NFL free agency officially started yesterday afternoon even though we've been hearing about deals since the weekend, and we were greeted with a plethora of unexpected, game-changing moves. Who are the biggest winners from free agency thus far?
Seattle had one big need they needed to address this offseason in finding a true go to receiver, and they filled it in a big way by trading for TE Jimmy Graham. He has proven to be one of the best - if not the best - tight end in the league, and will give quarterback Russell Wilson a reliable No. 1 target for the foreseeable future.
They were also able to retain Pro Bowl running back Marshawn Lynch, who has been the focal point of their offense since being traded to Seattle in 2010, and signed CB Cary Williams to replace Byron Maxwell.
The Dolphins started the offseason over the salary cap, but made several moves that allowed them to keep one of their best offensive players in TE Charles Clay (for now) and sign DT Ndamukong Suh, the best free agent on the market. Miami has narrowly missed out on the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, but the acquisition of Suh should push them over the top.
The Jets managed to pry CB Darrelle Revis away from the New England Patriots with a huge deal that makes him the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history. That was enough to put them on this list, but they also rid themselves of the locker room cancer that is Percy Harvin and brought in Buster Skrine to help Revis in the secondary.
