winning team with a “diva” WR. Go ahead. Tell me.
UPDATE 12:15 P.M. :
DJax Seems To Be On The Move From Tampa (Update: DJax Traded To Philly)
Great? Great experience? Ok Desean…
Mort seems to think an Eagles reunion is on the horizon.
Update: 4:04 p.m. : Right you were Mort
Kevin Johnson To The Bills
Third Leg Greg To ESPN?
Earl Thomas Wants To Get Paid More Than Eric Berry
Packers Doing Some Tendering
CJ Mosely Might Get Stupid Money:
We still paying MLB’s more than 10 Mil per year? Is it 2002 or what?
BDN Update. Silver Thinks 20M+:
Update To The BDN Update: Nick Foles To Jacksonville on 4yr/88M/50MGTD (Per Schefter):
I hate the NFL sometimes.
Bortles To Be Released:
Justin Coleman To The Lions:
Jets And Bears Leading The Race For Bell?
Landon Collins Lands In Washington For 6/84M/45MGTD:
Every year I underestimate the market. I can’t believe how nuts these next few days are going to be.
Trey Flowers To The Lions 5yr/16-17M Per:
They’re forking out a ton of money to go 8-8
Uzomah Stays A Bengal 3yr/18M
Robertson and Banjo, Stay In New Orleans
Crowder Lands With Jets, 3YR/28.5M/17MGTD
Lions Continue To Lions
Kenny Vaccaro Gets 4yr/26M/11.5GTD From Titans
This feels like a good down to earth deal to me after the recent lunacy we’ve seen.
Frank Gore Continues To Get Checks, Signs With Bills For 1yr/2M
T-Sizzle Goes Back To Arizona
Maybe this starts a run on vet pass rushers.
Bills Sign TE Kroft for 3yr/18.75M
Isn’t it weird that you always see the same teams go nuts in free agency and never seem to get out of the spiral? Yeah that’s the Lions and the Bills.
