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.

  • The Prince Connection: Rodgers and Nelson July 7, 2014
    If you follow along over at my Twitter account @FG_Dolan (shameless plug), you’ve probably noticed my undying love for Jordy Nelson, and the fact that I’d happily welcome him onto any of my fantasy teams this year.
