Now that we’ve all had some time to catch our breath after a thrilling Super Bowl, let’s get ready for free agency, which officially began on March 14.

Quarterbacks were a hot commodity this offseason. Kirk Cousins was the big prize, and he’s getting the fully guaranteed deal he was looking for from the Vikings. Elsewhere, the Broncos signed Case Keenum, and the Cardinals landed Sam Bradford. Josh McCown is headed back to the Jets, where he’ll be joined by Teddy Bridgewater.

But for the teams who have other holes they’d like to fill, it’s not just about the quarterbacks. Cornerback is one of the more loaded positions this year, with Trumaine Johnson, Aaron Colvin, and Malcolm Butler all joining new teams.

Last year, the majority of the top free agents — Le’Veon Bell, Kawann Short, Chandler Jones, and others — all received the franchise tag. Others, like Eric Berry, Dont’a Hightower, and Calais Campbell, were able to ink new deals of at least four years. Of course, there was also Tony Romo, who opted to retire and entertain us all in the broadcast booth.

This year, Bell is ranked as our No. 1 free agent for the second time in a row, and he received the tag again. Lions pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah, Cowboys pass rusher Demarcus Lawrence, and Rams safety Lamarcus Joyner were all franchise-tagged. Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller was given the transition tag.

The Dolphins also gave receiver Jarvis Landry the franchise tag, but they traded him to the Browns after he signed the tender.

We’ll keep this list updated with players who get cut, as well as signings and for how much. Bookmark this page, add it to the home screen on your smart phone, or any other way that’s convenient for you to easily access it.

With all that said, here is the list:
