The NFL’s legal tampering window for free agency opens on Monday, March 15 and that means that soon news will begin trickling in about who is going where this year. The Los Angeles Rams are again not expected to be heavy players in free agency, but they have a number of starters hitting the open market who might not return and they will also be working diligently to keep at least a couple of them.

The official beginning of free agency will happen on Wednesday, but there is about to be 48 hours of craziness ahead of that.

I will keep track of those signings and news related to signings in this post and if you catch anything that I didn’t see, add it in the comments.

Thursday, March 18, 2021

Bills sign QB Mitchell Trubisky

Raiders sign RB Kenyan Drake

Washington signs WR Curtis Samuel, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, CB William Jackson

Panthers sign OLB Haason Reddick

Vikings sign CB Patrick Peterson, DT Dalvin Tomlinson

Bengals sign CB Mike Hilton

Broncos sign CB Ronald Darby

Wednesday, March 17, 2021

Cardinals trade for C Rodney Hudson

Titans re-sign LB Jayon Brown

This is important intel for the Rams because it helps set a bar for signing a linebacker like Brown, which could be of some use to LA.

Cardinals signing WR A.J. Green

49ers re-sign LT Trent Williams

Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Seahawks sign CB Ahkello Witherspoon

Titans sign CB Janoris Jenkins

Dolphins sign QB Jacoby Brissett

Texans sign QB Tyrod Taylor

Jaguars sign WR Marvin Jones

Bears sign QB Andy Dalton

Bengals sign CB Chidobe Awuzie

Giants re-sign DL Leonard Williams

Jaguars sign CB Shaquill Griffin

Giants sign WR John Ross

Monday, March 15, 2021

Jets sign WR Corey Davis

Saints re-sign QB Jameis Winston

Jets sign DE Carl Lawson

Titans sign OLB Bud Dupree

Bucs re-sign TE Rob Gronkowski

Broncos sign CB Ronald Darby

Troy Hill’s agent is probably looking at these numbers.

Rams re-sign OLB Leonard Floyd

Gerald Everett posts apparent goodbye to LA

Patriots also sign WR Nelson Agholor, WR Kendrick Bourne

New England is by far the busiest team on Monday. They’ve overhauled much of their roster already and should look a lot different in 2021.

Raiders sign DE Yannick Ngakoue

Browns sign S John Johnson III

A difficult pill for the Rams to swallow, but a moment they’ve been trying to prepare for at least.

Chiefs sign G Joe Thuney

The first major OL domino to fall, Thuney will go to a team that is certainly capable of scoring points already. This helps offset recent releases by Kansas City but surely cost them a lot.

Jaguars sign DT Roy Robertson-Harris

This is a lot of money for a relatively unknown defensive lineman. More good news for Morgan Fox.

Patriots sign LB Matt Judon

The Patriots came in with $69 million in cap space and they’ve been using it: Jonnu Smith, Davon Godcheaux, and now Judon. It is unusual for Bill Belichick to be this spendy, but it is unusual times in New England. They also retained Cam Newton last week on a one-year deal but are likely still searching for QB help and just now have added cornerback Jalen Mills.

49ers re-sign CB Jason Verrett

Jags, Lions, Browns, Eagles show interest in S John Johnson

Patriots sign TE Jonnu Smith and NT Davon Godchaux

The first major free agent block to fall somewhere else than his original team.

Lions re-sign LB Romeo Okwara

Okwara getting $13 million per year could mean that Morgan Fox will be paid more than what we think.

Bucs re-sign LB Shaquil Barrett

It’s a huge contract for Barrett and the Bucs have managed to keep the band together.

Panthers sign OL Pat Elflein

Austin Blythe has been a little more successful than Elflein, so he should make more than three years and $13.5 million.

Cardinals re-sign LB Markus Golden

Are the Giants pursuing Leonard Floyd?

Adam Caplan tweeted on Sunday that Floyd to the Giants is something to “KEEP an eye on”.

Ravens sign G Kevin Zeitler

Baltimore doesn’t have to wait to sign Zeitler because he was released and not simply hitting the market with an expired contract. He was one of the top guards on the market.

49ers re-sign FB Kyle Juszczyk

On Sunday, the 49ers re-signed their fullback. Juszczyk had 19 catches for 202 yards and 17 carries for 64 yards with six total touchdowns last season.
