NFL free agency

The NFL free agency started of with a few key players moving around. First, the Denver Broncos signed quarterback Case Keenum. The Broncos are hoping that Keenum can emulate his success from last year, where he lead the Minnesota Viking to a heartbreaking NFC Championship game loss.

The Viking continued the theme of losing all of their quarterbacks as Sam Bradford signed with the Cardinals and Teddy Bridgewater signed with the Jets.

The Vikings picked up Kirk Cousins from the Redskins. The Vikings believe Cousins can be their quarterback of the future.

Drew Brees also re-signed with the Saints. This move keeps New Orleans in the hunt for the playoffs and maybe the Super Bowl.

This free agency shook things up quit a bit. Above were the big moves made by teams, but every team made moves that will be significant next year, whether we know it or not. NFL teams are still signing players in free agency even though all the star players are signed. At this point of the year, teams are looking to fill in holes in their team. Most of those holes are at positions like offensive lineman, and getting a third cornerback that fits your system.

After free agency, teams look to secure their future through the draft. The draft allows teams to take risks, and potentially draft a star player. Some teams will be making smaller moves later in the draft while other teams such as the Cleveland Browns will be attempting to draft a franchise player in order to give themselves a glimmer of hope that things will get better.
