Free agency is definitely in full swing in the National Football League. Over the last two days many very notable names have switched teams.
One of the biggest names is wide receiver Wes Welker who is leaving Tom Brady in New England for Peyton Manning in Denver. The wide receiver who was eighth in receiving yards last year with 1354 yards, signed a two yer deal worth $12 million.
The Patriots then signed wide receiver Danny Amendola from the St. Louis Rams to a five year deal worth $31 million, who had significantly fewer yards than Welker, but is also four years younger too and could have greater upside with Brady instead of Sam Bradford at quarterback.
In other moves, the Atlanta Falcons have signed running back Steven Jackson from the Rams to a three year deal worth $12 million. The Falcons were looking for a running back after they released Michael Turner, but with Jackson comes a question mark if he is too much like Turner in the sense that he is on the downswing of his career.
Meanwhile the Detroit Lions have signed running back Reggie Bush from the New Orleans Saints and the Houston Texans have signed the biggest defensive name Thursday, safety and Super Bowl champion Ed Reed from the Baltimore Ravens.
