FREE AGENCY DAY 1 RECAP
Day 1 of the new league year was something to witness. We saw players move, players stay put and we actually saw what looks to be an NBA style salary dump in regards to the Browns and Texans Brock Osweiler trade.
The Philadelphia Eagles made live alot easier for QB Carson Wentz with the signings of Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and OG Chance Warmack. Before they started revamping the offense a key defensive player was let go. Connor Barwin was released and is moving forward to the next chapter of his career.
The Jacksonville Jaguars seen to have endless money because it seems like every offseason they sign multiple free agency at high price tags. This year they have brought in Calais Campbell, A.J. Bouye and Barry Church in hopes of building a solid defense to go with Allen Robinson, Blake Bortles and that offense.
The Tennessee Titans signed CB Logan Ryan and Safety Johnathan Cyprien to bluster the defense and they are still in talks with the New Orleans Saints to try and Add Brandin Cooks to Their offense.
DeSean Jackson (Buccaneers) and Pierre Garcon (49ers) both left Washington on the same day that Dennis Allen took over full GM duties after firing Scot McCloughan. Chris Baker is also headed to Tampa with DeSean Jackson. The team did re-sign Vernon Davis and have WR Terrelle Pryor coming in for a visit with hopes of signing him.
Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots lost Logan Ryan but signed Stephon Gilmore. They could also lose Malcolm Butler of this Brandin Cooks deal gets done. Dont’a Hightower will be one of the top free agents on the radar for day 2.
