This is just one of a bevy of articles I will compose in the next several hours, that are based on the first two days of NFL Free Agency. This one is going to be an outline of the biggest moves, by the teams most heavily involved, and how I view them.
New England Patriots: THEY GOT REVIS!!
Denver Broncos: The Broncos’ moves are sexy, risky, Redskin-like, reek of desperation and might be necessary(major article coming soon).
San Francisco 49ers: Trading for Blaine Gabbert, Jonathan Martin are good, low-risk moves(article coming soon).
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Signing pass rusher Charles Johnson, cornerback Alterraun Verner, tight end Brandon Myers and qb Josh Mccown are all good moves, but releasing Darrelle Revis overshadows all of them(article coming soon).
Indianapolis Colts: Signing D’Qwell Jackson and Arthur Jones, as well as resigning many key pieces has the Colts in a good position heading into next season (article coming soon).
Chicago Bears: Lamarr Houston in exchange for Julius Peppers? Good move.
Cleveland Browns: Signing Karlos Dansby, Donte Whitner and Isiah Trufant are good moves, but are they really better than TJ Ward and D’Qwell Jackson? Also, the releases of quarterbacks Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden make it all the more likely that the team will draft a quarterback in May’s NFL Draft.
Miami Dolphins: The addition of Brandon Alert provides huge relief for a team desperate for o-line help. The addition DT Earl Mitchell and free safety Louis Delmas as well the resigning of Randy Starks help the team prepare for a good future.
Detroit Lions: Signing Golden Tate gives team a legit #2 wide receiver alongside Calvin Johnson, gives team flexibility heading into NFL Draft.
New Orleans Saints: Jairus Byrd for Malcolm Jenkins is a vast improvement, but is it worth the ire of star tight end Jimmy Graham?
Free agency has just begun, and more major moves are sure to come. Stay tuned, and buckle your seat belts!
