Day 1 of the NFL Free Agency period has concluded and Day 2 is in effect (Eastern Time) as I type this. But this blog is about Day One. As reported earlier, In the wee hours of the morning when the Washington Redskins kicked off Free Agency with the biggest signing of FA. Lets say 7 Years 100 Million Dollars to a Defensive Lineman named Albert Haynesworth. This wouldn’t be the only signing that happened today but it held the spotlight throughout the day. Other signings that went down included Bart Scott going to the Jets, Fred Taylor Going to the Patriots, Kellen Winslow being Traded to the Buccaneers and Derrick Dockery signing with the Redskins. Oh and lets not forget Chris Backer to the Pats, and Deangelo Hall being resigned to a big deal himself.
As much as I would like to give you all of Day 1 Signings, I just can’t, But you can follow all the free agents through NFL.com’s Free Agent Tracker.
There are still some key players out there on the market though, this includes guys like MLB Ray Lewis, WR Laveranues Coles, WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh, and many more. Day 1 was packed but Day 2 should be yet, another interesting day of signings.
