Back to Football: FREE AGENCY

Posted on Updated on

 

I have been on various sports pages, various new reporters and this is the information on free agency had some major and minor signings as well as releases, I will name the signings and trades which will make an impact to the next season as well as the teams.

 

Former Steelers players: DE Ziggy Hood was signed by Jacksonville Jaguars.

·         LB Lamarr Woodley signed with the Oakland Raiders for $12 Million, 2 year contract. Woodley is going to a team who are unfortunately is not relevant in their division which is controlled by Denver and recently Kansas City. I wish him the best for him though.

·         LB James Harrison was cut by Cincinnati Bengals after just one year, this was freeing $1.43 Million in cap space. This was not a huge surprise due to last season’s injury and his lack of performance. There are some who say that he should return to the Steelers but I do not see that happening plus similar to Clark I believe it is time for Harrison to reign in the towel and retire.

·         WR Emmanuel Sanders visited with Jacksonville Jaguars and met with Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

·         DL Cam Thomas to interview with Pittsburgh Steelers tomorrow.

·         S Mike Mitchell has signed with the Steelers

 

Now onto the rest of NFL Free Agency

·         Former Broncos WR Eric Decker had signed a deal worth $36.25M for 5 year to the New York Jets

·         Darelle Revis was signed with the New England Patriots for $12 million one year deal.

·         The main news which surprised me was LB Darren Sproiles who was traded by New Orleans Saints to Philadelphia Eagles for the 5th round pick, which in my opinion is a devalue of Sproiles but the Eagles are making moves to be relevant competitors in NFC East as well as NFC.

·         WR Steve Smith was released by the Carolina Panthers but there is word that the Baltimore Ravens are interested in picking him up.

·         DT Vince Wilfork asking to be released from New England Patriots states he will not restructure his contract.

·         DE Justin Tuck has signed with the Oakland Raiders for $11 Million, 2 year deal.

·         San Diego Chargers have signed QB Clemmons to a 2 Year deal it is unknown the amount.

·         DL Jason Hatcher is reportedly signing with Washington Redskins

·         Tackle Roger Saffold was to sign with Oakland Raiders but failed his physical and resigned with St Louis Rams

·          

Raiders seem to be the main team moving forward in regard to signing players.

Steelers as usual are a team who are silent on who they sign plus who they sign are normally no big names or they await the draft season.
