This has been the wildest free agency of my generation and it has been great to watch. To see the Patriots get guys, with something left, for close to nothing. To see Tom Cable draw all the former Raiders to Seattle. To see the Eagles sign every starter available. Lastly, to see the St. Louis Rams go under the radar compiling a very solid team.
Welcome to the 2011 off-season!
Between all the trades and free agent moves, this has been an exciting time. What has, for the most part, been tossed aside is the number of key re-signings teams have made in this chaotic period.
Free agents are nice, but it will be the guys that are re-signed that will provide a bigger impact in an off-season lacking OTA’s and mini-camps. Ten guys in particular would have been detrimental to their former teams, one way or another, had they not re-signed.
