If you were hoping that the NFL free agency period was going to kick off with a bang, you’ll be happy to know that it did. Some huge deals were made and some marquee players were sent to different teams.
So what were the highlights? The biggest trade of the day was probably the New Orleans Saints sending Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks. If the Seahawks had Graham to throw to from the one yard line last month in the Super Bowl, they would have probably won. This makes them more dangerous than ever, thanks to the big name tight end who is probably the best red zone target this side of Gronk.
Another huge trade sent Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles to St. Louis in exchange for Rams oft-injured quarterback Sam Bradford.
Oh, and Darrelle Revis is back with the Jets, signing a huge contract that guarantees him $39 million.
