The NFL has WAY too much going on right now, due to the long lockout. While teams are starting training camps as I type this, they are also cutting and adding new players to their rosters. It’s a madhouse in the NFL right now, with big names being shifted around to their new homes.
I could break down EVERY transaction done in the last few days, but that would take up too much time. Instead, I’ll break down for you the biggest names that have made moves (or stayed put), since free agency started.
