Every important NFL free agency signing in 2017

The NFL’s big spending spree gets underway on March 9.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL offseason kicks into high gear this week with the start of the free agent period. With the salary cap bumped up to $167 million, plenty of teams have the cash to upgrade key positions before the NFL Draft in late April.

Free agency officially began on March 9 with the start of the new league year, but fans had a good idea of where players are heading before that. March 7-9 is the “legal tampering” period, where teams are free to negotiate with impending free agents before the league year actually begins.

A lot of the biggest names were taken off the market even before they became free agents. Kirk Cousins, Le’Veon Bell, Jason Pierre-Paul, Chandler Jones, Melvin Ingram, Kawann Short, Eric Berry, and Trumaine Johnson all got the franchise tag or signed extensions, meaning that they’re locked into their current teams at the moment.

Still, there were plenty of intriguing talents who hit the open market. Receivers Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson, defensive lineman Calais Campbell, and cornerback A.J. Bouye all landed big paychecks. Meanwhile, high-profile free agents like Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles, and Colin Kaepernick will test the waters as they try to prove they still have enough left in the tank.

Where they go next will be among the top storylines of this year’s offseason, and we’re tracking all the big rumors here.
