NFL Free Agency 2015: Tracking All the Latest Signings
The 2015 NFL free-agency period officially opened Tuesday. Heavy anticipation precedes this pivotal point of the offseason, but several of the biggest names on the open market appear to have already chosen their destinations.
Striking agreements prior to the official start of the league year does take away some of the overall suspense from the free-agency process.
However, there is still a wealth of talent available with proven NFL experience and production, which teams won't find when the draft begins in late April. Salary-cap situations will dictate just how much front offices can pay out, so it's worth monitoring how offseason spending impacts their bottom-line wages.
Check back to this tracker to get the latest updates on all of the notable NFL free-agent signings, courtesy of NFL.com's list of transactions.

The 28-year-old defensive end had his breakout over the last two season in Dallas, racking up seven sacks in 2013, and three more in 2014. While he's not a star, Selvie is a solid pass rushing option for a Giants team that could use some help on the defensive line.
Dante Rosario Re-SIgns with Bears
Dante Rosario has re-signed with the Chicago Bears on a one-year deal, per the team's official Twitter account.
The 30-year-old tight end will be entering his ninth season in the NFL, and his third with the Bears. Last season he had 16 receptions for 116 yards.
Tony Moeaki Signs with Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons announced that they had signed Tony Moeaki on Thursday.
The 27-year-old is a solid fit for the Falcons, who need depth at tight end. While he played in just six games for the Seattle Seahawks in 2014, the former Kansas City Chief has shown himself to be both a capable blocker and receiver in years past. If he's healthy, he'll be a high-value signing for Atlanta.
Byron Stingily Re-Signs with Titans
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported that the Tennessee Titans signed Byron Stingily to a two-year deal worth $2.5 million, with another $800,000 in incentives.
The 26-year-old provides the Titans with some much-needed offensive-line depth. While he's not a starting-quality tackle, he's capable of slotting in on either side of the offensive line. He started five games last season, tying a career high.
Dwayne Bowe to Sign with Browns
Bowe, 30, hauled in 60 catches for 754 yards last season with the Chiefs, though he failed to find the end zone even once. With the Browns quarterback situation up in the air, Cleveland will hope Bowe can bring consistency to a passing attack that desperately needs it.

Williams has seen his effectiveness wane over the last season in Carolina, but the veteran running back is a great fit to back up LeVeon Bell in Pittsburgh.

Darren McFadden Signs with Cowboys
Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that McFadden agreed to a two-year deal in Dallas.
McFadden is a risky signing for Dallas, who need help at running back after DeMarco Murray's departure to Philadelphia. While he has talent, the former Raider has issues staying healthy, and was ineffective throughout last season, which also happened to be his first ever playing all 16 games. If McFadden can put his injury issues behind him and bounce back to previous levels, this could be a great deal for the Cowboys.
Chris Culliver Signs with Redskins
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reported that Culliver was signing a four-year deal in Washington, while Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that it would pay the corner $8 million per year. The Redskins later confirmed the two sides had reached an agreement.
Culliver fills a major need for the Redskins, who have major holes that need filling in the secondary. While Culliver has some inconsistencies as a defender, he's a solid option who should slot immediately into the starting lineup in Washington.
Brian Orakpo Signs with Titans
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the deal, while Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports reported that the contract was worth $32 million over four years, with a max value of $35 million, and $13.5 million guaranteed.
Orakpo represents a high-risk, high-reward signing for the Titans; he racked up 10 sacks in 15 games in 2013, but has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career, playing just two games in 2012 and seven games in 2014. If he's healthy, this deal could be a great value.
Derrick Morgan Re-Signs with Titans

Willie Colon Re-Signs with Jets
Jarius Wynn Re-Signs with Bills
The Buffalo Bills re-signed defensive end Jarius Wynn to a two-year deal worth $2.2 million, per ESPN.com's Mike Rodak.
Wynn is 28 years old and should add depth to an already stacked defensive front that boasts Kyle Williams, Marcell Dareus, Mario Williams and Jerry Hughes. After recording 2.5 sacks in 2014, he'll return under defensive guru Rex Ryan as a rotational player.
Marcus Easley Re-Signs with Bills
The Bills re-signed one of their top special teams players in wide receiver Marcus Easley, per ESPN's Mike Rodak. It's a four-year deal worth $7 million.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Eagles have signed Ryan Mathews to a three-year, $11.5 million deal with $5 million guaranteed.

The Bears announced they've reached a five-year agreement with linebacker Pernell McPhee. McPhee had 7.5 sacks as a member of the Baltimore Ravens in 2014.

Lofton is entering his eighth NFL season. The Atlanta Falcons drafted him in the second round in 2008. After four seasons with the team, he spent three years with the New Orleans Saints.

Dan Williams Signs with Raiders
