As free agency within the NFL has gotten started, there were teams that stood out and hit it out the park, some teams stayed flat, while others stayed mutual while making progress.
From the Denver Broncos to the Miami Dolphins, teams was shaking heads around the sports world, particularly the NFL.
Look below to see who so far are biggest winners and losers of NFL free agency, along with the teams that are now in between.
The Denver Broncos have shocked the world when they made the move nobody saw coming, especially from them.
Broncos have traded with the Seattle Seahawks for quarterback Russell Wilson and in exchange they agreed to give the Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock, tight end Noah Fant, defensive lineman Shelby Harris, along with two first-round picks (2022 No. 9 overall and 2023), two second-round picks (2022 No. 40 overall and 2023) and a 2022 fifth-round selection to the Seahawks for Wilson and a 2022 fourth-round pick via Adam Schefter (Espn.com)
This without question puts the Broncos back into divisional contention, along with a possible seed in the 2022 playoffs, if things in Denver goes as planned.
Another team who shocked the world and turned head in the league is the Miami Dolphins who traded five draft picks to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for star wide receiver Tyreek Hill after the organization and Hill’s agent Drew Rosenhaus couldn’t come to an mutual agreement on an extension deal to keep him in Kansas City.
The Chiefs will now have both the #29th overall pick (from Miami) and the #30th picks in this upcoming draft, along with a second – and – fourth round draft picks in 2022, fourth – and – sixth round draft picks in 2023.
There’s no secret that the Steelers are long from done when it comes to team’s needs but you cannot ignore how much progress they’ve made in less than month of free agency.
From signing key players such as former Cardinals and Vikings center Mason Cole (three-year extension), for Chicago Bears guard James Daniels, to signing former Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack to a two-year deal.
The Steelers are yes slowly but surely taking care of team’s positional needs and doing a great job at it, that’s something you can’t ignore even if you want to. The black and gold could be back on the rise soon, real soon before we all know it if this keeps up.
The Bengals without question is coming off their best season since 1988. A legit argument can be made that they were an offensive line away from their first ever Super Bowl win in franchise history. One thing for sure, the Bengals are addressing their offensive line issues starting with signing former Dallas Cowboys offensive line mean La’el Collins to a two – year deal with the team.
Even though they still have quite a way to go with the dress nice issues to ensure that Joe barrel it’s not the most sad quarterback this year, you cannot ignore the progress they are making an address in those issues.
But if they really want to make this year free agency like no other, they must find a way to pay star safety Jessie bates the money he’s requesting and sign him to a long-term deal with the team to keep them as a Bengal.
Without question, the Seattle Seahawks are the biggest losers so far in for agency this year.
Even though both parties have agreed on the trade deal, it was still careless of the Seahawks to trade away once in a lifetime generational talent in Russell Wilson, along with that releasing linebacker Bobby Wagner in the process.￼
Many will say that then forgot “hoodwinked “but at the end of the day they’re the ones with them once in a lifetime talent, but the Seahawks are going to struggle for at least 3 to 4 years would find someone that can replace Wilson.
And as for replacing Wagner, the Seahawks are bound to struggle with that to do today on right now being very thin on roster depth within the linebacker position.
