The 2015 NFL free agency period isn't even officially a week old, but there's already some pretty clear winners separating themselves from the pack when it comes to addressing team needs and doing it right. Without further ado, here's our 3 Biggest Winners Of 2015 NFL Free Agency.
The 2014 NFC champions attacked their #1 need this offseason -- finding a true go-to receiver -- with the biggest shock move of the entire free agency season in acquiring former New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham. Along with securing the best TE/WR/whatever hybrid in the game, Seattle also kept their house in order by retaining RB Marshawn Lynch. Lastly, adding Cary Williams and Will Blackmon to help cope with the loss of cornerback Byron Maxwell rounds out what has been an impressive rope-a-dope start to free agency for the Seahawks.
New head coach Todd Bowles will start year one with the team with one of the most impressively overhauled secondaries in recent memory -- bringing lockdown #1 cornerback Darrelle Revis back into the fray while adding CBs Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine on lucrative deals. Add in essentially replacing Percy Harvin with Brandon Marshall (win!) prior to free agency, and the Jets may be a quarterback away (Marcus Mariota, anyone?) from turning the ship completely around.
The Colts' offseason promises to be divisive, as they got older and more expensive at key skill positions (RB Frank Gore, WR Andre Johnson). However, both could very well be big-time short-term coups, strengthening the frame on the team's Super Bowl window in 2015. Add in some sneakily great D-line signings in Trent Cole and Kendall Langford, along with a veteran O-line presence in Todd Herremans (amongst other solid signings), and there's plenty to smile ear-to-ear about in Indy.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
