Los Angeles Chargers
Matt Feiler, OT — 3 years, $25.3M (beforehand with Pittsburgh Steelers)
Corey Linsley, C — 5 years, $62.5M (beforehand with Green Bay Packers)The Chargers receive their quarterback in Justin Herbert and know they must repair the line.

Adam Pankey, OT — 1 year, $2.13M (beforehand with Green Bay Packers)
Minnesota Vikings
Patrick Peterson, CB — 1 year, $10M (beforehand with Arizona Cardinals)Peterson is a stellar pickup for the secondary-needy Vikings. While he’s also coming into the abet-conclude of his occupation, Minnesota didn’t overpay, or prolong this deal too long to the place they might maybe regret it at some point soon.Grade: A
Dalvin Tomlinson, DT — 2 years, $21M (beforehand with Contemporary York Giants)The Vikings compulsory abet in the trenches on every aspect of the ball, so spending a smartly-organized amount of their available cap on a nose take care of is outlandish at simplest. It’s no longer that Tomlinson is immoral, or that right here is a immoral signing, it’s extra than with small assets I don’t cherish going to this point in on one player like this.Grade: C
Carve Virgil, OLB — 1 year, $1.75M (beforehand with Los Angeles Chargers)

Jalen Mills, S — 4 years, $24M (beforehand with Philadelphia Eagles)
Jonnu Smith, TE — 4 years, $50M (beforehand with Tennessee Titans)This appears to be like a form of cash, nonetheless it’s a sneaky best signing. Smith is the extra or less purpose-line receiver the Patriots need, and can provide a security receive for Cam Newton who has beloved roam catching tight ends over the direction of his occupation. At 25, Smith has plenty left in the tank and can receive a role similar to that of Steal Gronkowski when he modified into as soon as in Contemporary England.Grade: A-

Contemporary York Jets
Corey Davis, WR — 3 years, $37.5M (beforehand with Tennessee Titans)In a identical whisk to Jacksonville, the Jets stamp they need weapons and got a first rate one. It’s unclear who might be throwing the ball for the Jets subsequent season, nonetheless at final the crew has a valid No. 1 receiver to present whoever is given the ball.Grade: A
Jarrad Davis, ILB — 1 year, $5.5M (beforehand with Detroit Lions)
Justin Hardee, CB — 3 years, $6.75M (beforehand with Contemporary Orleans Saints)
Carl Lawson, DE — 3 years, $45M (beforehand with Cincinnati Bengals)Lawson is a solid defensive conclude, nonetheless this appears to be like rather of an overpay. That said, if there’s anybody who can unlock Lawson’s plump possible it’s Robert Salah, and he’ll receive enjoyable transferring the versatile roam rusher around.Grade: B-
Philadelphia Eagles
Pittsburgh Steelers
B.J. Finney, C — 1 year (beforehand with Seattle Seahawks)
San Francisco 49ers
Samson Ebukam, OLB — 2 years, $12M (beforehand with Los Angeles Rams)
Alex Mack, C — (beforehand with Atlanta Falcons)
Trent Williams, OT — 6 years, $138M (beforehand with Washington Soccer Group)The 49ers aren’t taking part in around with their must abet their quarterback and splashed colossal on getting one of essentially the most straightforward offensive linemen in the NFL. The very best area is that it’s unclear who might be taking part in QB for San Francisco subsequent year. Either manner, right here is a first rate signing, assuming the crew can discover a passer to hold plump very neatest thing about the protection.Grade: A
Seattle Seahawks
Gerald Everett, TE — 1 year, $6M (beforehand with Los Angeles Rams)
Gabe Jackson, OG — Traded from Las Vegas Raiders for a 2021 fifth spherical hold.

Bud Dupree, OLB — 5 years, $82.5M (beforehand with Pittsbugh Steelers)Dupree is a outlandish case. On the one hand he’s an very best defender who discover the Titans higher, nonetheless I’m unsure he’s the extra or less player who if truth be told adjustments the crew’s fortune. It’s rather puzzling to me upright now, nonetheless might maybe discover extra sense as time goes on.Grade: B-
Janoris Jenkins, CB — (beforehand with Contemporary Orleans Saints)
Kendall Lamm, DE — 2 years, $6.8M (beforehand with Cleveland Browns)
Washington Soccer Group
Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB — 1 year, $10M (beforehand with Dallas Cowboys)
William Jackson, CB — 3 years, $40.5M (beforehand with Cincinnati Bengals)The majority of Washington’s free agency cash went to landing a prized cornerback, nonetheless I receive questions. The realm wasn’t WFT’s defense final year, it modified into as soon as offense — and I ponder it would had been far extra helpful to enhance that aspect of the ball. That said, overwhelming with defense is a viable technique, assuming the crew can finish handiest ample on offense to discover all of it work.Grade: B+
Lamar Miller, RB — 1 year (beforehand with Contemporary England Patriots)
Curtis Samuel, WR — 3 years, $34.5M (beforehand with Carolina Panthers)One in all my approved pickups this offseason. The whisk reunites Samuel with Ron Rivera, who reportedly compulsory to alternate for the receiver final season, and now will get him without giving up a hold. A deep threat, finish-every part weapon, Samuel is on the verge of breaking out for a 1,000 yard seasonGrade: A+
