At 4pm Free agency will officially start so lets kick it off with the two trades that happened yesterday:

Ravens Trade Boldin to 49ers for 6th Round Pick
Vikings Trade Harvin to Seattle for 1st Round Pick

I though free agency started at midnight on the new league year. Did they change that?

I was just curious because ESPN hasn't been freaking out over any signings yet. I remember a few years ago they exploded at midnight with all the player moves going on.

Seattle gave up a 1st and 7th this year and a conditional 3rd next year.

Plus they will have to give up a big contract too,

The Haynesworth 100 million deal to Washington was announced at midnight a couple of years ago.

I remember that. Thank god for the Redskins. Their awful spending sprees are the only thing that makes me feel better about the Cowboys choices.

that was one of the worst offseason Free Agency moves ever! Thats about as bad as paying 50mil for Jamarcus Russell, Almost!

didnt the giants already sign somebody the other day?

They can agree on offers, but can't sign until 4:00 today.

That's when the new league year starts, like a fiscal year but in football. If they agreed and signed before 4:00, it would be considered tampering because technically the player would then be the property of 2 separate teams.

Lol, baseball is America's favorite pass time....NOT. Screw baseball, basketball, hockey and every other sport. GIMME FOOTBALL! American style, not that pansy ass FUTBOL junk.

Baseball is the national pasttime, but football is national passion.

I would put Haynesworth above Russell, because there was no way to tell that Russell would be so bad coming out of college. He probably wasn't worth 50 million at any point, but no one could've expected him to be as bad as he was. Haynesworth had an NFL history of being a volatile player. I would link the curb-stomp he put on Andre Gurode (a cowboy incidentally), but I don't want to put anyone through seeing that again.

Haynesworth was voted the worst FA signing ever by the NFL network...I agree, what a total waste and he was a complete dbag.

Remember, the first 48 hours (or so) of Free Agency are a contest of "Who overvalues this player by the most."

Pray your team of choice doesn't sign anybody before the weekend.

I can't believe the Ravens let Boldin go to the 49ers... Look Flacco played well, but Boldin flat out made some crucial catches and IMHO was the most valuable player in the playoffs. Crazy move, IMHO.

I heard this morning on the radio that is because the NFL sent out a memo teams that if there were any free agent signing "leaks" they could be penalized draft picks.

Keller: Tough move, but as a Ravens fan I'm OK with it. They are losing Kruger likely the big sack pass rusher to CLE or IND for big money, Ed Reed, and possibly Ellerbe likely the heir apparent to Ray Lewis' MLB spot, 7M a year for a receiver is a huge amount for a slot receiver. I think they may be able to keep Ellerbe & Reed now that Boldin left. To me that is more important than Boldin, trying to repair the D after Ray Lewis' departure.

That SB isn't won without Boldin. He made an amazing catch to continue the drive. He was so strong, great hands, and really an elite TE playing WR in the slot. Boldin can't complain, he went from the best team in football, to next years best team in football. I'm surprised the Ravens couldn't get more compensation for him.

However, Joe still has Torrey Smith, Pitta (he'll take a lot of those Boldin passes), Jacoby DWTS Jones, Ray Rice, Ed Dixon (Oregon TE that was actually picked a round before Pitta same year and has been hurt). Ravens always do next man up.

AndrewA says:
Getting a sixth rounder for him was pretty much acknowledgement that they were going to let him walk anyways. Might as well get a tiny compensation than nothing at all.

Anyone gonna open up the brinks truck for Revis Island ? As well giving up half the draft as compensation ? Coming off a devastating knee operation he expects to be the highest defensive paid player in the game ?

I do think the Ravens maintain control of the division. I just don't trust the Bengals and the Steelers have many holes to fill. Way to early to start picking next year's SB winner, but the 49ers are going from great to greater.

I also think the Pats need to keep Welker. He is simply too reliable not to have on the team.
