The best players in the NFL usually do not hit free agency, but last night a lot of good players found new teams. The day started with the Green Bay Packers adding three top tier free agents on the defensive side, in Adrian Amos (CHI), Za’Darius Smith (BAL), and Preston Smith (WAS).
Then later in the day the Jets sign two great linebackers in C.J. Mosley (BAL) and Anthony Barr (MIN), but then Anthony Barr decided to not sign with New York and decided to stay with the Vikings on a lesser rich deal.
Then the Chicago Bears sign KR/WR Cordarrelle Patterson, when minutes later Odell Beckham Jr. gets traded to the Cleveland Browns. The Browns traded away this years 1st round pick, this years 3rd round pick, and 2017 1st round pick Jabrill Peppers. This is the biggest move of the off-season.
When we thought the day was over Le’Veon Bell (PIT) gets signed to the New York Jets. Making March 12th the biggest flip in the NFL in decades.
There have been a whole lot of changes in the NFL, and this does not even include Antonio Brown or the whole NFL Draft.
The NFL is going to be very entertaining for their 100th season.
