Free Agent Tracking

The free agency period has begun, and things are heating up more than ever when it comes to trades, so let’s keep up with it all with my initial reactions to all these moves. All moves added will be the newest, with older additions to this post going down the page.

    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
