The 2015 NFL Free Agent Transactions Have Been Non-Stop Action


Nothing in the NFL is free, especially the players. The NFL offseason’s free agency period has been wild. Players are switching teams more often than a ‘THOT’ in a hotel lobby. Here’s a shortlist of the 2015 NFL Free Agent transactions that caught our eyes. There will be several new NFL faces in new places in 2016. But only time will tell if this big money will lead to more wins for their respective teams.

Ndamukong Suh Is The Free Agent Top Prize

Ndamukong Suh will receive a six-year contract worth $114 million from the Miami Dolphins. $60 million of his new Dolphins’ contract is guaranteed, according to media reports.

Jacksonville Jaguars Sign Thomas

The Jaguars have signed Julius Thomas, the talented former Broncos’ tight end to a five-year $46 million contract. According to media reports, $24 million of the Thomas contract is guaranteed. We think Johnson will learn that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Jaguars’ quarterback Blake Bortles is not Peyton Manning. Julius Thomas’ production and fantasy football rankings will suffer.

Denver Broncos Sign Tight End Daniels

Owen Daniels was a reliable tight end for the Baltimore Ravens and one of quarterback’s Joe Flacco‘s favorite targets. Can Daniels be a productive replacement for Julius Thomas? For $12 million over three years, GM John Elway is taking a calculated risk and crossing his fingers.

Andre Johnson Joins the Indianapolis Colts

The Colts read the Daniel Snyder book of free agents. Washington gave big-money contracts to defensive end Bruce Smith, cornerback Deion Sanders, and quarterback Jeff George in 2000. Now it’s Indy who’s stockpiling veteran stars past their prime. First was former five-time pro-bowl running back Frank Gore and now it’s the former Houston Texans wide receiver, Andre Johnson. Is Johnson worth a three-year $21 million gamble? Plus at this point in his career, is he really an upgrade over Reggie Wayne? We don’t think so.

The Return of Revis Island in New York

Revis Island has returned to New York. Gang Green and the free-agent cornerback Darrell Revis agreed to a five-year, $70 million deal with $39 million fully guaranteed, per a source involved. Revis will get $16 million annually in the first three years of the deal. Revis was negotiating for $16 million in 2013 when the Jets traded him.

Kelly Signs Running Back Ryan Mathews

The Eagles are like that relative at a family dinner that goes for seconds before anyone else has finished eating. On a day when DeMarco Murray visited the Eagles complex to finalize a deal, the team confirmed that former San Diego Chargers’ running back Ryan Mathews had also officially signed. Per sources, Mathews’ deal is worth $11.5 million over three years. Can Mathews replace LeSean McCoy? Head coach Chip Kelly better hope so.

Ryan Mathews signs with the Eagles. The terms are of the deal are three years for $11.5 million.
