NFL Free Agency Log

The latest in NFL free agency dealings

  •  
    Terrell Owens (WR) - Buffalo Bills In one of the most surprising offseason moves thus far, T.O. signed a one-year, $6.5 million guaranteed deal with the Bills, just two days after being cut by the Cowboys.
  •  
    Albert Haynesworth (DT) - Washington Redskins After starting his career with the Titans, Haynesworth signed a mammoth seven-year, $100 million contract with the Redskins -- with $41 million guaranteed.
  •  
    Brian Dawkins (S) - Denver Broncos After 13 years with the Eagles and seven Pro Bowls, Dawkins has found a new home. When contract talks failed with the Birds, B-Dawk flew to the Mile-High city and landed a five-year, $17 million deal.
  •  
    Bart Scott (LB) - New York Jets When the free agent market opened at 12:01 a.m. on February 27, the Jets were the first on deck, checkbook in hand. They targeted Scott and lured him away from the Ravens with a six-year, $48 million deal.
  •  
    LaDainian Tomlinson (RB) - Franchised L.T. had a career-low 1,110-yard season in '08. Three weeks after the Chargers put a non-exclusive franchise tag on Darren Sproles, LT agreed to a three-year, multimillion dollar deal. He's due to make $6.62 million next season.
  •  
    Ray Lewis (LB) - Baltimore Ravens After losing Scott, the Ravens were determined to keep the face of the D. Baltimore honored Lewis, a 10-time Pro Bowler, with a seven-year, multimillion dollar deal.
  •  
    Matt Cassel (QB) - Kansas City Chiefs The Chiefs snatched up Cassel and linebacker Mike Vrabel from the Patriots for a second-round pick in the '09 draft.
  •  
    T.J. Houshmandzadeh (WR) - Seattle Seahawks The Seahawks let the zeroes fly, signing Housh to a five-year deal worth $40 million and a $15 million signing bonus to boot.
  •  
    Kurt Warner (QB) - Arizona Cardinals Did the 49ers really think they had a shot at Warner? Or did they know that they were being used to hike up Zona's offer to two-years, $23 million -- and $19 million guaranteed?
  •  
    Nnamdi Asomugha (DB) - Oakland Raiders Oakland busted the DB market when they re-signed Asomugha to a three-year, $45 million deal.
  •  
    Chris Canty (DE) - New York Giants The G-Men emptied the purse on former Cowboy Chris Canty. They also added DT Rocky Bernard and LB Michael Boley for support.
  •  
    Kerry Collins (QB) - Tennessee Titans After leading them to a franchise record 10-0 start last season, the Titans re-signed Collins to a two-year, $15 million contract, with $8.5 million guaranteed.
  •  
    Correll Buckhalter (RB) - Denver Broncos The unrestricted free agent and former Eagles' running back bounced West to Denver for a four-year deal.
  •  
    J.J. Arrington (RB) - Denver Broncos If Buckhalter is the Broncos new 1-A back, then Arrington, who also signed a four-year deal has to be considered 1-B.
  •  
    Mike Peterson (LB) - Atlanta Falcons The Falcons were ineffective at stopping the run last season. To fix the problem, Atlanta lured Peterson, an 11-year veteran, away from Jacksonville.
  •  
    DeAngelo Hall (DB) - Washington Redskins After making Albert Haynesworth the highest-paid lineman in the league, the 'Skins emptied the purse on Hall, re-signing him to a six-year, $55 million contract.
  •  
    Shawn Springs (CB) - New England Patriots With the Skins' signing of Albert Haynesworth came the cutting Spings. Luckily for the 33-year-old Springs, the Pats tend to favor experience over youth.
  •  
    Fred Taylor (RB) - New England Patriots To clear cap space, the Jags released Taylor on February 16. Eleven days later he was picked up on by the Pats on a two-year deal.
  •  
    Channing Crowder (LB) - Miami Dolphins Crowder became an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, but was re-signed by the Dolphins to a multi-year deal.
  •  
    Jonathan Vilma (LB) - New Orleans Saints Despite his off-the-field troubles, the Saints decided to re-sign Vilma to a 5-year, $34 million contract.
  •  
    Tra Thomas (OT) - Jacksonville Jaguars The three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro selection has found himself a sunnier home. Looking to add a wall alongside guard Cameron Stephenson, the Jags pounced on Thomas with a multi-year deal.
  •  
    Brandon Jacobs (RB) - New York Giants The force behind "Earth, Wind & Fire" rushed for over 1,000 yards in '08. The Giants saw fit to keep their backfield fertile, re-signing Jacobs to a multi-year contract worth $25 million.
  •  
    Derrick Ward (RB) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers With Warrick Dunn gone, the Bucs needed a proficient runner. They found it, signing the 28-year-old Ward to a four-year, $17 million contract.
  •  
    Gibril Wilson (S) - Miami Dolphins Some saw the Raiders' decision to cut ties with Wilson as a move long overdue; the Dolphins saw it as an opportunity to rope in an experienced safety with a five-year deal worth $25 million.
  •  
    Jeff Saturday (C) - Indianapolis Colts The three-time Pro Bowler has 13.3 million new reasons to protect Peyton Manning.
  •  
    Jeff Garcia (QB) - Unrestricted Free Agent Garcia has been a winner wherever he has played. But NFL teams seem wary to jump in the 39-year-old's waters.
  •  
    Julius Peppers (DE) - Franchised After eight seasons with the Carolina Panthers, Peppers made it known that he wanted out. Despite a thin trade list, reports claim that the Patriots are pursuing the four-time Pro Bowler diligently.
  •  
    Marvin Harrison (WR) - Released After an illustrious career with the Colts, the future Hall of Famer was released by Indy. Hobbled by a knee injury and a slew of bad press last season, Harrison seems like a high-risk signee with fewer-than-expected suitors.
  •  
    Byron Leftwich (QB) - Unrestricted Free Agent When Ben Roethlisberger went down, Leftwich stepped in and played some great QB for the Steelers. So why doesn't anyone seem willing to take a chance on him?
  •  
    Jason Taylor (DE) - Released After an injury-plagued season with the 'Skins, Taylor was cut by Washington, which claimed he refused to participate in spring practice drills. The highly active Bucs are reportedly hot on his trail.
