Day 3 of 2014 NFL free agency has drawn to a close, and you know what that means: It's time to declare winners and losers from the bevy of signings and transactions.
After Day's 1 and 2 operated at a breakneck pace, Day 3 was slow by comparison. There were a few jaw-dropping moments, but for the most part, it was a relatively quiet 24 hours, at least by NFL standards.
One of the most electric playmakers in the league was traded, and to a conference rival. The Dallas Cowboys lost yet another stud pass rusher. One of the strangest sagas in the history of free agency drew to a close. And for the second time in three days, the greatest player in the history of a particular franchise was released, and this time in questionable fashion.
Things are capable of changing on a dime, so it's important to not extrapolate a team's success in 2014 based on being either a winner or loser on this list. There's still valuable time left in the free agent period, and the draft is just two months away.
Day 3's winners were chosen because teams either made a series of quality signings (welcome to the party, Oakland!) or acquired a game-changing player via trade.
Day 3's losers were chosen because of the curious nature of an important transaction or a team losing either one or more quality players.
Without further ado, here are the winners and losers from Day 3 of 2014 NFL free agency.
