It's a somewhat slow time in the NFL. The gap between the conclusion of pro days and the NFL draft (a gap that's wider this year with the draft pushed back to May 8) contains a ton of speculation but very little action.

However, that isn't to say there's nothing going on. With the deadline to exercise a fifth-year option on players entering the fourth year of their contracts rapidly approaching, teams across the NFL are faced with big decisions regarding the stars of the 2011 NFL draft.

The big players in free agency may have already found new homes, but that doesn't mean the signings have stopped altogether. In fact, just last week a former 2,000-yard rusher in running back Chris Johnson changed teams when he joined the New York Jets.

Here's a look at those teams and how recent roster moves may influence how they approach things in New York next month.
