The NFL’s free agency period kicked off at midnight last night, and all 32 teams have are off and racing. With each team trying to get the early advantage on the competition, and scoop up the talent quickly. The front runner so far would be the Washington Redskins as they have signed defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to a seven-year $100 million dollar deal. And that’s after they resigned cornerback DeAngelo Hall to a six-year $54 million deal just a few hours before they snagged Haynesworth.
So what’s next now that the league’s best free agent and most wanted man is off the market? For the Miami Dolphins it’s re-signing a few key components of their club last season. The Dolphins were very busy before the free agency period as they brought back Yeremiah Bell, Vernon Carey and Channing Crowder. To top that off they got a steal in the signing of safety Gibril Wilson who was released earlier in the week by the Oakland Raiders in a salary cap move.
I’ll be back later today with the latest happenings on the New England Patriots, New York Jets and the rumors surrounding key players like T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Bart Scott and Ray Lewis and others. So stay tuned as these signings will pop up quickly, as each NFL team WILL do whatever it takes to make the run for Lombardi Trophy next seasons!
