NFL Free Agency

The New Orleans Saints have restructured QB Drew Brees’ contract in order to free up more than $10 million in cap space. Brees’ 2019 cap hit will drop from $33.5 million to $22.7 million.

With Le’Veon Bell set to be the feature back for the upcoming season for the Jets, this means Isaiah Crowell’s time in New York is over. Crowell only played one season for the Jets and will surely be joining a new team in the coming weeks.

Former Redskins S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is heading to the windy city. He will join the already formidable Bears defense. He signed a 1 year/$3.5 million deal to roam the secondary at Soldier Field.

After the trade of Odell Beckham Jr., the Giants have signed their new #1 receiver. Golden Tate will join the G-Men on a 4 year/$37.5 million deal and will look to fill the enormous cleats that Odell left behind.

The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to a deal with DE Alex Okafor. The deal is for 3 years and up to $24 million.

QB Teddy Bridgewater is heading back to the bayou. After meeting with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Bridgewater has decided to sign a 1 year/$7.25 million deal to stay in New Orleans and back up Drew Brees.
