Packers get Martellus Bennett, Patriots counter by getting Brandin Cooks. Solid pick up for both franchises.

Did not see this one happening... but good. Along with Butler, WR is not a necessity in the draft.

The contract T. Williams. Much better. I can live with that deal. Welcome back, :lol:

Chris Baker is better. So they are going to let him go?

Redskins are a mess. And as far as McClain - can't blame the guy for taking their money. Cowboys are in no position to give him that kind of jack.

I'm not bothered he is gone. IMHO, he surely wasn't worth what he was asking for.

He was useful. Useful isn't worth as much as he got. He's a guy. Guys are replaceable.

Did Paea really put up 49 reps on the bench press at the Combine? Not that, that really means anything but damn that dude is strong as hell!

Lots of wheelings and dealings this free agency, seems like just about every team has made some big deals.

A few that I'm most intrigued by:

Pryor to the Redskins
Jackson to Bucs
Glennon to Bears (not that I think it's a good move, I'm just interested to see it)
Woodhead to Ravens
Peppers and Munnerlyn returning to Carolina (obviously)

They picked up Dwayne Allen from the Colts. Bill was done with Bennett before that. Traded for Dwayne Allen.

Peppers getting a fairwell tour , see what he got left. Glennon to Bears its ok signing. Jackson with Younger team could be intresting. Pryor replaces Jackson. Woodhead, on the downside of his career i think..

Connor Barwin visited the Bengals yesterday... and there´re rumors about a possible Jets/Bengals trade (McCarron for Sheldon Richardson).

My (first) choices...

Le´Veon Bell - Steelers
Eric Berry - Chiefs
Kirk Cousins - Redskins
Kawann Short - Panthers
Chandler Jones - Cardinals
Alshon Jeffrey - Eagles
Melvin Ingram - Falcons
Calais Campbell - Redskins
Brandon Williams - Ravens
Jason Pierre Paul - Saints
Jamie Collins - Browns
Kevin Zeitler - Giants
Stephon Gilmore - Panthers
AJ Bouye - Texans
Donta Hightower - Patriots
Dontari Poe - Chiefs
Martellus Bennett - Patriots
DeSean Jackson - Eagles
Terelle Pryor - Browns
TJ Lang - Seahawks
Nick Perry - Packers
Trumaine Johnson - Rams
Tony Jefferson - Panthers
Ricky Wagner - Ravens
Barry Church - Cowboys

Feel free to put in any other interesting FA´s and your opinion regarding their next steps...

At least a few were correct :lol:

But credit to myself, their were a lot of rumors regarding Campbell/Redskins, Lang/Seahawks and Jackson/Eagles. :nod: :wink:

Allen isn't that good and he's even more injury prone than Gronk. That was a weird trade for the Pats.

Hard to judge him too much, because he's going from Andrew Luck to Tom Brady...huge difference.

Also, he only had one year in which he missed significant time.
