We’re just over a week into the NFL free agency. Some teams have made some big moves, others are cash-strapped with no room to move, and some seem to be patiently waiting on the sidelines. Without further ado, here’s the most recent NFL free agency update, on some of the biggest teams and biggest names.
Arizona Cardinals This was a team that didn’t seem as though they would do much, going into free agency with just about $3 million to play with. But after letting go of Kevin Kolb and Beanie Wells, they had a little more room. They made good with it, signing quarterback Drew Stanton and running back Rashard Mendenhall.
Cleveland Browns The Browns didn’t have a whole lot of wiggle room either, but like the Cardinals they did a nice job with what they had. Not only did they give their defensive line a boost with Paul Kruger and Desmond Bryant, but they got them for cheap, too.
Denver Broncos The biggest moves this team made involved those already on the team. They franchised left tackle Ryan Clady and signed wide receiver Wes Welker and guard Louis Vazquez. That will give Peyton Manning more support, despite the fact that they also let defensive end Elvis Dumervil go.
Miami Dolphins The Dolphins had lots of money to spend, and spend they did. Most of their cash went to signing linebackers Ellerbe and Philip Wheeler, as well as wide receiver Mike Wallace. They got wide receiver Brandon Gibson and tight end Dustin Keller for a bit less.
San Francisco 49ers Although they let go of free safety Dashon Goldson, as well as a few other players. They signed Craig Dahl to take over Goldson’s duties, and they also picked up wide receiver Anquan Boldin and defensive end Glenn Dorsey.
Of course these are only some of the teams, and some of the biggest moves that have happened. Did anything happen with your team that we missed this time around? What do you think was the best move made by any team?
