We won't know for months, if not years, how well all this money thrown around through the first week of free agency was spent, but that won't keep us from trying to qualify it.
When players hit free agency, they usually do so because their original team decided they didn't want them. Well, they at least decided they didn't want them at their asking price.
There are no Jimmy Graham-like franchise-tag bargains in this free market. It takes top dollar and some bold maneuvers by front offices.
We broke down all of the deals agreed upon in the past week that averaged more than $6 million per year. We count 22 of them—there could be more—and outline whether we buy or sell the final numbers of each in this jam-packed slideshow.
